Who is to Blame for Solyndra’s Bankruptcy? Oh, You Won’t Believe This One…

Who is to Blame for Solyndra‚Äôs Bankruptcy? Oh, You Won‚Äôt Believe This One…

I‚Äôm pretty sure that if someone invented a Gall-O-Meter and pointed it toward Washington, the resulting overload explosion would leave a Chicxulub-sized crater. The Department of Labor, headed by anti-capitalist Hilda Solis, has launched its own investigation into SolyndraScam. It‚Äôs not looking toward the White House or the “green jobs” loan program or the board [...]

All I Know of SolyndraScam is Now Yours

All I Know of SolyndraScam is Now Yours

I had planned a comprehensive post on the growing SolyndraScam story but I have to admit failure. Things are moving so quickly and in so many different directions that it’s hard for me to fix one particular narrative in the time I have during the day to write blog posts. Instead, let me put together [...]

Oil is The Newest Conscriptee in the President’s Strawman Army

Oil is The Newest Conscriptee in the President’s Strawman Army

Boy, our President just loves the false argument, doesn’t he? I suspect that some time in 2013, the next administration will announce it has discovered a new sub-basement in the White House in which it found row upon row of strawmen, lined up like the terra cotta soldiers of a Qin Emperor. Barack Obama runs [...]

Why Does the President Want Us to Buy More Oil From A Crazy Man?

Why Does the President Want Us to Buy More Oil From A Crazy Man?

I used to love the Weekly World News. I never minded handing over a couple bucks to learn where Bat Boy had landed to fight the Islamists or the latest “Dick Cheney is a Robot” story. Nearly every page entertained me and, since I‚Äôm already a fan of weird fiction, I could imagine a story [...]

Right On Cue: Democrats Want Us to “Put the Brakes” on Nuclear Power

| March 13, 2011 | Comments (0)

One of the things I didn‚Äôt mention in this post (which earned the much-coveted Instalanche), was the sneaking suspicion I had that the shoddy journalism in Japan was headed toward a certain conclusion. With all the panicky stories involving scary, but ultimately useless, words like “meltdown”, “radioactive”, and “elevated”, it was only a matter of [...]

So, Are We Talking “ZOMG MELTDOWN!” or What?

| March 12, 2011 | Comments (23)

Like many of you, I‚Äôve been watching the breathless news coverage of the potentially-catastrophic situation at Japan‚Äôs Fukijima Daiich nuclear plant. Like many of you, I watched the video of the explosion there and thought “Wow…that can‚Äôt be good”. But how “not good” is the situation there? Well, there we wade into incredibly murky waters.

Thune: I Can Haz Big Corporate Handouts Plz?

| December 2, 2010 | Comments (3)

I’ve been hearing a lot of John Thune buzz from conservatives in the blogosphere and on Twitter. Thune is a Republican Senator from South Dakota who has managed to work himself into the 2012 mix. He has some support among the folks on Red State, which is one of the more influential right-wing blogs, gotten some [...]

Is there No Limit to the Deviousness of the American Capitalist?

| October 12, 2010 | Comments (3)

Damn those American companies who take foreign money! Damn them to the hottest regions of the infernal! When will their treachery cease? In a different day and age, Jeff Hart would be the most famous American in our country right now. He would be honored at the White House. Schoolchildren would learn of his skill [...]
