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

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

I’m 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’s not looking toward the White House or the “green jobs” loan program or the board [...]

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 [...]

As Tax Increases Go, This One Would Be A Humdinger.

If I hadn’t seen this at The Hill, I would have sworn it came straight from The Onion. The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive. The plan is a part of the [...]

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’m 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’t 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?

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

Well, this is a promising sign. President Obama is announcing funding to break ground on the first new nuclear power plant in nearly three decades.  In Lanham, Maryland Tuesday morning, Mr. Obama will announce the first loan guarantee for the construction and operation of two new nuclear reactors at a Southern Company plant in Burke, [...]

Is it too much to ask that the President’s Energy Czar, whatever the hell that is, actually read the entire bill she is lobbying so hard to get through Congress? Well, if you ask her, and Steve Doocy did, it’s horribly unfair to even ask the question. Doocy asked her five times and she managed [...]
