Conservative monster under the GOP bed

09-Mar-10

The voice of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is daytime talk radio where people like Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, Boortz, and others do their thing.  Here’s what I’m hearing lately: The GOP is dry-mouth scared that conservatives are going to abandon them this fall.  The fear is real and not at all unfounded. The GOP has […]

Hiring giants

08-Mar-10

The Hebrews of 1100 B.C. were as honest as anyone has ever been about what they wanted from their government.  They applied to Samuel the judge and prophet and said, “Make us a king so we can be like the other nations around us, and he can judge us and fight our battles for us.”  (1 […]

The two big issues in the warming debate

07-Mar-10

The big issue of unreliable data There are four basic positions on global warming. 1.  The earth is warming and man is causing it.   2.  The earth is warming as a result of natural forces.  3.  The earth is not warming.   4.  We can’t tell.  Most likely winner in the reality contest: Option Four.  A review […]

Be like that

05-Mar-10

The psalmist’s descriptions of the righteous man are mostly descriptions of Christ.  They’re intended to inspire worship by stating the standard and leaving it to the wise reader to realize that only one Man has ever satisfied the standard.  Here’s one of the short ones, Psalm 15: O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent?   Who […]

04-Mar-10

If you watch energy news for any length of time, you’ll see members of Congress proposing new energy standards for this or that appliance.  Why are they doing this?  Simple: Because the efficiencies won’t pay for themselves on energy savings.  The only way to get a sale for a product that is more expensive but […]

Painting idylls at the landfill

02-Mar-10

Business buzzword Business managers for a long time have been overusing the word “excellence” in an attempt to get their employees to think in terms of doing their best.  Ford Motor Company tried this a few years back with their “Quality is Job One” slogan.  Zenith, the TeeVee manufacturer, used to advertise that the quality […]

Superb summary of ClimateGate

01-Mar-10

The British Telegraph has the best-yet summary of ClimateGate’s intrigues.  The errors outed since ClimateGate began tick off all the central, iconic issues of the entire global warming saga. Apart from those non-vanishing polar bears, no fears of climate change have been played on more insistently than these: the destruction of Himalayan glaciers and Amazonian rainforest; […]
