Kids And Dogs Won’t Know What Fire Hydrants Look Like

Won’t someone please think of the children? And dogs? The lack of snow so far this winter has made it easy for fire crews to access hydrants when they respond to fires. That could change if anywhere from six inches to more than a foot of snow falls, which would hinder access to hydrants, especially […]

Obama Admin. Not Looking To Lower Gas Prices

As DrewM points out, this should be in every GOP commercial from now till Election Day (Politico) The Energy Department isn’t working to lower gasoline prices directly, Secretary Steven Chu said Tuesday after a Republican lawmaker scolded him for his now-infamous 2008 comment that gas prices in the U.S. should be as high as in […]

Does The Individual Mandate Violate Contract Law?

An interesting point from the Institute For Justice (via Hot Air) If government-mandated health insurance is upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court after the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) case is argued in March 2012, the Institute for Justice warns in its amicus brief that there will be dire and predictable threats to […]

Why Is James Delingpole So Rude To Warmists?

Washington Post Provides Religious Test For Santorum

I’d be nice if some liberal somewhere actually read the Constitution now and then (WP) That Mr. Santorum believes he has the standing to declaim on the rightness of Mr. Obama’s faith, and whether it is sufficiently Bible-based, is in itself disqualifying. Funny how Obama’s religion wasn’t an issue in 2008, despite sitting in the […]

James Inhofe: Climate Realists Have Beaten Warmists On Cap And Trade

But, to my way of thinking, Realists have to keep the fight up against the Warmists, who will keep attempting to enact their legislation and regulation. I once asked Ed Morrissey, back when he was still at Captain’s Quarters, why he bothered exposing the 9/11 Truthers, since they were basically wackjobs and conspiracy nuts. He […]
