Who’s Tom Steyer?

If you don’t know Tom Steyer and his brother are the liberal equivalent of the Koch brothers, but of course since they’re liberal other liberals, including Democrats in office and media lackeys, have no problem with Tom Steyer and his big money, his corporate interests, and his politics, unlike what they have with, say, the […]

The Keystone block: All the risk, no reward.

It’s a shame that Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, et. al. spent so much time mimicking Democrats in demonizing Mitt Romney for being rich because if nothing else it takes their eye off the ball — defeating a quite weak President Obama by focusing their energies on his truly poor economic decisions. I realize that there […]

Obama energy policy yields all risk, no reward.

Great commentary by Sen. Lisa Murkowski regarding President Obama’s plan to enact a 5-year ban on all offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. To wit, it only applies to the United States. As we continue our endless debate on whether we should have more Outer Continental Shelf development and where, […]

Obama’s intangible cost-benefit analysis.

With a cost-benefit analysis system as obtuse and intangible as this, what’s the point of having one? Ah, but that indeed is the point, and exemplifies everything that is wrong with liberal government — all things are executed using the basis of immeasurable metrics. Here’s the Wall Street Journal commenting on President Obama’s recent executive […]

The drill baby drill void.

Hey, we can say no, but other countries will say yes. And, similarly, foolish governments and politicos, such as Florida’s Charlie Crist, can write legislation all they want denying American companies the ability to drill offshore, but that won’t do a damn thing for companies based in the UK, or China for that matter. Here’s […]

The more the media changes the more they fail Econ 101.

I have to admit, I never thought there’d come a day when I embed a Rachael Maddow video in this blog… There’s a lot of good points in that MSNBC video, but there’s also a healthy heaping of MSNBC lamestream media slant, and a typical Left wing ignorance of economics. Two quick points: (1) the […]

Obama’s moratorium endangers environment.

Ironically, the risk that another oil leak similar to the Deepwater Horizon has increased due to the Obama administration’s moratorium on deep-well drilling. Engineer Ken Arnold explains why to the WSJ: A big reason why those experts would have balked is because they recognize that the moratorium is indeed a threat to safety. Mr. Arnold […]

Count Obama’s whoppers from his BP speech.

There are lies, there are damned lies, and there’s Barack Obama. His presidential address to the nation regarding the BP Deepwater Horizon oil leak was filled with some big fibs. Starting with: “But make no mistake:  We will fight this spill with everything we’ve got for as long as it takes. .. And we will […]

Big government Libs bait & switch tea party arguments via the oil leak.

The Obama administration is feeling a lot of heat regarding their reaction to the continued oil leak in the Gulf. Rather than be the executives who, you know, execute action to solve a problem (hence, The Executive Branch) the Obama administration is instead focusing on “whose ass to kick” (i.e., lawsuits — and what else […]

Obama, investigate thyself for BP ties.

Here’s a hoot, the U.S. Justice Department announced it will begin a fishing expedition to see if there was any criminal activity in the British Petroleum’s (BP) Deepwater Horizon oil spill. “If we find evidence of illegal behavior, we will be extremely forceful in our response,” Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. said in New […]
