To Believe Or Not To Believe, That is The Question

I have noticed that people tend to believe what Barack Obama says when they want to believe him, and those same people conveniently ignore the things he says that they don’t want to believe. Well, that’s not unusual. Most of us believe what we want to believe and ignore the rest. For example, when people…

Who’s Making A Killing In Gasoline Sales?

Well, let’s see. ExxonMobile maybe? Here’s what they say on the ExxonMobile Perspectives Blog….wait, what is this blog? It’s a blog by ExxonMobile that, as they themselves say it, “offers our company’s views on the issues, policies, technologies and trends that are shaping the energy industry.” This is refreshing.

Keynes vs. Hayek Duke It Out

Keynes: Government should just spend, spend, spend and we’ll all be rich and prosperous. Hayek: Government has no money to spend without taking it away from someone else.

Happy Easter!

In varying ways they realized the new wonder; but even they hardly realized that the world had died in the night.  What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden,…

More DUI Convictions Thrown Out Because of Defective Breathalyzers

I’m a broken record on this but I will say it again: DUI laws are a horrible injustice because convictions are based on blood alcohol levels and not actual impairment. That’s important because when it comes to human physiological reaction to alcohol all are not the same and impairment among individuals occurs at different levels…

I’m Not a Birther — Am I?

Because I know that “birthers” are kooks I swear I’m not one of them. I should not even bring up the fact that Obama refuses to release his original birth certificate because that alone could make me a kook or at least “sorta nutty” in the eyes of some people. But then there is this.…
