You Know What Your Car Costs, But Not Your Heart Exam


The health care “debate” is made most irritating by the obvious things ignored. As we have grown accustomed to hearing ad nauseam, health care represents 17% of our economy. I have no idea if that number is accurate. Perhaps one day I will look into it. Whatever the number, we know it is big. Yet [...]

The East Anglia Revelations Have Not Changed My Mind, Part 1


On Fox’s Special Report Monday evening, Brit Hume made the central argument against the politics and science of global warming: its proponents have not yet made accurate predictions. Nor have they gotten the concept straight. Is “global warming” or “climate change” the problem?
