Wind Farm Promotion Produces More Hot Air Than Energy

Wind Farm Promotion Produces More Hot Air Than Energy

I’m all for clean energy sources that have costs and efficiencies similar to coal and oil. The problem is, no such power source exists, and while solar power and wind farms are neat, they don’t do a whole lot to meet the energy needs of our 21st Century nation.

Paper Trail: Journalists Covered For Obama in 2008

Rush Limbaugh has long joked about and played audio clips illustrating the fact that the “mainstream” media frequently seems to be reading from the same talking points when it comes to elevating their favored liberal politicians and demonizing conservative ones.

Dems Hatch Plan to Restore Voting Rights to Convicted Felons

Democrats have a new election strategy they hope can pull their fat out of the fire and save their socialist agenda in 2010: let more convicted felons vote. It’s a pet project of a former member of President Obama’s domestic terrorist Bill Ayers’ group the Weather Underground. If you’re the party that sympathizes with lawbreakers over law-abiding citizens, what else can you do to win elections?
