Integrity Is a Real Pain in the Arse

Integrity is a real pain in the arse – my integrity is always getting in my way.

I know, that’s a weird thing to say but it’s true – if I didn’t have integrity I would likely have doubled my followers in social media, grown my radio show in an epic way and not have spent two months being threatened with death and all sorts of other unpleasant happenings. BUT OH NO, freakin’ integrity gets in the way.

See, I could have jumped on that ol’ Trump Train like so many other mid-level pundits did but I chose not to. And believe me, when you work in any type of media you pick and choose what you will and will not “cover” for readers and listeners. Anyone telling you otherwise is delusional or full of it. But with Trump, there was just so much wrong with him and his campaign…

Wind Turbines are supposed to save CO2

windfarmaction

deicing wind turbines

The energy required for a helicopter to de-ice all the blades on a wind farm must outweigh any supposed saving in CO² by a factor of 100 or more. Notwithstanding that no wind farm has saved a gram of CO² due to construction and the necessary spinning reserve.

HUMAN STUPIDITY KNOWS NO LIMITS

The entire rational for wind turbines is to stop global warming by reducing the amount of Co2 being returned to the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels.

In the attached picture, recently taken in Sweden, freezing cold weather has caused the rotor blades of a wind turbine to ice up bringing the blades to a complete stop.

To fix the “problem” a helicopter is employed (burning aviation fuel) to spray hot water (which is heated in the frigid temperatures using a truck equipped with a 260 kW oil burner) on the blades of the turbine…

Good News and Good Laughs for Supporters of the Second Amendment

International Liberty

I almost feel sorry for the gun-control crowd.

They keep trying to convince themselves that people are on their side, but schemes to restrict the 2nd Amendment keep getting defeated on Capitol Hill.

And when a handful of state governments go against the trend and try to trample on constitutional rights to gun ownership, politicians get tossed out of office and gun owners engage in massive civil disobedience.

Now we get to the icing on the cake.

The New York Times just released polling data showing that a majority of Americans are against banning so-called assault weapons. Look at the bottom line and see how the numbers have dramatically moved in the right direction.

These results are especially remarkable because many non-gun owners probably think “assault weapon” refers to a machine gun.

In reality, the types of guns that some politicians want to ban operate the same as other…

An Interesting grammatical argument on the 2nd Amendment.

Old Fool on the Hill's Blog

I was just reviewing my list of blogs that I follow and came upon this article at Sufficient Reason and thought I would share it.  I hope those who have any opinion on the 2nd Amendment will read it, visit Sufficient Reason and leave their thoughts – pro or con – so long as those comments are civil and thoughtful.

Let’s All Be Like Thomas

Beethead Media

For a long while it’s bugged me that the apostle Thomas’ name has gone the way of a byword. “Don’t be a Doubting Thomas,” some wryly throw about. It’s like what has happened to Albert Einstein – for such an intelligent man, we only use his name as a sarcastic insult directed at “stupid” people. Today, I think Thomas is the apostle we should most aspire to be like. And I’ll tell you why.

What Uber Can Teach Us About American Government

Brian Ruddock

uber nycUber has been the target of politicians seemingly from the second it came to market. New York mayor Bill de Blasio has taken his bullying a step further than most pols, and thankfully Uber is pushing back. While the outcome of this battle remains unclear, Uber v. New York can teach us quite a bit about the current state of American government and politics.

THE SITUATION IN NEW YORK

New York City has over 8.5 million residents. Its subway system is among the best in the world but remains overcrowded, unreliable, and, at later hours, unsafe. The city’s bus system is similarly well-designed, but even in conjunction with subways, is not a sufficient solution for many New Yorkers’ travel needs.

Taxis are controlled by the city of New York; supply is artificially constrained by making would-be drivers pay exorbitant licensing fees that can cost in the tens of thousands of…
