Andrew Follett: Obama Policies Exacerbate Wildfires

It is not global warming.      Scientists and lawmakers are placing the blame for recent wildfires on President Barack Obama’s policies, not global warming. “Our nation’s forests are sick and flammable, but they don’t have to be. Proper management would increase their resilience to wildfires.” said Julia Slingsby, Press Secretary of the House     ... MORE

Matt Stevens: The Unintended Consequences Of Conserving Water: More Leaky Pipes, Less Revenue, Lots Of Bad Odors

A corrosive policy in more ways than one.  Under orders to slash water use amid a historic drought, cities and towns across the state saved about 75 billion gallons in July, eclipsing Gov. Jerry Brown's once-daunting order for a 25% reduction. But, in a paradox of conservation, water agencies say the unprecedented savings — 31% in July over July  ... MORE

A. Barton Hinkle: Bipartisan Hypocrisy on Free Speech

Do conservatives owe the Dixie Chicks an apology?     It sure looks that way.

The whole Cruz phenomenon reminds me of the billionaire industrialist who invited 50 of his most important business friends on a hunting trip in Maine. As dusk began to set in, their guide      ...

Blow Off Pampered Greenies, Build Keystone XL

by Katie Kieffer.  Recycling is fine. Conservation is fine. But sometimes greenies cross the line. They expect you and me to go jobless and hungry so they can save a porcupine. President Obama has been pampering his radical greenie friends for far too long. Even the Presidents’ State Department has thrice declared Keystone XL to be      ... MORE

Walter E Williams - Understanding Economics

Here's a question:    If there's a disaster, a war, a severe drought or some other calamity that restricts future supplies of a commodity — such as oil, coffee or corn — what is the intelligent thing for people to do right away? If you said "use less now and try to produce more," you'd be absolutely correct. That's not rocket science, but         ... MORE
