If anyone doubts there’s a rebellion within the Republican party against the Rockefeller Republicans, you’ll want to read this. Note the date on it, also.

McQ puts up a few telling comments about Identity politics, in the context of the ever increasingly irrelevant “National Origination for (Leftist) Women.

Billy; While I do understand your disconnect here, give Reynolds a little credit… he’s clearly pointing at the hypocrisy of the whole thing.  That’s a valid angle as far as I’m concerned.  It’s certainly a comparison we’ve used often enough here.

This is not enviromentalism.   This a hatred of the humam species, misanthropy.  Tamara McLean, News(AU) COUPLES who have more than two children should be charged a lifelong tax to offset their extra offspring’s carbon dioxide emissions, a medical expert says.

McQ gets into a fairly well detailed examination of our energy policy woes: We hear (and have heard) political promises to make the US “energy independent” by x number of years coming from all the current presidential candidates.

Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters: As irrefutable evidence mounts that Nobel Laureate Al Gore’s climate alarmism is about nothing other than lining his supposedly green pockets with green currency, manmade global warming skeptics around the world wonder when the former vice president’s house of cards will collapse. Without question, if […]
