EPA Buries Their Own Report on Global Warming »

Among the many reasons I remain skeptical about Global Warming – excuse me, Climate Change – are the veracity and agendas of those promoting it.  Government, non-government and quasi-government organizations (like the UN) are spreading fear at every opportunity while jumping on the chance to grow their power and income. The EPA has been a […]

Enough Already »

Two days later and we’re still be bombarded by stories about Michael Jackson.  I grew up listening to the Jackson 5, loved Off the Wall and Thriller, but enough already.  Jackson was raised a Jehovah’s Witness, and was still one when he did the Thriller video, which is why he prefaced it with the disclaimer:  […]

Liz Becton – I Have a Name For Her »

I prefer to be called Dave, not David.  The first time someone calls me David I correct them with one word: “Dave.”  If they persist, it’s not a big deal. Her Royal Highness Elizabeth Becton, the office manager for Rep. Jim McDermot, has a different approach.  She gets snotty, pissy, bitchy, and just when you’d […]
