The Future of Journalism & Washington’s War on Advertising -- If you want a look at the near future, look at the Catholic Church's attempts to keep control of the "narrative" in the 1500's, when printing presses became widespread. Hint: do the words The Reformation mean anything to you? As the saying goes, "the bell can not be un-rung." The Conservative New Media are the New Protestants, rebelling against the catholic belief in "progressivism." And so, ironically, the "progressives" actually are the conservatives, now, and the "conservatives" are now the radicals--the liberals if you will. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

The Gulf - It Is Worse Than We Thought -- So, tell me again how drilling in ANWR or off the coast of California within sight of the beaches would be worse than this? At least in those places, there would be a better chance of controlling and containing any such disastrous oil leak.

We're not going to be able to snap our fingers and get off of dependency on hydrocarbons for energy in one decade, or even two. The avaliable alternatives (primarily nuclear fission, quite honestly) are inadequate. The proposed "renewable" options are not yet available, AND won't be adequate to meet any foreseeable global energy demand. We're going to burn a lot of oil, gas, and coal before we're able to transition off of them to something else.

That's the cold, hard, inalterable fact that Obama and his ilk absolutely, positively refuse to even concede. That just makes them unreasonable and irrational. None Dare Call Him Gasbag

The moral of the story here is not new, but bears repeating: If you are at all dependent on the state, whether by choice or force, and you don't have the good manners to be powerful, you will always stand the risk of being treated like a patient at a criminal asylum. It is as good a reason as any other to resist further encroachment of the government on our private lives.
