>Global Warming Ate the Science

>The next time you hear about anthropogenic global warming or global climate change, demand to see the data. It no longer exists.

>Daschle/Dole/Baker! Health care on the fast track -along with the entire Nation’s finance

>Right after this Yellow Brick Award ceremony, I’m thinking that it may save my life for me to learn to use Twitter and Facebook. Now. While President Obama is planning to take over the entire finance world ASAP, ABC is planning their all-day infomercial for Obama and his push – there is no “plan,” yet … Continue reading

>Obama will fund more losing embryonic stem cell research (New Yellow Brick Award to the President)

>ScienceDaily, a website that often carries news headlines and just about any press release anyone sends them, has topped themselves today with a blurb suggesting that same sex civil unions are a “600 year old tradition.” We know that homosexuality has been around at least since Exodus was first related, and murder and lying are … Continue reading
