Most thinking people care very little about the virus anymore. It appears to be a dud. If it were a bio-weapon, it would be singularly weak terrorism — a pellet gun against a half-ton Kodiak bear. The thick fur of herd immunity appears to have protected humanity as it has for thousands of years. What..

Good science lands the plane, bad science takes the credit.. In a decidedly more optimistic and productive world, (a few months ago), I purchased a fantastic new drone called the Mavic 2 Pro which makes taking aerial video absurdly easy — even for someone with questionable hand-eye coordination like myself. The science behind it is..
I hate to say it, but.. I really wish I didn’t have to feel vindicated, but even if you are a high level manager at a big corporate outfit, even if you have worked passionately in the private sector and you know the value of free markets, competition, and capitalism, even if you run a..
If they were ever foolish enough to give me a House Speaker press conference pass, that would be the first question I would ask.. (more…)

Most of the law enforcement officers I know are fantastic people, but it may be time to remind a few of them: THIS is not the right use of your time. If you get orders to arrest people simply going about their lives, screw up your courage, and go get a rapist, or a murderer,..
They really must hate feeling like little Hitlers.. So I’m in Facebook jail again for 3 days. I shared a picture a friend sent me. I’m guessing the sort of people who would turn people in for playing in a park or giving someone a haircut don’t like, not even a little bit, that cringe-twinge..
Pay Attention Now.. Dig up ancient injustice and dwell on it. Identify “villains” who were operating under the moral and legal standards of their day. Use it to crucify, blacklist, and terminate the innocent grandchildren of those “villains” and reward people who were never the victims of those “villains.” If you want to get ahead..
Are you a free thinker? Think again.. I have a friend on Facebook who obviously reads a great deal of history, and he posts some terribly challenging facts from time to time. It doesn’t matter which characters from the past you revere, whether its Martin Luther or Martin Luther King, Malcolm X or Malcolm Muggeridge,..
