London Daily Mail now admits that the case for co2-driven-global-warming is weakening; most American papers continue censoring “skepticism”

The London Daily Mail now prints articles admitting, at least, that manmade global warming has “slowed.” Most major U.S. newspapers (like most major papers in the world) continue to conceal and censor information questioning the major-government position on “climate change.” For example, the LA Times, America’s third largest paper in terms of circulation (though its …

Federal Employees Are Now so Overpaid that Federal Agencies Set Job Applicant Limits

Statistically, a federal employee is more likely to die than to quit. Federal employees are paid so much that many hundreds–or even thousands–of applicants now apply for some federal openings, such as openings in the U.S. Postal Service.

Over time, almost every government comes for all money, all freedom, all property, and to kill all who resist.

Two Phenomena That May Be Related: Voters Becoming Overwhelmingly Libertarian, Democrats Becoming Old and Tired

Economist John C. Goodman is out with an interesting column stating that libertarian voters outnumber conservatives and liberals. Specifically, “38 percent of the public identifies as “conservative” and 24 percent as “liberal” in the latest [Gallup] poll,” while at least one major [2006 Cato Institute/Zogby] poll found that fully 59 percent of Americans say they …

When MSN Claims Research Was “Silenced,” This Merely Means That Government Funding Was Cut

Today’s headline on MSN News reads: “Gun owners face much higher murder risks, researchers said. Then the NRA silenced them.” Wow. The National Rifle Association “silenced” research. But the article’s details show no support for such a headline. The story is about governmnt funded “disease research” during the 1990s that pronounced such things as that …
