Government colleges and universities are some of the least free places in America. Now three professors co-teaching an online course called “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age” at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs have told their students that man-made climate change is not open for debate, and those who think otherwise have no place in […]

Data expert Tony Heller began scrutinizing government temperature data sets a few years ago. Heller has exposed many scandals involving the tendency of government agencies to ‘adjust’ the temperature record to bolster the claims of socialists that manmade-global-warming-by-CO2 will doom the earth unless governments take over all world industries.

During Hurricane Katrina, government troops erected roadblocks to keep out (private sector) rescuers. Government agencies wanted credit for any rescues. Entire trucks filled with needed supplies, such as Wal-Mart semis carrying bottled water to the Hurricane victims, were turned away. Government agents wanted to deliver water to the victims (albeit a few days later and […]
Trusters of government rarely think beyond what Thomas Sowell calls “Stage One.” The District of Columbia–like many regions of the United States–has recently enacted an increased minimum wage for all D.C. workers.
