About that fake 97 percent number

Trutherator's Weblog

For a de-fake analysis of the fake 97 percent “consensus” number, see one of the web sites with this “truth vaccine” against official but lying numbers:

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/11/20/the-97-consensus-myth-busted-by-a-real-survey/

How about this for a vaccine, like it says about the alarmist trolls who planted the fake names in the Oregon list:

FOLLOW THE MONEY. If the money comes from politicians or governments who never rejected a cause for stuffing their favorite “cures” down our throats, or a cause to fill their buddies’ pockets, or from super-zillionaires who pretend to help the poor by building up their favorite crony governments and government policies, then just knowing that is a vaccine as well.

I frequently look for views that contradict my own and give a good eyeball at what can be extracted out as facts, as a good check on my own views.

And I’ll bet you that the test of these experiments did…

Idiot’s Corner

The Disgrace

Guns: Leave It To The Police

Stately McDaniel Manor

The police will protect us; they’re professionals!

Yes, it’s a backward mounted sight.

A primary, perennial argument of the anti-liberty Left (I know: redundant) is the great unwashed, the God and gun clinging denizens of flyover country, don’t need guns, in fact, they can’t be trusted with guns. They’re just going to shoot themselves, strangers, or members of their families! Leave it to the police. They’re highly trained professionals!

Politicized Sustainability Threatens Planet and People

THAT'S WHAT I'M SCREAMING

By: Paul Driessen

Politicized Sustainability Threatens Planet and People

Sustainability (sustainable development) is one of the hottest trends on college campuses, in the news media, in corporate boardrooms, and with regulators. There are three different versions.

Real Sustainability involves thoughtful, caring, responsible, economical stewardship and conservation of land, water, energy, metallic, forest, wildlife and other natural resources. Responsible businesses, families, and communities practice this kind of sustainability every day: polluting less, recycling where it makes sense, and using less energy, water, and raw materials to manufacture the products we need.

Public Relations Sustainability mostly involves meaningless, superficial, unverifiable, image-enhancing assertions that a company is devoted to renewable fuels, corporate responsibility, environmental justice, reducing its carbon footprint – or sustainability. Its primary goal is garnering favorable press or appeasing radical environmental groups.

Politicized Sustainability is the untenable, even dangerous variety. It relies on ideological assertions and theoretical models as an alternative to actual outside-our-windows reality and…

The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting

Cmblake6's Weblog

The Second Amendment was written to protect the rest. The First Amendment was FIRST to give the option of the government listening to the desires of We The People, and if they didn’t, voila’, the Second came into effect. I still say completely repeal the NFA34, and everything since related, but this is a start.

Dark Humor from the Socialist Hellhole of Venezuela

International Liberty

Back in 2015, I mocked Venezuelan socialism because it led to shortages of just about every product. Including toilet paper.

But maybe that doesn’t matter. After all, if people don’t have anything to eat, they probably don’t have much need to visit the bathroom.

The Washington Postreports that farmers are producing less and less food because of government intervention, even though the nation is filled with hungry people.

Venezuela, whose economy operates on its own special plane of dysfunction. At a time of empty supermarkets and spreading hunger, the country’s farms are producing less and less, not more, making the caloric deficit even worse. Drive around the countryside outside the capital, Caracas, and there’s everything a farmer needs: fertile land, water, sunshine and gasoline at 4 cents a gallon, cheapest in the world. Yet somehow families here are just as scrawny-looking as the city-dwelling Venezuelans waiting in bread lines or picking through garbage for scraps.

ObummerCare

Indyfromaz's Blog: The Thoughts of An Independent Arizonan

So this is what Democrats feel is wonderful and The Republicans refuse to deal with…
Next year, average benchmark premiums for Obamacare plans are expected to rise 15 percent more than they did this year, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office.

“In 2018, the agencies project, the average benchmark premium will be roughly 15 percent higher than it was in 2017.
Additionally, premiums for benchmark plans are expected to rise an average of 5 percent each year from 2017 through 2027.

The budget office projects that average premiums will total $3,400 for a 21 year old, $4,800 for a 45 year old, and $9,800 for a 64 year old this year.

So what happened to it going down $2500? Hmmmm???

Additionally, the report finds that due to higher premiums, the number of uninsured individuals is expected to increase.

“For 2026, the agencies’ projection of the number of people…

Keynesian Economics and the Fallacy of Boosting Growth by Destroying Wealth

International Liberty

Keynesian economics is like Freddie Krueger, constantly reappearing after logical people assumed it was dead. The fact that various stimulus schemes inevitably fail should be the death knell for the theory, which is basically the “perpetual motion machine” of economics. Indeed, I’ve wondered whether we’ve reached the point where the “debilitating drug” of Keynesianism has “jumped the shark.”

Yet Keynesian economics has “perplexing durability,” probably because the theory tells politicians that their vice of profligacy is actually a virtue.

But there are some economists who genuinely seem to believe that government can artificially boost growth. They claim terrorist attacks and alien attacks can be good for growth if they lead to more spending. They even think natural disasters are good for the economy.

I’m not joking. As reported by CNBC, the President of the New York Federal Reserve actually thinks…

New Hillary Emails Warrant Special Prosecutor

Socialism is not the Answer

American Thinker

New emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds. It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes:

About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,” he warned, “I’m going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there’s never been so many lies, so much deception.” …

“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Mrs. Clinton observed.

“Because,” Mr. Trump replied “you’d be in jail.”

The emails fully incriminating Hillary are part of…
