This guy is great. He even names names.
The United States produced enough energy to supply 84 percent of its needs in 2013 – This is truly great news.
While we should always be wary of advocating for the canard of “energy independence”purely for its own sake — because doing so means eschewing the competitive, price-controlling, and wealth-creating powers of free and open trade and instead inviting the protectionism that generally benefits special interests over all consumers — it’s always worth looking at just how far the United States has come in terms of oil-and-gas production capacity in just a few short years, both in terms of boosting our energy security with diversified sources (including ourselves) and for boosting our ability to compete in the global economy by growing our own.
ER use skyrocketing with Obamacare? – Of course. Overwhelmed ERs were supposed to get relief due to Obamacare, but the easily anticipated law of unintended consequences says otherwise. Obamacare reduces supply (fewer doctors willing to accept Medicaid and Obamacare plans) and increases demand (free money!). That couldn’t do anything but increase demand for ER visits. Were they foolish for not anticipating this? Probably, but the more likely scenario is that they knew but didn’t care. This is all about government control and single-payer. It was never about increased health care coverage.
Before you say, “That could never happen!,” remember that just a few years ago no one thought the government could force you to participate in a “same-sex marriage” and that if you refused you could be fined and either lose your business or be forced to go to “reeducation” training.
New study: relationship problems, not family rejection, leading cause of higher gay suicides – This is an important article, as it debunks many myths about the tragedy of gay suicides. Disagreeing with people does not make them kill themselves. Our media, entertainment and schools hate Christians but that doesn’t make me want to hurt myself. As the article shows, even those gay leaders trying to make a case for happiness end up wildly disillusioned.
I think that the problem is that in the gay lifestyle, you have a typically male emphasis on physical appearance, sex and pleasure. There is none of the moderating influence of women, which tends to push men into commitments, responsibility and stability.
If you really love a person, then you don’t tell them that the dangerous thing they want to do is not dangerous. That’s not love. It’s easier for you to approve of them and be liked by everyone, but it’s not love.
Causes of Death in 1900 vs. Today: One Chart Puts Firearms & Natural Disasters Threat in Perspective – Deaths from guns and natural disasters makes the news because they are rare, but the attention makes people think they are the real problem. Eating a little less and a little healthier and exercising a little more would save countless more lives than any counterproductive “climate change” or gun control measures.
What you’ll see is that America has been whipping infectious diseases for over a century, thanks to better sterilization, sanitation, and vaccination techniques, and now, Americans are living nearly twice as long. Currently, the average age is around 79 years old, and back in 1900, it was about 47 years old. Some “crisis” we have on our hands.
But it’s what you don’t see on this chart that is really the story. Natural disaster and extreme weather-related deaths don’t even make the chart.
In light of the federal government’s drive to enforce stricter environmental regulations for the reason of combatting manmade “climate change,” it should be said that 98% fewer people are dying from extreme weather events or natural disasters than in the 1920s. Extreme weather events currently comprise about 0.07% of all fatalities globally.
We’re also being told about the danger posed by law-abiding citizens possessing firearms. But where is that threat on this chart? Let me help you: It’s not there. Deaths from firearms totalled 31,672 in 2010 (just to keep the comparisons apples to apples). In that year, around 19,392 of those deaths were from firearms-related suicides (half of all suicides).
What about accidents? Around 570 of those were from firearms of a total of 126,100 accidents. Firearms murders, mostly by handgun, came to about 8,775 counts (of 12,996 total murders) in 2010, according to FBI statistics.
Where does this put these in the big picture? Deaths from heart disease in 2010 were 595,444 total, while deaths from cancer were 573,855. One factor for such high rates to keep in mind is that Americans are dying from causes that strike those who live longer than human beings ever did before (risk factors go up after age 47).
Boy Scouts’ Gay Leader Ban Preserves Worst Stereotypes, Holder Says – Kevin Johnson | God’s Politics Blog | Sojourners — Gee, why would the blog of Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis do a fluff piece like that? Because they are wildly pro-gay but trying to pretend they are not.
What is most despicable about this is that they are advocating to have homosexual men spend time alone — even on overnight trips! — with young boys. That’s just sick. Even honest gay leaders will tell you about how aggressively many gays will pursue young men.
Wallis & Co. just get more and more despicable. They actually think that being pro-abortion and pushing to have gays hang out with young boys is “social justice.” These Leftists mock God 24×7.
BRAZIL’S CHILD SEX WORKERS FORCED TO CASH IN ON WORLD CUP – What a tragedy. This will be even worse at the next Olympics. The numbers are staggering.
A good Hillary summary – Hopefully someone will throw a bake sale or something to raise money for her. Then again, your definition of “dead broke” is pretty elastic if it includes buying a second mansion so you can carpetbag your way into the Senate while your husband pulls down huge lifetime retirement payments.
- That she’s been an unethical liar since Richard Nixon was on the scene.
- That she’s tired of all you people asserting your constitutional rights and she wants to rein you in.
- That she misrepresents the words of Jesus to promote socialist economic policies.
- That just like the man whose right to counsel she tried to deny, she keeps an enemies list.
- That she whined about being broke after her husband drew a $400,000 a year salary for eight years running while the taxpayers were paying all their living expenses, and while she was drawing a salary as a U.S. senator and taking lucrative speech deals. And this is the woman who wants to be in charge of the federal budget.
- That her decisions concerning Cuba were disastrous failures.
- That her decisions concerning Boko Haram were disastrous failures.
- That her diplomatic efforts with Russia were disastrous failures.
- That her Obama Administration colleagues can’t think of anything she accomplished as Secretary of State.
- That her sycophantic fans at MSNBC can’t think of anything she accomplished as Secretary of State.
- That even she can’t think of anything she accomplished as Secretary of State.
