  • Sailing Ships to return because UN Climate Change

    Dec 8, 2018 @ 1:08 am - Alain

    A UN org. is the International Maritime Org. In April of this year, it agreed that Cargo Ships should reduce carbon emissions 50% by 2050. Also, ships should switch to low sulfur diesel fuel.
    Low sulfur fuel is better but more expensive. The Climate Change initiative to reduce carbon emissions is nuts. To address, ship builders are turning to sail technology. This will drive up the cost of everything. Consumer Cost is not seen as issue by UN because this is viewed as saving the world. Don't know where U.S. was on this.

  • Virginia high school teacher fired for refusing to use transgender student's new pronouns

    Dec 7, 2018 @ 9:28 pm - Maynard

    I can't form a clear conclusion without knowing the full background (there are special cases), but the general idea of a 9th-grade student (this would be about 14 years old) being enabled by adults and institutions to move into a transgender framework seems a likely case of child abuse. At this age, children are not ready to make these decisions. To destroy a teacher's career for failing to embrace child abuse seems criminally insane on the face of it. Seems modern institutional employees are now living in fear of having their lives ruined, which is a rather ironic consequence of policies that claim to promote universal “tolerance” and “acceptance”.

  • Marc Lamont Hill's long, bizarre history of anti-Israel bigotry

    Dec 2, 2018 @ 4:45 am - Shifra

    Marc Lamont Hill was fired from CNN after speaking at an anti-Israel event at the U.N. last week. Leftists are trying to portray this as his being fired for merely criticizing Israel. But he has a long history of spewing lies, conspiracy theories and anti-Israel venom. This was the “last straw.”

  • Amazon Alexa devices are breaking out into spontaneous creepy laughter

    Nov 24, 2018 @ 1:06 am - Maynard

    Seriously, people, when you leave devices all over your house that listen to you 24 hours a day and are connected to the entire world, you're inviting all sorts of nonsense into your home. Once upon a time we used to worry about the government surveilling us; these days we surveil ourselves.

  • A West Texas Oil Story

    Nov 19, 2018 @ 2:48 pm - dennisl

    The author, Williamson, knows exactly what's happening out there in Midland, he's from West Texas(Muleshoe). Kevin paints an excellent overview of the Football Culture and then the real story of that region. Back in the day, I had to go out there to service computers, and can tell you that flying in from Dallas(on Southwest) into Midland was like going into the middle of the American desert; which it is. On another note, Rick Perry, former governor of the Great State of Texas is Secretary of the Department of Energy, remember: American World Energy Dominance.
