Steroid-addled Jose Canseco was pontificating about gravity and got called out on his physics by Bill Nye the bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering guy. Canseco fired back, peppering Nye with stinging hashtags.

Instead of doing something that might actually encourage economic growth and entrepreneurship in Maryland, Governor O’Malley has launched a cheesy gimmick to create the illusion of progress: The InvestMaryland Challenge.

This will certainly draw the obligatory ad hominem attacks from left wing Koolaid aficionados but if you pay attention you’ll see that even using the flawed assumptions of the global warming zealots, O’Malley’s PlanMaryland (a.k.a. Plan Fairyland) is a fraud. It’s a power grab masquerading as environmental policy. The math just doesn’t work. Here’s Governor […]

It seems like the standard method of conducting a study these days is to decide upon the result you want to get and then toss out any data which doesn’t agree with it. Draw the curve then plot the data points. When you see how easily this so-called study gets taken apart with just a […]
