gasoline

A columnist lets loose on cheap oil, showing hatred of corporations. Which, it turns out, means hatred of consumers. I’m not exactly shocked by this editorial, because it matches up with news I have read. But the sheer hysteria of

Electric Cars, Ethanol Harm the Environment

You have probably known this for a long time, but it is nice to see the Associated Press admit electric cars are not green. People who own all-electric cars where coal generates the power may think they are helping the

Barack Obama shows how Sarah Palin understood reality better than he does. In 2012, candidate and President Barack Obama decided to argue against the Republicans on energy. As the Daily Caller reports: it was just two years ago that President

The news that oil prices are going down for quite some time is being reported as a gamble by the Saudis, who are supposed to have had a heavy influence on OPEC’s decision not to stop production. As Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

New Fuel Prices Show Gov Doesn’t Know Future

gas tax

Recent fuel prices are spoiling the government’s plans for getting us all into alternative energy and other technologies they have been pushing on us. In every case, the government’s apologists and spokespersons claim, in the most condescending and pretentious manner

Do Lower Energy Prices Have a Downside?

Technically the answer to that question is yes. Lower energy prices have a downside for people who make more money from higher energy prices. Just like tailors suffered when the sewing machine was invented, or harvesters lost their income when

As the non-war war on ISIS/ISIL/IS/Wizard of OZ is getting warmed up, things are happening just as critics of the Obama Administration have predicted. The bombing runs carried out by the “coalition” — mostly the U.S. — have made some

I can’t believe how stupid some people can be. The Washington Times headline is: “Obama pleas to China, India to forgo use of coal falls on deaf ears.” Their ears are not deaf! The problem is not their ears but

I’m not too angry at the Russian government because 1) I already didn’t think too highly of the Russian government and 2) I know our government finances a lot of subversive activity over there. But it is important to know
