Is It so Unreasonable that Rush Limbaugh Doubts NASA?

The media assumes it is comical and ridiculous that Rush Limbaugh doubts NASA on the presence of water on Mars. The people at Politico unquestionably enjoyed this brief jab at Rush Limbaugh: “Rush Limbaugh pans evidence of water on Mars as part of ‘leftist agenda’.” Flowing water on Mars? That’s just part of the liberal agenda, Rush Limbaugh says. The conservative radio talk show host addressed NASA’s announcement on Monday that it had found evidence of flowing water on present-day Mars, Read more […]

About that Disappearing Polar Ice

NASA finally shows us that the disappearing polar ice came back years ago and has grown larger than before. Al Gore and others of his tribe have assured us that the polar ice is receding, vanishing, melting… But then odd things happen. Sometimes we get reports that the polar ice cap is thicker than ever. Other times a ship, carrying researchers who want to investigate the disappearing ice, gets stuck trapped in the ice that is not supposed to be there. The reason, we are now told, is that Read more […]

Crony GOP Politicians Attack Private Business for Government

We have at least three GOP politicians who want to obstruct a private space travel company in order to give more business to NASA. You really know the world is twisted, not when you have Republican Congressman promoting a state agency by trying to use the law to hamper a private business (that probably happens more often than we realize), but when you have a defense of the free market posted at Slate: “Three Congressmen Are Using Red Tape to Bind SpaceX to Earth.” Hey, remember Sen. Richard Read more […]

The NASA Tower of Foolishness

The NASA tower was built and then mothballed, never used. Jesus once told a parable: For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, “This man began to build and was not able to finish.” (Luke 14:28-30 ESV). What does this have to do with NASA? The agency decided to build a tower and finish it, even Read more […]

Government Accuses Markets Of Inefficiency, While Burning Money

One of the most painful parts of the Obamasnare campaign (an area with lots of competition for first place) was Obama claiming that that the market was not efficient. It needed to be updated. All medical records needed to be digitized (the NSA completely approved of that idea), etc. Because information is imperfect, and for other reasons, it is completely possible to find inefficiencies in the market. But fixing those problems is often difficult. Those who do it successfully are commonly called Read more […]

Global Warming “Inexplicably” on Pause

Scientists riding the global warming bandwagon have puzzled for nearly a decade over why the increases of global surface temperature, which were the highest they’d ever been in the 1980s and 90s, slowed down to basically nothing in the 21st century. This slowdown actually prompted a change of nomenclature from “global warming” to “climate change” (which could conveniently mean basically anything). Well, a crack team of scientists finally has an answer for why global temperatures haven’t Read more […]

NASA Warns Of Mayan Calendar Hysteria

NASA is warning that the Mayan calendar predictions about the end of the world on December 21st pose real threats to children and depressed teenagers. They don’t actually think that the world is going to end. They’re warning that rumors of an apocalypse may actually frighten young people to death. The Daily Mail reported:  “David Morrison, an astrobiologist at NASA Ames Research Center, said on Wednesday that he receives a large number of emails and letters from worried citizens, most often Read more […]
