Our True Enemy: Political Correctness

Our True Enemy: Political Correctness

America has again had to face the reality of terrorism hitting our streets. The Boston Bombing was another wake-up call that we are under attack and the enemy walks among us, yet we are not supposed to admit who the enemy really is, at least not out loud.  We have a President who thinks that […]

Free trade is for idiots

For decades, globalists and libertarian free trade ideologues have been telling us that free trade has been “good” for America, that it’s a traditional conservative/Republican policy, and that any suggestion that America should protect its industry – i.e. protectionism – is a Big Government policy and a betray of “free market principles”. Free trade is […]

China to Help Fund Latest EU Bailout Package? No Deal

French President Nicolas Sarkozy placed a phone call to China’s President Hu Jintao after European leaders reached another last-minute deal to increase bailout funding in an attempt to tackle the regions worst debt crisis in over two decades. Apparently, Sarkozy’s pleas for China to contribute upwards of $100 billion (U.S.) to the EU bailout fund […]

Bin Laden Gets X’d By Time Magazine

Maybe not as well-known, but certainly as symbolic as Time’s “Man of the Year” covers, Time Magazine’s X covers have marked the historic end of American enemies. Osama Bin Laden is about to join the ranks of the famously X’d out. In May of 1945, the first of the X’s was Adolf Hitler shortly after […]

What is Nuclear Meltdown

News out of Japan is replete with the technical lingo of nuclear power generation: fuel rod, exposure, feed and bleed, hydrogen explosion and meltdown. While no one intends to become a nuclear physicist overnight, these terms are not as complicated to understand as many think. When understanding a Nuclear Reactor Meltdown, first consider what is […]

Feed and Bleed: Fukushima Reactor Cooling Still Dicey

In a maneuver called “feed and bleed” Japanese engineers are performing a hail Mary style attempt at cooling the troubled Fukushima reactor that has at least partially melted down. The technique involves feeding, or rather pumping, cold water into the reactor’s pressure vessel, but they can only do that for a short time. As the water hits the […]

Tsunamis Teach Lessons in Safety

Sen. Joe Leiberman appeared in an interview with Bob Schieffer on Sunday. In the interview, Leiberman made the case that the U.S. must reassess nuclear safety in the shadow of what happened in Japan. Is it reasonable to think we can harden our infrastructure against any possible future mishap? If we take the angle that […]

Japan Probably Experiencing Nuclear Meltdown

In the aftermath of the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan, another crisis is erupting. The Wall Street Journal has reported that a “Japan Nuclear Reactor May Be in Meltdown”. Japanese nuclear authorities said Saturday afternoon that a nuclear reactor about 150 miles north of Tokyo may be experiencing a meltdown after Friday’s massive earthquake damaged […]

Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami – Images, Videos and Timeline

Early in the morning U.S. Eastern Time, reports started coming in that a 7.9 earthquake had struck just off the Northern Coast of Japan. By the time I was able to start putting together a post, a Tsunami warning had gone out. Before I had finished the first sentence, the U.S. Geological Survey upgraded the […]
