Omicron spreads. The media say, "Governments must act!" Many have, bringing back mask mandates and closing schools. Do these rules work? No. My new video shows why Florida's approach is better.
Gov. Ron DeSantis ended pandemic restrictions last spring and refuses to impose new ones. "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and ...Read more
Glenn Youngkin recently was elected Virginia's governor partly because he promised to ban teaching of CRT. CRT stands for critical race theory, which argues that every American institution upholds white supremacy. Before Youngkin's surprise victory, the media mocked him for complaining about CRT. NBC's Nicolle Wallace said it isn't even taught ...Read more
Independents are now America's largest group of voters. After George Bush's presidency, fewer people called themselves Republicans. After Obama's, fewer called themselves Democrats.
How will these independents vote? Andrew Yang hopes they'll vote for him.
In my latest video, the former Democrat explains why he's started a new party, the ...Read more
It's the season for giving. I'll give. This week I'll donate to the Doe Fund, a charity that helps drug users and ex-cons find purpose in life through work. "Work works!" they say. It sure does. Most Doe Fund workers find more joy in supporting themselves than they ever found in drugs.
I'll also donate to Student Sponsor Partners, a ...Read more
When people criticize Dr. Anthony Fauci, he says: "They're really criticizing science. Because I represent science." Pretty arrogant.
I assume Fauci is a top-notch scientist. My brother worked with him at the National Institutes of Health and respected him. But power tends to corrupt, and Fauci has been given a lot of power. His department ...Read more
COVID-19 deaths are up. Politicians tell us to wear masks and get vaccinated.
Amid the fear, I'm surprised that we haven't heard more about two drugs that could make COVID-19 much less of a threat.
In blind tests, Pfizer's Paxlovid was found to reduce the risk of hospitalization and death by 89%! It was so effective that Pfizer was advised to ...Read more
People want "public" rather than "private." Public is ... free, right? Wide open. Sharing. Available to everyone. All good things. "Private" is ... selfish, closed, for the rich. Clearly, public must be better.
But then why do the words "public toilet" make me cringe? I think: dirty, smelly, ugly, maybe dangerous. Lots of people think that.
I ...Read more
I've reported how Facebook censors me. Now I've learned that they also censor environmentalist Michael Shellenberger, statistician Bjorn Lomborg and former New York Times columnist John Tierney. Facebook's "fact-checkers" claim we spread "misinformation."
In my new video, Tierney argues that the "people guilty of spreading misinformation are ...Read more
Happy Thanksgiving! But beware the "tragedy of the commons." It almost killed off the pilgrims. Now, via Washington, D.C., it's probably coming for us.
Tragedy of the commons is a concept from an essay by ecologist Garrett Hardin. He wrote how cattle ranchers sharing a common parcel of land soon destroy that land. That's because each rancher ...Read more
"Why does Louisiana have the right to stop me from doing what I love to do?" asks Ursula Newell-Davis in my new video.
Newell-Davis has helped people. She's a social worker who's worked with kids with special needs for 20 years. She's really good at it.
"She helped teach me how to talk to people," says Kamal, who never had friends before.
As Virginia's gubernatorial election drew to a close last week, Democrat Terry McAuliffe brought in teachers union president Randi Weingarten.
He thought that would help?
I suppose he, like many progressives, believes everyone thinks the way he does.
"I'm not going to let parents come into schools and ... make their own decisions," he'd said....Read more
We're out of Afghanistan. Good. We should have gotten out before.
Our involvement there was America's longest war, longer than the Civil War, World War I and World War II combined. We accomplished little good and plenty of bad. Tens of thousands killed. A trillion dollars spent.
Now the Taliban wear American uniforms and fly American ...Read more
Democrats say President Joe Biden won "a strong mandate." His government can do all sorts of good things!
I don't believe he has a mandate, but thanks to the selfishness of former President Donald Trump, Democrats control Congress, and that may give them power to shove their worst ideas down our throats. Those include:
No. 1: Hate speech laws....Read more
