There’s a Washington Post report that the WSJ op-ed proposal is much more than just an op-ed. There is an organized political move underway to make this happen. The WaPo report mostly focuses on the carbon tax and dividend, fails to mention Pillar 3 on border adjustments, and is unspecific about the proposed regulatory rollback.… Read More »
The Wall Street Journal (who else?) ran an op-ed titled, “A Conservative Answer to Climate Change”. The good news is that George Schultz and James Baker III are taking climate change seriously enough to propose doing something about it. The bad news is that the proposal is about as close to doing nothing as is… Read More »
I’ve managed to lay my hands on a Nikon P900 digital camera. This is prosumer bridge-style camera with an exceptionally long zoom range, a 4.3 to 357mm f/2.8-6.5 lens with a full-frame 35mm equivalent view of 24-2000mm. It serves up 16 megapixels. I haven’t done much with it yet, but I thought I would make… Read More »
Over on Facebook, there’s discussion of the federal Department of Education, and a commenter there said she would like to see the department go away and parents get school vouchers.

As Trump maneuvers the transitional ship-of-state, though, the exploration will turn the unknown into the known. Most of the time, transitions are dull as dishwater, producing little in the way of novelty. This one, though, is doing things never… Read More »
I note that estimable source of journalism on American politics today, UK’s The Guardian, on the outcome of the US presidential election. Donald Trump shattered expectations on Tuesday with an election night victory that revealed deep anti-establishment anger among American voters and set the world on a journey into the political unknown. Good morning and… Read More »
Antievolutionists Say the Darndest Things
Antievolutionists often express outrage over alleged incivility from those who oppose their efforts to evade the establishment clause of the First Amendment. But they have no difficulty in dishing out the abuse themselves. Here is a sample from the Invidious Comparisons thread that documents egregious behavior on the part of the religious antievolution advocates.
IDC advocate William A. Dembski:
Dembski, whose recent book, "The Design Inference," presents in great detail how the Intelligent Design argument satisfies logic and probability, likes to compare the movement's influence on science to the freedom and democracy movements and their effect on Eastern Europe. Criticism of Darwinism now threatens the hegemony of Darwinism, he says, just as the move toward freedom upset the Soviet empire.Link
