"Republicans Need to Move More to the Center" - RedStickBR
How many times have we heard that? But with Republicans holding the most House seats in seven decades, 60% of state governorships, and the most state legislative seats since 1928, have the tables turned? Could it possibly be that Democrats are due for a move towards the center after giving us (ideol...

Joan Walsh Criticizing Jeb's "Evolution" on Gay Marriage - RedStickBR
Jeb's recent stance in support of gay marriage is "drastically different than his stance in" ... wait for it ... 1994! So Obama pulls a 180 over a two year period (once it's become politically expedient) and it's a beautiful thing but Jeb evolves over 20 years and he must be lying. She is the ...

Climate and Truth: A Tale of Immorality? - RedStickBR
This latest discovery of "scientists" cooking the ocean acidification books has presented quite the platform for AGW skeptics to lay the smack down on the warmists. This read continues to deliver: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2015/01/02/climate-and-truth-a-tale-of-immorality/ At what point do tr...

Google: Good at Internet, Bad at Elementary Logic - RedStickBR
Despite having launched a renewable energy program years back but then pulling the plug on it after realizing (a) large scale renewable energy is not economically viable today and (b) we would get more return on our investment making fossil fuel generation cleaner than by pouring untold billions in ...

Remember the walrus epidemic that was reported as evidence of Global Warming? - RedStickBR
As it was reported, there was a massive number of walruses found on a thin segment of land off the Alaskan coast that was widely reported by the media and scientific alarmists as an unqualified symptom of global warming. Well, as it happens, Canadian zoologist, level-headed climate scientist, and "P...

Policing in New York City - RedStickBR
New York employs broken-window policing, a philosophy implemented by Rudy Guiliani which punishes low-level crimes (like selling untaxed cigarettes) with harsh penalties. The thought goes that being extremely strict on things like graffiti and panhandling will result in a more orderly society, which...

Someone Please Explain How Glenn Beck Does It - RedStickBR
Dude made $90mm in 2013ish? Wasn't he a sub-par commentator back in his Fox days, and now the guy has apparently put together a media empire that is outearning even Oprah Winfrey. Despite what you think of the guy, that's impressive, but how the hell has he pulled this off? Dude must have raised som...

Let's Talk Assisted Suicide - RedStickBR
I attempted to bring this up in the Robin Williams thread but that thread was admittedly going in a completely different direction. If you're for big government and restrictions on individual liberties, I can see why you'd agree with the prevailing norm that assisted suicide clinics be generally...

How did the IRS emails disappear? - RedStickBR
I know this post title seems remarkably simple-minded, but I'm actually curious how anyone can explain this barring intentional misconduct. To start, there are two copies of every email - one for the sender and one for the recipient. Secondly, the IRS is almost definitely backing up their data, a...

Short and sweet perspective on the labor market - RedStickBR
We're back to where we were before the recession, but still some 5.9M jobs short of where we would be had the recession not occurred. While it may be unreasonable to assume we will get back to that prior growth trajectory, given we did have a recession, we still have a lot of making up to do to get ...

Lawyer question - RedStickBR
I only post this here because I'm still slightly scared of the OT. I have a friend who keeps receiving bills from United Healthcare for someone who has the same first name as his child, but who is not his child. Apparently, the company has his child confused for someone else. And apparently, this...
