Obama Spends $967 Million to Create 10 Solar Energy Jobs

President Barack Obama has spent billions of taxpayer dollars trying to kill the oil industry in favor of green energy.  The shutdown of Solyndra has become the poster child of Obama’s failed green energy program. So perhaps Obama will start touting the success of the Aqua Caliente Solar Project in Yuma, Arizona.  Yuma is one of the sunniest places in America averaging 350 sunny days a year out 365.  Located in the Lower Sonoran...

The Story of Al Gore: A Big Bag of Wind Without A Sail

Adlai Stevenson said: “A hypocrite is the kind of politician who would cut down a redwood tree, then mount the stump and make a speech for conservation.” Hypocrisy and politics go hand in hand.

Government Hiding Inflation Behind Gas Prices

Texas oil production is higher than it’s been since 1985. It has doubled in less than three years, and the boom doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Meanwhile, gas prices keep going up. Why? The most major reason is inflation. If you look at an inflation-adjusted curve for gasoline prices, you’ll notice that inflation-adjusted prices have gone up and down over the past eighty years or so based on supply and demand, but during...
