I’m an avowed skeptic on anthropogenic climate change. Sure, humans might be responsible for some negligible shift in global temperatures.

I also believe that the climate is supposed to vary over time; this is to be expected, not feared.
The FreedomCast: Episode 10 - Jonathan Last on the Coming Demographic Disaster in America
Washington, DC- Following the conclusion of President Obama’s State of the Union address, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe released the following statement: “As I listened to the President tonight, I wondered if we were discussing the same Union.

Washington, DC- FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe issued the following response to President Obama’s State of the Union attacks on the promised sequester savings: “Congress doesn’t have a sequestration problem; they have a sequestration promise to keep to the American people, one that the President supported on the campaign trail before he was against it.

Indiana Takes the Lead on Reforming Occupational Licensure
The Indiana legislature is considering a new bill that would cause license requirements for certain professions to automatically expire every five years unless members of that profession can provide a convincing reason why the requirement should remain in place. This would mark a major reform to the way license requirements are currently handled, where a licensed profession tends to remain that way for perpetuity, with few attempts even to question the wisdom of such policies.
Ohio Governor John Kasich announced his surrender to Washington spending gimmicks on February 4, calling for the expansion of Medicaid eligibility as part of his biennial budget proposal.

Today, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he would be resigning from the papacy, effective at the end of this month. This is not unprecedented throughout history, but is certainly so in the modern era. In fact, it has not happened since 1294. Reactions seemed mostly to fall into two camps: shock or a complete lack of knowledge and or caring.
