If You Haven’t Seen ‘Expelled…’

If you missed it when it came out in 2008, I encourage you to see Expelled: The Movie. Because we’re very far from being done with “scientific” inquisitions.

Here’s my review, which I wrote at the time:

This film has a lot to say about how iffy science gets turned into “settled science” that you question at your peril. And leftists want the government to run the inquisition. Don’t forget–the 2016 Democrat platform, the platform Hillary Clinton ran on, called for the U.S. attorney general to “investigate” Climate Change denial… as a crime. Her administration would be doing that right now, if she hadn’t lost the election.

They didn’t need the government to launch and sustain the inquisition over Darwinism denial–most of whose victims are themselves credentialed scientists. Now and then they got the courts involved: nothing like an ACLU lawsuit to scare a local school board out of allowing its science teachers to discuss Intelligent Design.

Science is a very valuable tool, when statists and self-anointed know-it-alls aren’t debauching it.

P.S.–Ben Stein’s interview of atheist motormouth Richard Dawkins is worth the price of admission. I’m sure you can find this movie somewhere on the Internet, either on YouTube or amazon.com.


China Bans… Winnie the Pooh?

Ain’t communism grand? No wonder all our noozies and collidge prefessers want that kind of one-party state in our country.

Chinese censors have banned Winnie the Pooh (http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-china-blog-40627855). No, this is not a satire. They really have.

Why? To stop bloggers from using pop culture icons, like Pooh, to represent China’s leaders. Because it’s, like, against the law to ridicule China’s leaders.

We would never do that here. We like Winnie the Pooh too much to make him represent Chuck Schumer.

Please don’t forget that it was in the Democrat platform last year to have the Attorney General “investigate Climate Change Denial.” Quick quiz: try to name one Democrat who does not admire the Chinese government’s way of doing things.


The Official Wacko Party Platform

Beware the liberals bearing gifts

In addition to nominating for president a notoriously corrupt and wicked individual, the Democrat Party has also adopted a most extraordinary platform. It is extraordinary for its sheer outlandish foolishness. I don’t know how to link to the PDF document itself, but here is one of several sites that contain such a link ( http://reason.com/blog/2016/07/26/democratic-platform-2016-science-plankx ). So you don’t have to take my word for any of this: you can easily read it yourself–if you’ve got the stomach for it.

Among many inanities the platform lays out a national economic policy to be adopted by Careless Clinton if she gets elected. Even this section is too turgid to quote in its entirety; but here are some of the things they say they want to do.

–“Rein in the corporations” (except for those that make sizeable donations to the Clinton Foundation)

–Raise “the workers'” wages by order of the federal government, which sounds like something usually done only in countries that had names like Such-and-Such-Peoples Democratic Republic, etc.

–Force “the corporations” to share profits with their employees (the document always says “workers,” but I can only type that out so often before it makes me gag)

–Impose all kinds of environmental restrictions on business

–Compel businesses to provide expanded benefits to all employees

And then, having done all that–wait for it!–they propose… “to create well-paying jobs” all around the country.

Uh, who is going to offer these good jobs, once they’ve finished gutting business and making it virtually impossible to turn a profit?

I have been in business, and here is one thing that everyone ought to understand: if you don’t make a profit, you don’t have a business. As a rule of thumb, in order to keep any kind of business healthy, you have to be able to sell a good or a service for twice what you paid for it. Otherwise, it’s belly-up.

Obviously career politicians who have never owned a business, or ever worked for one, don’t know this. Or simply don’t care.

What do you get when you combine dishonesty, vast corruption, hypocrisy, empty promises, and just plain wacko ideology?

I hope we don’t find out.
