I've never been the biggest fan of Infowars. I'm glad it's there, but it wasn't my thing. When I got asked to be a guest on it, I expected hostility. I have to say, the interviewer, David Knight, was better than any I've had on CNN, Fox, or any other mainstream media. Rather than recap […]
By Randazza The "March for Science" seemed like a great idea. Science is awesome. Making decisions based on evidence and the scientific method is superior to making decisions based on superstition and emotion. So yay science. I'm certain (or at least willing to believe) that the organizers were truly motivated by a desire for evidence-based […]

That law is believed to say that if a church endorses or campaigns for political candidates, it loses its tax exempt status. The result has been a wave of […]
Just think about that.
There are good and bad immigrants. Appleton Morgan explained this in Popular Science (vol 38). Morgan concluded that some immigrants just do not belong in America, no matter how hard we try and make them fit. These immigrants are prone to violence. They do not share our culture. They do not share our language. They […]
