We’ve had 2 multi-day blackouts covering large areas of Michigan over the last few months due to power lines being downed during relatively mild storm activity.

Generic Drug Hazards: Told ya so!

No medicine, inadequate medicinal bioactivity, poisonous contaminants, you name it. China has wrecked havoc on our nation’s pharmaceutical supplies, and consumers have essentially no protection, and no recourse. “China doesn’t have anything like the consumer protection laws and product liability laws like the United States does,” said Rosemary Gibson, a health care expert at the Read More …

What if the El Paso Shooter’s “Manifesto” wasn’t Written by the Shooter?

Update: So allegedly, Crusius has admitted to not liking Latinos very much and did claim to target them in the Walmart shooting.

Moreover, the emissions generated in the manufacturing process for EV batteries must be added to our CO2 output, Read More …

Data Science Illustrates the Failure of Progressive Social Policies

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” So with that thought in mind, I present the “Shit Map” of San Francisco, California The “Shit Map” is designed to allow residents of the Bay Area to self-report sightings of human feces in places where it should not be (e.g. a sidewalk say). In addition to graphically Read More …

The EU Just Blew-Up the Internet

The Truth about “Recyclables”

In their article “Moment of Reckoning“, the Guardian reports what really happens to “recyclables” like plastic, paper, and even electronics. As China has gradually cut off the import of scrap materials from all over the world, that has left waste management officials with a dilemma: what to do with all of those materials? The answer?
