How Junk Food Can End Obesity

This article is a long, but very interesting – and needed – perspective, challenging current foodie dogma:

“If the most-influential voices in our food culture today get their way, we will achieve a genuine food revolution. Too bad it would be one tailored to the dubious health fantasies of a small, elite minority.

Through its growing sway over health-conscious consumers and policy makers, the wholesome-food movement is impeding the progress of the one segment of the food world that is actually positioned to take effective, near-term steps to reverse the obesity trend: the processed-food industry.

These roundly demonized companies could do far more for the public’s health in five years than the wholesome-food movement is likely to accomplish in the next 50. But will the wholesome-food advocates let them?”

Scalia: ‘High-Handed’ Kennedy Has Declared Us ‘Enemies of the Human Race’

Justice Scalia’s dissent makes for some very somber reading.

In the majority’s judgment, any resistance to its holding is beyond the pale of reasoned disagreement. To question its high-handed invalidation of a presumptively valid statute is to act (the majority is sure) with the purpose to “disparage,” “injure,” “degrade,” “demean,” and “humiliate” our fellow human beings, our fellow citizens, who are homosexual. All that, simply for supporting an Act that did no more than codify an aspect of marriage that had been unquestioned in our society for most of its existence— indeed, had been unquestioned in virtually all societies for virtually all of human history. It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race.

Obama’s Radical Climate Agenda

This is discouraging.

“The president announced that, on behalf of ‘all of humankind,’ he is in effect directing the EPA to take over the American economy.”

Junk Science Week: Epic climate model failure

The data in this article should make people strongly question the urgency and necessity of  President Obama’s planned executive orders aimed at cutting carbon emissions, which he announced yesterday.

Junk Science Week: Ehrlich bombs again

Why do people keep listening to this prophet of doom when so much of what he has predicted has turned out to be utter rubbish?

“In the more than four decades since The Population Bomb was published, the number of people inhabiting the Earth has more than doubled, but the death and poverty rates have dropped, and life expectancy has increased.”

Let Em Speak

I love the First Amendment! And so does Andrew Klavan:

“Let people talk — let them talk without fear. They’re interesting. They’re, well, diverse. They say things we disagree with. They say things they shouldn’t. They use bad words. They make mistakes. It doesn’t kill us. It doesn’t even hurt us, if we have our heads on straight. We can just chalk it up to — oh, I don’t know — being alive with other people.”
