Does anyone remember M.U.S.C.L.E.S., the popular pink collectible figures from the 80s? I do--especially now that I've dug up the old box where they've been stored for the past 20 years. Check 'em out.



These were totally fun to trade with classmates, trying to collect all 236 of them.

I wonder if they're worth anything today...hmm.

Utah House of Representatives: Global Warming is a Fraud

Was it only a matter of time? The Utah state legislature is close to becoming the first state to officially repudiate the myth of manmade climate change. Ah, to live in a state with marginally more common sense than can be typically found. From the story:

 The Utah House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution that called for the Environmental Protection Agency to immediately halt its carbon dioxide reduction policies and programs and withdraw its Endangerment Finding and related regulations until a full and independent investigation of climate data and global warming science can be substantiated.

The resolution now goes to the Utah Senate. The full resolution is here at the Freemen Institute.


With Democrats in control, lobbying expenditures rise 5%

I don't this is the kind of change people were hoping for...

Last year saw a more than 5 percent increase in lobbying expenditures as compared to 2008, said a new report released Friday by the Center for Responsive Politics, a campaign finance watchdog.

More than $3.47 billion was spent on lobbying in 2009, about $170 million more than in 2008, according to the watchdog%u2019s analysis.

Romney edges Palin in early, early, early poll

It's way early, but still good news for Mitt Romney, should he choose to puruse his presidential ambitions again in 2012. This is particulary significant in the face of Sarah Palin's front-and-center status during her whirlwind book tour and the national Tea Party convention. Can 2012 get here soon enough?
