A myth on job creation

It is taken as gospel among politicians of both parties that small business is the engine of job creation. “We’re starting with small businesses because that’s where most of the new jobs do,” President Obama said earlier this year. “Small businesses are the job generator of America,” echoed Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain. Washington Post via Tampa Tribune

NASA incompetent — or just lying to us?

This is the latest plan NASA is considering to get us to infinity and beyond. It would break the shuttle into pieces. It would take the engines off the orbiter, put them on the bottom of the fuel tank, and throw the rest of the orbiter away. Then it would put the astronauts in a capsule on top of the fuel tank. It’s sort of like putting Mr. Potato Head’s nose where his hat used to be, and switching his arms and ears around. Orlando Sentinel
