HOT5 Daily 4/18/2010

1. "Obama Using Scare Tactics For Financial “Reform”" Scare tactics are ok as long as Democrats are using them. If Republicans do so, then it's "fearmongering."

Representative Sample: Which is typical. In order for the government to seize more power they must first make us afraid of something. In this instance, Obama wants us to believe that we’ll be facing another financial meltdown without giving government more power over financial markets. That would be power on top of what they seized during the last financial meltdown. Which, of course, was caused by too much government interference in the markets in the first place.

2. "Does This look like an Economic Recovery to You?" No.

Representative Sample: The past nine months Obama has talked about little else other than health care. Meanwhile, millions of Americans remain out of work. If a Republican President were in the White House we'd read daily stories about the toll of human suffering wrought by the President's economic policy. 

3. "Evangelist Spurned for Supporting Evolution" Ostracized for recognizing reality. Includes video.

Representative Sample: “If the data is overwhelmingly in favor of evolution, to deny that reality will make us a cult — some odd group that is not really interacting with the world,” says Waltke

4. "Letter Of Marque: Reconsidering The Letter Of Marque–Utilizing Private Security Providers Against Piracy"A good idea that will probably never happen.

Representative Sample: This article examines how letters of marque could be revived to effectively empower the private sector to assist governments in dealing with modern piracy. It examines Somali piracy, the development and different uses of letters of marque and privateers, the current legal framework relating to piracy, Somalia’s decade-long experience with maritime security contractors, the use of maritime contractors outside of Somalia, and addresses concerns involving private maritime security.

5. "Infographic: World Robot Population" Rapid expansion.

Representative Sample: It's a graphic.
