Value for your tax dollars 


President Barack Obama’s Department of Labor launched a new Smartphone app last week that tells outdoor workers when it’s hot and humid outside.

The DOL’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s new “Heat Safety Tool,” designed for outdoor workers who are already outside, tells workers the temperature and humidity level of where they’re at. From that data, the app calculates the “heat index” and “risk level” for workers in the given location....

The “Heat Safety Tool” app provides a color-coded “risk level” scale, ranging from yellow or “lower” risk to red or “very high to extreme” risk. When the risk-level is “lower” the app recommends workers “drink plenty of water, even if you’re not thirsty.” When it’s “very high to extreme,” the app says workers should “establish a water drinking schedule” of about four cups per hour and “set up cool, shaded rest areas.”

And yet, we have apparently cut federal spending to the bone and now the only alternative is to raise taxes.

I admit, I'm easily confused.

You would think that a college graduate (Princeton, no less!) and a professional writer would know better than to end a sentence with a preposition. (...humidity level of where they're at.) Liberals have already been dumbed-down but stop infecting us conservatives.

I'm not going out on a limb or committing apostasy when I say that it is not entirely obvious that conservatives write and speak better, or worse, than liberals.

Of course, few liberals would agree with me.
