Why not put Obamacare fully into effect and let it bankrupt Washington? Washington would default and that would be the end of the Federal Government. It would be cold turkey, of course, for the Democratic constituency, but then again who cares?
A fine article. Unfortunately, there are other problems with wireless technology that are even worse than the problems mentioned here. There is considerable evidence that wireless technology, which depends on microwave signals, is dangerous to human health. Of course, wireless technology is relatively new and it might take time for these problems to manifest themselves. But cell phones have been around now for about 20 years, and I fear that we are running out of time. My guess is that we are headed toward a massive public health crisis and an epidemic of cancer, ADHD, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, and a wide variety of mental and emotional problems. Throw away the cell phones and stick to land lines.
Jonathan Gruber came from MIT, one of America's elite universities. Unfortunately, America's current mess owes much to the fact that it is precisely our elite universities that have the worst departments of economics. Most of the movers and shakers in America, especially on the East Coast, went to one or more of our elite universities. Whatever one might say of these universities in general, what is taught in the economics departments is mostly crackpot Keynesian economics.

Obama is getting into deep water. It would not surprise me if some Timothy McVeigh-type out there took a shot at him and ignited a race war. Fasten your seat belts.

Bad Month for Obamacare

Instead of finding ways to see to it that more people are insured against the high cost of health care, why not simply get to the bottom of the problem and reduce the cost of health care itself? Much of the high cost of today's health care was caused by government intervention. Eliminate government intervention, the cost of health drops dramatically, and more and more people find that they do not need health insurance in the first place. To eliminate government intervention in health care, repeal all government licensing requirements for doctors and others in the health care profession. Then abolish the FDA, Medicare, and Medicaid. At that point we are back to free enterprise health care.
Even if Maynard's supporters are right and she died with dignity, where did she go after she died? Apparently that question never occurred to either Maynard or her supporters.
Cities seem to turn people into leftists. At the end of the day, there are just as many lunatics in Houston as there are in Boston and New York.

Africa: A Tragic Continent

Foreign to Africa or anywhere else is a bad idea because all foreign aid buys is socialism. Foreign aid goes to foreign governments. The more money those governments have, the more likely they are to expand and grow oppressive and bloated. Africa needs free enterprise and private property, but that is a decision that they must make themselves.

Why I Oppose Barack Obama

Barack Obama was America's first black president. Given the way he has conducted himself, he may be the last. Quite a contrast with Jackie Robinson. Robinson could be difficult, but there was no denying that he was an above-average baseball player.

Fascist Leftists in Houston

This incident shows that the main division in America is not between the red states and the blue states, but between the city and the country. Texas is supposed to be a red state, yet the city of Houston is loaded with leftists. Similarly, rural and suburban areas in blue states like New York and Massachusetts are loaded with opponents of big government. There seems to be something about cities that turns people into leftists. It would be interesting if someone could figure out the connection. As for myself, I have no idea what the connection is, only that such a connection exists.
