Is it really your business?

As creatures of society, we’re natural nosy and intrusive busy bodies.  While there are laudable values in knowing what everyone else is doing (more able to help when help is truly needed), our native nature isn’t to good-hearted altruism.  We gossip about everyone and everything.  We have an opinion on everything and everyone.  Seldom is […]

I’ve occasionally said (tongue in cheek) that illegal immigrants should be catapulted back over the border. We’ll be kind . . . we’ll even give them a parachute. This article has an even better plan! I love it!   Time To Do That Which We Are Accused By Lindell Denham -April 5, 2021 Are you a ‘normal, […]

This article is by Micah Morrison, chief investigative reporter for Judicial Watch.  Judicial Watch at the Supreme Court: Fighting for Clean Elections Battles for clean […]

I signed up for Apple Care, our state’s health care exchange. Until  now I’ve paid for my health care out of pocket and that has worked wonderfully well for me. I’d like to continue to do that and have a high deductible policy that covered me in case of disaster but that’s not available to […]

Obama’s press secretary is on record saying Congress is afraid of the NRA.  Silliness.  It’s we’re the government and we’re here to help trying to sway public opinion and walk on our freedoms. It’s time we began recognizing and decrying this for what it is. It isn’t “control the masses”, though it could be. It […]

On Facebook this morning was a post about a woman with brain cancer who got caught up in the whole Obamacare mess, lost her coverage and in the mess that ensued, died from lack of treatment.  There have been a number of things on Facebook lately that flipped my switch, this was just one.  Thus […]

This morning the Tea Party’s Facebook feed has another “bad Obama” posting.  Various conservative groups run this sort of thing almost weekly.  The latest is a repeat of how “bad” Obama is because he vacations in Hawaii and he’s off to do it again soon and it costs $4 million and “ew, isn’t that horrible”.  […]

Today is Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday.  There are few people for whom I have as much respect, nor any I laud more frequently.  In celebration of his birthday, I’d like to extend this idea. What if, in the process of writing new legislation, a short treatise was required that referenced all the prior related legislation, […]

Since the Obamatax decision came down from the Supreme Court, it’s been fascinating to listen to/read different people’s take on what the decision means, both short term and long. Of all the bits I’ve heard and read, I have found the perceptions of Randy Barnett, Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory at the Georgetown University […]
