The health care “debate” is made most irritating by the obvious things ignored. As we have grown accustomed to hearing ad nauseam, health care represents 17% of our economy. I have no idea if that number is accurate. Perhaps one day I will look into it. Whatever the number, we know it is big. Yet [...]
“Preacher was talking, there’s a sermon he gave
He said every man’s conscience is vile and depraved
You cannot depend on it to be your guide
When it’s you who must keep it satisfied.”
(Bob Dylan—The Man in the Long Black Coat)
I like Joan Osborne’s cover of this Bob Dylan song. What has me thinking of “vileness” and “depravity” [...]
Part 1 of my Ron Paul essay received more attention than I expected. His supporters are intense, to say the least.
As stated in that article, there are many things about Paul to like. But his monetary policies and his political rigidity are not among them. I do not dismiss the importance of sound monetary policies. [...]

The Democrat Party now understands just how bad they blew it in 2009. This is good for the [...]

…But in case there was any doubt, Obama’s reaction to [...]
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 23-year-old Muslim Nigerian “charged” with the failed attempt on the Amsterdam-to-Detroit flight now has a public defender. So we will be hearing a lot about “allegedly this and that” for the next few years. He will be tried in criminal court instead of a military tribunal [...]
Special Report’s lead story Wednesday evening was the remarkable saga that is now called “Gitmo.” my nominee for the first annual “Non-Sequitur Policy of the Year” award (NSPY, pronounced “nespy”, rhyming with ESPN’s ESPY award). Not a very catchy title, perhaps, but appropriately utilitarian in form and function. This first annual [...]
