Why Health Insurance Costs So Much….
. Remy Munasifi hilariously explains the whole problem that people have with Obamacare’s “One Size Fits All” requirement for health insurance: I really wish someone could explain how INSURANCE works to all of these Democrats; it’s obvious they don’t understand the concept of insurance being a way to manage RISK, not a way to pay for maintenance costs…. .

It’s a tax! No, it’s a mandate!
. Just a quick Obamacare update: apparently yesterday the lawyer who is arguing for Obamacare was arguing that it is a tax; today he will be arguing that it ISN’T a tax: U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli used the phrase “tax penalty” multiple times to describe the individual mandate’s backstop. He portrayed the fee as a penalty by design, but one that functions as a | Read More »
Mr. President, If I Had a Son….
. “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said Friday. . . Oops. Silly me – that isn’t a picture of Trayvon Martin, that’s a picture of Matthew Bent. I daresay, Mr. President, that if you did have a son he might just as easily look like young Mr. Bent. According to his mother, Mr. Bent was a good kid – he | Read More »
Somebody call the Waaaaaah-mbulance….
. Poor little Melissa Horton – she took to the opinion pages of the Washington Post to let the world know that she borrowed money to pay for college, and now she doesn’t want to have to pay it back. Not only is she whining about that, but she has the audacity to insinuate that her parents are liars who are dumber than a sack | Read More »
Fisking Fluke’s Fables
Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed a very disturbing trend among law school students recently? I mean, it seems like every time some young advocate gets some face time in front of a camera, he/she is telling the most outrageous stories, and the press just eats it up. The latest case in point is Ms. Sandra Fluke (rhymes with “luck”), a 3rd-year | Read More »
Pay to Play (or, No, I Don’t Want to Subsidize Your Sex Life)
. Sandra Fluke’s parents must be so proud. On Monday, she went before a House Subcommittee to tell everyone that she has sex. Lots and lots of sex. Why, she has so much sex that it costs her $1000/year to pay for birth control. And gee willikers, she just can’t afford to pay for that, so she thinks that the American taxpayer should pick up | Read More »
Anne Boleyn and Obamacare
. I’ll admit that I have always been a bit of an “unconventional” thinker – lots of different things fascinate me. I read articles and books on things that interest me. Sometimes, I end up seeing weird connections – my thinking takes me way off of the beaten path (Paul hates taking me to mystery movies – I almost always figure out whodunnit about 5 | Read More »
Occupy Wall Street – The Democrats’ Electoral Albatross
Over the past couple of weeks there has been a sickening display of liberal politicians, news anchors, pundits, and D-List celebrities jumping in front of the camera and gushing about how wonderful this whole “Occupy” movement is, what brave people they are to be doing this, and what an inspiration these people are to “the rest of the country”. The same liberal politicians and pundits | Read More »
Occupy Wall Street – When the 99% becomes the 1%
When this whole “Occupy” movement started back on September 17th, the crew of kids down on Wall Street seemed like a harmless but well-meaning group of people. Yes, a lot of us poked gentle fun at them, but at the time, the original group was so small that nobody was really paying attention to what their core beliefs were. After a month in the trenches, | Read More »
The Brains behind “Airhead Autumn”
I got lambasted in comments on a post that I did a couple of weeks ago for daring to suggest that “Occupy Wall Street” was anything other than a spontaneous grass-roots gathering (OWS wasn’t even the subject of the post). But everything that I had read about OWS said that a group called Adbusters first put out the word way back in July of this | Read More »
