Walmart is the poster child of Obamacare’s perverse consequences. Early in October, the giant retailer announced it was dropping health benefits for workers who put in fewer than 30 hours per week—the definition of part-time employment, according to Obamacare. Walmart’s decision will affect about 26,000 American workers.
By now, the insulting comments by Obamacare advisor and Affordable Care Act designer, Jonathan Gruber, are well known. If you need a primer, read these two articles, or Google it; there’s no shortage of data.
My friend Saurabh Jha, a radiologist of powerful intelligence and wit, thinks […]
There’s stupid. There’s really stupid. There’s really, really stupid.
Then there’s Democrat stupid.
A prime example is a Friday Wall Street Journal article titled “This Democrat Is Giving Up on ObamaCare.” It’s penned by one Burke Beu, someone I describe as “ethnically Democrat,” as he says “I […]
Little Eli Waller will never grow up to be president. The four-year-old New Jersey boy will never grow up to be anything because enterovirus D68 took his life — quite possibly because a boy who did grow up to be president, but not really a man, invited […]
Recent analysis conducted by Bloomberg Government concluded the federal government has spent $2.1B (yes, billion with a b) on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) enrollment system. Peter Gosselin, a senior health-care analyst at Bloomberg and lead author of study stated “the way […]
One major criticism of U.S. health care is that we spend more money on health care than any other country. If health spending consumes resources that are needed elsewhere, this could be a problem. The U.S. now spends about 17 percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) […]
Sometime during the last week the Public Health Agency of Canada changed its website’s content regarding Ebola transmission. Last week I published a preliminary essay on the Airborne Transmission of Ebola, and more recently comprehensive essays, all citing the Canadian PHA’s section entitled […]
The American public has been misinformed regarding human-to-human transmission of Ebola. Assurances that Ebola can be transmitted only through direct contact with the body or body fluids of victims needs to be seriously scrutinized in the wake of the current West African outbreak. The Canadian Health Dept. […]
I don’t like to write about health. But once in a while it is necessary. Most old folks know that by the time you reach 35 years of old, you start […]
The left consistently blames guns for school shootings, while mostly ignoring the big elephant in the room: mental illness. Up until the 1960s, the severely mentally ill were locked up in psychiatric hospitals, for their own good and for the protection of society. The ACLU and the […]
The Veterans Administration (VA) has been a disaster since just about its inception. Because it is government-only monopoly single-payer health care. Championed by the exact same people dying to impose it on all the rest of us.
Then-Community Organizer Barack Obama:
“I happen to be […]
How did Obama end up in this morass? Health-care reform long has been a central focus of modern American liberalism. The high priest of American socialism who offered the substance for these policies was John Rawls, an American political philosopher. Obama absorbed his views at Harvard Law […]
How often have you heard someone say “that’s my right!” Or, “health care, food, shelter, education, is my right.” Or, “I can say anything I want, it’s my right.” But how many of you have actually thought through exactly what is a right?
My definition is this. A right is any action that you take […]
“First do no harm.”

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to […]
The other day I came across an article on CNN entitled, “Why are Some Democrats Running Away from Obamacare?,” a truly comical piece which would be even funnier were it not mere cheerleading disguised as analysis. And cheerleading is desperately needed as Democrats approach the midterm elections. […]
The word sacrifice when used by a liberal is always applied as an expectation for others, while conservatives use it individually.
The liberals/progressives/Democrats make every effort to enact laws to take more and more tax money from successful Americans to redistribute to their perpetually needy constituents. The […]
The West Wing was for several years a fabulous television show – about a Democrat White House. Yes, I know, I’m a conservative and I wasn’t supposed to like it. But great writing is great writing, and Aaron Sorkin can seriously write. (He doesn’t bat 1.000, but […]
The Democrats, liberals and progressives in America have been assigned a distinctively political obligation to keep in step and in sync with their chosen one, Barack Hussein Obama. Why? Not to help America as a whole but to maintain the illusion of Obama’s success. They have been […]
Ever since the 2009 advent of the Tea Party, Democrats on Capitol Hill and the liberal media have been obsessed with its destruction. Of course such a response is entirely understandable, since a cohesive and effective alliance of grassroots conservatives working to uphold the Constitution and maintain […]
