Too True To Be Funny

The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending YOUR tax money.   A billion is a difficult number to comprehend … but one advertising agency did a good job of Putting that figure into some perspective: A billion seconds ago it […]

USPS Blues

No wonder the post office is swimming in red ink.  It must be the most inefficient operation in America … probably not in the world, because all the other postal systems are run by governments, too!  They keep raising rates, lowering service and wondering why they continue to have even less success than the Titanic […]

Do No Harm

Remember the physicians’ primary guiding principle, “First do no harm?”  They should have paid more attention to that precept while attempting to fix the ailing Obamacare website.  The big day for the resuscitated patient has come and gone and the site is sicker than ever!  Oh, more people can get through before it crashes and […]

Giveth And Taketh

What the government giveth, the government can taketh away! I remember back in the 1970’s, during the last big environmental push, conserving electricity was the hot item. It wasn’t long before utilities were complaining that people were using too little power and the companies weren’t taking in as much money as they used to … […]

Treat or Trick

If there’s anything more bizarre than sitting around waiting for witches and goblins to strike on Halloween eve, it’s watching some of them buying a quarter of a million pepper spray projectiles, launchers and riot expansion kits in the name of Homeland Security.  It’s hearing others of them tell you to shop around in a […]

Selling Planned Disaster

The impossibly impassable signup site is the least of it! More than a million and a half Americans [and counting] losing their existing healthcare coverage is just an anticipated ‘ACA’ oversight. It’s what you find if you do happen to get through that makes the little hairs on the back of your neck stand straight […]

Whatever Works

Kathleen Sebelius hit the campaign trail yesterday, telling Congress that she was “too busy” to appear at the probe into her failure as point person on the Obamacare website project. Speaking to a small press conference in Phoenix she said, “The majority of people calling for me to resign I would say are people who […]

Balancing Disconnect

Several years ago, there was a famous film in which the hero was told, “What we have here is a failure to communicate.” That statement may never have been more insightful than it is today, when we look at the disconnect between people, politicians and programs relative to Obamacare. Apart from the debate about whether […]

Gotcha!

In an apparent attempt to recapture ‘those thrilling days of yesteryear’ a woman nearly fainted during an Obama speech in the Rose Garden yesterday. As she was about to go down he told her, “I gocha, I gotcha.”  Now, there are rumors to the effect that this was a stunt but I don’t believe them. […]

Great Expectations

There are a great many people in this country who somehow snoozed their way into the notion they’ll be getting free [or at least cheap] healthcare under Obamacare. Well, are these folks ever in for a rude awakening! With a glut of new people plugging into diminishing doctor ranks and substantially increased insurance premiums for […]
