Chicago’s Frederick Funston Elementary […]

Faced with the disastrous debut of healthcare.gov and the Affordable Care Act’s termination of millions of existing insurance policies, the Obama Administration has launched a two-pronged propaganda campaign to disguise the failure of Obamacare as a “success.” First, Kevin Drum, quoting from The Washington Post at MotherJones.com, tells us that Obamacare enrollment is “starting to […]

Angry Americans Protest Against Health Care Changes – the 1988 version

I remember one other time that Washington attempted to make a major change to health insurance. It was in 1988, at the depths of the Iran-Contra affair, when Ronald Regan was at his weakest.

A lesson we should learn from the Virginia election

Last night, Democrat Terry McAuliffe squeaked out a narrow victory in the Virginia governor’s race, beating Republican challenger Ken Cuccinelli by a mere 2 percentage points.

Sheldon Adelson: We Should Nuke Iran

American Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson is pretty sick and tired of President Obama’s bumbling foreign policy, especially his failed policy with Iran.

Toyota’s Clown Decision

Over the past few months, my wife and I started receiving inquiries from car dealers, asking if we wanted to sell our 2010 Toyota Rav4.  The first couple seemed to be ordinary junk mail, but as they kept coming, sometimes with bids sight-unseen (although they could check the VIN for records of any incidents), it […]
