The Supremes; ruling on health care was incomplete. Since we now know government can force us to do anything whether we like it or not, why didn’t Roberts et al. make it mandatory certain young people study medicine whether they want to or not? That would create another bureaucracy – but isn’t that what D.C. does best? Since scores of docs have already said they will leave medicine rather than have their incomes capped and their decisions second-guessed, there’s going to be a severe shortage of doctors unless new ones are added, and fast. And unless that happens, about the only way someone will be able to see a doctor w ... continue reading »
Sad to say about your gallant effort so far toward attempting to bring the Obama eligibility issue to a just and proper conclusion, but today’s vote by Chief Justice Roberts (pronounced “Deceiver Extraordinaire”) makes all Obama ballot challenges dead or moot issues – you need not go any further. It’s finished – save your time and effort with this court.
The nation’s best hope is State Nullification of unconstitutional federal overreach, but our citizens are too drunk with the thought of a strong central government––and the hell with what our Founding Fathers established for us.

Despite the Supreme Court’s decision on the individual mandate to buy health insurance, the Affordable Care Act remains flawed because it will leave at least 26 million people uninsured and does nothing to reduce health-care costs. We need publicly funded universal health care – we need single-payer Medicare-for-all.
Instead of mandating everyone purchase insurance from a for-profit company, we should expand and improve what we already know works: Medicare, whose administrative costs are only 3 percent. With Medicare-for-all, we would save $400 billion annually.
Medicare is loved, cost-effective and should be improved ... continue reading »
I read your column “Contemptuous government.” If you think Willard Mitt Romney is going to repeal Obamacare, one side of your brain is manufacturing BS and the other side is buying it. You’re an eternal optimist? Really? This nightmare is REAL.
The republic is dead, and you are in denial. The financial collapse is days or maybe weeks away. Can’t you see that, or do you have the Bias Factor Disorder, too, like so many talk-show hosts? “Oh, this is America, and it can’t happen here.” We are headed to a one-world governm ... continue reading »
Not since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision has the U.S. Supreme Court so miserably and utterly failed in its duty to uphold the Constitution and protect the rights of individuals. Whereas Roe was the death knell for over 50 million pre-born people, the court’s decision to let stand Obamacare is the death knell for the American health-care system and, ultimately, life as we know it in this country.
Eventually private insurance companies will go bankrupt by being forced to accept those who, for instance, have just been diagnosed with cancer. That in turn will lead to a single-payer (government) program, further eroding our freedom ... continue reading »
I see Rush and other political and media pundits are all over Romney for what they call his “lukewarm” response to Obama’s amnesty for some Hispanic youths. So if I’ve got this right, it would make sense for Romney to obviously alienate, at this particular time, Hispanics all over the country when they are such a large voting bloc. Duh!
