Quack, Quack

November 16, 2009

You have been sold down the river. So have we all. We need to differentiate between healthcare reform and tinkering with health insurance. Yes, there is a difference. The entire burlesque these past few months has revolved around the tinkering. A handful of congressmen offered HR 676, Medicare-For-All. That represents reform. All of the rest […]

One Possible Scenario

October 5, 2009

This is not a prediction. It is only what I see as an optimistic scenario. What’s going to happen with healthcare reform in Congress? Your guess is as good as mine. Because there is no leadership, no one knows what the outcome will be. We do know a few things, however. Since it was given […]

Stupid And Useless

September 2, 2009

I finally received a response from Bart Gordon, my Congressman. He totally ignored my request for a debate. Now I know why. I had challenged him before the August recess. As September has arrived, that means it took him a month to respond. It is obvious from his email that he would have had to […]

Drip, Redux

August 13, 2009

A few of us are unfortunate enough to be able to remember the decade of the 1950s. I’ll refrain from naming names. But, I will if I have to. There was a major scare back in that strange, misbegotten decade. The “Bomb,” of course. No. Even scarier. The Communists had an even more devious plot […]

At The Head Of The Table

August 6, 2009

Who’s in charge? Here is an article from the New York Times illuminating the real role that al-PhARMA is playing and how the administration is prostituting itself, unnecessarily.
