Health Insurance Is No Longer Legal in America

On the last day of 2014, my health insurance company informed me that, due to the Affordable Care Act (sic), my health insurance policy has been discontinued; and I have been assigned to a new policy, not as good as the old one, with a premium that is 80% higher. My insurance agent tells me …

Obama Bangs the Keys Harder

A few years ago, I saw a three-year-old child open a book of sheet music, place it on her toy piano, and begin banging on the keys. I immediately thought, “Oh, that’s Obama.” Of course, Obama is not really like that innocent, healthy, normal three-year-old. Obama is the equivalent of someone who forces concert pianists …

If You Like Your Promise

I have written numerous posts on the evil of Obamacare. This post distills the essence. If you like your promise, you can keep your promise … unless your promises contradict each other.

The Limitless Unreason of the Left

Yesterday, speaking on a university campus, Obama said this: You know, the naysayers said that Social Security would lead to socialism. [Laughter.] The audience laughed with Obama. Of course, if they were to laugh at all, they should have laughed at him. Of course Social Security has been leading to more and more socialism. Look …

Health Care or the Welfare State

Yesterday, in an interview with Fox News, Obama said this: [T]here are a lot more people who are concerned about the fact that they may be losing their house or going bankrupt because of health care.
