No, Senator Cruz, Donald Trump Does NOT Support Single Payer Health Care…

The Last Refuge

trump rally fans(Via Steven Tucker)  I have been studying health care policy for 20 years now. I am also a multi-state licensed health insurance broker who continues to operate in an increasingly less competitive and more bureaucratically controlled system on both the federal and state level. During the last 20 years I have seen a lot of changes in the U.S. health care system. Some of them good (HIPAA) and some bad (Reagan’s EMTALA) the PPACA a.k.a. “Obamacare” etc.

During the last two decades I have read everything I could get my hands on pertaining to health care policy. I also spent the longest two weeks of my entire life reading the PPACA – Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act – shortly after it was passed into law on March 23, 2010. I have also appeared on television, radio and written expert commentary on health care policy on this…

I Can’t Believe the Amount of Outrage There has Been Over Commercials

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

It seems like everyone is offended by all the Super Bowl commercials this year. First of all… get over yourselves. Secondly, how did you make it through the game with so much butt hurt?

Here’s the latest one coming under fire, and I actually have something to say about it.

Since the folks who read this blog aren’t members of the perpetually offended, you probably didn’t see what was so damn offensive about this ad. So I’ll tell you. 9/11.

Apparently, everyone is upset because Colonial Williamsburg used 9/11 to sell something. Oh the horror.

UNIONLet’s see. Colonial Williamsburg is in place to teach about a significant portion of our history. It does the job well, even if there is a bunch of high end modern shops at the end of the road. If you’ve never been to Williamsburg, it is full of historic buildings and people in costume playing…

12 trigger events that could unleash economic collapse in the U.S

sentinelblog

Source: Natural News, by Ethan A. Huff

As practically the entire world seems to be nearing the end of its run financially, many people are beginning to wonder how much longer America has before our own teetering house of cards finally falls. Nobody can say for sure how it will all play out, of course, but there are a number of potential scenarios that could act as trigger events to bring about a cataclysmic economic collapse here in the United States, in the very near future.

According to Jim Willie from GoldenJackass.com, the following imminent events could predicate a complete financial breakdown, unlike anything ever before seen in America:

1) Plummeting oil prices. As I’m writing this, oil prices have already dipped below $30 a barrel, which Willie suggests is a major indicator of impending financial doom.

2) Bank failures due to oil and gas hedge…

The Pam Geller Story Illustrates EVERYTHING That Is Wrong With The Politically Correct Agenda

The Oil in Your Lamp

I cannot remember the last story I saw in the news that so perfectly and completely illustrates the problems created by the politically correct agenda as that of the Pam Geller/Muhammad cartoon contest/Texas shooting story.  I just wonder how many Americans can see everything this story holds and, of those who can still see and understand it, how many have bothered to take enough time to reflect on it so that they can see it all?  It was this question that prompted this post: not whether or not people will understand, but do they even care anymore?  I do not wish to presume anything about you, my dear reader.  So, if you will allow me, I will address as much of this story as I can as though I am talking to myself.  Please read this post in that light: as a conversation between me and the man in my…

7 reasons why we should be skeptical about the MSM

Fellowship of the Minds

3 monkeys

Mark Twain once said, “If you don’t read a newspaper every day, you are uninformed. If you do, you are misinformed.”

Things haven’t changed today. Here are 7 reasons why:

1. Democrats outnumber Republicans by 4-to-1 among journalists, according to research by Indiana University journalism professors Lars Willnat and David Weaver. Washington, D.C. correspondents, the ones who dominate national political coverage, are even more Democrat partisan. According to Tim Groseclose, author of Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind, over 90% of D.C. journalists vote Democratic, with an even higher number giving to Democrats or liberal-leaning political action committees.

2. Michael Deaverwas White House deputy chief of staff in the Reagan Administration (1981-1985). Deaver worked primarily on media management forming how the public perceived Reagan, sometimes by engineering press events so that the White House set the TV networks’ agenda for covering the president. This…
