Health Care – yada –yada -yada

Moderate

Nobody has provided any data that supports that a single payer government owned and operated system will be substantially cheaper then what we have now. How does it do that? It will have administrative costs not dissimilar to existing health insurance only they will present as employees on salary. I ...

What About Free Market Health Care?

Moderate

Well, I am new to blogging and I think I must have broken some rule. What I intended as a relative narrow piece on the cost of national health care as patterned in the Congress degenerated into a name calling diatribe on the subject of third party payments. My blog ...

Mail Game III - Another Player

Moderate

What follows is taken from the Washington Post and I did not get permission to use it as it is posted on a generally available web page. "THE POST office may be the next too-big thing. If it continues on its present course, the U.S. Postal Service stands to post ...

The Myth of Free Health Care for All

Moderate

You know our discussions on health care might be a bit more rational if “merrill” did not put so much stock in the tooth fairy. He keeps posting the same multi-page thesis. It is hard to know where to start in addressing it. How about we start a discussion from ...

Health Care – Where lays truth?

Moderate

Just how did the health care debate become about haves and have nots? Could it be the way the proponents framed the question. 50 million do not have insurance. The have nots. 150-200 million of us do – the haves. It is fascinating when it comes to that 50 million ...

To market – to market …

Moderate

Forgotten Math

Moderate

I receive casualty reports from the DOD. Of late there have been many. IEDs in Afghanistan are taking their toll. I seemed to have missed the reporting in the media of these events. Back during the Bush days, each new casualty led to an increase in the large casualty clock. ...

The Mail Game (Reprise)

Moderate

I wrote a recent blog about “junk mail” and surprisingly I was taken to task with arguments that such mail makes the delivery of first class mail economically possible. This is my response. USPS management claims that “standard” (read direct or junk) mail makes lots of money, that the USPS ...

The Great Green Crushing Machine

Moderate

There was a lovely article in the LJW this morning about a lightweight push mower. For those of us past a certain age it brings back not so fond remembrances. In those days, the “pusher” was tubular steel of rugged construction- heavy! Pushing it around the small lawn we had ...

Irresponsibility Pays

Moderate

Do I have this right? Those of us who have always paid our credit card bills responsibly are now to pay for those who haven’t? I go back before credit cards as we now understand them. At no time in my 50 plus years using them have I paid interest ...
