“Insurance” for Pregnant Women in New York Now Available Throughout Pregnancy

According to USA Today, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a new law last week that will allow pregnant women to enroll in an insurance plan at any point in their pregnancy.  State lawmakers approved the legislation in June. So, what’s the big deal?  The big deal is that this legislation is forcing insurance carriers to accept something that is more than a risk in granting coverage to pregnant women at any time during their pregnancies.  Claims will be a sure thing from women who are already Read more […]

I’ve covered the collapse of many Obamacare co-ops, and how they failed because they were built on Liberal/Socialist ideas. Here’s some confirming evidence from the Daily Signal: “How Overregulation Led to the Collapse of Obamacare’s Largest Co-Op.” A new report examining the collapse of Health Republic of New York, Obamacare’s largest co-op, said its failure—which may lead to a $265-million loss of taxpayer dollars—can be attributed in part to heightened regulatory control by the state.

Gun Control and Other Results of Liberal Tribalism

Is gun control really a political belief or is it a phobia that needs to be overcome through “therapy”? What about other Liberal beliefs? I think this video will help you understand the common support for gun control better than anything else I have ever seen. Why do I like this video so much? Because it shows how much a political issue is actually psychological conditioning. This is a testimony about a person changing her mind… and that description seems almost literal! Her mind Read more […]

How Liberalism Ruins Economies: New York State

If You Need Proof Obama Is a Control Freak…

Barack Obama often seems disengaged, so why is he acting like a control freak over state Ebola quarantines. While I think the President’s agenda often reveal him to be a control freak, I don’t see it often in his personal behavior as chief executive. He seems to care more about golf than many issues that seem important to others. So what is going on that the President is actively opposing things that are not his business and should not be his concern? Consider this New York Times Read more […]

The public sector exists to spend; it doesn’t really care about spending money wisely. Everyone is acting as if the fact that this New York State woman was paid so much money is a great scandal because she did something so outrageous. But the real scandal should be that she was able to do something so outrageous. Reading this story, I have to ask myself: What private sector job would allow me to make such a large amount of money for such questionable productivity? According to the Journal Read more […]

No Gun Permit Unless You Give Up Your Facebook Password

A town is blatantly running a criminal operation in its gun permit procedure. Of course, being criminal, they did try to keep it quiet for awhile. But, now that it is revealed, they have insisted on continuing. The Second Amendment acknowledges the right to bear arms, which calls into question the whole concept of a government-issued gun permit.
