She Walks Because She Can’t Figure Out How To Start The Car

I’m pretty sure that when the history of health care reform in America is written, Megan McArdle will get a footnote as the last person in the country to understand how any of it actually works. The debate over the “rationing” of healthcare has come down to two sides: conservatives…

My Ass Does Not Go Beep Beep When You Touch It

Today is my birthday. And as such, I reserve the birthday right to make bold pronouncements about my life. Today, as I turn 27 years old, I say unto the world that I am not a motherfucking car. Robert Tracinski, writing at Real Clear Politics, describes how terrible the Democratic…

Free As A Bird…A Sick, Wheezing, Uninsured Bird

Thomas Sowell writes, in the clarion voice for personal liberty we’ve all come to know and use to justify wearing body armor over our kidneys, that universal health insurance is the enemy of freedom. This is mainly because we live in a healthcare system rife with freedom and opportunity and…

Megan McArdle Is A Kind Of Dumb There Are No Words For

Megan McArdle has been on a rather legendary tear of stupidity as of late, but in typical McArdle fashion, she’s wrong in ways that require a 10:1 energy-to-stupid ratio to correct. She’s said incredibly stupid things about healthcare, national health insurance and now about obesity. If I was powered by…

Have You Drawn The Wrong Conclusion Today?

The Wall Street Journal, in its eternal attempts to prove to the rest of us that the only proper way to go through life is rich and dumb, has a piece up today which makes the contention that health insurance makes us fat. Americans who have health insurance, either private…

People do what they do because they want to do it

Last night, a friend and I were talking about my recent trip to Vegas and the practice of gambling. I was (obviously) on the pro side, and he was, to my surprise, against it. I say I was surprised because he’s an adrenaline junkie, and so I thought he’d love…

SEIU Got Served

I’ve been trying to make sense of exactly why Wal-Mart is endorsing employer mandated health care and, more importantly, why the SEIU is playing along. Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest private employer, joined hands with a major labor union Tuesday to endorse the idea of requiring large companies to provide health…

Your Point…It Fails! So Very, Very Hard!

The Wall Street Journal is railing against universal health insurance because it has the potential to result in arbitrary cutoffs of medical care due to cost concerns. Again, mind you, this is supposed to be the reason we don’t want a public system of health insurance. This is the major…

The Secret To Health: Stop Being Sick

Sonny Bunch rather elegantly (if unintentionally) demonstrates the case for universal health care: But certain things about the health care debate drive me absolutely nuts, like the self-entitlement you encounter day in and day out when you pay attention to the issue. Take this guy, for example. Allow me to…

John McCain hates my family and wants us to starve

And no, I’m not actually exaggerating*. Frankly, I don’t know how I missed this story, because apparently it’s been around awhile. John McCain wants to tax your employer-provided health care benefits. He wants to replace those benefits with an insufficient tax credit–$2500 for individuals and $5000 for families (the average…
