Sometimes I wish I was clueless.  Indifferent.  Uninformed.  Unfortunately, for me, I am none of these things.  And my poor husband has been subjected to my ranting all week about what’s been happening in Congress.  He is a saint. All week, I’ve watched Senators posturing, sermonizing, feigning concern for the American people and grandstanding. I […]

January 20, 2017 Won’t Come Soon Enough

As happy I will be to watch Donald J. Trump be sworn in as our 45th President, that happiness will be overshadowed by the absolute ecstasy I will feel knowing that Obama and his crew are out of our White House.  Good riddance and don’t let the door hit you on your way out. This […]

Coffeecare: The Affordable Coffee Act

Obamacare Made Simple

Obamacare — To insure the uninsured, we first make the insured uninsured and then make them pay more to be insured again so the original uninsured can be insured for free.  (Thanks, Tom, for this great explanation!)    


After receiving two notices this past summer from my insurance company letting me know “changes” were coming, I didn’t quite hold my breath but wasn’t surprised when I finally received the “changes” that President Obama promised over and over and over ad nauseum wouldn’t happen. My husband (now retired) was a sole practitioner.  I worked […]

Promises, Promises

Remember all those lofty promises that then President wannabe Barack Obama made on the campaign trail?  Most people will remember the hope-y change-y thing he promised us.  But how many remember the specific promises he made – none of which he’s kept.  The following dialogue was had between Bernie Goldberg and Bill O’Reilly during a […]

If there was anyone who actually believed President Obama when he said he wouldn’t raise taxes on families making less than $250,000, the Supreme Court has set the record straight. Whether you agree or not with the Supreme Court’s holding, failure to buy insurance under the Obamacare mandate will result in a tax, not a […]

Save the Patient? OR Save the Planet?

I’m not sure if the article I read is more a reflection on government-run health care or the screwiness of proponents of “green” anything;  it’s probably a little bit of both.  I think it’s worth mentioning and gives us a glimpse into the future. Being thousands of pages long and with the Supreme Court now […]


One day in grammar school, the nun told us that we would have a test the following day.  Anyone who couldn’t recite a particular spelling rule had to write it 50 times.  Despite having studied all the spelling rules the night before, the next day I flubbed mine.  So, I went home and wrote the […]

What We Can Expect

The Supreme Court has started hearing oral arguments this week on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. Of course I’m hoping that the whole thing will be thrown out on constitutional grounds, particularly because, although Constitutional Law was not my favorite course in law school,  I still can’t figure out how the federal government can force us […]
