America’s partisan debate about healthcare reform is like a couple who lives together and has a recurring argument about what to do with a crazy uncle who lives with them. Crazy Uncle has a habit of robbing — and sometimes harming — people in the couple’s neighborhood. One of the partners suggests addressing the problem by […]

Do you remember back in 2009 when Party of No Brains Governor Sarah Palin prohesized that the Party of No Guts’ attempt to reform the American healthcare system would result in the formation of death panels that would determine who lives and dies? Well — dare I say this — she was right … … Except the death […]

Some of you may be offended by me equating the Republican takeover of Congress with political instability—a reference that’s normally reserved for developing nations. But it’s hard to resist posting about the volatile chemistry between Party of No Brains’ new control of Capitol Hill and President Obama, the leader of the Party of No Guts. Just […]

I still don’t get why we keep focusing on technology as Obamacare’s main problem, when technology problems are more likely the outgrowth of more fundamental issues. An early lesson I learned as a management consultant is that systems modeled after a crap strategy and equally bad business practices mean you will have chaos on […]

I see two things accomplished by the recent partisan-driven budget standoff between Congress and the White House. In a case of twin-irony, the Party of No Guts displayed a rare streak of courage while the Party of No Brains won something that they’ve always claimed to be viscerally against – more government regulations! (Laughing) C’mon, what […]

Talk show host, blogger and online comrade Tanya Free raised a question yesterday that will likely spark a passionate debate: “What role, if any in your opinion, has race played in the government shutdown? Is it about ObamaCare or Obama?” My short answer is “Both,” and the evidence I’ll present in this post is one […]

Why would the South Carolina House pass legislation that makes the implementation of Obamacare a criminal act, and why would South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley support the bill? As Rep. James Clyburn points out, South Carolina has one of the most jacked-up metrics in the nation for health outcomes, and almost 20 percent of the […]

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. the convergence of the federal government shutdown and desperate public relations maneuvering by the Party of No Brains has made Sarah Palin’s anti-Affordable Care Act fantasy warning come true – WE NOW HAVE DEATH PANELS! BUT – the panel did not come from Obamacare; it came from the […]

I’ll first tell you what I like about Obamacare. It’s a start, I suppose… It will cover additional uninsured people. It makes an effort to reduce the deficit by forcing down health care costs. On the last point, I’m not certain if that vector is sustainable… There are two things at battle in my […]
