The Grand Unification Theory of Healthcare

February 1st, 2013 - 9:47 am

In the spirit of the times – times which behoove thoughtful and observant people to simplify, consolidate, get back to the basics, and decide what’s really important and thus worth fighting for – I am de-complexifying my on-line activities.  To further this objective, I will be shutting down a website which has been a companion […]

January 25th, 2013 - 10:41 am

I interrupt this well-deserved (if I do say so myself) hiatus in my blogging career – during which I have remained busy doing other important stuff – to post this link to a debate in which I participated recently.

What Now?

November 14th, 2012 - 2:43 pm

In June, when the Supreme Court found that Obamacare is constitutional because the individual mandate is not really a mandate after all but a tax, I suggested that Chief Justice Roberts had come up with this unique formulation precisely because (being a conservative) he did not think that such a momentous social issue should be […]

President Obama and DrRich Agree on Abortion! (Part 2)

September 28th, 2012 - 4:44 pm

In Part 1 of this article, I explained my completely non-religious, entirely secular, totally logic-based objection to abortion. To summarize: It is axiomatic that a woman has a perfect right to choose what she does with her own body, right up until the point that her choice infringes on the equally inherent rights of another […]

President Obama and DrRich Agree on Abortion! (Part 1)

September 19th, 2012 - 12:36 pm

President Obama is widely regarded as the most pro-abortion President in history, and his public record supports this viewpoint. I, on the other hand, do not favor abortion in most circumstances. So it may surprise many readers to hear that President Obama and I actually agree on the most fundamental question raised by the abortion […]

September 12th, 2012 - 6:52 am

Very few of you will have read the final chapter of my new book (judging from the early sales figures, at least), and so most of you will not have read the John Galt speech I provided there for direct-pay practitioners. Long time readers of this blog will know that I am a strong proponent […]

February 25th, 2012 - 9:24 am

Now that President Obama’s healthcare reform has become the law of the land, it is time for us to prepare ourselves for the real fight. Namely, will individual Americans ultimately be restrained, by law or by subterfuge, from using their own resources to pay for their own medical care?  This notion is not as far-fetched […]

May God Save Us From the Public Health Experts

August 23rd, 2011 - 7:45 am

The “expert class” – the knowledgeable elites who are appointed by the Central Authority to establish the rules under which all of us in the great unwashed masses are to live our lives – will always (as a general proposition) tend to do great harm. Nowhere is this result more evident than in the policies […]

June 20th, 2011 - 8:30 am

Death panels? We don’t need no stinkin’ death panels. As President and sole member of Glorious Old Farts of America (GOFA), DrRich is acutely aware of the many ways our healthcare reformers – even prior to the birth throes of Obamacare – have subtly laid the groundwork for ushering us old timers to Our Great […]

From Medical Miracle to Abomination

February 1st, 2011 - 10:43 am

The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), an incredible feat of visionary medical science blended with cutting edge engineering, a device responsible for saving thousands of lives a year, has gone from being a prototypical American success story to a symbol of healthcare excess. Today the ICD is widely castigated by the press, the public, the insurers, […]
