June 28th, 2012 - 11:07 am

Many readers (and you know who you are) think I am a complete dunderhead when it comes to interpreting Progressives and their healthcare system. But the real problem is that I am not a dunderhead, and as disturbing as it is even to myself, I have been right more times than not when it comes […]

DrRich Deconstructs Progressivism

November 6th, 2010 - 1:03 pm

It is easy to be puzzled by Progressives. They tend to be so kind, compassionate and well-meaning, and they try so assiduously to make everything turn out so well for everyone – and yet their works turn out to be so destructive. What’s up with that?  And why do Progressives so revere Diversity? And why […]

Healthcare Reform For The Unwashed Masses

May 18th, 2010 - 9:20 pm

Sure, nobody’s read the bill, and even if they had, what Nancy said is true: To find out what’s in the bill, they first had to pass it (so the bureaucrats could translate it into the hundreds of thousands of regulations that would finally determine its meaning).
