A mental health problem, not a gun problem

Last Friday's tragic school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas should tell us, once again, that we have a serious mental health problem in this country, instead the political left will make it about guns. Not the usual suspects The 17-year-old Texas shooter (Hoystory does not name mass murderers.) killed 10 and wounded […]

VA Hospitals aren't Disneyland

Today, Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald uttered what may be the dumbest words said by someone in the federal government until the next time Vice President Joe Biden steps in front of a camera. At a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, McDonald said: "When you got to Disney, do they measure the number […]

The War on Drugs has Failed

Let's face it: The War on Drugs has Failed. For decades the government has spent untold billions or trillions of dollars on law enforcement and mass incarceration of people who are only destroying their own lives. Don't get me wrong. I don't think people should be using PCP, cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy or any other currently […]

Major Garrett's last question of the Obama presidency

CBS News' Major Garrett had a question for President Obama at this morning's news conference. It's his last question of the Obama pressidency. For one brief moment, President Obama knew what it was like to be treated like a Republican politician...and he didn't like it. *Update* And the palace guard strikes back! Science-denier Bill Maher […]

You don't get mad at a dog for being a dog

And you shouldn't get angry at a lefty hack for being a lefty hack. I don't blame MIT Economist Jonathan Gruber for this laughable piece of analysis that purports to claim that Obamacare is a net gain to the economy less than a week after the Congressional Budget Office released a report that estimated Obamacare will […]

Why Obamacare is doomed

I posted a link to this article by Chris Conover at Forbes' Apothecary blog at my "night job" website the other day. If this graphic turns out to be true, then expect Obamacare to go down in flames, taking a lot of Democrats with it. These numbers, if accurate, are devastating. The "losers" category is 55.3 percent […]

What's wrong with Obamacare

To borrow a line from "Best of the Web Today": Longest blog post ever written. I'm not going to actually try to provide a one-stop post detailing every screw-up surrounding the president's signature health insurance reform. I've spent a lot of time over at my "second job" posting link after link after link to stories […]

Liberal sympathy

On Friday, New York Mayor Nanny Michael Bloomberg introduced a measure that would limit the supply of powerful pain medicine in city-run hospitals in New York City. “The city hospitals we control, so … we’re going to do it and we’re urging all of the other hospitals to do it, voluntary guidelines. Somebody said, oh, […]

World's dumbest argument

I was reading some lefty blogs last weekend when I came across the most idiotic argument supporting the Obamacare contraception coverage mandate: That covering contraceptive services actually saves the insurance company money. Seriously? These are the same insurance companies that always have the adjective "greedy" preceding their name. And if they just started covering contraceptives, […]

On the politics

Very briefly, there are some in the blogosphere very desperate to find a silver lining in the nonsensical contortions of Chief Justice John Roberts. The theory goes that Roberts somehow knew that upholding this joke of a tax/not-a-tax law would re-energize the Tea Party, short-circuit an effort by President Obama and his allies on the […]

I was reading a garbage St. Louis P-D editorial on firearms and it linked to this 3-year-old USA Today article on "gun violence" by state. I put the numbers in an Excel doc and isolated homicides from suicides and the rankings change a bit. 🤔
