About 40% of the human genome has apparently been covered under one patent or another and the matter of whether that’s something that should be permitted has now come before the Supreme Court, according to this story. Those holding the current patents, of course, say yes and suggest that if it’s not allowed, scientific endeavor [...]
If the “individual mandate” is only constitutional as a tax, why is Obama trying to push the meme that it’s not?
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Question: if the President finds that he is in the midst of undertaking an action that has been [...]
The Centeno-Schultz Clinic in Colorado (www.centenoschultz.com) has come up with a procedure wherein they treat patients’ severe joint pain with a non-surgical injection of the patients’ own stem cells into the affected area. The process, simply put, involves drawing the patient’s own blood, centrifuging it and extracting the stem cells that we all produce, and [...]
Picture yourself as an author, producing an article for a magazine or even a book for publication. In order to make your point or get the particulars of a scene across, you make use of prose from a literary work literally decades old, a work that’s firmly in the public domain.

A government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the rule of law invariably embraces favoritism as friends, allies and those with the best-funded lobbyists are rewarded. Favoritism inevitably leads to corruption, and corruption invites [...]
“Those who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety,” said Benjamin Franklin in an oft-quoted comment. But the matter of access versus security is tightrope men have walked throughout history. Once upon a time going to the airport to catch a flight involved as much security [...]
McQ uses the term “irony” to describe it. I think “hypocrisy” is more accurate. Speaking to a post by Matt Yglesias wherein the vaunted liberal says, basically, ‘of course liberals are unhappy with the proposal because there were no liberals involved in its creation’ McQ wonders where Yglesias’ perspective was during the Obamacare so-called “debate.” [...]
But… but… but…. Obamacare means insurance costs will go down! Bend the cost curve down! Right? RIGHT?!? Apparently… wrong. AARP’s endorsement helped secure passage of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Now the seniors’ lobby is telling its employees their insurance costs will rise partly as a result of the law. In an e-mail to [...]
…that Congress wants every citizen to prove that they are insured, but not that they are citizens. (Hat tip to my niece and her husband for this one.)
