PAYING A PHANTOM TICKET

HILLARY\’S HEALTH & DEMOCRAT PROSPECTS

For well over a year now, I have periodically blogged my suspicion that Hillary Clinton may not run for President because her health will not allow her to.  Partly, this was a pure gut feeling, partly it was the way she has looked over this time (older, squatter and more haggard – I do not mean these adjectives to be mean or sarcastic, only honest), and partly it was –...

THE CANARY IN OUR COALMINE?

CBS AND OBAMACARE

The good news is that CBS is offering insufficient coverage to just what a debacle ObamaCare is, how much it is disliked by the public, and how completely the Obama administration – from the top on down – has lied to us about it. How can this possibly be good news?  Because, compared to NBC and ABC its coverage is massive. According to Scott Whitlock\’s piece at...
