Overtreated: More medical care isn't always better -- In military terms, this is "battlefield preparation." In political terms, this is "spin." It is the first shot of the coming campaign to convince you that the cuts in medical care that are inevitable with Obamacare are good for you. There's an easier way to fix the "overtreated" problem: limit the lawsuit liability of doctors--"defensive medicine" means defending the doctor from lawyers, not defending the patient. But the Democrats didn't want to hear that simple truth. They still don't.

Just Like Henry: Congressional Democrats Avoid Constituents -- "Running for office" has not, in the United States of America, traditionally entailed fleeing from those whose votes you (allegedly) require.

The ‘Costs’ of Free Speech: Consequentialism and the First Amendment don’t mix. -- Did you know that Obama's Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan's view on your First Amendment speech rights boils down to "well, it depends on the 'societal costs.'" That not only disqualifies her for serving as a judge at any level, it should forever bar her from pulling any kind of paycheck from any government entity in this nation. What part of "Congress Shall Make No Law" escapes her comprehension? Good Lord . . . Can Democrats Limit Their Losses with Attacks on Republicans?

The Big Ten and Midwestern Identity: Why college sports should stop messing with the Big Ten -- It is entirely possible that the Presidents of the Big Ten universities have forgotten, if they ever knew, what their institutions are, and who those institutions are supposed to serve.

But considering how Congressional Democrats are acting, perhaps that's not the plan for the laughably mis-named "Democratic Party" in 2010, and then forever after . . .
