In which John discusses Canada's heroic elimination of the penny and how divisive political discourse--on both sides of the aisle--hurts both the American people and the American economy. Examples of poor policy making include congress's failure to secure long-term funding for the FAA (which should be easy, since it's paid for entirely by a tax that most travelers are more…
Insecure Idiot Female decides to move to Washington with her dad for some wacky reason, she meets Sparkly Dweeb, falls in love with Sparkly Dweeb. A gang of other Sparkly Dweebs trespass on their property and get hungry, nice Sparkly Dweebs rip them to shreds. The end.
Insecure Idiotic Female has bad dreams, Sparkly Dweeb ditches her so he can ‘protect her’ blah blah blah, we all know he just couldn’t handle her insecurity, so she hangs out with the…
Have you ever had a dream that freaked you out so much you woke up crying and didn't want to go back to sleep? I just did. I have been crying on and off since I woke up, and I can't seem to want to go back to sleep. I can't quite remember it; just this feeling of aloneness, like no one cared about me ever. It wasn't that I was the only person left, Just that none of the people cared about me or even knew I existed. And I just can't shake that feeling. Even though I'm in a room full of…
In which Hank is pissed off because the price of his prescription drugs went up 1200% in one month. So he asks nerdfighteria to write a nice letter to Roger Boissonneault at email@example.com.
If you could ask him why the price went up so much, why the program expired four months early, and why no effort was made to contact my doctor about these dramatic changes, that would be fantastic. Also, whatever else you want to say.
My cousin Joseph came over yesterday, and that is the reason for the lacking of a post yesterday. Today I asked him what I should write about, and he replied "I don't care". I asked, and I took him literally. Therefore, I decided to write about things I don't care about, and mostly these my replies from conversation from… Continue
In which John offers a summary of the health care reform bill that just passed the U.S. senate, discussing the insurance exchange market, pre-existing condition clauses, medicare taxes, and other fine points of the still-under-debate bill. Here's a good explanation of how the insurance exchanges will look like:… Continue
I totally love how Lieberman seems completely shocked. I hope this is an indicator of how the rest of the Senate is going to start acting- meaning I hope they all treat him like the douche he… Continue

With John's last video promoting a "Free Market" approach to health care, I thought I would present my alternative Free Market approach. This is a presentation from Clayton Christensen to college students at MIT, but it shouldn't be too hard to follow. That said, it is a lot denser and longer than John's video.
The Innovator's Prescription: A Disruptive Solution to the Healthcare Crisis
This has me just so outraged. I posted this on the Health Care forum because it did relate to what was going on:
The shouting, violence, and guns have been driving me nuts. I actually came this close to writing a blog about the guy with the sign about watering the tree of liberty at Obama's town hall and in relation to the First…Continue
On Friday, Sarah Palin posted the following "note" about the health care bill on Facebook:
As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!
The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the…Continue
I haven't met one person who actually remembered that today is the day that Martin Luther King, Jr was shot on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee.
Not a single person.
And the people I know are actually the kind of person who knew who Martin was, unlike a special person who we shall not name here in case of her name soiling this blog. (but in case you are swedish and can understand this crazy [but not in a good way] persons mind,… Continue
