Bet on it: Hillary WILL continue to make companies subjugated to The State

by Skip December 23, 2015

Hillary is a statist, through and through.  She is the epitome of such – ONLY Government (and those employed by it) can effect good and it MUST be in charge of all aspects of our lives.  Even when it is obvious that Government has screwed up and made things worse.  Instead of leaving well enough […]

“Deductibles are too damn high!”

by Skip November 15, 2015

Yeah, politicians and their promises.  All we hear from the sycophants of Obama and Obamacare is that it is “affordable” for low income folks to buy an Obamacare insurance policy – and now we know that TANSTAFFL still applies because as Government artificially lowers that rate for the Have-Nots, the premium prices necessarily rise for […]
