Honor thy father

Thought for the day: Have we really lost confidence in our ability to govern ourselves through the ballot box? What fools our fathers were if this be true.–Daniel Hannan, MEP [...]

Let’s put these guys in charge of health care.

I just attempted to call the Arapahoe County Department of Human Services, Child Support Enforcement Services, on behalf of a client.

He had received a letter regarding child support he owed and a problem with his wage garnishment to pay that support. I was calling to discuss the issue.
The letter had a name and a number. I called the number and got a long recording telling me I could get the fax number, the address, information on a new $25 fee being assessed, information on the week’s court docket, and how to invest in foreclosures and get rich. (Just joking about the last one).
Finally, I got an option to push 5 if I wanted to talk to a person. I pushed 5.
I got several minutes of elevator music. Then I got another option, telling me I could push 1 if I wanted to leave a voice mail. I was assured I would receive a call back.
I pushed 1. I then got a recording telling me “sorry, English voice mail is not available at this time.” The next sound I heard was a “click.” I had been disconnected by the government.
And some people can’t understand why some of us don’t want the government running health care.

Ken Burns and opinion (based on…?) as history

Hat tip to the people at the Illinois Policy Institute for bringing this excellent article, regarding a comment Ken Burns has apparently repeatedly made while plugging his new documentary, to my attention. Burns claims to have some insight into the Declaration’s subtext (personally, I always found it to be pretty straight forward). And it is, simply, [...] [...]

Pirate Radio

Richard Curtis. Bill Nighy. Philip Seymour Hoffman. Kenneth Branagh. Via the NY Post’s Kyle Smith: “Pirate Radio” takes place in 1966, when the BBC refused to broadcast much pop or rock — so a ship anchored just outside British territorial waters broadcast rock around the clock that half of Britain’s population (according to Curtis) listened to every [...] [...]

The ghost of Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson, a man so in love with upsetting human hierarchy it clouded his judgment of the French Revolution, once wrote, “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” Which begs the question: why? And, is not the reflexive true, as well, then? Couldn’t the natural progress of things [...] [...]

Return to Free Market Best Hope for Health Insurance Reform

A brief comment I made to [...] [...]
