Health Care Part 6 – A Right or a Privilege

Health Care SymbolAllow me to first apologize that I was still unable to get through all of the health care bill passed by the House of (Non)Representatives on Saturday night. I am working through the first half of the week preparing for my business to run without me for the second half of the week. Never an easy task. Please remember all that I will have articles set to post for the second half of the week, but I will not actually be here posting them. I will attempt to jump in whenever possible to take care of any moderation, but can make no promises. I will return home after the memorial services on Monday and should be back in full swing then.

And that is that the people of the United States have completely lost sight of everything that the founders were striving for when they did the things that they did. We have fallen into traps that were laid with the best of intention in most cases, and nefariously in others. I hear the calls to return to our roots and I submit to you that we are not ready to return to our roots….

A Great Posting on Another Site

Well, I had to have a night where I worked on schoolwork or I would put at risk that 4.0 average that I have managed to keep until age 38! As some of you may know, or maybe you don’t, a dear friend inspired me to start this blog in the first place. And I owe her for it tremendously. Recently, we decided that the Libertarian Dissection I am doing is a great topic for her readers as well, so we have been doing dual posts so that her readers get to have our discussions too! But tonight I went to her site and found this amazing post….
