A Real Blue-Collar Guy

  Ed Schultz is dead. To paraphrase Shakespeare, we’re probably not going to see his like again .Not on TV, anyway. There used to be more people on TV like Ed, people who stood for something, who spoke their minds, without sugar coating what they had to say. Now – left or right – it […]

Where Do Those Crazy Health Care “Statistics” Come From?

The health care “debate” in America has become so confusing that I shudder to contemplate the end result. The issues involved are incredibly challenging. And it doesn’t help that everyone seems to have different solutions – and even different “facts.” I heard someone on television say that Canada has three million people waiting for health […]
