The motivating force behind the first tea party protests of February 27, 2009, was , in part, crony capitalism. Across the country and on the steps of the Arch in St. Louis, signs and speakers denounced bailouts for failed businesses. Rasmussen found that 68 percent of Americans believe Big Business and Big Government work together against the rest of us. I think they’re right. Since then, crony capitalism has only grown. Obamacare and Medicaid Expansion.
Why would the Missouri Chamber of Commerce want to expand Obamacare in Missouri? Short-sighted pursuit of money. The Missouri Chambermaids of Cronyism Here’s the simple truth: the Missouri Chamber of Commerce is not conservative. It does not exist to advance limited government and fiscal responsibility and free enterprise capitalism. The Missouri Chamber of Commerce has become convinced that it must lie down before government and beg for scraps from the federal table. Like good men
If you can’t find full-time work, blame Obamacare. One reason the Middle Class has shriveled and wages shrunk over the the past four years is underemployment. People want full time work, but settle for anything. And anything is usually part time. Most of the fantastic new jobs created since the 2009 have been part-time jobs. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 14.6% of Americans want a full-time job but settle for part-time. The
Robin Carnahan, the Democrat Missouri Secretary of State, writes ballot language like the editorial page editor of the Post-Dispatch. Carnahan wrote, perhaps, the most biased and unprofessional ballot initiative ever written regarding Proposition E. She wanted you to think that Proposition E would outlaw all insurance in the state of Missouri and compel pet owners to feed rat poison to their animals. Here’s the original ballot language Carnahan wrote: Luckily, a judge slapped Robin down
At the Pachyderm Club’s national convention last year, I overheard a Republican Missouri State Representative talking about HB 609. “It was the best bill I’ve ever been involved with,” she said. “Those people who just went nuts don’t know anything about insurance.” If you read my blog, you’re likely one of the “those people,” the ignorant masses who don’t understand the fineries of the legislative process. You don’t appreciate how hard the insurance industry lobbyists
Sometimes the folks at Business Insider get fairly simple ideas ass backwards. Take their Winners and Losers story on the Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision. It’s dead wrong about Millennials (born after 1982): Young people can also count themselves winners in the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, which allows children to stay on their parents’ insurance plan until their 26th birthday.

This is no time to celebrate.
Yesterday, I gave you a reason to celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision. But I never said to let go of your anger or depression. That’s because we need creativity, focus, and action, and you get those through emotional distress. In his new best-selling book, Jonah Lehrer discusses the link between depression and creativity: This helps explain why Forgas has found that states of sadness— he induces the downcast mood with a film about death and
It won’t look like decay to many. John Roberts will be the toast of the political class for years to come. He’ll attend all the prettiest events with the prettiest people. Barbara Streisand will have him out to her massively carbon-releasing Hollywood mansion. The Washington Post intelligentsia will place his bust in its pantheon of The Evolved. He might even golf with Bill and Obama. But beneath the black robe grows a dark stain on
