Relevant and even prescient commentary on news, politics and the economy.

Not the Proud Ones or the Oathers this time

Amazing Republicans are trying to skew the peaceful (so far) protests of pro-choice consisting mostly of women as being violent. Not that they never get angry . . . they can and will. They are not happy with SCOTUS and are making it known peacefully. Cruz and others are trying to make this into something […]

  Andrew writes on healthcare, mostly the PPACA plan and the various metal plans, and the latest gig (ARPA) resulting in lower costs for anyone under 250% FPL and lower costs for anyone higher than 400% FPL.

This is as Explosive as Anything I have Read, “No Books. No Money. Just the Truth.”

Steve Schmidt has created his own Substack to tell his story. It is about lying, lying in politics, lying as a politician, and his lying. It is one hell of an interesting read, I only put part of this up. You can see the rest “here” or clicking on part of the title. Steve Schmidt’s […]

The Washington Post […]

Stealth II

I think that with “Stealth” I indulged my inclination to try to figure things out more than I should have.The practical point is my claim that stealth technology is obsolete.

Political Supreme Court takes away the rights of Citizens

Who is Alito or the conservative court majority to decide what is best for women?
