Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Face Meet Palm

I spent most of the day following the NFL Free Agent Frenzy and attending meetings for work.  As a result, I didn't have to follow the news.  The shitty, shitty news.

One thing that has manifested itself over the ACA repeal debacle is that Republicans have no freaking idea how insurance works.  This, needless to say, presents an impediment to designing a replacement to the ACA.  Self-aware people would work to overcome this.  There is little evidence that GOP Members of Congress are self-aware.

Not only do they not understand how insurance works, they also aren't clear on racism or governance.
