Obamacare: Fair share of less care

Lately, I've been hearing from readers who are among the million Californians who had private health care plans, received cancellation notices and now have to buy new coverage. Some figured that if they signed up with their old providers - Blue Shield or Anthem - they'd have access to the same doctors and hospitals. Not quite. In Marin, San Francisco and Alameda counties, new plans in Covered California exchanges don't include doctors and hospitals in other counties.

Google’s barge glides by in SF

The developers who wanted to build 8 Washington in San Francisco spent seven years lobbying City Hall - winning approval from the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors - only to watch opponents kill the project by putting a successful measure on the November ballot.

Obamacare’s next problem: Doc Shock

"The bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future," President Barack Obama said of his signature Affordable Care Act on Tuesday. It would be easier to believe the president if he hadn't said in 2009, "If you like the plan you have, you can keep it. If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too."

The criminal justice system at its worst

You may remember hearing about the Montana judge who sentenced a former high school teacher who admitted to raping a 14-year-old student to 30 days in prison.

Knockout Game: No big deal?

The "knockout game" - and the media underreporting of it - combines the breakdown of the family with the media's condescending determination to serve as a public relations bureau for blacks. The "game" is a dare in which a young man - all the perps appear to be male people of color, mostly blacks - tries to literally knock out an innocent bystander with one blow. Both National Public Radio and The New York Times say these reports of the "knockout game" being widespread are overblown and do not represent a trend. Really?

Uncle Sam a global sucker

It should be clear that teaching Americans we are now part of a global economy and teaching schoolchildren they are citizens of the world is a deceitful message to con us into a plan to add the poor countries around the earth to our list of welfare handout recipients. The United Nations globalists have gathered in Warsaw, Poland, for another conference to devise language to talk the United States into opening our treasury to the world.
