PaulE 308pm - While I've submitted my preferences for the conduct of our healthcare industry several times over the last decade, perhaps it's time to do it again. Let's continue the healthcare discussion on a future post that should be up soon.
Would that freedom were free to obtain and maintain; as is tyranny for the achievement and maintenance of which you need do nothing.

George Rebane Keep hearing about CBO’s assessment of the Trump budget and healthcare reform among other things. The lamestream is reporting the office’s assessments as coming down from the mountain on stone tablets. No one seems to remember that the... Continue reading

BillT 822pm - Always wonder when I hear that. Who will replace all the current departing old people; the forever young ones?

Hey Russ, your comment repeats a topic in my post as if you were introducing it here. Whenever a topic has already been introduced either by me or by a previous commenter, it's good to reference it in your own comment that expands on it. That gives the reader the full coverage of said topic in these pages or at least in this comment stream. Thanks.
re Russ 839am and fish 1029am - these indeed are more "observations and interpretations of events from the last great century of man."

Gentlemen - the new and improved Sandbox is now open. Please deposit such comments there. This post is ABOUT reinstating the Sandbox, and NOT a Sandbox per se. Thank you.

George Rebane Former President Obama willfully violated Americans’ 4th Amendment rights for years by authorizing and executing large-scale surveillance on all electronic communications by our intelligence agencies (primarily NSA). He did this in the face of protests from the FISA... Continue reading

Mr Tozer et al - you silver-penned devil, your 937am scribble clearly deserved to serve as the 'opening prayer' for the resurrected Sandbox. The threshold has been passed, the Sandbox is again open for business. http://rebaneruminations.typepad.com/rebanes_ruminations/2017/05/sandbox-25may2017.html

[I accede to the semi-popular demand that RR should reinstate the Sandbox. So once more the repository for the sundry, the specious, and the surreptitiously studied sobriquets is open for business. And once more I invite my learned readers to... Continue reading

Ah yes, another warm riposte from Mr Juvinall ;-)

BillT 747am - On the mark Mr Tozer. And that is the main reason we need an immigration policy that emphasizes inviting immigrants who serve our national interests with talents that we no longer teach our young.
Re 708am & 828am - We must never forget that Democrats have 'owned' California for decades, and since the millennium that ownership has become lock, stock, and barrel. Paradise lost.
George Rebane The new home for the Sandbox announced in ‘Sandbox Sayonara’ did not stick. Mr Todd Juvinall has asked me to take it back. In the interval since its departure RR readers have done a yeoman’s job of keeping... Continue reading

PaulE 1022am - Paul, any early sense of the direction CAG wants to take on the ordinance?

PaulE 936pm - About as credible as Huffpo. http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/05/single-payer-slayer.php
PaulE 710pm - Paul as a newsman do you really take what you cited with nothing but anonymous innuendo as real news? Has journalism really sunk that low?
BillT 156pm - what can I say Mr Tozer? It looks like the Sandbox has come home to roost.
Wow! Not a coherent thread in sight. Everyone is talking past each other. But we do have a stake in the ground - Seth Rich's murder is yesterday's news so there's no need to pay any more attention to it since its resolution will not affect anyone.
PaulE 659pm - there are no perfectly free markets Paul, and as always America used to have a much better healthcare system than today. But you are among the la-la land people who see nothing but workers' paradise in countries where government takes charge. I notice you did not comment on the Canadian system's description. Finally, one more time. No country will go broke offering socialized healthcare - that was a gratuitous remark. All any government has to when healthcare becomes more expensive is to cut services, increase waiting times, and work their 'death committees'.
Scenes 154pm - the notion of making "the books balance" for nationalized healthcare not known. There is no balancing of healthcare books, only comparing expenses to budgeted income and that is tenuous. The reality of all existing healthcare programs is that they are unsustainable. Even with the reduction/elimination of services, their cost as a fraction of GDP (and, of course, their federal budgets) always seems to increase. And that can't go on forever.
Re Nationalized Healthcare - I find that people of the Left have a dismal understanding of economics, the operation of the markets, and human nature in general. All of their policies are based on the general practice of existentially dysfunctional altruism. Their uncritical adoration of single payer or nationalized healthcare fits into this view perfectly. But nowhere does it work like they report that it does, be it England, Germany, Denmark, ..., or in Canada. Canada is often cited as the 'why can't we be like ...?' country. Here's a dose of realism on Canadian healthcare that is repeated throughout Europe. https://2lffqo2moysixpyb349z0bj6-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/kurisko_oct_2008_web.pdf
DonB 1237pm - Well said Mr Bessee; can anyone hereabouts imagine Obama, or even Hillary, pulling off this deal even if they had wanted to. The jobs and reduction of unit costs are a win-win for America, even before we start considering the foreign policy benefit of making the Saudis a more formidable opponent to the Iranian mullahs who'd each give a left nut to become the Mideast hegemon. And now we can turn back to Turkey and get them serious about putting up a united front against Iran. The Saudis don't have much heartburn about Turkey becoming a civilized ally since their family received the Arabian peninsula part of the Ottoman empire as a gift from the British for getting their camel drivers to oppose the Ottoman Turks during WW1. Good things can happen if we let The Donald do a little wheeling and dealing.
