Red Pill economics: Reality is not optional.

"With economic models, we are a little like Neo in The Matrix, before he takes the red pill: We are not in the real world, but in a simulacrum of it, one that has rules, but rules that can be manipulated by those who understand the code. Economic models and analysis are very useful, but it’s worth taking the occasional red-pill tour, leaving behind the world of pure symbolism and taking a look at the physical economy.

Welcome to the paradise of the real."

Read it all.

What is the difference between medical coverage and medical care?
While open enrollment for coverage under the Affordable Care Act is closed, many of the newly insured are finding they can’t find doctors, landing them into a state described as “medical homelessness.”

Maybe we should have just delayed Obama’s entire presidency until after he left office. -Instapundit

The prescience of Forrest Frank Hill, a former vice-president of the Ford Foundation, is uncanny:

"Enjoy this now, because nothing like it will ever happen to you again. Eventually the naysayers and the bureaucrats will choke you to death, and you won't be able to get permission for more of these efforts."
Norman Borlaug, the agronomist whose discoveries sparked the Green Revolution, has saved literally millions of lives, yet he is hardly a household name

As a relation to Forrest's; where are they getting their stuff from (be careful).

Feds are out of control

“It’s not a dare, it’s a promise that we’re going to stand up for private property rights in the state of Texas,” Perry said.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry warned the federal Bureau of Land Management to stay away from Texas amid new concerns that it may be looking to claim thousands of acres of land in the northern part of the state. Not only does the federal government already own “too much...

Sounds like a school, police department and court in desperate need of immolation.

The New series is just a Bourne again shell of itself. Heh bash.
 
They should make a movie about Jason Bourne's origins, called Bourne Yesterday.

Introduction
I love to surf in a kayak and I take a lot of photographs.

Other than that I have worked in the technology field for almost 30 years, including sales, tech support, programmer, analyst, and engineer. Over the past 15 years I've specialized in building multi-tiered, distributed database systems and have consulted for some of the worlds largest corporations including, ahem, Enron, AIG, Sysco Foods, Shell Oil, Honeywell, McKinsey & Co, Aim Mgmt (now Invesco), Veritas Geophysical, Dynegy, Houston Industries, and a couple more I can't remember.

Every now and then I drop an F-Bomb. Sorry.
