I finally… finally…slapped that nasty little bug in the comments section. Been a while since I’ve had the programmer’s hat on.

I have been saying for years that the fight over health care and who runs it was a financial battle.  No, not a financial battle for the “little guy”.  Just a couple of big ones. Michelle Malkin reports on one such situation today: The St. Petersburg Times reports on an FBI raid of WellCare, a […]

I think it amazing that this Scott Beauchamp story has been met with such stony silence from the mainstream media.  It has only been twelve hours now or so since the story came out that documents and transcripts of phone conversations had been leaked to the web.  Granted, that’s a fairly short period of time […]
