The Obamacare death spiral is on

Bob Livingston

Posted on Personal Liberty August 12, 2016 by Bob Livingston

The Obamacare deathcare system is dying and it may be completely dead before the next president is sworn into office.

As The Hill reported Thursday, two major insurers in the last month – Aetna and Anthem – both reversed course on their plans to expand in the marketplace. The five largest insurers say they are losing money on Obamacare. Several other high-profile insurers are raising concerns about the mix of consumers (not enough young, healthy people and too many old and sick people are signing up) and whether they can continue selling Obamacare plans.

It is All Government’s Fault

Walter E Block

By Walter E. Block  July 4, 2016, article at  LewRockwell.com It is all the government’s fault. It is always the government’s fault. Pretty much every bad thing is the government’s fault.

Don’t Confuse the Declaration of Independence with the Constitution

DelarationOfIndependence

by Ryan McMaken at Mises.org
Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call “the Constitution” and the Declaration of independence are not pretty much the same thing or “connected in spirit,” or “two sides of the same coin.” The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.

What’s really behind the ongoing push for gun control?

The gun grabbers tell you they want more gun control in order to keep you safe. But that is the Big Lie.

If they really wanted to limit guns used most to murder people they’d target handguns, which are used in almost half of all homicides. Of 8,124 murders using a firearm in 2014, handguns were used 5,562 times. Rifles were used to murder someone only 248 times. And the dreaded “assault weapon” the politicians make such a kerfuffle over is a subset of rifles, so the number of people killed by those is much lower.

Just Boundaries and National Self-Determination

Rothbard: “What national boundaries can be considered as just? In the first place, it must be recognized that there are no just national boundaries per se; that real justice can only be founded on the property rights of individuals. If fifty people decided voluntarily to set up an organization for common services or self-defense of their persons and properties in a certain geographical area, then the boundaries of that association, based on the just property rights of the members, will also be just.”

A Week in the Life of the American Police State

John Whitehead: “If you’ve been caught up in the circus that is the presidential election, you’ve likely missed the latest news about all the ways in which the government continues to erode our freedoms, undermine our sovereignty, abuse our trust, invade our homes, invade our privacy, destroy our property, hijack our bank accounts, and generally render itself above the law.

Then again, this is all par for the course from a militaristic government that is armed to the teeth, wages war against its own people, imprisons its citizens for profit, marches in lockstep with the corporate elite, and treats human beings as little more than cattle to be branded, bought, sold and butchered.’

Who, Clinton, Trump? It Doesn’t Matter!

I am trying to subscribe to Bob Livingston’s posts and thoughts. Every day I’ve been wading thru his Personal Liberty Digest, but am finding that usually it’s Bob Livingston who has it right; at the PLB, not so much. But at his newsletter, if you don’t buy something, seems one can’t subscribe. That just doesn’t fit my old-man circumstances!
