On the Landrieu/Obama "keep your bad insurance" plan

Wouldn’t it be better to fix the PPACA cost issues? I don’t think there would be many objections if the cancelled plans were replaced with reasonable plans at similar costs. The problem is that many people are facing financial hardship because of the requirements of the PPACA, not that people want to keep their junk insurance.

(This is a retitled repost—sorry.)

On the LAX Shootings, to a libertarian

Originally posted elsenet:
If the country is saturated with ideas like "Taking up arms against an authoritarian government is a moral thing" and "The US government is authoritarian," then sooner or later some crazy person is going to put the two together and do something crazy like bomb the Murrah building or shoot TSA agents.
Don't throw gasonline on the flames and then claim you didn't know there was a risk.
