Light Blogging

I’m going down to Long Beach to the AIAA space conference, and probably won’t take a laptop. I may post something or tweet from my phone, but probably not a lot.

    The AIAA conference in Long Beach? Doesn’t that take place on the Queen Mary?

    Didn’t Rand just post something about people disappearing from cruise ships?

    And now he says he’s dropping out of sight?

    Coincidence?

    Funny autocorrect. Back in 1991 when I was in the Air Force, the word processor kept suggesting that the abbreviation for Technical Sergeants (TSgts) should be changed to “Thugs”.

    More evidence that “Democrats” are anything but:

    “I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that,” Perdue said. “You want people who don’t worry about the next election.” – Gov. Bev Perdue (D – NC)

    Sadly, the Raleigh News and Observer editors, good enough to report it, still try to cover by suggesting she was joking. But the reporter didn’t describe it that way:
    It’s unclear whether Perdue, a Democrat, is serious — but her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.

    If anything, I’d like to suspend the 33% rule for the Senate and put them all up for consideration. But that would require a constitutional amendment and not the whim of an executive.

    Drudge or someone linked an op-ed by Peter R. Orszag that pretty much advocated the same thing as Gov. Bev.

    Saw this story about doctors and their approval of the AMA and Obamacare.

    The Jackson & Coker survey joins a large stack of research with similar findings. In February, the National Physicians Survey discovered that more than three times as many doctors believed that the quality of American health care would “deteriorate” rather than “improve” under ObamaCare. Nine of ten physicians think ObamaCare will have a negative impact on their profession.

    Pretty interesting article, never knew that the AMA only represented about 17% of physicians.

    Yeah, I heard many doctors cancelled membership, but then the socialist pushing Obamacare told me I was wrong. That survey would translate to 70% of all physicians even assuming 100% of AMA agree with Obamacare.

    And we may regret limiting the rhetoric to Obamacare, as all Dems deserve the albatross.
