Mythbusters #4: A Rebuttal

Share

I’m always hoping for intelligent and challenging feedback to my articles, and I received an email from a good friend of mine who was happy to oblige me. This is not the first debate we’ve carried on by email – the one around the health care reform debate could have filled a small book – […]

The Extraordinary Spectacle

Share

November 7th, 2012. Today, Democrats woke up to the thrill of victory, while Republicans suffered the bitterness of defeat. Many people of both parties didn’t wake up at all, since they had never gone to bed: at least that was my case as I watched the election unfold from Munich, Germany. CNN didn’t predict President […]

Share

The time has come for Common Sense to wrap up its Election 2012 coverage with a final update.

We can also expect that the September and October payrolls and consumer/business […]

PerryCare vs. RomneyCare

Share

Texas leads the nation in the number of medically uninsured citizens[1]. No surprise there. Governor Perry is quite proud of the fact, as well: this is “lean government”, which in Republican terms translates as cutting even basic services for the poor. The Texas economy is growing fast and adding jobs, which can also be said of Saudi Arabia […]

The Weakness and Strength of Mitt Romney

Share

Presidential politics are never very enlightening, but Mitt Romney’s campaign is setting new lows for confusion, errors and missed opportunities. Some of these are staff errors, unavoidable in a campaign which has been grinding on for over a year now; others are missteps by the candidate himself. The worst, though, are the gaffes which display […]
