Ban the Man?

Next month the world’s athletes gather in Beijing, what we used to call Peking, for the XXIX Olympics, this iteration bearing the slogan “One World, One Dream.” One outstanding American athlete had a dream to compete in these Olympics, but will not be doing so. It’s not because of drugs, ...

Wonder why Universal Health Care is Nothing but Smoke and Mirrors?

American Alliance Training Network Corp., July 27, 2008 MASSACHUSETTS’S UNIVERSAL health care law turned one in April.

Who Should Pay for Health Care?
