Health Insurance

I found this video via Needs to Be Said. It asks if it is really a good idea for health insurance to cover everything instead of just catastrophes. I found the bit about the Whole Foods Grocery Store benefits especially interesting. So I encourage you to watch this 6 minute clip.

Happy Constitution Day!

The Constitution is a wonderful thing. You can get a free copy of the Constitution from the Heritage Foundation here.

My kids are having a light load on their normal routine so that we can spend more time talking about the Constitution. I think that every American should have a working knowledge of this document. Maybe then we would follow it more closely.

In a previous post, I have said that Texas isn't my ideal place to live, but it does have its advantages. Gov. Perry has come up with a commercial touting Texas' good points as part of his campaign for re-election. I was impressed in spite of my self. The freedom score part especially piqued my interest. You can read more about the study here.

Sad but True

When Dr. Tiller was murdered, someone (I don't remember who) said that if someone had killed a pro-life activist no coverage would be given. Shane at Caffeinated Thoughts did a good summary post of the deafening silence.

It is sad that our country cares more about the murder of a disgusting baby killing man than we do about the murder of a man that stood for life. Of course James Poullion was not famous (or should I say infamous) as Dr. Tiller. But I wonder if it had been someone famous (say Janet Folger), would the national response really be that much different?

Here's to You Mr. Robinson

I don't watch basketball so I didn't watch the basketball hall of fame inductions. But my mother does and did. She said the highlight of the whole thing was David Robinson's speech. So I watched it for myself on YouTube. She was right it was speech less about self and more about God, family, and friends. I think that he did a good job honoring God and encouraging people to seek Him without being overbearing.
