There is always a certain meanness in the argument of pure evil, joined with a certain superiority in its fact.

Graft versus host disease

January 20th, 2015 by Vader

If social policy were medicine, and countries were the patients, the United States today would be a post-surgical charge under observation after an ambitious and previously untested transplant operation. Surgeons have grafted a foreign organ?—?the European welfare state?—?into the American body. The transplanted organ has thrived?—?in fact, it has grown immensely. The condition of the patient, however, is another question altogether.

–Nicholas Eberstadt

I highly recommend National Affairs. My only objections to it are that it only comes out quarterly and some of the best articles are subscriber-only.

His Majesty: “If it’s all that good, it’s worth paying for.” Touche.

Hoist with their own petard

January 06th, 2015 by Vader

The deepest irony is, of course, that Harvard professors helped to design Obamacare. And Obamacare is the reason that these changes are probably necessary.

Another slight difficulty with Obamacare

January 04th, 2014 by Vader

Adding a new baby is next to impossible.

I’d be a bit old to be having any more children, even if it was still physically possible for me. (The incident on Mustafa did an awful lot of damage.) But this has got to be yet another real downer for Adam and many others.

What Do You Know About Christian Healthcare Ministries as a Solution to the Health Insurance Problem? (January 2015 Update)

December 30th, 2013 by G.

Good Samaritan

Original Post

Many of you know that ACA cancelled my family’s private insurance.  New Obamacare insurance would cost us several hundred  dollars more a month, increasing our premiums by 150%.  It would also dramatically increase our deductible by 150%, but paying the massive premium increase would mean we had no money in the budget left over to pay actual medical bills.  To afford healthcare insurance we would have to not afford healthcare.  We have been a little desperate.

We’ve prayed and researched. We think we’ve found a solution.  We’re joining a Christian healthcare ministry (also known as a healthcare sharing group).  Specifically we’re joining the Christian Healthcare Ministries.

I know many families are looking pretty hard at their healthcare situation right now.  This post is about what I think is a decent option for Mormons and others.  I hope it helps anyone who is looking for an out from a bad insurance situation.   Please share it with anyone who might benefit.

At the same time, this post is a request for anybody who knows anything about Christian healthcare ministries to share what they know.  If you have had a good or a bad experience with a healthcare ministry or sharing organization, please tell us about it in the comments.  I and others who read this would benefit.  The more information the better.

Perspective

November 12th, 2013 by Vader

Putting things in perspective: March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days.  December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day.  What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this progressive federal government to build a working webpage.

–Thus an anonymous Internet emailer.

It gets better.   (more…)
