Operation Snail Speed

Killing innovation in health care for votes

It’s not bad enough that the FDA watched us die waiting for new medicines, now the anti-market Democrats are going to stop the development of those new drugs by taking the profits away.

Remember that the profits on successful drugs pay for the research that went into the drugs that failed, either clinically or competitively. Viagra saved countless lives by financing research on other drugs that were not worth the risk on their own. No “excess profits” means less research.

Scott Adam’s take on Jan Committee

Twitter – unintended outcomes

Adam’s has often turned out to be right about the way people’s opinions are formed, and it is often not at all what was intended.

“Five things no Democrat wanted, yet the #Jan6thHearings delivered:

1. Kept Trump the most relevant figure in politics.

2. Made us think about election rigging until it seemed true.

3. Made all Republicans feel hunted.

4. Made Congress look useless.

5. Debunked own narrative.”

I really don’t want Trump to run, but if Adams is right, Democrats have handed Trump 2024

What is the matter with Kansas this time?

Overwhelming vote to keep abortion constitutionally legal in Kansas. The vote to overturn the state amendment failed 59-41 or so. This despite a campaign to confuse the voters with a “Yes” vote to mean “choice”. Early interviews seemed to indicate a concern by voters seeing what some states are passing or proposing regarding abortion, medical emergencies, doctors liabilities, birth control, miscarriage medication…

Despite what the right is insisting, this is a huge issue for Americans.

1/6 attackers treated with leniency.

“Friedrich also said she worried that Reffitt not be unduly punished for deciding to go to trial, rather than enter into a plea bargain with prosecutors.” Hmmm, some young miscreants that have tried that locally got long sentences if they wanted a trial over plea bargaining.

This felon was armed with a gun and attacked the Capitol, engaging with police. He was a gang member. Both before and after the attack, he said he was going to drag legislators by ropes down the steps.

The judge decided to soften what prosecutors were demanding. A man who willingly participated in an effort to overturn the election should be relieved he lives in our country. Somehow I doubt he realizes or appreciates what we have here.
