Sick Care for Everyone?

Last week’s most highlighted event has been, and still is, the battle in Washington about what politicians call “Health Care” reform. Two questions are on the forefront of the issue: Is it really a reform? Is it really about health? Actually if logic is allowed to enter the debate, it should be said that what […]

Does the public actually prefer “Dirty Laundry?”

I believe the time has come to discuss the painful subject of public opinion. We all know that the public is fickle and easily convinced to turn its opinions in a completely opposite direction as easily and  quickly as the wind does, apparently as long as that change involves moving from acclamation to condemnation.   However […]

Let’s Stand Up, America!

The True Cost of Eliminating Funding for Birth Control

I believe one does not need to be clairvoyant to predict what would happen, if Congress succeeds […]

Personhood Legislation?

A long time ago, I came to the conclusion that most scientific or technical research tends to reach wrong conclusions, because it looks at a specific condition as if it were an isolated system, i.e. without direct connection with external factors and devoid of repercussions. Recently I have concluded that the “isolated-system” assumption applies to […]
