Obamacare makes health care less affordable

Just learned nder the so-called Affordable Care Act, the cost of my monthly premium (that I pay for myself) is about to increase another 52%, meaning that it will have doubled in cost since President Obama signed tthat unpopular legislation.

I expect to write a strongly-worded letter to my soon-to-be Congressman Adam Schiff and to Senator Feinstein and Mrs. Boxer and expect them to express concern for my situation and then proceed to do absolutely nothing.

This is what happens when government meddles.

Oh, and Mr. Obama, Mrs. Feinstein, Ma’am Boxer, Mr. Schiff, this means that I now have less money to give to charitable causes.

Playing into the media narrative

Is there anything he doesn’t politicize?

Slow blogging/delayed diva

Once again, my blogging has fallen victim to my creative writing.

As I wrote even more of the third chapter yesterday, I neglected to set up the blogress diva competition.  I should be able to get to that sometime today.

So, please bear with me.  And perhaps, if there’s interest, will share some notes about the creative process.

“Why is it that mass murderers are almost always young men?”

In the conversations and articles I have seen in the wake of the horror in Connecticut, I am pleased that at least some people are breaking from the narrative the media are trying to create about the need to control guns and considering other issues behind last week’s shooting.

Blogging law professor  ask if the cultural War on Young Men contribute to mass murders.  He  excerpts 22 Stats That Prove That There Is Something Seriously Wrong With Young Men In America:

When are we finally going to admit that we have a very serious problem with this generation of young men in America? We have failed them so dramatically that it is hard to put it into words.

We have raised an entire generation of young males that don’t know how to be men, and many of them feel completely lost. Sometimes they feel so lost that they “snap” in very destructive ways. Adam Lanza and James Holmes are two names that come to mind.

Why is it that mass murderers are almost always young men?

(Jacobson via Instapundit.)  Yes, that is the real question.  One which should be asking.  Not just about mental illness, but about young, mentally unstable young men who commit mass murders and other atrocities.

Bear in mind as well that in many (but not all) hero myths, the young hero is frequently violent and often proud.  In short, some of the questions we’re asking aren’t new ones, just ones that we human beings need to keep considering.
