The risks of privatization in the Medicaid and Medicare programs

Increasingly, two of the largest publicly supported healthcare programs, Medicaid and Medicare, are administered by for-profit insurance companies. The privatization of the Medicaid long-term care programs has been implemented largely through state managed care contracts with insurance companies to administer Medicaid LTC funds. Medicare privatization has been similarly implemented through contracts with insurance companies in the Medicare Advantage (MA) program. Privatization, without rigorous ...

"Honey, we have Smith & Wesson at home." No.1

The barrel of the Regulation Police has the typical Smith rollmark of the period. Traditional sans serif font and "lazy" ampersand. The markings on the barrel of the paltik don't resemble any alphabet I can find, and may be "greeking". There's a fascinating...and fairly recent...piece on the underground gun industry in Cebu here at the NYT. (It may be paywalled. I trust you're savvy enough to find your way around that via an archive if necessary.) If dudes in the jungle in the 1920s or 1930...

5 Must-Read Travel Books by Authors Famous for Their Fiction

We tend to think of the authors of travel books and the authors of fiction books as two separate and distinct categories of writer. You’ve got your Tocqueville’s and Bill Bryson’s on one side, and your F. Scott Fitzgerald’s and Harper Lee’s on another. But there have in fact been plenty of writers — including some of literature’s most luminous novelists — who have worked in both genres. Often to great effect: unsurprisingly, the talents which lend themselves to worthy fiction — the ability t...

SIG Sauer CEO Discusses US Army NGSW Program

Much digital ink has been spilled over the last several years regarding the US Army’s NGSW (Next Generation Squad Weapons) Program.

Today’s M4A1 has seen some notable updates and improvements, to be sure, but at its […] Read More … The post SIG Sauer CEO Discusses US Army NGSW Program appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

The Biden Administration’s Assault on Firearms Industry Continues

Joe Biden mentioned a number of the anti-gun goals he has set during his recent address to Congress.  IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Joe Biden mentioned a number of the anti-gun goals he has set during his recent address to Congress, but for some reason, he did not mention his support for bankrupting the firearms industry through endless, meritless lawsuits. This is an odd oversight, considering he mentioned that, if he could be granted only one anti-gun accomplishment by God, this is wha...

Weekend Cooking: Tuesday Nights Mediterranean by Christopher Kimball

I was introduced to Christopher Kimball decades ago through the magazine Cooks Illustrated and America's Test Kitchen.

I've never seen the Milk Street shows, but I have cooked out of several of their cookbooks with good success.

Pants On Fire: Biden’s Bogus Gun Control Claim Up in Smoke

Joe Biden has been caught in another canard about guns. (Screen snip, Biden-Harris campaign.) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- When Joe Biden declared during his address to Congress and the country—as quoted by The Hill—that, “We need a ban on assault weapons and high capacity again. Don’t tell me it can’t be done. We did it before and it worked,” he evidently didn’t count on people listening who knew better. One of those people was the National Review’s David Harsanyi, and he quickly blew the whistl...

What's the "boyfriend loophole"?

In his big last night, Biden proposed legislation to "close the boyfriend loophole to keep guns out of the hands of abusers." I'd never noticed the phrase before, and I can't understand it from the context. He was talking about amending the Violence Against Women Act, and he added: The court order said this is an abuser, you can’t own a gun. It’s to close that loophole that exists. You know it is estimated that 50 women are shot and killed by an intimate partner every month in America, 50 a m...
