    Russia invades Ukraine

    The eastern bloc nations were dominated by Russia from post World War 2 until the nineteen eighties. As a nation, in the USA, there was a very large consensus during those years that Russian oppression was an egregious political reality. It sounds strange to hear Tucker Carlson proclaim that...

    Russia invades Ukraine

    It would be great to continue to have a democracy in Ukraine as opposed to having Ukraine dominated by Russia. Supporting democracies has not been considered left wing ideology in the past.

    Official Game Thread: Oklahoma State vs. Baylor

    Gundy indicated earlier in this year that the data analysis had become too much data for him to make decisions moment by moment in the game. His statement about not needing data analysis to know that pinning a team inside their ten yard line with a punt and knowing 90 yards is a long way to go...

    Texas Judge rules ACA mandatory HIV drug Coverage violates Religious Freedom

    I am looking at this from a government/insurance/preventative care point of view. Whether the judge’s ruling will be upheld if challenged is a question that my thoughts are not really worth much.. My thought is that from a policy perspective (not religious) one preventative care measure being...

    Texas Judge rules ACA mandatory HIV drug Coverage violates Religious Freedom

    I certainly do not know all the Affordable Care Act rules or insurance laws. However, vaccinations, medications for elevated cholesterol and testing for surveillance for various illnesses all seem to fall in the category of preventative. I think vaccinations are paid for in insurance policies...
