Is Biden Presidential Material?
Was he ever?

July 11, 2024  •  Inside Sources

As a longtime baseball fan and an observer of politics, I often hark back to Yogi Berra's memorable quip, "It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future." However, I think I nailed it in an April 2021 article in Human Events:

One thing is for certain; we can expect to see continuing validation from President Biden of the old quip, 'How can you tell when a politician is lying? His lips are moving.' But in the same way that you can't take your eyes off a train wreck in progress, it will be fascinating to see whether the salient feature of Biden's presidency will be his mendacity or his dementia — or some incendiary admixture of the two.

Viewpoint: Rising drug prices and shortages now fueled in part by the very reform mechanism intended to curtail them
We need an investigation by an independent expert government commission to recommend PBM and other reforms

July 9, 2024  •  Genetic Literacy Project

It's an old story: The American health system is failing to deliver in part because of ever-rising drug prices. According to a Department of Health and Human Services survey, Americans pay two to three times more for drugs than people in many other countries.

'Guns Versus Butter' Is Passé; Now It's 'Guns Versus Virtue'
We should discontinue subsidies for renewables and EVs and reallocate the funds more strategically

July 9, 2024  •  American Council on Science & Health

Basic economics courses often refer to the tradeoff between "guns or butter," referring to the tension between spending on defense versus domestic programs. There is no question that the U.S. has, in recent years, vastly expanded its welfare state, particularly under cover of the pandemic. Programs now completely out of date are kept on life support because nobody likes losing "goodies." America's national debt has soared and now exceeds $43 trillion for the first time in history.

Will Artificial Intelligence Revolutionize Mental Health Care?
AI applications range from simple triage to science fiction-like diagnostics

July 9, 2024  •  Orange County Register

Psychiatry was one of my early rotations as a third-year medical student just beginning clinical training. After years of exposure to science in the classroom and laboratories, its imprecision was unsettling. The primary way to evaluate someone's mental health was through self-reporting in response to direct questions like, "In the past two weeks, how often have you felt little interest or pleasure in doing activities that normally would be pleasurable?" or "Do you sometimes hear voices that no one else hears?"

COVID Censorship? NO! You Can't Sue the Biden Administration for Social Media Censorship
The Supreme Court found no proof of censorship: "Judges are not like pigs, hunting for truffles buried in the record."

July 5, 2024  •  American Council on Science & Health

Free Speech purists were likely surprised and greatly disappointed by last week's 6-3 Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruling in Murthy v. Missouri. Relying on the staunchly conservative court to give them cover, the plaintiffs miscast government advice to social media (SM) platforms about false and dangerous COVID-19 "health" messages as illegitimate interference, coercion, and – horrors! –censorship! The majority rejected that argument outright.
