After a lovely long weekend with family, we’re getting in the car today and heading home. If things go well, the drive should take about seven hours. If we get stuck in holiday traffic (as happened when we drove down), we’re looking at nine hours on the road.
I might be able to blog tonight, but there’s no possibility of doing so today. Consider this, then, your Sunday open thread.
Since my links are getting wiped out when I post on iPad, I can’t link to Michael Barone’s contention that ObamaCare, which goes fully into effect in January, will be the undoing of the Democrat party. The 50-employee cutoff for businesses (if you have 50 or more full-time employees you must provide comprehensive insurance of a type mandated by Congress) will lead to firings and to the transformation of full-time into part-time jobs.
Barone thinks the massive job loss will trigger a Republican wave vote in 2014. I say that’s true only if Americans who have been indoctrinated by 40 years of statist education and entertainment, have sufficient residual intelligence to be smarter than the French. The French, as you recall, faced economic disaster by going full socialist.
