Another day, another crack in Obamacare.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

 
Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

Available everywhere for $3.99 (before discount) at amazon, Barnes & Noble, all ebook vendors, or direct from the ebook publisher, ebookit. And if you buy it from ebookit you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

    I like this last line from the article :

    “It’s almost as if the politicians didn’t read the law before they passed it, and had no idea how its various provisions would cause car crashes as they tried to roll it out.”

    Someone thought this would work?
    Seriously.

    Are they insane?
    Whats the point of self insurance if it only covers a very limited amount of medical bills and the customer(patient) has no way to control it?

    Why would a liberal democrap even agree to something like this? Its just letting those rich corporations off and that’s what they were all fighting against.

    I wish each line of a bill kept it authors name attached to it.

    Obamacare: a law that was never fully read, is still being fully implemented, and will never be fully understood by design. This is not sound or reasoned governance; it is purposeful chaos, a wrecking ball to the constitutional relationship between state and each citizen.
