No, Virginia, Nothing is Really Risk Free - American Magazine, by Alex J. Pollock Posted By: eagleblurst- Mon, 08 59 2013 01:59:28 GMT The financial world confronts us with ineluctable uncertainty and risk.

Obamacare: And Then a Miracle Happens - American Thinker, by Howard Hyde Posted By: magnante- Mon, 08 41 2013 02:41:38 GMT So the administration has delayed implementation of the employer mandate for one year in what must be a desperate move to avoid an immediate train wreck, a tacit acknowledgment that the mandate is unworkable, or a shrewd and/or cynical political move to get safely past the 2014 election cycle, depending on which theory you find most plausible.
