The public insurance option won't really work since it doesn't treat the core problem with the system. There is no fair market for goods. The market hasn't found the price for physician services as goods. Whether they are contractors, or employees, or whatever isn't the problem.

One of the things that I am not thrilled about with the Obama administration is how tightly the democrats are bound to the labor unions. One of the first questions I asked when I was a kid learning about the unions was, "Wouldn't that make fewer jobs and hurt entrepreneurs?" The answer to that question, from my teacher, was that in the early 20th century companies treated their workers awfully, and that there was little to no choice in the types of companies you could choose to work for and that someone needed to stand up to the big companies. I agreed because I was 13 or whatever.

At work, I always feel like Cassandra. I am warning of impending doom, but no one is listening to me. Am I crazy? Or am I visionary. It is hard to know.

This weekend, we went to see Fly Me To The Moon 3D. It was really cool. I was a little worried about my kids seeing it, since every kids movie seems to have name calling, scatological references, and violence. I can barely trust the "G" rating. But this movie was fantastic. The 3D effects were surprisingly realistic. My 1 1/2 year old son kept reaching out to touch the bugs who seemed to truly hover over the audience.
As for the science, it was quite realistic. It was clear that they wanted to truthfully depict the events of the moon launch. The lander was very real, the maneuvers the crew did to complete the journey to the moon were as they were. The dialog, etc... weren't fantastic for an adult, but if you could put yourself in the position of a 5 year old kid, it was wildly entertaining.
