Well we’ve done our top posts of last year, and my Lemon’s of last year, now I’m going to spread the wealth and remind you of some posts by my magnificent seven writers that for some reason didn’t draw Magnificent numbers
Some great posts by the Magnificent Seven that Deserve a 2nd Look too
I wasn’t the only person who wrote some good post’s that you didn’t bother to check out
There was this from Chris Harper On Medicare
Medicare: An Invasion of Privacy July 25th
The Annual Wellness Visit, a provision of Obamacare, is one of the most significant invasions of personal privacy you’ve probably never heard of.
There are some surprises in this post but you can’t get those surprises unless you actually read it.
There was this spectacular example of shoe leather reporting in Detroit by John Ruberry:
Outside of the world’s largest abandoned factory, the Packard plant, a man pulled up in his old Pontiac Grand Am and told me, “I hope you’re a publicist. Because the world needs to know how bad it is in Detroit beyond Packard. All the schools in this neighborhood are closed.”
This post was awesome, How this post didn’t draw a ton is beyond me.
This Essay on Reagan by JD Rucker was pretty solid (Feb 12th)
Embracing Reagan’s notion of small-government Federalism
Today, we need Reagan’s concepts of Federalism even more than we did in the 80s. Things have gotten worse. DC is a swamp, and while President Donald Trump is trying to drain it as quickly as possible, he can’t get it all done. In fact, his focus on reducing bureaucracy is righteous but is only one small part of the overall formula.
Too bad so few bothered to read it
Pat Austin pieces on the removal of Confederate Monuments had some oomph with one exception
Report from Louisiana: The Cost of Removing History (June 12th)
I feel certain at some point the Democrats are going to attempt to put Landrieu’s name out there for the next presidential election and it’s incumbent on all of us to know what you’re getting with that.
Meanwhile, New Orleans continues with daily shootings and murders, potholes go unfixed, the city’s infrastructure declines, tourism declines and problems amass. The city is more racially divided than ever – a city that was once known for its acceptance of diversity and tolerance.
I see nothing in this post that was any less excellent than all the others that drew fine, maybe people were just monumented out.
Finally the lack of interest from this Fausta Post on DACA & Hurricanes was a tad of a shock:
Much ado about DACA, but my mind is elsewhere (Sept 9th)
Immigration is a very important issue, but my mind is on other things. I bought a house and have spent the last month unpacking (less than 10 boxes to go!) in Central Florida. Now Irma‘s turning up in the map:
It was a good pair of topics but for some reason nobody wanted to read them.
Well that ends our three posts on 2017, I hope you enjoyed the look back, now it’s on to today!
