The Magnificent Seven Posts you didn't find So Magnificent in 2017

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:

I walked its streets: The tragedy of Detroit July 12th

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!

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:

I walked its streets: The tragedy of Detroit July 12th

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.

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!
