FEE: How the Market Is Already Repealing Obamacare

There’s a common misconception that if you’re opposed to government services, programs and/or departments, then you’re opposed to building roads, education, people getting affordable health care and even people taking care of the sick and elderly. These misconceptions are becoming more apparent as the free market offers solutions and options using innovation and technology, as the government continues to fall in on itself.

Six months into the pregnancy, we received a letter explaining that due to the changes in the law, our policy would no longer cover maternity services. 

I continue to be amazed at the ingenuity of people and individuals working toward solutions in the marketplace, in spite of government. Over time government has assumed more and more control over medical decisions that individuals make everyday.  Continue reading “FEE: How the Market Is Already Repealing Obamacare”

Marriage and Economic Well Being: The Economy of the Family Rises or Falls with Marriage

Patrick F. Fagan, Andrew J. Kidd and Henry Potrykus

Executive Summary

The economic well-being of the United States is strongly related to marriage, which is a choice about how we channel our sexuality. The implications of sexual choices are apparent when comparing family structures across basic economic measures such as employment, income, net worth, poverty, receipt of welfare, and child economic well-being. In all of these the stable, intact married family outperforms other sexual partnering structures; hence the economy rises with the former and encounters more difficulties and inefficiencies as it diverges from it.

That was his answer to Tom Strobhar, founder of the … Continue reading Starbucks CEO: “If You Support Traditional Marriage, There’s the Door…”

Yet a business may reflect the values of the principal owners and managers. It is these values that determine whether or not a business is labeled Christian or non-Christian. We are told in James 1:22 to be “doers” of the Word. A … Continue reading What is a Christian Business?
