Good Points

***As sad as it is, Jay Nordlinger makes some great points in his latest piece at National Review Online. It gives me no pleasure to agree with 90% of what he says. I have not left the Republican party, but I am certainly disappointed in it.

A few excerpts:

In my view, Trump is grossly unfit to be president, in both mind and character — especially the latter. Even if I agreed with him on the issues — even if I thought his worldview sound — I would balk at supporting him, owing to the issue of character. But let me spend a second on the issues. His tendency is toward big government. He says no to a reform of entitlements. He says no to free trade. He threatens to withdraw from NATO. He likes Obama’s unilateral opening to Cuba. He sings the praises of Planned Parenthood. And so on. What he calls for, mainly, is strength, plus “winning.” This is not the mentality of a constitutional conservative or a liberal democrat. Then, overshadowing everything, there is the issue of character. Trump mocks the handicapped — physically mocks them — for the enjoyment of his audience. He insults women on the basis of their looks. He brags of the women he has bedded, including “seemingly very happily married” ones. He mocks the religions of others. (Distinctly un-American.) He implied that Ted Cruz’s father had a link to the Kennedy assassination. And on and on.

  It really does make me sick that he is the Republican nominee. 


***Electronic Medical Records has been a flop so far. I work for a lot of doctors offices, and I have yet to hear one positive word about it. It's all about documentation, not patient care. This is a long article, but worth the read.
