1. “Why Is Nobody Listening to Jimmy Carter’s Searing Critique of America?

If there is a more extreme example of a prominent politician breaking with his fellow elites I don’t know what it is. But he is saying things most people don’t want to hear, so a past president accusing other presidents of violating the law and trampling on human rights is all but ignored. ”

2. “Low Life Expectancy tracks with Opposition to Obamacare

About a fourth of South Carolinians lack health care insurance, and the local elite is committed to keeping it that way.

With the exception of Utah, there is a pretty strong overlap between lower life expectancy and deep hostility to the Affordable Care Act. Those who need it most are most opposed to it.

Know what that is called? Fatal stupidity.”
