Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Here's another one guaranteed to make liberal heads explode. Call it Irish socialized medicine #fail. Because when you've got a rare incurable disease, the U.S. is the only place you'll get treatment. At least until Obamacare fully kicks in.
Ryan McCormack suffers from adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), the genetic disorder profiled in the 1992 movie "Lorenzo's Oil." His prognosis is not good, but there's a chance that a bone marrow transplant coupled with gene therapy could arrest the disease.
Can Ryan get this life-saving treatment from the fully socialist and ostensibly "free" Irish NHS?
It costs €3 million. What do you think?
So he's traveling to Minnesota, and relying on the charity of strangers.
Hmm, what is it that Minnesota doesn't have, at least not yet?
Did you say "socialized medicine"? You win!
Amazingly when you take the bureaucrats out of the loop and put the free market into play you find that treatments for rare diseases are available. No, they're not "free". But then, neither is Obamacare. Oh sure, it's "free" to you. If you're named Sandra Fluke or you've got a disease the bureaucrats have decided is worth treating. But if your ailment isn't on their list? Come to America, while you still can.
Godspeed Ryan. I pray your treatments are successful. And that they're completed
Donald Berwick and his
IPAB (please don't call it a "Death Panel"!) finish mucking up the
greatest health care system ever designed.
