Esurance Is Watching You . . Or Soon Will Be

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo just signed off on a “plan” (you know there’s trouble brewing whenever a control freak politician announces he has a “plan”) touted as a way to “discourage” teen drivers from texting while driving but which will inevitably lead to adults being under the constant (and ever-more-profitable) thumb of the insurance mafia.…

White House Orders Insurance Companies Not to Criticize Obamacare

Executives fear “retribution” if they speak out Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com October 30, 2013 The White House is ordering insurance companies not to criticize Obamacare and threatening “retribution” against executives who speak out, according to CNN reporter Drew Griffin.

Tactical Manual: When – and How – To Run

squeal 1

I wrote a couple week back (see here) about how increasingly Draconian punishments for relatively minor – and purely statutory (i.e., involving no harm to others) traffic offenses – for example, a “reckless driving” cite for nothing more than traveling over 80 MPH, or more than 20 MPH faster than any speed limit – are…

Mandatory Gun Insurance

It took “conservative” Republicans to trot out mandatory and market-based health insurance in the same mouthful. Don’t ever forget to thank them for this. Well, it’s time for the next step: Mandatory gun insurance -  also “market based” and “incentivized,” of course.

I wish more people would stop to think about what making any product mandatory will necessarily do its cost – as well as to the “service” provided. If you can’t say no, there’s little, if any, incentive for the manufacturer/provider to keep costs in line, or please its “customers” – a term that’s sickeningly inappropriate…

We’re “Covered” – But We’re Broke….

Insurance – over-insurance, excessive insurance, really – is arguably one of the reasons why so many people are having trouble making ends meet. When you add up homeowner’s insurance, health insurance, car insurance, life insurance – that’s five types of insurance – the total tab can easily be more than $10,000 a year. The average…

The Insurance Geldscheisser

Geld JPEG

Insurance is a con. Worse than Social Security, even – because you pay in and (normally) never get anything back. Consider: You pay say $800 a year to insure your car. Over a ten year period that comes to $8,000. Gone. Out the window. You’ll never see it again. Think about this. Most people don’t…

Seasonal Coverage? Nah… That’d Be Reasonable!

Seasonal riding is a fact of life for many motorcyclists. Come fall – and cold weather – many riders hang up their leathers and park their bikes for the duration. It might be three or even four months before it’s time to throw a leg over again. But we’re required to carry year-round insurance, regardless…
