In case you didn’t hear, former half-term Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown decided to cross state lines and run for the Senate in nearby New Hampshire. Here’s his campaign strategy:
Brown will embark Friday on what his campaign has dubbed the “Obamacare Isn’t Working” tour a day after he officially launched his campaign with an address emphasizing his opposition to the law and Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s support for it.
Brown called Shaheen “the deciding vote” for Obamacare. His most memorable line of the night was a dig at the law. “Obamacare forces us to make a choice, live free or log on—and here in New Hampshire, we choose freedom,” Brown said in a play on the Granite State’s official motto.

So, what happens if you share your medical bills with other people who don’t drink, don’t smoke, and are big on Jesus? Apparently, according to Fox News, you save money on your medical bills:
"It works just like insurance. I have an insurance card. I show it just like anyone else would. I have a deductible. I have a monthly premium that I pay," explained Eileen Wade, who joined the health care sharing ministry, Medi-Share, in 2011.
The nation’s three largest ministries boast more than 242,000 members, spanning all 50 states, who agree to live so-called biblical lifestyles — meaning regular church attendance; no drugs, tobacco, or sex outside of marriage; and limited alcohol consumption.
This kind of healthier lifestyle helps keep monthly premiums lower than that of other health insurers for most members.
"There’s definitely an economic benefit, a windfall if you would, by living healthier lives," said Medi-Share’s CEO, Tony Meggs.
So basically the way to cheap insurance—and enlightenment—is through the Bible. Ken Ham was right all along.

Rand Paul’s plagiarism charges follow him to court cases apparently, as former Reagan administration lawyer Bruce Fein is claiming that Paul replaced his name on the lawsuit with Cuccinelli’s. Sample text:
Fein wrote: “On information and belief, Defendants’ Mass Associational Tracking Program since its commencement in May 2006 has not stopped or been instrumental in stopping even one imminent international terrorist attack or has otherwise assisted Defendants in achieving any time-sensitive objective.”
Cuccinelli’s version: “Upon information and belief, since its commencement in May 2006, Defendants’ Mass Associational Tracking Program has not stopped or been instrumental in stopping even one imminent international terrorist attack or otherwise assisted Defendants in achieving any time-sensitive objective.”
