Call in number: 1-800-336-2225
My guest, Ralph F. Weber CLU is an expert on health insurance. He is an entrepreneur with innovative ideas for how to make health coverage more affordable, efficient and keep it dynamic and cutting edge. We'll discuss the myths and fallacies of Universal Health Care, and of the Health Reform Plan the current administration is attempting to ram through, no matter what, as soon as possible. Why the hurry? If the Senate and House leaders get their way how will this impact you?
Discover the Marketplace for Medicine, where the best ideas, services and practices are given place to rise to the top and meet the real time demands of the patient/consumer. Can we have solid and exceptional health care for the American People based on free market principles? Is that possible? Is it moral and ethical?
Perhaps the most serious unknown cost of federal health care oversight is the loss of what we used to call the American Spirit. This is the idea that individuals are free to pursue their own destinies, with government kept as far-removed from daily lives as possible. The American Spirit celebrates life, rather than regulates it. The American Spirit is a spirit of individualism and even nonconformance, not communalism and compliance-- Dave Racer

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko. What does this map mean? How to use this map View Original Map and Database


Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
