ONE OF THE most interesting parts of amateur radio is exchanging ideas that go far beyond mere technical discussions. And there’s no better place to do that than amateur radio’s 41-year institution, the Liberty Net.

Here’s my summary of and commentary on some of the ideas brought forward on the net this time:
• The optimistic predictions did not come true — the enrollments in the technically “mandatory” Obamacare program in Hawaii have not reached the self-sustaining level, with only 37,000 enrollments. (18 minutes)
• Another thing to remember if you intend to obey the “law,” and actually sign up for the public/private monstrosity called Obamacare: You will not under any circumstances be able to obtain any innovative or newly-developed treatments, no matter how well-proven and effective they may be, and no matter how much you need them — even to save your life.
