    This article just highlights the fact that Ebola was treated as a political issue right before the midterm elections rather than as a medical issue. Fortunately, just maybe folks in the medical profession, at least those who deal with patients and not paper, are not as corruptible as bureauocrats. At this point, anyone who has been paying attention these past years should know not to trust any information coming from the government.

    Dr. Frieden is a moron who is more concerned with managing public opinion than he is with managing Ebola. This is exactly how disasters start. Government tries to assure the people that everything is under control – until it isnt. Ebola can be stopped and it should start with a quarantine of West Africa. Send all the health pros you want to Africa and stem the disease, but in the meantime keep people from there out of here. This poor woman who I hope survives and gets married and has her family has managed to put others at risk. We do not need others putting more people at risk. It is almost like the government wants this to spread.

    Actually, that is a Protestant thing, but because there are thousands of Protestant denominations when it is reported, it is reported by each denominations and not as a Protestant problem. School teachers, however, take the prize with the highest child offender rates.

    This is the world we live in. No common sense. I have a similar story. We were going to a football game and had a light rain jacket in its nylon case. Rather than going thru the check bags line, I took the jacket out of the nylon bag and put it on and then put the nylon bag in the pocket. We were not allowed thru the no bag line by some kid who said he saw us put the nylon bag in the pocket. Rather than causing a scene I left with the intention of going to another entrance, but this kid FOLLOWED us and told the attendant we had a bag in our pocket. Such is llife in the USA today. No common sense.

    So this guy lied. Really? Who would have guessed that someone would want to get out of Africa and get into the US and have his med bills paid by the US taxpayer?

    President Obola has now managed to allow tens of thousands of kids from Latin America access to public schools without going through a health check. Now, no American citizen can enroll their kids without their health and vaccination records. President Obola has now also managed to allow a deadly virus into the United States. Soon clusters of the virus will begin to spark around the country. Community healthcare cannot handle the protocols necessary to contain it as we saw in Dallas where an infected man was released from the hospital. Local sanitation contractors will be unable to process Ebola infected waste. It will only take one local facility to mishandle infected waste or to mis diagnose an infected person to start this virus on a deadly journey through the US. Why? Why is the US government allowing this country to be infected with diseases we had conquered and new diseases for which cures are difficult to come by? Do the rich and powerful think they and their children will somehow be immune from all this? I am old enough to remember by grandparents talking about their immigration experiences and the fears of being sent back. Now, only US citizens are fearful.

    Wow, for minute after reading the headline I thought a Christian was defending Planned Parenthood. I am relieved to find out it was only an Episcopal priest.

    The first thing authorities always say when something like this happens is that there is no cause for concern. If we had this mindset back in the 40s I can hear Roosevelt now, ” There is no cause for concern, the Japanese are a people of peace,” rather than, “…a day that will live in infamy.”

    A real classy spokesperson for the pro cannabis movement. Just like the green marchers in NYC you have an arrogant, narcissistic entitled child in a grown ups body throwing a temper tantrum because she hasnt gotten her way just yet.

    My best friend from college worked a full career at the Labor Dept., retired and got a job with the State Dept. When I would visit, we would have a few drinks and he would become the guy I knew in college. Then he would tell me about all the corruption and arrogance he witnessed and how screwed up the government was. “You can’t cross these people,” he used to say. “They will make it their business to destroy you. And you’re paying for it, too.”

    I think I will give Biden a pass on this one because he is so stupid that he probably does not know the reference.

    So a million Muslims were killed during the war between Iraq and Iran. We meddled in this centuries old dispute, deposed Saddam, emboldened Iran, and the two got together and started killing American kids. We left and they started killing each other all over again. Come to think of it, this is what happened in Vietnam. Vietnam and China have been enemies for two thousand years. We go there and they get together and start killing our kids. We leave and now Vietnam wants us back to off set China, their two thousand year old enemy. It seems someone in this country believes American values can transcend blood feuds and that Buicks, 401ks, and blue jeans will stop barbarians from butchering their neighbors. Message to the utopians: Tribalism trumps everything. Ask Eric Holder, as a black man, his opinion.

    So what was the punishment for others who have done the same thing?

    I doubt if the whole nation will riot, particularly if there is a big game on when the verdict comes down.

    I thought people were supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. She would have a point if the guy was found guilty and not tossed out, but this is just mob justice and we have all seen the Ox Bow Incident.

    So he says he hasnt finished with the NRA. As a member, I was unaware he started with us. Membership is up, political donations are up, and Mr. Morgan is looking for work.

    Ummm, so “what those who were responsible for the acts were trying to convey is currently unclear,” Let me clear things up a bit: They hate you and will kill you when they have the chance.

    “Grant the university the use of his name.” Who can say that with a straight face?

    This is at least the second time something like this has happened. No child should try to operate a fully automatic weapon. They cannot handle the recoil and do not have the strength to hold the muzzle down. Anyone who has experience with weapons should know this.

    I do not understand why black Americans choose such questionable characters as heroes. I am not talking about Sharpton, but Brown and Martin. Both these men were deeply troubled and could be alive today if they would not have confronted and acted out on officer Wilson and Zimmerman. These two debase the memories of real civil rights heroes who were hunted down and murdered.
