There were those who voiced outrage over the government’s response to the Hurricane Katrina/New Orleans disaster, using it to condemn the Republican administration. Now there are those who voice outrage over the government response to the Ebola threat blaming the Democratic administration. Perhaps we would be better served if we recognize a government that tries to do everything for everybody will do nothing well. Regardless of who is in charge?
When a group of people destroy businesses in the name of protest they shouldn’t be surprised when the business owners decide to move away and leave them with nothing but the destruction they wrought upon themselves.
Does threating large-scale protest if a jury does not find someone guilty really inspire confidence in our judicial system?
Why do we make newsreaders celebrities? What special talent do we think they have, beyond reading a teleprompter?
If a medical doctor is unwilling to appropriately quarantine himself during this “self-monitoring” period why would we believe an average citizen will?
Voter ID and Voter Fraud – both have their proponents and opponents. Some claim the potential for large-scale fraud is so small voter ID is not required, and that having an ID disenfranchises those who are unable to get one. We never hear about the percentages of those who would be disenfranchised. How many potential voters are we talking about? Is it 10, 10,000, 100,000 or more? The Chicago political machine has a long history of supporting voter fraud, so they should be able to address the voter ID rules in the same way. In fact, they are moving to the next level where regardless of which candidate you select on the machine the Democrats get your vote. Remember -- in Chicago death is no reason to stop voting.
