Small Government and Ebola

by Jessica B. October 21st, 2014 Democratic Deliberations
Everyone is a bit on edge as Ebola reached Texas last month and has now shown to spread even within the "strong, capitalistic, best in the world medical system" that Texas has to offer. But there is much to learn from this experience, and I’m afraid that the only lesson that most will learn is to start prepping and invest in a hazsuit.

The CDCDemocratic-Deliberations messed up. The CDC made some HUGE errors. As it turns out, cutting spending, saving money and not increasing funding to an organization that is supposed to keep an eye on national health can have

Poli Talk

  • Our constitution grants here in Kentucky the constitutional right for privacy at the ballot box, for a secret ballot. --Alison Lundergan Grimes, asked if she voted for Obama

  • There’s…no sacred right to not announce how we vote. I voted for Mitt Romney, proudly. I voted for John McCain. --Mitch McConnell

  • We have to rethink the way we address Ebola infection control, because even a single infection is unacceptable. --Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

  • The lawlessness that is surfacing is disturbing. This is not what Hong Kong is famous for. --Regina Ip, Hong Kong legislator

Intolerance

by Eric M. Blake October 20th, 2014 Conservative Considerations
Conservative-Considerations Ask yourself this: Are you likely to see a Conservative activist group or celebrity or (Heaven forbid) administration going out of their way to advocate/sanction the censorship, directly or indirectly, of Leftists — on the grounds that they’re potentially dangerous?

Not since the 1950s. But what about the reverse? Consider all the smearing of Conservative activists, regarding "racism", "sexism", etc.— all the irrational rants that the only reason anyone could possibly be so critical of Obama is because they’re racist … or so critical of Hillary Clinton, because they’re waging a "War On Women". And more directly… consider all the

Wal-Mart, Trolls, and Wendy Davis

by Ronald A. Rowe October 16th, 2014 Winners & Losers
Winners-Losers Election Day is fast approaching.  The WINNERS are coasting through the final stretch while the LOSERS are getting desperate.  That means attack ads, nasty accusations, and the political machines kicking into full gear.  That means plenty of fodder for the WINNERS and LOSERS columns.  Politicians are overpromising, partisans are rationalizing, and trolls are trolling – all in an effort to ensure that their preferred party – of the only two allowed to be viable in our system – is more successful than the other in November.

Wal-Mart - ??? –

Independent Ideas: Ebola, P***hub, and Wells Fargo

by Jason Lightner October 17th, 2014 Independent Ideas
Independent-Ideas The hysteria surrounding the ebola infections across the globe is increasing week after week. As my wife and I are to be holding our wedding/vow renewal next year in the southern African country of Zimbabwe, I'm hearing about it more and more, and some of the remarks and postulations are rather absurd. This is why I thought it rather appropriate (and at the same time, surprising) to see FOX News' Shepard Smith giving viewers the straight dope on the disease (see below or click here).

This isn't the first time Shep Smith has been the voice of reason on an

Key Issues that Could Turn the Tide To Republicans

by T Akery October 14th, 2014 Republican Reflections
Republican-Reflections The November election can mean big changes in both the House and the Senate. This year, there are a lot of key races to watch to see which direction  Congress is going to go. Because it's not a Federal election year, turnout for these elections is generally low. But there are some issues that may bring more Republicans to the polls.

One of the fundamental key issues is job stats. No matter which way they spin it, jobs are way down. Most that are added are minimum wage jobs. With Christmas right around the corner, people are taking a fresh
