Interesting how not-Romney and not-Jeb---- do not have names. Aren't you going to stick your neck out on a few candidates, Mark Davis?

Ted is a rookie in the senate, and he has never held position as governor. He needs more executive experience. Besides, we need him in the senate. A strong shift of leadership is about to happen, and he will have opportunities to prove himself. We need him.
re: "The mayor then emphasized that casual contact cannot lead to acquiring the disease, only direct contact with the patient’s bodily fluids." The sweat on a bowling ball, the wet cough on a subway, wet bathroom surfaces...ebola has essentially arrived to stay at the Big Apple.
re: " The White House is already laying the groundwork for damage control" = every distraction imaginable: ebola, Canada, ...but even some of his typical distractions, e.g. the war on women, is backfiring.

re: "Your comment about "we were fighting against the Bank of England" ignores the fact that the Bank of England was being PROPPED UP by His Majesty's Government, and was part of a CRONY CAPITALIST system of the kind that today's Democrats - particularly Barack Obama - heartily approve of." What do you think our large banks are today, when we have a system which ushers the CEOs of these banks in and out of the FED? I am not a Nanny-Stater. I am an original tea partier, and trust me, we have no loyalty to banking conglomerates.

Though I agree with much of what you have said, Mr. Sowell, I do urge caution at the idea that banks do not engage in "predatory" lending, or that such lending is not something we need to be concerned about As conservatives, we have no interest in defending large banking conglomerates, who have loyalty to no one country, who gamble with taxpayer money, sticking investors and homeowners and the entire economy with the losses, while showering exorbitant bonuses on one another. Google: International Monetary Fund Large banking conglomerates are as corrupt as big governmental agencies. We are kidding ourselves to equate our modern banking enterprises with good old-fashioned honest capitalism. With the revolving door of the fed heads in and out of positions of power at the banks, and at our highest institutions of learning ---no patriot would be wise to say that allowing the foxes to guard the henhouse is of no concern to our freedoms. "Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. Thomas Jefferson Read more at http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/t/thomas_jefferson.html#XKJQhFuTqWPwYy6u.99 "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." Thomas Jefferson, (Attributed) Remember: the revolutionary war was as much a war against the Bank of England as it was against George III.
I did not know that "fundamentally transforming America" meant that we need to all be in coffins.
Good points all, Giles. As are all fascist gays, though, this woman would turn to you and accuse you of hate speech and there would be no prison dark enough for you. That said, what about you other people who self-identify as gay, who are NOT fascists? Where are your voices decrying this woman's power grab? [crickets, crickets] Sigh.
Good article, delving into the complexities of the self-determined individuals trying to make a go in an economically challenging environment. Similar arguments can be made for the small farmer, the small bank, the small town who is doing just fine governing itself without questionable federal impositions. My own philosophy is that capitalism is good; however extra large entities are susceptible to corruption: big banks (especially the Big Four: BofA, WF, JPCh, and GS), big agra (read: Monsanto), big grain, big energy. The bigger the entity, the more tied to the government it is. The more tied to government, the thinner the membranes are that separate that corporate conglomerate from the government itself. Deregulation is off the charts, and the government in turn, feeds the beast. Fascism is when corporations = government, or the state. Large government entities provide the same problem. Obamacare, Solyndra, the "Global War on Climate Change" will all create government agencies which will need taxpayer monies to "function" ---and most of them will demand millions of taxpayer dollars that will never go to their supposed philanthropic destinies.
Bob and Tom live around the corner from you. They work and shop like you do, have a garden and a dog. They bake cookies for the neighbors and helped a little girl find her lost cat. What Bob and Tom are not telling you is that it is not Bob and Tom. It is statistically likely to be Bob and Tom, and Chris, Mike, Fred, and Pete. And Jake every other week-end. Bob and Tom have an open relationship. A very, very, open relationship. Much wider statistically than the comparable heterosexual relationship (married or unmarried) across the street. We know this because of studies the gay community has done on themselves. This is not a marriage. It is a bath house. And Bob and Tom put in their application at the adoption agency last week. UP NEXT: Look, Heterosexual America: Open Relationships are GOOD! You should try it. Just because I have an open marriage does not make it less legally valid than yours. Just sayin'. SSM, Heinous and Disingenous though it is, is not the only destruction. Our First Amendment rights are being shredded. Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom to Organize Politically. The a-religious in the country should worry. If you think this is only about people of faith, wake up. This is about YOU and YOUR FREEDOMS.
