"It's becoming increasingly clear this is just another platform for Obama to demonstrate that we are citizens of the world. The entire Ebola issue is being discussed -- by our government, not the United Nations -- as if Liberians are indistinguishable from Americans, and U.S. taxpayers should be willing to pay whatever it takes to save them." A reasonable argument can be made that Americans have a deep historical tie to the nation of Liberia and have a vested national and moral interest in providing whatever we can to help them overcome this disease. Liberia is after all a nation founded by freed American slaves. But that is a question of spending. Not insane and asinine travel policies. Providing what material, funding and medical knowledge help we can is a completely separate and isolated issue from allowing free travel between disease ravaged Liberia and the US. We can do both. Put travel restrictions in place and still provide the best material aid possible.
I'm confused? How exactly is this woman the "Oregon First Lady" do we now simply award the official title and perks to whomever happens to be having sex with a sitting governor or President? I always thought that there was a bit more to it than that?
So a normal sane person would assume that all air transport routes between west africa and north / south America have been severed for the moment? Or are we not supposed to ask that question? again?

Not true. It forbids Federal Police in the States. The Feds can police all they want in Puerto Rico, Washington DC and Guam. I understand Guam is quite nice this time of year. They should try for a posting there.

Works for me. I mean think about it. This is the Federal ATF. A Federal Law enforcement agency dedicated to policing two activities specifically enumerated as permited under the constitution, and a third activity that has been one of this nations largest cash crops since its founding. and the 4th unsaid activity regulating explosives was handled for the better part of a century well, quietly and efficiently with no incidents by the DOT. It was only conscripted by the ATF when people started asking questions about what purpose the ATF actually served.
On a similar note, you might want to look into Video Game Magazines and Websites. Do a Google search re #GAMERGATE and see just how broadly the most radical of the Feminists have enroached into that area. And why actual Video Gamers have risen up in open revolt that has been boiling across the internet for three weeks now.
So a Governor used the proper legal and constitutional powers of his office via his Veto power to preasure or encourage the removal of an obviously and clearly out of control and corrupt DA from the position of chief investigator of government corruption... and this is supposedly a crime? really? This doesn't strike anyone as true and proper good governance?He did not have the legal authority to fire so instead he used his incontrovertibly legal authority to veto. I may be missing something here but any accusations of him using the "threat" of veto to influence an action evaporated when he did in fact use his veto power to deny funding to the corruptly led department.

Mend, Don’t End, the VA

And remind me why upon discharge from active duty our Veterans are not simply handed an insurance card that they can take anywhere they wish for life? Why this antiquated edifice to Soviet Medicine that we must subject them to. I challenge the author, go read your second paragraph and tell me how exactly we are not back at that point today? Give them a Medicare part V. Tear down or sell off the dinosaurs so they can provide health services to everyone and the Veterans can get the care they need at places of their choosing close to their homes. We owe them nothing less.

US sends food, water, other aid to Iraq

Have we started attaching parachutes to the food and water we are dropping on them from 15,000 feet? (I really wish I was joking about this. "We're from the US Government! We're here to help!")
Has this dude taken a look at the wholesale ethnic and religious slaughter going on over in Iraq lately? Yet discussions of topsoil and native vs non native species of rose bushes is of deep societal concern? Me thinks the professor has been indulging in a few too many Weeds.
