BHO helps fund and supply ISIL, so nothing to worry about. All we need to do is just ask him to be sure to tell them not to use any of those WMDs against anybody.

Help for Middle East Christians

There are several other websites that are carrying this column by Cal Thomas, and in each of them, where it is announced in his column, "The Cradle of Christianity Fund" is itself a hyperlink to the donation site itself. But not here at TownHall.com. With all of it's high-tech--all it's computer memory draining advertizements, all it's distracting bells and whistles, alas there is not the hyperlink, leaving the reader to wonder where the donation website is. It appears to be here: http://globalengage.org/support-ccf Although there also are some pretender websites also out there. So far there were practically no comments on the article here on TH all day. People really do suffer from apathy on this site. I wonder, though, whether some Iraqi and Syrian oil revenues, or aid direct from America, will be used to help these refugees.

Let American Capitalism Cure Ebola

Setting the cost aside, as drug therapies go, 85 days on a pill and then that is the complete end of a serious condition such as Hepatitus C, sounds pretty good. Generally I'd expect the goal of the drug companies to be to selling drugs that the consumer will be obligated to take for life, but, of course, $1,000 a day for that long just is not a likely possibility anyway, so hence the 85 days, perhaps. But for the lower priced lifelong drug dependents, along the way they'd develop complications that will require the use of other drugs the company makes. And on the exact days the company loses it's patent rights on each of it's different drugs, it will release a newly patented drug that is basically the same as the older drug, just "better". Medicine really is nothin but business, usually. Feeling queezy today? How about a CT scan, colonoscopy, EKG, and a full panel of blood tests? What's that? A little shadow by the tedurus monotritendinitus? Better give that an MRI to be safe. Now best excise it and then take these pills for the next year and stay monitored. Have you had your annual radiololigical cancer screen? Great. See you next month.

The Ebola Government

Chip. Wrote: Oct 28, 2014 2:49 AM
This column makes a good point by asserting part of the concern over Ebola is "because of the general distrust the administration has CULTIVATED for years in government’s ability" to handle any crisis. After all, given how literally sickening it is to constantly watch BHO and many of his supporters speak, listening to their disregard to the people and ideals of this country, and seemingly enjoying it, importing diseases first from Central American illegal invaders, and then from West Africa, would only seem part of the broader agenda. The only thing that puzzles me is how one can say the BHO-run government "cultivated" a mistrust in competent government operations, when it would really seem the correct wording would be to say that was cultivated is an expectation that this government is carrying out an evil agenda against everything it's own country stands for. My guess is that too often, as here, spelling out the obvious is only left for the reader, as calling a spade a spade in the plainest possible words is not today's vogue.

Should We Strip Terrorists of Citizenship?

Chip. Wrote: Oct 24, 2014 12:09 AM
I merely looked at this title and, know Chapman would never say anything to detract from the cause of any terrorists, knew immediately he would be advocating for the terrorists to keep their citizenship. And so it is. And Chapman would actually have us all think that any naturalized US citizen, so long as he duly complied with the requirement to make the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America, there would be no consequence with regards to his citizenship thereby obtained, if he broke his oath. Any naturalized citizen being found guilty of treason should be immediately stripped of his citizenship. And, for that matter, any citizen who is guilty of treason should be declared persona non grata, have no citizenship in any country, and this applies most to left wing radicals and right wing corporatists who no more deserve a voice among the people than a pile of pathogenic germs.

A 1970s Halloween

On NY's eave in the 70s, when I was a little kid, probably much before your time, when the older kids you learned to skillfully avoid were just little brats about my age, I recall a group of much older girls, at least a year into their teens, walking down our street at midnight, mirthfully singing "America".

Actually Marlene, after the basic training, each recruit immediately goes on to what is called "specialty training", where they learn the specific knowledge to the specific role they have chosen or have been assigned to, --such as, in the Army, infantry, paramedic, combat engineer, just for starters. The training for each of these specialties is usually at least as long as the basic training, but in some cases it can be much longer, such as in the training for medics.

Why Republicans Don't Get It

Chip. Wrote: Oct 22, 2014 11:06 AM
It may be easier to get your point across by just sending messages to their offices and waiting for a reply. They're actually good at that and listen to most emails and messages from their constituents, because that is how they learn what the issues are. Yes, there is a lot of pure ignorance and stupidity out there and it needs correcting, and not necessarily brainstorming. Let me ask you a question, about how you might defend a Republican politician whom you felt was at least better than any other politician in a race over issues you cared about. What would you say in response to, say, a Democratic Hispanic politician's accusation that a Republican politician's "heart is not Hispanic"? Would you reflexively try to look for ways to show the better politician was, in fact, the man with a better interests towards Latinos, or would you use the Democratic politician's words as proof that he has no business representing Americans as a whole, especially white Americans.
