Not that it's exactly her fault; but I blame Lena Dunham for part of my son's decision to change his name to Lena.
While I appaud the concept of rescue and adoption instead of abortion or infanticide (I was raised Catholic and training and attitudes persist); there are long term consequences to society and humanity. Consider the common cuckoo or the cowbird, and the long term effect on their hosts.
No "war" without an explict declaration of war by Congress. And Barack Obama couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag made from toilet paper.
Actually, it's not a novel idea. It's no different from what we would have done to any other enemy deliberately bringing a biohazard, or biological warfare agent, into this country. A German, Japanese, or Italian bringing anthrax into the U.S. during WWII would have been either shot duing the attempt, or quietly tried, convicted, and executed. I suggest that's exactly what we should start doing again to any illegal who brings an infectious disease into this country, and to every politician who allowed them to do so.
"When I was young there was no measles vaccine. We all got it, and almost all of us survived," "almost all of us survived" A lot more didn't than are ever injured from vaccination.
Obama is a lying monster, an antichrist. For one thing, Americans had nothing to do with the Crusades or the Inquisition. For another, Muslims were just as bloody handed during the Crusades as the Christians were. As for Jim Crow, I didn't make those laws, but I was old enough to help get rid of them; so don't be laying that sin at my feet Mr Liar-in-Chief.
The vaccines are not without risk. But the risks of getting one of those diseases, and the risk of injury or death from them far outweigh the dangers of the vaccines themselves. That doesn't apply to some experiemental vaccines, such as the anthrax one, that military members were subjected to.

Loretta Lynch doesn't know jack about civil forfeiture. Loretta Lynch doesn't know jack about the U.S. Constitution. Loretta Lynch doesn't know jack about law enforcement. Anyone who votes for her confirmation ought to be tarred, feathered, stoned and driven out of office for complete and criminal incompetency
Actually, I don't miss the days when intelligence agencies could do what they wanted under cover. That's the very recipe for silo thinking that wastes government resources due to duplication of effort, and misses important clues because all the pieces are scattered throughout a myriad of government offices. The bar for "wrongdoing" has been lowered? What? Like saying that suspects shouldn't renditioned, held in secret for indefinite periods of time, and tortured? That suspects who are found to be not guilty, the wrong people, or have no knowledge of what's being sought should not be compensated for their mistreatment, or at the very least, receive an official apology? Or intelligence agencies that are running Assasinations Incorporated programs, instead of just gathering information? Snowden did the right thing. What's ironic is that he had to seek protection from one of the worse totalitarian countries with one of the worse secret police records in the world. He'll continue to receive those protections until his political worth is exhausted, at which point the Russians will dump him back into the shark tank. Don't get me wrong. There is a need for secret intelligence agenies. But they absolutely must have oversight able to delve into evey part of every operation. AND more importantly, those overseers must be absolutely trustworthy, must have absolute power to punish infractions by those secret intelligence agencies, and provide at least summary reports periodically on their operations. Unfortunately, far too many of those overseers are political appointees, bureaucratic hacks, or rubber stamps drawing a taxpayer paycheck. They aren't trustworthy. Which is half the problem facing our use of secret services. After all, who will watch the watchmen?

Tragic School Stories

"The best that politicians can do is to give parents and children who are serious about education a mechanism to opt out of rotten schools." That mechanism requires allowing them to divert school tax money from the public school district to the schools of their choice. Otherwise, they won't be able to afford to send their children to better schools, even if they have a choice to do so. And I have no problem with short-changing a public school that produces an inferior product of uneducated children.

Anti-Vaccine Fanatics Kill

Okay, so three people you know were allegedly permanently harmed by vaccination. How many people do you know who have been vaccinated, and what percentage were harmed by them? You probably know more people killed in automobile accidents. The military vaccinates all their members, and except for the experiemental anthrax vaccine, have NEVER seen or heard of permanent harm caused by them. Granted, those are adults and not children; but spacing the vaccinations out, and not administering multivalents, ought to reduce the hazard of vaccination to far less than the risk of catching those diseases.
