Measles, Vaccines and Autism

Vaccinations cause autism - Global warming - measles brought in by diseased Mexicans. All myths.
From a legal perspective, you are absolutely right. The defence should make the state prove its case. That's the basis of our system, and a good one at that. However, Hillary's run for President is political. She can't have it both ways. She made up the bit about the expert ready to come down to prevent a miscarriage or justice. Was she being a good advocate or deceiving the court? In the end, Hillary is all about herself and the 'win.' Vote for her if that is what you want in a President.

People don't put their children in private schools because they are racist. They do it because they are smart.

One of my first disagreements with the good Dr! These activities are not the relatively innocent display of the 'bizarre', but rather 'scurilous.' We do ourselves a disservice to consider the left like some eccentric uncle.

Rubbish! Do you suggest these parents weren't involved before their children were placed in a charter school? If parental involvement were the only criterion, there would be no need for charter schools as their children would already be succeeding.

Texas is a "Right to Work" state. You don't have to be a member of the teachers union to teach. The largest union in Harris County (Houston Independent School District) is the teachers union under Gayle Fallon. Go figure!

I would love to agree with Dr. Sowell. He really isn't wrong! But the Republican Party (which we elected, by the way) has ruined its reputation with it conservative base. It's very hard to give them the benefit of the doubt.

It wasn't a custom, the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 is the controlling law which Reid ignores.

Republicans to the Rescue?

No problem with you assessment of handouts. I don't find any Constitutional argument for them regardless of immigration status. Just to pick a nit, half our workforce pays no income tax. The only benefit is if the illegal is working on the cash economy and pays no FICA. That option is available (and used) by legals, as well.

And what was your take on the problem in 1986? Or in 2000? If your viewpoint has changed simply as a result of the recession, I'd like to know.
