No one is giving David Quaddam any grief for his assertion (on Anderson Cooper 365 last week) that we OWE it to the Liberians to keep the borders open and NOT turn our backs on them because if it weren't for America, there would BE no Liberia. The country was founded when this country needed a place to congregate slaves before sending them to this country. What THAT has to do with fighting a virus where it is currently "out of control" and opening the gates to allow it free rein in THIS country is beyond me. None of us alive today had anything to do with slave trade hundreds of years ago, and battling a disease means going to IT rather than inviting IT to come to YOU. Duh.
I feel sorry for the low information types, those who cannot think critically about the evidence they have before them, and the racists and race-baiters who are perpetuating the outcry in Ferguson. I feel sorry for business owners who cannot open their doors for fear of thugs walking in and helping themselves to more than $50 worth of cigars (and much much more) because they feel entitled. Every one of the protesters should be jailed or detained. Is there a curfew or are the police just letting these thugs have free rein?
Everybody has a price. This gal's price is relatively cheap. So is she.
Elevating anyone to the status of "superstar" in a world that is filled with the truly suffering is beyond me. These "stars" play the children's game "Let's Pretend." They are paid humongous sums of money and in some cases (Cher, Tom Cruise) they cannot read their own scripts. Many "stars" have little or no formal education. I can understand paying pro ball players a lot of money (to keep THEM honest so the game is honest), but I cannot see how a movie star's salary is justified. Worse, these empty-headed but semi-attractive human beings the idea that they should express opinions about things they know NOTHING. Thankfully Gwyneth's mother Blythe Danner, who I am sure opened many doors for her daughter, is remaining silent. Mom is showing at least some class.

Excellent column, Derek. And had someone spoken out when Rachel Carson wrote her fictional piece "Silent Spring," we would not be dealing with all this global warming nonsense. Too often anyone with a brain prefers to take the high and silent road to defeat. I'm hoping social media and sites like Town Hall (and columnists like YOU) are read far and wide (and early and often!)
First sentence has a dangling modifier. John Walsh dropped out of the race. The US Army War College did not. Sentence should read: Weeks after dropping out of the Montana Senate race over allegations of plagiarism, former Sen. John Walsh had his master's degree revoked by the U.S. Army War College. You're welcome ;o)

ObamaCare for Dummies

I never understood why those of us who are happy with our medical insurance had to LOSE what we had in order to pay for those without. Of the how-many-ever-millions who had no insurance (the number was always changing), some were "the invincibles," the young and healthy who did not want health insurance because they didn't need it yet (the very same who had to buy into Obamacare to make it work); others were those with pre-existing conditions that precluded them from most plans; still others were the "last and the least" who were too poor to afford even the most basic of plans; and the final group was the parasite class that expects everyone else to pay for EVERYTHING in their lives--food, clothing, shelter, and medical costs. The Invincibles and the Parasites are the largest groups. Providing for them is unconscionable, but it is, after all, the Liberal way. The more people who are controlled, the bigger their vote at election time. Obamacare IS for dummies--those who think it's a good deal and those who are forced onto it because Obama lied.
There is more than Ebola to worry about with third-worlders coming across our borders. tuberculosis, the various flu viruses, scabies, head lice, and more. In the old days every immigrant was examined and if there was any reason to doubt the state of their health, they were quarantined for 30 days or more until whatever caused suspicion was either proven right or dismissed. Today it's open season, and for those parents who don't believe in vaccinating their children, we have additional fears of widespread infectious diseases. The perfect storm.

And the decline of the economy during George Bush's last two years is totally because of George Bush when it was Nancy Pelosi and her ugly twin sister Harry Reid who controlled Congress and who passed CR after CR until they could get "one of their own" in the White House. Then, Katie bar the door. Dodd-Frank and all the rest of the cr*p legislation from the Left got set at George's feet, too. And the GOP kept its collective mouth shut and here we are.
And now that the Secret Service--some members at least, aided and abetted by their superiors--have proven themselves to be less than trustworthy, the White House and their toadies will blame them for anything that goes wrong. God forbid the POTUS step in and order something done. He's too busy golfing.
The MSM did not hold Obama accountable when he talked about visiting 57 states, when he called a serviceman a "corpseman," when he spoke of the Austrian language or made claims about doctors preferring to wait for patients with diabetes to develop foot problems requiring amputation. They let THIS stuff pass, and now they're surprised he's lied to them? I call this an epiphany.
