OK first ebola is not "highly contagious" as witness the 48 people with pretty close contact with a very sick ebola patient who did not catch the disease. You are much more apt to catch and die of hepatitis or influenza both of which are "highly contagious". We are spending millions because the media wants to fan a situation and take minds off the real problems we have

What America Needs Now

The difference is that in those days we wanted to raise up America and move us forward. Now we spend most of our efforts on "meddling" for want of a better word. Instead of leading by example we use force and tactics that don't fit our American heritage of freedom instead feed and legitimize our opponents propaganda. We used to be a shining beacon of freedom and law that others could aspire to now we are more often a busybody neighborhood bully operating for the benefit of those corporations/people with the "right connections". Kennedy was proposing that we show the world what a free people could do given a lofty goal not that we "destabilize" those who disagreed with us.

You are absolutely right about what these laws will be used for. My guess is they would really prefer that you don't register because now anytime they want you they have you as a "felon". Write a letter to the editor get a judge to grant a search warrant because you might be a threat and voila off to jail. With that degree of support should be able to vote out anyone who wouldn't repeal the law

Are Guns the Problem?

I remember those days as well. In addition we all knew guns were dangerous (except the ones we played cowboys and indians with) and no one picked up a gun and pointed it at anyone let alone pulled the trigger. Maybe that's why the NY times reports on the increase in "accidental" shootings by kids. Maybe if we brought gun education and guns back into the classroom we could prevent some of those. Maybe if we taught " Safe guns" like we teach safe sex and added a little morality (like don't have kids you can't afford to take care of) we could prevent many of these??
