"75% of 2014 graduates, were required to take courses in race and ethnicity, diversity, and gender studies in order to graduate" Why are they teaching them their differences rather than their sameness? We're no different under the skin. Teach them to treat each other equally as human beings instead of "sensitivity training" - no one should feel so special they have to be handled with kid gloves.
I'm also thinking the Brits have better intelligence than we do.
I have to wonder if there would be any beheadings if the punishment was the same as the crime.... I'm not advocating that; I'm just wondering if it would be a deterrent.

Agree - don't know why the author brings up race when it comes to militarization of the police. Makes no sense.

They've behaved like a militarized police force here in Iowa. It's foolish to think this has anything to do with race. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/02/04/some-are-saying-this-surveillance-video-is-evidence-of-the-alarming-militarization-of-local-police-forces-in-u-s/
Ann, it's not you. Mention the term "quarantine" any more and you get outrage, too. Good medical practice has gone down the tubes. A lot of people would also deny there are any poor in the U.S. that need help. You made some excellent points in your column - ignore the critics that are blind to the obvious. There is another question that should have been asked: "What if one of those planes had crashed?" They took a tremendous risk in bringing those doctors back. They will need to be quarantined for a good number of weeks after they recover as the virus is still transmissible for a number of weeks afterwards.
She's got a point. With doctors turning down more Medicare and Medicaid patients and with Obamacare, some people here can be in as dire need of care as anyone else around the world. "Right there in Texas, near where Dr. Brantly left his wife and children to fly to Liberia and get Ebola, is one of the poorest counties in the nation, Zavala County -- where he wouldn't have risked making his wife a widow and his children fatherless. But serving the needy in some deadbeat town in Texas wouldn't have been "heroic."" But...I don't fault the docs for going overseas. I do question the wisdom of bringing them back home with the disease and at great cost - a cost that may not be fully known for a while....
Adoption???? Put the animal down before it does it to someone else.
Absolutely agree.
When I was working on a production line, they laid us off when there wasn't enough work. Time to give these slackers the boot.
