So ericynot, allowing a deadly contagious virus into our country where it will be treated in our healthcare system that already kills 210,000 people each year through human error is the least of our worries? Once again, your logic has gone missing.

"At worst, he may consider Americans' interests expendable..." This has been Obama's MO from the very beginning for both his domestic or foreign policy. Look at each and every scandal and in every case he is willing to sacrifice American citizens' interests and wellbeing in order to obtain his objectives. Some say he is ignorant. I say he along with his minions are cold and calculating.

While the Catholic vs catholic, RC vs reformational theology debates of varying quality going on here may help some come to a better understanding of what they believe and why they believe it, there are heads being chopped off in an ongoing Jihad that is coming to a street near you. Progressivism will/does enable more head-chopping. For those of us who love liberty as our Founding Fathers envisioned it, let's not let our differences regarding God and the means of our salvation, however important, distract us from the chronic and resurgent evil of the Islamists. Satan loves it when we're distracted. Personally, I'd like to keep my head attached to my neck and keep the right to freely have those theological discussions.

All true and much more. They attract those whose thirst for power, wealth and control is unquenchable.

I agree, Joycey. My "wait & watch" recommendation is to those who ignore 1400 years of history and doubt the dangerous realities of Islam. Hopefully at some point they'll come to their senses. In the meantime, the rest of us living in Realville need to be taking proactive steps to preserve our liberty and prevent as much head-chopping as possible.

For progressives, government is sacred and holy - that is to say, their government as conceived by the elite progressives, of the elite progressives, and ultimately for the elite progressives (the rest of the run-of-the-mill progressives should just be happy to be allowed to be progressives). Ultimately Progressivism is a theocracy no less theocratic than Islam and vulnerable to all of the natural human tendencies of a cult. While this is in no way saying our breed of progressives in the USA are morally equivalent to the Islamists, or any of the others Derek Hunter mentions, Progressivism leads to a door that is wide open for just such evil opportunists to appropriate the government/theocracy that progressives create.

Well put, Ress. Religious Muslims will hope for, as you say, "the eventual triumph of Islam" even if they do not support the more brutal tactics of Jihad. Moderates with few exceptions will not abandon their faith, and do not have the will or the necessary courage (of which much would be needed) to stop those who are rabid Jihadis. Europe is the current canary in the coal mine. Everyone should watch and take note of what and how things are unfolding there because what is happening there is in the process of trying to come to communities here. The same progressive mentality that opened the door to Islam in Europe is opening the door to Islam here.
In 1981 under President Reagan, the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act repealed Carter's community health legislation and establishes block grants for the states, ending the federal government's role in providing services to the mentally ill. This put the responsibility back with the states where it should be.
In 1967 while Reagan was California governor a bi-partisan bill "Lanterman-Petris-Short Act" passed the legislature. Reagan signed it into law because I believe there were enough votes to override his veto.
Misplaced rage is exactly correct. So many of these types of shootings would be prevented if paranoid schizophrenics were able to be institutionalized as they once had been. Instead liberals like Teddy Kennedy went overboard to protect the rights of those who are extremely dangerous to both themselves and others rather than working to protect the society at large. Families are left to try to deal with an impossibly difficult and dangerous mental health condition as they wreak havoc with their families, neighbors, and often end up out on the street.
