great response...........so, are you denying the accuracy?
It would have been nice if Prager had been a bit more honest in his writing. He has often said that "saying the 'liberal media' is redundant". So, by penning a very general column like this about "the media" many people are going to think that the MSM or the left wing media is as guilty, or more so, than the far right cesspool that Prager wallows in. Here are just a few examples: Glenn Beck......Obama allowed the disease to come to fruition in Dallas because this is not a pro-Obama area Michael Savage......Obama is guilty of "treason". His INTENTION is to have our troops (serving in Africa) infected and then bring the disease back to America Laura Ingrahm (spell?)......Obama's aid to Africa is tied into his father's rage against colonialism. He is trying to "level the playing field", and, in so doing, "if a few members of the military have to be exposed, so be it" Limbaugh......high ranking gov't officials are thinking "By God, we (Americans) deserve to get it (Ebola)" Alex Jones.....this is a "false flag" designed to increase "medical tyranny" Bill O'reilly.......the head of the CDC is the "chief propagandist" in this "dangerous ruse" ( to clarify, his contention was that the situation in the U.S. was much WORSE, not better, than we were being told by the CDC It would have been nice if Prager had actually called out his fellow wing nuts but that would have taken the type of ethics, guts and integrity that he can't deliver.
Dr............my question is whether the people who applauded were LITERALLY saying that THAT particular cigarette was, right then and there, endangering THEIR health........which is absurd....or if they were, through their applause, saying that, IN GENERAL, second hand smoke can cause health problems. I suspect it might have been the latter.
Enrique....right. Ever since Obama took office there has been a cottage industry of those who earn their money criticizing Obama for anything and everything he does (the gulf oil spill was a classic example). So, it is no surprise at all that the far right was going to be all geared up to heap blame on Obama for the ebola situation despite the fact that, thus far, only one person on American soil,(who contacted the disease in Africa) , has died. But what has been somewhat surprising is how completely insane the theories are that are flying around....that Obama is INTENTIONALLY trying to kill our troops by sending them to Africa, that he is INTENTIONALLY allowing or even causing, the disease to spread in the U.S. to give the dems a boost in the mid terms, that he is allowing the disease to spread in the U.S. because this will somehow allow him to "cancel" the 2016 election and will, in turn, allow him to stay in office for another term, etc etc etc. These wacky conspiracy theories are NOT coming from the left. But, of course, Prager conveniently fails to focus on this.

On a side note...............Prager is either very uninformed or else very dishonest. During yesterday's show , he went on a major rant about how the Mayor of Houston had, apparently in order to quash any political opposition, issued subpoenas to various churches in order to get transcripts of their sermons. Prager went on and on about how chilling this was, how this scared him much more than Ebola, etc etc. When I was hearing it, it just did NOT ring true at all. I knew there HAD to be more to the story than what prager was letting on to. I found it all but impossible to believe that, strictly for political purposes, the mayor of one of the largest U.S. cities would be harassing churches in that manner. As it turns out, Prager was, in effect, lying to everyone. The churches in question are part of a group called ADF............and THEY started the ball rolling BY FILING A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE CITY (pertaining to the implementation of anti-discriminatory laws). It's perfectly within their legal rights to file such a lawsuit......but....when any matter does go into litigation it is also perfectly legal for the defendant (in this case, the city of Houston) to obtain material info via subpoena as part of their defense. I won't hold my breath for Prager to issue a "correction" on this story.

Good message...just turn your brain and your "moral compass" off and vote for WHATEVER candidate is put forward by your party. Who cares if the person is shockingly corrupt and/or incompetent........it's party first! It's exactly this type of thinking that has led to the mess we're in in terms of the senate and congress. And, FWIW, I think that Prager's line of thinking is morally bankrupt regardless of which party you favor. Why the people in NY continue to re-elect the corrupt, buffoonish Charlie Rangle (a Dem) is beyond me.

Enrique..........that IS classic Prager. I would also add that, since, in the end, Iraq has turned into what many people had feared it was going to be from the start of the war, at least we no longer have to hear Prager crowing about how "the left" was wrong about the miraculous results of the surge. And, in addition, we don't have to hear his mockery of Biden in terms of the one state system not being workable in Iraq.

Michael..............wow, does that idiotic phrase go back that far? I thought it might have been a Rush Limbaugh creation.
