Great story The only problem is that Abbot would not be elected. It would be Romney or Christie that have done little to embrace free markets and individual liberty. The biggest issue is that politics attracts those with a big ego and a lot of ideas to solve the country's problems. Gone are the days of President Coolidge that was strong enough and brave enough to believe in the American people to solve their own problems without the intervention of government to make it worse Though, one can hope.
Best approach: Allow advertisements for all sorts of medical care and surgeries. Allow the market to bring about the innovations necessary to drive supply up and costs down. Get rid of the law that states that all of the hospitals have to treat everyone that comes into their emergency room. Make all services rendered chargeable to the patient. There is no free lunch Allow the FDA to be voluntary so that patients that are terminal and choose to take drugs that have not received the FDA approval. After all, it should be their choice. Government creates problems Markets solve problems
Gender politics rears its ugly head. If it is a government agency whether Federal, State or Local, there are no ramification of this kind of folly. So what, this policy puts the people of the unwashed masses at risk. They really do not count. It is only the enlightened Anointed that can "see" the errors of society and humanity and "correct" it. Once "corrected" they never look back to see the results and instead blame it on further sins of society.
This has happened in many areas where there was violence and looting. That has been why areas of Chicago and Detroit have become a wasteland because legitimate business leave because there is no property protection from the police. This leaves nothing but a wasteland of poverty and crime

Come on Ann, You know that the MSM with Rolling Stone amongst them only report the facrs - real or imagined. What is truth anyway? They have a cause and the fact that it did not happen is no excuse to let a juicy report that fits the meme "Man - bad, woman - good" go to waste. After all, not all of the facts have been proven false. We do know that Jackie exists and the UVa exists too.

Dr Williams has pointed out the key example of privelege over rule of law - Congress. Also notice that the politically connected are not prosecuted. Al Sharpton owes a lot of back taxes and there is no effort to apply the law to him

The Global Warming fanatics are not really scientists. They are the propaganda arm of the UN and the power/money hungry bureaucrats in the US and around the world. Look at their actions. They cherry pick data. They create laughable models that are skew the predictions to a ridiculously high increase in temperature. They peddle these predictions using the language of propagandists and not scientists. Look at the way they live. If you were a true believer, would you live with all of the modern conveniences of a car, electricity, a house, food from a grocery store, etc? No you would be living like Survivorman in the wild living off of nuts and berries with a tiny carbon footprint. Anyone see these hypocrites doing that?

The cynic in me thinks that the Climate Change/Global Warming/Global Cooling or whatever the control freaks want to call it is nothing more than a power grab. They simply want to tax everything and this is a convenient way to do it
Just the fact that we have GOP leadership wanting to play nice with the Dems after the Dems have done all that they could to tie the hands of the GOP is incredible. It just shows that the GOP just runs Dem wannabes for a lot the Senate seats. We need get the types of Senators that the Dems have that formulate an agenda and drive that agenda through. What do we have? The Maverick who does everything he can to slow conservatives down and emasculate their power - John McCain
Rules have to be consistent and applied equally. The current Congress eliminated the filibuster, thus the filibuster is gone.

Is Law Optional?

There is a responsibility on both sides. Those that are doing the arresting and those being arrested. Again, Garner was down and under control. If any and all force is authorized regardless of the threat that they posed, then I guess the police would have been justified in shooting Garner to death rather than choking him to death. When going into a house in a no-knock raid, many police depts use their SWAT teams in full military regalia with armored vehicles and flash grenades. Many of these suspects are low level drug users with no history of violence. Why the intimidating tactics? We need to ensure that the Police are a part of the community and stop policing like we are a war zone.
