The Case For Killing The Filibuster

true liberal Wrote: Feb 13, 2015 11:15 AM
This may be a little short sighted at this point. This would only be good for nominees to different posts in the Administration. Even if they did away with the Fillibuster and passed legislation the President could veto it and require 67 votes in the Senate to override it. So what does it really buy you?
Killing them makes them stronger. Makes an interesting argument that I think the Obama Administration has implemented from the beginning. If "killing them makes them stronger" you would engage in the opposite tactic which would mean that we would want to support our enemies rather than kill or even oppress them. Following that same thought that "killing them makes them stronger" we would want to employ that on our allies and even the American people. Instead of deploying troops to fight ISIS, we should be attacking Israel, France, Britain, Germany, etc ti=o make them stronger and sending support to China and Russia. Wow, I think I have unraveled the Grand Plan
When will someone ask the Administration spokesmen at what point do they reach the "Baghdad Bob" moment or have we reached that moment as far as the Middle East is concerned.
Here is the riddle: What is Obama's Strategy against Global Terror? I give up ...
This is another reason why you do not want to have the Feds involved in a local issue like education and lunch. The Feds and the State governments have messed up Public Education that it is practically useless in many parts of the country. Privatize and let the people decide
Agreed. The only mandate is that the vaccination is recorded and allowing everyone the freedom of association and the rights to private property to allow them to choose their association in their private lives and in business. If this works for vaccines, then why not allow it for any and all reasons?

The Herd That Has the Immunity

However, this cannot be anecdotal. There has to be a causal link and not just a correlation. In addition, there has to be a risk/benefit analysis done. When the parents of these children do not vaccinate, they are riding on the hope that everyone else vaccinates so that the herd will protect their child. If there are no vaccinations, Disneyland, schools, businesses, etc should be able to turn them away
There are a few pieces to the argument: #1. Should parents have a right to decide whether or not to vaccinate either themselves or their children? - Yes Everyone has a right to their own bodies But there is another right that people have or should have: #2. Does a person get to decide with whom they associate - Freedom of Association? Yes - again If a parent does not vaccinate then another parent can decide not to expose their children or themselves to this person Another corollary right: #3 Do people have a right to property? Yes This includes businesses as well as private spaces such as malls, churches and homes. If a business decides that they will not employ those that are not vaccinated, they have that right. If a business decides to exclude those that are not vaccinated from their premises, they have that right. As long as these rights are respected, then this allows parents to remove their kids from school if they allow the unvaccinated. This also allows businesses to protect themselves despite what the EOCC, HUD, etc and other government agencies say. Unfortunately, Christie never goes that far. Parents can leave their children unvaccinated potentially threatening the herd while the herd has no recourse except to brace itself for the infection
What does anyone expect? I am surprised that all of the Dems in the House did not bail.

To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate?

I believe that everyone should have control of their bodies and make choices for themselves, but the same is true for the rest of society. If you do not vaccinate and they believe that will put them at risk, then they have the right to refuse entry into their premises whether it is a home, a business or any other private property.

To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate?

SO now we must consider the rights of the herd. Should the herd separate themselves from those that are not vaccinated?
