Ebola: What is the true risk?

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria (e.g., MRSA & MDR-TB) and viruses (e.g., flu) constantly mutate. A mutant or variant strain can result in a pandemic. Can we believe our Government’s claims that Ebola is under control? History of Ebola and its ”cousin” Marburg suggest we are being misled.

All Citizans Lose When Idiots Fight

Are all “republicans” idiots or are there just a few republican idiots who have been elected to national government positions. Once again in the recent budget and debt limit fight, republicans snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in just a few weeks. Multiple groups of republican leaning politicians would rather be “right” than win policy battles and elections. This “righteousness” is likely to result in even more democratic victories. The idiocy is in the form of republicans calling other republicans nasty names and laying blame on each other for problems mostly caused by democrats. So long as republicans continue their idiocy, democrats can easily justify “name calling,” half-truths, and outright lies that the general public then believes.

President Obama’s Conflicting Debt Positions

The Quote of the Decade:  “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.

This season is different because our political candidates are incapable or unwilling to discuss the truth about our Nation’s problems. The truth is that the scale and magnitude of these problems are larger than our politicians’ ability to respond. This terrifies politicians because it demonstrates their need for power and personal greed have taken priority over our nation’s long-term wellbeing. Politicians’ future depends upon their ability to hide the facts.

Are Businesses and the Wealthy “Bad Citizens?”

Our citizenry has been lead to believe by politicians that businesses and the wealthy are “bad greedy citizens” because they have too much power and receive special treatment. This works out nicely for the politicians since it provides food for their rhetoric. But is this conclusion true or false? The answer is “false.” The argument is up side down.

Politicians in return for favors and money (bribes) bestow power and special treatment to businesses and the wealthy. The politicians have past laws and rules that allow them to legally accept favors and money and they eagerly do so. Who are the “bad citizens” in this scenario? Is it those who offer the (legal) bribes to the politicians or the politicians who passed the laws and rules that allow them to take bribes?
