I’ve posted how a medical threat like Ebola isn’t necessarily going to be solved by a central medical authority. The CDC has already shown how it could be made worse. But the central government always pretends it has all the answers. It especially pretends that it alone can give us real justice—all “lower” institutions should simply submit to its will. Thus, we have the situation where the Feds are forcing lower standards of justice on colleges and universities.
But exactly what Read more [...]
Supposedly, the United States is the champion of human rights all around the world, and should thus intervene in the case of any Christian martyr in the making. But that means forcing other nations and cultures to accommodate homosexual delusions of marriage, not helping out Christians in danger of death by government for being Christian. Our government would prefer to issue public warnings to weaker nations against taking the Bible seriously. It is more important to force a majority-Roman-Catholic Read more [...]
The anti-Christians are at it again.
A group calling itself the Satanic Temple wants to put up a "holidays" display in the Florida State Capitol, after a similar display was rejected last year.
Helping to push the effort is Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which sent a threatening legal letter to the Florida Department of Management Services over its refusal to allow the Satanists to set up in the Capitol.
The letter contained the usual claptrap about the "wall of separation" Read more [...]
Photograph of lunch program reveals not much food.
Going hungry is not healthy and it does not help do anything about childhood obesity. If anything, it will increase the amount of junk food that children will buy at gas stations and fast food restaurants. This point was made in an interview after outrage over school lunches erupted in Chickasha, Oklahoma. It was reported by Fox 25 Oklahoma City.
"These regulations were put into effect two years ago and were still struggling with them."
There Read more [...]
The U.S. Government is an Ebola lie factory.
Alleged man-made global warming or climate change has become the new version of the Devil or witchcraft. All the evils in the world, and every evil, can be blamed on it. Thus, CNS News: “U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Ebola: ‘Consequence of Deforestation and Climate Change’”
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service posted on its website an article that claims Ebola is a “direct consequence” of manmade climate change.
The article also Read more [...]
Halle Berry is not happy with the father of her daughter. She wants him to work for a living.
Halle Berry and her much younger ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubrey, seem to have a disagreement. He is apparently “without gainful employment” as the saying goes. Berry thinks he should be supporting himself.
According to the Daily Mail, “Halle Berry 'wants monthly child support obligation to Gabriel Aubrey slashed from $16,000 a month to just $3,000'”
They are parents to six-year-old Nahla, Read more [...]
I’ve already posted today about the problem with treating the Centers for Disease Control as the central authority that can save us. Perhaps the CDC’s “quiet” changes in the description of Ebola and its dangers will help us see the problem more clearly.
According to the Daily Caller, “CDC Quietly Lowered Critical Ebola Temperature After Nurse Became Ill.”
The Centers for Disease Control quietly lowered the official threshold for what it considers significant fever after the Read more [...]
What is amazing about this story of the police state is that a police officer, who shot and killed a sleeping seven-year-old girl as she lay on her sofa, was brought to trial at all. But if you or I had decided to go into a residence in search of an alleged criminal, and had fired shots in a residence with several small children, killing one of them, then we would be in prison today.
But the jury ended up deadlocked, resulting in the second mistrial. The prosecutor does not plan to try a third Read more [...]
We have been treated to a string of stories asserting or assuming that only central power can save us from an Ebola plague. But the facts don’t add up.
Monday, I pointed out how the media was campaigning for more centralized authority as the self-evident solution to our risk of an outbreak. The big problem is that states have autonomy and the CDC can only offer advice that no one is required to obey. If only we had a Federal cadre of doctor-dictators telling us all what to do, then we would Read more [...]
We don’t need Ebola to explain sinking stock prices. It is amazing the market has lasted as long as it has.
I often wonder if those who read the news even believe what they're saying.
ABC Radio News yesterday talked about the plummeting stock market, and they identified the reason for this week's collapse.
No, they didn't talk about a runaway Congress which has stolen more taxpayer money than ever this year—while still running a half-a-trillion dollar deficit. No, they didn't blame Read more [...]
It is easy to predict that the Democrats are going to get crushed in the 2014 elections. But we need to be careful.
ABC News pointed to what I think is the good news and the bad news: “Trouble Looms for Obama, Democrats with Election Day 2014 Approaching.”
Barack Obama and his political party are heading into the midterm elections in trouble. The president’s 40 percent job approval rating in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll is the lowest of his career – and the Democratic Party’s Read more [...]
Perhaps it is premature to say that Big Brother is watching your weight, but he is certainly trying to develop the capacity to do so.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, “Feds Spend $2.1 Million to Develop Weight-Tracking Insoles, Buttons.”
Buttons? “Wearable button videotapes what an obese person eats.” Gotcha.
The federal government is spending more than $2 million to develop wearable insoles and buttons that can track a person’s weight in order to fight obesity.
The Read more [...]
