Nurse Kaci Hickox says she won't obey Maine's Ebola quarantine: I won't be 'bullied by politicians'
Wed Oct 29, 2014
In reply to: DrowningGrover #2.3 Why did he do that? She'd been in Africa, exposed to Ebola patients, and had a temperature of 101 at the airport. Are you arguing that fever is NOT a symptom of Ebola? That symptomatic patients can NOT spread the disease? Or that free-range Ebola is healthier than th …
'This cover was a sucker punch to all teachers'
Tue Oct 28, 2014
Right, I mean the facts are simple. In a DECADE of hundreds of complaints a year, you can't get but maybe 12 teachers fired... and those took on average 800 days and $300,000 to fire for gross incompetence and ILLEGAL activity. Can't do your job? Well if you're a liberal you DESERVE a salary a …
Bioethicist: 7 Reasons Ebola Quarantine Is a Bad, Bad Idea
Sun Oct 26, 2014
In reply to: Maddie2014 #22 Good plan. Sometimes kids on school field trips run off. Even with people minding then and trying to keep them together. So the next field trip; we'll skip the teachers and minders and let them run wild... it can't possibly be worse than having 1 or 2 kids run off.. …
Texas woman threatened with jail after applying for voter ID
Fri Oct 24, 2014
"it is illegal to drive in Texas on another state’s driver license 90 days after moving into the state" Weird, so she broke the law and they threatened to arrest her? How dare they! Don't they know people get to violate laws without punishment now?
GOP blames Obama for obstruction on Surgeon General
Mon Oct 20, 2014
In reply to: Eileen-2917998 #4.3 A Hold, well you can't clear that. We learned that when Janet Yellen nominee for the Chair of the Federal Reserve and Rand Paul put a hold on her. There was a cloture vote, 59 votes for cloture (not 60) but that's enough under the new rules. The 56 votes and she was …
Obama to Tap Former VP Chief of Staff Ron Klain as Ebola 'Czar'
Fri Oct 17, 2014
In reply to: MSNBCcensoredmyname #1.4 Because since Nov 2013 (when Reid killed the filibuster for appointees) to confirm a Surgeon General requires 51 votes in the Senate. The 53 Democrats and 2 Independents who caucus with them can't possibly get 51 votes without the "teabaggers"... right? 53 < …
A Surgeon General nominee 'tied up in politics'
Wed Oct 15, 2014
SO how do we fix this? How do we get a vote? Well, you clear the hold, with a separate vote. After November 2013, when the filibuster was nuked for appointees, this takes 51 votes to clear the hold. Then 51 votes to approve. There are 53 Democrats in the Senate, and 2 Independents who caucus with th …
President Obama on ISIS: 'We Don't Have a Strategy Yet'
Thu Aug 28, 2014
In reply to: D-1129384 #138 Do I know what to do? Not really. But if the US Military, Military Intelligence, the State Department, AND the CIA had been briefing me on this for OVER A YEAR ... I think I'd have a strategy or two worked out. But that's just me... a regular guy; we can't expect th …
Adviser's past remarks could give Obamacare a headache
Fri Jul 25, 2014
In reply to: Carl Lafoon #5.5 Yep, either you set up a STATE exchange, or the Feds set up a FEDERAL exchange. ONLY STATE exchanges qualify for subsides, by the clear text of the law. Therefore Republicans are stupid thinking they don't apply to the FEDERAL exchanges, which are NOT STATE exchanges... …
Fate for Most Kids Who Cross the Border? Staying in the U.S.
Mon Jul 14, 2014
In reply to: Dr veruju #51 Well of course. http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-deport-children-20140706-story.html Last year we had 20,805 unaccompanied children, we deported 1,669 as the most we could possibly manage. This year we're already over 65,000 inbound added to the queue. If yo …
