Evidently he had to give up the robe with the pointy hood and the eyes cut out he wears into the woods when they set the cross on fire. LOL
A few weeks ago I took a relative to get a birth certificate so he could have it when he went to get his photo ID. He had to pay $8 for the cost of that certificate so he could get an ID to vote. Yes, $8 is not that much and it didn't break him but anything the State requires in order for someone to get a photo ID so he/ she can vote should be provided FREE of charge. Paying to get a certificate of Birth in order to get to vote is a POLL TAX anyway you look at it. The 24th amendment to the US constitution bans POLL
Anyone who says these photo ID laws are designed to prevent voter fraud is lying to themselves. The day some old fart walks up to me to challenge my right to vote is the day I will end up in jail!!!
So Jack Dennis you think it's good work by the NRA that they scared enough cowardly members in Congres to keep them from voting to confirm the President's nominee for Surgeon General? However, you turn around and criticize the fact he had to choose a " czar" to handle the debacle in Texas. The hypocrisy of nut jobs like yourself never ceases to amaze me.
Vivek Murthy - President Obama's nominee for Surgeon General:
B.S. in Biochemical Science: Harvard; MD Yale School of Medicine; MBA Yale School of Management.
His biggest flaw to date: he advocated a ban on Assault Weapons in the US which of course was immediately denounced by the NRA. Rand Paul put a hold on his nomination shortly after in July of this year and it's been stalled since even 10 Dems asked Harry Reid not to force a vote for fear of what the NRA would do to some of the Dems in Red States. So once again the NRA is allowed to dictate to the COWARDS who are afraid to protect the citizens of this country for fear they won't get re-elected.
A few years ago dumba$$ Rick Perry was walking around talking about Texas possibly seceding from the Union. After the debacle in Dallas where all of this started in the US that might not be a bad idea. Then we could ban anyone from leaving the country of Texas. Too bad we fought to take Texas from Mexico, maybe they want it back, but not likely. LOL
If the Repubs in the Senate had not held up the appointment of President Obama's selection for the Surgeon General because the guy made a comment concerning GUNS that the NRA didn't approve of there would be no need for someone like Klain as a "czar" However, the POS Repubs in the Senate were more concerned about appeasing the effing NRA than they were about having a Surgeon General who would be a LICENSED MEDICAL DOCTOR WITH SOME KNOWLEDGE OF MEDICAL PROCEDURES. If the Repubs had placed the welfare of this country over politics then yes, President Obama could have had Klain for the public relations part of this debacle in Texas and a Surgeon General to calm the fears of the citizens in this country.
Instead since most of the country is in a panic and Repubs are out to blame President Obama so they can get control of the Senate, Klain is not the best choice but at least he has worked with SECURITY and maybe just maybe he can quell any SECURITY issues that might arise as a result of the panic that seems to be growing.
As for the Medical part of this debacle, it appears we will have to continue to rely on the head of the CDC to disperse info to calm the public. So far he has NOT done a very good job of that.
I don't know that much about Wendy Davis other than what I've seen on T.V. But at this point I'm thinking Texas is not known for having the Country's Brain Trust. Maybe they should have let Mexico keep Texas instead of fighting to make it part of the US. Just a few years ago Rick Perry was going around talking secession anyway after this debacle in Dallas I would be willing to see them leave the Union. LOL
Like I 've said before President Obama is damned if he does something and damned if he doesn't.
I wonder Jack Dennis if you and the rest of the critics were as concerned when G.W. Bush appointed Brownie to oversee the Katrina disaster in New Orleans? That was a real threat to human life and over 1000 people were killed not to mention the thousands that were displaced.
If as you say a NURSE made the decision to send Duncan home instead of keeping him overnight for observation then that's even worse. It means the Dr. On duty in the ER didn't take the time to evaluate Duncan's symptoms. That in and of itself rises to a level of ineffective, incompetent service that no one should have to experience even if it had only been a case of the flu which of course we all know now it was not just a case of the flu!!!
As for Rick Perry, I never thought there would be any person from Texas that would be more of an imbecile than G.W. Bush but that was before I had seen Rick Perry two years ago on the stage with the rest of that clown show they called the Republican Presidential Debates.
