Mr. Spittler has been watching waaaaay too much Fox Noise.
Jack, since your posts in this 'forum' average about 7.5 words among ten posts, it is clear that you have not exceeded the contributory threshold of a simplistic troll so I, for one, will not engage you further.
You got that right, Jack. Ebola and Republicans are two peas in a pod and America has one hell of a fever.
Good one, Clay.
The Limbaughtomized cranks harassing the prez in this cartoon represent the majority of talk-radio propagandized wingnuts always running their mouths (like those in this forum). I have no love for Mr. Obama but, were those good 'ol boys dressed in business suits, they would be thanking him for the meteoric stock market which has gone from 9,000 to 17,000 over the course of his presidency; they would be thanking him for protecting their bankers from prosecution for putting millions of rank-and-file Americans out of their homes; they would complement him for the 30% reduction in the federal deficit and they would feel confident in their investments in the military-petrochemical-industrial complex which endless war is sure to keep secure.
Yes, the nitwits can keep griping but their wealthy betters are sure to keep smugly silent - letting their puppets like Boehner and McConnell do their bidding.
Sadly, America has showed its military machine can not win a war against primitive tribesmen even after spending a trillion dollars on the effort - and is now fighting that same enemy which now possesses American hardware paid for by American taxpayers.
And America has shown that its best medical facilities cannot completely protect health care workers from a virus for which there is no cure that is on the brink of a global expansion infecting 10,000 victims a week. I wonder what those gripers have to say about the endless Republican budget cuts which the director of the CDC says have crippled the research that could have made an Ebola vaccine available by now.
Chuckie never got the memo that pachyderms are supposed to reach out and grab the tail of their party "leaders", not stick their nose all the way up their arse. Not all of the local constituency is composed of mindless conservathugs whose politics are programmed into them by right wing jihadists on talk radio. He will never be worth a tinker's damn as a "representative" of the people.
The last line of the editorial sums things up perfectly. Every community has amenities which are central to its character and deserve to be protected. This has nothing to do with economic status, INQ. Signal Mountain has residents from all economic strata and all will benefit from the proposal. It's about a logical effort to put natural areas, which no sane person would propose be developed anyway, into protected status. It is forward-thinking and deserves wide community support.
Those not in support of conservation (some of whom are seeking election to the town council) seem driven more by love of money than love of community. Their efforts to discredit the work of community leaders, who have done the necessary due diligence on preservation options, indicate they are likely fronting for people who have designs on the community which the majority of citizens do not support and I urge citizens to reject them on election day.
It seems every election there is a cadre of puppets for the realty and developer class that seek to stack the town council for selfish interests. Whenever signs for any candidate become ubiquitous weeks early before election time and their statements in candidate forums are blatant misrepresentations of the facts, they disqualify themselves, in my opinion.
Annette Allen and Susan Robertson have done yoeman's work for the town and deserve to be returned to office. Thanks to them both.
But, sadly Ms. Bradford and Lib, the only array of facts missing were those needed to prove that he ever existed at all.
NO ONE SHOULD PRESUME TO DETERMINE WHETHER A WOMAN TERMINATES A PREGNANCY OR NOT. NOT ANY RABID CONSERVATIVE POLITICIAN; NOT ANY GODBOTHERING RELIGIONIST; NOT ANY MAN; NOT ANY WOMAN; NOT ANYONE AT ALL BUT THE WOMAN HERSELF WHO POSSESSES WITHIN HER OWN BODY, BY WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCE, A FERTILIZED EGG. THE EGG IS NO MORE A HUMAN CHILD THAN A SPARK PLUG IS A CAR. IT DOES NOT OWN THE BODY IN WHICH IT EXISTS, THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE. UNTIL IT DEVELOPS TO A POINT AT WHICH IT CAN SURVIVE OUTSIDE THE WOMB, THERE IS NO FOUNDATION FOR ANY CONSIDERATION OF 'PERSONHOOD'.
THE ASSAULT ON CLINICS OFFERING WOMEN MEDICAL SERVICES WHICH ARE BEING CLOSED ACROSS THE COUNTRY BY AFOREMENTIONED GODBOTHERING RELIGIONIST-INSPIRED CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS IS AN ABSOLUTE CRUSADE OF MISOGYNY AND SEEKS THE SUBJUGATION OF WOMEN, THE THEFT OF THEIR NATURAL RIGHTS AND HARKENS BACK TO AN EVIL AND PRIMITIVE TIME MOST PEOPLE WOULD CONSIDER COMMON TO THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF THE DARK AGES.
It's always been that way. Only in recent years have people had to flock to the United States of Greed in search of what's been stolen from them back home by our neoliberal political meddling, the "war on drugs" and capitalist economic scams to steal their resources.
It's not "their" problem, it's ours and we refuse to recognize it.
Prison stripes would suit him best, but we'll never see him wearing those either. He'll be up on Wall Street in some penthouse office while we stand here in the rubble of our democracy.
