Ebola, Obama, incompetence. People will remember these three words together long after Obama leaves office. Obama has blundered badly at every stage of the Great West African Ebola Outbreak of 2014. A private company handled things better at its campus in the diseased region. Some think Obama hoped to gain an “October Surprise advantage” from this affair. He will not. He and the incompetent boobs he appointed, destroyed what advantage they had. Ebola tested Big Government, and found it lacking. Everyone should learn from this debacle. Learn what private persons and enterprises can do.

Our Founders’ experience with a government that had exceeded its logical, moral, and spiritual authority greatly influenced the Constitution they would eventually design. In our Declaration of Independence they expressed their reasons for declaring their independence from tyranny along with their belief that government’s primary role was to protect our God-given rights. Our Constitution and form of government was based on those basic beliefs about what government should be and how it should be limited in order to protect our God-given right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Immediately after ratification of the Constitution, our Founders agreed that they needed to amend the Constitution in order to protect our rights as citizens in addition to limiting government. And so the first 10 Amendments that are referred to as our Bill of Rights were born. The name The Bill of Rights appropriately became the reference for these first 10 amendments because that’s what they were: amendments to protect our rights as distinguished from the Constitution that was designed to limit government.

Wards of the state: lab rats?

Lab rat. Why do we treat wards of the state like this?
Print Friendly

In the past two years, the child-protective service agencies of three states have each tried to turn one or two children, having rare genetic disorders, into wards of the state. In every case, new doctors took over the children’s care and did not treat them appropriately. As shocking as these episodes are, this has happened before. Ten years ago a scandal broke involving other experiments on wards of the state. The case included a foster-care agency in New York City, fifty children in their care, and thirteen phase-one trials of drugs to treat HIV-AIDS. Several child advocates and professors of ethics thought they’d stopped the practice. They haven’t. The experimenters learned from that case and changed tactics. Until more child advocates connect such cases, such abuses will happen again. And again, and again, and again.

The growth of tyranny in the massive bureaucracy of the Federal government has awakened too few and seems to have even fewer concerned.  But some are. They are not only willing to do something about it, they are organized and on the move.

Protocol breach by CDC

The biohazard symbol, a warning to follow protocol.

Over the weekend, the first American patient contracted Ebola fever in America. The patient, a nurse, will not give her name. She cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, alias “Patient Zero,” before he died. The CDC blames her for somehow “breaching protocol.” but they have no idea how she broke protocol. Of course they haven’t. Because she didn’t break protocol. The CDC themselves did. And so has de facto President Obama, since Ebola first broke out in West Africa.

Creation ex nihilo – light

How old is this planet? Creation gives one answer, evolution another.

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)

This verse is also scientifically profound and yet astonishingly simple. It begs the question: what came first? Sound waves or radiation waves? We know that waves transfer energy from one place to another.i Sound waves do this as well as radiation waves. The primary difference between the two is that light is polarized and travels transversely, and in most cases sound is not polarized and travels longitudinally.ii

Gender neutral or neutering?

Common Core puts a worm into this apple.
Print Friendly

Yesterday the campaign for gender neutral language and gender neutral everything breached another bastion of gender distinction. The Board of Education in Lincoln, Nebraska, issued “guidelines” for all teachers to follow when addressing their pupils. The guidelines told teachers not to address their pupils as “boys and girls” or “you guys” or even “ladies and gentlemen.” Instead they must select a gender neutral common name. Among the suggestions: “purple penguins.”

America’s poison of choice

Common core has a lot of dity money behind it and distorts rather than teaches.
Print Friendly

“Choice” may be an odd word to use when discussing America’s educational decline, since lack of parental initiative to exercise choice in education is a large contributing factor. Still, by not choosing to choose something other than government-run education, an overwhelming majority of American parents have chosen to condemn their children to the poison of an academic life of mediocrity and substandard quality. It is understandable that many parents may not have options other than government-run education available to them, but they certainly can and should make their objections to an unproductive curriculum known. Many do not do this because either they do not know or care about what is going on in the classroom or they simply trust that the government knows what it is doing. In either case, they have chosen poorly. By trusting government to run education efficiently and increase its quality, Americans have trusted government to do two things it has never done: run something efficiently and fix the problems it created.
