Happenings Ten Years Time Ago

The president of the United States clenched his jaw, narrowed his eyes and wagged his finger.  Glaring at the cameras, Bill Clinton ordered: “I want you to listen to me.  I’m going to say this again, I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.  I never told anybody to lie, not a single time - never.

Time to Fight Back Against “Angry Paranoid” Anti-Vaccinationists

Grant the anti-childhood vaccine fanatics this; they are dogged. No amount of data and no number of studies from any array of sources will sway them from their beliefs – or claimed beliefs – that thimerosal, a mercury-containing vaccine preservative once used in many such injections, is causing the so-called “autism epidemic.”

Election Year Nonsense

To use a play on Winston Churchill’s cynical words, the best argument against democracy is a five-minute perusal of election coverage.  Another way to put it – at risk of sounding trite – is if it weren’t for nonsense, it wouldn’t make any sense at all.  Yet, if being trite were a sin, most presidential aspirants would languish in political purgatory.

Hillary - Judged by the company she keeps

Hillary ClintonLAS VEGAS - The Nevada caucus is over, but several issues emerged that help define the woman selected to be the state Democratic Party’s nominee.

First and foremost, it took dozens of translators stationed in the caucus locations to help the majority of Clinton supporters understand speeches and fill out their ballots. These “voters” who could neither speak nor write in our nation’s language were asked (in Spanish) to sign a document attesting to the fact that they were in the United States legally. After obediently doing so, the majority voted for Hillary Clinton at caucus locations within the hotels where they’re employed.
