In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

    1. I read that this morning. That is as concerning as the issue of transporting ashes belonging to Duncan. I mentioned this yesterday. I just read an article that Judge Downing did sign it.
      The order will remain in place untill 10-22-14, when Downing will hear the case for a preliminary injuction.
      We need an experienced person now, as Surgeon General.

    1. This administration is rapidly becoming the definition of stupid.
      “Stupid is as stupid does.”
      These people are the result of leaders with massive egos.

        1. Aileen are you speaking of Rice making the comment about Turkey?
          Turkey denies Susan Rice’s claims of a new deal with U.S. in fight against ISIS.
          Has anyone seen any of the MSM pointing that out this morning?

      1. I normally don’t think this administration is stupid because its filled with highly educated people. However, they are Progressives intent on transforming this nation. And, one way they are doing that is invoking multi-culti PC wherever and whenever possible. (One recent example of that is the prohibition against federal surveillance of mosques unless there already is intelligence that illegal activities are being planned.)

        However, I’m calling this latest move “stupid” because it flies in the face of common sense. Saying that Ebola will spread if we ban commercial flights doesn’t pass the smell test. Medical charities use chartered planes, and Frieden knows this.

          1. That is exactly what I believe – this admin does not want to even risk the word “racist” in the same sentence with “Obama administration.”

          2. I have seen it called racism already, but I agree with you that the administration’s rationale for not imposing a ban on commercial flights to and from the area is completely irrational.

        1. Stupid and arrogant. Obama won’t close the border. Obama is letting into the U.S. sick Ebola people. Obama won’t appoint an Ebola czar. Call Obama “Contrary Mary”. If anyone asks him to do something regarding a life threatening disease he refuses. He spend millions of taxpayer dollars that isn’t his money on fundraising for the democrat turned communist party. He should be gone, impeached, jailed. He deserves punishment for taking risks with peoples’ lives. He has no common sense, no empathy, no intelligence, stupid, arrogant and deserves punishment. This coward/spendthrift of other peoples’ money knows nothing, He should be a dishwasher and I’m sure he would get fired at that job too. No wonder he hides his school records, but the truth about them will come out one day. Something as serious as Ebola does not even phase him, could care less if we all got it, only cares about golf and spending our money, stupid is the word.

    2. She is a WOMAN!!!!…and that qualifies her, in the loving eyes of BarryzerO, to do anything. Above criticism, above culpability, above investigation. Criticize her and you are a racist, misogynistic, homophobic Republicrat..

  1. Ann Romney sounds adamant….’We are done, done, done!’. Hope she changes her mind. This morning on MoJoe, Mark Halperin stated in no uncertain terms that Romney is running. His guess is as good as anyone else, but I tend to agree with him.
    On second thought, who in the heck would want the herculean task of cleaning up Obama’s mess!!! It could even give HRC pause, lol. Mrs. Rpmney could be on the right track….

  2. Two interesting posts on Weasel Zippers. Au contraire to Susan Rice’s claim that the Turks were going to allow NATO to use its airbases to attack ISIS, the Turks themselves are attacking the Kurds. The other thing is that one American was shot dead and another wounded in Saudi Arabia in a terror attack.

  3. I guess I just do not understand people in DC. I would think the
    republicans would be happy with Ted Cruz coming to their campaigns.
    This is not the first time I have had trouble understanding them.
