    I think Eleri misplaces credit / blame for the demise of Sheppard – Towner. Along with a segment of the AMA, Conservatives, lead by Elizabeth Lowell Putnam and others, who, presaging Joe McCarthy, brow-beat, black-mailed and black-listed members and leaders of several “Women’s Rights” groups (including the Daughters of 1812 and the DAR) into support for their “anti-Communist, anti-Government” agenda, smearing those groups in their anti-feminist, anti-poor-maternal, “Not-with-MY-tax-money” Conservative campaign, resulting in Congressional failure to reauthorize funding for the program.

    …but thanks, Ms. Harris – never would have been aware of this bit of my Nation’s past.

    If you commit /abet an assault (crime) based on fraud and prevarication of which you are unaware…are you still equally culpable for the action ? This is the apparent reason for a large portion of the Democratic (maybe some of the Republican) and world “support” for the 2003 Iraqi invasion. Ineptitude or disinterest in diplomatic solutions is not an excuse for what happened in that war – destruction of a nation to remove it’s leader from power (because he tried to hurt yer Daddy…and YOU have the Power !) with no plan to clean up the mess you create – including caring for your own damaged citizens – and all on the “Credit Card”, because " Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter." ~ D. Cheney…until the “Other Guys” get in office. Unfortunately, you are not “alone” in such “logic”.

    The 2003 Iraq Invasion – W’s War – required 21 days of official combat operations, 19 March to 9 April, 2003. Where do you get 4 days ? …from Gulf I (G H W Bush)?

    The Penny Plan is non-specific, ill-considered as to effect and actually illustrates why a “Flat Tax” is anything but fair, if you think about it: http://tinyurl.com/ckzo96s

    Would you expect them to split their support to those who have been the antithesis of their (admittedly) extreme agenda…and why are Democrats responsible for ALL the weirdness of a fringe group that happens to align more with their ethos than the opposing party ? That would truly be “Nutz”!

    Anecdotal evidence of isolated cases does not even indicate, let alone prove “massive voter fraud”. As the case you cited required special circumstances, and “registration” in BOTH states, the measures espoused by the GOP would not have stopped her ploy. The GOP’s proposals would not address absentee vote fraud – a much easier do and, after all, the one who counts the votes can do much more damage than any individual crime / error – but no GOP oversight there. The “BS” is coming as misdirection and disenfranchisement from the Right.

    Many of Iran’s neighbors are against a treaty / negotiated settlement for various and widely divergent reasons (NOT black & white, as you infer), some supporting Iran – others against – many because they do not trust Iran or the ability of the US (with our fractious political situation) to at a strong, safe agreement. What is your logical position ? Do nothing?…“Bomb, bomb Iran” preemptively?…BOG Invasion?…on our own? Where’s the $$$ coming from? (China ?…We’re BROKE !)…what about collateral damage, inside Iran and out – those neighbors will likely suffer from both sides – and who will “clean up the mess” afterward, whatever the process and outcome…what’s your logical thought on those considerations?

    In response to 9/11, the sharing of information and coordination of efforts between security & law enforcement agencies and other emergency responders seemed a good idea. The implementation of TSA was, however, a poorly thought-out, hurried response to the “we must DO SOMETHING !” ​ideology, to allay fears of further terrorist acts in a grand, public, stand-up-chest-out-shoot-from-the-hip way​. It seemed more ​a way to impress the public ​with a “We are on this !” reaction​ than effect the perpetrators and address real security problems – understandable, but TSA should have then been integrated, “polished”, made (more) efficient – something more effective than a “NO TRESPASSING”​ sign and, along with the “Patriot Act”, less of an infringement on the freedoms of and a general PITA for the citizens it was supposed to “protect”. Bureaucracies, Government or Corporate, tend to (unsupervised) grow, to protect the “turf” of the bureaucrats/ supervisors/managers (so much for “Small Government” , when defense/security/quasi-military agencies are involved). The BOGs in TSA largely are conscientious folks trying to, as best they can, do their jobs as directed by their “employers” who, trying to react to each Media-driven & internet-enhanced new perceived threat, seem to enjoy the role of “Chicken Little” (I’ll NEED more people, power & $$$). It would be difficult, likely counter-productive and quite expensive to again individuate the agencies combined in the agency – “Repeal TSA” and go back to where we were – the idea was good, the implementation (because, in part, of the “Rush” to “Do Something”) less so. Let’s have a little cogency, and make TSA a deliberated result instead of political “eye-wash” ?
