Flu season is reportedly off to an early start in the USA, with 18 children dead and some 2200 people hospitalized thus far. Is it time for a "national discussion" on flu control?
One thing's for sure: we'd be a lot better off if we blew everything east of the Mississippi River off the map. Just in the name of good health; for the benefit of society, and all that.
Speaking of diseases, Democrats have wasted no time in exploiting the recent mass shootings - they've dumped eight new anti-gun bills into the hopper already; four from one particularly rabid zealot, who apparently is unaware of the fact that a national database already exists. Or maybe she just wants to start a new one; it's hard to say. In fact, the proposals she's dumped in are all repeats of existing law, but as long as it makes her feel good, nothing else matters. It's the Democrat Way.
