Vaccines: Is One Size Fits All Best for Our Kids?

Well, she’s at it again. Jenny McCarthy is talking about vaccines and recently commented in a Chicago Sun-Times Article,

 “I am not ‘anti-vaccine.’ This is not a change in my stance nor is it a new position that I have recently adopted. For years, I have repeatedly stated that I am, in fact, ‘pro-vaccine’ and for years I have been wrongly branded as ‘anti-vaccine.’ “

Anyone who has followed her on the subject and listened, would know she’s absolutely correct in defense of herself. Yet she’s still highly criticized and labeled an anti-vaccine fanatic as Michael Spector of The New Yorker said about her new job, “ “The View,” will be the show’s first co-host whose dangerous views on childhood vaccination may – if only indirectly – have contributed to the sickness and death of people throughout the Western World.” Aligning her as a leader of a deadly and “authoritatively discredited anti-vaccine movement.”

That’s quite a bold statement from someone who doesn’t know what he’s talking about – at least when it comes to McCarthy’s position on the matter.

UPDATE: We say never forget....

USA Today is reporting that, in a move that is chillingly reminiscent of Nazi Germany, Jews in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk were asked to register by people handing out leaflets as they were exiting Passover services. The people handing out leaflets were wearing masks.

There’s A First Time for Everything: A Defense of Congressman Jim Moran

You know what they say: there’s a first time for everything. Even things you never thought you would do in your wildest dreams. And so with that in mind, I embark on a partial defense of my Congressman, Jim Moran.

Congressman Moran has been under fire for the past two weeks for telling Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid…I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.” Congressman Moran made the comments in advance of introducing an amendment to a spending bill that would provide a per diem housing allowance for Members of Congress, as many state legislatures provide. The amendment failed, but the controversy of his comments lives on.

Eric Holder’s Racism Is Unacceptable and It Must Stop

On Tuesday, April 8, Attorney General Eric Holder and Republicans clashed yet again over Mr. Holder’s refusal to turn over documents to Congress. 

If you remember, two years ago the same defiant actions were taken by Mr. Holder when he refused to submit Fast and Furious documents that President Obama ended up exerting executive privilege over. 

Really it’s the same song and dance, when political parties and executive appointees go head to head, but in some of the instances involving Mr. Holder there have been twists added.  Never has a government official played the race card as much or ever been more racist themselves as Eric Holder.  (Except Democrats back in the 60’s when they vehemently opposed civil rights.)  That being said, let's highlight some of Mr. Holder’s most racist banter that many have either ignored or justified over the past few years.

The Jason Patric Story: A Time To Forgive

I was in the waiting room at the doctor’s office last week, and I began to flip through a People Magazine on the coffee table. I came across an article about Jason Patric that both saddened and angered me. Moved to tears, I went home and researched his story.

Jason Patric, best known for his roles in The Lost Boys and Sleepers, is involved in an acrimonious legal battle with his ex-girlfriend, massage therapist Danielle Schreiber.
