IS KACI HICKOX IN THIS FOR HER 15 MINUTES OF FAME?

I’m sick of hearing Kaci Hickox’s incessant whining over the state of Maine trying to protect its citizens. Recently back in the U.S. from working with Ebola patients, she thinks she should be privileged in not having to serve a quarantine like others in the same position. Poor baby. On Thursday she and her boyfriend took an hour long bike ride and returned to a pack of journalists, which was no doubt her intention all along. There’s too much at stake here to allow some publicity craving person to upset the apple cart. The woman is supposed to be a medical professional, although I wouldn’t want her caring for me under any circumstances. Hopefully Maine will follow through on their promises and physically confine her.

IS AMERICAN PUBLIC ANGRY ENOUGH TO DELETE CONGRESS?

A CNN poll says 70% of the U.S. is angry at the direction of the country. The question is what percentage of that group is registered voters? Let’s just hypothetically guess that all of the 70% are and they are mad enough to vote all the deadbeats in Washington out of office. I’m talking both parties, although the expunction would naturally apply mostly to the GOP. Yes, we have arrived at that point. But it probably won’t happen because so many voters out there are simply unconscious and have no idea who or what they are voting for. The only thing they know for sure is what the negative advertising tells them and their decisions depend, for the most part, on which politician or political group spend the most money. Pathetic but true.

36% of Republican voters are extremely angry, compared to on 26% of Democrats. It makes sense that the GOP turnout would be higher because they have the Senate to gain. But what baffles me is why Dems don’t understand that, while they do hold a majority in the Senate, they could lose it if they don’t vote. Duh?
