The conglomeration of groups brought out by the Trayvon Martin case is amazing! In addition to anti-self-defense groups, we have anti-gun groups, anti-some-other-race-or-ethnic-group groups, anti Neighborhood Watch groups also calling themselves anti-vigilante groups (at least anti some vigilantes), and pro-Police State groups. All of them essentially avoid the facts of the two human beings involved and wave their particular group’s flag. It is surprising it has not yet been used to sell merchandise. Oh. Too late.

Transplant “priorities”: Would stripping the cloak of anonymity from those people who must be available 24/7 to make such decisions make it impossible to get the necessary professionals to accept such appointment? Who does that benefit?

2. Robocalls from pharmacies: I think these serve a legitimate purpose for some of the elderly. Perhaps the inquiry should not reveal the person’s name by way of inquiry, but only the name and dose of the medication. That’s specific enough to serve the purpose of identification, and unspecific enough to absolutely protect individual privacy.

3. So the New York TIme doesn’t like ALEC. That’s news? Picking our Walmart for speculation as to how it’s “…lobby and spend campaign contribution money…” on various issues “dovetail” with “…Wal-Mart’s obvious interest in confining sales of anything to established retailers…” is the “job” of left leaning media purported pundits to discover and reveal (if it’s newsworthy). To presume it anyone else’s business when it is NOT newsworthy is simply to unjustly dignify the intrusiveness of our already out-of-control “gossip society”.

Be careful what you ask for…you just may someday get it!
