Most Westerners don’t know how good they have it
Burma
Oct 20 2014 - Times Union, Albany NY by Los Angeles Times
For years, the government of Myanmar has treated its Rohingya Muslim people as intruders — an impoverished minority among a Buddhist majority, considered illegal immigrants, restricted in where they can live and work. The United Nations considers them one of the most persecuted groups in the world. Even as Myanmar has liberalized its political system, moving from military rule to democracy, the government has declined to ease its treatment of the Rohingya despite constant urging to do so by the human rights community and U.S. officials.
Editor's Comments:
I don't think that is such a bad idea. If Muslims can't accept the government where they chose to live, too bad. bbm

Congress 2014
Oct 21 2014 - Town Hall by Hugh Hewitt
Apple yesterday blew past the expectations that analysts had already put pretty high up on the board for the company, and so it will be rewarded with even more support in the market. That's the way it works in the final stages of campaigns as well. Those candidates that have momentum build on it, and though polls might lag as much as analysts' estimates, the candidates and their supporters feel the win coming, the opponents know they are losing, and existing separations grow larger. Sometimes there are nasty surprises, just as there are with earnings, and sometimes candidates blow past expectations set by flawed polling just as Apple beat estimates Monday. For the most part, though, two weeks out from voting, candidates know.

Scotland’s vote for independence resulted in a negative. There won’t be, for now, further discussions about what Scotland should do with its monetary institutions. Still, there is one more issue that I would like to discuss, because it transcends the particular case of Scotland, had independence been the result of the vote.
Federal Reserve issues
Oct 20 2014 - Front Page Magazine by Bruce Thornton
At a conference last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen recycled a shopworn Democrat talking point about the supposed crisis of income inequality and stalled economic mobility. “The extent and continuing increase in inequality in the United States greatly concerns me,” Yellen said, going on to wonder “whether this trend is compatible with values rooted in our nation’s history,” especially “equality of opportunity.”

Our Own Hundred Years? War
Oct 20 2014 - Front Page Magazine by Daniel Greenfield
However the US campaign against ISIS goes, the beneficiaries will be its Sunni Muslim allies who are also doubling as our allies. While on the surface ISIS appears to have cut all ties, threatening even former allies like Turkey and Qatar, underneath the surface the pragmatic connections remain as strong as ever.
Oct 20 2014 - Front Page Magazine by Joseph Puder
The struggle for Kobani, the Syrian Kurdish town on the border with Turkey where the Kurdish forces alone are battling the barbaric hordes of the Islamic State, aka ISIS, is reminiscent of the Polish uprising in Warsaw against the Nazis in August, 1944. While the Polish Home Army fought courageously against the might of the superior armed Nazis, the Soviet Union’s Red Army stood by across the River Vistula, which divides Warsaw, watching the merciless slaughter of Polish civilians and the destruction of the city.

Ebola
Oct 21 2014 - News With Views by Frosty Wooldridge
Continuing to allow airplane flights into America loaded with people streaming out of Ebola–ravaged Africa must be about the dumbest act that Congress, the Center for Disease Control and Barack Obama could possibly perpetrate on the American people.
Editor's Comments:
We are just inviting trouble by allowing flights from Ebola–infected countries into the U.S. What is Obama's agenda anyway? I shudder to think that it is intentional that he allow us to be exposed unnecessarily. My stepdaughter is an ER doctor in L.A. Governor Brown recently mandated that her hospital and one other Kaiser facility in the area be designated as Ebola centers. Just wonderful! js

Gay rights
Oct 21 2014 - Town Hall by Cal Thomas

Houston recently passed an ordinance through its city council that has sparked quite a bit of controversy amongst conservative evangelicals. The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), a broad–sweeping, left–leaning law trumpeted by the City of Houston and its openly gay mayor, Annise Parker, is supposed to protect gay, lesbian and transgender people from discrimination. All well and good, but according to the Independent Journal Review, the ordinance to ensure nondiscrimination, discriminates against those of faith who oppose it.
