    Laws can be changed

    Amid the current government brinksmanship over Obamacare, a rallying cry typical of many supporters has been, “It’s the law of the land.” For instance Al Gore struck the theme last week in a highly inflammatory speech at the Brookings Institution that went something like as follows:

    Paul’s latest goof

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul wants federal employees to be treated just like other citizens when it comes to implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In fact, he is planning on pushing for a constitutional amendment that would outlaw any exemption from the ACA for federal employees.

    This past month has brought us two mass shootings which at first consideration would seem to have little to do with one another. The twelve people murdered at the Washington, D.C., Naval Yard were the victims of Aaron Alexis, a Navy veteran who was said to be mentally ill.

    Something to think about

    Food for thought: We can afford to send three council members to Japan, but can’t fix the city pool? I have a problem with that.

    Case not proven

    Evolution is widely accepted and almost universally taught as science, but it is not.

    It is true a certain butterfly or bird or other organism that wanders into a new environment will undergo gradual changes, and then we (homo sapiens) give it a new species name.

    Some collaboration required

    As we all know in recent times we have had a government behaving much like a dysfunctional family. The Democrats and Republicans both blame each other for state of the economy and other key items in our daily lives. When our government cannot work together toward a common goal will we reach the same levels of despair as in other parts of the world?

    Grasping at straws

    In the 1960’s television series “Bewitched,” a character named Mrs. Kravitz constantly spied on her neighbors, obsessing over their behavior and certain that something was amiss. Problem is, she never was able to convince her husband that there was anything newsworthy going on, and in fact her husband generally dismissed her as being nuts.

    Gun solution that respects 2nd amendment

    President Obama recently stated that, in the face of increasing gun violence, the road to stricter gun control laws should obsess us. Many people, along with the NRA, believe that our second amendment right to bear arms is important and should be protected, with the problem being that too many mentally ill people continue to have access to guns. I agree that the second amendment grants us an important right, and I have a suggestion that addresses both viewpoints.

    Pipeline problems

    I saw the Williams pipeline’s cheery ad in Sunday’s The News-Enterprise. Maybe instead of the ad copy there should be the caption “Head for the Hills.” 

    That was the message on shirts worn by some of the pipeline’s protesters recently, a play on words from a Williams pipeline information sheet: “Actions to take in the event of a leak.”

    Disguised meaning

    Clifford May’s column, “Putin Plans to diminish the US and Obama” was an attack on Putin’s plan to avoid war cleverly disguised as an attack on Putin.

    Here’s what May really means:
