This is about children’s health
Thank you, Bob Massaro, for your editorial about youth vaping and tobacco use. Yes, it is absolutely about the long term health of children now, and in the future.
Pick cabinet based on talent, not diversity
Joe Biden has pledged to nominate the most diverse cabinet in history. Period! He will include Blacks based on color. He will appoint women based on sex. He will include LGBT based on sexual preference. Well if that isn’t racism and sexism, then what is?
What is this obsession with diversity? Why are we so obsessed with including what turns out to be minority groups which often have goals and ideals that do not in any way align with the majority? Yes, I can see acceptance. Yes, I can see not locking them out if they are qualified in fields of interest. They may have unique ideas. No one should be automatically excluded.
But why are we moving all these people into positions of authority based on their diversity rather than their talents? Job qualifications should be based on knowledge and experience in the field of interest, talent, skill, and creativity. Why does diversity move people to the head of the line in departments they are not qualified for? Susan Rice? Remember Benghazi! What special qualification does Pete Buttigieg have? Is John Kerry a climate expert? Give me a break! Just look at the police departments that are mismanaged. Political correctness is destroying America.
In my opinion Biden’s choices are mostly based on political correctness. These are people that half of the nation cannot respect! Want to bring us together? Make cabinet choices that we all can respect. Diversity programs should be focused on preventing exclusion. They should not be focused on inclusion quotas.
Joe Biden should lead the country, not the coalition of special interest groups that make up the Democratic Party. Come on, man!
