Ebola: Rightwingers need to STFD and STFU

Here's a message to you rightwingnutjobs who are running off at the mouth about EBOLA!! QUARANTINE!! OHMYGODWEALLAREGOINGTODIE!!!!  BAN FLIGHTS!!

With one exception, the only people in the USofA to come down with ebola are nurses and physicians -- you know, educated people with scientific backgrounds, who care for others.  You rightwingerdingers are in no danger.

Go back to watching the Sarah Palin Channel.

How many ebola cases have occurred in the USofA?

As of 27 October, in the USA:

-- Kim Kardashian has had more husbands than there have been ebola deaths in the US.

-- Donald Trump has had more bankruptcies than there have been ebola cases in the US.

How about we quarantine Trump and Kardashian to protect us from REAL infections??

Dozens declared free of risk of ebola -- will Fox headline this fact 24/7??

The dozens of people who had direct or indirect contact with the guy who died of ebola in Texas have been declared free of the virus after 21 days of quarantine.

At least one chapter of the Ebola saga neared a close Sunday, as most of the dozens of people who had direct or indirect contact here with Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died of Ebola, had been told by officials that they were no longer at risk of contracting the disease. 
Mr. Duncan’s fiancĂ©e, Louise Troh, who nursed him in their cramped apartment while he suffered from diarrhea and who was put under state-ordered quarantine, was set to be declared Ebola-free by officials at the end of Sunday. So, too, were the paramedics who drove an ailing Mr. Duncan to a hospital and health care workers who drew or processed his blood. And a mandatory quarantine was lifted for a homeless man who later rode in the same ambulance as Mr. Duncan before it was disinfected. 
The 21-day monitoring period ended Sunday and Monday for nearly all the roughly 50 people. It concludes as federal health officials are tightening the guidelines for the protective gear worn by health care workers treating Ebola patients. 

Hmmmm.  Let's see -- all the folks who contacted, directly or indirectly the ONE person who died of ebola are okay.  The lady on the bus who vomited and claimed she had recently returned from West Africa was lying.  The Spanish nurse who claimed to have been exposed is free of the disease.  Two people remain hospitalized in Atlanta, both of them are expected to survive.

Will Fox report this news with the same shrieking and hand-wringing as they reported the "ebola outbreak?"

You know the answer to that.

Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, and Republican lies

Even today, Jimmy Carter has not recovered from the right-wing attacks upon his character in 1980. They were able to portray him as the weakest President in history, who was weak in foreign policy and in economic policies at home. In fact:

  •  It was his efforts that got the Camp David accords and agreement between Begin and Sadat.
  •  It was his energy policy that was adopted by Reagan and served us well for several years.
  •  It was his honesty that was needed after Watergate and the corruption and criminality in the White House under Nixon. 

But, because of the Iran hostage crisis, the Republicans painted him as weak and unable to govern. Eventually, the hostages came home, after Reagan was elected. But they were not killed, as were the 241 service members in Beirut that were car-bombed under Reagan's incompetence. 

Today, they are doing the same type of character assassination against Barack Obama. And, just like with Jimmy Carter, they are succeeding. "Obama is weak. He is incompetent. He is a liar. He is not even an American". And so forth, and so forth... 

When in fact, Barack Obama is one of the most involved foreign policy Presidents we have had in a very long time. He has spent most of his time in office cleaning up the mess and disasters left behind by Bush, Cheney, and the Republican war mongers. History will probably record that his major accomplishment in office was in keeping the country from going under after the disastrous market and housing crash of 2008? But, the right-wing will never mention that as they continue to tear him down and to obstruct every idea that he might propose.

Are you mad yet?

If you are not angry now, you will be after watching this:

Police reports of the Palin family's drunken brawl

Several weeks ago, reports emerged from Alaska of a birthday party in Anchorage that erupted into a wild, drunken melee when the entire Palin family -- including 5-year-old Tripp -- arrived at the party in a white Hummer lino.  According to witnesses, the entire Palin family was shit-faced drunk (well, maybe the 5-year-old was sober).  The family then proceeded to start a huge brawl that ended with:

--  son Track Palin shirtless, bleeding from several places, standing the street giving the world the middle finger and swearing;

-- daughters Bristol and Willow punching the homeowner repeatedly in the face while calling all the women at the party the C-word;

-- Sarah Palin shrieking "Do you know who we are?"

-- And several people at the party shouting "Get the f*** out of here, this is not your hillbilly reality show!!"

Now the complete Anchorage Police Department reports are online.  Read them here:

My favorite line from the police reports describes Bristol Palin's encounter with one of the people at the party, after she had punched him in the face several times:

"Korey had drug (sic) her across the lawn by her legs and was calling her a cunt and a slut."

And that, folks, is the family that almost became the Vice-President of the US.  Thanks, John McCain, for inflicting this pack of trash on the rest of the country.
