You Must be Forced to Care.

(Originally posted 091914.  But now that we’ve graduated from Enterovirus to Measles… decided to revisit.)

There are Diseases in The World which Progressives believe have been left unaddressed by the Major World Powers.

The thinking goes that we, Lazy-Stupid-Spoiled Western Masses, simply don’t care if it doesn’t effect us. You can find evidence of this mindset within the fight against AIDS as well as other life threatening diseases…. Like Ebola.

And certain others such as the Enterovirus.

So how might a World Power (The United States) be motivated to address those sicknesses that have been Intentionally Ignored?

Import them.

Yes, that’s what I said…

Bring them here so We can experience them…  Some of us Die from them…  And All of us Fear them.

The contingency that subscribes to the idea we are ‘all citizens of the world’ is not beyond bringing sickness to our shores if it means we will devote our resources to fighting the illness’ we previously ignored.  In their mind, focusing on our own Problems First, while spending Energy on the Worlds Problems Second, is what makes America Terrible.  And they have anointed themselves ‘Enlightened’ Apostles of all that is Good and Just.  The Ends Justify the Means…

This leaves only one question.

How do you bring them here?

Simple.

Allow hundreds of thousands of people into the country without medical screening… all at once.  (All at once of course can mean over a period of a year or so when it comes to the grand scheme of things.)  Then disperse them at taxpayer expense throughout the country.

‘But this would never happen!’ you say…  I know you… and I know you’re saying it.

Well it’s happening, right now, as I tap this out.

The only real question left to the Left is ‘How do you make these new illnesses spread fast enough to completely refocus the National Energy onto defeating them?’

Make the people you let in be Childrenunaccompanied and unsupervised… then send them all over the country and Force our public school system to absorb Them.

‘But Who, In Their Right Mind, would do this?!’ you ask…  I also know you’re asking that…

Good Question.  Who Would do this?

Because whoever it is, is doing it right now.

And those who enable the doing will tell you it’s only ‘fair’ that we devote our abilities to helping those We chose not to help in the past.  Whether we like the outcome of doing so or not.

It’s for the Greater Good of All the Citizens of the World.

Sleep Well.

 

(Note: What better way to foment a Cry for Government Run Health Care, and Government Force, than a good old-fashioned Pandemic?  When it comes to the life of a child…)


My Halloween Costume…

This Year I’ve decided to Frequent all 17 of my favorite Bars and Bowling Ally’s as…

A Narcissistic Nurse!

The basic get up will be a Bicycle helmet, Tight Black yoga pants and a “Hope and Change 2012” button. (I thought about the white clad, sexy nurse, thing but it doesn’t really convey the true horror or instill the level of genuine fear I’m looking for.)

In preparation I spent this morning Sharing needles with a local prostitute. Then I had sex with her… him… hard to tell from the extensive festering sores. I did however ask if I could borrow some of the Atazanvir and Valtrex in his/her jeans pocket.

Not having time to visit West Africa I then decided to head down to the mission and have as many homeless men with respiratory problems cough on me as possible. Just to be sure I wasn’t wasting my time I had them hack directly into my mouth. In fairness, I only allowed 45 minutes of consistent wheezing and hacking before it felt like I had received the attention I was looking for. Wiping my face off, I returned home.

But not before I found sewer grate downtown and gave it a throughout licking.
For the record, I chose that particular one because it smelled most like urine, decay, mixed strangely with skittles.

Once home, I whipped out my wife’s yoga pants and winched them up around my big chunky butt.

I pulled out my light blue pullover and donned my kid’s bicycle helmet.  The Hope and Change button I had to borrow…

Gazing into the mirror I knew I’d achieved my goal.

So tonight I will head out and drink from everyone’s glass…

Share everyone’s food…

And Dance like there’s no tomorrow…

Then I’ll pass out those sweaty, overly long and oddly uncomfortable hugs with abundance!

You might be asking if there is any possibility I could be giving them all gifts that keep on giving?

May be… or may be not.

But it’s not really about them…

Happy Halloween!

I’ll be the one behind you sneezing on your neck.


Don’t Quarantine Me Bro!

A Medical Worker has been released from observation prior to the recognized Ebola incubation period after returning from West Africa.

Ms. Hickcox came back from West Africa and was quarantined for 7 days. During that period of time she secured a Lawyer.

The incubation period (as far as we can tell) for Ebola is currently at 21 days.

Ms. Hickcox has been released from the quarantine and ask politely to quarantine herself voluntarily at Home in Maine.

The White House believes this is the correct way to proceed.
The CDC, read White House, believes this is the correct way to proceed.

While Ms. Hickcox has said openly that she may, or may not, have Ebola… her treatment is uncalled for.

Clearly Nurse Hickcox believes the idea of quarantine for a disease that does not present for 21 days is inhumane… as she has stated.

And, She along with her lawyers promise to sue.

I would be lying if I said I was surprised…

However, isn’t her admission that she ‘may or may not’ have the disease exactly the reason for the quarantine?

I will ask all of you…

Is the inconvenience of an extra 14 days too much to ask if it saves the life of a single child?

Is the expectation that we treat rapidly fatal diseases for which we have no cure with extreme caution unreasonable if it could save the lives of our children?

Wouldn’t you expect Medical Personnel to ‘Do No Harm’ and err on the side of such caution?

And finally…

Wouldn’t you expect the White House to agree with such wisdom until we can get a better handle on a rapidly fatal disease… if not for us, for the children?

We have all heard this appeal for decades.  It has been used ad nauseam.

And yet, where are the hand wringing, bleeding heart, Liberal Leftists with their concern?

Are they too occupied with the latest, fresh from Latin America, killer of children called the Enterovirus D68?  Nope… not there either.

Is the Press voicing their concerns for the children?  Nope.

How about our President and his party who care about everything more than we do?  Nope.

So I guess “Equal Opportunity” now only applies to Deadly Communicable Diseases.

If not in America, then Where can a Killer Microbe get a Fair Shake?


Suspected Ebola Infected are Being Released from Hospitals

This Morning a Hospital in Santa Fe New Mexico released a patient who was exhibiting symptoms of EBOLA.

The reason given for this was the Individual had not traveled, nor been in contact with anyone who had traveled to West Africa (As far as they knew.).

That was the Only Reason given for their release.

Well, no worries then.

Although this assumes one must have traveled to, or been in contact with someone who had traveled to, West Africa recently.

Thus this assumes no intent regarding the spread of this virus or any one of the Hemorrhagic variants.

This assumes Bad Guys, like the myriad of Terrorist A-Holes, are not actively working to kill us. Or… they’re not trying to simply overwhelm our Medical System and/or create General Panic here on US soil.

I am of the camp that Panic is futile. But Concern tempered with a little Fear has no downside.

I also believe that there are people out there who want us dead for no other reason than we are currently not so.

So I ask…

Wouldn’t Prudence dictate that individuals infected with anything close to this disease be watched a little more closely and at least quarantined for the couple of weeks necessary to see what happens? Couldn’t this be set up somewhere outside of the hospital? Make it fun even? Somehow I suspect one’s employer would approve of a couple of weeks AWAY from work to be stationed in a hotel in which you can not leave because YOU MIGHT HAVE A RAPIDLY FATAL COMMUNICABLE DISEASE which Health Professionals are now suspecting is ready to ‘Go Airborne’.

Or may be not.

We all know Rich, Greedy, Self Absorbed Leaders don’t care about those under them. And since they’re always on the Golf Course… they’ll never get it.  And clearly They don’t… get it.

Just a thought.

Oh… and the Borders are still Open with Floods of Medically Unscreened Illegal Immigrants arriving here by the minute. And Children are Dying as I tap this out from the highly communicable disease Enterovirus D68.

Oh… and for some reason this Administration will not decouple Arriving and Departing flights in order to restrict ARRIVING flights from West Africa.  In other words, the idea of allowing the best and brightest Medical Folks to go for the moment, with the understanding they don’t get to come back for a while, is completely out of the question.

It seems to me, just like defending our Diplomats Overseas, all of this appears to have never before been thought about by this current group of Ostriches occupying the highest offices.

As a Reminder,

The country is 238 years old… We have been dealing with Ebola since it was classified in 1976. We have experienced pandemics like the Spanish Flu 100-years ago which killed over 675,000 Americans. And, just like leaving our Diplomats to Die in Benghazi, it’s like we’ve never encountered such dangers and we’re learning as we go.

The Official position to everything over the last 6-years has been “Who knew it could get this Bad?”

I guess you can’t blame them if this is all new.  How Could they know?  Right?

So never mind.

Cheer up, If it goes South it will be your fault.


Think Ebola

Why would “Think Ebola” be appropriate for Health Care Facilities Nation Wide, but not for the General Public?

So, in other words, if you work in a hospital you should be thinking about Ebola.

And if you don’t work in a hospital… no worries.  You’ll be fine as long as you don’t think about Ebola.

If there has ever been an illustration of how Government cannot handle a crisis, this is it.

And I haven’t started on a very real Killer which is approaching epidemic levels called the Enterovirus D68. It’s here and it’s already killed 6… 4 of which were young children.

You must ask “Why?”.

I offer that ramping up the level of concern being experienced by the American Public will lead to obvious questions the current Administration and Political Party in Charge do not want asked.

Such as:

Why have we not secured the borders and continue to allow medically unscreened illegal immigrants into the United States and then fly them where ever they wish while placing the children into public schools across the nation?

Or,

Why have we not simply stopped incoming flights from West Africa?

Or,

Do you think the Terrorist’s are watching this?

And then come the profoundly enlightening if not horribly uncomfortable answers:

The Democrat Party refuses to secure the borders because the future of Socialism in America depends on a brand new class of taxpayer-funded welfare addicts who will always vote for them… damn the health consequences.

The Administration does not want to do anything which could be positioned as ‘racist’, which stopping those who are traveling from West Africa might imply.  But the most obvious result of stopping those flights would be to lead all of us immediately back to the first question regarding our borders, and that cannot be allowed to happen… damn the health consequences.

And, of course the Terrorists are watching… and learning. We are doing nothing because it’s not in the best interest of those who want to control us.

Damn all of the Consequences.
