Bigotry Against Muslim’s Alive and Well…

In a World where I can ‘Identify’ as a Female while being a Male… In a World where I can call myself ‘Black’ while being ‘White’… In a World where I can say out loud that I’m not a Socialist even though my actions Betray me…  In a World where I, and I alone, am allowed to define myself regardless of my beliefs, behavior or physical make-up…

And all of you, ALL OF YOU, are Required to believe me…

Why is it when those who commit crimes and Justify them with Their Professed Religion do we not apply the same Requirement?

Why?

Because they are Muslim.

Our attitudes clearly demonstrate we are all Anti-Muslim.

This ugly prejudice, or bias, is only directed at Muslim’s… and it Must Be Stopped.

It’s disgraceful.

If a Criminal commits a Crime and Claims it is in the name of their Religion, we should take them at their word, exactly like we are expected to behave in All Other Matters.

We must, as a Nation, come together and change our Evil behavior.

We must give others the respect they deserve.

“Send Them Your Heads!”

Seeing a Clear Need for a new, more nuanced, Radical Muslim Outreach Campaign, the Obama Administration will be offering a way for the American Public to get behind efforts already being employed.

What will be considered a supplement to Destroying our relationship with Israel, Arming ISIS with Stinger missiles, staying out of ISIS’ way in Middle East and promising a Nuclear Iran, The Obama Administration is crafting a new program called “Send Them Your Heads!”.

The motivation behind this latest taxpayer-funded Muslim Outreach Effort is to allow ISIS, and all of their affiliates, time to work on issues State Department officials deem important in the Middle East like physical, educational and political infrastructure improvements as well as Job Creation. It has been estimated, by all economists everywhere, a Single Minute saved by not having to Set on Fire, Throw off buildings, Stone and Behead Infidels results in a Full Hour of productivity that can be applied to ‘other things’.

If you’re interested in participating in this Outreach Campaign, please contact your local Post Master for packaging and shipping details. (Cost may vary depending on size, weight and distance to recipient.  DHS has also advised participants that having a partner to assist you will be important, and if you cannot find assistance in completing the process they, DHS personnel, will be happy to help.  DHS officials also stated that there is no need to wait for the Administration to get this program approved, and funded, as they expect resistance from the Republican Controlled ‘Do Nothing’ Congress. They have some shipping materials available and will provide them at no cost to qualified applicants.)

According to the issued Press Release, The White House is proud to be promoting the new initiative with the blessings of domestic Muslim advocacy groups in addition to representatives from ISIS, ISIL, IS, Al Qaeda and a number of Iraqi and Syrian ‘community’ organizations among the other Partners in Peace Coalition.

The release also states “Send Them Your Heads!” will be exclusively administered by the Department of Homeland Security and The United States Post Office and will be limited to Legal U.S. citizens only.

When we contacted DHS officials for comment, it was stressed the overall message they wanted to convey is the “Importance of Getting along with those who are different from us. We are all citizens of the World.”

In response to our e-mail inquiry, Postal Representatives claimed to have no knowledge of this new program but stated the importance of following shipping guidelines for human remains.  They said they would prefer packing to be complete prior to participants reaching the postal centers, and guidelines were available at USPS.com for download.

So if you’re one of us, asking yourself “What Can I Do to Make them Like Me?”

Now there’s a way.

(Note: One of the economists we spoke with explained the added benefit to the U.S. unemployment number that will be realized by tangibly removing individuals from the work force. Administration officials declined to comment only giving us a ‘thumbs up’ while holding a poorly drawn sign which stated “#Sendthemyourhead”.)

The Shameful Darkness of Republicans

“(President Obama) denounced Republican candidates, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
and Jeb Bush, who propose that the United States should primarily focus on accepting Christian refugees, criticizing Obama’s unwillingness to address the threat of terrorists coming overseas as refugees.  “That’s shameful. That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion,” he said angrily.”

President Obama focused his anger on those Leaders in Congress, and jeb, who are calling for a prioritization of efforts to expedite refugee status for Christians coming from Syria.

Mr. Obama “…cautioned political leaders “not to fall into that trap” of refusing to accept refugees, and to “not to feed that dark impulse inside of us.”

It’s worth noting makeaneffort cannot find an example of the outright refusal of accepting refugees being implemented or even suggested by any Leaders in Congress, or jeb, we will take the President at his word it must be happening.

Exploring the President’s point regarding the horrid blackness that poisons men’s minds…

Can you imagine what it would have been like if the United States had prioritized evacuating Jews from Germany in the 30’s when they were being systematically left to die in cattle cars, crushed in showers and forced to breathe poison gas, or being shot on sight?  Or if the United States had committed the sin of focusing their efforts to save Political enemies of Communism from the Soviet Death Squads who fertilized the Steppes with 10’s of Millions of those who disagreed with Forced March FORWARD! to the Socialist Utopia?

Indeed Mr. Obama, moving groups of people to the front of the line who are being specifically targeted for Death is a Dark Place to go.  At this point in History it happens to be Christians, Jews and Homosexuals.  If this desire to do so doesn’t prove once and for all that Republicans are Evil, I don’t know what does.

We should stand with the President and refuse to make such considerations.  In fact, we should look past the overwhelming number of military aged men who make up the vast majority of ‘refugees’ flooding the Western Countries of the World.  Some Leaders in Congress, and jeb, have Shamefully suggested these young war fighting aged men be given additional scrutiny before allowing them to roam freely throughout the United States.  But we must stand strong with our President and steadfastly refuse to make any inquiry into why metrics related to the groups of refugees demonstrate such clear Racism and Misogyny.

Bare in mind, if terrorism breaks out due to the policies of this Administration they will finally have the impetus to disarm all of us.

Never let a good crisis go to waste…

Particularly when you’ve spending so much time and energy creating it.

 


The Battle to Control Speech

Or,

Drawing on Pictures of Mohammed

In case you’ve been immersed in the latest happenings on the Transgender Transformation Front and missed what Pamela Geller’s ‘Draw Mohammed’ Contest has provoked… allow me to catch you up.

Pamela Geller held a ‘Draw Mohammed’ Contest.

Two Terrorist A-Holes decided they were going to show up and kill Everyone.

Both Terrorist A-Holes were shot dead by a Gun Clinging Texas Cop (Who probably thought they were Black Guys just minding their own business, and shot them as a matter of protocol.).

The Leftists from every corner of the political spectrum (Right, Left, CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC, The Catholic Church, Republicans, Democrats, etc. etc. etc.) are blaming Pamela Geller.  I mean, Did you See The Way She Was Dressed!?  She was ASKING FOR IT!

The AP is lamenting the demise of the Terrorist A-Holes… seriously.  They have decided to own the position that the deaths of two Terrorist A-Holes, who couldn’t stand the insult of a cartoon and decided to try to kill a bunch of people, is a tragedy.  (If that’s not an open illustration of ‘who you can trust’ I don’t know what is.)

That about sums it up.

If you think you are entering a world with no elements of reason,

I would have to agree with you.

Frankly, Pamela Geller’s group should be receiving federal NEA dollars for her contest. That would be a consistent start to the conversation as it would ‘level the playing field’ with all those artists who have legitimized their ‘art’ by intentionally provoking every other religious institution found in the United States (except Islam).

Or, inversely, removing Federal Tax Dollars from ALL arts and returning the market dynamic to the Artistic Process as it has been for Thousands of Years.  Think that redistributing your hard-earned money to Feces Covered paintings of the Virgin Mary is good Government?  Quick… think of an Artistic Masterpiece!  Hold that image in your mind… There were no Government subsidies for that piece of work.  Someone purchased it, with intent.  Or, it was created with the hope someone would.  It was not blindly funded.

Either Way,

Provoking religious institutions is PROTECTED SPEECH… just as the religious institutions existence IS PROTECTED.  So important is this… IT COMES FIRST in the Bill of Rights!

What is profoundly fascinating?

This event has drawn out the Leftist Religious types (Cardinal Dolan) to illustrate the hypocrisy I just tapped out, but instead of using it as an example of how we all must tolerate such provocation… they demand Drawing Mohammed Pictures be classified as “Hate Speech” in order to control it.  Cardinal Dolan is Jealous.

In other words, Socialists of all flavors see the danger in defending Pamela Geller… The are in a desperate, twisted, position.

If They defend her, as they should, they undermine the control of speech they have worked so diligently to secure. Remember, Political Correctness favors those who cannot argue their ideas on the merits of reason and rational.  So… What Control the Leftists currently have must be preserved… no matter how insipid they may sound when they say it out loud…

But the Left is not content to simply hold on to their current suppression of your Free Speech Rights, they wish to expand upon it.

Those coming out of the woodwork see the danger presented in this debate, and must move the window in their direction by arguing for yet More Restrictive Measures to be applied to what you may, and may not, say.  Cardinal Dolan is not demanding tolerance for those who Draw Pictures of Mohammed… he is lobbying for the Ability to Quash those who would provoke the Catholic Church.  And, amusingly, the very Leftist ‘artists’ who were insulting The Church just yesterday are siding with Dolan today.  It’s not because they are ignorant… well, they clearly are… but rather because what’s at risk here is control over what you say.

The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend.

Strange Bedfellows indeed…

This event is allowing us a rare glimpse into the hearts and minds of those we might otherwise trust. Real time.

It is serving to flush out those talking heads, and ideological Icons, who profess to be, but in reality are not, excited about adhering to the Constitution of the United States and The Bill of Rights.

I believe these are the most dangerous among us… as they hide behind words we agree with, but their actions serve to undermine our Freedoms.  They support only the speech they agree with, and fight only the battles that have no meaningful outcome in regard to protecting our Freedom and Liberty.

If you decide to pay attention to this story, you may be surprised by who comes to the defense of Pamela Geller… and more importantly… Who does Not.

Pamela Geller is offensive to those on the Left not because she is provoking Islam, but exactly because she is attacking the gains the Left has made in Controlling Speech.

And for that… she must be destroyed.

In this upside down world,

It demands Progressive Liberals argue against the very provocative tactics the they have used for decades to push their Democratic Socialist agenda Forward!

It also serves to reveal the true faces of those who would otherwise hide behind the Labels of ‘Conservative’ and ‘Republican’.

It Forces Honesty… which is the sunlight that sends the Enemies of the Individual scurrying.


Good News out of Kansas!

Typhoid Fever

General Information

Typhoid fever is a life-threatening illness caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi. In the United States, it is estimated that approximately 5,700 cases occur annually.  Most cases (up to 75%) are acquired while traveling internationally. Typhoid fever is still common in the developing world, where it affects about 21.5 million persons each year.

Typhoid fever can be prevented and can usually be treated with antibiotics. If you are planning to travel outside the United States, you should know about typhoid fever and what steps you can take to protect yourself.

How is typhoid fever spread?

Salmonella Typhi lives only in humans. Persons with typhoid fever carry the bacteria in their bloodstream and intestinal tract. In addition, a small number of persons, called carriers, recover from typhoid fever but continue to carry the bacteria. Both ill persons and carriers shed Salmonella Typhi in their feces (stool).

You can get typhoid fever if you eat food or drink beverages that have been handled by a person who is shedding Salmonella Typhi or if sewage contaminated with Salmonella Typhi bacteria gets into the water you use for drinking or washing food. Therefore, typhoid fever is more common in areas of the world where handwashing is less frequent and water is likely to be contaminated with sewage.

Once Salmonella Typhi bacteria are eaten or drunk, they multiply and spread into the bloodstream. The body reacts with fever and other signs and symptoms.

Where in the world do you get typhoid fever?

Typhoid fever is common in most parts of the world except in industrialized regions such as the United States, Canada, western Europe, Australia, and Japan. Therefore, if you are traveling to the developing world, you should consider taking precautions. Over the past 10 years, travelers from the United States to Asia, Africa, and Latin America have been especially at risk.

How can you avoid typhoid fever?

Two basic actions can protect you from typhoid fever:

  1. Avoid risky foods and drinks.
  2. Get vaccinated against typhoid fever.

It may surprise you, but watching what you eat and drink when you travel is as important as being vaccinated. This is because the vaccines are not completely effective. Avoiding risky foods will also help protect you from other illnesses, including travelers’ diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, and hepatitis A.

“Boil it, cook it, peel it, or forget it”
  • If you drink water, buy it bottled or bring it to a rolling boil for 1 minute before you drink it. Bottled carbonated water is safer than uncarbonated water.
  • Ask for drinks without ice unless the ice is made from bottled or boiled water. Avoid popsicles and flavored ices that may have been made with contaminated water.
  • Eat foods that have been thoroughly cooked and that are still hot and steaming.
  • Avoid raw vegetables and fruits that cannot be peeled. Vegetables like lettuce are easily contaminated and are very hard to wash well.
  • When you eat raw fruit or vegetables that can be peeled, peel them yourself. (Wash your hands with soap first.) Do not eat the peelings.
  • Avoid foods and beverages from street vendors. It is difficult for food to be kept clean on the street, and many travelers get sick from food bought from street vendors.

Getting vaccinated

If you are traveling to a country where typhoid is common, you should consider being vaccinated against typhoid. Visit a doctor or travel clinic to discuss your vaccination options.

Remember that you will need to complete your vaccination at least 1-2 weeks (dependent upon vaccine type) before you travel so that the vaccine has time to take effect. Typhoid vaccines lose effectiveness after several years; if you were vaccinated in the past, check with your doctor to see if it is time for a booster vaccination. Taking antibiotics will not prevent typhoid fever; they only help treat it.

The chart below provides basic information on typhoid vaccines that are available in the United States.

Table 1: Typhoid Vaccines Available in the United States
Vaccine Name How Given Number of Doses Necessary Time Between Doses Time immunization should be completed by (before possible exposure) Minimum Age For Vaccination Booster Needed Every…
Ty21a (Vivotif Berna, Swiss Serum and Vaccine Institute) 1 capsule by mouth 4 2 days 1 week 6 years 5 years
ViCPS (Typhim Vi, Pasteur Merieux) Injection 1 N/A 2 weeks 2 years 2 years

The parenteral heat-phenol-inactivated vaccine (manufactured by Wyeth-Ayerst) has been discontinued.

What are the signs and symptoms of typhoid fever?

Persons with typhoid fever usually have a sustained fever as high as 103° to 104° F (39° to 40° C). They may also feel weak, or have stomach pains, headache, or loss of appetite. In some cases, patients have a rash of flat, rose-colored spots. The only way to know for sure if an illness is typhoid fever is to have samples of stool or blood tested for the presence of Salmonella Typhi.

What do you do if you think you have typhoid fever?

If you have a high fever and feel very ill, see a doctor immediately. If you are traveling in a foreign country, you can usually call the U.S. consulate for a list of recommended doctors.

Typhoid fever is treated with antibiotics. Resistance to multiple antibiotics is increasing among Salmonella that cause typhoid fever. Reduced susceptibility to fluoroquinolones (e.g., ciprofloxacin) and the emergence of multidrug-resistance has complicated treatment of infections, especially those acquired in South Asia. Antibiotic susceptibility testing may help guide appropriate therapy. Choices for antibiotic therapy include fluoroquinolones (for susceptible infections), ceftriaxone, and azithromycin. Persons who do not get treatment may continue to have fever for weeks or months, and as many as 20% may die from complications of the infection.

Typhoid fever’s danger doesn’t end when symptoms disappear

Even if your symptoms seem to go away, you may still be carrying Salmonella Typhi. If so, the illness could return, or you could pass the disease to other people. In fact, if you work at a job where you handle food or care for small children, you may be barred legally from going back to work until a doctor has determined that you no longer carry any typhoid bacteria.

If you are being treated for typhoid fever, it is important to do the following:

Keep taking the prescribed antibiotics for as long as the doctor has asked you to take them.

Wash your hands carefully with soap and water after using the bathroom, and do not prepare or serve food for other people. This will lower the chance that you will pass the infection on to someone else.

Have your doctor perform a series of stool cultures to ensure that no Salmonella Typhi bacteria remain in your body.

Ummm…. Probably just a ‘Normal’ case.  And Securing our Borders would have no effect one way or the other.

So, Good News!

Just curious, Did your kids get that Typhoid Vaccination before the beginning of the School Year?

I’m not sayin’… I’m just sayin’… may be you oughta’ think ’bout it.


Islamic State Militants Advance Despite Airstrikes: ‘Most of the eastern and southern parts of the city have fallen under the ISIS control…the situation is getting worse’

ISIS Gains Territory Despite Weeks of Bombing by U.S., Allies, Raising Questions About Strategy

For WSJ, Margaret Coker in Erbil, Iraq, Jay Solomon in Cairo and Tamer El-Ghobashy in Baghdad report: Islamic State militants have gained territory in Iraq and Syria despite weeks of bombing by the U.S. and its allies, raising questions about the coalition’s strategy of trying to blunt the jihadists’ advance while local forces are being trained to meet the threat on the ground.

“The strategy’s biggest weakness in Iraq, officials there say, is the glacial pace of cobbling together an Iraqi political alliance between Sunnis willing to join with the Shiite-controlled central government to rebuild a national military force to fight Islamic State more effectively.”

In Syria, fighters from Islamic State, also known as ISIS, have taken large sections of the city of Kobani in recent days, said Ismet Sheikh Hasan, the defense minister of the city’s…

The Middle East Solution

I propose we solve the Middle East violence through a program of Understanding.

Here in the United States we have an abundance of Well Trained, Amazingly Equipped and Overly Funded Diversity Trainers.  (It’s worth noting that many of these same people are cross-trained in Sexual Harassment Education and Gender Sensitivity Issues.  All Added Value as far as my Proposal is concerned.)

I cannot believe it would take much to initiate a Mission composed of the Majority of these ‘Special Operators’ to head over to Syria and Iraq to impose Mandatory Diversity Training.  We can even make sure they wear comfortable shoes so they don’t challenge the President’s ‘No Boots on the Ground’ edict.

Finally, Taxpayer Dollars well spent.

And, Once all sides understand the Value of Diversity… Problem Solved… Forever.

Peace will be experienced throughout the land.

(There could be an obvious upside for those of us here in the U.S. if it doesn’t work out… but I’ll leave that for you guys to figure out.)

There is No Time to Waste.

Isn’t it worth the Life of a Child?

So let’s get started!
