    * More people infected in Texas as a result of our (lack of) Ebola travel policy. The list of the sick grows.

    * CDC will now offer phone support if your facility is under siege from the virus. Thanks a lot, US government.

    * The Plague virus has been discovered on fleas in Arizona. As though Ebola is not bad enough, the Black Death is in our Southwest.

    * Enterovirus D68 continues to ravage children across the country. Kids are dying nationwide.

    The plague was always been in the southwest. I got a flyer on the plague while backpacking back in the 80's from the forest service. It said to avoid squirrels and crap like that.

    Another nurse is sick. Nurse's union says they were using paper masks and trying to tape closed large holes in whatever crappy suits they were wearing. Before this outbreak you needed bio-safety level IV lab (highest) to work with Ebola.

    Imagine what will happen when the Ebola patients show up at family doctors' offices and clinics. Those places will be wiped out.

    some health expert from PBS yammering on about how restricting travel won't work, without explaining why of course and that we have to TRUST that people will be truthful when they are asked questions.

    :rofl:

    fuck i hate progressives.

    This seems to be the "liberal" point of view, but there's not an ounce of reasoning or support for the position. As far as I can tell, they don't want to trap the infected people in the shithole countries. They want the infected people to be free to infect the rest of us.

    The incompetence is breathtaking, but the lies are the most disturbing part of the whole thing.

    The way Obama has handled Ebola is a disaster, just like every fucking thing he does is a disaster. Is Obama an incompetent fool, or is it intentional

    This guy, Dr Friedan has been reading the Obama administration's propaganda script every day. Practically everything this guy has said has proved to be wrong, and this is no small matter

    That guy is fucking dense and a perfect representative for the Obama team.


    I doubt he could find the deli section in a supermarket, even if he had a map and a hungry dog.

    What is exactly is the role of customs/passport control?

    It would seem that this is pretty easy to stop. It's not like they can build some sort of raft and float over here like a Cuban.

    I'm leaning more on the Big Pharma Industrial Complex replacing the Military Industrial Complex as the reason the White House is purposely introducing these viruses into the U.S.

    So what stocks should we be loading up on because we all know a certain black family owns them big now?

    The problem really isn't so much with the USA.

    The rest of the world is fucked, and that'll blow back onto us. There will be chaos, and wars over every grievance you can imagine. The Russians have now been completely backed into a corner as the ruble is at historic lows and they've lost 80% of the profits from oil sales (their main export).


    The price of gas and oil is plummeting every day. While there may be some (explainable) reasons for it, I worry that the REAL reason for it is that there won't be much need for gas and oil for the next few years. If ever.

    Bill Clinton was supposedly nearly broke when he left the White House. Now he's worth over $100 million.

    How did that happen?

    Oil prices are NOT based on supply and demand. At least not currently. It is based on the fiat dollar.

    Over 50% of a barrel of oil Isnt used for fuel. It's used for plastics and chemicals. There is no way a resource like that sees its demand fall 4% in a single day.

    I am convinced the price of oil is plummeting to give the Dems a chance at the mid terms. The markets can be easily manipulated. Soros has done it many times, for example.

    dems fight tooth and nail to keep non green energy from being produced, the evil pipeline from canada, the war on coal etc., yet will take credit for our nice increase in usable resources that they fought tooth and nail against.

    i hate them. :)

    Remember! We don't want to stop flights, because people might try to sneak in and hide their illness! :grad:

    And we certainly don't want to offend any of those governments! :nono:


    Just continue to ask the arrivals if they are sick or if they've been exposed to the virus, honesty and trust is always the best defense! :hippie:

    There is plenty of oil available in North America for our continent to be self-sufficient for 50+ years. Probably longer.

    The continued increases in fuel efficiency for passenger vehicles have resulted in the closure of many US refineries. None have been built for nearly 30 years.

    We have the ability to be self-sufficient AND green if the dummies in government would compromise and focus on the USA first.
