Lets fisk this real quick.
#1. its fragile –
so is AIDS … but unlike AIDS this virus can (under certain conditions) exist outside of a host for well past a week. We’ll put that in mildly scary category.
#2. We know how it works.
We know how the common cold works too. AND … that gets us closer to a cure, certainly. But that little bit of knowledge will do exactly WHAT if we get an outbreak in San Diego, Atlanta, Chicago, NYFC?
3#. We have the resources to contain it.
we have the resources to contain the ebola contained in the two instances of KNOWN PURPOSEFUL importation. What about when someone unknowingly comes in, has poor hygiene techniques, has a family that attempts to nurse patient zero through it themselves??? I’ll tell you what, we then have an Ebola bloom HERE.
#4. Our medical staff is ready.
Again, you are ready to deal with the two imported “pet” cases. The medical establishment of the US is NOT in any way shape or form ready for this to bloom like it has in West Africa. The job abandonment rate alone could cripple the response. Not to mention the infection rate amongst the first line care givers (CNA’s) who are the ones wiping up the feces, vomit and blood.
#5. Airports are on alert.
Great. Are the quarantining questionable passengers? Have they stopped commercial flights from the seriously infected countries? So in other words, with a disease that has a 2-21 day incubation period. TSA and its international bumpkin relatives will make exactly zero effect of controlling the spread of this disease.
Thanks CNN for the anti hysteria spin control. Tell your master, you did good.
Palestinian U.N. envoy, Riyad Mansour, said the Palestinians’ understanding is that the cease-fire should go into effect immediately.
I stand with Phil Robertson.
I don’t watch the show, but I admire his business acumen, I admire his dedication to principle and to family.
But most importantly, I stand with Phil because Voltaire:
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. most likely a paraphrase
Monsieur l’abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write.
Voltaire, letter to M. le Riche, February 6, 1770
Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too.
Voltaire, Essay on Tolerance
I also admire the members of the gay community who have come out and basically said the same thing as Voltaire. They KNOW they are going to receive a giant backlash from the diversity / tolerance crowd, but they stood up for RIGHT anyway.
Before I tell you one of the real reasons for the continued (manufactured) outrage over the George Zimmerman trial / verdict, I must tell you why there was a trial in the first place.
Lets do some history on the trial.
26 February 2012 . . George Zimmerman fatally shoots Trayvon Martin
12 March 2012 . . Police Chief Lee turns case over to DA with finding of not
. . . . enough evidence to charge
13 March 2012 . . Chris Serino suggests maximum or negligent manslaughter
. . . . . charge, but suggests to DA evidence will not prove the charge
20 March 2012 . . Grand Jury convened, then two days later avoided
22 March 2012 . . Police Chief Lee temporarily resigns, resignation refused
11 April 2012 . . Zimmerman charged with 2nd degree murder
20 June 2012 . . Police Chief Lee Fired
26 June 2012 . . Lead investigator Christopher Serino transfers out of
division under pressure to arrest Zimmerman
skips a lot
13 July 2013 . . Zimmerman acquitted on all charges
Every day since . . Eric Holder, NAACP, most race baiters rail for “justice”/further charges
Now, lets think about what else was going on in the nation at the time this trial hit the news. I seem to remember there was a Presidential election and campaign going on. One that was likely to be hotly contested. One where the incumbent had ridden the largest black voter turn out to win his way into office and would likely need a similar action to retain his office. Lets think what could possibly stir up a demographic that already has deep seated persecution fears. Hmm, perhaps the “racially motivated” death of a black youth, caused by a white vigilante.
As things turned out, the “white vigilante” turned out to be 1/8th black and roughly 1/2 Peruvian, thus the new term “white Hispanic”. The media ginned up outrage by showing pictures of the deceased from 5-7 years ago, selectively editing 911 tapes to make Zimmerman sound like a racist, emphasizing the words UNARMED KID…
This drumbeat continued through out the entire election, I mean trial. No I guess I do mean election.
Trivia question. Can any of the race baiters name 3 of the 61 black Chicago children killed by gun violence during the Zimmerman trial? How about two? One?
The reason this ginned up outrage continues:
#1 that is how the race baiters make their living – Al Sharpton, Piers Morgan et al
#2 Detroit – obama’s city that will not go bankrupt on my watch – just went bankrupt when
……Valerie Jarret (correctly) refused to provide federal assistance.
..#2A At least 20,000 democratic voter, union members of the Detroit pension program just got
….their benefits cut by at least 90%. obama needs something to focus that hate and rage on,
….other than himself.
#3 Obamacare is in desperate straits as are many of the obama “legacy” items and he needs a
….diversion to assist with the 2014 election
#4 Like all of obama’s failed promises, The Justice Department’s failed promises will never be
…held against the administration by his gimme demographic, but especially if they have a race
…baiter hypnotizing them with a shiny trumped up racial outrage.
The Obama campaign was able to utilize data sets to micronize the get out the vote.
The Obama campaign had a mastery of infinitesimal data voter date coupled with a great ground game to drum up support for their campaign at a local level.
These are statements (paraphrased actually) from the post election explanations of how the Obama campaign was able to get out the vote despite unemployment being up, the economy being down, well over 50% of the voting populace disliking his new health plan.
Now we are seeing that the margin of fraud was way higher than anyone could have dreamed. It is well know, if not well acknowledged, the Left cheats in elections.
The fifth rules of the ethics of means and ends is that concern with ethics increases with the number of means available and vice versa. To the man of action the first criterion in determining which means to employ is to assess what means are available. Reviewing and selecting available means is done on a straight utilitarian basis — will it work? Moral questions may enter when one chooses among equally effective alternate means.
The seventh rule of ethics and means and ends is that generally success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics. The judgment of history leans heavily on the outcome of success and failure; it spells the difference between the traitor and the patriotic hero. There can be no such thing as a successful traitor, for if one succeeds he becomes a founding father.
From this (highly cynical and self forgiving) perspective, there is no reason to even discuss moral, ethical or legal ramifications. Success (by any means) is its own justification.
Unfortunately, for those on the left (and many politicians of all stripes) there are many of us who do not ascribe to this. This is even a smaller subset of this group (like myself) who views this type of activity as illegal, immoral, unethical and most importantly traitorous / treasonous. Push that subset far enough and you will awaken the ghost of our True Founding Fathers.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
read the entire speech. It rings true to our current situation.
Which I guess puts me to the top of the watch list. To which I say, watch away. And to my fellow man, I say do not let me be a communist, a gypsie or a Jew as I will not be there when they come for you if you are not there when they come for me.
