    I’m about done with TheBlaze. They have some good articles here, but I’ve had it with the add attacks on this website. It’s over the top and just isn’t worth the hassle and aggravation.

    Why is this even a story? This isn’t some weird anomaly. This is exactly the kind of reporting I know happens day in and day out in mainstream media. This is exactly the reason why, when I’m not ignoring them altogether, I laugh at them as they pretend to be “authoritative.” They are fools who profess to be wise. Nothing new to see here. Just the same old lying and deception. Even Pravda laughs at mainstream media.

    “Thiel said most innovators in Silicon Valley have libertarian instincts, “but the politics end up being liberal because that’s what’s cool.”

    Wow. I had no idea libertarians were such cowards. Smart cowards, interesting.

    These measures are about as useful as patting down grandma to make sure she’s not bringing explosive underpants on the plane while middle eastern men wearing long dark cloaks scoot right on through.
    The leadership of our country puts protecting and serving American citizens as the last priority. All other concerns come first. Porous boarders. African economies. Yes, these things come first lest we be labeled politically incorrect.
    In 100 years, people will learn about the United States by checking their appendices sections, headings under national suicide, how to.

    “It seems unfriending folks is a distinctly liberal tactic.”

    Liberals give a lot of lip service about how we all need to be tolerant and embrace diversity. But it’s just lip service.

    But in the real world, liberals threaten floral shops to cater gay weddings, or else!

    Bakeries must cater to gay weddings, or else!

    Pastors must turn in their sermons to the state, or else!

    Libertarians against Hillary Clinton must stop being against her, or else!

    Conservative Hollywood actors better keep quiet, or else!

    The list goes on and on. Yep, liberals talk a good talk, but what they really want is absolute control and there is no detail too small that doesn’t need to be controlled.

    Since as a country we no longer have any sense at all, this is what will happen all over the country if Ebola spreads… people and institutions will figure out ways to quarantine the healthy. It would be a lot easier, and make infinitely more sense if we could just quarantine the sick, but when you live in opposite world, that’s far too simple a thing to do.

    It’s as if everybody at this hospital who came into contact with Duncan had travel plans the next day. Unbelievable. A cruise ship? Really? We are a Forest Gump society… just not in a good way.

    Try living in full-blown communism. I did. Long story short, we’ll never agree…

    I don’t at all disagree with your concerns. Flights from West Africa, hell all of Africa and anyone who’s been to Africa, should be prevented from coming here. Ebola has a 50% mortality rate if you get it. It’s a serious problem.

    But what I’m getting at is that despite how bad it is if you get it, it hasn’t shown to be as “spreadable” as a lot of officials, who in my opinion are fear mongering for their own purposes, might have you believe.

    A lot of people speculate that it is now airborne. But if that were true, we’d already be seeing flare ups all over our country and everywhere else. But that isn’t happening and if Ebola was easily transferred from human to human, by now we’d see solid evidence of epidemic all over the place.

    It’s a serious problem. For the nurse fighting for her life in Texas – it’s very serious. But I think we’re being lied to and manipulated as usual. In this case, I hope I’m more right and you’re more wrong. Time will inevitably tell.

    What our country desperately needs right now is a heavy helping of conservatism. What is being argued in the GOP right now is how to be pseudo conservative because of the realities of our current electorate and changing demographics. This is why I don’t feel the GOP is anything but perhaps a watered down though very much still part of the problem.

    Regardless of what political gamesmanship are played to hold power by either party, or how foolish our electorate is to buy into big government and collectivist concepts, the country will never again be a strong and stable place until we start practicing personal responsibility, reign in our spending, and generally behaving to the standard set forth by our Constitution.

    Unfortunately, I don’t see any real hope to a return to this condition in the years I have left on this Earth. Our electorate has a lot of growing up to do. Perhaps the next generation, who will begin to bare the brunt of a declining country in a material way far greater than what we are experiencing right now, will be more honest to themselves and less aligned to group-think ideology.

    Today’s college kids aren’t paying attention to reality but they’ll give a thumbs up to anything Hollywood or MSNBC has to say. Yet they don’t know much of their history and are prone to lie over just about anything. But they consider themselves wise beyond their years. Yep, lot’s of growing up to do here.

    “But if we would just stop for a second and fix our eyes above the clouds,…”

    The left has co-opted our culture and as long as they’re steering our cultural “ship” the vast majority of our energy, if not all of it, will focus on gender, racism, and all the reasons why government should replace God. These are the things the left obsesses about… over and over… in an unending circle.

    I remember as a boy here in the 1970s, legally coming here from a communist country, how I marveled at American culture. Back then we were all about being proud of who we were, we led the world in space flight and science, and it was America who was discovering things all the time. It really felt like being part of a winning team.

    Now we have a generation of kids growing up who believe their country is a great evil. I wish I could teleport my life experiences under communism into the minds of every college student so they could know the lies that a collectivist society really is.

    I can’t eat there. I like the taste of the food going down (it’s engineered that way) but I just don’t feel good at all after I’m done and that ‘unwell’ feeling lasts about 24 hours along with the salt lick that persists at the back of my throat. That can’t be good.

    I’m concerned about Ebola like anyone else. But lately, my hype-o-meter has been flashing red. Bird flu, SARS, swine flu… those were all going to kill us too. Ebola is serious and deadly if you get it. But TheBlaze doesn’t serve its readers really with the way the headline reads… which when I read it I thought they were implying that we’d see 10k cases per week HERE in the United States. That makes me wonder just how much hype and spin is coming from everywhere else… remember swine flu was going to kill us all.

    I think we’ll see more cases in the U.S. and each one will be alarming. Do I think it’s really going to be an epidemic that will kill perhaps 100s of thousands of Americans… no not really. Somehow, this virus manages to infect the people who dwell around it, even when wearing protective gear. But by now, we’d already have way more cases being reported if the virus was easily transmitted from human to human. Even in Africa with 4k+ infections, it’s a relatively small number given the total population of Africa… and in Africa they practically roll themselves around in the virus with all their bizarre beliefs and practices… especially when it comes to burying their dead.

    My hype-o-meter is telling me that once again, as usual, the media, our politicians, the CDC… they’re all playing a fear-mongering game serving their various agendas.

    Since I grew up in an actual communist country, the word ‘progressive’ and other pie charts describing communist utopia in re-written history books along with many other distractions and propaganda don’t fool me.

    The American and Western European left is an interesting though decidedly suicidal creature. They are so distracted, easily fooled, and rarely understand why they believe what they believe beyond a bumper sticker, a two-line chant at some rally, or a sound bite/talking point from MSNBC.

    And yet, they profess to be wise, looking down their collective noses which routinely support thick black-framed glasses, I guess to drive home the point to the rest of us that they are super smart. All the while they don’t see coming that those the left champions will put them in chains FIRST.

    The word ‘sheeple’ is often applied to those the left opposes. That is just one of many ironies of modern liberalism.

    Actually, I challenge your implication that an MSNBC host possesses cognitive parity with the Ebola virus. I’d put money on the virus being smarter even.

  • [2] October 13, 2014 at 11:14am

    I think back to a few years ago, when I accidentally heard something moronic being said on MSNBC as I was flipping past that channel thinking wow I doubt anything dumber could come out of that network. Then you have this story and I think, yes, yes they actually can get dumber. Wow.
