I’ve shifted over to a mix of “cable” that is really DISH TV via Sat to some kind of local distribution… and “WiFi” to the computer… I’ve also shifted to “commercial arbitrage” where whichever is shoving its commercial tongue down my throat is on mute and I’m looking at the other screen…. but I digress…
The “bottom line” is that I was watching FOX TV and at the same time wandering through FOX online (purely an accidental alignment… I’m setting up for BBC, Russia Today, and Al Jazeera among others… just at the moment it was FOX I was looking at…) and hit this clip:
What can I say? The man is honorable, knows how to handle “bad shit”, and HE needs to be in charge, not some political hack as Obama has selected.
I guess I’m just “People on da Street”… and proud of it…
That would be just too sensical, wouldn’t it ?
I’m convinced that the PTB intend to see this disease spread. I can’t come up with any other rational explanation.
The man is not a doctor. He is also not a politician. But he is a man who can do a job as he has demonstrated. He is voicing the concerns of millions of Americans! We are getting conflicting information! We are being lied to! The problem is not one that cannot be dealt with, the problem is a lack of integrity in the leaders! Set the policy! Do not keep changing it every time a new situation arises. Enforce the policy. Do not let Ebola Kaci set the terms of her quarantine!
The plan is simple. The details need to be worked through. But this administration has no plan, and the details change with each new revelation. Whether it is this General, or someone else, they need to get a competent individual to kick butt and take names and set the policy now. All they are doing is sending out mixed signals and NOT mollifying the people. The keystone Kops could not make a better comedy of what these idiots have done.
He’s not a doctor, but he is a Lt. General. More soldiers have been lost to disease than to enemy army actions throughout history. Any good General knows this, and knows how to stop epidemics. (Heck, while fighting a war, even…) It isn’t pleasant, but it works.
In other news, CDC admits that Ebola can move through the air on ‘droplets’ but insists that isn’t airborne, so it’s OK…
The W.H.O. agrees, but equivocates:
Ignoring that news photographer who did not have ‘wet contact’ with anyone… that’s an ‘anomaly’ or the guy must be mistaken…. couldn’t be ‘droplets’ evidence…
Oh Well…. buy your plastic sheeting, full face respirator, and bleach now… avoid the rush…
/sarc; or maybe 1/2 /sarc;…
Then add in the ‘cold preservation’ effects and the potential to move into a new host population in a whole new continent (or 3…). I’m sure we’ll all be just fine….
Oh, and ignore that a set of doctors and nurses who run off to Africa to deal face to face with Ebola just might be a self selected group for excess hubris, self confidence, and high risk taking behaviour. Just “trust them” to be cautious and do the prudent thing and have the humility to think that they might have it wrong….
I’d like to share a page with the group. I found it very thought-provoking. This guy’s take on the situation seems more along the lines with how the PTB might use it to accomplish other goals:
It seems that the commonest treatments for ebola actually deplete the nutrients that prevent the symptoms of similar diseases (such as scurvy and malaria). In fact, malaria treatment can bring on worse symptoms that might easily be attributed to ebola, since that’s in the news and is what everyone thinks of first if a person comes down with a fever.
IIRC, in recent years the certain flu-du-jour was assumed to be so prevalent that they stopped even testing people. They just assumed anyone with flu-like symptoms had that flu and added them to the body count.
My own personal feeling is that it’s more easily spread than they have been telling us, and paying more attention to one’s nutrition and gut health and avoiding sugar in particular is the key to staying well.
