Czar

Monday, October 20th, 2014

And President Obama’s choice as “Ebola czar” is … another lawyer. That’s a relief! I’d hate for Mr. Obama to play against type and name–oh, I don’t know–an infectious disease specialist. What we need is yet another lawyer in this administration.

Ask

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Memo to the CDC: If you don’t have enough money to find a cure for Ebola (assuming such a thing is even possible), then you have only yourself to blame. You didn’t ask. Apparently you had other priorities.

Blame

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

No, Barack Obama is not solely to blame for the Ebola crisis. But it’s worth remembering that when an administration chooses to spend hundreds of billions on a “stimulus” that fails to stimulate, or even mere millions studying why lesbians are obese, then it shouldn’t be surprised when it is ill-prepared to respond to a genuine crisis.

Every dollar wasted, every year whiled away on ridiculous priorities when times are calm represents a lost opportunity to get prepared when the times turn bad. We are weaker financially, militarily, and morally than we have been in a generation. That is due in large part to the president’s misplaced priorities and his squandering of the nation’s wealth.

Mr. Obama’s failures, so obvious now, took years to come to fruition, when most of us chose to look the other way.

Illuminating

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Yesterday, we learned two illuminating things about George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama:

(1) Bush wasn’t lying when he said there were WMDs in Iraq. The country had thousands of them; we were just never able to discover any new programs or delivery systems (perhaps these had been dismantled and spirited out the country before the fighting started?). There’s a chance that these weapons, which supposedly “didn’t exist,” now will fall into the hands of ISIS.

(2) Mr. Obama spent $800 billion on a “stimulus” program that didn’t stimulate, but somehow he couldn’t find the money necessary to construct 13 regional disease detection centers recommended by the CDC in 2008 to respond to emerging health threats such as Ebola. Six years later, we have only 10 of the centers, not the 18 that were recommended.

So which president would you rather have now, America?

Obama’s Katrina?

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

I’ll always believe that George W. Bush was unfairly tarred with what happened in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrnia. (The Democratic mayor and governor were the real culprits.) But thanks to biased media coverage and an unfortunate comment by the president to the head of FEMA, Katrina planted in the public’s mind that Bush was somehow to blame.

Well, Barack Obama, the champion of ever larger and more intrusive government, has provided us with ample evidence of his own incompetence in actually making government work over the last five and a half years. (I won’t list all the examples here.) I’m wondering if, given the failures of the CDC, his PC refusal to ban flights from the affected countries, and his own repeated false assurances, the Ebola epidemic will finally be Mr. Obama’s Katrina moment.

You know Mr. Obama’s worried, because he actually canceled a fund raiser….

Ebola Patient Shouldn’t Have Boarded Plane, Officials Say

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

By Arthur Delaney

Top health officials said Wednesday that a nurse infected with Ebola never should have boarded a plane.

And the Obama administration’s reasoning for allowing plane flights from affected countries into this country is what exactly? If this person with Ebola got on a plane and that was wrong, why are our officials allowing people from West Africa to get on planes and possibly bring the deadly virus here, as Thomas Duncan did? While we must provide massive amounts of money and manpower to fight Ebola in affected countries, we need a travel ban–now. What part of “protect the public health” don’t they understand?

Low

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

I had thought that Democrats couldn’t go any lower when they ginned up a supposed Republican “war on women” (which, unfortunately, works far too often among our uneducated populace). I was wrong. Now they are blaming the GOP for the Ebola epidemic. This is not the usual pre-election hyperbole. It is poison that is deadly to our Republic. Shame on them, and on anyone who goes along.

Careful What You Click For

By Rachel Marie Stone

When I click on links I know are trashy, or links I know I’m going to disagree with, I’m casting a vote for more of the same. Chances are, you are too.
