Now what the hell good is THAT supposed to do?

Yeah, that is about the distance the family and I live from Ebola Central. I hear North Dakota is lovely this time of year....
People here a scared shitless. That was the conclusion I came to recently. It's easy to understand when you remember that almost NOBODY in this country has first hand knowledge of how to deal with Ebola. All of the experts are in Third World shitholes right now, suited up in full hazmat gear as they walk the local streets. IMHO when anyone from the CDC, HHS, etc. make a statement to reassure the public, they're talking out their ass. So yeah, anyone with a lick of sense is paying close attention to whats going on.
Whats going to happen? Hell if I really know, I'm just an old retired submarine mechanic. But I think back to other diseases that came over here with the greatest of ease, diseases such as swine flu, avian flu, Asian flu, West Nile virus, etc. Nobody could come close to stopping their migration here, why should we believe it'll be different with Ebola? Look at how they've spread and lingered on. I mention flu type sicknesses because Ebola mimics flu, at least until you pass blood out of various orifices of your body.
But think back at how persistent and easily transmitted those diseases are. Then consider that Ebola has a mortality rate that is through the roof. Even in the Third World toilets that spawned the West Nile virus the death rate of it was nowhere near what we see with this latest scourge.
Nobody really knows shit. All the verbiage being spouted about keeping calm is just an attempt to secure the lid on the pressure cooker. That baby is going to blow soon and it won't be pretty.
Despite the prevalence of the disease, the African nations suffering from it don't have a tremendous failing of their infrastructure (what there is of it). So it isn't time to go completely prepper, fortify the home, stock up on survival gear, etc. When it starts hitting us hard the basic services will still be somewhat intact (remember, I'm only a retired sub sailor so my expertise is open to question).
The various other diseases I've mentioned are now spread worldwide. When Ebola really grows legs we're going to have a mortality rate rarely seen in recorded history. It'll hit every damned country in the world. Stand the fuck by, it's going to get really interesting.
God's will be done, may He have mercy on us all.

The family and I live about 35 miles northeast of Dallas. The wife works at the Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. If the name sounds familiar, thats where we now have a walk-in case of Ebola making the news. Maybe it shouldn't be "walk-in" as he was delivered by an ambulance, but he DID initially show up under his own steam at the ER few days prior to that.
FWIW, the wife works nowhere near where "Ebola Man" is now located. She's safe.
So as soon as the man is diagnosed it appeared that everyone in authority and his brother loudly proclaimed, "Nothing to fear, we got it. No problem. Don't be looking behind any curtains."
One of the lessons learned over the past 62 years has been that when everyone starts saying, "No problem." there is a definite problem not being addressed.
So today I was scheduled to go to the Dallas VA for a followup visit with my doctor there. I cancelled it because I can easily visualize some guy sitting next to me in the waiting area as he shows all the outward signs of flu. Flu is what Ebola can be mistaken for until you start oozing blood out of every hole of your body. Got the picture?
I'll just sit things out here in my little farming community for the next few weeks. That should be long enough for whatever is going to happen to appear.
Did you hear they now have 100 people under surveillance for this disease that poses "no problem"?
Sometimes paranoiacs have a reason for their suspicions.

Okay, so now what? Shall I have the wife file her taxes separate from my own so when I flat refuse to pay there will be no repercussions on her? Some time ago I quizzed a Dominican about this very topic, then it seemed more abstract than now. Anyway, his response was that my first responsibility was to my family and I would have to figure out for myself where to draw the line if push came to shove.
That reeducation camp is getting closer and closer. Let's make a date to meet at the Chestnut Tree Cafe when we get out.

Yes, we need to ramp up our efforts to stop followers of the Pedophile Prophet from giving their version of "high and tight" to the necks of their enemies (which includes most of the Free World).
But this sort of thing can be turned to other uses too damned easily. Today they look for potential recruits for jihad, tomorrow it could be Tea Party members, fundamentalist Christians, you name it.
I actually LIKE the idea of living amongst nut cases that are one step short of certifiable, it reminds me of my days in the military. I DON'T like the idea of legislating political loyalty, morality or anything else. For example, if theres a problem with too many people accepting abortion then it's incumbent upon the prolife community to get the word out about the true nature of things. Legislation doesn't help, look at Prohibition, all it did was erode the idea of following unpopular laws.
Can't those damned fools in DC do anything right?

Over the past couple of days I've come across news stories detailing how yet another study conclusively proves a link between autism and aborted fetal cells used in vaccines, specifically the MMR for measles, mumps and rubella.
I WON'T link to those stories nor go into any more detail regarding their source. My gripe here is with the seemingly mindless acceptance by the prolife movement of them. When did independent thinking fall out of fashion?
The basic fact is NOBODY knows with any real certainty what the cause of autism is. There are a few possibilities but nothing definite.
Yet as regards this particular train of thought we're all to believe that some sinister conspiracy exists to cover up an undeniable link. Funny how often these stories come from entities that seem to have their own axe to grind or cause to promote.
The biggest thing to put my panties in a twist though are the all too frequent supporters of this theory that will triumphantly spout off about it. They always seem to stop just short of accusing parents of autistic children of neglecting the will of God and thereby suffering the well deserved consequences. It seems to be implied that "good" Catholics would never deign to stoop so low as to have their kids vaccinated in such a heinous manner. Oh, blow me why dontcha!
As the father of three (yeah, I said THREE) autistic kids it burns my ass when someone relegates my children to the status of mere pawns in some theological payback scheme.
God doesn't work that way, all autistic children deserve better and the smug fools who have never experienced life with autism should just STFU.
Okay, rant over. Thanks for your patience.
Here's the link: http://www.lifenews.com/2014/09/09/obama-admin-renews-attempt-to-force-little-sisters-of-the-poor-to-obey-hhs-mandate/
Just MHO but I believe the Administration is waiting for a break in the ranks of the Faithful in regards to rejecting the HHS mandate. They sure to have been encouraged by the recent capitulation of Notre Dame http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/notre-dames-student-health-plan-will-cover-contraceptives-abortifacients/
So they're sure to keep on pushing until a sufficient number of "Catholic" entities admit defeat that any objection will be seen as coming from a fringe group.
Next up will be the issue of gay "marriage".
The question can be asked "just what could any human gain in this"? That question could come from all sides of the debate. Call me a loon but it isn't human gain that is at issue here, Satan benefits when those speaking for the people of God are discredited. End of story.
