I found an article that claims to reveal personal protective precautions everyone can take against possible Ebola infection!

O.K., …… we have all the assurances in the world from all the authorities who are supposed to know about Ebola ……. We have all the assurances from all the head-in-the-sanders who want us to believe we have a better chance of being killed by a runaway shopping cart than we do of getting the Ebola virus …….So how much of what the government tells us can we really depend on? ……. With all the mis-steps in addressing the disease that have been reported in the media …… with the fact that travel restrictions to and from affected areas of the world could still use a little tweaking ….. and considering that some people are claiming there is more than one way the virus can be spread from person to person ……. I am ready to receive some helpful information on some of the measures I might take to try and protect myself against this disease which ……. (1) Is very unlikely to be brought to The United States ……. (2)  Is completely under control by The CDC and others involved in the process …… (3) Poses absolutely zero chance of causing a major outbreak in The United States.

Here is something I found interesting:

“. . . 3) Ebola can spread by contact, droplet, heavy airborne particles, and body fluids. Since coughing and nasal discharge contain particulate matter, anyone who gets hit with an infected microbe has the potential to be infected. . . .” ……. This is a paragraph from the full article to which I am about to link …… and from what I can determine this is the kind of information that we need to be aware of but is also the kind of information I don’t see too many responsible people talking about very much …… Is the threat minimal as we are being told …… or is there something that somebody isn’t telling us for some reason?

Read this and make up your own mind: ——

Am I going to endorse the information in the article I have referenced?  ……. No, I am not endorsing anything …… I am simply presenting information in the event some of my readers may be interested and it is information that I found to be extremely interesting in light of what I consider to be a major possibility for problems with Ebola developing right here at home in The United States …… something that should have never happened in the first place ….. something that should never have been brought here …… something I think is a lot bigger than a lot of people might know ……. and of course …… as all the authorities are saying …… something about which there is nothing whatsoever to be concerned about. ……. “Like Hell,” is what I say about that kind of cavalier attitude!

Despite Right Wing lies to the contrary Obama’s pick for Surgeon General is most definitely a highly-qualified health professional!

You may have heard some right wing propaganda expert saying that Dr. Vivek Murthy ……. Obama’s pick to fill the position of Surgeon General of The United States ……. is not really a qualified medical person …… or some other such total bullshit as that ……. but the truth is …… RIGHT HERE!

They never give up do they folks? ……. I think lying is in their DNA!

Right wing sees great economic hopes in “Trade Agreements” now awaiting presidential signature

File this one under:  “Positive Wishful Wet Dream Thinking For Conservative Skid Marks”

I have no choice but to agree the “Bill” awaiting the President’s signature would create thousands of new jobs ……. I have no problem believing that at all!

There is what some of the less-knowledgeable of the right wingers think is a “magic bullet” jobs-creating bill awaiting the President’s signature and  those right wingers maintain that  this “Bill” will create a minimum of  250,000 jobs the minute the President signs it ……. the  bill is a trade pact …… agreement …… with Columbia ……. Panama …….. and South Korea. …….. Just what we need …….. another “Trade Agreement” with foreign countries!

My opinion is that if the President signs this “Trade Agreement” it will definitely probably create the 250,000 jobs the right tards are expecting that it will create ……. I believe it will create 250,000 jobs that U.S. Business Firms will open up in or ship to Columbia ……. Panama …….. and South Korea …… and perhaps it will also open up a few temporary jobs here in the United States as well …… temporary jobs tearing down factories and boxing them up for shipment to Columbia ……. Panama ……. and South Korea.

So my advice to American Workers …….  if the President signs this “Trade Agreement” is this: …….. “If you are looking for one of those good old American Jobs you have heard so much about for most of your life you can maybe soon  find them in  Columbia ……. Panama ……. and South Korea.

Can’t argue with the right wing on this one, can we?  The “Bill” would create thousands of new jobs alright  ……. on foreign soil ……. for foreign workers …… at foreign wage scales …… which are so far below our poverty level as to be almost completely out of competition for the title, “Wages.”

Yep! …….. Let’s all vote for those right wing job-creation bills and then let’s all pack up and get ready to move to …… Columbia ……. Panama and South Korea.

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer ….. Oh happy day!

Stocks markets are rising again and the Obama-Conomy is looking good!

Reports are that stock and bond prices and sales are on the upswing again and I would imagine there are a lot of American Investors laughing all the way to the bank to cash their dividend checks today …… but as any ignoramori  from the right will gladly opine ……. “The Stock Market ain’t no indicator of the health of the Economy.” ……. I wonder if their song and dance about the stock market not being an indicator of the strength and health of the economy would change if the stocks and bonds were through the basement floor? …… of course they would ……. and of course they did when it happened ……. they can never seem to get their stories straight about where they stand on things can they? ……. When the economy is good the righties will never say that President Obama had anything to do with it …… but when the economy is in the shitter it is always the fault of the president according to that bunch of asswipes. ……. The only thing consistent about the right wing radicals is their total lack of comprehension about anything that goes on around them.

Despite the most enthusiastic denials by the right wing . . . government money supports vaccine development in a big way in The United States!

I read an argument on a blog that seemed to make the case that it is not the United States Government ……. The Fed ……. The Obama Administration ……. Or any administration for that matter …….who supplies research funding for vaccine development in this country …… The blogger who wrote the argument that it is private industry and private medical researchers who spend the billions of dollars needed to develop working vaccines in this country and not the Federal Government doesn’t seemed to have done enough research before making the statements …….

After ranting and raving about what “sick bastards” Liberals are and who took a few detours from reason and sanity to intone his or her belief  that Liberals should have been aborted “long ago” and who topped the raging rant off with the supposition that most Liberals are “Freeloading Asses” …… and other such sentiments that gave me immediate pause …… but which do not seem all that unusual to me seeing as how the raving was coming from the writing of a right winger ….. the writer took the opportunity to conclude that Liberals wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped them in the face …… blah …….blah …….blah!

O.K., folks ……. Here is a little “Truth” I am sure the rightie who wrote all this stuff must have missed somewhere along the way …… and if you will take notice when reading the following link, the Federal Government of The United States is universally acknowledged as the major contributing partner in the entity responsible for funding and developing vaccines in this country ….. and the agency that does it is called “The National Institute of Health.”

Read about that little detail here …….. and take special note of the following paragraph within the text of the link I am providing: ……. ” . . . The major partners are the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT; four large companies–two US-headquartered (Wyeth-Lederle Biologics and Vaccines
and Merck & Co), two foreign firms (SmithKline Beecham and Pasteur Mérieux Connaught); and
academia. Of the $1.4 billion that fund US vaccine research and development annually, 46% comes
from vaccine sales, 36% from taxpayers, and 18% from risk capital . . . .”

Please note that 36% of the “billions” that fund U.S. vaccine research and development comes from ….TAXPAYERS via the U.S. Government! …… Did you notice that little detail?

Here is the rest of the story for those who might be interested in a little of that truth that us Liberals wouldn’t recognize if it slapped us in the face:

http://archive.hhs.gov/nvpo/pubs/DELFAB.pdf

and here is a little more truth about who supplies the money for vaccine research and development in these United States …….

http://www.virology.ws/2014/10/15/would-we-have-an-ebola-virus-vaccine-if-not-for-nih-cuts/

O.K., folks ……  I guess that concludes the opinion about this subject from one Freeloading-Assed Liberal who probably should have been aborted “long ago” ……(If the rightie who wrote this shit had believed in abortion and if he or she …… as the case might be ……would have had their way about how my future would have turned out ) …….for what it might be worth and for who ever might be interested.

What is the point of me writing this post? ……. I want to demonstrate the fact that there are a lot of anti-government Obama-Hating, Liberal Haters out there who are spreading mis-information ……. which I, being my usual Liberal-Pile-of-Assed self sometimes refer to affectionately as  “Shit” ……. or for those who prefer a more lenient application ……. “Bullshit” ……. and I think that sometimes the record needs to be straightened out with a few “Real” facts on some of these issues.

Of course I am not blaming people who spread this kind of stuff because …… maybe if all the chips were down and all the facts were known ….. they might not really know their information is faulty …… I do not accuse any of them of saying these things on purpose …… I think it is probably more a matter of “Faith” with some of them than it is a matter of concrete facts …… because a lot of these opiners work more from gut feelings than from actual known facts sometimes. …… So to be absolutely fair …… maybe it is not their fault they get it wrong ……. Maybe some of them simply don’t know any better. ……. Gotta be fair about this, don’t we?

Remember that when you vote for anything smacking of the American Conservative Right Wing these days this is what you get …… twisted truth!

It might be well to remember to take this realization to the polls ……. if the polls where you vote haven’t been so gerrymandered or suppressed by the right wing obstructionists that you can’t get there or can’t cast your ballot once you do manage to get there.

No fear required

It’s morning again ……. The weather is clear ……. The expectations are for a warm day reaching perhaps to 60 degrees later on in the afternoon. ……. Breakfast was ground beef steak and cottage cheese …… I may not eat lunch or dinner at all today. ……. My pet birds are still ignoring the fresh lettuce leaf I put into their cages for them yesterday. ……. I have been thinking about how all the people who rode New York subways yesterday must be feeling this morning seeing as how a potential ebola patient had been riding along with some of them …… the same goes for people at a bowling alley where the “patient” ……. (now in isolation) …… had gone the night before. …… Of course as we all know by now ……. there is nothing to fear because “everything is under control.” ……. The Mayor of New York reportedly went on television to assuage the fears of New Yorkers so I guess that will get the job done and nobody is even thinking about the incident by this time …… right? ……. What would be wrong with an automatic mandatory quarantine of all passengers coming back to the U.S. from West African nations stricken by ebola outbreaks …… an automatic 21-day quarantine …….  just out of “an abundance of caution” …… what would be wrong with that? …….. How about some of those flight restrictions people have been talking about? ……. Oh I remember now …….. ebola can only be spread by contact with bodily fluids …… so is that why the CDC issued those warnings against using public restrooms? …… Oh well …… like I said before ……. why worry when everybody is telling us there is nothing to worry about? ……. I am thinking, “All this ebola stuff will be over and done with one of these days and somebody will invent an expensive vaccine that the radical right wing religious idiots will refuse to take or to allow their offspring to take ……. but the Medical Industry will make billions off giving the vaccinations ……. seems to me like the reasonable expectation ……. stop worrying about the careless handling and spread of the virus and start thinking about how to make a fortune off it. ……. Hey rightwads!  …… You listening? …….. Here’s your chance!

Faith or foolishness

The reasons that Liberals cannot reason with a lot of conservatives is because a lot of conservatives ……. especially the ones who identify themselves as “Christian Conservatives” ……. ( a true misnomer) ……. tend to ignore facts and fill the huge holes in their idiot-ology with blind faith …… faith that their way is the right way …… the only way ……and that nobody else’s ideas but their own have any merit ……. these things are true regardless of the issue ……. there is no getting around it …… there is no changing it …… it is the nature of the beast …… the righties tend to be bull-headed ……stubborn ……manipulators …….fabricators …….liars……delusional …….but filled with faith …… faith in themselves and in little else! …….

They much prefer their personal “feelings” over statistics or facts ……and if you try to present facts to them they tend to become insulted and will walk away from you with the accusation on their lips that you have “questioned their faith” …… and so most ……. if not all reasonable arguments or discussions you try to have with them are in vain from the beginning ……

There is no winning a point with most contemporary versions of “Conservative” because it is always “their way or the highway” ……. and they even brand anyone who dares to compromise as an enemy of the state …… enemy of democracy …… enemy of the party ……and trust me when I tell you that this intransigent mind-set is definitely not appropriate for the orderly functioning of a democratic republic where give and take is necessary to positive ……. productive progress ……. and that …… in my opinion …… is the reason they would rather shut down the government than give an inch on their idiosyncratic ideological viewpoints. …….

I have always thought of the radical right as the ideology of the “No Brainers.” ……. Did you ever notice how they have this tendency to attack and to start calling names whenever they are in a position where they are about to be proven wrong about anything? ……. Like spoiled children they start getting all defensive when someone is getting the best of them in a discussion and they start getting angry and calling names or creating all kinds of diversions …… anything to avoid answering a question …… anything but being forced to cough up a solution to a problem …… just anger …… just retaliation ……. just nastiness! ……. It often rises to the level of infantilism doesn’t it?
