That's right. Ebola can be transmitted by sneezes and doorknobs.
I simply don't get the people who are downplaying Ebola. On the one side we have fringe conspiracy theorists who charge that the Satanic sociopaths in charge want to depopulate the planet, yet are faking the Ebola threat for some bizarre reason. On the other we have what appear to be Democratic operatives flooding news comment sections making fun of anyone who is concerned about Ebola.
I finally realized the core of what has been bothering me about what's happening in America lately - how Ebola is being mishandled, the idea that more debt is the path to prosperity, the never ending parade of PC lynch mobs ready to destroy someone's career or livelihood for not holding the proper opinion.
How many of you thought that something might happen on the anniversary of 9/11? And yet, the day came and went without much fanfare, and the media was focused on their latest mob lynching - this time, football player Ray Rice. (While I don't condone violence against women, I don't condone violence, period, and Ray Rice's transgression pales in comparison to the beheadings and religious genocide going on in the Middle East right now.)
With everything going on in the world, I thought we should step back for a moment and focus on one of the most pervasive, divisive issues of not just our modern day, but of all human history. It is an issue that has divided families, broken up marriages, and started wars:
I'm no fan of Rick Perry. But as a resident of Austin, Texas, I am so outraged by the indictment against him that I'd be happy to pick up a placard and protest this insanity. Here's the story in a nutshell, in case you missed it:
Note: We do not normally delve into issues like abortion on Main Street. Turd has made an exception for this article. I'm doing this article by request of Stackahola. It's going to be controversial. Deal with it.
Women are becoming violent. Did you ever ask yourself why?
Never mind about the apparent increase in creepy cases of young women going on murder sprees. Never mind about female teachers abusing their students sexually (male and female). Never mind about young women trolling Craigslist with their boyfriends to find men to rape and murder.
Powerful, compelling, and yes, flawed, Dinesh D'Souza's documentary "America: Imagine the World Without Her" should be required viewing in classrooms across America regardless of its minor shortcomings.
Obama was in Austin, Texas on July 10, 2014, so I went to downtown to protest. I would highly recommend getting off your computer and getting involved. When you are actually out in the thick of things, you see and experience things that you won't otherwise through the media filter.
Happy 4th of July! Please do not take this post too seriously! It is not about metals, or necessarily anything of importance! It is simply meant to provide a diversion for the holiday weekend. Enjoy! Or don't! :-)
So we must be officially in the Twilight Zone when liberal blowhard Keith Olbermann joins conservative blowhard Ann Coulter in bashing the pretentious nature of soccer!
Heads are exploding over the SCOTUS decision on the contraception mandate, which I, as a woman, applaud. Why Because not only is religious liberty important, but birth control pills are actually bad for you!
I've recently re-watched Stars Wars Episodes I-III for the first time since seeing them in the theater. While Phantom Menace is still cringe-inducing in parts, I did and still do like Episodes II and III. (Mostly due to young Obi-Wan Kenobi and his awesome lightsaber fights!)
George Lucas, as flawed a filmmaker as he is, was extremely prescient, and I could not help but think about the parallels between the fall of the "Old Republic" and where we are at today in America.
Normally I wouldn’t want to add to the excessive focus on what may be a giant distraction, but count me in with the “WTF” sentiment regarding the Bergdahl swap. (California Lawyer has written a great article outlining some of the odd questions, which you can read here if you missed .)
You can learn a lot about people by interacting with pets. It's said that pets are like people, but people are also like their pets. By observing how pets react, we can learn something about how we often react, unconsciously, from our animal nature. Think this is not important? It's crucial, because we're being manipulated every day by people who understand this. We are being programmed.
We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive. C. S. Lewis
Oh those Doomers! You know who I'm talking about! Those negative people who are constantly fear-mongering about the end of the world. Going on and on about how bad things are going to get, and how awful life is going to be in the future. Why, at their worst, Doomers are painting a picture of a world in flames!
These Doomers are so obsessed with their fear-mongering that it has almost become, well, cultish.
