ObamaCare deductibles are a plot to destroy Dear Leader

October 28, 2014

From The People’s Cube.

Comrades, sad is it may be, I must denounce our glorious party organ, the New York Times. Yes, you heard that right Comrades. I think someone in the party needs to get them to do a retraction on this article.

Unable to Meet the Deductible or the Doctor

We also need to denounce the racist typical white woman featured in this article. She needs to gain non-person status like Debbie Hyphenatedname-Schultz. She is whining about her $6,000 deductible. She says it is unaffordable and thus she must forego a brain scan. Obviously, she is a secret reichwinger rethugikkkan! And a racist! She just wants out First Black President™ Dear Leader Obama to look bad. 

She should have set aside $6,000 annually from her part-time landscape job to pay for her medical expenses. What does she think this is? Free health care just because the low information dullards were lead to believe that? It looks like she wasted her money on other unnecessary luxuries like rent/mortgage, food, clothing, gas to get to work, electric, phone service, heat, water, etc. She might even pay for cable tv and Internet access! Then she goes complaining to the NYT because she doesn’t have an extra $6,000 in addition to her monthly ObamaCare cost? What’s the matter with her??? 

People need to reexamine their priorities. It’s not about their basic needs. It is about making Dear Leader look good and about not being a racist. Forgo all the extras like food, electric, etc. and save your money to cover your deductible! And goodness, if you MUST eat and can’t afford your deductible then just shut up about it and don’t go flapping your gums to the media. You might just get featured in an article and embarrass glorious Dear Leader.

Army memo claims hand-washing and gas masks will prevent Ebola infection

October 27, 2014

From The Duffel Blog.

BETHESDA, Md. — Regular hand washing and eating a good hearty breakfast are among the preventive steps recommended for controlling the outbreak of Ebola, according to a new memorandum from the U.S. Army’s biodefense laboratory.

The memo from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease (USAMRIID), which Duffel Blog obtained, advises soldiers and Marines heading into Liberia to maintain proper hygiene to include brushing teeth as well as shaving any and all mustaches. It also advises troops to get weekly haircuts and keep their hands out of their pockets to help stop the virus’ spread.

The document comes as more than 3,000 US troops deploy to West Africa to catch the virus, which has so far infected almost 10 American citizens.

Once troops make their way into the Ebola “hot zone” however, protective measures become more extreme, advising the regular wear of the M-40 field protective mask and outerwear garments — known as “MOPP Gear” — which the memo says is “100 percent guaranteed to prevention contraction of the disease.”

Still, the military is being proactive in its “War on Ebola,” which insiders have been calling “Operation: Enduring Anywhere but Iraq.” As deployments to the region continue, combat medics will be trained in critical lifesaving techniques, such as the issuing of 800mg of Ibuprofen, and advising soldiers to change their socks on a regular basis.

When asked for comment, a spokesman for Africa Command said he was excited the unit was finally doing something worth taking phone calls about, but could not not discuss ongoing military operations.

Typhoid Barry and the Centers for Disease Control and Redistribution

October 21, 2014

“In August, Science magazine published a survey conducted by 58 medical professionals working in African epidemiology. They traced the origin and spread of the virus with remarkable precision—for instance, they discovered that it crossed the border from Guinea into Sierra Leone at the funeral of a ‘traditional healer’ who had treated Ebola victims. In just the first six months of tracking the virus, the team identified more than 100 mutated forms of it.

“Yet what’s really scary is how robust the already-established transmission mechanisms are. Have you ever wondered why Ebola protocols call for washing down infected surfaces with chlorine? Because the virus can survive for up to three weeks on a dry surface.

“How robust is transmission? Look at the health care workers who have contracted it. When Nina Pham, the Dallas nurse who was part of the team caring for Liberian national Thomas Duncan, contracted Ebola, the CDC quickly blamed her for ‘breaching protocol.’ But to the extent that we have effective protocols for shielding people from Ebola, they’re so complex that even trained professionals, who are keenly aware that their lives are on the line, can make mistakes.

“By the by, that Science article written by 58 medical professionals tracing the emergence of Ebola—5 of them died from Ebola before it was published.” —Jonathan V. Last, Six Reasons to Panic

“All our radical Jihadist enemies have to do is inject tainted Ebola blood into volunteer suicide bombers, or worse, innocent children, and send them across the border. Undetectable, they walk across our Southern border showing no symptoms and surrender to U.S. border agents. Obama disperses them across the country where they sneeze or cough on their lawyers, caretakers, and classmates. It’s that easy, it’s that simple, to start a deadly Ebola Pandemic across America. …

“What if Ebola spreads to Mexico, Central or South America? Suddenly panic ensues and hundreds of thousands of their citizens (or even millions) run for the U.S. border looking for America’s medical system to save them, spreading Ebola like wildfire… into your home and mine. …

“Knowing all this, Obama does nothing. He refuses to secure the border. He sends our young military men and women into the death zone to face an invisible killer. He even purposely chooses to refuse to do something so simple and common sense as ban flights and quarantine travelers from the Ebola Zone.

“Our president is putting all of our lives, our families, our economic survival, at risk. He is gambling with our children, our jobs, the future survival of America. …

“Why take that gamble? Why risk economic suicide? Why not take all possible actions and precautions to limit the possibility of a widespread epidemic? Is Obama criminally insane? A madman? An ignorant, delusional fool? Or is he doing this purposely to overwhelm America’s economic system? Does it matter?” —Wayne Allyn Root, It’s Time to Remove Obama from Office Before He Gets Us All Killed

“What short-term risk do Americans face from infected people flying here from West Africa? Small national risk: under current policy, you might see a sick West African visitor infect one or two Americans, likely hospital personnel. And some of those infected people would die, even with good care. Second question: Why take this risk? There’s no reason to do so. The administration claims that limiting incoming travel from Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone would backfire. Why do they say that?

“I’d say that it’s because they’re nuts, which is often the deep reason behind federal action. Oh, undoubtedly they’re thinking something nonsensical about the horrors of profiling black Africans, but let’s be real: we’d quarantine Sweden if they had something like Ebola, be they ever so blond, and we’d be right to do so. At the end of the day, nuts, like I said.” —Gregory Cochran, Come on in, the Plague Is Fine

“The average man on the street in, say, North Carolina or South Dakota isn’t shopping for hazmat suits and expecting a cloud of Ebola to come boiling down Main Street this Halloween, leaving a trail of corpses in its wake. They’re asking how the response could have been so confused, how the huge federal agencies charged with responding to such a crisis could have gotten everything wrong, how they could spew talking points about ‘abundance of caution’ while making ridiculously careless mistakes, such as allowing health care workers exposed to the deadly disease hop on airplanes and cruise ships without going through prudent isolation and observation periods.  Watching some of these decisions changed in mid-stream, after risk had been needlessly extended to additional people – leading to such spectacles as the cruise-ship standoff off the coast of Belize – only enhances that perception of haphazard confusion. …

“It’s the Obama Administration that dissolved into hysteria and confusion, not the American public. This is a matter of concern not just because the performance of billion-dollar agencies was so disappointing – a wound Democrats proceeded to thoroughly salt by claiming the Ebola fumbles were a result of phantom ‘budget cuts’ – but because we know more Ebola carriers are coming, and we’re hoping the next encounter goes down a lot better than the Thomas Duncan saga did. The public is looking for reassurances that lessons have been learned.

“President Obama completely misread that moment by appointing a political fixer, Ron Klain, as ‘Ebola Czar.’ If the American people had been polled on the subject last week, I doubt many of them would have said an Ebola Czar was the solution they were looking for, even if it wasn’t someone whose big previous ‘achievement’ was arranging the Solyndra debacle. Symbolic managerial positions aren’t the answer. In fact, they’re a symptom of the disease. If this gigantic, lavishly-funded government has reached the point that a new layer of executive bureaucracy must be installed to make the other bureaucracies coordinate well enough to manage a crisis that initially involved about a hundred people, it has degenerated to a terrifying level of dysfunction.” —John Hayward, Obama ‘Seethes’ over Obama Administration’s Inept Response to Ebola

“Politico released a poll revealing that 64 percent of Americans believe ‘things in the U.S. feel like they are out of control right now.’ One is left to wonder how oblivious the remaining 36 percent are – or how wedded they are to a leftist ideology that elevates political considerations above everything else.

“Nothing speaks to that reality louder the the president’s appointment of Ron Klain as “Ebola Czar.” Klain’s track record as a political operative is long and tawdry. His medical credentials? Non-existent. His and/or the administration’s level of seriousness? He either skipped, or wasn’t invited to, two high-level meetings discussing the federal response to Ebola, last Friday and Saturday.

“In the meantime, the media is once again more than willing to carry the president’s water. A CBS News report’s title gives the game away: ‘Ebola panic spreading much faster than disease in U.S.’

“Memo to CBS and all of the other leftist media lapdogs: ‘panic’ is not the operative word. Panic aligns itself with the leftist worldview, as in Americans are too stupid to behave rationally when faced with one of the deadliest viruses on the planet.

“Americans are not panicked, not nearly as much as they are angry and disgusted by an Obama administration, a Democrat Party and a mainstream media thoroughly invested in the notion that any deviation from leftist prescriptions for containment must be derived from panic and/or racism. They are rightly appalled by the plethora of unpreparedness, misinformation and outright lying that emanates from the Obama administration, seemingly on a daily basis. They are disgusted by the toxic stew of political correctness, bureaucratic incompetence and corruption that is putting their lives in unnecessary danger.

“In fact, the only real panic is coming from the left itself. They realize that all of this nonsense is occurring less than a month before the voting public gets a chance to render their verdict on the administration’s performance – along with Democrat and media support for it.” Arnold Ahlert, Americans Are Angry, Not Hysterical

Some beautiful music for Sunday

October 19, 2014

I first heard the South African praise song “Siyahamba” at a choir concert several years ago, and it instantly became one of my favorites. This performance by the Tapiola Children’s Choir perfectly captures the spirit of the song.

Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwenkhos,
Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwenkhos.
Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwenkhos,
Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwenkhos.
Siyahamba, hamba, Siyahamba, hamba
Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwenkhos.
Siyahamba, hamba, Siyahamba, hamba
Siyahamba ekukhanyeni kwenkos.

We are marching in the light of God,
We are marching in the light of God.
We are marching in the light of God,
We are marching in the light of God.
We are marching, marching, we are marching, marching,
We are marching in the light of God.
We are marching, marching, we are marching, marching,
We are marching in the light of God.
