“What little children learn, they can never forget.”
– Rabbi Sardonicus the Elder (Collected Aphorisms & Sayings, vol. 18)

Surprised by the outburst of anti-Russia sentiments? Not me!
I saw us headed into “Cold War, Part 2” the moment I heard people calling Bernie Sanders a communist who honeymooned in Moscow. At that moment, I had not one doubt that the nation would head in that direction.

The Cold-War brainwashing of the 1940s-1960s lodged deep in the American psyche and there it will stay for at least 3 more generations.

The Anti-Russia propaganda which defined the Cold War filled an atavistic need.  It supplied us with a common enemy, fueled TEAM SPIRIT, and allowed us to cringe in fear without seeming cowardly. After all, the EVIL RUSSIA held our future in their hands!

Such good old days… After the USSR collapsed (as it always gets framed) Americans experienced a surge in jingoistic pride. Then came the let-down. After hating and fearing and feeling smugly superior, we found ourselves all on our own, adrift in a world of peace. Oh, the horror!

Since the USSR died, America has groped blindly for a new Big Enemy so that we may return to those shining days of pride coupled with mortal terror. Over the years, corporate media tried and tried to build up new enemies: Muslims. ISIS. Al Qaeda. Libya. Al-Shabaab… All fell flat, compared to our erstwhile partner in the Dance of Death. 

Yes, America failed to find a new enemy, so we had to gag on our pride and return to our comfort zone of fear: Russia.

As the swallows have no choice but to return to Capistrano, America’s destiny always lay back in Russia. We’ve longed to return to hatred and fear of Russia since the days of Mikhail Gorbachev, who ruined everything for us. Without Russia, whatever went wrong in America had to get blamed on… us! Nooooooooooo!!! Not that!!!!

Did you ever wonder about those couples who marry, then divorce, then get back together again, then divorce, then… on and on? Wonder no more! We have returned to our Number One enemy and it goes down like Mac and Cheese for many people.

Old enemies soothe us as nothing else can. So when all the election year fear-mongering hit a boiling point, it quite naturally spilled all over dear old mother Russia. It had to. Predictability-wise, nothing comes close.  The electioneering fear that filled us drove us right back to our DUCK & COVER, “better dead than red” training.

Now see how happy it makes people? John McCain looks positively orgasmic! President Obama gets a new chance to please his parents’ generation. Liberals can now call anyone who disagrees with them TRAITORS! Conservatives can say WE TOLD YOU SO! The bile and vodka have commenced to flow in an orgy of hate and fear. Just like the old days. Our NATIONAL RELIGION HAS RETURNED.

And the benefits have already begun! We have no more internal problems in the Home of the Brave! THE RUSSIANS INSTIGATED EVERYTHING! We have clean hands… No matter what goes wrong, THE RUSSIANS DID IT!

brazile
Oh happy day! Old-Timers have joy on their faces as they slam THE EVIL EMPIRE once again. Younger people can now score points with Gramps as they regurgitate the fears and hatreds of the past, all joining hands again in blast of retro-paranoia. 
After decades stumbling in the wilderness, a generation of Americans trained to hate and fear Russia has at last made it back home.

To those who cannot cope with reality as adults, and need to return to the safety of their long-gone childhood, it must feel so damn good.

We can now bask in a warm wave of nostalgia for the bad old days.
Our world has returned to normal.
We can forsake adulthood and return to a childhood where we never have to accept responsibility.

HOORAY!!! We now have the right to hate Russia. Again.

About The Election…

December 8, 2016

This is all I will say on the election for quite some time:

As I listen to noted “progressives” and “leftists” currently bemoaning the election of Donald Trump, it becomes clear that they think we had a marvelously progressive, 180º opposite, Democratic candidate in November and we blew it by picking Hitler.

Don’t they recall what the choice really was?

In setting the record straight, a phrase beloved of Mrs. Clinton’s acolytes as they distorted her record of war and under-achievement, I can only repeat some facts:

1) Polling consistently showed that nearly 60% of Trump voters DO NOT support him. They voted for him only as a way of stopping Hillary Clinton. All the hand-wringing over the “racists” and “nazis” and “angry white people” who allegedly voted for Trump crumbles when this is taken into consideration. But it never is mentioned. It is far easier to demonize and rationalize than to analyze.

2) Scared because Trump denies environmental science? The Democrat “alternative” was also a science denier – one must be a denier in order to support fracking. So we had ZERO choice there.

3) Trump will start WW3? The Democrat “alternative” was also a war-mongering, China threatening, candidate as we witness in her own words: “Russia’s hacked into a lot of things. China’s hacked into a lot of things. Russia even hacked into the Democratic National Committee, maybe even some state election systems. So, we’ve got to step up our game. Make sure we are well defended and able to take the fight to those who go after us. As President, I will make it clear, that the United States will treat cyber attacks just like any other attack. We will be ready with serious political, economic and military responses.”
And then we have her stated desire to “ring China with missile defense” to protect against North Korea and set up a no-fly zone in Syria (where she personally sabotaged a cease-fire), and to rig elections in other nations. She publicly supported the concept and execution of covert wars of regime change.  Zero choice there.

4) Aghast that Trump nominated people from Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street banks to his proposed cabinet? Have we already forgotten the $22,000,000 Wall Street Banks paid to Clinton in just under 24 months? You think they did that with no expectation of results? Again, ZERO choice.

5) Opposing dangerous pipelines an issue? Have we also forgotten the millions of dollars Mrs. Clinton snatched up for speeches made in Canada where she spoke in direct support of the Keystone XL pipeline?  Zero choice again.

6) Libya, Syria, Honduras… and the “progressives” think we mistakenly elected a war-monger? We had no choice BUT to elect one.

7) Worried about the privatization (destruction) of Social Security under Trump? Again, ZERO choice in that regard. Clinton repeatedly spoke of means-testing social security as a way to make it over as welfare for the “neediest recipients,” as she phrased it. And she has a track record, through the Democratic Leadership Council and her support of her “co-president’s” welfare reform, of gutting the safety net. How long before she’d have talked in glowing terms of “ending Social Security as we know it”?

8) Afraid we will lose our precious constitutional rights under Trump? If so… where have you been? Hillary Clinton made her campaign a vote on continuing the Obama legacy. Look at the rights that man took away as he gleefully continued and expanded the “W” legacy. Think SNOWDEN. On this point, I agree with friend John Hubbard who noted that fighting for our rights mean nothing if WW3 busts out, and, as noted above, Clinton showed all the signs of itching to start the Big One. Trump may be a threat to many treasured government protections and programs. Hillary was, as the pentagon calls them, an EXISTENTIAL threat to our very survival. Her insane plans for a no-fly zone in Syria (where the crumbling, feeble ISIS doesn’t have a single aircraft) was meant to provoke the Russians – who in her demented view are the bullies standing between herself and the love her mother denied her. Eliminating this crazy person was priority #1. We took care of that. Now on to fighting Trump if you disagree with him. At least we are alive to do it.

9) Don’t know where Trump stands on issues from day to day? He seems “unpredictable”? Ok. How do you know where Clinton stands? I refer you to WikiLeaks and Clinton’s stunning admission that she holds one position in public and another in private. There is no way of knowing what, aside from her own ambition, Clinton believes in. Again, ZERO choice.

10) Here is the bottom line as I see it: Because of corporate media collusion with the two dominant parties, we had a pair of crappy candidates to decide between. Either way we were going to get a crappy president. With Trump, we got a crappy president AND we got rid of the money grubbing, influence peddling Clinton “dynasty” – including the atrocious Rodham Brothers (conveniently hidden this time around). That is called taking lemons and making lemonade.

—-

Acting as though America elected a despot – when there were two despots running for Imperial President – misses the point and evinces a peculiar form of denial.

Given the choice we had, not the choice we wish we had – to paraphrase old Rumsfeld – I believe the nation made the only proper decision. We shattered Bill Clinton, Inc. and showed the democrats that they cannot run hacks from the past and expect their traditional voters to support them.

Now that voters have eliminated the neo-liberal DLC candidate, we will turn our concentration to the task neutralizing the objectionable parts of Trump’s neo-Reagan agenda.

But that takes work, and it requires letting go of the constant parade of fake predictions that fill news outlets (even as they whine about “fake news”) as if we have not endured 16 straight years of the very things people now claim only Trump will suddenly bring.

Work.

Not whining about the election.

Work.

Not the Oppression Olympics, which says that only certain people have a right to say they will suffer under Trump.

Work.

If you oppose Trump, you have just UNDER TWO YEARS to flip the congress.

That is the same amount of time Hillary Clinton devoted to getting her $22,000,000 from Wall Street.

The End of the Neoliberal DLC! Or… Is It?

November 18, 2016

As the Withers (I Am With HER!) scramble to assign blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss, pointing out a new villain every day, I encountered one article that truly attempts to show what happened and why.

Who is to blame?

The Democratic Leadership Council is to blame.

Gone now, after the election, but as with Greek tragedy the ending was implicit in the beginning.

The DLC was conceived by Southern Democrats as a way to attract the Reagan Republicans to the failing democratic party. Screw traditional Democratic values, these people only wanted to WIN. At any cost.

So the DLC hijacked the names Democrat and Liberal to advance a decidedly conservative agenda. Hence NEOLIBERAL (an older term) being applied to them.

screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-2-59-41-pm

This article, CLICK HERE, looks at the arc of history and rightly concludes: “Despite being a historically weak candidate, Hillary Clinton’s demise wasn’t just about Hillary Clinton. Clinton was the final lifeline to a neoliberal bubble built by the Clintons and many others — that finally popped on November 8th, 2016.”

Yes, it took decades to demolish this rightist movement but The People finally saw through it. Running Hillary – a candidate who links right back to the core of the conservative Bill Clinton agenda – was their first mistake and it was a humdinger. Running Hillary gave us a reason to look backwards and reassess the Clinton years. They should have run someone younger, but the DLC neoliberals only have oldsters. And Hillary, as Christopher Hitchens once noted, needed to run for therapeutic reasons of her own (mostly relating to her abusive parents and, well, MONICA). Had the DLC even one YOUNGER candidate, and ran that person, they may possibly have won.
Hillary’s candidacy opened a can of worms and she knew it, which is why she didn’t hold a full press conference in almost a year. 
She was not willing to have the past (meaning HISTORY) on trial. Even while touting her “achievements,” she showed dread of the past.

So while the Withers scramble for a patsy, the article I link to in this post shows who was to blame for her loss.  Unlike the drivel emerging from the keening of grief-stricken Withers, this article does not seek a convenient scapegoat. It shows the history of the neoliberal DLC movement.

Clearly, running the WIFE of one of the DLC founders was an act of hubris. It was the old people leaping from the grave. It reminded me of Christopher Lee’s Dracula, yanking the stake from his heart in one more doomed effort to live forever. Greek tragedy…

I suspect the Clintons are not going to give up. After all, Hilary prides herself on never quitting – the direct result of an abusive mother throwing her out of the house at age FOUR –  so there will likely be a 4th Act for the Clintons, even after the rest of the DLC sublimates and vanishes, like a sickly sweet AirWick canister.

For a number of reasons, I suspect they will try to use their clinging daughter as an arm of their ego, and promote her as the NEW! YOUNG! face of neoliberalism. There is too much money at stake what with all the various Clinton Foundations. Their whole influence-peddling, pay-to-play racket crumbles when there isn’t a Clinton in office somewhere…
screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-3-20-25-pmSo odds are it will be their daughter who now has to carry the load of her parents’ ambition. Putting ones’ needs ahead of the needs of the offspring is the very definition of an abusive parent. But can’t you hear them?
“Well, kid. It is up to you now….”

And then they will oh-so-gently remind Chelsea of all that they did for her, and all that she has. This is the bargain she made with them in exchange for EVERYTHING she ever got in life. Chelsea’s string of high paying jobs, delivered to her because of who her parents are, was more than crony-capitalism. It was the Faustian Bargain by which this person sold her life away. Now she is hooked. She OWES them. And they will collect even if it kills their only child.

Look for more appearances by Chelsea. The Foundations will give her a more visible part to play. And her parents will market Chelsea as though she is the New COKE… but remember what happened to that.

Never Trust a “Cold-War Liberal”

October 7, 2016

14611160_10202360169643397_7715071107652487310_n

Never trust a “Cold-War Liberal”
They are war-happy.
You can spot them by the repeated warnings they issue about Russia and China.
Mostly Russia.
Cold-War Liberals live in the past.
In a dangerous past.
But to them, in their old age, in their dotage, it is a glorious past.
They are elderly now and the past is all they have left.
It is who they are, because it is who they were.
They cannot look forward.
This is not a game.
The world needs new ideas and new plans.
The end result of the vaunted “thirty years of experience” Withers cite for their candidate is where we are right now.
The people who put us here, right here, where we are right now, did so deliberately and they will not change things.
Unless we got here by accident, in which case, that “thirty years of experience” means absolutely nothing.
And if you want to see change: YOU ARE A SOCIALIST TOOL OF PUTIN AND CHINA!!!!
You know you have heard this empty imprecation again and again.
So how can you expect change from someone who denounces change?
See how cold-war senility works?
They got away with that garbage in the 50s and 60s.
They saw their dead parents doing it.
So the Cold-War Liberals need to relive their youth.
But their youth has evanesced.
It is no more.
It is gone.
Elect a Cold-War Liberal aching to recreate her or his heyday of youth and potency, and there will be war, misery, and blood.
The day of the Cold-War Liberal is over.
THIS is what the exemplary Cold-War Liberal had to say about war:
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. This much we pledge–and more.”
That means regime change.
That means war.
That is from a liberal hero.
55 years ago.
We step back to those days at our own peril.
The world is different now. We cannot attack with impunity.
People hit back.
Remember that:
People hit back.

UPDATE:

Now the NY Times reports that Hillary Clinton, in a secret speech revealed by WikiLeaks, has announced her passion for SECRET WARS (click here).
She touts the joys of “covert-intervention,” to use the NY Times euphemism.
Covert-Actions. 
CoIntelPro was covert action
Installing the Shah as dictator of Iran was covert action
Killing Salvador Allende was covert action
Overthrowing Guatemala was covert action
The Bay of Pigs was covert action
The bloodthirsty School of the Americas was covert action
LBJ’s Operation Chaos was covert action
Sabotaging the Democratic Primary was TYPICAL covert action
Henry Kissinger is covert action personified
And Mrs. Clinton LIKES THIS?
Wants MORE of it?
Is she insane?
The Times writes: “Mrs. Clinton gave a tough-minded, realpolitik answer to the question of how to handle a problem like Syria. If the best chance of success was to act secretly inside that country, she made clear, she had no problem doing that.”
Oh… She has no problem doing that?
Unfortunately THE WORLD HAS A PROBLEM WITH YOU DOING THAT, you war-crazy maniac!
Mission Impossible was FANTASY.
I will not vote for more wars.
Especially secret wars. You know, like NIXON IN CAMBODIA which led to this:

1971
This is a democracy, despite what this Cold War Neoliberal thinks.
As to the Times: saying her call to secret war is “tough-minded, realpolitik” is not journalism, it is editorializing. You are putting lipstick on that pig.

How much more NIXONIAN will Clinton reveal herself to be?
She may well take the White House, this bloodthirsty Cold War Neoliberal, but not with my consent.

new-nixon

FURTHER UPDATE:

Late in October, Tim Kaine CONFIRMED that Hillary’s first action will be to ask Congress for unlimited war powers.
As with all neocons, which the Cold War Liberals have spawned, Hillary actually believes that in wartime the nation will unite. She is a big step into the past. Cold War Liberals are in their dotage now and should just take the gold watch then go home to their republican grandchildren.

Lesser? Evil? My Hypothetical Scenario…

February 28, 2016

What an unconventional election season!

So many WHAT IFs being tossed about.
More hypotheticals than facts, it seems.

Well here is my hypothetical scenario…
Can you answer it?
GOP candidates have begun making Trump look foolish. Rubio recently mopped up the floor with him.
Trump has no tolerance for people who push back.
In 2001, angered by republicans, he became a democrat.

He barely has 32% support in the GOP.
So… What if he does it again? Becomes a democrat?
Let’s say he does.  And he sweeps the primaries – which he has shown is possible even with little support.
He is the dem’s nominee.

This move leaves the GOP in disarray.
BEN CARSON takes the lead.
He squeaks by and becomes the GOP nominee.

I have seen so many people set up a hypothetical race then DEMAND that in this hypothetical race we vote for a candidate we dislike because… well, we must. Because our democracy is at stake! SCOTUS!!
S/he is bad, they admit, but not as bad as any republican. And… our democracy is at stake! SCOTUS!!
Voting for anyone else is a “wasted protest vote” and will make a republican the winner.
So my question to the lovers of hypotheticals is:
Trump v. Carson in November…
No begging the question.

Who gets your vote?

Why The Violence And Anger?

October 7, 2015

Gun violence is again, sadly, in the news. Mass shootings are on the upswing even though crime is, overall, continuing to go down.

Politics has become more angry and divisive than ever.

People ask: How did this happen?

More important is: WHEN did this happen.

History shows us

The powers that be promote fear and hatred of an enemy. They believe that this promotes unity and a national sense of purpose. When the USSR collapsed, America was left with millions of frightened people who had nobody left to fear and hate. This is why the PTB wrote, before 9/11/01, about the need for a “new Pearl Harbor.” This was written in 1997 as the manifesto of the pompously named Think Tank, “The Project for the New American Century ” – run by people like Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld… and then we all know what happened when they were in the White House…

Having an external enemy is something people like this feel is vital for a national identity. So we get feeble attempts at demonizing nations – or lame terror groups like ISIS – because they seriously think we need an enemy at all times. In lieu of a named enemy, we have free-floating anxiety and Americans turn on each other.
This is why so many of our neighbors are armed to the teeth.
They have been taught to fear The Other since childhood.
We are still paying for the brainwashing of the Cold War.
Pay attention to the people who want to be president and see how so many of them promote fear. When we fear, we lose the ability to think clearly. And this is what these people want. Why?

This 3-part BBC documentary explains how and why governments do this.
Click the image to see it. And you will know how these insane people think.
Remember what John Lennon so pointedly observed: “Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.”

Now, in the absence of an enemy – America is an asylum filled with violent, deranged people. And our own government did it to us, with the help of sick people for what they consider the national good. We are living the results of generations of fear and hatred. Why, we even have whole “news” networks on TV which do nothing but scream out impending disaster just to keep us in fear.

This is not new, and neither PNAC nor the pornographer Rupert Murdoch with his FOX “news” should get no credit for originality. In 1919 a book came out which showed people how fear twists their lives.

Almost a century later it still applies. The book has been reissued – and I wrote the new introduction. I urge all to get hold of this slim volume HERE or click the image below. Although some will try to dissuade you from reading this book, because they fear it, I think it is a “must-read” to see how fear twists people without them even knowing it.

SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE? IT’S IN THE BIBLE! (again)

September 6, 2015

I posted this back in 2012, but with the hypocritical ignoramuses in the republican party (formally called “candidates”) howling about “religious freedom” and how it trumps the Constitution, I thought it time to revive it. These bigoted loudmouths know nothing of their beloved bible.

     It is the religious right wing loud mouths who always can be counted upon to a) demand that we obey the Holy Bible and b) make the claim that there is no such thing as separation of Church & State in America because those words are not in the Constitution. Never mind that this separation was primary on the minds of those who wrote the Constitution. Forget that this separation is what made the United States of America absolutely unique in the history of Western “civilization.” And the hell with the facts that the United States Supreme Court has consistently held that such a separation exists. Throw all that away if you wish.  Let us see what the Bible itself has to say on the subject:

     As Moses is ready to die and the Israelites prepare to enter the Promised Land, Moses grows concerned that there the tribes have no leader to keep the people from anarchy. So, being Moses, he consults God. Here is what happens in the King James Version of the Holy Bible:

Numbers, 27:15-23

And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,

Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,

Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.

And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;

And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.

And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.

And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.

And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:

And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

    Do you get what happened? Moses puts Joshua in charge of the people and has Aaron’s son Eleazar in charge of the priesthood. Moses and, more to the point, GOD ALMIGHTY have vested two separate people with the powers of Church & State. It is right there in the Good Book.  Joshua is in charge of the people and Eleazar is in charge of tending into God’s judgment. It’s all there in black and white.

    As long as the religious literalists insist that the Bible is a history book, and as long as they insist that it is God’s “divine plan” for humanity, silly claims but they make them nonetheless, then we see by example that God wants the power of the state separated from the power if the religious establishment. There is no getting around it.

    UPDATE: Further driving the point home is 1 Samuel, 13:8-14 where King Saul, tired of waiting for the arrival of Samuel the priest, makes his own burnt offering. When Samuel arrives all hell breaks loose. Why? Because Saul has usurped the power of the clergy and thus violated the biblical separation of Church & State.
Can it be any more clear?

Separation of Church and State… It’s In The Bible!

Another Fake Media “Crisis”

January 27, 2015

So SUPER-STORM JUNO came and went with a fizzle. I knew this storm was another Ebola-style media “crisis” when I heard an NPR “reporter” gravely announce: “Some say we will get winds of 75mph.” 
The phrase SOME SAY means: “I just made this up.” And when I saw that BREITBART reported a huge, horrible storm, then I knew for sure there was nothing to feel concerned about. Government officials need to stop relying on TV and Internet “news” for their decisions. 
This shrill hysteria – hysteria that had desperate people crashing into supermarkets – was not erring on the side of caution. It was erring on the side of ratings. 
Orson Welles and his historic War of the Worlds broadcast showed that some people will believe anything that mass media puts out. 
Ever since then, they have whipped up one fake fear-crisis after another. In the last year, between the phony EBOLA panic and yesterday’s totally over-hyped SUPERSTORM JUNO, it seems clear that we need congressional hearings on these over-paid buffoons who claim to report news. And don’t get me started on WORST JOURNALIST Don Lemon tooling about the deserted streets of New York in his fatuous BlizzardMobile.
Oh well.  Now that every storm is an event and has to have a name, what comes next, a theme song?

With all this in mind, I present this post again:

Doing Something About The Weather

Well, not really about the weather, but about the weather forecast. Yesterday, here in NYC rain was predicted yet it never came. Today they said it would be warm, the temperature will not see 60°. Yes, they do get it wrong way too often. Surveys show them at best accurate 75% of the time. That is why they hedge their bets by saying “there’s a 50% chance of rain” meaning it will rain or it won’t. Thanks guys. It’s ALWAYS going to rain or not. As a Tarot reader if I had the dismal record of a TV/Radio weatherman, I would have no clients. And deservedly so. Just listen to my Tarot reading show (Rev. Eliot’s Magickal Window) at the ask1radio archive – or live at 11 Eastern Time on Wednesday nights – to see for yourself how accurate I am. I don’t need to trumpet my accuracy when it is there for people to hear. But why can’t weather predicting pros, with all their satellites and gazillions of dollars worth of equipment, not measure up to me, a plain, old fashioned Tarot reader? So here is my plan – and you can join me:

I am going to use occult means to predict the weather and compare it with the professionals. For a period of time I will use a pendulum to see if I may divine the weather. I found a weather-related pendulum chart on-line and I will print it out and use it. I will ask at night about the next day and then verify in the morning. And I will check during the day, keeping meticulous records. And then I will report back. Try it yourself and let me know what happens. Here is the chart (click on it to enlarge, then grab it):

Keep me posted! Let’s see who gets better results – Mr. Blow-Dry with his maps, or the simple Esoteric Pendulum. Maybe we can all get jobs in TV predicting the weather!

What “Outbreak”?

October 24, 2014
This Dimwit Says Ebola Fever Is Obama's Fault. But I Heard Somebody MORE STUPID THAN HE IS!

This Dimwit Says Ebola Fever Is Obama’s Fault. But I Heard Somebody MORE STUPID THAN HE IS!

Well, last night I heard the single most incompetent “expert” talking on the radio about – yes – Ebola Fever.
First off, this twit “debunked” as false the notion that nobody is infected until they get a high fever and stomach pain. He wondered why people make this claim. “Viruses don’t work that way,” he said. He said it is nonsense. OF BLOODY COURSE IT IS NONSENSE! The dope confused CONTAGIOUS with INFECTED. And, yes… those who contract Ebola Fever are not – REPEAT NOT – contagious until they are so deep into the disease that they cannot get around let alone go bowling.

Then this bonehead said this “outbreak” will be like the 1918 flu epidemic which killed AND I QUOTE: “fifty-two hundred million people.” That is 5.2 BILLION people. Neat trick when the world population in 1917 was 1.85 billion (1,849,769,000 to be precise). And look: TWO PEOPLE getting a disease while tending a sick person is not an outbreak. That is it for now… ONLY TWO – 2 – AMERICANS CONTRACTED THIS DISEASE HERE. More Americans have married Elizabeth Taylor.
Do NOT pay any attention to the people who deliberately spread fear and/or who are FUCKING IDIOTS.

And though it may disappoint the more nervous among us, you may want to read THIS ARTICLE which explains why you will not get this disease…

Now: as to that alleged 70% death rate? FORGET IT. That is for a Third World nation ravaged by war without adequate food and water – with one doctor per 200,000 people. IN AMERICA and other “modern” nations – for a person with adequate hydration and diet the death rate of this disease is 20%.

Your parents or grandparents knew what an outbreak REALLY was. They faced polio every goddamn year, and smallpox and diptheria and waves of both influenza and pneumonia (before we had any antibiotics!) without shitting their pants like hysterical babies. So if they could deal with that, YOU can deal with a new disease that has so far hit only TWO Americans. Good grief, FLU will kill 45,000 Americans this year. Does that worry you? Did you even bother to get a flu shot?

Do NOT give in to fear and fear mongers. Using fear is nothing new. The TV “news” people use fear to boost their ratings and make more money. Fear is their stock-in-trade. And they spread it rich and thick like manner  in a Iowa cornfield. They scare you out of greed and in order to control you. Apparently, it works.
An excellent book was written about this back in 1919 – you know, back after 5.2 billion people died… Ha! The book has been reissued and I wrote the all-new foreword. I recommend it. Click the image to read about it.

LATE NEWS: One of only TWO people to contract Ebola Fever in the USA is just fine! Read about it HERE.
As I noted in above, in a modern culture not ravaged by war and pestilence, Ebola Fever has an 80% survival rate.
 
Dallas nurse Nina Pham is one of only TWO people to contract the disease in the USA yet people are scared to death. This is insanity in action.

Judge harshly ANYONE you know who fears Ebola Fever in the USA. People THAT easily frightened are easily manipulated and they are extremely dangerous.
