Work Around the Clock = Thinking of Golf

We have to play nice with ISIL because they are Muslims...?

I suspect that's why we bomb empty buildings at night and it's why we are allowing ISIL to capture the center of the Middle East. ISIL has almost completely circled Baghdad and are preparing for a final assault to take the city. There are hundreds of Americans in the Green Zone in Baghdad who will be fighting tens of thousands of ISIL troops -- The Americans with small arms, ISIL with armor.

In June: "My team is working around the clock"...We have to make sure "these Jihadists are not getting a permanent foothold in Iraq"

Back to the present:

(CBS News) BAGHDAD -- Militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have infiltrated one of Baghdad's outer suburbs, Abu Ghraib which is only eight miles from the runway perimeter of Baghdad's international airport.

It's cause for serious concern now that the Iraqi Defense Ministry has confirmed ISIS has MANPADs, shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles. American made Stinger Missiles, captured from the Iraqi army that we armed.
We all know that the Administration lies ALL OF THE TIME. They lied about the Benghazi Massacre, the IRS Targeting Scandal, Fast and Furious, ObamaCare, the EPA Scandal, and they are lying now.

Another Ebola Rant

Does Barack read his daily briefings on the ebola threat? Don't bet your
life on it.
However if you're going to give him a lot of money, he'll hop
a taxpayer funded airplane to fly and collect the check.
I've heard a lot of first-hand chatter from health officials about ebola. Most of them think that the US is being exceptionally reckless. You get a different spin outside of the US than you do from the mainstream media, and people are concerned.

It's true that the ebola scare may blow over. It's also possible that it will not. The Spanish Flu in the early part of the last century killed 10% of the people who contracted it - and it came to the US on passenger ships...just saying.
  1. Screening at a US port of entry is stupid. By the time they've been flying on an airplane with 350 other people, an ebola victim has infected all of them (potentially) and the airplane has to be parked somewhere remote. Everybody screening them has to be quarantined as well.
  2. Where does the US plan to house people who are being quarantined for 21 days? And once those domiciles are potentially infected, are you going to move other (potentially healthy quarantined people) in with them? How do you plan to feed isolated people with ebola? We know from the Spanish situation that even washing down suits in a "clean zone" can infect you with lethal ebola?
  3. This isn't small pox, for which there is an inoculation. Ebola has been around a long time and it wipes out regions in Africa periodically. Now with globalized travel it is becoming a serious international health issue. -- despite Barack's assurance that all is well and "remain calm". This isn't a racial thing. Yes, ebola grows and mutates in Africa, but it kills 60% of the healthy people with great healthcare that it infects.
Ebola isn't some Islamic movement that we can bomb back into the stone age...wait, they're living in the stone age...bomb to receive 72 black eye'd virgins. Yes, I know, Barack maintains stridently the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant is not an Islamic movement or caliphate. But as bad as it is, it's not ebola.

Riding on an airplane for 10 hours, even if I wear a cotton mask, if somebody on the plane has ebola, I'm technically a casualty and may die from the exposure of circulated air. If they vomit or deficate, it's even worse. They can get on an airplane with a mild fever and end up bleeding from the eyes as their guts liquify, puking their stomach contents all over the airplane by the time they land.
