Liberals fail US again

Friends,

It keeps getting crazier.

Liberals keep failing US.

Ebola is attacking. One week they say there is no risk, so import more Africans with Ebola. Today, they say, “Panic. The nurse made a mistake.”

Well, the nurse does not design the protocols.

CDC failed US by letting in the casualty (patient). The CDC failed to ensure proper quarantine protocols on the patient. The hospital failed the nurse by not using a buddy team to decontaminate her as she took her gear off.

Now we will pay the cost.

But, they will blame the illegal Mexican for the Ebola crisis. Even though, they have nothing to do with this crisis.

What do you think?

Russians continue to invade Ukraine

Friends,

In case you think the Russian propaganda is accurate, here is a Russian admitting 90% of the troops under him are Russian, just like he is.

- What is the relation to your business and local Russians?

- In our group 90% of the Russians, and the rest – the citizens of Donetsk. They call themselves Russian. Of Russian Urals half, half – Siberians.

- Why are not local?

- Sam in shock: they go to Russia, and we come here! They do not want their land to protect! Yesterday I was one my grandfather said, “Yes, I do not care, who will only be paid a pension.” War veteran, all in awards and medals. My jaw dropped, I have nothing more to say but could not. What to say to the person who has the medals, and he does not care, who will pay a pension – or our fascists.

Translated by translate.google.com on 11 Oct 2014.

A former soldier, a businessman, a friend of President Putin’s, he tells everyone he is just a simple ‘peasant.’

Scary. Most of my Russian friends do not hate Ukraine. But, the Russians who do hate Ukraine more than make up for those who do not.

Don’t you think?

Should we follow China?

Friends,

With all the news about China’s economy surpassing US this week, I am surprised about that. I thought they told US last year China was 10 years behind US; but with all that news, did your news outlet mention what China is doing to control their media?

China is banning moral deviants (my choice of word) from TV. Actors guilty of drug use or prostitution are being banned from influencing children.

Would this be better for US than our current crazy Hollywood?

Ebola

Friends,

Have you noticed the news is causing fear about Ebola?

Well, Twitter, like Wiki, is adding fuel to the flame.

How bad is Ebola? Do you remember the last real epidemic? SARS? Well Ebola is worse than SARS was.

Some will try to use the R(naught) modeling tool. That model says SARS may be worse. R(4) compared to an official R(1.8).

I do doubt the low R(1.8), but it is a modeling tool. It does not tell us the true ‘virulence’ of the disease. Patient numbers within a general population tell us that.

Over a similar time period, SARS infected 8100 people, Ebola has infected 15,000. At this stage of the SARS epidemic, SARS ceased. Stopped. And there have been no more cases. Ebola has not started slowing down, yet.

The targeted populations are also different. SARS hit cities in China. Those cities were better prepared. Ebola has devastated villages and cities in western Africa. They were not prepared. But, SARS spread within a much larger and denser population.

SARS had a 9.5% fatality rate. This epidemic of Ebola is around 50%.

It is difficult to compare diseases. But, I would say Ebola is much more dangerous than SARS, and it seems easier to catch.

Will you change your life because of Ebola?

Ebola.

SARS.

Stopping the Ebola pandemic.

I love Mexico

Friends,

I talked with a beautiful young woman tonight.  One thing led to another, and we were chatting about Mexico.

I love Mexico.  The language, the people, the culture, and the history.

So.

If you get the chance, check out San Miguel de Allende.  Great history, and lots of Americans, so you won’t be drowned if it is your first foray into Mexico.  And AWESOME things to do and see.

Tell everyone over at Mexico Spanish, I said ‘Hola.’

I had three of the instructors, Soccorro, Enrique, and Jorge.

Great people. I think I need to run down for a refresher.

It is about time for all of the rodeo festivities.

ISIS murders hundreds of Iraqi soldiers

Friends,

Sunday, ISIS slaughtered 400 to 500 Iraqi soldiers at an isolated military base. The ISIS pierced the base’s defenses in multiple locations. Several groups of Iraqi soldiers fought their way through the terrorists. About 50% of those soldiers got through to a nearby base.

Islamic State attack on Iraqi soldiers.

Wow. After massive strikes against the terrorists’ command, control, communications, and intelligence (C3I) locations, they still conducted a massive strike against a fixed defender.

For all of CNN’s ‘experts’ saying that these guys are not able to do this or that, they just did something that al-Qaeda was not able to do to the US Army in Afghanistan.

You can claim that the Iraqi soldiers did not want to fight very well. You can claim they were not the best. But, they should have been about equal fighters to their enemy …. Because, they knew, it was fight or die.

What do you think?

RattleSNAKE!!!

Friends,

I’ll take a photo when my pulse slows down!

I move the water hose, and think is that a pile of dog poop in my grass? That is one sick dog.

I straighten up. Wait. Is that a plastic toy?

Whoa!

Did I see a tongue move?

What do I do???

Call 911?

Call an exterminator?

Pray?

RUN?

I think, It is in striking distance, diamond shape skin. I am wearing flip flops – NEVER do that again! Get ready to move right foot back and be ready to run.

GO!

Into the garage I run. No good killing tools, they are out back. Door locked.

Run around towards front door. 6 feet from snake… still there.

Inside the door, I pulled my right boot on, left boot would only go half way on. Boots are meant for socks.

I run out the back door.

I see a hoe and a lawn aerator. PERFECT, I scream in my head.

I run back to the front yard. What did I see?

SNAKE!

Still coiled up ready to strike.

I pause about 45 seconds to adjust aerator for best pinning shot. I STRIKE!

GOT IT! It seems to be only partially pinned. I keeps hiding under the aerator.

I tap. And I tap.

This is not working.

CHOP.

It strikes out trying to run.

From the long arm of Judge Roy Bean, ‘Law west, and east of the Pecos?’

NEVER.

Chop. chop.

chop chop.

CHOP!

WHEW! I think I need a cool down. Blog it. Then shoot it (not with the .45’s, the camera!)”

Would you have shoot it with a 1911 .45? Or, do you wish it had been a politician?

Poverty in America is rich everywhere else.

Friends,

I have blogged about this topic before. And I will link back to that article. [I am still looking through my old posts. I didn't know I had that many.]

But, this focus is a little different than my previous blog post.

In that post, I focused on mere numbers. Simple mathematics. Everyone in the USA is in the top 10% of the world’s wealth. I think that number was actually the top 2% of the entire world.

This post is about a slightly different method of measuring ‘wealth’ and ‘rich.’

Instead of ‘money’ what do someone in ‘poverty’ in the US ‘have.’

From the Heritage Foundation.

I was looking for a different article, and it is difficult to search for real data on American poverty. But, all I found was this article.

So, most of US are shown pictures of starving children. We are told in the Media that all the poor are homeless. They live in shelters, and they live in their cars (if they are ‘lucky.’)

But, that is FAR from the truth.

Our (non-working) poor, I hope these are on the very bottom, are RICH. Not just in terms of the world today, but in the history of the USA.

Just 50 years ago, only the richest Americans had air conditioning. The rest were lucky if they had fans. 100 years ago, only the very richest had a car. And those cars usually had hand cranks. And no air conditioning, radio, or CD players.

The poor in America have an average housing space which is significantly larger than the average in Europe (AVERAGE). That means our ‘poor’ live in much larger homes than the middle class in Europe.

They have TV’s. And the internet. And CABLE TV, or satellite. And cell phones.

Cable – at least $100 a month ($1200 / year) after tax money. Internet, at least $50 / month ($600 / year). And a cell phone $600 / year.

But, the biggest difference?

The poor in America have cars and air-conditioning.

They may struggle to pay for their cars, gas, cell-phones, Internet, computers, TV’s, and air conditioning, but they have all of that.

Food is not even a worry. They do not worry day to day about ‘food.’

Real poverty? Those people worry the rest of their lives about food day to day. Even when they get beyond poverty, they hoard food.

So, why are we led to believe that the ‘poor’ in America are in such dire circumstances?

Because that makes poverty a crisis.

And a crisis means the elite get the opportunity for more control. POWER.

Both the ‘right’ and the ‘left’ are guilty of this.

As I have blogged in the past, welfare is 1/3rd of our Federal Deficit. Cut that in half, and you balance the budget and begin paying off the debt. And you are only back to 2008 spending levels.

When people worry about spending on computers, internet, and phones, we are spending TOO MUCH on welfare.

Don’t you agree?

Wayne
PS The article I looked for mentioned that about 50% of people on means tested welfare are buying their own homes.

Someday, I should post this link for a separate post. Govt hides 1 in 5 welfare families do not work in any manner.

Immigrants get a lot of welfare

Friends,

I grew up on the border. And I have always sympathized for Mexican Americans wanting a better life in the USA. Many ‘Mexicans’ are from here, and are stigmatized by those from the northern 48 states as ‘illegals.’

Oh well.

But, studies still indicate illegal and legal immigrants receive a lot in welfare benefits.

CIS study, accessed September 2014.

The sad part not pointed out in the study? Many of the immigrants receiving assistance are NOT Mexicans. They are Muslims.

I do not know how to separate the two ethnic groups. The Liberals are busy importing Muslim ‘refugees’ even though they are linked to terrorist groups. They have imported about 2.5 Million ‘refugees.’ But, they always talk about the ‘illegal’ problem.

Personally, I think we need a 10 year hold on immigration. We need to fix our economy, and make our jobs work for Americans. But, some will think that is too radical.

What do you think?

Welfare pays better than a job in 35 states

Friends,

The CATO institute’s study is attacked by both liberals and conservatives.

But, I got this data from Welfare payout statistics will make [you] really angry/.

In 35 states you can make more money on welfare than you can working. And a whole lot more money than folks in other states who are working.

So, why don’t we fix the problem? Because Liberals want to raise the minimum wage.

You must love their devious plan.

If wages in the US remain at their current levels, jobs will return to the US. But, THEY WANT JOBS TO GO AWAY. So, what have they done? They raised welfare to above what a worker makes, so now we must feel sorry for the worker and give them pay hikes ….

So, their jobs will got to China.

Okay. I understand the economics, and the politics. But, what about the simple facts?

People who work contribute to society? Workers are happier? And the biggest?

Workers PAY TAXES ….

I thought the Liberals WANTED more tax money?
