John Oliver takes down the sugar industry:
Obama : For God’s sake we need a travel ban from West Africa and a quarantine for 21 days of every American who comes back from the region. We will have a panic if this doctor spread it to even one more person. Decisive action must be taken.
UPDATE: The story/timeline of who is quarantined and who is not makes no sense. 4 people the doctor came in contact with are under quarantine. 2 friends, his girlfriend and an Ubur car driver. All came in contact with him Wednesday. BUT we are told not to worry about everyone else…which included people in 2 bowling alleys and 2 subway trains. I promise you if the UBUR car driver is a concern then everyone on the subways ought to be too. If you’ve been on a New York subway you know you are in closer contact with others than with a cab driver when riding in a cab. Why is the driver quarantined… if he was asymptomatic yesterday? Something does not add up.
Will the Obamas move to L.A. so Michelle can run for Feinstein’s seat when she retires? I doubt it. They could well move to Rancho Mirage. Or Santa Barbara. L.A.? No. Continue reading
I’m not entirely convinced the GOP has a headlock on the midterm. It would not be surprising if they won big next month. The party of a President 6 years in does tend to lose big. 1966 was a big GOP year. Nixon got run out of town in his 6th year. Reagan’s team lost the Senate in 1986. W got spanked in 2006. Clinton is the exception – but Obama is no Bubba. History suggests a big night for the GOP come the midterms.
If we just scream “Benghazi!” loud enough, we win – Continue reading
At least the admin is upfront about how they view Ebola: “What we were looking for was not an Ebola expert, but rather; an implementation expert, and that’s exactly what Ron Klain is.”…that is the White House tweet on the appointment of Ron Klain to be “Ebola Czar”. It’s creepy if you think about it. The people in charge feel free to admit that the person they put in charge of containing Ebola knows nothing about Ebola. This is an endgame result of “progressives” (not liberals, mind you, “progressives”.) being in charge for too long. They honestly and very sincerely believe they know better about all things..and us wee folk need to be calm and follow them.
I find it hard to believe there is not a single talented physician or nurse administrator in this nation that could not have been tapped. This whole thing reeks of a last minute “Hey, get that guy, he’s smart” moment.
I do hope Klain does a good job. Given the track record of the last “person who knew better” (she was in charge of HHS) I’m not optimistic. Fingers crossed? Yes. Expectations: Low. I mean, I could have does a better job with the Obamacare website rollout with 50 grand and a laptop… at a Days Inn with free wifi…a little bit high…in my boxers…
