Different Recruiting Pitches

The United States military offers the opportunity to defend freedom and protect the innocent. The Islamic State gives recruits the chance to deny freedom and kill the innocent. The American serviceman risks life to go all over the world to help as we see now in the fight against Ebola. The Islamic State jihadist wants to conquer the world and impose a global caliphate. Our troops have died liberating nations. IS terrorists die trying to impose militant benighted Wahhab fanaticism on anyone who believes differently. Only a nihilist would join IS, where butchery is justified by cloaking it as religious virtue. The US military attracts those who are willing to lay down life to guard liberty.

King Obama's Team

Barack Hussein Obama has surrounded himself with amazingly skilled underlings. He leads a group who can tell you all the liability issues involved in changing a light bulb. Team Obama can recite OSHA regulations chapter and verse about changing a light bulb. Obama and his henchmen (and women) can organize a union to prevent workers from being exploited when they have to change a light bulb. Obama and his cadre can draft a wonderful press release about the urgent need to change a light bulb with the White House press secretary able to harangue his listeners about how important it is to change that light bulb. In the process of all this, the light bulb still is not changed. For being the smartest administration ever, they can not seem to replace a dim bulb.

Voice of Reason

Barack Hussein Obama's administration is still clamoring for drastic measures to defeat man-caused global warming, which does not exist, while downplaying the threat of Ebola, which has killed thousands and is bound to kill even more. Global warming has vastly enriched many of the people promoting it. Compelling evidence that man was not causing the earth to heat up was suppressed by government and media. Grants were given to so-called "scientists" who supported the idea but denied to researchers who discovered evidence that man was not causing global warming. Ebola really kills fifty to seventy percent of those who contract it. Obama is so committed to open borders amnesty that he will not exclude carriers of diseases that can kill from entering the country. Ebola is not the only disease threatening the US as the current outbreak of Enterovirus D68 seems to have its origins in Central America from which the United States has just experienced a surge of unaccompanied minors immigrating illegally. To have the nation devoting vast resources to fighting non-existent threats while giving lip service to fighting real threats to life is par for the course for the Obama administration.

Air Force One

If President Barack Hussein Obama is so confident that Ebola is hard to catch, might I suggest that he eschew Air Force One and take an airplane ride on the Frontier Airlines plane that the infected nurse flew from Cleveland to Dallas. Obama could also instill confidence by having a meet and greet where he kisses and hugs and shakes hands with the medical staff that has been treating Ebola patients. I believe that this disease is not quite as hard to catch as the Obama administration contends. At this point, with no vaccine and no cure for Ebola, the common sense method of keeping America safe from the virus is closing the border to potential carriers. Because this prescription to keep Americans safe might actually work, Obama will never do it. With Team Obama running the country, we have a warped administration that values political correctness over the very survival of the American people.

Kernel of Truth

Barack Hussein Obama and his flunkies are going the extra mile to assure the American public that they have little to be worried about over Ebola. This reassurance comes after Obama told America we were safe from Ebola. Claims about our safety were put into doubt after two nurses in Dallas contracted the dread disease. This plague has now forced the government to find and monitor a chain of hundreds of individuals pending the passage of time needed to insure they have not acquired the virus. Quarantine of hundreds or even thousands may await in the near future. Yet, still the Obama administration is issuing visas to enter the United States to Africans from the "Hot Zone". African nations surrounding the afflicted countries have closed their borders to nationals from Ebola-hit countries, but America will not. In the Ebola crisis, Barack Obama is putting millions of Americans needlessly at risk.

Worse Than Katrina

George W. Bush was roundly lambasted for his handling, or rather, what was regarded as his mishandling of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. What Barack Hussein Obama is doing or failing to do as regards Ebola is vastly worse. So far as I know, no human being or group of people can cause or stop a hurricane because a hurricane is an act of G-d. The spread of transmission of Ebola into the United States was preventable. It would have been as easy as suspending flights from the "Hot Zone" countries in Africa, and requiring anyone who had visited the disease-afflicted areas to go into a month-long quarantine in a secure environment as America used to maintain on Ellis Island until any danger that they were carrying Ebola had passed. I say a month because "experts" tell us Ebola will declare itself within twenty-one days if an individual is indeed infected. In the event, the Obama administration took exactly none of these common sense precautions and now we may have what would have been an avoidable global pandemic in our midst. I said on this forum back in 2008, "elect a Third World President and we will become a Third World nation". Little did I know he would bring a Third World plague upon us.

Tennessee Spare "Beau"

A dog in Dyersburg, Tennessee has been sentenced to be destroyed today for the crime of killing a duck in his master's yard. Danny Higgins' Shepherd-Retriever mix Beau as been called "gentle and friendly" by neighbors. Mr. Higgins is not rich or powerful. He is not media savvy. He is a simple man trying to save his best friend. Judge Dean Dedmon condemned this dog for following his natural instinct. Judge Dedmon's telephone number was revealed on Facebook as (731)286-7604. If you care about dogs or justice, please call the judge and politely implore him to reconsider his death sentence on Beau.
