   StormCnter  Y'll forgive me if this should have gone on a different wall. I didn't see one where it exactly fit, so it ends up here. This is a cartoon strip (too long to copy and paste ) about "How I Killed the Spider". I stole it from National Review Online. Enjoy!

   Allsogreat  Aren't you proud of our Republicans and Democrats (elected Criminals ) in Congress for spending $387,000 to give Swedish massages to rabbits - and then euthanizing them afterwards ....only in America....

   MeiDei  Just visited the Forum and read the article on "tunnel earlobe repairs" from the Guardian UK paper. More importantly was a side bar article about a paralyzed man being able to walk again utilizing stem cells from his nose to repair his severed spine. This is the link:

   Gerty  This is very exciting news, indeed. It was long thought that nerves, once dead, were irreparable. Using cells from the olfactory lobes in the brain is huge medical leap!

   Lonestar Jack  15 years ago a Dr. Goldstein (? ) from Las Vegas performed 5 surgeries involving "pasting" a patch of a patients omentum onto his medula oblongota. The published reports were phenomenal -- 4 complete successes and a partial.
He gave a presentation in room 300 of the UCLA Neurological Center where my wife was a patient. I tried to get the chief of the center and my wife's Doctor to go upstairs and attend the presentation, but they couldn't be bothered.
Sadly, my wife passed away shortly there after. Her autopsy cited "Atrophy of the medula" as a principal cause.
I am still amazed to this day of the total arrogance of those who "practice" medicine. That attitude is one of the reasons I abandoned my pre-med major in college many moons ago.

   Hollyhock  I think this is pretty amazing about the DOJ and the media keeping silent. I hope I copied it correctly. Can be found on American Thinker.

   Gerty  You copied just fine, Hollyhock.

Reading it gives one the feeling we are not in the USA anymore. Corruption is rampant and a whole administration is out to hurt us.

What a mess!!

   MeiDei  This has been given to the 9th Circuit Courts; I don't feel reassured since historically they are over ruled 75% of the time. Perhaps this time a fair outcome will happen.

   Lonestar Jack  Just heard Obama say that he isn't considering banning travelers from Ebola infected areas because it would hurt the effort to curtail the disease.

His minions can craft 11,000 pages of Obamacare rules and then he exempts 1,000's of people from its mandates -- here the king of exemptions equipped with pen and phone -- can't get a simple set of no-fly rules in place to stop this dreadful disease from reaching our shores until his PR lead CDC can come up with containment solutions.

He could make them all join a union or become staff members of Congress and they would be exempted.

I suspect he has other motives that he won't speak of so his "staff" proves to the world that we are led by a bunch of dummies.

I call them Obama's bonobos.

If he were to issue a no-fly order it would beg the question of other avenues of ingress to the US, and that would be extremely distasteful to the HIC (hypocrite in charge ). Heaven forbid he stop the TB, flu, smallpox etc that have come across the Rio Grande.
He has said there is almost no chance of getting Ebola locally yet the CDC is preparing 5,000 hospitals for an outbreak.
What is wrong with outfitting several aircraft with equipment and trained personnel that could transport suspected patients to hardened sites for containment under well trained staff and sanitized conditions?

   Bettijo  "... in the past year, nearly 130,000 immigrants have flooded across the Mexican border, taking advantage of taxpayer-funded benefits. Some experts believe that the hordes of people, primarily Central Americans, are bringing a different virus with them, enterovirus 68. How easily might unknown viruses, including Ebola, cross the southern US border as well?"

Learn more:

If we do stop flights from West Africa at our borders, what is to stop infected people from coming through our porous southern border? Those exposed to Ebola (and I can't blame them ) are going to do everything in their power to get to this country for our free health care and humane treatment (they heard about Duncan ). Is our government TRYING to kill us in the name of political correctness? At least two health care workers have been diagnosed with Ebola (I pray for them ) all because one infected immigrant was allowed to fly into out cities. It reminds me of trading five terrorists for one deserter. Except, of course, our dedicated health care workers (and anyone else who happened to be exposed ) are not terrorists--they are the good guys. Yet they are being traded for an infected immigrant who knew he had been exposed. And, in addition, to show their gratitude, I read that Duncan's family is suing claiming he was discriminated against. What about the health care workers? This makes me livid.

If anyone exposed by Duncan's (and our administration's ) irresponsible behavior, that death is on their hands and should be called what it is: homicide.

   Bettijo  I stole this off another blog:

"We have Ebola in the USA as a direct result of two liars, Thomas Duncan and Barack Obama. One should have never left been allowed to leave Africa and the other needs to be sent back."

   MMC  I need some of the common sense LDotters are able to provide in times of need.

This Ebola scares the common sense rifht out of me. I am not a health care provider, bit have enough science bbackground. To understand. The spread of disease.

What are your thoughts on the disease spread?what are you doing in case it gets close to you home? Before I become a total ehack doodle prepper! Help!

   MeiDei  See the link to the book Hot Zone posted by Flaming Sword below. Tells about the origin of Ebola & it's "Kissing Cousins" Marburg and AIDS. I'd be much more concerned if it was found to be airborne.

   MMC  I have The Hot Zone loaded and ready to read. However, the NBC or some channel photographer said he got Ebola cleaning his car. So, how long does this virus last on inanimate objects? How will it be disposed? And i also heard on Hannity there are only 11 self containe isolatiin beds in this country. This is why I am losing sleep.

   MeiDei  Please, don't make yourself sick worrying about something you can't control. The virus is active only if it remains 'wet' - unless it goes airborne (& no one knows if that will happen or when,i.e., out of our control ). Be at peace.

   Wrightwinger  I read that it can last a week or so on some surfaces if in fluids. A day or so on doorknobs and such. I suspect that droplets of spittle, spray from a cough or a sneeze may be able to transmit the disease, but nobody is saying much about that. A quick calculation shows that a droplet of water could contain millions of the viruses. An Ebola survivor can transmit the disease in semen for weeks after the symptoms have ceased. I wouldn't really start to worry until cases start showing up in your area. Prepare to some degree, but not worry. At present you are much more likely to die by a car wreck than Ebola.

   Hammock  I thought it was someone else's car, but I think it had transported an Ebola patient whoever's car it was. We don't know how he cleaned it. I read that cleaning of objects should take place by wiping rather than hosing so as not to spread droplets before they are killed by the bleach or whatever. When I see those pictures of suited health workers being sprayed down it doesn't appear to be a high pressure spray and they keep their masks on.

   Linder  What an opportunity the President missed....had he just gone on TV and been honest about the entire situation he could have made big points for himself and Democrat candidates. Many of us are partisan right up to the point of our safety and national security and then we look to our leader. He didn't lead.

   Fireball27  The city of Houston is going after 5 pastors for what they preach in their sermons. They are claiming the pastors are Homophobic, and need to be taught a lesson about being more progressive. Guess what group is not being called out. That's right none of the 10 mosques in the greater Houston area are being asked to change their stand on homosexuality. How about that!
