Hello, I'm With The Government And I Don't Have A Fucking Clue As To What I Should Be Doing

This Ebola virus that you hear about?
The government has no clue as to what to do about it.
No hospital in the country is prepared for a serious outbreak and no one event wants to get near the Bio waste generated already by just two infected individuals.

When I say they have no clue I am not kidding.
Head on over to The Raconteur Report for some sobering information and adjust your reality levels accordingly.

Speaking of reality, the reality is that if this stuff gets out among the general population you can expect mass panic and knee jerk attempts to deal with it from the authorities.

In all seriousness, this has the potential to be the New Smallpox.

As far as I am aware, no one yet has made that prediction, you heard it here first.

It's a virus people, not a germ.
Smallpox was also caused by a virus.
It wiped out millions, hundreds of millions in the 20th century alone.

We aren't in Kansas anymore Toto.

Oh, we're not THAT far gone. The people in charge know exactly what to do: quarantine all who have been or may have been exposed, and cut off all contact with sub-Saharan Africa.

But the situation may be worse, insofar as the people running the asylum have placed Political Correctness on a pedestal and are willing to sacrifice all our lives to it, even in matters of national survival, grave existential threats, lethal pandemics.

I don't think we're going to be able to vote our way out of this.

You get the government that you're willing to pay for.

The government we have isn't my choice.


Phil said...

Willing or not I still pay for it and at this point it is damn near theft of services.

How many trillion dollars a year is the government spending than they were fifty or a hundred years ago, again? Yet we can't even quarantine people with lethal contagious diseases. Nor maintain a minimal level of order and safety in our cities. Nor control our own borders. Nor deliver the mail in a timely and halfway reliable fashion.

We aren't getting all the government we're paying for. Then again, I don't want all the government I'm paying for--I'd settle for sealing off the borders, throwing out the illegals, and quarantining the Ebola and AIDS carriers.
