Sorry, No Do-overs Senator U-dumb

ABC 7 News in Denver did a fun little segment called “10 questions for Mark Udall.” The segment wasn’t so enjoyable for the incumbent democrat Senator from Colorado (who defends his seat in about two weeks.)

Thinking He Was Brain Dead, Family Was Set to Give Away His Organs

Then He Held Up Two Fingers

Lifenews

LifeNews has repeatedly profiled cases where doctors may too quickly began cutting up patients who are not really dead to begin harvesting their organs for donations.

These kinds of cases have happened before, as supposedly “brain dead” patients have come back to life just before having their vital organs taken from them after prematurely being declared dead. Although there is nothing morally wrong with organ donations — in fact, it’s arguably a very pro-life action to take — these kinds of stories ought to remind organ donors (and any patient and their family) that doctors are too quickly declaring patients dead or too far gone to treat.

Charity Starts At Home for Some People

Matt Stolhandske got some space in The Washington Post with a column titled “I’m a gay rights activist. I want to give $150,00 to someone who opposes gay marriage.”

Actually Mr. Stolhandske wants to crowd source the money, he doesn’t want to open his own wallet. He’s trying to get other people give him money and trust that he’ll pass it along to the owners of Sweet Cakes, Melissa and Aaron Klein, who face a $150,000 lawsuit for not baking a gay wedding cakes.

Besides the annoying tone of the piece (it’s mostly about Stolhandske) a commenter named Delphic1 did a little research on the “oh, so generous” Mr. Stolhandske that puts the piece in whole different light.

They have TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS and CLOSED BORDERS.

If Obola was in charge in Africa, WHO would be declaring a pandemic.

BBC

Nigeria has been declared officially free of Ebola after six weeks with no new cases, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.

WHO representative Rui Gama Vaz, speaking in the capital Abuja, said it was a “spectacular success story”.

Nigeria won praise for its swift response after a Liberian diplomat brought the disease there in July.

The outbreak has killed more than 4,500 people in West Africa, mostly in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.

An estimated 70% of those infected have died in those countries.

The WHO officially declared Senegal Ebola-free on Friday.

Meanwhile, European Union foreign ministers are meeting in Luxembourg to discuss how to strengthen their response to the threat posed by Ebola.

Fake IRS agents scare taxpayers

Detroit Free Press

Scammers pretending to be from the IRS are taking advantage of real taxpayer fear of the Internal Revenue Service. Some experts say the federal government needs to work harder to stop the con artists.

Jennifer Blanzy, 53, returned home from exercising one Saturday morning in September only to find out that someone was threatening to put her in jail because she wasn’t responding to letters from the IRS.

The message left on the answering machine at her Grosse Pointe Park home said: “Do not ignore this phone call.” Full Story

Big Government

Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun.

Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.” Full Story

Islamic Burial Rituals Blamed For Spread Of Ebola

Islam isn’t just at the heart of the terror threat posed by the Islamic State. The religion is also contributing to the other major crisis plaguing the globe: the spread of Ebola.

Washington and its media stenographers won’t tell you this, lest they look intolerant, but Islamic burial rituals are a key reason why health officials can’t contain the spread of the deadly disease in West Africa. Full Story

Ahahahahahahaha – I See Right Through This Douchebag

Home - by - October 19, 2014 - 23:49 America/New_York - 54 Comments

Look at this guy. Does the term DOUCHEBAG not come to mind when you see him? I haven’t told you a thing about him, but I bet 75% of you asked yourselves, “who’s this douchebag?” He just has that sort of douchebag persona. It punctures through pixels on a screen. Some people can’t help it. It’s like punchable face. He he has douchebag face.

douchebag

This is Michael Mark Cohen. Michael Mark… Cohen. He even has a douchebag name. The names Michael, Mark, or Cohen aren’t douchey. It’s just douchey to go around calling yourself Michael Mark Cohen, like a trumpet jingle precedes your entrance.

When you look like a douchebag, you compound the douchebaggery and send it into the stratosphere of douchebaggedness by availing the three name option that 99.9999999% of non-douchebags forgo. Do I really want to do extra work when trying to get this douchebag’s attention? Am I expected to call him Michael Mark? If not, why am I even being told about the Mark part? I know why. Because he’s a douchebag.

So why am I writing about this douchebag? Because he is advocating that the term “douchebag” be used, exclusively, as an epithet to describe all white people. In his words it’s “The White Racial Slur We’ve All Been Waiting For.”

Let me tell you what is going on, if you haven’t already figured it out. HE’S a douchebag. He’s been called a douchebag his entire life. Now he wants all white people to be called douchebags in order to “spread the douchebag slur around.” That way, when he’s called a douchebag, and it will happen again soon, I assure you, he can say, “well, aren’t we all?”

No, we’re not, Michael Mark, you are.

CDC doled out $25 million in bonuses while blaming cuts for Ebola outbreak

Home - by - October 19, 2014 - 21:00 America/New_York - 1 Comment

Wa Times

Top public health officials have collected $25 million in bonuses since 2007, carving out extra pay for themselves in tight federal budgetary times while blaming a lack of money for the Obama administration’s lackluster response to the Ebola outbreak.

U.S. taxpayers gave $6 billion in salaries and $25 million in bonuses to an elite corps of health care specialists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention since 2007, according to data compiled by American Transparency’s OpenTheBooks.com, an online portal aggregating 1.3 billion lines of federal, state and local spending. The agency’s head count increased by 23 percent during that time, adding manpower and contributing to higher payrolls despite relatively flat funding. Full Story
