I was mostly joking, and attempting to highlight (through sarcasm) one of the problems of an overreliance on private enterprise to solve all problems.

The ebola problem does need to be handled in Africa. And here, as well, before it spreads to more than just the two health care workers infected by it.

Heh!

"We are the Centuries!
We are the chinchoppers and the gollywhoppers, and soon we shall discuss the amputation of your head!"

Frightening just how much of "Canticle" remains relevant to this day.

Only thing you'd have to add to that quote to "be today" is...
"Allahu akhbar!"

Story time

Back during the many years in NJ where I taught AP Physics, I always assigned a group project for the entire class. This particular year was "Create a Video depicting a Major Theme from Science Fiction that would be Relevant for Today".

The class decided to do the "Opening Credits" (basically what we, today, would call a "trailer") for a fictional "Coming Soon" of the thing they picked: "A Canticle for Leibowitz".

They did an exceptional job. And to get my attention, the music they chose was the Prelude from the first act of Die Walkure.

It actually ended up being "almost" professional quality - and left you with the "I can't wait to go to the theater and see this one!" feeling.

To this day I am waiting for some film producer, somewhere, to actually DO "Canticle" for the big screen. Hell, I'd even settle for a TV version like they did with "The Stand" some 15 or so years back.

But it won't happen.
Much too "Catholic" for the lib-tards.

Canticle remains relevant today because the same issues with religion that have existed for thousands of years are still here. We have yet to get them resolved. It'll probably still be relevant 2000 years from now.. If we haven't nuked ourselves to anhilation before that.

And similarly, Canticle gives us the comfort of knowing that if our civilization falls, the Church will be (as She has always been) here to gather up the remnants, record them, keep the records, and make them available when the right person at the right time makes the Appearance.

After every fall there is a rebirth.
Every advanced culture has its Thon Taddeo *and* its Hannegan.
That's part of the fun!

Well, the Church better start heating up that plan, because civilization could fall pretty quickly here.

This is unconfirmed, but "sources say" [cite: http://tinyurl.com/mv45zph ] that Barry O is planning to bring foreign Ebola patients *into* the US for treatment.

What could possibly go wrong?

The conspiracy theorist in me says that he wants a Reichstag fire. Massive plague in the US would be the excuse the radical leftists need to shut down that pesky Constitution and take their rightful place as a totalitarian government.
Obama isn't just an extreme leftist; he's also a sociopath.

Let me go on the record, with witnesses available if needed, that I have been predicting that Obama would pull a "Reichstag Fire" as long as 3 years ago.

I stand by that prediction.

We have two hopes that it, and he, will not prevail:

1. the Second Amendment
2. Oathkeepers. See http://www.oathkeepers.org

And if "they" try to shut down the internet, there is a literal army of licensed radio amateurs with the hardware and capability to have a mesh network going via WiFi for public access and the ampr.org backbone for transport.

The bitter sweetest irony is that your state maintains no-flight lists for people, on reasons such as "he once had a beard" or "he sat next to a muslim", but somehow everybody who comes from an ebola infested country gets a warm welcome. This whole focus on internet observation and data has made the state agencies blind for real threats. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2747965/I-ve-never-seen-Border-Patrol-Filmmaker-shows-Ebola-infected-ISIS-terrorist-sneak-Lake-Erie-Canada-Cleveland-RICIN-Rock-Roll-Hall-Fame.html

The first time I heard that people who caught an ebola infection in Africa were flown out of Africa, I instantly had scenes from "12 Monkeys" on my mind. Every single state in the world is capable of looking away from any starvation, genocide, environmental catastrophe all of the time, but then one "good guy" catches a highly infective disease and they are all like "well, fly them over, we can perfectly control it."

And we can clearly see that not every hospital nurse or doctor is capable of doing the right thing when some person with such an infection shows up.

"They" are already trying to do so. The takeover of ICANN/IANA by the UN is certainly intended to allow terrorist-controlled nations to shut down "blasphemous" sites. It's a very slippery slope from that point on.

Perhaps. Perhaps not.
Over the years I have lost count of the times folks have said "the internet is over." Beginning with the introduction of the web back when everyone was using telnet or ssh to get online through university sites or "borrowed" .com sites and from there using ftp, gopher or WAIS to grab files, and telnet/ssh to visit other locations.
When the web (and browsers) came along, all the "veterans" yelled "the internet is over." It wasn't. It changed. I can agree that it may not have completely been for the better, but there are parts of the change that are good; parts not so good.
As far as ICANN/IANA being run by the UN or by the lib-tards in DC, I'm trying to discern the difference and finding that difficult. Of course, it is still possible in the US to change our leadership through the ballot box, but fears arise about how the efficacy of *that* will stand the test of time.

The 2014 elections are exactly two weeks from today.

I am expecting a ground-swell of disgust with Obama to sweep many new Conservative (or at least not DemonCraps) into the House and the Senate.

As things appear today, here's my prediction:

a) in the House, a net gain of 8 to 15 seats for the Republicans.
b) in the Senate, a net gain of 7 to 12 seats for the Republicans.

The People are *that* fed up.
The People have finally come to realize that the asshole in the White House was a ****huge**** mistake.
The People have come to the understanding that there is a huge difference between Liberalism and what today's demonCraps like to call "liberalism." And never they twain shall meet.
To the point that:
If JFK were running today, he'd have to be a Republican.
If Nixon were running today, he'd have to be a DemonCrap.

My heavens; how things they be a'changin'!

What difference does it make if the Americans take control of both houses of Congress? They're still not going to have the two thirds majority they need to override a veto.

Shithead will continue legislating by executive order.

It will keep the finger of blame pointed right at the DemonCrap White House and help ensure that Hitlery's campaign will be doomed out the door.

He said "Caring for the poor does not make you a communist."

This is stupid. Caring for the poor does *not* make you a communist. Caring for the poor using money seized from other people against their will *does* make you a communist.

I don't care if he's the global leader of a group that adds proprietary extensions to Christianity. He said something stupid and I told him so.
