White House officials are preemptively spinning a midterm defeat, and they’re using their own fantasies to do it. They’re starting to blame candidates for not supporting President Obama enough. As a top White House official told The Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty, “He doesn’t think they have any reason to run away from him. He thinks there is a strong message there.”
Ace, from whom we stole this article, asks the question:
How does Obama believe such nonsense?
Which, out of respect for Ace, we’ll call a rhetorical question.
But we’ll supply the answer all the same:
For the same reason that a certain Austrian corporal thought he could still win the war in 1945.
The two are two pieces cut from the same cloth.
If only it hadn’t been “politically incorrect” to point that out, true as it obviously is and always has been, then our country might not have had to go through all of this.
All we can say, “fundamentally unserious” that we are, is:
WE FUCKING TOLD YOU SO, YOU MILQUETOAST MOTHERFUCKING NITHLINGS.
Queen Ebola of Main, the nurse who just couldn’t give less of a fuck about the rest of humanity, has now decided that she absolutely doesn’t give a fuck about her quarantine either.
Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined at a New Jersey hospital despite exhibiting no Ebola symptoms after arriving from West Africa, won’t follow the quarantine imposed by Maine officials, her attorney said tonight.
So now a 101 degree fever is no longer a symptom? OK. Damn, it’s getting hard to keep up with this.
No, we don’t really care if the initial measurement was a “human error” because she was “flushed” and they used a forehead scanner (we know they’re not perfect, but if they’re that fallible, we strongly suggest that the FDA revoke their approval for use on humans right this minute), what remains a fact is that she showed symptoms, or symptom, when she entered the country from Ebola Central in West Bumfrica. What also remains a fact is that it matters bugger all whether she’s symptomatic or not, it’s 21 days until we can say whether she has it or not. That’s why we call it “quarantine.” It’s because she might have it. If she had it, we’d use a different term, “isolation.”
It would be really helpful if the press would refrain from expounding on subjects of which they have less than no knowledge, but then they’d pretty much not be able to expound at all. Which, come to think of it…
“Going forward she does not intend to abide by the quarantine imposed by Maine officials because she is not a risk to others,” her attorney Steven Hyman said. “She is asymptomatic and under all the protocols cannot be deemed a medical risk of being contagious to anyone.”
As far as we know.
Which is obviously good enough for the self-entitled Queen of Maine. We can only hope that her baffled subjects feel the same way.
We repeat, once more for the benefit of idiots and the bitch’s lawyer (but we repeat ourself): If she were a confirmed risk, then she wouldn’t be in “quarantine”, she’d be in “isolation.” Look it up, dumbfuck. There’s this thing called Google nowadays.
And allow us to digress a bit on this whole sad subject of “you’re not contagious until you show symptoms.” We don’t know that, it’s just what we’ve anecdotally learned from the case histories that we know of so far. Nobody, not even High Priest and Oracle Dr Frieden of the CDC, knows at what point exactly an infected individual becomes contagious. It’s not unique for Ebola either. It’s an, we hope, educated guess at this point, based on what we do know, which is limited.
There is no Magic Threshold for contagiousness, be it for Ebola or any number of other infectious diseases, we just learned from people who caught it and how the person they caught it from was feeling at the time they were in contact. And that’s assuming that we even know who they actually caught it from.
That’s why we have quarantines. Because we. don’t. KNOW. Knowledge of something and an educated guess, no matter how well educated it is, are not the same. Medicine is not an exact science. They teach that in med school. We know that for a fact, having attended one. So we quarantine even those that we feel fairly certain aren’t a risk because, hey, WHAT IF WE WERE WRONG?
It seems a small price to pay compared to the cost of being wrong, particularly in the case of Ebola.
But hey, let’s play: Let’s assume, and that’s one hell of an ASS-umption, that we know that Ebola isn’t contagious until the infected individual gets a fever.
How much of a fever? 98.8? 99.0? 99.5? 100? 103? Please, we’re listening. It’s kinda important. And is it the same for everybody? Is a person who becomes contagious always going to become contagious at the exact same temperature? Are there no individual differences? No people whose body chemistry can keep a temperature down longer than others?
Fascinating. Somebody should write a paper on that, as it flies in the face of all evidence.
Did any of you reading this ever have a fever? Do you know exactly when it started? Did you just all of a sudden see a warning pop up on your Terminator HUD saying “warning, fever”? Are you suggesting that people at risk should take their temperature every 6 hours? Every 3 hours? Every minute? Do you know exactly at what rate temperature increases in Ebola patients? Again, is it the same across all individuals, set in stone?
What about the inaccuracy and imprecision of the instruments used to measure temperature?
Beginning to see the picture here?
Anybody NOT seeing it is an idiot.
And that’s why we have quarantines. To be on the safe side. To err on the side of caution.
Because the price of being wrong about ANY of the above is too damn high.
But none of this matters one tiny little fuck to Kaci Hickox and the rest of the useless ME-MYSELF-AND-I Generation™ Abortion should not merely have been legal for them, it should have been mandatory, because they’re of absolutely no benefit to anybody, and they prove it with their every utterance, their every action.
We don’t want people who have offered assistance to sick people “punished” for their good deeds, quite to the contrary. It takes a special effort to go mingle with people afflicted with a disease that will kill you in horrible ways. As a matter of fact, His Imperial Majesty would be entirely supportive of using tax dollars to build a luxury quarantine resort for those who need to be quarantined for three weeks. Give them the finest food, drink and entertainment the Empire has to offer, all free of charge, with full pay. Pipe in every movie known to mankind for free on demand, make it Disney World for Adults on steroids, let them know we appreciate their efforts and the time they have to take away from their daily lives.
The price of one Gay Cowboy Poetry Festival ought to cover it. One Solyndra ought to be able to cover the price a thousand times over. We don’t care.
It’s still cheaper than being wrong about the risks of transmission.
And perhaps it would shut up selfish cunts like Ms Hickox while she enjoys living like the Special Princess that she obviously thinks that she is.
Heck, the silence of those narcissistic shits would be worth the price alone.
Every time we think the Smarterest Prozi In the World, the Hildebeest, can’t possibly say anything more stupid than the last time she lowered the bar, she rolls out the backhoe and does it yet again. It’s marvelous to behold!
Clinton defended raising the minimum wage, saying, “Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs–they always say that.”
Because that’s what they always do. Not because we “say” it, but because math.
Wages paid by an employer is the number of employees times their wages. If their wages go up (and the employer’s revenue doesn’t, but by all means do tell us about Congress’ new “Minimum Revenue for Employers Act” if we somehow missed the memo), then the grand total the employer has to shell out to meet payroll does as well, meaning he can either cut jobs, raise prices (which will then eat up everybody’s “pay raise”) or go bankrupt.
#2 and #3 aren’t really options, for those of you who went to Prozi school and thus fail to grasp basic economics. Or anything else, for that matter. OK, #2 might be, but it would sort of defeat the whole purpose of raising wages which, we thought, was to allow people to buy more stuff.
People like buying stuff. But there’s not much fun in having $20 more to buy stuff with if stuff just got $20 more expensive.
Math is science. Aren’t we always told that Prozis “love science?”
Much the same way the Imperial First Canine loves pickup trucks, apparently. She loves chasing them, but she’d be utterly fucked as to what to do with one if she caught it.
But that’s not the dumbest thing the Hildebeest said. This is:
“Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,”
Those same corporations and businesses that pay the wages for the, er, jobs.
This is the Smartest Womyn in the World™?
According to Prozis, she is. Maybe it’s just us, but if we were a woman, we’d consider it a mortal insult that those slack-jawed neofascists consider us dumber that her.
“Me smart! Me BRILLIANT! “
We will grant, however, that’s she’s demonstrably smarter than the window-licking hordes who elected the only life form provably dumber than her president. Twice. But they weren’t all women.
Don’t overthink things.
Obama is a textbook narcissist, and must surely pore over every mention of his name in print — and yet still refuses to let the rats in his party jump off of his ship. They swim away in earnest, heads barely above water, but Titanic Captain B. H. Obama plucks them back up and lashes them to his down-going mast.
What is going on here?
The answer is counterintuitive, but simple: Obama wants the Democrats to lose.
But the “why” offered in the linked article, while certainly interesting (and frightening in its own right), rests on the assumption that president Obola is anything other than a psychopath, a malignant narcissist with the mentality of a 5-year-old.
He’s lost. It’s all crashing around him, so he has decided to take everything and everybody down with him because if he can’t win, then nobody gets to walk away from the cratered out Reichstag either.
History is full of sick, mentally defective, deranged psychos like him, and he’s no different.
It really is that simple.
So a nurse from Doctors Without Common Sense comes back from the pestilent Ebola center of the planet, gets put in quarantine and, you knew it, goes on an industrial grade whine rant about how horribly inhumane it is… I am a nurse who has just returned to the U.S. after working with Doctors Without

Preznit Obola can barricade WWII vets from their monuments and ordinary American citizens from their own national parks, but he can’t barricade potential guaranteed Ebola carriers from entering our country? F.E.T.E. PS: All Hail Emperor Misha! (May Beers Be Upon Him)
Be advised: This is not a confirmed case yet, but it sure sounds like it might be the real deal: Spencer, who was one of the medics working in Guinea with Doctors Without Borders, had been back for 10 days and quarantined himself after developing nausea and a high fever, sources said. Except he didn’t,

So this whole thing in Canada? We can’t really add much to what LC Brendan already said, except this: Just what the fuck did you drooling fucktards think would happen when political correctness and multi-culti babble became more important than common sense? When tried and true methods such as quarantine became less important than the
