Senate Hearing Focuses On Ebola Crisis… Thousands Of Miles Away

Today, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee holds a hearing on “to examine the Ebola epidemic”. It seems like a good opportunity to reflect back on the Ebola crisis… the one that never ever posed a serious threat to the United States.

You see, it’s the Subcommittee on African Affairs that is holding the hearing. That’s […]

Protect America’s Children! Comparing The Threat Of Ebola To The Threat Of Laundry

Laundry soap is a much more serious threat to Americans that Ebola is. So, why haven’t politicians held congressional hearings about laundry soap, demand that the Obama Administration confront the danger of laundry soap, and called for “proactive” measures to ban the use of laundry soap, “because one American in the hospital is one American too much”?

Conservatives Across America Heap Accolades on Barack Obama for Ebola Policy

American conservatives are out on the streets, showing their love for President Barack Obama’s Ebola policy.

That’s what I must conclude from the sudden appearance of bumper stickers like this across the nation. On Barack Obama’s watch, after all, there were a handful of cases in which someone with Ebola flew to the United States. […]

Democrat Emily Cain Hops on the Ebola Panic Bandwagon

While it’s fair to say that more Republicans than Democrats have been caught up in the panic over Ebola in the United States, the Ebola freakout is not an entirely partisan phenomenon. In a recent debate for the Maine 2nd District Congressional race, Democratic candidate Emily Cain was asked the question, “What should government be […]

Dan Benishek Abandons Medical Ethics To Whip Up Ebola Panic For Personal Gain

Dan Benishek may be a medical doctor, but he’s trained as a surgeon, not as an infectious disease specialist. When he rants and raves about Ebola threatening northern Michigan, he’s betting that voters in his district are too ignorant to know the difference. […]

Minus the space unitards, this is just about where we seem to be right now.

16 Students in Texas Catch Ebola? Panic and a Hoax at the Grocery

“I swear I am never going to get a flu shot again,” said the young bagger at the grocery store tonight. “My arm is going to fall off, it hurts so much.”
