The Entry of Ebola into the US Has Hallmarks of a Planned Happening
By Paul Craig Roberts
October 23, 2014

*** begin quote ***

More information is available that suggests the the government had advance information that ebola was coming to the US and that the government expects a much larger outbreak of the disease in the US than it admits.

*** and ***

The U.S. government knew about the outbreak in advance, but didn’t warn the public

It’s now clear that the U.S. government has long known this outbreak was coming but did nothing to warn the public.

*** end quote ***

While it’s terrible to be so untrusting, but the Gooferment has earned our distrust.

The failure to close the commercial air lanes, properly alert the ERs, and the flat out lying about the status of protocols is at best incompetent and at worst criminal.

The politicians and bureaucrats showed us just how immoral, ineffective, and inefficient that Gooferment can be.

If evidence can be found, then maybe “We, The Sheeple” will awake?

GOVERNACIDE: Gooferment is the greatest cause of drug addiction

U.S. Government Guilty of Creating Heroin Addicts
October 16, 2014
Editorial By Wendy McElroy

*** begin quote ***

At least three factors call the official line into question.

First, in July 2013, the National Institute of Health published a study entitled, “Introduction to the Special Issue: Drugs, Wars, Military Personnel, and Veterans.” It stated: “Recent research suggests that the use and misuse of alcohol and prescription opioids (or POs such as OxyContin, Vicodin, and Percocet) are the signature substances associated with OEF/OIF/OND military personnel and veterans; for many, the consumption of these substances is causing additional challenges both for military personnel and veteran populations.” (OEF/OIF/OND = Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan/Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn, Iraq) It would be amazing if prescription drug abuse was prevalent while far more easily and anonymously obtained drugs were eschewed.

Second, in the earlier stages of the 13-year war, rampant drug use was acknowledged. A 2007 Salon article was entitled, “Afghanistan. It’s easy for soldiers to score heroin in Afghanistan. Simultaneously stressed and bored, U.S. soldiers are turning to the widely available drug for a quick escape.”

Third, newspapers have recently exploded with stories of an epidemic rise in America’s heroin addicts. On March 21, a BBC News headline trumpeted, “The horrific toll of America’s heroin ‘epidemic’.” In April, NBC News ran a 17-part series on the epidemic. The Washington Post (May 16) ran an article entitled “When heroin use hit the suburbs, everything changed”; which focused on heroin addiction becoming a white phenomenon. None of the stories mentioned the impact of war or that most soldiers coming home are white. Instead, like the ABC News coverage (July 31), they dwelt on the “doubling” of addicts as though it had no discernible cause.

Conclusion

What is the truth of it? Sometimes intentionally and sometimes not, often directly and often through circumstance, the American government is the greatest cause of drug addiction at home. And war is its conduit.

*** end quote ***

So why can’t “We, The Sheeple” connect the dots?

The Welfare / Warfare State makes us all poorer with its large number of Unintended Consequences!

Put Walmart and the other “drug” stores in charge of distribution and treat addiction as a medical problem.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Addiction is a MEDICAL problem

Monday, October 27, 2014

Subject: Advisory Message: South Brunswick Police Officers Save 21-year-old man

*** begin quote ***

South Brunswick Police Officers quick actions saved the life of a 21-year-old Township man early Sunday morning. At 4:11am police received a 911 call from a man who said his friend had overdosed on heroin and was unconscious in a backyard. Officer Scott Bucca and Officer Marcus Leysath responded to the residence off Deans Lane and were directed to the backyard by the friend. They found the victim unresponsive with minimal breathing. Officers used the medicine Naloxone to prevent the heroin from slowing and stopping the victim’s breathing. The officers reported that within minutes of administering the medicine the victim began to breathe normally. The Monmouth Junction First Aid Squad and paramedics transported the victim to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick for treatment.

*** end quote ***

While any tragedy averted is good, it has to trace back to the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”!

If all “illegal” drugs were for sale at WalMart and Walgreens, then addicts would be safe from adulteration and varying concentrations. 

Addiction is a MEDICAL problem, not a LEGAL problem. 

And, if “drugs” were no longer illegal, then they wouldn’t be “kool”. 

Argh!

One of the reasons that USP http://www.usp.org/ was formed was to ensure safe drug standards.

So once again, Gooferment creates a problem and then “finds” a solution that requires more Gooferment!

LIBERTARIAN: Shave a child’s head?

Sunday, October 26, 2014

https://www.quora.com/If-my-3-year-old-asks-me-to-shave-her-head-as-a-libertarian-why-shouldnt-I-comply-with-her-request

If my 3-year-old asks me to shave her head, as a libertarian, why shouldn’t I comply with her request?

*** begin quote ***

Libertarians don’t preface every conversation about individual freedom with a disclaimer that we’re only talking about rules for adults, but it is usually implied.

*** end quote ***

Plus, Libertarians are not a uniform homgenous group. It’s like a clowder of cats.

Parents have a self-assumed obligation to this person.

As such, they are compelled to act in the child’s best interest.

I would ask, “why shouldn’t you comply”?

It won’t kill her. And it may well be a “learning experience for all involved?

INTERESTING: Predisposed to sleep in two stages

Why Waking Up at Night Might be Good For You
Jordyn Cormier
October 18, 20145:29 pm

*** begin quote ***

Humans may be more predisposed to sleep in two stages: a first sleep and a second sleep. Beginning a couple of hours after dusk, the first sleep would traditionally last about 4 hours. Then, there would be an interlude of waking activity — be it tending the fire, praying, reading, getting frisky, or deep contemplation — before resuming sleep number 2 into the morning. According to historian Roger Ekirch, there are multiple references in literature to affirm this idea that first and second sleep were common, undisputed practices up until the early 1700s when street lighting came about and it became fashionable to stay up late.

So that’s why I have get up several times a night? 

I have sleeplets!

Laugh!

Never heard this meme before.

QUOTE: ON positive and negative

Thursday, October 23, 2014

We must look for the opportunity in every difficulty, instead of being paralyzed at the thought of the difficulty in every opportunity.
~Walter E. Cole

The pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; the optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
~L.P. Jacks

# – # – # – # – #   

Unfortunately, this makes us pessimists look dumb.

With apologies to Doctor Norman Vincent Peale (May 31, 1898 – December 24, 1993) was a minister and author of “The Power of Positive Thinking”, who I heard speak in person more than once; thanks to a “Comparative Christian Religions” Theology course required of all Engineers. 

I often cite “Reinke’s Rule” (egotistically named after a fat old white guy injineer named me) which states: “Expect the worst and every surprise will be to the good side.”

This means by not expecting sunshine and lollypops, by not presuming an easy journey, one can be prepared to overcome ALL obstacles. That careful consideration before embarking allows one to fully commit to the goal and be positive you will attain it.

My 3 confirming examples comes from post-graduate education opportunities: 

* I had the opportunity to get my MBA. With a bunch of co-workers. Three years at night. Fall, Spring, and Summer. No partial credit for not finishing. Completed. Piece of cake. Actually enjoyed it. 

* I then had the opportunity to go to law school with the same cadre I took my MBA with. It was 6 years of the same Fall, Spring, and Summer. With real work and a bar exam. No partial credit. I declined. Of the 20 that started; only 4 finished. And, one never passed the bar. 3/20 = 15%!

* I had the opportunity to get my MS CompSci. Had to go it alone; no comrades. That was hard! Three years at night. Fall, Spring, and Summer. No partial credit for not finishing. Completed.

Upon reflection, I should have gone to Law School. I regret it today.

But I wonder how I would feel if I was one of the 17 versus one of the 3?

And, when makes such a decision, one doesn’t know what costs were hidden along the way. Six summer vacations come to mind. 

So, I’ll stick with “Reinke’s Rule”. You OTOH have follow your own paradigms and memes. YMMV!
