Ebola Media Silence

Ebola Media Silence

Freedom of the press is one of the most essential freedoms we have as Americans. A free press is a safeguard for the people so can keep our government in check, and hold them accountable. Throughout history, even today, one of the first things an oppressive government will do is take over the media infrastructure. Information is that powerful.

This week it slipped that the Associated Press had ‘agreed’ to stop reporting on suspected cases of Ebola. At the same time, the CDC has repeatedly shipped a quarter of a million hazardous material suits to the Dallas, Texas area, the apparent ‘ground zero’ for Ebola in America. Coincidence? I hope so, but I sincerely doubt it.

The midterm elections were a nice distraction from the ‘all Ebola, all the time’ hysteria-inducing reports we were receiving a couple of weeks back. We need a middle ground though. Responsible reporting that does not cave to any administrations ‘suggestions,’ so that we the people can make informed decisions on how to live our lives. If a possible Ebola outbreak is happening in my area, I would like to know.

Last week we as voters basically the federal government upside down and gave President Obama a major ‘no confidence’ vote. We still have to be diligent in making sure our voices are heard, and that we want our borders closed until this outbreak is under control. This is not fear mongering, it is exercising the only reasonable approach. Every person stepping off of those planes could be a ticking time bomb. For our leaders to not eliminate that risk when a solution is so easily within our grasp is unconscionable. The time to hold the federal representatives’ feet to the fire is now while the worst case scenarios can be prevented, not after the major disaster has already happened.

Do Death Panels Really Exist?

Do Death Panels Really Exist?

October 28th, 2014 I was discharged from yet another hospital, with my symptoms worsening. They just gave up looking for the problem after a couple tests. Obamacare is destroying medicine. Hospitals where one used to go real treatment are now just simple stabilization centers. They are ready, willing, and able to send you down the conveyor belt of misery to the next specialist, which still won’t find anything despite alarmingly obvious symptoms.

I fully expect to be recommended by the oft-rumored ‘death panels’ to go into a pain management service (hospice), to live my last few months in Afghani grown, poppy-seed derived blissful ignorance. This option is so much cheaper than actually fixing the problem and extending my admittedly expensive life. This is a very tough pill to swallow especially now that I’m starting to experience the first glimpses of happiness I’ve felt … ever.
