Ebola was the big topic this week. Let’s pray this epidemic doesn’t get any bigger.
- The Ebola Patient Was Sent Home Because of Bad Software (www.theatlantic.com) – We are blaming software? When we knew exactly where the people who have this disease are located, why didn’t we stop those people from coming here? It is called a quarantine, and it is an old disease control technique that predates computers, and it works! Of course, that would require us to enforce our borders, and that’s politically incorrect.
- Surprise: After Illegal Immigration Wave, Tuberculosis Plagues El Paso Hospital (townhall.com) – Ebola has garnered lots of attention, but because of a lack of border enforcement, we are losing the battle against diseases we had beaten. Check out these slightly older stories too: FEDS BEND CDC RULES FOR SICK ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS and Illegal Alien Minors Spreading TB, Dengue, Swine Flu.
- Duct Tape (insanitybytes2.wordpress.com) – Here we have a thoughtful definition of freedom that involves “duct tape,” that is, self-restraint. After you read the next blog post in this list, the quote below will make more sense.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. — Ronald Reagan
- Captain Obvious: Free Contraceptive choices reduce pregnancy (www.moonhowlings.net) – This post is exactly the sort we should consider after reading the post above. The researchers at Washington University in Saint Louis provided “free” contraception to teens. This is the Liberal Democrats’ solution to stupid and immoral behavior, a “free” government handout that sweeps the all the problems out of sight and out of mind.
- God does not hide himself (thei535project.wordpress.com) – How do lose someone who is everywhere? We don’t look for Him. We cover our eyes, shut our ears, harden our heart,….
- Some beautiful music for Sunday (bluebirdofbitterness.com) – Something wrong with beautiful music on Monday?
- The Democrats and America’s Modern Day Plantations (votingamerican.wordpress.com) – Here the author puts down Democrats and the news media for promoting division, abortion and Socialism. The complaint is valid, but the villain is in each of our mirrors. Each of us is at least in some small way to blame. We have all forgotten the significance of our nation’s founding document, the Declaration of Independence.
- WHY OUR VOTES DON’T SEEM TO MATTER ANYMORE (familyallianceonline.org) – Here is a post that relates today’s decision on same-sex “marriage” with a too often forgotten document, the Declaration of Independence.
