Halloween 2014: Fiction-Free Fright







Under Obamacare, some folks probably don't even know where to go for a fresh change of bandages, though, in the case pictured here it's likely too late to worry about an infection..  The good news?  Fortunately, if you like your mummy you can keep your mummy.


















There's a creepy little scene in the original movie,  Fright Night  when the vampire portrayed by Chris Sarandon, poised rather casually, yet threateningly on a staircase, announces to his intended victims who have just entered a house consumed by evil, "Welcome to fright night -- for real."  He, of course, alludes to a local TV show of the same name which features old horror movies starring and hosted by a washed-up movie actor who has reluctantly come to destroy a real vampire, as life suddenly imitates art, albeit satirically.

As the year begins to draw to a close, we're all starring in a  Fright Night, version 2014, slapped with the realization that Ebola no longer dwells in places most of us couldn't care less about. It's October, and instead of just propping up the pumpkins and shaking down total strangers for treats or tricks of previously unimaginable depths, we're aware that viral monsters have invaded our shores -- and if Ebola weren't enough, a proven child-killing enterovirus has come to the USA to marry shock value.  Fright night for real.

Last Halloween I wrote a story for the blog, but the way this year's going I don't know that I could throw in any literary creep-outs to rival reality, and haven't tried.  The dedicated folks who proudly wear the Middle Eastern ISIS label are single-handedly doing head counts by chopping first and counting later, while our Southern borders remain open to both the winds and whim of what appears the criminally negligent Obama bunch.  What has crawled into our country so far is a plague unto itself, with the worst perhaps yet to come.

Not to forget, we in the U.S. still have a Marine trapped in a Mexican prison for several months now, and our patience has run out as Mexico plays this one out to the max.  Under real national leadership, I suspect our Marine would be home now, even if accomplishing this goal meant storming the prison.  The Mexican people are good people overall, but the Mexican government and all of its less than virtuous tentacles are not our friends. 

Meanwhile, teachers across the country have been enslaved by this Administration to welcome, accept and teach border-jumpers from Central America, who speak not a word of English and, in many cases, were already profoundly illiterate as they were "encouraged" to flee their own countries.  And they're bringing diseases, some of them forgotten artifacts from years gone by, killer illnesses we thought extinct, or nearly so, in our country.  Where are the teachers' unions - out pimping for  Common Core?   Without quick action, America's future (we're observing it as a society already) is a nation composed of illiterate, common senseless dumb-asses, the only benefit being a sharp increase in sports enthusiasts who purchase ridiculously overpriced and generously taxed team memorabilia, while wolfing down beer, pizza and wings by the ton, energized and soothed by the melodic sounds of their own  team spirit  farts,  but have no clue about or interest in knowing the names of congressional representatives.

An additional thought about Ebola:  Hospitals across this country wouldn't have to worry about the proper care & feeding of Ebola victims, and medical staff wouldn't find themselves in near-panic or ready-to-go mode if this damnable Administration had done the wise thing that other countries have accomplished merely by cutting off flights from affected countries.  Don't tell us it can't be done or shouldn't be done -- the Obama bunch has whipped the U.S. medical community into an unnecessary frenzy through its own incompetency, and agenda-driven actions which have almost without question resulted in the deaths of children because an aggressive Central American enterovirus was allowed to cross our borders via human "infection mules," the Trojan horse for our age.  Prison cells beckon and crave White House communists for fair and just occupancy.

Yes, there's plenty to be scared about.  Fright Night  for real, sans vampires.  Also. . .

On the UFO front, having had an interest in the subject and being an Air Force veteran myself, I remain profoundly disturbed about two former USAF airmen, reportedly involved with close-up encounters in the Bentwaters (Rendlesham Forest) UFO incident of December, 1980 in England.  Neither of these gentleman has been able to access his complete Air Force medical records via the Veterans Administration, even with the help of U.S. senators, including  Sen. John McCain and the civilian legal process itself.  Yes, there are times when national security dictates the withholding of documents, but the Bentwaters air base incidents appear to be a whole different and extremely bizarre critter than what one anticipates when national security restrictions pop up.  The fact that Great Britain recently "discovered" that there are more UFO files to be released to the public, after assuring one and all that the closet was empty, may result in more information on the Bentwaters case, but past experience demonstrates that the "good stuff" seldom materializes to dance seductively under the public spotlight when government censors have their way.

So this is my Halloween message this year, no weird stories, no black cats, no tricks and definitely no treats.  The night falls on a Friday this year, thus guaranteed to qualify some neighborhoods for a three-day weekend of hell-raising by those tending to be mischievous beyond measure.  A safe Halloween to everybody, good luck to all the black cats and other animals who suffer the night's idiots, and beware of Executive Marxist Orders that go bump in the night.  Or in the day.

Ebola: The Ultimate in Social Media



While scheming and overwhelmingly incompetent factions among the Obama bunch stubbornly and illegally ride that hazardous train called amnesty into town, consumed by a focus exclusive of America's truly urgent problems, there's a little something about Ebola worthy of mention:  Health care workers.

We can cry, scream and pound our fists over the disease and its victims and, yes, we can panic in the streets, but if Ebola's menace spreads throughout the U.S., the first mass exodus will be composed primarily of doctors, nurses and pretty much members of every medical career.  Believe it -- self-preservation tends to beat dedication when things get dicey, and medical personnel realize better than occupants of a drugged up, media-fed society how dire are the consequences.

I think CDC head Dr. Thomas Frieden knows it, too, but his job is to calm you so you don't storm the currently useless/evil/far left/downright communist White House and the invisible/pathetic/brain-frozen Congress with pitchforks and cans of  Raid.

At least three nations in Africa should have been quarantined and air travel forbidden for any reason until Ebola's current potential is reduced and, we hope, cured via some pharmaceutical magic.  Flights to the U.S. would be curtailed, and damn the economic loss to the airlines.  Alas, we still host the great Obama in the people's White House.  Obama, the community organizer and non-communicator who routinely goes silent regarding issues America's rock-solid legitimate citizens really care about.

By the way, don't we have a Surgeon General milling about somewhere?  Nothing to say? Cat got his or her glossopharyngeal area?

And to think Congress gave the CDC a giant cash infusion, most of which apparently went to prop up Obama's policies instead of contributing to research.  Instead, the Democrats blame non-existent budgetary cuts for the Ebola crisis at the CDC.  Typical.

West Africans must remain in their nations, and President Obama's total lack of involvement in making this happen is yet another reason why this president and his loyal screw-ups deserve a trial and long, long prison sentences.  These folks are criminals, if little more.  What else do we call those complicit in ignoring, murdering or treating as lab rats their own country's population?

Confidence?  No confidence.  And this president dares to send our military folks to Africa to nation-build a society out of Ebola, risking their lives to battle an enemy none of them signed up to confront in their wildest dreams?  Perhaps his wife can go along and suit-up to advise Ebola victims about a proper diet of vegetables to go along with meals of fruit bats and bush meat.

The president initially dismissed the chances that so much as one Ebola patient would emerge in the U.S.

The World Health Organization expects, potentially, at least 10,000 new cases a week around the globe.  For starters, that is.  Latest predictions indicate that Ebola may indeed have airborne capabilities, necessitating respirators for all involved medical personnel.  Good luck with that.

How about our cash society?  Paper money and coins will provide excellent transportation for the Ebola virus as these objects make their rounds throughout the country.  All it takes is a little cough or perspiration left behind.

And there's still the Southern border, potential invasion site for Ebola victims or those merely fearful of infection. 

Never let a good crisis go to waste, remember that one.  A Democrat classic.

But yes, just as in Africa, American health care workers will flee hospitals for their lives if Ebola erupts out of control in the USA.  Why wouldn't -- why shouldn't they?  They're people, too.  Does anybody know for sure that those special body outfits intended to protect health workers aren't hazardously  porous in microscopic terms?  What about pinhole-sized rips? 

Endemic.  A plague.  Darkness. Economic catastrophe and social chaos.  Because our leaders choose the wrong options in an absurd quest to engineer definitions of hope and change.  They'll warn about some vague war on women instead of declaring a war on Ebola, starting at our shores.  Or must we play that always exciting political game,  What’s the Agenda?  The clue to playing the game begins with the words, amnesty and open borders at any cost.  Even your kids' lives, as we've already experienced with Enterovirus D68, most likely a little gift from Central American border crashers.

I think I know now why TV's  The Walking Dead  is so popular.  Maybe, more than ever, art imitates life death.

Fear and hazing in New Jersey:   Bullying and hazing are nothing new in school locker rooms, though apparently things are a tad emotional right now in some educational institution called Sayreville or Sayerville high school, whatever.  The sexual aspects of the situation shouldn't surprise anybody familiar with the Internet, because the Net is one big how-to reference, a fact which government officials have yet to fully appreciate.  The current "sexual revolution" via the Web precipitates some strange bedfellows for young onlookers, and one's observation that sex as hazing or torture in the locker room is just some peculiar phenomenon -- an "isolated incident" -- misses the mark.  Like it or not, this is the modern disturbing successor to "horseplay," towel-snapping and playing "grab-ass." 

The real surprise for me was watching some TV news reporter interviewing an actual psychologist whose specialty (per the screen title) was bullying and hazing!  Is there no end to these one-trick-pony experts!?  For every psychologist a specialty and a specialty to one and all.

Know what I want?  I want to see a psychologist versed in presidential idiocy and the horrors of Marxism visiting the White House to have a little session or two with the current chief occupant.  Of course, he or she would need to force their way through a room already filled with behavioral psychologists employed to make Americans see life through Mr. Obama's eyes.

Frauds, nothing but frauds enriching their own lives, using sleight-of-hand magic while they put our lives in jeopardy with incompetence or personal agendas, the only services they have to offer.

Diseased Borders, Diseased Nation



As Senator Charles Schumer of New York stepped before the lapdog news media this week and expressed concern about Ebola and the need to track and screen potential carriers, I wondered to myself, well, that's real smooth of you, Senator Chuck -- but how come not one word from the distinguished representative from NY about the Southern border invasion and all the diseases, drugs, "unaccompanied children," Korans and prayer rugs crossing illegally on a routine basis, per the negligence of the president, Eric Holder and other Democrats of a socialist mind?  We suffer a national government of lies, misrepresentations and CYA (that's cover your ass for the uninformed).  If we've learned anything from the likes of the departing Secret Service chief and the former IRS queen, it's that our national government leadership appears composed uncomfortably now of egotists, narcissists and ignoramuses who serve and protect their agendas stubbornly, while the rest of us dwell out of sight and out of mind at the bottom of a long self-serving list stamped OFFICIAL BUSINESS.

Meanwhile, the Ebola patient from Liberia who knowingly jeopardized others by lying about his status and flying to the U.S. remains in critical condition in Dallas as I type this, and I must say that if the bastard gives up the ghost two minutes from now, good riddance.  He may as well have threatened people he encountered along the way with an automatic weapon or knife.  I'm not being racist, I'm being practical.

All of this, as The Medical Establishment puppets (the face-saving folk who say things such as, "well, I don't know exactly what's wrong with your daughter, but. . ." or who write the all-encompassing million-dollar word cop-out, etiology unknown, instead of offering a flat "I don't know") continue to assure us all is well with Ebola, and the prez harmonizes with them by refusing to stop flights from African nations.  Yet, other professional voices protest that there's so much we don't know about Ebola.

And then there's the "mystery virus," known otherwise as Enterovirus D68 or some publicly meaningless number, and our ears strain to hear medical representatives or members of the political class admit the obvious -- that allowing thousands or millions of disease-carrying human vectors to cross our borders without restriction has not only put our population at risk -- the situation now results in the death of young children quite likely exposed to infectious strangers in their neighborhoods.  The blame most likely sits squarely on the president's desk, and also upon the heads of his government partners who approved ignoring the human rodents illegally crossing the borders.  Do presidents ever deserve prison sentences?  Well, just what is appropriate for one who defies his oath of office (to defend our nation) and takes actions resulting in the deaths of innocent Americans and their children in the homeland?

Anybody at any level of government, national or local, should promise in their oath of office that any intentional betrayal of public trust or criminal activity will assure them a solid no-deal 20 years in prison, period.

The paralysis seeming to accompany Enterovirus infections of young children reminds me so much of Guillain-BarrĂ© syndrome, which I observed in several patients during my years in Air Force physical therapy.  My youngest patient was a 13 year-old girl who apparently started out with mononucleosis, but her symptoms quickly progressed to the GB syndrome, leaving her totally paralyzed from the neck down. The syndrome, a variety of peripheral polyneuritis -- basically a neurological manifestation -- generally involves pain, weakness and said paralysis.  The therapist's role is to keep major muscle groups and joints passively exercised until and even as the patient regains control, and in all of the handful of GB cases I experienced way, way back, the patients eventually and slowly took back motor control.  The process consumes months, however.

Yet, this appears not to be the case with children affected by the Enterovirus, as their symptoms are compared more to those of polio.  Truly, a frightening state of affairs -- and, again, I blame the president and supporters of his incredibly boneheaded decisions (and lack of them) regarding the border and invading peoples from Central America and, to be honest, from all over the globe.

To portray one's self as President Cool and act laid back in the White House while simultaneously wrecking the country is not an asset, nor is the promise to override Congress and bestow amnesty upon the undeserving.  The courts should get ready for this outrage.

Oklahoma Head: Call it what it is



A grandmother's head in Oklahoma did not simply dis-articulate and fall off her neck because of climate change.  It took a man with a sharp blade, reciting words of Islam all the way, to do the cowardly job.  The FBI is (endlessly) "investigating" whether this was terrorism, while the president assures us for the seven millionth time that Islam is a religion of peace.  Hell no, we aren't at war with Islam. 

Let's see if I have this equation correct:  One radical Muslim plus one knife blade plus one non-Muslim grandmother with a head on her shoulders equals one beheading and one death, except when you add one person with a gun plus the will to use it that equals another life or lives saved.

That's the kind of math I like, and it doesn't come out of a Common Core lesson.

Arm yourselves if you can, with something.  They are here, and you need to be as ready for them as they are for you.  The government?  The government can't save you, it can only take pictures and samples of blood stains after the fact.  We call not for armed paranoia, but for common sense and self-defense, just in case.  Unfortunately.  Multiculturalism, extremism and non-assimilation will destroy the USA.

Eric Holder's Leaking Legacy:   Numerous media sources on the conservative side want Holder prosecuted for Fast and Furious, among other things, and if nothing else he will be remembered for acting profoundly partisan regarding Obama, for acting more than a tad racist, and for not enforcing immigration laws.  I would take that one step further and speculate that his decision to sue Arizona and interfere with others who tried to enforce immigration laws may be directly responsible for illnesses crossing the border and infecting American children from coast to coast -- and we're referencing not only the flu-like illnesses, but the occasional instances of childhood paralysis showing up in concert with the other diseases.  When you allow thousands of nameless every bodies into a country, you're just asking for trouble, and by all indications American children are bearing the early brunt of Obama/Holder border non-enforcement.  As they say in the TV police shows, Mr. Holder, don't leave town -- if congressional investigators have the drive and the evidence, your presence might be requested.  Resignation?  After years of abusing the office of attorney general?  It's the coward's way out, and Obama's televised praise of the A.C. was indeed no better than, per the words of Sarah Palin, putting lipstick on a pig.  Eric Holder, you are no Robert Kennedy.

Japanese volcano illegally blows up!  Now that's global pollution by the megaton, and the fantasies of "global warming" can't touch this beast's power.  Who youse gonna sue over THIS indiscretion, EPA?  Yo mama?  Morons.

ISIS won't play nices:  Interesting that Mr. Obama blames the intelligence community when it appears the relevant facts were ripe for the picking for months -- and did you notice how, for a change, he didn't use the word, "we" in dumping on the intel folks? If we can't bomb them to eternity in a few days, why bother bombing at all?  What -- boots on the ground?  OUR boots?  We did that once, and the worthless Iraq army turned tail and ran.  Here's what:  Congressman, Senator --  If it comes to boots on the ground (and it already has), suit up your sons and daughters and UPS 'em to the Middle East front lines to help out.

UFO propulsion as you've never considered it?   Hit the link for Billy Cox in the margin and check out his September 23 Blog de Void entry entitled, "Any Takers?"  If UFOs involve extraterrestrial travel via intelligent species' but one suspects distances are too great, dramatic new theories might provide a solution.  Per Billy Cox:

"For example, if a UFO were to go. . .only to the point where gravity is just one ten thousandth of its maximum strength. . . then the distance to Alpha Centauri shrinks from 25 trillion miles to just 25 miles!"
