WEDNESDAY - October 8, 2014
Greetings once more from the Pro Second Amendment Jingoists Of West Texas.
First of all, let me make it clear that I am not trying to minimize  the breakout of EBOLA in Western Africa, nor am I trying to say that we should not all be very careful that this EBOLA virus does not reach epidemic  proportions  here in the United States.   And I am not even trying to say that Barack Hussein Obama and his band of USUAL  SUSPECTS  are  not concerned about  this apparently fairly untreatable disease.

BUT what I do wish to remind everyone of is the statements made by the Obama Administration several years back when Rahm Emmanuel was the White House Chief of Staff.   And that is this:   " NEVER  LET  A  GOOD  CRISIS  GO  TO  WASTE".
I sincerely believe  that  the  Criminal Administration of the world's most articulate and intelligent human are using the EBOLA outbreak to completely get the American Public to concentrate on EBOLA  over  BENGHAZI and  THE  MIDDLE  EAST.
They are apparently fairly successful in this venture as EBOLA is just about all the  news with rarely any mention at all of the Americans killed in the terrorist  attack  on the U.S.  Embassy staff back on September 11,  2012.
There have been some news reports on how effective the U.S. air  attacks against ISIS/ISIL  forces appear to be.  BUT, what I fail to understand about these air attacks is that our forces appear to be conducting  extremely surgical type attacks against communications locations and the occasional  Nissan pickup.   We have heard from the beginning and seen video clips of  American equipment and weapons which were seized by ISIS/ISIL forces from the Iraqi  Army early in the conflict.  The media have shown  that one video of the American tank doing do-nuts in an Iraqi street.
Earlier this week I watched one news conference being conducted by one of the incompetent vermin of the Obama Administration and this report told of 5 - V - Cinco - FIVE air attacks against ISIS/ISIL  locations.   Actually five air attacks in one day  seem  a  bit  short in my estimation.   I can remember in the first Gulf War in 1991  and also in the more recent Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as the war in Afghanistan  where literally hundreds of air assaults per day were not uncommon.
It appears to me as if these latest air assaults are fairly superficial in  nature and are actually doing little to decrease the effectiveness of the ISIS/ISIL forces.  From one of the reports,  there is a huge gathering of ISIS/ISIL forces along the Syrian/Turkish border.   Doesn't it appear that air attacks in large doses against these large gatherings might not be a trifle more effective than the blasting of the occasional Toyota pickup with a couple of guys with RPGs riding in the bed?
Now, let's get back to the EBOLA business.  I knew that it would appear in short order after the first guy, who died earlier today, was sent home on his first visit to the Dallas Emergency Room, that the reason he was sent home was.......... dare I say it?........ RACISM.   Of course the Reverend Jesse Jackson is allegedly on his way to the Dallas area to get involved.   SO, there must be a buck to be made somewhere or Jesse wouldn't be involved.
ALSO, I heard a report earlier today that in several locations in West Africa that their local health worker and public employees are ALL walking off the jobs  due to the danger involved AND also due to the  insufficient equipment  AND the pay being received.  So I guess what they are telling us is that the whole situation would be less dangerous if they had more stuff and more money.

ALSO,  we have been told that  this EBOLA virus CAN  ONLY  BE  SPREAD  BY  BODILY  FLUIDS.   However, I have heard a growing number of doctors and medical personnel say that  they are not  positive  that  this  is  the case and that  perhaps some of the contamination and spreading is possibly airborne.  Of course I am not in any way a medical expert but  I would have to be of the opinion that with as many people who are contracting the disease WHO  ARE  ALL  DRESSED  IN  PROTECTIVE  GEAR, that the bodily fluids story might be a bit misleading.  I hear one report earlier this morning that in several of those West African countries that the dead bodies are being left in the streets.
SO, I have come to the conclusion that  EBOLA  is  being caused AND spread due to one or more of the following factors:
1)   George Bush
2)   The Republican Party
3)    Billionaires
4)    The Sequester
5)    Budget Cuts
6)    Slavery
7)    Racism
8)    Sheriff Joe Arpaio
9)    Halliburton
10)  Big Oil Companies
11)  Dick Cheney
12)  Oversized Military
And the list could go on but I think you all get  the idea.... at least in the eyes of the Obama Administration and the mainstream media (who are still in the Democrat's pocket)
I urge every voter in every state that has one or more Democrat Senators to vote those Democrat Senators OUT come November.  If this is not done,  our proverbial  goose is cooked.

"There was a time  when an outbreak of a deadly disease overseas would bring virtually unanimous agreement that our top priority should be to keep it overseas.  Yet Barack Obama has refused to bar entry to the United States by people from countries where the Ebola epidemic rages,  as Britain has done."... THOMAS  SOWELL
"As if to emphasize his priorities, President Obama has ordered thousands of American troops to go into Ebola-stricken Liberia, disregarding the dangers to those troops and to other Americans when the troops return."........ THOMAS  SOWELL
"The erosion of Constitutional government over the years has become, under the Obama administration, a deluge of arbitrary edicts and defiant lawlessness protected by a grossly politicized Department of Justice."............  THOMAS  SOWELL
"An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!.... Sir, we are not weak if we make  a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power....  Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone.   There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us....   Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of the chains of slavery?  Forbid it, Almighty God.  I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.".....

I don't know how many of you are familiar with Hillsdale College or their publication "IMPRIMIS".   I have been receiving this small publication for several years and find it to be very informative and very interesting.   The publication is free.  A few times a year I will send in a small donation and wish I could do more.  I would suggest that you go to their site on the Internet and request to be placed on the mailing list.   Lots of good information and  this small college still subscribes  to  a  Constitutional Government.
Their latest publication has an article by Philip Hamburger of Columbia Law School.   This article is entitled:  THE  HISTORY  AND DANGER  OF  ADMINISTRATIVE  LAW.
This of course addresses Administrative Law as practiced today and can appear in the form of  an Executive Order.   The article traces this type of law back to 1887 when Congress  created the Interstate Commerce  Commission and points out that this type of bureau was expanded decade by decade.  Professor Hamburger argues that the rise of administrative law is essentially a re-emergence of the absolute power practiced by pre-modern kings.  He additionally points out that over the past 120 years, Americans have reestablished the very sort of power that the Constitution most centrally forbade.  Just look at some of the most powerful bodies in our government are agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, who control much of our lives through administrative regulations rather than Constitutionally created laws.

Keep in mind some of the first  substantive words in our Constitution are:  'ALL  LEGISLATIVE  POWERS  HEREIN GRANTED SHALL BE VESTED IN A CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES.   Notice, it say SHALL  BE  VESTED rather than MAY  BE  VESTED  or  SHOULD  BE  VESTED.    The word SHALL removes all doubt as to choice.
Anyway,  I think that most if not all of you will find this short publication to be very enlightening and if you are of a mind to donate money to an education  facility, I would sure suggest Hillsdale College.
An article in the (Sub) Standard Times proves the old saying that even a blind hog will find the occasional acorn.   An article from Monday, October 6, 2014  shared the following information:
Really?  Amazingly it only took six years under the inept, incompetent, leadership of Barack Hussein Obama for the liberal media to come to this earth shattering conclusion.
I get a monthly publication from our local Fort Concho Museum.  This little publication is only about 5 or 6 pages in length and has some really neat stuff in it about our United States Military in our area in the 1800's.  Generally they also have one page dedicated to one of our past U.S. Presidents.  They always have some really interesting facts about these past Presidents.  This past month the President was President James Garfield who was President for only 200 days prior to dying as the result of an assassin's bullet.  President Garfield  was a really interesting man who served in the Civil War and has the distinction of being the only sitting member of the House to be elected President  AND has the distinction of being a U.S. Representative;   a Senate-elect;  AND  a President-elect  ALL  AT  THE  SAME  TIME.  He was a very smart man and spoke several languages fluently.   The article said:   "Garfield was the first ambidextrous President.   You could ask him a question in English and he would SIMULTANEOUSLY  WRITE THE ANSWER IN GREEK WITH ONE HAND AND LATIN WITH THE OTHER."    Hey!  Wait a minute!  I sure hope they were not trying to say that President James Garfield was more intelligent  than the world's most articulate human.  Anyway, interesting  information on an  good man.
I was also reading some information on the Spartan society.  Of course the Spartans were  recognized as being excellent  soldiers who with much smaller forces defeated the armies of Persia under Xerxes.  Additionally, their  civil  government was also apparently a tad unusual.  This article went along with a program I viewed several times on The History Channel.  After a male had fulfilled his duties in the Spartan Military (which began at AGE  7), and they were elected to a position in the civil government, after their term in office..... THEY  WERE  PLACED  ON  TRIAL  and  if  they had done a good job  they were released BUT if they were found to have done a poor job they were punished.   All in all.... not a bad  idea.
This week on the ENCORE  WESTERN Channel they are showing about three and one half  hours  per night of one of my all time favorite Western Mini-Series.  And that would be CENTENNIAL based upon the novel by James Michener.  If you have not seen this series in its entirety I would urge you to rent the DVDs and watch it.  Great story.  Great cast and just all around great entertainment.  It had more really good actors than almost anything I have ever seen.  A really super performance was turned in by Stephen McHattie who played Jacques Pasquinel, the   half-breed son of Pasquinel the trapper and his wife Clay Basket.   It had beautiful scenery and is shown in 12 parts, each one a continuation of the history of a region of Colorado from the 1820's to the 1970's.   Although it had excellent special effects, like all really great films, it depended upon really good acting to carry the story.  I will watch the next two episodes tonight.

This is one of those films, sort of like Lonesome Dove  and Stagecoach  and Zulu  and  The Shootist  and Casablanca,  that  is worth watching  multiple times.  I watched it when it  first aired in 1978 and have watched it  in its entirety at least  5 times.... this will make perhaps my sixth.  It is that good.
