WEDNESDAY - October 29, 2014
Greetings once again from The Association Of Jingoistic Second Amendment Supporting Fossil Fuel Burning Lovers Of Old Movies Of West Texas.
I guess that this topic is appropriate for a host of things which I wish to address today.  When you get right down to it,  the way people behave says a lot about how they were brought up as children as well as the effectiveness of our present education system and how people perform in their various fields as adults.
In my first observation, my attention was drawn to a front page headline and subsequent article in the (Sub) Standard Times.  The headline read:   DID  DUNCAN GET  FAIR  TREATMENT?
And of course the article was referring to Robert Duncan, a Liberian man who was the first person in the United States diagnosed with Ebola.  The article went on to describe how members of his family were apparently not happy nor satisfied with the treatment facilities here in the United States and of course I feel sure that some type of law suit will be brought against the Dallas Hospital where Duncan received treatment.  AND of course I don't believe that the family was all that concerned about the TWO  MEDICAL  PERSONNEL   WHO  TREATED  DUNCAN  AND  ALSO  CAME  DOWN  WITH  THE DISEASE.   Now I can understand  Duncan's relatives being sad about his demise  BUT  how about  not losing  sight  of  the fact  that Duncan  LIED  ABOUT  SYMPTOMS  AND EXPOSURE  PRIOR  TO  ENTERING  THE  UNITED STATES  AND  AFTER  AS  WELL.     My point here is that  the  BEHAVIOR  of  Duncan himself  was one of the primary  causes of his not receiving  all of the necessary  treatment which might have been available HAD  HE  BEEN  TRUTHFUL. 
Now we have the big arguments going on about  quarantines AND self  monitoring.  Let's look first at SELF  MONITORING.   If memory serves me correctly,  the first  case of the fallacy of SELF MONITORING was in the State of New York by a DOCTOR  WHO  HAD  RECENTLY  RETURNED  FROM  WEST  AFRICA  WHERE  HE  HAD  BEEN   TREATING  EBOLA  PATIENTS.    Might the thought not cross your mind, having just returned from treating Ebola Patients in its country of origin, that  any feelings  of  weakness  or  fever SHOULD  PERHAPS  RING  A BELL?    SO  MUCH  FOR  SELF  MONITORING.  
And, it appears that we have another person who treated Ebola Patients griping about New Jersey wanting to quarantine her so after whining her way out of the quarantine in New Jersey and being allowed to return to her home state of Maine, she found that Maine also evidently wished her to remain in quarantine there to make sure that she was not infected with the disease.  She has threatened to sue if  not  released by tomorrow.
So, as far as I am concerned, both the N.Y. Doctor AND the Maine Nurse are excellent examples of SELFISH  BEHAVIOR insofar as having any concern  for  others  in their areas.
Here is one of my pet examples of BAD  BEHAVIOR.   I enjoy sports in general and football in particular BUT WHY  DO  PLAYERS, PARTICULARLY  IN  THE  N.F.L.  feel the need  to act  like  fools  after having scored a touchdown or made a good play on defense?  Every Sunday you can watch defensive backs bob their heads and make hand signals and generally act like idiots after they have basically done what they were supposed to have done.  AH, but last week end I was watching the end of a game between the New England Patriots and the Chicago Bears.  There were three minutes left in the game and New England was leading Chicago by the score of 48 to 23.  Now for those of you in the People's Republic of San Francisco that would mean that New England was ahead by TWENTY FIVE;  XXV;  25 points.  New England had the ball and was fairly deep in Chicago territory.  New England was playing their backup quarterback.  Anyway,  the quarterback dropped back to pass and a defensive end from Chicago tackled him for a loss.  Now keep in mind that they were down by 25 points with only 3 minutes left in the game.  After tackling the quarterback for a loss, the Chicago defensive end separated himself and crossed his arms and leaped high into the air and upon landing blew out his knee.  Even the announcers said that this was no time to be celebrating  and I had to agree.  BUT, this was once again an example of total SELFISH  BEHAVIOR.  I am sorry the young man is gone for the season but his actions were totally out of line.
Now let us look at  some of our elected officials.  I read last week that the Republican controlled  U.S. House of Representatives  this year had passed over 300 pieces of legislation which had been sent to the Democrat controlled United States Senate AND that NONE  OF  THEM  HAD  BEEN  BROUGHT  UP  FOR  A  SENATE  VOTE by the authority of  Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid.  If this is the case, and I have little doubt that it is not, why  do we keep hearing reports of how unhappy the American public is with the House of Representatives?   After careful study on this subject, I have reached the conclusion that the mainstream news media is coloring the truth to suit their agenda which is to back the Liberals/Democrats/Socialists.   SO, this would indicate to me that the BEHAVIOR  EXHIBITED  BY  THE  NEWS  MEDIA  ISUNTRUTHFULNESS!  Or if you live in Texas.... They're Lyin' Their Asses Off!
AND, how about the BEHAVIOR  of many of the politicians who are running for various positions nationwide?  The other day, I received one of those automated recorded calls from some candidate for the position of some level of Appellate Judge.  Anyway, this recording was assuring me that this particular candidate "WOULD  NOT  LEGISLATE  FROM  THE  BENCH".   Now I know that all Judges and potential Judges use this tired, worn out promise.  But let's look for a moment at damn near any Judge's
They make decisions in both Criminal and Civil cases which affect  the  results and in many instances the final decisions made.
Do you remember when the Affordable Health Care Act went before the U.S. Supreme Court?  This Health Care Act was the result of a piece of Legislation pushed by Barack Hussein Obama from the Executive Branch;   Passed by the U.S. House of Representatives with goofy ass Nancy Pelosi as the House Speaker;  then Passed by the United States Senate with Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader.... keeping in mind  that ALL  THREE OF  THESE  BODIES  WERE  UNDER  THE  INCOMPETENT  LEADERSHIP OF  DEMOCRATS/LIBERALS/SOCIALISTS.   SO, there is not much  argument  that  this unpopular act WAS  IN  FACT   A   PIECE  OF   LEGISLATION!  

SO, it finally goes before  the NINE  SUPREME  COURT  JUSTICES.... which even in the eyes of Liberals/Moderates/Progressives/Democrats/Socialists is THE  JUDICIAL Branch of our government with the FINAL say insofar as the Constitutionality of a piece of legislation OR the manner in which  a  legal proceedings was conducted.  With the voted TIED 4 to 4, so called Conservative Chief Justice Roberts decided that this piece of legislation WAS in fact a TAX.  SO, the result is that the American People are FORCED into participating in this Unconstitutional Act.   SO,  ALL  JUDICIAL  CANDIDATES,  PLEASE  SPARE  ME  THE  BIG  LIE  THAT  YOU  WILL  NOT  LEGISLATE  FROM  THE  BENCH.    IT  OCCURS DAMN NEAR  EVERY  DAY  AT  SOME  LEVEL.

"Now that the Western democracies have learned the hard way what the consequences are when you admit all sorts of people into your country -- including people who hate both the principles and the people of your society -- will that cause zealots for open borders and amnesty to have some second thoughts,  or  perhaps  some first  thoughts?"...............  THOMAS  SOWELL
"Attorney General Eric Holder hit a new low, even for him, when he acted indignant about the leak of evidence supporting the police officer in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting -- on grounds that this was an attempt to influence public opinion before the grand jury makes its ruling.  What was Holder doing from day one, other than trying to influence public opinion in the opposite direction?"............. THOMAS  SOWELL
"Except for Congressional elections, the most important election this year is the close race for governor of Wisconsin.  Governor Scott Walker has shown that he has substance and guts, rather than image and rhetoric, by opposing the government employee unions that have been bleeding the taxpayers.  He would make a far better Republican presidential candidate in 2016 than Congressional phrase-makers or a retreaded candidate who lost in 2012."...  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.".....

Well now, we have an Incompetent President who has appointed Ron Klein as EBOLA CZAR.  A man who evidently has no Medical or Public Health background.  AND, to boot, no one seems to have seen him since his appointment.  Perhaps the World's most intelligent and articulate human should toy with the idea of putting his picture on a milk carton and offering  a small reward when he is located.   OR, perhaps we would all be better off if Klein remains hidden.

Incidentally,  does anyone other than me wonder about a salary for this unnecessary position?  And how about  staff and office personnel?
I don't know about the rest of you but I am on the edge of my seat awaiting the "Soul Train Awards Show" which will be next month, hosted by BET (Black Entertainment Television).   I was knocked out at the prospect of  this  blue ribbon list of entertainers who will be honored:
Missy Elliot
Lil' Kim
Angie Martinez
Chris Brown
Pharrell Williams
Kool & the Gang
Tamar Braxton
Aloe Blacc
Nico & Vinz
Sevyn Streeter
Left Eye of TLC will be honored posthumously 
Damn!  I can hardly wait,  a real RAP  Reunion ............... OH  NO,  I  JUST  REMEMBERED  THAT  BET  HAS  BEEN  DROPPED  BY  SUDDENLINK  AND  WAS REPLACED BY THE MILITARY  HISTORY  CHANNEL.  Oh well,  if  any of you watch it,  be sure and give me an update............ on second thought..... never mind.
Please do not  forget  to get out and vote in November.  If you have the opportunity, vote early.  This is the most important  election  to come up in  the last few years and the Republican Party,  weak as they appear,  will be an improvement  over  the Democrats/Socialists.
