Rollin' Like Sisyphus

No, ‘Ebola’ Isn’t Swahili For An Honest And Forthright Government

Heads up.

Heads up.

So, as the ebola panic dies down and everyone returns to worrying about everything else, unsettling news seeps out from beneath the foundations of the halls of power that makes a cynic think Our Simple Affirmative Action President kinda wants to keep the ball rolling on the whole pandemic panic:

A top Republican congressman claims the Obama administration is exploring plans to bring non-U.S. citizens infected with Ebola to the United States for treatment. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News that his office has received “information from within the administration” that these plans are being developed. So far, only American Ebola patients have been brought back to the U.S. for treatment from the disease epicenter in West Africa.

Now why in the world would you actively attempt to import those infected with a highly lethal disease who are neither 1) trying to come here or 2) trying to come back here? Help me out here, I don’t understand the end game on this one, other than scaring the shit of an already shell-shocked and jittery population.
We can just see how that plays out.
A couple other headlines worthy of note.
First up, while saying nothing new, at least the UK Telegraph says it with pith:

Life under Obama sucks

I’m not going to quote any more than the headline. The story itself isn’t anything you haven’t already heard a dozen times since breakfast.
But there is one more thing worth sharing, beyond the spate of stories about people targeting cops throughout the Southland.
Fucking clowns:

French police are on high alert after fake clowns caused panic across France in a spreading phenomenon that has led to violence and a response by vigilantes.

Fourteen teenagers dressed as clowns and carrying pistols, knives and baseball bats were arrested outside a school in Agde, southern France, on Saturday. One provincial newspaper, Dauphiné Liberé, wrote: “These clowns aren’t funny any more.” In Montpellier, a 35-year-old man was beaten with a metal rod on Saturday night by a man dressed as a clown who tried to rob him with two accomplices. They were arrested the next day. A 19-year-old butcher’s apprentice, who had dressed as a clown to terrorise children in Douvrin, northern France, was given a six-month suspended prison sentence at a court in Béthune last week.

Of course, I would respond as some of the French are responding:

Meanwhile, some people have taken the clown hunt into their own hands. Police in Bordeaux stopped a dozen youths who were carrying sticks and metal rods and said they were hunting clowns. One was a 12-year-old boy armed with a dagger.

Vive la France.

    fake clowns

    Yeah, because there’s such a huge difference between psychos dressed in multicolored clothing, and real clowns.
