A CDC/NIH that’s clueless on Ebola but knows a lot about fat lesbians, duck genitalia and gun control. The head of CDC came from NYC but they spent their time on nanny-state crap under Bloomberg and still are under De Blasio. CDC evidently assumed the “C” stood for Construction because they’ve been pouring their money into new buildings in Atlanta. CDC stands for Center for Disease Control. Exhibit A= New Employee gym with light show, not a disease. Exhibit B= Ebola. See how easy that was?
Similarly, NAS:, Exhibit A= Muslim self esteem, not aeronautical or space. Exhibit B=space travel. State Dept: Exhibit A=blabbing about a potential agreement with Turkey= not diplomatic. Exhibit B= keeping your mouth shut when you find Osama bin Ladin’s compound in Pakistan so you can hit him later= diplomatic [yeah that was the Bush admin]. Our current government is incompetent because their top priority is making political points, winning elections, scoring fundraising and installing a political ideology of socialism that will outlast the current administration and resist reform. We end up with corruption and idiocy. Those 2 gals at State plus John Kerry are a dark tragedy because they’re pathetically dumb while they lie with straight faces but we used to have real diplomats there, not politicians. IOW, we’re on our way to being France without the language or good cheeses.
Send More Money. Feed Me, Seymour. http://patterico.com/2014/10/13/nih-we-could-have-developed-an-ebola-vaccine-but-for-budget-cuts/ One senator, Tom Coburn who’s also a doctor [man, we’re going to miss him] already hit the CDC for wasteful spending that ignored their mission.
Instead of shipping our military to West Africa, why didn’t the UN WHO go? We waste tons of $$ on the likes of the World Health Organization, so this sounds like a job for them. Alas, they’re in Russia to raise taxes on developed countries [translation: US] to help victims of our tobacco exports [translation: poor countries who want our money and are voting members of UN/WHO]. Send More Money. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/10/13/who-tobacco-conference-bans-public-from-meetings-moves-forward-on-taxes/
Protect us? This president and his flunkies specialize in putting us at all kinds of risk. Future Democratic voters, though. http://cnsnews.com/news/article/melanie-hunter/10-unaccompanied-illegal-alien-minors-diagnosed-tb

Kentucky is #1 in dumb Democratic candidates. Hey that’s quite an achievement. http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2014/10/14/2014s-most-cringe-inducing-moment-alison-lundergan-grimes-obama-vote/. The DSCC has pulled ad money from the grimes campaign but they’re betting a visit from Hillary and 2 visits from Bill plus a massive get out the vote action on election day can win for her. KY has more Dems than GOP plus the MSM is Dem so it might work. Mitch should come out and apologize to Tea Party for his ‘crush them’ comment but that’s the price for being a centrist Repub in a Dem state.
In Illinois, 2 lobbyists for the teacher unions substitute taught for one day to qualify for $1Million in retirement pay. If that doesn’t sound sane, you must have ignored the words “Illinois teacher unions.” http://collegeinsurrection.com/2014/10/only-in-illinois-substitute-teach-for-one-day-receive-1-million-taxpayer-funded-pension/
The US is giving an additional $212 M to the Palestinians/Hamas w/o conditions. The rest of the world is giving $Billions, more than to Ebola fight. Think we know what Hamas will spend it on. http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Fundamentally-Freund-Is-rebuilding-Gaza-more-important-than-halting-Ebola-378797
And finally, our First Lady dances with a ….. turnip… to rap music. Why? Because some leftie celebs told her it would help garner young – but obviously not too bright – voters. There’s videos but why do that to yourself? http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2014/10/15/michelle-weird-rap-turnip/
I miss having adults in charge in DC.
