Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammo

If you choose to put your faith and trust in an institution made up, almost entirely, of politicians, lawyers, and bureaucrats, then you're dumb.  And that's disappointing.

If, on the other hand, you choose to shun (or worse, ostracize) me for standing opposed to all the king's men, then you're not just dumb, but wicked.  And that's infuriating.

Just to bring you up to speed, this guy, appointed "Ebola Czar" was quoted as having said, “I think the top leadership challenge issue in our world today is how to deal with the continuing, growing population in the world..."  There's video of this very statement at the link.

Not just a challenge, but the challenge.  If population control was not their perceived benefit, they'd certainly behave much differently than they are.  The regime's choice of Klipboard Klain is a feature of their intentions, not a bug.  And their intentions are wicked, beyond your worst imagining...beyond your imagination, that is, unless you're as wicked as they are.  And, absent your embrace, I can hardly help but recognize that as the ever-more-likely possibility.
Per Bracken's advice, I'm reading Camus' The Plague.  3/5 of the way through, the overriding sentiment is widespread anguish over the isolation and loneliness amongst those quarantined in Oran.  I don't like my own loneliness and exile any more than they did theirs, but you folks, "family" and "friends", have helped condition me for that over these last several years.  A hardened heart; thanks for that, at least.
The recent dearth of bloggage, here at the ST&L, has mostly been due to the fact that I can't read and process all the info I'm after fast enough to sate my own appetite, much less chew it thoroughly and regurgitate it for anyone else concerned.  And the predictable trend is for that to continue.
If you came here looking for insight, get ye otherwise to WRSA and Aesop.  If there's a headquarters for the freedom movement, CA's place is it.  And if there's a more astute, prolifically-ongoing breakdown of all things Obola-related, than the Raconteur Report (of special worth: this), then I wanna know about it.
Sam at Guerrillamerica recently advised color-coding the results of the recon you've made vis-à-vis your AO.  I think that's a fine idea, and one more thing that needs doing, right in the Livermush Redoubt.  There are houses that easily get assigned red stickers, but blue ones are in dreadfully short supply.  Please, please, please raise your hand if you think you qualify.
Time is of the essence.
  1. There is no certainty that Ebola cannot be spread through the air.
  2. Persons have presented, and will do so again, without fever.  That is, they're sick and otherwise symptomatic, but don't have a high (passed the 101.5? threshold) fever.
  3. The 21-day contagiousness/incubation window is not an absolute.
Last, I fear that those 4,000 soldiers being sent to the worst areas of the epidemic are not a genuine humanitarian mission.  That their 4-hours of "training" and zero effective PPE indicate something, instead, absolutely sinister.  This administration fully expects them to contract Ebola, and then come home for treatment.  Then, it's game on and game over.
I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.
