Obama and the Virus

Our Commander-in-Chief is waging a strange new kind of war, using soldiers to fight a virus (What with? Carbines?) in Liberia, while at the same time allowing people with the "enemy" virus into the country.

Thomas Sowell, writing in the National Review, makes the case for Obama being a traitor to his people and his country. Here's the introduction:

"The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is both a danger in itself and a wake-up call for Americans — about President Obama, about the institutions of this country, and, most important, about ourselves.

"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.

"The reason? Refusing to let people with Ebola enter the United States would conflict with the goal of fighting the disease. In other words, the safety of the American people takes second place to the goal of helping people overseas.

"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.

"What does this say about Obama?"

Good question. You can read the whole thing here.

Napalm, applied appropriately, eliminates ebola. So are fuel-air explosions.

Fine and good, but if he doesn't stop the flights, we'll need to bomb Dallas.
Dallas probably deserves it... but I have family there so I can't get on board with that plan.

I can't BEGIN to describe my fury at the way Obama is handling this situation. It. seems. so. SIMPLE. and. BASIC. And yet he's doing the exact opposite of what he should be, sending our citizens there!!

Give him a day or two and he'll probably start offering free flights between Liberia and all Republican states.

LSP said...

But Jenny, stopping flights would help the virus spread!

Maybe we should fuel-air DC?

Just a thought.

You're quoting Thomas Sowell here. Didn't the NBC commentator, and religious icon, Reverend Al Sharpton publicly condemn Sowell as a "traitor to his race"?

LSP said...

I like Al Sharpton for his honest, no nonsense, integrity.

LL said...

Al Sharpton is a reverend, and so, for the record, is Jessie Jackson. Taken together they are revered and funded for their understanding of the will of Baal.

I hadn't thought of them as Baalists. Now I do.
