Eat Shit, it can Save Your Life!

Eating shit can save your life if you are in an isolated village in Africa and your caregiver relative is an Ebola survivor. However the relative might instead chew your food for you like mothers in Africa do their little children, that is providing the relative isn’t an old lady without teeth,

The Cuban embargo can save thousands if not millions of people from Ebola

First of all Cuban’s medical teams already saved almost a thousand Africans from dying from Ebola and without the US embargo Cuban medical aid would show down.

Second of all, Cuban doctor Felix Baez Sarria who got Ebola already told his brother that he plans to go back to Africa when he gets cured. Cuba plans each medical team carefully. Dr. Sarria is likely be be part of a new team where he works directly with patients maybe without masks and gloves and the rest of the team staying slightly in the background. With an exhausted Doctors Without Borders personnel, changing procedure could be temporarily dangerous. There are thousands of Ebola survivors that can treat the newly sick without protection the UN already has a small program with infants. As soon as it becomes the norm for survivors to work without protection many thousands of lives will be saved,

I think the world may soon be extremely grateful for the US Embargo of Cuba. In therebellions tribal North of Pakistan, nurses giving out polio shots are being assassinated, and may continue to be during the first weeks of an Ebola epidemic. Despite religious leaders publicly taking their kids to be inoculated, and condemning the killings as being against Islam.Extremistscan’t stand America, NATO, India, and when it comes to China, China being as close to Pakistan as the US is to Israel gets on their nerves. Again the Embargo can save the day if it leads to Cuban doctors not being shot at in Pakistan. The US could give Cuba $30,000 for each doctor Cuba sends to Pakistan to fight polio, and be on hand when Ebola strikes. Though part of the 6 billion Obama wants for Ebola could be spent on one-hour Ebola tests and other things the US does best. By the way the US could give far less than 30 thousand if it makes it clear to Cuba that the Embargo would be lifted, as soon as militants accept Cuban doctors,

I am amazed at the difference in reaction from the assertion that Jesus rose from the dead with that of others who have lost a lot of body fluids. Perhaps putting Ebola victims who spent two days without treatment into a deep coma would give the body time to make antibodies.

Ending privacy especially in a hospital can save many from dieing from Ebola. Embedded cameras everywhere would let a nurse know when she or he got in contact with Ebola and get an experimental vaccine a few minutes later if cameras were constantly monitored. Demand everything everywhere be recorded, perhaps only with a court order may sensitive material to discussed or acted upon. Side note bin Laden was outed by spying on a relatives DNA, we got to make sure that criminals don’t get punished for material gathered under false pretenses even with a court order. However every innocent person could be off of death row despite no court order in their regard.

If only 50% or even 40% of those who get Ebola without profession treatment around survive, it should be more than enough to treat the sick or drive trucks around with food or even to harvest the crops laying fallow. What is wrong are we all sleep walking or am I the little boy in the fairy tale The Emperors New Clothes. Millions of lives of lives can be saved if I can wake everyone up,

The Weekend Roundup for November 22-23rd, 2014



I'm retired in Philadelphia. Non religious but there seems to be a life force that I see as more personal than is usually expressed.

I was raised a Quaker (common with Christian Jewish intermarriage back them) But my father was a total pacifist and during World War II, at the time that being so was difficult.

Upbringing included father trying not to get physical, yet still defend us kids from my harsh stepmother until she got her citizenship papers, after which they could get divorced. Been involved in peace issues since the anti-fallout shelter protests through Vietnam and Iraq.

I wrote "Greedy Little Squirrels and Lifeboat ethics,” 1977, when the Moonies were coming to America and got heavily harassed by them. I also think bin Laden is extremely dangerous like the leader of a barroom brawl, who has been manipulating this country into using the US to get Muslims angry enough to join his suicidal permanent war group. Before 9/11 young Muslims rebelled by wearing by covering their hair a little less than expected and at least winking at each other, now he changed rebellion into being militancy. The Northern Alliance would have been legitimately in charge long ago had he not baited the US into entering Afghanistan.

Obama is making a mistake in my mind with how to stop bin Laden’s dream of permanent war in a divided world but less of a mistake than most anyone else would. If due to currency collapses from out ever more expensive weapons the US stops fighting al Qaeda, then other counties will. If it ends up being Iran, the Sunni Shiite divide will be enormous. Al Qaeda is already convinced that the atheist China is a serious enemy, and the Russians have fought for brutally and inadvertently convinced far more Muslims than the US did that they considered Islam itself to be the enemy.

I never stopped supporting Jimmy Carter when everyone turned on him and I support Obama as well, but think he will have to use a lot more persuasion and less force if they aren’t going to succeed at bankrupting us. However Obama has tried less force and al Qaeda has started to respond in kind trying to limit the victim’s in the way of their primary attacks.
