More Quarantine Baloney

In lifting the quarantine on a nurse in Maine, the judge made the following statement:

“The court is fully aware of the misconceptions, misinformation, bad science, and bad information being spread from shore to shore in our country with respect to Ebola,” the judge said. “The Court is fully aware that people are acting out of fear and that this fear is not entirely rational. However, whether that fear is rational or not, it is present and it is real. She should guide herself accordingly.”

Is this judge a doctor, a scientist, a psychiatrist? I don't think so. Then how could he possibly be "fully aware" of all the things he claims?

Fear may or may not be rational, but it is something that over the history of the human species has served to keep us alive.

The judge's other statement (the nurse “currently does not show symptoms of Ebola and is therefore not infectious”) is a non sequitur which seems to rely on dogma instead of fact. She would not be infectious only if she is not carrying the virus. Not showing symptoms really does not prove anything.

Oh well, this is the sort of legal decision that has continued to plague our country in recent times. Hopefully no one will die because of it.

By the way, Canada has stopped issuing visas for persons in the Ebola epidemic area:

Was that decision also based upon "misconceptions, misinformation, bad science, and/or bad information"? Or does Canada know something of which our judge was not "fully aware"?

Was The Ottowa Shooting A Hoax ???

Take a look at this report from the Memory Hole blog and tell me whether or not you smell a rat:

Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon, and now this. Why do the facts never seem to add up?

Swarm Of Robots Works Together

Here is a report of an experiment is which robots worked together in a sort of hive mentality:

Very cute, but if you've ever seen the movie I, Robot, you can see where this is going.

Rich Man, Poor Man

This chart shows household net worth by quartile in the US:

It's a bit dated, but you get the picture. The rich are very rich, while the poor are very poor in comparison.

Ebola Story Keeps Changing

Why is the "official story" about Ebola continually changing?

Considering the fact that our "leaders" and "experts" cannot seem to make up their minds about the characteristics of this virus and the current epidemic, aren't We The People more than justified in being worried?

ADD And ADHD Are Correlated With Creativity And Achievement

Some of the world's greatest achievers had ADD and/or ADHD:

So why are our school systems suppressing such boys, other than to achieve some sort of twisted gender-related agenda?

Firing Squad For The Homeless

Here is a disturbing video of a homeless man with a pen knife being shot to death by a police firing squad:

It appears that the man was only trying to defend himself against an imminent attack by a police dog, but these brave cops were so alarmed and threatened by this nearly helpless man that they shot 46 rounds at him.

And then the DOJ cleared the cops of any wrongdoing.

Nothing justifies the killing of innocent people, except following proper police procedure.
