So it appears that there is another school shooting. It just so happens that it is in the Seattle, Washington area. Another kid gone wrong. Sorry but all I have so far is this CNN report so don’t put too much stock in it as of yet. I’m sure more will come available with time as to the why.

And while this is starting to unfold, along comes another report so fresh, all I could find was this. Seems that some radical male and female x-panics have shot 3 policeman in Sacramento. What in the hell is going on with these lefties? Are they producing disgruntled citizens or what? And why are cops the sought after target all of a sudden? Strange.

I apologize for the lack of posts recently. Old ACT has been having multiple medical issues needing immediate attention and, although I love this blog, staying SUNNY-side up is my number one priority (Mama’s also). As the saying goes, when it rains, it pours. Always looking to have you excellent commenters write some posts now and again. If it is worth saying, it is worth your opinion and take on matters. No, I don’t pay for posts but you will always have my gratitude. That said and while we are on the subject of medicine, I have wanted to address this issue for many days now.

It appears that a very active and detrimental virus is starting to sweep the nation. The Enterovirus 68 is what is at hand. It was first found in California in 1962. It appears to stem from a form of hand-foot-mouth disease with a steroid kicker. Follow my bouncing ball here. The typical season is between July to October and is spread, like most other viruses, through children in the school system. An article on its spread is here. No one seems to understand or wants to speculate why it has cropped up in 10 states and coming to a state near you. Well, I’m going to speculate on everything I know and have read.

Third world countries have poor healthcare where most of the citizens do not receive care needed for certain illnesses until they have escalated to an advanced stage. This country of ours is seeing more cases of virus and diseases which have long ago been completely controlled or eradicated. Why? Because of the mode of transportation in and out of our country. Health record documents and immunizations seem to be a thing of the past. Oh, we will get these things done when traveling to a high risk country so that we don’t get or bring back these cooties. But what about foreign travelers? And what about the illegals pouring through our non-existent borders? I think I am on to something here. Americans are incurring an influx of disease on an extraordinary scale, all brought to us by our lackadaisical, incompetent and corrupt government. Period. Now that I have dropped this steaming blivit at your feet, prove me wrong. Only a liberal could spin this one. Although there could always be another answer (that could be correct), the data out there gravitates to what I have stated above. It can only get worse, folks.

As can be read here, the Ebola virus comes in five known strains. It is nasty and it is deadly…..up to 90% rate of fatality. Good thing it stays on the African continent where it sprang from, right? Not so much. Because the world is getting smaller, with more people and more use of transportation, nothing is off the table. Here is a story on the recent outbreak. And with the previous article you will note that it is being transmitted by animals but not causing outbreak in humans. It leaves “antibodies” in the victim. ANY virus can come back to life in a human under the correct conditions.

Unfortunately, many diseases seem to thrive and survive in areas where there are poor conditions of human life, like third world countries. And, although many good Samaritans are working in those areas to uplift that lifestyle, sometimes the best that can be done is to keep things in check–no better and no worse. With that in mind, as well the “benign” looking symptoms that Ebola starts with, think about people coming to this country unchecked medically. Think of the diseases which have been eradicated here making a comeback from people entering our borders……checked and unchecked. We live in an environment today with people and an administration that carry a laissez faire attitude about illegals entering our country. The stew is being made right under our noses.

The Berlin airlift came about when the communist DDR walled off West Berlin, essentially land locking the city. Regardless of the wall, the Americans jumped it from the air. Now we have an issue on our southern border with having illegal aliens escape their own countries going right across our porous border. What makes it a perilous trip is not Mexico trying to keep people IN the country but promoting they go to the U.S. and send back greenbacks. In order to do that, these illegals have to get past the predators, laying in wait, within the borders of Mexico and Central America. That alone should help to deter the influx of illegals but those illegals, knowing they will stay in America if they make it, feel the trek is worth the risks.

Now Obama wants to eliminate the risks, sidestep Congress once again, and bring about a new illegal class–the refuge. But it won’t stop with his little experiment. There will soon be refuge assessment centers in every country, kinda like ObamaCare exchanges. Just another scheme to break our bank faster. We might have to go to war with Mexico sometime soon and send the refuges to South America. This administration is way out of hand.

The speech just happened so I cannot post what he said. I will tell you the lies and deceit make my skin crawl. Obama talks about Boehner being held hostage by the Tea Party and Boehner will not act on immigration reform this year, even though there are enough bi-partisan votes in the house to pass it. Obama says it doesn’t make any sense because without fixing our broken system, 11+ million illegals won’t come out of hiding and pay taxes and fines, learn English and go on to a path of citizenship by going to the back of the line. It means that the border will remain unprotected. It means that illegals trying to get here will remain in harms way from cartels and coyotes. If Boehner would just put it to the House for an up or down vote, then immigration reform would take place and he would sign the bill. Now he has to get with Homeland Security and the Attorney General to find HOW MUCH he can get around Congress with his executive actions. He would rather it go the right way with Congress’ approval but he will not wait anymore to act and fix this problem. Oh yeah. And being a public servant, you are expected to take care of the needs of the public. The needs of the public.

I have seen nothing about the needs of the public from this guy and his administration. He has an agenda and he wants it completed before he goes bye-bye. Just like he wants immigration reform before the 2014 mid-term elections. Wonder why. He never says anything about Harry Reid not holding an up or down vote on bi-partisan issues presented to the Senate. Reason being, those votes don’t fit Obama’s agenda and would hurt the credibility of the Democrat party (can’t have that) while making things better for the nation. But Obama wants the GOP to help him with his agenda, which would invariably hurt the nation. Like he says, it makes no sense. And what about fixing our immigration system? He is talking amnesty for 11 million (at least triple that figure) so that we can have legal low wage, unskilled, menial labor. There is only so much grass to mow, so many house to clean, limited amount of fast food service businesses and just so much trenches to dig.

It isn’t that you haven’t heard this speech before. I will update when it comes available. In the mean time, pinch your butt cheeks and open your wallets cause here comes another round of Obama “helping”. Don’t forget to keep up your health insurance because you are going to need the service for all these diseases that keep cropping up in the U.S.

UPDATE: Here is a site with all related stories and the speech

We all know that the GOP in Congress is the party of not-conservative. They state they are and turn right around and do things to aid liberal convictions. The Tea Party members of the GOP (who are more true conservatives) are shutdown and ridiculed at every turn by the GOP as a whole. Since the GOP was always associated as the party of conservatism, what happened? I know that over the years I have butt heads with hundreds of people on this subject of “the party”. What I hear most of all is that the GOP needs to win at all costs. This means to me that you trash principles and only field “winnable” candidates so as to have an “R” in some political seat. But what does that do for the people? We have R’s on the LCBOS and most of them could be Dems and you would never know the difference. I made that distinction before they were even elected. No, the GOP is NOT the party or voice of conservatism as is plainly obvious today.

Moving forward, in the news is the appointment of Shaun Kenney of Bearing Drift to executive director of the RPV. Don’t now the guy. I understand that he has made statements in February that “nativists” need to be purged from the party, and I know where that comes from and who it is directed to. But why say that? It is true that the GOP is looking to enhance its rank and file with a new breed of Republican ( opening more doors for homosexuals, Latinos, independents and women) that, supposedly, were somehow shunned from the party. And how that is done is to show these groups that you are flexible and believe in their causes. So every time the Dems come up with a trumped up issue, the GOP needs to counter with their own form on the trumped up issue. But where does law and Constitution fit in all this? We have laws to be obeyed or we change them when the majority of citizens want that. Same with the Constitution. Until that time, you don’t just arbitrarily ignore those laws because you don’t like or believe in them and you don’t ignore them to help affect change, but rather abide and enforce them UNTIL that change is made. So what gives on this statement about purging nativists from the party? Are they nativists because they hold to enforcing the law and Constitution?

The issue is immigration. No one of sane mind will ever hold someone accountable for just LISTENING, especially if it is part of your job description. I just wish that more people would do some listening as it is a skill necessary to have dialogue. You don’t need to agree with what is said but you do need to understand (from the speakers viewpoint). Conversely, a sane person will hold you accountable for what comes out of your mouth, and rightly so. The GOP wants to grow. Immigration is a hotly contested issue and favors the Dems with this voting block. Even if the GOP promises the world, if there is no “free” involved, the GOP gets nothing. Nada. Zilch. Let’s suppose, hypothetically, that they do get something. At what cost and to whom? Should we just have open borders and open the flood gates so that established citizens are left out in the cold and lose their American dream that they have worked so hard for, following,the rules and paying,their dues?

Which brings me forward to this: last night I was at a church in the area. The place was slammed with people and there were two buses in the parking lot. There was a meeting going on inside for this group, as churches often have various meetings for different things. What bothered me about this were the buses, decorated with this bold statement: “Immigration Reform and Amnesty Now”. Oops. So reforming immigration laws, which do need to be changed to obtain the brightest and necessary talent, is tied to amnesty. This is a progressive argument. When someone like the GOP talks about being for immigration reform, is that really the whole story? Is it being sought with amnesty, on the backs of all American citizens? Can you have one without the other? What about those laws and the Constitution that spell this out? Then again, where have all the conservatives in the GOP gone? Who’s party is it anyway?
