These Crisis Points come and go….
Am I the only one who recalls the Zika virus ‘crisis’ last year? We pumped $1.6 billion in taxpayer dollars to solve the problem.
Projections were dire.
In July of last year, CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden called Puerto Rico’s Zika epidemic “horrifying.” He warned it could sicken 10,000 pregnant Puerto Rican women in 2016 alone, causing catastrophic birth defects in hundreds of babies.
Fortunately, that didn’t happen. How could CDC have gotten it so wrong? And what happened to the monty that we threw into that rat-hole in Puerto Rico? Once they gorged on American pork, there was no more need for money for Zika.
The progressive left needs something to wring its hands about. The 24 hour news cycle must report on some sort of crisis – breaking news. Either its illegal aliens who cross the US Border illegally and end up being detained with minors segregated, or it’s anger at President Trump threatening North Korea, or it’s President Trump making peace with North Korea. The daily crisis points come and go. Who can forget Harambe, the gorilla? Don’t tell me that you forgot Harambe.
Germany agreed to drop all tariffs on imports of our autos into the Fatherland if we would our much smaller import tariffs on their cars. Isn’t that amazing? Where are the corrupt, smug, sly, lying, elite media reports on that? Maybe they’re getting tired of winning?
Volcano coverage in Hawaii has stopped. Did the volcano stop erupting?
I'm afraid I could never be a leftist. I require a valid reason to get angry about something.
Turn on CNN for the daily focus of hate of the day. The Ministry of Truth in Orwell's 1984 had it down and the elite media works hard to mirror that. There are a couple of female anchors on MSNBC who bring this quote to mind from 1984. "It was always the women, and above all the young ones, who were the most bigoted adherents of the Party, the swallowers of slogans, the amateur spies and nosers-out of unorthodoxy."
I have been wondering about the volcano in Hawaii, also. Bigger island? New island? Sinking island? So much to worry about.
I do pray for God to watch over them and his will be done.
LL, are you against full employment? All those "reporters" and "editors" need to keep busy filling airtime and print so the sales force can generate the revenue. Don't you agree jobs are much more invigorating when you work with people who think like you? And the MISSION! Don't forget the mission. Morale, don't you know.
Yeah, I know. Not a gifted sarcasm writer.
Harambe weeps. We will never forget.
The MSM mantra has always been "If It Bleeds, It Leads", but at least they used to report what could arguably be called "real news".
Then it got to be if nothing happened, they'd dig something old up.
And so on, and so on.
Nowadays, they not only make stuff up, they put a political spin on it to benefit 'their side'.
Nobody dying in Hawaii. It got boring… sigh
You forgot to mention the bird flu that was going to kill off the human race. Or the coming ice age that was going to freeze all our asses off. Now the rise in temps is going to boil off the oceans and we will all die.
The MSM is killing itself off with all of this crap. I just wish they would go off into that good night a little quicker.
More shore line for developers to put condos on – eventually.
Yes, the corrupt, elite media does employ the otherwise unemployable.
Don't forget Samuel L. Jackson and others who started the "dicks out for Harambe" movement shortly after his tragic death. Black people, mainly college students carried out the practice and none were expelled – such was the grief at the loss of the monkey.
The FBI, IRS, EPA and other agencies were co-opted during the era of ObamaNation and the left laments now that the age passed (finally). They still cling to Stormy, Russia and other stupid BS in the hopes of regaining past glory. Sort of like hippies trying to relive the 1960's.
Not enough dirty laundry.
they're too busy lying. this a.m. on the radio they reported the EU was BEGINNING tariffs on Harley Davidson and others today in response to trump tariffs on their goods. that will be news to Harley, since they have been paying huge tariffs for years already. maybe they can get their money back….I can't even begin to get into the crooked cdc, not enough bandwidth to get it all out. suffice it to say their last director was pushing worthless flu shots while heavily invested in the manufacturer.
Please pay attention to your betters, Fredd. They know what's good for you and will lead you to a land of rainbows, unicorns and free cheese.
The EU is planning to drop tariffs on almost everything to avoid having US markets closed to them (by the US mirroring the tariffs they imposed on us). Canada is left alone, with their pants around their ankles. Tell me again why they elected Fidel's son, Trudeau? (yes, I know that we elected Obama – but they should have LEARNED from our misfortune.
