Lunacy, Fear-Mongering Over Ebola Reaches New Heights in Arizona

I never thought that the absolute lunacy over the NON-EXISTENT threat to Americans of ebola could ever surpass what has transpired in the state of Maine, caused there by the acts and idiocy of unquestionably the STUPIDEST MAN EVER ELECTED GOVERNOR IN ANY US STATE, EVER, Paul LePage, the idiot who holds that office in Maine. LePage, the tea party scumbag who became infamous nationally for his lunatic partisan act of removing the mural depicting the History of the Labor Movement from the State Department of Labor building, created a national furor over his unconstitutional harassment and false imprisonment of heroic nurse Kaci Hickox. But now, in the fascist state of Arizona, new levels of stupidity have been reached.

At the heart of all of this is the utter incompetence, and again stupidity, of people who are elected to office, and in the case of the fascist state of Arizona, wear badges. They fail to understand two basic facts, that 90% of Americans, well, at least 90% of Americans who are NOT right wing, tea-party brain-washed lemmings who believe the lies and bullshit piped into their homes

every hour of every day by fox fixed new noise, know to be true. One is that MILLIONS of Americans every day of every week of every month of every year, have a fever, 99.99999% due to colds, flu, non-lethal or life-threatening infections, or the like, and that number two, that Africa is a GIANT CONTINENT, the SECOND LARGEST on earth, with 25% more land than North America! So, when someone travels to Africa, 90% of the time they are not within hundreds of miles, and in most cases not within thousands of miles, of the three countries in central, western Africa, that have seen cases of ebola. Countries such as Zambia, in south-central Africa, 2,500 miles from Liberia and the other two countries that have had ebola outbreaks, and unlike the UNITED STATES, has NEVER HAD A SINGLE CASE OF EBOLA!

Tell that to the fascist state of Arizona, and to their Gestapo.

It seems that Pastor Michael Petzer, who had traveled to Zambia a couple of months ago, was rousted by Tucson police at 2:00 am a couple of mornings ago, when a LUNATIC

Terracotta Composting 50-Plant Garden Tower by Garden Tower Project
member of his congregation had gone to a hospital convinced that she had ebola. What did she tell the hospital personnel? She told them that the pastor of her church had recently been to Africa. So what happened then? Well, hospital personnel, who SHOULD ALL BE FIRED, called the Tucson police, who paid this little visit to Pastor Petzer. At
2:00 am.

The issue was ultimately resolved, as Petzer was well past that infamous 21-day incubation period, but what if he had not been passed it? What then would have happened? Most like another Hickox situation, and unconstitutional act in the name of ….. STUPIDITY and over-reaching power.

Petzer had the following statement afterwards:

“I think this is hysteria, and a zero understanding of geography…

““I am now in a country that has had Ebola. I traveled from a noninfected country to one (United States) where there are people in quarantine… I think this is an issue of public ignorance and not an issue of public health. People hear Africa, and everyone thinks ‘Ebola.’ Most Americans do not have a clue that Africa is a large continent and not a country. People have to stop the hysteria of it all.”

Wise words from Petzer. Too bad the fascists who rule Arizona, and Maine, have no such understanding.

The joke of the gop’s quest for “small government” has been exposed for the lie that it is, and their quest to control the everyday activities of US citizens subject to their control goes on, whether in the name of national security, threat of disease, protection of the unborn, or whatever else they care to call it, IT STINKS and it is NOT what this country was meant to be!

About theHoundDawg

For many years as a lawyer, I saw much of the good and bad of society, and did what I could to right many wrongs. The lack of understanding of what is good and bad, right and wrong, just and unjust, as evidenced by such events as the election of King W as president, (who as such far surpassed the evil of richard nixon but not quite that of ronald reagan) lead me in a new direction, to spend my time trying to understand what is happening to our society, to try as best I can to spread my insights to others, and along the way to maybe even eke out a living through the internet.
