Ebola You Say?? Impossible! The CDC said We were Safe Forever!

So it's probably about time...

We've had one or twenty discussions here at Deth H.Q. with regards to the current outbreak of Ebola. Now, as you can tell from the posting of late, we've been a mighty busy, the lions-share of our absenteeism being family life and battening down the hatches for winter.

In the interest of saving time, we will get about this business in a Q&A style format...


Q: Is Ebola going to go "Pandemic" and kill everybody?

A: Short answer: We doubt it, and would not wager a plug nickle on that outcome.

Long answer: Ebola's method of transmission is not the greatest as far as diseases go. Close range aerosol, various bodily "drippings," contaminated surfaces and sexual contact seem to the primary vectors. Which certainly makes it worse than the CDC and other "reasonable authority figures" are saying, but probably not as bad as the Spanish Flu - which did in about a quarter of humanity.


Q: The Government is fucking everything up!!! Why!?!

A: We have three options for this, none good. We do however need to remind our readers of the following:

Since a quarter of the people in this nation happily vote for this shit, going along with it like a herd of gibbering, clapping, retard harp-seals, and the rest of the nation refuses to start lynching the bastards responsible, we are getting exactly the sort of governance we deserve. Our action and our inaction condones everything that's happening right now. To be blunt, we have it coming.

We tolerated drool-cup-wearing nimrods in our government, and since we didn't kill them, their stupidity and petty disdain for our well-being will now slay a number of us. Remember that fact if you're one of "the lucky ones" who gets to watch their child wither like a rotten fruit over the next several months.

Ok then... now we can kick the soap-box aside and answer your question.

- Option 1: The federal government is by-and-large a make-work program for the terminally unemployable. Their middle-management is composed of these same blithering idiots - the ones who floated to the top of the toilet bowl like lumps of shit. To expect the fat cunt at the DMV to solve a problem of this magnitude is ridiculous on it's face. Failure is the ONLY outcome when dealing with the group-home rejects that infest every strata of our Federal Government.

- Option 2: This sure is a nice big fat crisis! Why would you want to let that go to waist? Don't worry, the government can now suddenly make everything better! It will swoop in with their host of...


...and rescue us all from the evil Ebola!!!! It will only cost us serfs some more of our freedoms and treasure! Just imagine the new legion of federally, (and extra-constitutionally!) empowered minions that can be hired on the public dime - to lord over us like insufferable little nannies! Thousands of pages of new regulations, fees and taxes, oh my! (It's like the horrible love-child of Raum Emanuel and Valerie Jarrett). And boy... this "crisis" sure is keeping the news cycle off the COLLAPSING ECONOMY and FAILING STOCK MARKET right before an ELECTION!

- Option 3: (Quick's First Law - Never assume malfeasance and stupidity are mutually exclusive.) Why cherry-pick? Our government is malicious AND incompetent beyond belief. After all... what's better than opportunistic jackals or nattering shitheads wrecking everything they handle? A COMBO PACK! Why focus when you can multitask... these talented idiot savants can simultaneously chew gum AND jump rope all the way to oblivion.


Q: If Ebola is not the "big concern" what is?

A: The true danger is panic. If the big burly men, intelligent women and skilled technicians that keep our society running start saying "FUCK THIS SHIT, WE'RE OUT!" we will have a problem on our hands orders of magnitudes worse than Ebola.

A collapsing infrastructure, caused by the middle class workers bugging out, will do more damage, kill more people, and upend the tattered remains of our economy faster than Ebola going "full Black Death." Everything is logistics. That's what truly matters. The freight haulers stop delivering? Your grocery store is empty. The engineers stay home? Hope you don't need to shit, eat, or turn the lights on. Suppose the front-line health care workers decide they've been tossed under the bus too often... well... your kid's "small infection" has just became a death sentence - and ol'Granny is fucked when she strokes out this time.

We'll also beat the dead horse - again - and mention that our malicious, child-like federal (feral?) government will have it's eyes ALL OVER this catastrophe - as an opportunity to deflect blame from everything they've spoiled in the last century... and an excuse to Hoover-up more of our precious civil liberties.


Q: Why is King Barry Hussein Obama sending our troops to Africa?

A: President Drone-Kill has never liked the armed forces. When you look at his ideology and his upbringing, hes was raised to, and always considered them to be, the face or American imperialism abroad. He does not like to use them directly, he does not care for the generals, he loathes the enlisted men who vote against him en-mass, and he's just petty enough to enjoy getting his jabs at them whenever he can. In turn, the military hates him back, especially the actual troops, most of whom come from the bitter, gun-clinging, God-fearing families Juggears loathes the most.

One feeds the other in a grand loop. A west point graduation class sleeps during Oboala's speech, President Peace-Prize salutes with a starbucks. Tit for tat.

Also, the naked emperor really wants to be loved abroad. He's an extraordinarily narcissistic man. (Not an uncommon trait for those who aspire to the Oval Office). He wants a "legacy" for his presidential library. Why... he could... be... the man who saved Africa! And hey, President DowngrAAAde can get in a jab at all those impudent little bastards who refused to clap for his speech at Annapolis! It's a two-fer!

Pretend your entire government is run by very petty, vain, mildly brain-damaged fifth grade girls. (This is not a sexist comment saying that fifth-grade girls are "dumb" - it's a sexist comment saying that there is nothing more spiteful and mean-spirited than fifth-grade girls). Using that prism, suddenly everything happening makes so much more sense.


Q: What should we as a individuals/families be doing about Ebola?

A: Well, this titanic drama - and we can say with certitude that it's a stage show, milked and ramped for maximum impact - is largely out of our control. (Incidentally, it's also out of the producers control, they either don't realize it, or flat out don't give a shit).

Presented below are the meanderings and brain-drippings, birthed from our collective pow-wow:

1: Quarantine the exposed in their homes until proven clean.
2: Be aware of your surroundings, avoid unnecessary travel till this blows over.
3: Be ready to shelter in place - have food and water on hand for three to six months.
4: Have the cash on hand to cover three to six months of bills.
5: Alternate communication methods should phone/internet/cell suffer disruption.
6: Acquire a means of reliable self defense for you and your family.
7: As Ol'Remus suggests - avoid crowds.
8: Have several open emergency lines of credit, or alternate forms of currency/barter.
9: Be careful who you trust. Everyone has an agenda. Ebola is a perfect vehicle.
10: Do NOT assume that the engineers, truckers, doctors, instructors, plumbers, IT professionals and other workers who keep our infrastructure running are going to show up to work if a panic starts.


Incidentally, right now is NOT the time you should be preparing and scrambling to get this shit done. Some of these things are simply not possible at the spur of the moment. Who among us can run to the bank, withdraw twenty large, or load up on 360,000 calories of food, (times "X" family members)? Not many we'd wager.

Fortunately, many of our followers heeded the pans we've clanged for six years running, and already have much - if not more - of this already in place. For those folks? Now's a good time to top off - just in case. Nobody rational is in full-bore panic mode, making Aldi, Dollar General and Walmart a good deal more hospitable right now.

As always, when managing your larder, no fancy-schmancy freeze-dried shit, or prepackaged "Survival Food." It's expensive and generally tastes like unwashed badger-ass. (Ahem... Not that we'd know from personal experience... but we've heard... stories...) You stock what you eat normally. Just more of it. If this shit all blows over without a problem, you saved money on a commodity your family will use. (Through bulk buying and purchasing a necessary product in advance of our always inflating currency).

If this goes pear-shaped, well, it's easier to cope with a crisis when you have food, water, and cash reserves to call on. If this is nothing more than the latest media-hype fest, you're out nothing.
