Some very creepy and frightening Ebola news is making the rounds today.. while not to sound like an alarmist, these headlines would appear to be something right from the pages of THE STAND. Captain Tripps still does not exist on US soil (besides the patients purposely brought here to be monitored) but in Africa, it would appear the end times are upon them.. A sampling of the headlines bringing the chills to my arms as I read them as follows:
This from a government spokesman in Guinea: Ebola health workers dead.. eight bodies had been found, including those of three journalists. He said they had been recovered from the septic tank of a primary school in the village, adding that the victims had been “killed in cold blood by the villagers.” Things are in freefall in the areas hit by this disease..
These headlines are scary to their core.
Remember a few days ago, the news broke that cell phone ‘interceptors’ were being found all over the country? Immediately, Americans angrily started blogging and Tweeting that it was another example of big brother watching them, and the spy grid being effective and secret.. But delve a little deeper.. and think: What if this is not ‘big brother’ but instead a brother from another mother? Perhaps another state.. country.. ? Or what about it being ISIS-types.. or maybe even a Mexican cartel? News today makes me wonder more: Interceptors have been found near the White House And the Senate. This is beginning to make me think: Either the spy agencies are busy watching our own leaders a-la-Nixon.. or another foreign entity is behind the nationwide invasion of privacy..
And either way it’s troubling.
This is food for thought–and a bad meal if you digest it: 1 in 4 Americans don’t have a clue that the earth orbits the sun.
But should it be any surprise that 25% of Americans don’t know very basic science? After all, they are watching fake documentaries on the Discovery Channel about mega sharks and killer Yetis..
People are an on edge in parts of Pennsylvania.. my home state has been desperately searching for the cop killer who has been called an expert marksman.. The locals and students who inhabit the area being searched are on edge.. The FBI has joined the hunt for Eric Frein and he has been added to a most wanted list..
There is something very emotional for me when I watch funerals for men and women killed in combat or protecting people, such as police officers. There is a certain degree of pageantry that comes with it.. In this case, two young children are suffering the loss of their dad.. It can’t get more raw and emotional than that..
This is how ISIS is spreading: Video games. The kids aren’t alright, no matter the nation. Militants hooking youngsters with ‘Jihad video game’ trailer.. The game is styled after GRAND THEFT AUTO and advertises the Jihadi life to the young who play it.. and for those who don’t think GRAND THEFT AUTO led to some societal problems, look no further than the mind control IS is attempting with this new game..
But it’s not just games. The apocalyptic magazine the Islamic State uses to recruit and radicalise foreigners..
The food fight: Monsanto is wooing mommy bloggers to its side..
This is a real headline: Baker in court for head-butting £27,000 sausage roll machine when it stopped working properly. No, really, it is..
Read this blog report about a visit to the area from 2013.. It is a must read.
The Bloomsburg Fair begins this week.. it’s an amazing place to go if you’re in the Eastern part of Pennsylvania. But if you’re a fan of ZZ Top or Duck Dynasty *(and there’s lots of those in Pennsyltucky) then this may not be the fair for you, with cancellations from both entities.
