BIOHAZARD!!!


Get ready, the time is creeping ever near, the year of biohazardous humans is upon us.
Forget Gitmo, forget Immigratition Detention Centers, they are small stuff compared to be declared too hazardous, medically speaking, to be allowed out in the general population.

Just yesterday there was this:

By Will Dunham

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States has placed in isolation a man who may have exposed fellow passengers and crew on two May trans-Atlantic flights to a tuberculosis strain that is extremely hard to treat, officials said on Tuesday.

It was first time the U.S. government has issued such an isolation order since 1963, when it took action against a smallpox patient, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The man, a U.S. citizen from the state of Georgia, is suffering from extensive drug-resistant TB, known as XDR TB, which resists virtually all antibiotics, the CDC said. Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that usually attacks the lungs.


@ REUTERS

So this dumbass Bubba gets on a jet after being told not to, endangering everyone around him, and flys to Europe and travels all over then despite a second warning about not flying back, does so anyway.

Big stupid moron! This big stupid moron could very well affect the future treatment of anyone with an infectious disease. How? by being reported as a biohazard by the medical community then placed into medical custody. Why? Because Bubba set an example by being a dumbass.

Why is it the dumbass Bubbas screw up and the rest of us end up paying for their utter stupidity?

How long will it be before we are "suspected of having an infectious disease" and we find ourselves locked in a hospital ward?

The Neo-Fascists need reasons to put people away, Bubba just gave them one.

PNAC=World Bank

WASHINGTON -- Robert Zoellick, a nimble negotiator who has crisscrossed the globe as President Bush's trade chief and as the country's number two diplomat, is the White House's choice to be the next World Bank president.

Bush will announce the decision today, according to a senior administration official.

Zoellick, 53, a seasoned veteran of politics both inside the Beltway and on the world stage, has a knack for mastering intricate subject matter and translating it into policies. He is known for pulling facts and figures off the top of his head.

He would succeed Paul Wolfowitz, who is stepping down June 30 after a bank panel found that he broke bank rules when he arranged a hefty compensation package in 2005 for his girlfriend, Shaha Riza, a bank employee.

The controversy led to calls from Europeans, the bank's staff, aid groups, and others for Wolfowitz to resign from the poverty-fighting institution. Bush's selection of Zoellick must be approved by the bank's 24-member board.

Another signatory to the PNAC doctrine to replace the last one, Wolfiewitless. Vast untapped reserves of neo-fascists in the PNAC'er vault should keep their little world domination plans in place.

Neo-, a prefix signaling a "New" form or a revival of an old one

Conservatism-, is a relativistic term used to describe political philosophies that favor traditional values, where "tradition" refers to religious, cultural, or nationally defined beliefs and customs. The term is derived from the Latin, conservāre, to conserve; "to keep, guard, observe". Since different cultures have different established values, conservatives in different cultures have different goals. Some conservatives seek to preserve the status quo, while others seek to return to the values of an earlier time, the status quo ante.

The next time someone refers to the PNAC'rs as Neo-Cons refer to the above definitions.

I prefer Neo-Fascists:

Fascism-, is an authoritarian political ideology (generally tied to a mass movement) that considers individual and other societal interests subordinate to the needs of the state, and seeks to forge a type of national unity, usually based on ethnic, cultural, or racial attributes. Various scholars attribute different characteristics to fascism, but the following elements are usually seen as its integral parts: nationalism, authoritarianism, militarism, corporatism, collectivism, totalitarianism, anti-communism, and opposition to economic and political liberalism.

Sound Conservative to you? Even "New" Conservative?

Nada, nope, not even close.

It is a "New Fascism" hence Neo-Fascist.

Hope that clarifies things.

Fascist is a scary term not often used to describe the current form of the leaders of the US.

Fascism is remembered as being Hitler-esque, or Mussolini-esque.

Consequently it is too scary of a term for the current populous, never mind the fact that it's the correct one.

The man with a rare TB strain was ordered by his doctor to not take a flight or be around people until the TB strain could be evaluated. This case is of a selfish person who cares little about his brothers and sisters in God.

Protecting the Earth

This article is a must read article.

Dr. Shiva spent many years studying and opposing free trade agreeemnts. “Free trade is meant only for a handful of businesses,” she said. “It does not promote freedom for people with small shops. Wal-mart requires the disappearance of all small shops. This so-called free trade will lead to the total control of society, nature, economics and politics, a new economic totalitarianism. Today we no longer have a state, but a corporate state. All decisions regarding agriculture around the world are now run by the [World Trade Organization]. Globalization has reduced all agriculture to three crops -- soy, corn, and potato, which creates disease. A billion people go hungry. Another billion get sick from these wrong foods. This crazy system leads to poverty. Gandhi urged us to work with the earth to produce for ourselves what we need and to non-cooperate with such injustices.”

We can learn a lot from Ghandi and others promoting diversity in farming.

The old idea of rotating crops to keep the soil viable for plant growth has merit.

Seed banks also have great merit in farming.

Justice Dept. Widens Firings Probe

Justice Department investigators have again widened their probe of the firing of nine U.S. attorneys to include an examination of hiring practices in additional parts of the sprawling agency, including the troubled civil rights division and programs for beginning lawyers, officials said today.
---
Justice officials had previously disclosed that the Fine and Jarrett investigation included scrutiny of hiring decisions made by Monica M. Goodling, a former Gonzales aide, who testified last week that she had "crossed the line" in considering political affiliation when hiring career prosecutors and immigration judges.

Today's letter indicates that new areas of inquiry include hiring practices in the civil rights division, where veteran lawyers have left in recent years after what they called heavy-handed tactics by political appointees, such as overruling the views of division experts on pivotal voting rights cases in Georgia and Texas.

You 'Firefox'ers' should read this and check into it.

A New Vector For Hackers -- Firefox Add-Ons

Makers of some of the most popular extensions, or "add-ons," for Mozilla's Firefox Web browser may have inadvertently introduced security holes that criminals could use to steal sensitive data from millions of users.
---
As a result, if an attacker were to hijack a public Wi-Fi hot spot at a coffeehouse or bookstore -- a fairly trivial attack given the myriad free, point-and-click hacking tools available today -- he could also intercept this update process and replace a Firefox add-on with a malicious one.

According to Chris Soghoian, the Indiana University doctoral candidate who discovered the weakness, the vulnerability exists for some of the most popular Firefox add-ons, including Google Toolbar, Google Browser Sync, Yahoo Toolbar, Del.icio.us, Facebook Toolbar, AOL Toolbar, Ask.com Toolbar, LinkedIn Browser Toolbar, Netcraft Anti-Phishing Toolbar, PhishTank SiteChecker and a number of others, mainly commercial extensions. Ironically, at least two of the toolbars listed here are designed to help protect users from new security threats.

The problem is especially dangerous with Google's toolbar. Firefox usually will alert users that new versions of installed add-ons are available and give users the option to decline or accept the updates. But Soghoian said Google's toolbar (which is bundled with Firefox) updates without any such prompts.
---
Soghoian has published the responses (or lack thereof) that he received from each of the above-named extension makers. Most have not fixed the problem on their end. Google said it planned to have the vulnerability corrected by today's date, but over the weekend the company asked Soghoian to delay publishing his findings for a few days more while the company worked on a solution. Soghoian declined that request, saying he didn't think it was appropriate for Google to ask for a delay after ignoring his e-mails for 30 days.

I skipped some and left out alot, so you guys better read the artcile at the link.

ABC News reports on a new NASA/Columbia University study (headed by Dr. James Hansen) which, in summary, re-iterates the points that Hansen has previously stated.

Time is running out, ladies and gentlemen!

Den,

What an insightful, cutting edge post. I mean it. The atmosphere is so tainted that it forces one to immediately jump to those questions. What other rights will they take away to keep the masses down?

As I read further....you're on fire, aren't you Den?

Alan, thanks for the post.

Dr. David,

I saw that study too. It is so depressing. To think, even if miracles upon miracles, that man could turn it around, and still loose....

DEN said...

Uh, Carey, should I smell something burning?

More like Smokin!

PPWWWFFFTTT! CNK! CNK! AAAAAAAAAH!

DEN said...

But seriously, there is a lot of stuff happening and nothing getting done.

I'm sick of hearing Neo-Con 'cause it is not correct.

Ask someone how they like fascism, then tell them they are looking at it going on right now?

They will not believe it, and that is not good. They need to be made aware.

Between Neo-Fascists and Global climate chamge, looks like party till ya "croak" time.

Tired, so very tired, ZZZZZZZZ
