A really special kind of stupid

A 40-year-old man stole a $23 cell phone from a patient in an isolation ward in Uganda two weeks ago. He now has the Ebola virus that had hospitalized the phone’s owner.

Symptoms inclue rash, diarrhea, vomiting, bleeding and death. You really gotta wonder about a guy who had access to an isolation ward being THAT DUMB, KWIM? This is what these people have to wear to go in those places!

THE CONVENTION GRUDGE-MONDAY EDITION

Posted by Pistol Pete

Not much happening today.The RNC preemptively cancelled todays schedule ahead of Isaac,which veered west toward Louisiana.Democrats are savoring the chance to dredge up the Katrina-Bush-bashing days of old.It matters little that W will not be at the convention and wants nothing more to do with politics.They prefer bullying someone who won’t fight back.Biden cancels crashing the convention and instead went to a meeting with big dem donors and proceeded to insult them by being 2 hours late.A couple hundred protesters have shown up,the rain probably being their first shower since they reached puberty.I fully expect Tingles Matthews to smoke some ‘bath salt’ drugs and try to eat Mika’s face.

I’m guessing Malia and Sasha Obama won’t have any more trouble getting in to the convention than they did attending the White House Easter Egg Rolls that were barred to every other private school kid in D.C.

September 30, 2009 – Obama’s Work Ethic By Ed Lasky

http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/09/obamas_work_ethic.html

“Barack Obama has displayed a disturbing pattern of work ethics: shirking work; claiming success when he was not entitled to do so; hiding his failures; and claiming the work of others as his own — when it was successful.”

March 2, 2011 – Obama’s ‘Where’s Waldo?’ Presidency By Ruth Marcus

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/03/01/AR2011030105489.html

“For a man who won office talking about change we can believe in, Barack Obama can be a strangely passive president. There are a startling number of occasions in which the president has been missing in action – unwilling, reluctant or late to weigh in on the issue of the moment.”

August 24, 2012 – Obama’s Work Ethic Criticized Again By Ed Lasky

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/08/obamas_work_ethic_criticized_again.html

“He blows off paying tribute to our veterans, avoids meetings with world leaders whom he has personal piques with (Great Britain’s Gordon Brown, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu), and ignores the work done by the Simpson-Bowles Deficit Commission, his Jobs Council, meetings with Congressional leaders — even those of his own party. The list goes on and on.”

Drawing a line in the sand

As head of the Archdiocese of New York and president of the Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Dolan is the biggest honcho in the American branch of the Roman Catholic Church. A while ago, he agreed to deliver the prime-time benediction at the Republican convention in Tampa next week. Since he didn’t want to appear partisan, he told the Dems he would be happy and grateful to deliver a prayer at their convention in Charlotte.

They haven’t called. I doubt Dolan is holding his breath! LOL

The Democrats have announced that a “high ranking” Catholic (to be named later) is going to offer a benediction in Charlotte, but it’s not likely to be the guy heading up the Catholic fight against the Obama Administration’s war on religious freedom. Likely, the “prayer” (such as it is) will be led by one of the bishops who still support the left-wing.

Democrats are really drawing a line in the sand these days!

Catholics have been voting Democrats ever since Irish and Italian Catholics made up the bulk of the unwashed, uneducated, immigrant groups the early 20th c. establishment GOP couldn’t like.

After we got our first and so-far only Catholic president, the Democrat Martyred Saint of Camelot, John F. Kennedy, the American Catholic commitment to voting D got even stronger.

However, since Roe v. Wade, the Democratic Party has increasingly chucked Pro-Lifers under the bus. You’d think this might be a problem for Catholics and it has been for about half of us. But old prejudices die hard.

When I turned 18, I never once considered registering Republican. I worked on Carter’s campaign during my first presidential season as a voter; until McCain, it was the only campaign I volunteered for.

But my revulsion for murdering helpless infants proved to be a lot stronger than my Catholic Democrat indoctrination. (It probably helped that I was only 9 when JFK was assassinated.) Anyway, I crossed over to the Right to Life Party and stayed there for decades, voting that line if I could, or going with the most Pro-Life candidate running.

When the Right to Life Party folded, they sent me a letter encouraging me to register Republican. When I read that, I experienced a visceral and incredibly negative gut reaction. It was like they’d told me to eat dog poop or something. It both shocked and shamed me to discover that I had any anti-Republican prejudice in me, much less one of such potency!

So, I held my nose, changed my registration to R and since then have been working on my attitude by learning more about the history of the two major parties. What a shocker to discover it was Democrats who founded the KKK and Republicans who pushed civil rights legislation!

Until very recently, the Catholic “social justice” crowd has held sway with about half of the American Catholic voters. In my experience, these are mostly the folks who think Jesus was a Liberal and therefore whatever Democrats do is What Jesus Would Do. It’s especially prevalent among those who live and work in areas where being Pro-Life equates with being a Right-Wing Religious Nut. (Like where I was born and still live.)

We knew, back in 2008, that Barack Obama was so overtly Pro-Abortion that he deep-sixed Illinois legislation that would have provided medical and comfort care to abortion survivors. IMHO, it takes a really cold, heartless bastard to insist helpless, naked babies be left alone to die. We KNEW this about him and we TOLD our fellow Catholics about it.

When Dearest challenged our pastor on this issue, she handed him a 3-page article that basically boiled down to “It’s okay to ignore the unborn in the name of voting Democrat, because Democrats are the good people who support social justice or something.” Seriously. Dearest and I both read it carefully. There was not a word of Scripture or Catholic teaching in it anywhere, just lots of Democrat Talking Points and muddy logic.

It was crap, but it worked. Check out the Catholic vote for the past 3 presidential elections:

It has taken the Obama Democrats actually throwing Catholic sensibilities TOTALLY under the bus to wake half of these twits up. And Cardinal Dolan, God bless him, is leading the charge away from Democrat Talking Points and back toward the Gospel as Jesus Christ actually preached it.

In a recent poll of 900 self-identified Catholic registered voters, only 27% said they support Obama. With over 77 million Catholics in the United States, a drop from 54% to 27% will be devastating to Obama’s totals. Hee hee!
