Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 1:33:41 pm

Pew Poll: Ebola Worries Rising, Especially Among Republicans, but Most Trust Government to Deal With It

Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 12:46:35 pm
Image via Shutterstock After the non-stop fear-mongering by most of the media (but especially right wing media) about Ebola, it's not surprising that the latest Pew poll shows a rise in the general public's fear level.

Michael Savage Attacks Veterans With PTSD: "Stop Crying Like a Baby"

Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 10:08:56 am
SoundCloud Today's absolutely grotesque example of right wing hate speech comes from radio screamer Michael Savage (real name: Michael Weiner), who launched into a deranged rant against veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder because they aren't strong manly men like him. Remember when right wingers used to pretend to care about ...

Debunking Another Fear-Mongering Right Wing Myth About Ebola: The "42 Day Incubation Period"

Mon, Oct 20, 2014 at 11:04:50 am

The latest meme being circulated by right wingers and conspiracy theorists (two groups that have considerable overlap) is that Ebola actually has an incubation period of 42 days, not 21 as has been reported. SHOCK NEWS! SCIENTISTS ARE LYING ...

In Which I Rant About America's Totally Dysfunctional Gun Culture

Sun, Oct 19, 2014 at 6:05:23 pm
Video Via TPM: CNN Host Grills Cruz About Ebola and GOP Opposition to Surgeon General (VIDEO) Ted Cruz calling blocked Surgeon General nominee Dr. Vivek Murthy an "anti-gun activist" is incredibly dishonest.

Chuck C. Johnson Is Confused by the Concept of Traveling Nurses

Thu, Oct 16, 2014 at 5:30:22 pm
I'm guessing that CCJ's search for Amber Vinson's criminal record came up short, so he started looking into her licensing. And what he found confused and disturbed him. His top story right now: "Why Was #AmberJoyVinson a Nurse in Five States?" Despite her youth, the second Ebola patient, Amber Joy Vinson, ...

Thu, Oct 16, 2014 at 11:51:24 am
So today the right wing blogs are all spewing insults at Barbra Streisand (again), because she dared to criticize the anti-women agenda of the Republican Party -- but especially because she pointed out that the across-the-board budget cuts mandated by the GOP's sequestration have wreaked havoc on the National Institutes ...

'Clipboard Man' Seen Without Protective Gear Near Workers in Full Hazmat Suits Transporting Ebola Patient

Thu, Oct 16, 2014 at 9:28:25 am
There's probably not an issue here since 'clipboard man' kept his distance from the fully encased Ebola patient, and his time near the patient was short. However from an abundance of caution perspective -- that we should be following since we have two new cases, he probably should have been ...

Image via Shutterstock The head of the National Institutes of Health doesn't specifically call out the Republican Party in this statement, but I will; the anti-science, anti-research GOP is the main reason why America hasn't been able to do the basic scientific research necessary to be ready for diseases like Ebola.
