Ebola In America: The Confirmed Case In Dallas, Texas Could Change Everything

Ebola In America: The Confirmed Case In Dallas, Texas Could Change Everything

This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at The Economic Collapse

The day that many of us hoped would never arrive is here.  Ebola has come to America.  Air travel between the United States and the countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone should have been totally shut down except for absolutely essential personnel but it wasn’t.  And now our nation may end up paying a great price as a result.  On Tuesday, the CDC announced that there is a confirmed case of Ebola in Dallas, Texas.  We know that this individual is a male and that he traveled by air from Liberia to Texas on September 19th.  At that time, he was not exhibiting any symptoms.  It is being reported that he started developing symptoms on September 24th and that he sought out treatment two days later.  Incredibly, he was turned away and sent home.  Then on September 28th he went to a hospital again and this time he was admitted for treatment.  That means that he could have potentially been spreading Ebola to others for at least four full days before finally getting treated at a hospital.  Now he is in intensive care at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.  The CDC says that “there is no doubt that we will stop it here” and is promising that “it will not spread widely in this country”.  The CDC better be right on both counts.

At this point, the CDC is admitting that it is not known if others have been infected by this individual.  The CDC also says that it is tracking down everyone that he has been in contact with.  But over four days in a major U.S. city, you can be “in contact” with a whole lot of people.  And what about all of the people that those people were in contact with?

If I was in charge of this crisis, I would admit that we don’t know the full scope of the problem yet but that we are dealing with it the best that we can.

Instead, the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is taking an entirely different approach.  Dr. Thomas Frieden insists that we have absolutely nothing to worry about

“I have no doubt that we will control this case of Ebola, so that it does not spread widely in this country. It is certainly possible that someone who has had contact with this patient could develop Ebola. But there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here.”

Frieden better be right about that.

Other “experts” are being even more dogmatic

“There is no cause for concern,” says Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine and professor at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. “The Ebola virus is not easily transmitted from person to person, and we have an outstanding infrastructure in place both to contain the virus and trace contacts. There will not be an Ebola epidemic in the United States.”

I have no idea how they can say these things when the outbreak over in Africa is completely and totally out of control.  Despite extreme precautions, hundreds of health workers have gotten the virus, and so far global health officials have not even been able to slow down the exponential growth of the Ebola pandemic in West Africa.

And our health officials should not be so dogmatic about how this virus spreads either.

In a previous article, I discussed a study that was conducted back in 2012 that demonstrated that Ebola could be transmitted through the air between pigs and monkeys that did not have physical contact with one another

When news broke that the Ebola virus had resurfaced in Uganda, investigators in Canada were making headlines of their own with research indicating the deadly virus may spread between species, through the air.

The team, comprised of researchers from the National Centre for Foreign Animal Disease, the University of Manitoba, and the Public Health Agency of Canada, observed transmission of Ebola from pigs to monkeys. They first inoculated a number of piglets with the Zaire strain of the Ebola virus. Ebola-Zaire is the deadliest strain, with mortality rates up to 90 percent. The piglets were then placed in a room with four cynomolgus macaques, a species of monkey commonly used in laboratories. The animals were separated by wire cages to prevent direct contact between the species.

Within a few days, the inoculated piglets showed clinical signs of infection indicative of Ebola infection. In pigs, Ebola generally causes respiratory illness and increased temperature. Nine days after infection, all piglets appeared to have recovered from the disease.

Within eight days of exposure, two of the four monkeys showed signs of Ebola infection. Four days later, the remaining two monkeys were sick too. It is possible that the first two monkeys infected the other two, but transmission between non-human primates has never before been observed in a lab setting.

There is much that we don’t understand about this disease.

I can understand the need to keep the public calm, but why don’t these officials just tell us the truth?

At the same time that they are telling us that there is no chance that there will be an Ebola epidemic in the United States, they are also sending out guidelines to funeral homes on how to deal with dead Ebola victims…

CBS46 News has confirmed the Centers for Disease Control has issued guidelines to U.S. funeral homes on how to handle the remains of Ebola patients. If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines?

The three-page list of recommendations include instructing funeral workers to wear protective equipment when dealing with the remains since Ebola can be transmitted in postmortem care. It also instructs to avoid autopsies and embalming.

Why are they doing this if there is “no chance” that the disease will spread widely?

Hopefully they isolated this Ebola patient in Dallas in time.

Hopefully he did not infect anyone else.

But we need to be honest about the situation that we are potentially facing.  So far, there have been more than 6,000 cases of Ebola in Africa and more than 3,000 of those have died.  Unfortunately, even WHO officials admit that those official numbers “great underestimate” the scope of this outbreak.  The number of official cases has been doubling approximately every three weeks, and the CDC says that under a “worst case scenario” we could be looking at 1.4 million cases by the end of January 2015.

Right now all of the treatment facilities in Liberia and Sierra Leone are completely full and more than 80 percent of Ebola patients have been turned away and sent home without being treated.  It is an absolute nightmare, and now it has come to America.

And as the virus continues to spread, it is inevitable that more carriers of the disease will get on airplanes headed for America.

Unfortunately for us, according to a recent Defense One article the screening done at airports actually does very little to stop the spread of Ebola…

The bad news is that thermal screenings of the international flying population at airports are not likely to yield much by way of improved safety.

Here’s why: fever can be a sign of a lot of different illnesses, not just Ebola. And thermal scanning proved to be a poor method of catching bird flu carriers in 2009 as well. So presenting with an elevated temperature at an airport checkpoint does not indicate clearly enough that the fevered person is carrying the deadly virus. More importantly, the incubation period for Ebola is two days. As many as 20 days can pass before symptoms show up. That means that an individual could be carrying the virus for two weeks or longer and not even know it, much less have it show up via thermal scan. So what good are these scanners?

When I first started writing about Ebola, a few people accused me of “spreading fear”.

Well, now that Ebola has arrived in the United States, perhaps they will take a second look at some of my recent articles…

-“The Pure Hell At The Heart Of The Ebola Pandemic In Africa Could Soon Be Coming To America

-“Computer Models Tell Us That This Ebola Pandemic Could Soon Kill Millions

-“16 Apocalyptic Quotes From Global Health Officials About This Horrific Ebola Epidemic

-“Ebola Among Health Workers: More Than 240 Sick, More Than 120 Dead

-“It Is Becoming Clear – We Are NOT Prepared For An Ebola Pandemic

Let us pray that this is just one isolated case and that there will not be a major outbreak in this nation.

Because if cases do start popping up around the country, fear will spread like wildfire and we could potentially be facing the greatest health crisis that any of us have ever seen.

One of the individuals that successfully survived this disease was Dr. Kent Brantly.  I think that the following quote from him really does a great job of summarizing what we are potentially facing…

“Many have used the analogy of a fire burning out of control to describe this unprecedented Ebola outbreak,” Brantly said. “Indeed it is a fire—it is a fire straight from the pit of hell. We cannot fool ourselves into thinking that the vast moat of the Atlantic Ocean will protect us from the flames of this fire. Instead, we must mobilize the resources … to keep entire nations from being reduced to ashes.”

A virus like this could change everything if it starts circulating widely.

Like I have said so many times before, let us hope for the best, but let us also prepare for the worst.

  1. IAM promises that there will be pestilience. Ezekiel 5:17. Matthew 24:7. He that rides on the pale horse is going to introduce himself to the world with it. We will face the greatest health crisis in America with this. This is a guarantee. It is a planned one though. The same tactic of war that the forefathers of this country used on the American Indian to try to snuff him out. This is the one tactics that going to used to snuff almost 90% of the world poplulation. King of Israel”Luke 23:28-31″

  2. Ebola in Dallas Texas,
    Poser in chief, anti-Middle class, anti-American, NWO Manchurian Candidate obummer, has opened our Nations BORDERS to allow America to be Destroyed by Enemies and DEADLY DISEASE.
    VIOLENT Drug cartels
    Mexican Criminals
    Mexican and South Americans with TB and other dangerous upper respiratory viruses.
    Diseased immigrant children placed in schools with our children.
    Diseased children placed in multiple states by the FEDS.
    THIS IS BIO WARFARE AGAINST AMERICANS BY A SITTING PRESIDENT.
    THE ACTIONS AND INACTIONS OF POSER IN CHIEF obummer IS BIO WARFARE AGAINST AMERICA.
    Wake Up People. This is INTENTIONAL Bio-WarFare against Americans by poser president obummer and NWO handlers.

    The feds will NOT close the Borders to Africa.
    The feds will NOT obey the Law and secure our Southern Border.

    Here are the actions of FEDS Against AMERICAN police officers:

  3. The other side of the coin says….there’s absolutely no profit to be made by introducing the vaccine (already on the shelf) or the research thereof, until a few thousand plus Americans drop dead first. It’s too expensive to launch a major vaccine campaign if only a handful die.

    They beta tested (this same scenario) with the H1N1 virus which didn’t kill but a few people. They pushed for everyone to line-up at your local Walgreens and WalMart for a vaccine (they weren’t sure would work anyway) and just happened to be a stock shelf flu vaccine!

    THEY watched as the movement against vaccines and checkpoint vaccines went viral overnight….

    NOW, we are faced with what could become the death of biblical proportion. And for the CDC to have had only enough of the experimental vaccine for the two doctors, flown to Atlanta and Omaha(?) in my estimation was total B.S.

    NOBODY is ever allowed to just walk out of an ambulance into a hospital without being on a gurney or in a wheel chair, especially after a spectacular air ambulance (propaganda) event! The hospital’s insurance carrier doesn’t allow it, if I’m not mistaken. So….what were they trying to convey to the world? That the U.S. can handle anything??

    The government and the elites, drinking scotch and smoking Cuban cigars in Basel Switzerland are not worried, therefore…we shouldn’t either.

    However….it might become the war that we did not expect, and/or the “mark of the beast” that many will have to wear for those that refuse the mandatory vaccine. If you are “marked” you will not be able to travel, buy or sell. How wonderful !! Any solutions???

  4. Let me add something reference the “mark of the beast.” I am implying in my last paragraph that THEY could use the “mark” as the indicator that one has not been vaccinated or has legal standing to not be vaccinated. Basically, a reverse psychology attempt to persuade a person to be vaccinated in-order to not be “marked.” I guess we could go a step further and say that possibly two different “marks” might be deployed and if you have neither…well, you know the rest of the story.

  5. I’am Not worried, I’am more worried about forced Vaccinations .. They could give us this Virus or anything that would kill us..I opt out !!!

  6. The plane “lost” over Malaysia was full of Microbiologist.
    My understanding is that there was a big conference in Australia that MANY
    on the “lost” flight were attending.

    Other passengers were from tech industry with expertise in brain chip implant technology.
    Maybe someone wanted that talent?
    Maybe someone wanted to STOP that talent?

    Quite convenient that worlds talent pool of Microbiologist wiped out.
    Just before Obola reaches US.
    Look online at the number of Geneticist and Microbiologist that are being killed.
    Who wants to stop the understanding of current issues?

    And president obola continues spreading illegal immigrant children with DISEASE into our children’s schools.
    The Feds transport these diseased people into our communities instead of isolating and curing them.
    The Feds ALLOW FLIGHTS from ebola plague areas.
    THIS IS BIO WARFARE AGAINST AMERICANS BY THE NWO controlled Amerika president.
    The Feds and president obola WANT this to spread as a pretext to their NWO EVIL.


    [Editor’s Note: How odd, W68 Bill — somebody going by a different name has posted almost the same post as yours here, only they posted it under a different article, where it was not on topic. I don’t know who the imposter is, but because his post was so close to yours, in so many ways, I thought I’d share it with you here so you can know that someone named “Lyle” is running around in the big ol’ world reading your mind. Here is what “Lyle” tried to post:

    Who is the real threat?

    Why are the Microbiologist being MURDERED?
    The missing plane in Malaysia was full of MicroBiologist attending conference in Australia.

    What US government entity wants to silence these scientist?
    Are the Feds afraid that these scientist have a cure or could find one to the obola plague that is being unleashed upon humanity.
    Could the scientist have stopped the INTENTIONAL Bio-Warfare that president obola has unleashed upon Americans?

    Why are DISEASED immigrant children being spread across America?
    Why are people from ebola hot spot countries still allowed to fly into USA?
    Why are US Troops being exposed to this TERRIBLE disease?
    This is BIO-WARFARE AGAINST Americans by the so called president?

    Check this out:

    And look up “Dead Microbiologist” on search engine.
    HUNDREDS dead. Why?

    Amazing, eh? Makes me think that the dude is downright psychic, or is reading your mind. Just thought you’d like to know.

  7. Not much of mystery about multi posting.
    Most people have first name, last name, handles given by others that they hate, and nick names.

    There is problem with posts crashing OK site visitors computer and comments being scrubbed/sanitized, without OK Admin knowledge. My brothers have agreed that it is OK site. I’m not only one who has noticed.

    Some people are determined to rattle the cage, stir the minds from sleep, inform, make their fellow man AWARE.
    Attempt to wake people up from football, sports, porn, TV, PROPAGANDA, etc.
    To start “brush fires of LIBERTY within the hearts of fellow colonist.”

    But we may not be as eloquent as Churchill.
    Something like, “We will fight by sea and ocean. We will defend our Island. We will Fight. We will fight on the beach.
    We will fight in the hills. We will fight in France. We will fight in our city. Fight in the neighborhoods. Street by street.
    We will NEVER Surrender.” –Churchill

    I butchered speech but it is from memory. Cal can straighten it out probably word for word perfect.

    We Americans are facing an ENEMY within our nation just as deadly and dangerous as Nazi’s Churchill faced in 1940.
    Our American Nation is controlled by TRAITORS to our American way of life. But we have no Churchill.
    NWO and collectivist are DESTROYING our country and World Peace. NWO is provoking WW3.

    Think of Hitler with modern technology and electronic control grid, license plate recognition, NSA snooping, cameras, facial recognition, rfid in tires, gps telemetry in cars, complete control of media. We are facing that and worse. We must come together as free men to STAND and Awaken our brothers in Liberty.

    Americans will NEVER SURRENDER.

  8. Our country is being Destroyed by our own bought off “leadership”. Traitors!!!
    Not a “conspiracy theory.” Absolutely Factual Reality.
    No one with Political, Law Enforcement, or Military Leaders, will ARREST these TREASONOUS TRAITORS.
    They all just go along with the propaganda and blindly follow the TRAITOR in Washington.

    It is difficult to know if a post is actually posted as this site, and ONLY the OK web site CRASHES my computer.

    [Editor’s Note: We have been running this site for over five years and your post here is the first time anyone has stated that our site crashed their computer. Regarding how you can know if a post got posted here or not, simply look at the page you posted your comment to and see if it’s there or not. If you don’t see it, then it was not posted. Why would a post not be posted here? Simple answers: 1) It’s spam; 2) It’s offensive; 3) It conveys error as fact; 4) It is a freaked-out dose of paranoia-on-steroids. Some of your sentences fit the profile of Number 4. Since it is known that you post under different names, and that you give bogus email addresses when you sign in to post, methinketh that the one who is suspect here is thee.]

    So if you want to make a deal out of multiple posts. If below happenings are not more important to readership.
    If a Traitor as commander in chief, dismantling military command structure of patriots.
    If an open border to criminals, terrorist, drug cartels, diseased foriegn nationals. A poser president that REFUSES
    to secure that border. President obola also, “Refuses to stop flights from Ebola infected nations.”
    All of our TRADITIONAL American constitutional rights are TRAMPLED upon by a LAWLESS poser in chief.
    If the INTENTIONAL provacation of WW3 with Russia by NWO banker controlled Amerikan president.

    Sir if those things don’t get you to ACT with URGENCY and Action.
    Then nothing will.

    [Editor’s Note: You would do well to calm yourself enough to compose proper sentences when posting with written words on the Internet. Your sentence construction needs a lot of work. You are obviously very agitated and nervous, even fearful. The word “paranoid” comes to mind. Do you want people to learn to see the problems which you see? If so, then I would recommend you get control over yourself, calm yourself, compose complete sentences, clarify and validate, give sources, and come across as a sane and well-balanced mentality. Your “tone” at present time is not conducive to anyone wanting to learn.]

    I will NOT post anything else.

    [Editor’s Note: Okay, so you are also a narcissist. Do you think the world cares whether you post here or not? How important are you?]

    My family will not stay around and wait until the Russia bombers actually FIRE from their currently being practise ICBM launch box.
    My Family will not stay around until the LAWLESS DHS start roundups into FEMA camps due to disease being ALLOWED
    into our country to justify Martial Law lock down. Or other FED manufactured False Flag “emergency”.

    [Editor’s Note: There is much concern that the General government is probing the population for a pretext to implement martial law. What is proven as historic fact now is the fact that our dearly beloved government will indeed create “false flag events” for purposes which serve the interest of expanding control over people and centralizing the power of government. That I can prove to anyone, with full documentation. But if I wrote that out for someone, I’d be careful to not come across as a paranoid narcissist, because as soon as I portray myself as a paranoid narcissist I lose my reader’s attention. (hint hint)]

    In 1939 Jews left Nazi Germany for Safety. Estimates are 1 in 27 left.
    MOST of those Jews that stayed DIED.
    Those Jews that stayed could NOT Believe, Accept, Comprehend, that the EVIL and DANGER was real.

    [Editor’s Note: I am not sure of the numbers, but I am sure that many Jews left Germany/Austria and thusly spared themselves. And you make a good point — those who stayed behind could not wake up to reality, could not see the evil, could not become conscious enough to exercise their basic senses and realize that the danger was real. I’m told by someone that the grounds at the incineration centers were well-kept and manicured, pleasant looking, and those death camps fit right in with civilized standards, so that the citizens who lived nearby were not alarmed. Maybe that’s true and maybe it’s not — it’s just what I have been told. But I fully agree with you about this. Americans are almost completely oblivious to the clear and present danger – and the evil – which confronts America today. A judgment will be harsh if it comes, and it appears that it is indeed on the way. My personal goal is to help at least one person wake up to the reality of a totalitarian military-police state and what that sort of governance means to each American if we cannot prevent it. I am not very optimistic, but if we could “each one teach one”, in no time flat we could save ourselves. I did say “if”.]

    I have put in my time defending our Constitution, Bill of Rights, American way of life.
    Those things I was willing to fight and die for. So was my wife. (Yes she has her combat ribbon.)
    Obviously Americans today have other priorities. They will not STAND.

    [Editor’s Note: Perhaps it would be better to live for this country instead of fighting and dying for it. You say people will not “stand”, yet you yourself will not stand, but instead you are now planning to leave. I have a theory. I think that when enough Americans wake up to the problem, all of us will stand and correct it as one vast people living in the spirit of America. And I’ve got another theory. I do not think that there is any place on earth left which could be a sanctuary. Our problem is globalization of governance, and the powers who are working on that want to control every square inch of planet earth. Costa Rica, South Sea islands, it matters not where one goes. The enemy of freedom is global. I do not think any one place exists outside their control, and if it does, it will not last much longer, certainly not long enough to make it worth one’s while to actually move there.]

    Military Leaders will NOT STAND. Politicians, LEO will not ARREST obummer and minion of TRAITORS.
    So me and mine will go. Just as my wife’s family ancestors FLED the Nazi terror.
    Those Jews that Fled LIVED.
    MOST of Those Jews that stayed DIED.

    My Grandfather liberated some of those camps in 1944-45

    [Editor’s Note: I salute your grandfather.]

    You decide what is right for your family.
    Prepper Fantasy is foolish and Unworkable in the face of Russian ICBM and Traitors ALLOWED at the helm of our Nation.

    [Editor’s Note: There are numerous other (and better) reasons to prep, than to think of prepping as a response to the threat of a nuclear holocaust. What if, for example, a solar emp hits our side of the planet, the grid goes down, transportation comes to a screeching halt, food is no longer coming into the cities and garbage is no longer being shipped out of the cities? There are many other scenarios which have validity as “possible”. Why not be prepared for such things, eh?]

  9. These words from above indictment:

    Like you said of my literary skills and sentence structure. “Needs improvement.” So I looked it up:
    Definition:
    paranoid |ˈparəˌnoid|
    adjective
    of, characterized by, or suffering from the mental condition of paranoia : paranoid schizophrenia.
    • unreasonably or obsessively anxious, suspicious, or mistrustful : you think I’m paranoid but I tell you there is something going on.
    noun
    a person who is paranoid.

    “Step right up. Step right up folks.
    Now new to OK. Step right up. Psych eval from internet.”

    You Must be very good, considering we have never met.
    Never had a beer together.
    Never shared the morning after, “surviving a night of absolute hell.” Far from the wire and absolutely surrounded by enemy.

    Guess that might be “paranoid” too? To believe surrounded by enemy in a hot zone?

    I had no idea the internet enabled psych trained professionals, such as yourself, far reaching expertise.
    You obviously have multiple advanced psych degrees from esteemed universities.
    I am far behind on the powers of technology. I’m a real dumb ass. Got me there.

    My Smart Ass BS aside. “Our Nation is in extreme DANGER from within. We are as the average Germans were in 1939. MANIACS are steering our America to INTENTIONAL DESTRUCTION.”

    “Paranoid” is word Often used by those wanting to Silence, and/or Discredit someones speech/observations.
    Sorry to disappoint.
    Not agitated. Not nervous.
    Not fearful.
    Been told I’m damn steady under fire. Scary steady. So I think I’m pretty “calm”.

    Actually Things don’t usually bother me until I get back home and several years after action.
    Then a smell, light, shadow, or situation makes me realize how sporty it was, years later.

    So your expert psych eval gets goose eggs. I’m calm by training and faith that I will ALWAYS make it home.

    BTW: I don’t think it is steady as much as FOCUS. No worries.

    But the sentence structure and literary expertise do likely need work. You are correct in that critique.
    But it does not matter. I’m out of here.

    My fellow Americans do not value liberty, freedom, justice, the constitution, enough to IMPEACH a destructive, Delusional, MANIAC. Yes that is my psych eval. No I don’t have advanced degrees. But I recognize INSANITY and TREASON.
    Maybe I’m wrong? Nope.

    Just because you call me “paranoid”, doesn’t change the fact that Traitors are INTENTIONALLY DESTROYING America.
    Keep your “change”. I’m not registering or buying it.

    Listen. Don’t listen. Your life. Your choice.
    I watched a wise guy walk into IED. Two people warned him to steer clear. He knew better.
    As I recall he called one trooper who warned him …”paranoid’. Right before he made himself into a big goo mess.
    Made a real mess he did. Lost that one. Wasn’t enough left of him to patch together. Took too long for evac.
    He didn’t listen. Had every opportunity to take long way around. But the warning was “paranoid.”

    Myself? Sitting right here with a cold beer.


    [Editor’s Note: Dude, I did not say you *are* paranoid, I merely said that your writing on this website’s comment sections comes across as “very agitated and nervous, even fearful.” Then I said that (your tone) causes me to think of the word, “paranoid”. I was not psychoanalyzing you, I was describing how your freaked-out wording came across to me and most likely to a hell of a lot of other readers here. You’re doing a bit better with this post.
    About me: I’m no Shrink. Just barely got out of high school. Started college in 1963, quit in 1965 and joined the Marines. Asked for Viet Nam, and got it. I was not LRRP or Force Recon, was not even 0311, although I had asked for 0311 when I joined (and the recruiter told me I would get it, but he lied.) I’ve been inside the wire and outside the wire, in calm and quiet and in hell’s own fire. Ain’t no hero, never wanted to be, but I came through, made it back to the world, made it home. Wasn’t anything I did, was just luck, pure freakin’ luck.

    So I can relate, Bro. I not only got a dose of PTSD – I also got a dose of Agent Orange to go with it. I don’t go to the goddam VA, don’t take anything from the goddam government, ain’t askin’ anyone to save my ass, and I see exactly the same damn thing you’re seein’. This country’s crashing, imploding, eating itself from within, and nobody is doing a damn thing to stop it. I’ve got tons of stacks of papers written on the subject, tons of research, resourcing, reviews and rants which back up everything you’re sayin’. And most folks couldn’t care less — ain’t got time or interest enough to read the proof, even if you offered it in writing.

    I was not evaluating your psyche — I was evaluating how your psyche chooses to express itself in words. The reason I offered my suggestions was just in case you wanted your concerns to be taken seriously by those reading here who do not know what you’re talking about. If you want to help educate the American people, it’s best to ease them into the understanding in small, incremental steps. Calling the idiot “obummer” is not the way to get into the receptive zones of most present-day American readers’ minds. Please understand that many people who are not members in Oath Keepers read and post here, and not all Oath Keepers members who read and post here understand fully how dire the situation is. I’m calling for calm, level-headed right-on factually-backed-up info delivered in as tasteful a way as possible for the benefit of those who do not know. As far as the choir goes, we all already know, but it’s more important that those who do not know get a chance to learn, and they won’t learn, won’t even read it, if we come across as wild-eyed freaked-out conspiracy theorists screaming that the sky is falling. That is what I was trying to get across to you. Delivery is everything, in written words as well as in 175 howitzers, right? Thanks for reading.
    Show up at the VFW in Eureka, Montana, and I’ll buy your beer. Meantime, I’ll settle for my single-malt scotch.
    Salute!
