The White House is urging the NY and NJ governors to repeal the mandatory Ebola quarantine order for all medical staff returning from W. Africa, after the quarantined nurse threatened to sue authorities for treating her “like a criminal.” Quoting an unnamed administration official, the New York Times reported that “top administration officials have been speaking with Mr. Cuomo daily and have also been in touch with Mr. Christie, trying to get them to rescind the order." New York, New Jersey and Illinois are the three US States that have introduced mandatory 3-week quarantines on everyone who could have had contact with the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea where the epidemic has killed nearly 5,000 people. The local authorities’ actions after the New York Ebola case were “uncoordinated, very hurried, an immediate reaction to the New York City case that doesn't comport with science,” said a senior administration official who spoke with the NY Times on the condition of anonymity.If you needed any more proof that the word "science" refers solely to pure national suicide, pure genocide, pure mass murder, absolute raw bloody evil multiplied by infinity, you've got it. Final final final final proof. Satan's media have grabbed onto the lawsuit by the alleged "nurse" Kraki Krakho**, using him/her as the standard Victim Hammer to break down the walls of common sense. He/she is being depicted as the Noble Virtuous Innocent Carrier of the Virus Of Colour, Unfairly Imprisoned by Evil White Fundy Halliburton Bushitler KKK Klansmen Koch Koch Koch. The only non-standard piece in this brutally predictable Passion Play is that Cuomo, normally a docile Satanite, is continuing to defend real science and real life against the genocidists. I figured he would jump out of the way after shoving Christie onto the subway tracks. = = = = = ** Apologies to real crackhos for the comparison. Real crackhos may sometimes infect their johns, but they don't ARROGANTLY SUE TO PROTECT THEIR "RIGHTS" TO INFECT OTHERS. In fact they often feel guilty about their drug-controlled behavior. I'd rather deal with a real whore than a ligitious leftist any old day.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
