Who Is Buying One Million Ebola Hazmat Suits ???

The company which manufacturers the fancy full hazmat suits for EVD reports that they have orders for 1,000,000 of the suits and that orders are growing exponentially:

If we have nothing to worry about, why are our government and hospitals so scared?

Why are they leaving us relatively unprotected, while they buy protective gear for themselves?

This whole thing really sucks.

Globalization = Permanent Instability

Globalization continually creates imbalances that fuel a perpetual instability that gradually impoverishes every sector other than global capital.

Globalization has two guaranteed consequences: permanent instability and endless boom-and-bust cycles. As noted in Forget "Free Trade"--Focus on Capital Flows, the key engine of globalization is mobile capital: capital that can borrow money for next to nothing in one nation and then move that capital to other nations where yields are higher and opportunities for exploitation riper.

This mobility of capital is an enormous benefit to the owners of the capital, but it creates extraordinary instability for those who are not as mobile. When mobile capital encounters anything that reduces profits--higher taxes and rising labor costs, competition or restrictive regulations--it closes factories and fires its workers in that locale and shifts to another locale with greater opportunities for high returns.

The workers left behind have limited means to replace the lost wages, and the local government often has few resources to repair any damage left by the exploitation of resources. The advantage of mobility is reserved for capital, and to the relatively limited cohort of workers who can immigrate to other nations to find work.

Until, of course, everywhere looks the same (i.e., equally impoverished and obsequious to capital's demands). Then there will be no competitive advantages left, just endless rows of identical strip malls with rotting cardboard boxes out back to house the temp workers.

A Litany Of Lies

Why Is President So Clueless On Ebola ???

Does it not seem like there is a huge disconnect between Obama ad-Dajjal and his "experts" and the rest of the country about the Ebola epidemic:

"We can't hermetically seal ourselves off," he declared.

Dude, we're not asking to "hermetically seal ourselves off". We want a travel ban on people originating in the epidemic zone and a 21 day quarantine for anyone coming here from there.

That would be a burden on no one expect our pea brain President and the whiny health professionals who really don't give a damn about our safety.

Who Benefitted The Most From QE3 ???

You guessed it - foreign banks:

Of course, the Federal Reserve System is not an agency of the US government, but just like Obama ad-Dajjal much of what they have done recently benefits mainly foreigners.

And we're not supposed to mind?

Did US Nuke Syria ???

This report suggests that the US has used some sort of novel weapons in Syria:

Similar claims that Israel has nuked Syria have been made before:

I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the claims made in these reports, but they do not seem unreasonable. Both the US and Israel have been developing new weapon types (including nuclear), and why would they develop something they could or would not use?

Official Ebola Story Doesn't Smell Right

Here is an essay by former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury Paul Craig Roberts which makes several of the same observations I have made about Ebola virus disease and the bizarre US response to it:

It's well worth your time, and be sure to check out the many references to which he provides links.
