  • Ebola spreads through coughing and sneezing like influenza, which experts agree is spread “mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk,” according to documents by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    A new CDC flyer describing the “droplet spread” of Ebola, which “happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person,” is nearly identical to the CDC’s description of influenza which states “most experts think that flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk.”

    “Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person,” the CDC Ebola flyer states, which was released on Monday. “Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another. A person might also get infected by touching a surface or object that has germs on it and then touching their mouth or nose.”

    So, in summary, the droplet spread of Ebola is identical to that of influenza, according to the CDC, which also released new guidelines on Monday stating that people are at risk for contracting Ebola if they are “in the same room for a brief period of time” with an Ebola patient.

    Can someone inform President DumbBama that you CAN contract EBOLA on a bus and a plane?

  • In a stunning turnaround, likely voters in the so-called millennial generation prefer a Republican-led Congress after next week's elections, and young Hispanics are turning sharply against President Obama and th Democrat Party for the GOP.

    A new national poll of 18-to-29-year-olds by Harvard's Institute of Politics shows that young Americans are leaving the new Democratic coalition that twice elected Obama for the GOP.

    ■Millennials who told the IOP they will "definitely be voting" Tuesday favored Republicans over Democrats, 53 percent to 46 percent.

    To paraphrase "Uncle Joe" Stalin: "I do not care what temperature readings the satellites produce ... I care what numbers are produced by the scientists who receive that data."

  • But Colonel Joe "Buffoon" Biden says: We Need To ‘Stop The March Of The Tea Party Now’

    “If we don’t stop the march of the Tea Party now, those majority Republicans in the House and Senate who know better are never going to have the courage to stand up and vote the right way,” he said.

    It's also interesting he states those MAJORITY Republicans in the House and Senate....the colonel throwing in the towel already? Typical lib on the battlefield...if you can actually get them out there.
