    Yes but will all those white bogans in their pick up trucks manage to put the budweiser (sorry now 'american' beer!) down long enough to get in the pick up truck and drive to the polling booth?

    Three words on republicans - Cruz, Carson and Trump. All total climate change denying, religious fundamentalist, racist weirdo nut jobs! Seriously America is this the best you can offer the world?

  • Congress abandoned the Capitol Thursday for an almost two-week break without addressing how to combat Zika, even as public health officials issue dire warnings about the spread of the mosquito-driven virus with summer approaching.

    Republican leaders insist a deal can be struck soon to provide the money federal health officials say is needed to develop a vaccine. They also downplayed the risk of waiting a little longer, arguing existing money is available for the initial steps needed to help contain the virus while lawmakers resolve the larger funding fight.

    “They can get to work on this problem, and there’s money in the pipeline that’s already going out the door right now,” House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) told reporters Thursday.

  • More than 100 leading scientists say the Rio Olympics should be moved or postponed over the Zika outbreak.
    The group says new findings about the virus make it "unethical" for the games to go ahead in an open letter to the World Health Organization.

  • Washington, D.C. — The Center for American Progress estimates that more than 2 million pregnant women in the United States are potentially at risk of Zika virus infection this summer and fall. In a new analysis using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, CAP estimates the number of pregnant women potentially at risk in states that are projected to have a moderate or high abundance of the Aedes species mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus.

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. must act more quickly to protect pregnant women from birth defect-causing Zika, a top health official said Thursday even as the House left town for its Memorial Day recess with no visible progress toward a congressional compromise on emergency funding to battle the virus.

    “In a public health emergency, speed is critical. A day, a week, a month can make all of the difference,” Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the National Press Club.

  • Angola has suffered 2,536 cases of yellow fever as of May 25, a one-third increase from 1098 cases in the previous report on April 19, the World Health Organization reported in a press release.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Yellow fever is spread by the same mosquito species responsible for transmitting the Zika virus throughout the Americas. However, no vaccine exists for Zika while yellow fever epidemics can be brought under control with widespread inoculations.

    The mosquito-borne Zika virus has been declared a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” by the World Health Organization.The Conversation
    The virus not only appears to severely harm unborn children but is also hurting the economies of many Latin American and Caribbean countries. The World Bank estimates Zika will cost the world US$3.5 billion in 2016.

    And that one bite says it all. This is because most people who get the Zika virus are asymptomatic, showing no outward sign they are sick. Only one in five people may show signs of an infection, including a fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis, according to the CDC.

    The CDC just released new maps to give us a better view of how far Zika-carrying mosquitoes could spread. They have also release the alarming information that 157 pregnant women within the U.S. states and Washington D.C. have tested positive for the virus. 122 pregnant women have tested positively in the US territories, such as Puerto Rico.

  • Pregnant women infected with the Zika virus during their first trimester face as high as a 13 percent chance that their fetus will develop a severe and rare brain defect, according to research published Wednesday.

    That condition, known as microcephaly, is characterized at birth by an abnormally small head and often incomplete brain development. Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health identified the sharply higher risk after analyzing data from one of the hardest hit areas in Brazil, the epicenter of the rapidly evolving Zika outbreak.

  • There are levels of hypocrisy that threaten to drag a scream from anyone paying the least bit of attention. Then there are levels of hypocrisy that threaten lives. Four months after President Obama requested funding to fight the looming threat of Zika, Republicans are working hard—not to address the crisis, but to milk it for any possible political advantage.

    "The feud on Capitol Hill over responding to the rapidly spreading Zika virus would seem to be largely a fight over how much money is needed to fight the mosquito-borne scourge.

    But lurking just beneath the surface are issues that have long stirred partisan mistrust, including Republicans’ fears about the use of taxpayer money for abortion and possible increased use of contraception, and Democratic worries about protecting the environment from potentially dangerous pesticides.

    Public health officials warn that the virus will not stop to check party affiliation — the mosquitoes that carry it bite Republicans and Democrats alike."

    No. Wrong. And David Herszenhorn at the New York Times, this mentions you by name because of Just How Wrong It Is. Dammit. This blatant example of “both sides do it,” when both sides are so not doing it, is going to cost lives. This is not a damn game, and it’s not time to play some silly “we must always find a reason to share the blame” show of journalistic spinelessness. Stop it. Just stop it.

    Researchers studying babies with a Zika virus-related birth defect say they have found previously unreported eye problems possibly linked to the virus that could result in severe visual impairment. In three Brazilian infants with microcephaly, the researchers observed retinal lesions, hemorrhaging and abnormal blood vessel development not noted before in relation to the virus. The findings are being published online today in Ophthalmology, journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

  • Dr. Thomas Frieden, the director of the CDC, told the New York Times yesterday, “This is no way to fight an epidemic. Three months is an eternity for control of an outbreak. There is a narrow window of opportunity here and it’s closing. Every day that passes makes it harder to stop Zika.”

    Under the current GOP plan, it may be “well into the summer, or even longer” before Congress approves an inadequate final bill to address the Zika virus.

    Yeah nice spin, now where are the WMD's america? Never mind huh, move on...

    Trump will save you all from those nasty politicians. I mean he's a straight talking guy who tells it like it is - even if its racist sexist divisive waffle. Trumps there for the everyday american right?

  • Donald Trump says it all the time: “We don’t win anymore.” If you got all your economic news from the presumed Republican nominee, you’d think U.S. businesses hadn’t added any new jobs or accomplished anything worthwhile since sometime in the Johnson administration. Americans nowadays, he keeps suggesting, are total losers.

    While Trump’s rhetoric denigrates the achievements of U.S. companies and their millions of employees, his specific proposals are worse. They reveal a vision of the good economy as static, uninnovative and controlled from the White House. President Trump’s America is, despite the rhetoric, an economy with no place for winners.
