    I am so sick of this. muslims are offended by life. they need to get over some things or move back to the country they came from

    Sick passenger at Birmingham, AL airport prompts hazmat response.
    The flight originated in Turkey flew into Chicago and then on to Birmingham. They don’t think he has ebola, but he threw up so they’re taking every precaution.

    I guess people that get air sick might want to reconsider any travel plans, LOL!

      Sure hope this Obola scare is over by spring, before it messes up our London holiday plans. We’ve learned to go nonstop, but this time we’re considering upgrading.

      • Somebody says:

        I don’t think it will mess with your plans to fly to the UK, but it’s possible it could mess with your plans to come home. The UK has absolutely no travel restrictions and the most flights out of the ebola hot zones. Just today or yesterday there was a suspected ebola patient that literally died in Gatwick airport right after getting off a flight.

        So if and that’s a really, really big if…….but if the US were to decide to enforce travel restrictions and the UK continues to not have any….then I’d assume people traveling to the US from the UK would get extra scrutiny. It doesn’t appear either country intends to enforce any kind of travel restrictions though so it most likely won’t have any impact on your travel plans.

          Thx. Will have to get closely tuned in to LHR and Gatwick news, I guess. Our friends there will keep us informed, too, but bless their hearts they have a different world view. 🙂

            I have no details about this and Google and Bing give nothing but I was told by a friend that group sharing on private airways is the new thing. Cannot afford a private jet go in with a bunch of dimocrats and damn the rest of the world.

          They would have to put travel restrictions on ships too, not just planes. So if a freighter docks in western Africa the crew would have to be prevented from going on shore anywhere else to stop Ebola. Because once the crew was let off the ship they would head out to find sex (paid or not) and pass on bodily fluids. Also ships have rats that would climb off at the first chance.

          “Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said in a news conference on Tuesday that “we know in rural areas of Africa, Ebola can infect mammals. In fact, that’s how it spreads, from probably bats to animals living in the forest, people hunting the animals.” Ebola has to date been found in many bush animals, including bush pigs, rodents, porcupines and forest-dwelling antelope”

          Look authorities have said that Ebola is mutating. There haven’t been that many human cases so it has to be living and mutating in some host it isn’t killing. If you want to keep Ebola out of the USA you have to prevent an animal reservoir from building up. We can’t allow rats and other rodents or dogs to spread the virus. How many people do you know who sleep with a pile of dogs? I know quite a few. Just stopping airplane passengers from west Africa might slow it down but it’s not going to stop Ebola.

          Meanwhile why don’t we send a few infected volunteers to join ISIS?

            From what I understand, Ebola mutates, but like the common cold, it doesn’t really do much different. Also like the common cold, a vaccine is potentially worthless. During flu season a vaccine protects the sick but a lot of people still get it. In Ebola season, a lot of people would get it and die and the vaccine would become ineffective every few months.

    this is big. how many kids did not get the vaccinations they needed to prevent childhood sickness

    I think all news has become so agenda driven. This could be the worst story I have ever heard. Watching local news they seemed to be over the top with the details. No warning to parents they just blurted out horrific details. You have to explain this stuff a kid. This ranks up there with Dahmer Hitler and Minnie Riperton. This kid has known an unfathomable he’ll. Salivating 3rd rate journalists going lady Gaga over a tragedy is perverse.

    On a funny note I am going camping with a bunch of parents. Everyone wants to quit smoking so we are heading off to the woods without a pack. Yep bunch of nicotine deprived adults chugging bourbon should be fun. We are going to Big Bear Lake in West Virginia. I spent my summers there as a kid My family has a bunch of lots all connected. My Aunt Sarah lives in a once US Steel owned two bedroom house no basement no attic. Really just a big shed it she has a three bedroom trailer in the woods that she can only use a few months a year. No plumbing you have to walk toilet paper in hand to the relief stations. West Virginia is beautiful. People don’t say squeal like a pig or talk about pretty mouths. You can buy a banjo and Mail Pouch chewing tobacco almost everywhere. Have you ever seen that stuff way gross big wad of spit soaked leaves. “I guess lighting a stick shoving in your mouth and inhaling burnt stuff is rather gross as well. TEN days with a bunch of parents might be fun. Showers are up the street and they stink.
    I just said if I could get away for a few days and not have a smoke I would be fine. Became epic . I envision something like A Fish Called Wanda coming out of this adventure.

    • That sounds awesome, actually. Your Kindle had a video camera app, right? LOL

      ROTFLMAO!! Almost choked on my peppermint with that one!

        Never tell needy people they are funny. Only feeds delusions. Just say behave or grow up. Seriously I am highly self entertained but when someone gives me credit I go all out Sally Field from the Academy Awards after Norma Rea. I might even skip.I try to keep myself in check but as the bestest teacher Dianne Simmons at Hunter College well reviewed author on Amazon told me as she beat me over the head with Beloved. You have to lay it all down. Sword and shield. Comedy is a defense mechanism. I did treasure Morrison but she know has that obola taint. Saw her at a Penn lecture on writing in a radicalized society. Lady was bad passed. Hazel Green John Wideman and a few others were on a panel. Penn lecture series so everyone in attendance was an academic or a publisher. One young woman stood up and said I go to NYU and my friends and I find you a disgrace that caters to elite white women at Smith. Tuition at NYU is no joke. Toni did not miss a beat . She went all kinds of sit down and shut up. Said she wants to reflect on experience but there is no singular black experience. I love Beloved it is a ghost story and at times a bit to Freudian for me but what does not have a flaw or two or seven. The Bluest Eye is I feel a bit more honest. Yet Beloved is a great book. You do not have to be black she is haunted and cannot deal not until a man touches her scars does she devolve/evolve. Orca Winfrey was dreadfully miscast by herself in the film. I would have used that woman who played Tina Turner in that bucolic twenty years ago. I think she was on American Horror Story Coven . Even hotter than bell Halle Barry would have been a better choice. She did a bang up job in Their Eyes Were Watching God. HURSTON was crucified for speaking her mind. She did not play buy the rules so she was ended. I had to face made up charges of child molestation. Nothing is worse.. My kid is healthy she is fit no markers for abuse. I said do whatever you need to do. They took my computer dumped out my dresser flipped my bed.THE 6 o’clock news has a story local about kids in hell. Dying raped but gay me got put through the ringer . They were going to do a vaginal exam. Ruins a kid. I would not let it happen I said I am guilty of everything. I am Pandora’s box lock me away and throw away the key but please do not hurt my baby. I WATCH local news it is a travesty so many broken kids. I had to pick brat and a friend up . I had to go to court then a bus and then I had too peeling so I ordered a beer but they had bar time and I did not drink the beer I was late for pup. I ran. Thoughts of random beheadings and small skulls rolling down the street raced through my head. Obala decimating a grade school. I was afraid. I THINK FEAR is all dims h ave. Scare us into submission.

    This is funny my neighbor is very old. Her daughter comes by but she talks to her like she is retarded. She puts her empty vodka bottles in my bin. She drinks Laird’s Vodka a 6.99 product from New Jersey. It is really bad of course I tried it.Not even the dignity to pick up a bottle my self. I saw it when I took out trash. NO pride I drank what she tried to hide under her hauls frau pretend garb into my trash. Have you ever watched an elderly woman try to hide Her empties in your trash. She didn’t just throw them in she attempted to bury them. I am only concerned because in her feeble stealth she is buying swill from Scobeyville New Jersey. Who names a town Scobeyville? Sounds like a sexually transmitted disease. I admit this was the first time I drank alcohol from the trash but it was so awful. I Cannot presume I might not one day rifle through trash looking for a buzz.I
