"Ron Klain, will not calm fears" - Serious Freaking Understatement [SFU]

You can call him a partisan, but once the polling data comes out, I suspect that it will prove this observation as on point. He supports a proposed travel ban on West African countries that the administration opposes, saying some of its arguments are “absurd.”

Murphy also said the so-called Ebola czar that the president appointed to oversee the federal response, Ron Klain, will not calm fears.

“The American people are looking for knowledge and expertise,” he told Fox News. “He has none in these fields.”It is a tangential conversation whether we [are yet] to the point where folks should be personally afraid, but putting a PR Flak in charge of the national threat of a Level 4 Contagion sounds like something that Monty Python would do. Ah, just a moment, here we are, The Ministry of Silly Walks.

Send the National Guard to Fight - Stupid Government Ideas

Refining the level of incompetent miss-use of our military.

President Barack Obama issued an executive order on Thursday paving the way for the deployment of National Guard and Reserve forces to West Africa to help contain the Ebola outbreak there. Under themandate, the secretaries of defense and homeland security can order to active duty some members of the Selected Reserve and the Individual Ready Reserve mobilization. To which, Americans are responding with:

‘OH HELL NO!’ OUTRAGE MEETS OBAMA PLAN TO SEND NATL. GUARD TO LIBERIA TO FIGHT EBOLA This really does sound like something out of  SNL parody skit; send people trained and to protect their own communities to 'fight' a Level 4 Pathogen in Africa.

It takes Women 10 years to train a male

H/T to Dalrock for making me aware.

Being a recovering engineer, I can appreciate the value in metrics, so we have Team Obama with a self-provided benchmark of 10 years to train a male.

The US Military does it in 10 weeks.

It seems that Michelle and B should stick to things that they have greater competency in performing.

"Airstrikes and International Outrage" - more SMI

To illustrate the stupidity, let's play multiple choice.

From CNN :

"Despite airstrikes and international outrage against ISIS militants, the terror group is overrunning Iraqi forces and slowly marching on"

Chose which of the following BEST stops the ISIS militants:

A> airstrikes and international outrage

B> airstrikes and media disapproval

C> airstrikes and BS from politicians

D> airstrikes and direct contact from Task Force @ss-Kicker
