    Poor Gus, CNN just won’t cover the stories that he and his Master think deserve obsessive coverage …

      If this keeps up and the GOP takes the Senate, Gus will be in trouble and he knows it.

      No more Twitter… no more Virgin Moblie Obamaphones… and you know what happens then, Gus?

      That’s right, Gus… you’ll have to go to…WORK! 😆

    Hunter Biden son of block head VP Biden let go from U.S. Navy due to testing positive for cocaine.

    Just cause he is a butt part of the commie Democrats he is not charged for the drug use.

    But he is ok to be a poster on lgf’s blog and may even take over for the current drug addled operation.

      Since the “media” are “complicit”, “liars”, “fear-mongers”, “racists”, whatevers, let’s go with the libs “experts” the effin CDC:

      Can Ebola spread by coughing? By sneezing?
      Unlike respiratory illnesses like measles or chickenpox, which can be transmitted by virus particles that remain suspended in the air after an infected person coughs or sneezes, Ebola is transmitted by direct contact with body fluids of a person who has symptoms of Ebola disease. Although coughing and sneezing are not common symptoms of Ebola, if a symptomatic patient with Ebola coughs or sneezes on someone, and saliva or mucus come into contact with that person’s eyes, nose or mouth, these fluids may transmit the disease.

      http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/transmission/qas.html

      So the CDC thinks you can spread Ebola by sneezing or coughing too, you ridiculous tool.

    • trebob says:

  10. Arachne says:

    Do your research Douchenozzle. Babs is full of shit. BTW, Ebola has been around since the 70’s and before that. So why wasn’t NIH and CDC and anyone else working on viable vaccines or treatments? Democrats were in charge of Congress.

    The GOP did not cut the NIH’s budget. Or that of the CDC. And since they are SO concerned about Ebola, why didn’t they use the money they received in the pursuit of a vaccine and/or cure? Instead of funding studies of chimps flinging poo. Or why fat people don’t get dates.

  11. OLT's This Is An Illustration Of That says:

    Gus and Katrina. I take it that the garage has flooded.

  12. Because says:

    “GOP’s sequestration”

    … that Obama agreed to.

    4 Pinocchios.

    • Arachne says:

      Obama did not “agree” to it – the “sequestration” was Obama’s IDEA. And it was Obama who selected which of the non-DoD monies would be withheld.

  13. OLT's This Is An Illustration Of That says:

    It strikes me that Gus is overly-concerned about Katrina, given the passage of time. Maybe being “stranded” on an overpass due to (a) your own entitlement mentality (b) welfare state-encouraged poverty and ignorance (c) a corrupt mayor, (d) state-wide official corruption with a capital “D” that diverted Fed funds to crony capitalists (pre-Solyndra et. al.), and (e) a feckless Democrat governor seems like an upgrade to him.

    • Arachne says:

      Scratchy is taking marching orders from Itchy, who no doubt is getting them from MMFA, MSLSD and KKKos, and that is to resurrect the idea that this is less a failure than Katrina. However, when I challenge people on Twitter to advise just what Bush should have done differently, and why it wasn’t Blanco and Nagin’s fault primarily, they really have nothing to say.

      • OLT's So Much Bumf says:

        That’s the stupidest comparison I have ever heard.

      • Because says:

        Bush was supposed to stop global warming, like Gore would have done if he were elected.

        It does seem to be true that the planet has stopped warming since Obama was elected. Come to think of it, it stopped warming a little before Bush was elected.

        Never mind.

    1 I Stand With Big Sodomy! Oct 10, 2014 11:38:15pm 6

    I heard about this from a French friend. One thing people should know about the Muslims in France is that a lot of them agree with the ban on the head veil! He told me about a recent article where, I think it was over 60% agreed with the ban. I was a little surprised by that I think.
    I also read an article about a lot of pissed off French Muslims who are very angry about the extremists and they make sure they publicly denounce them. Maybe I will try to find that article again and post it here.

    Ok I found them here

    Chuck tweeted for Jim Hoft to stop “lying” that the NY Times said Wilson was beaten by Brown.

    From the NY Times article:

    “Officer Wilson told authorties that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.”

    I’m starting to think Chunkles has bad reading comprehension. 🙂

    • swamprat says:

      charles is referring to the “orbital socket fracture” Hoft illustrated with a stock photo off the net.

      However, even lgf can see that some of the Ferguson narrative is coming apart.
      Certainly not all, as a man was shot while fleeing.

      • Octopus says:

        “shot while fleeing.”

        Brown was not shot in the back. Not sure about the particulars, as there’s no video, but witnesses said he was coming back towards Wilson. So, not fleeing.

      • swamprat says:

        .
        The struggle in the police car with shots fired is a revelation. Haven’t heard that Brown was coming back, but that might explain the 3 second delay while Wilson determined if he needed to use the remaining bullets in the clip.

      • swamprat says:

        “Gentle Giant”…Uh, no.
        “Shot in the back”… Again, the facts differ from the narrative.
        “Disturbing delay in the firing sequence”…Not if you’re humanely waiting for compliance.
        “Shot for no reason”…Oddly, the struggle in the police car has been omitted.

        This neither explains nor absolves either side, yet it does shed some light.

  46. Juan Epstein says:

    More Americans have died from Ebola than from ISIS.

  47. ISpeakJive says:

    Yeah, Chunky is trying to perpetuate the meme that Brown was running for his life. (Backwards, I guess.)

    • swamprat says:

      You have an altercation with a law enforcement office that results with his gun discharging inside his car and you will most likely be running for your life if the officer is not incapacitated.

  51. Zeus Crankypants says:

    Things the CDC/NIH spent money rather than working on an Ebola vaccine…

    From The Daily Mail:

    1. $2.4 million to develop ‘origami’ condoms designed with Japanese folding paper in mind [Origami Condom’ creator Daniel Resnic is accused of spending NIH grant dollars on cosmetic surgery, a Playboy Mansion party and exotic trips, and using his friends as informal research subjects instead of holding a controlled human trial];

    2. $939,000 to find out that male fruit flies prefer to romance younger females because the girl-flies’ hormone levels drop over time;

    3. $325,000 to learn that marriages are happier when wives calm down more quickly during arguments with their husbands;

    4. $257,000 to make an online game as a companion to first lady Michelle Obama’s White House garden;

    5. $117,000 in taxpayers’ grant dollars to discover that most chimpanzees are right-handed;

    6. $700,000 to find out that most chimps are right-handed, and that those with the best communications skills are also the best poop-flingers;

    7. $592,000 for a NIH study concluding that chimps with the best poop-throwing skills are also the best communicators;

    8. $666,000 to determine whether watching sitcom reruns like ‘Seinfeld’ or re-watching old movies helps older people feel re-connected with pseudo-friends from their past;

    9. $181,000 to study how cocaine use ‘enhanced’ the sex drive of the Japanese quail;

    10. $548,000 to find out if 30-something partiers feel immature after they binge drink while people in their mid-20s don’t;

    11. $610,000 paid for a 120-nation survey to determine how satisfied people in different countries are with their lives;

    12. $1.1 million funded research into how athletes perceive their in-game surroundings, including one Purdue University study that discovered golfers can putt 10 per cent better if they imagine the hole is bigger;

    13. $832,000 went to learn if it was possible to get uncircumcised South African tribesmen into the habit of washing their genitals after having sex;

    14. $484,000: Researchers explored whether hypnotists could help postmenopausal women avoid hot flashes.

    15. $294,000 to push yoga if hypnotists could not help postmenopausal women avoid hot flashes.

    Progressive groups have also tried to falsely accuse Republicans of slashing funding for health agency, running ads claiming that “Republican Cuts Kill” even though the numbers do not back up their claims. In fact, it was President Barack Obama’s budget that proposed cuts to key public health agencies.

    As the Atlanta Business Chronicle noted, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) got an “8.2 percent budget increase for fiscal 2014, thanks to a $1.1 trillion spending bill announced by Congress Jan. 13.” In addition, the CDC received more funds than Obama had requested because of Congress. According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, the CDC’s $6.9 billion “is $567 million more than it received in 2013, “and “this is more than the agency anticipated, because the president’s fiscal year 2014 budget request for it was just $6.6 billion — a decrease of $270 million from fiscal 2012.”

    And as Reason observed, the “Pandemic Preparedness Funding” in America’s “Global Health Program” actually saw “a decrease of $22.5 million (-31%) below” its fiscal year 2014 funding because Obama’s budget requested that decrease.

  52. Zeus Crankypants says:

    Many of these taxpayer-funded studies are a combination of absurd, like spending $181,406 getting Japanese quail high on cocaine, and downright offensive, like one project costing $544,188 studying how to convince young girls to get the HPV vaccine. Surely, these two agencies could find ways to run their operations more efficiently. By way of comparison, the combined budgets the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, FBI, DEA and Secret Service came to nearly $1 billion less than the NIH and CDC combined budgets.

    If NIH and CDC are still having trouble coming up with ways to fund their fight against Ebola, here is a list of 15 wasteful programs totaling $15,135,574,669.00 where they could have saved:

    1. Telling Taxpayers How to Eat ($15 billion) – Yes, that’s billion with a “b” in front. In a massive overstep of government power, Obamacare carved out $15 billion for CDC to convince Americans to make “healthy” choices through “Community Transformation Grants” (CTG). The CTG program “supports efforts to modify behavior through anti-obesity campaigns, as well as anti-smoking and pro-sin tax regulations and legislation” at the state and local levels, according to the bipartisan Citizens Against Government Waste.

    2. Grant Money to China ($90 million) – NIH awarded more than $90 million to Chinese researchers. This included $2 million to develop a vaccine for a parasite disease common in China. The Traditional Values Coalition asked, “As our country heads to fiscal ruin, why are we giving millions in taxpayer dollars to Chinese science — which benefits China and its institutions — when they hold more than $1 trillion in American debt?”

    3. Duplicate Agricultural Programs ($22 million) – CDC spent $22 million on their Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing Program. The problem? This project was nearly identical to efforts already underway at the Department of Agriculture. CDC allotted $181,966 for developing a smart phone app for specialized farmers in Tennessee.

    4. “Why Are Lesbians Fat?” ($2.87 million) – That’s one question NIH has decided to research for the last four years, spending more than $2.87 million so far on the project. The ongoing study is meant to explain why “women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic,” operating under the claim that “three-quarters” of lesbians are obese. First funded in 2011, the study is slated to continue into 2016.

    5. Promoting HPV Vaccine for Young Girls ($544,188) – CDC provided $544,188 for a study on how to boost the number of young girls getting Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccinations in Los Angeles County. Although CDC says the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risk, it counts 772 serious adverse side effects, including 32 deaths, among the millions of doses administered to young girls between June, 2006, and December, 2008. Parents have raised moral objections as to whether young girls should receive the vaccine, which covers four sexually transmitted diseases.

    6. Drunken Monkeys ($3.2 million) – NIH spent $3.2 million getting monkeys drunk just to see what would happen. The agency apparently has quite a fascination with excessive drinking, since it also “doled out money in recent years for research on binge-drinking mice, inebriated gamblers and pilots seeking the sensation of flying drunk,” according to The Washington Times.

    7. Bizarre Sex Studies ($1.5 million) – Congress voted to give NIH $1.5 million to spend on four obscure sex studies: “Mood Arousal and Sexual Risk Taking,” “Study on Sexual Habits of Older Men,” “Study on San Francisco’s Asian Prostitutes/Masseuses,” and “Study on American Indian Transgender Research.” NIH still received the requested funds from Congress, despite efforts by Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Penn., in 2004 to defund the projects.

    8. Funds for Homosexual Activists in Public Schools ($1.4 million) – CDC gave The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), the homosexual activist group, $1.4 million to create “safe spaces” in public schools starting in 2011. The funding will be distributed during a five year period, as GLSEN works in 20 targeted school districts across the country. GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard claimed in 2011 that safe spaces “are vital to these students’ health, success in school and life prospects.”

    9. Centers for ‘Gun Disease’ Prevention ($2.6 million) – CDC spent $2.6 million on studies that also seemed to favor greater gun control before when Congress defunded the research in 1999. Apparently Congress thought CDC had more important issues to study, like how to control actual diseases. For FY 2015, President Obama is asking Congress to grant CDC $22.2 million in new funding to study and prevent gun violence. Obama has made similar requests in previous years, though unsuccessfully.

    9. National Institutes of ‘Gun Control’ ($5 million) – Separately from the CDC, NIH also handed out nearly $5 million for research promoting gun control as of October, 2009, according to an article in The Washington Times. NIH pursued research on “gun related violence,” despite the issue being well outside the organization’s typical domain. Grants included “$642,561 in taxpayer funds to learn how inner-city teenagers whose friends, acquaintances and peers carry firearms and drink alcohol on street corners could show up in emergency rooms with gunshot wounds.”

    10. Cocaine Enhances Japanese Quail’s Sex Drive ($181,406) – No joke, this was a real study sponsored by NIH and slated to run through next year. Why quail? Because “quail provide a convenient and interesting alternative to standard laboratory rats and pigeons.”

    11. Empowering Women to Choose Contraception … in Jail ($279,789) – Liberals have long battled to expand women’s access to contraceptives. So in June 2012, NIH allocated $279,789 “to improve contraceptive use for incarcerated women” as they neared the end of their jail time. The program, which ran from June 1, 2008, through on May 31, 2014, was ultimately intended to reduce unexpected pregnancies and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) among recently incarcerated women.

    12. Bogus AIDS Experiments ($4.9 million) – Results of an HIV/AIDS vaccine study funded by NIH were faked by researcher at Iowa State University (ISU), calling into question $19 million in grants awarded to the same researcher over the years. “Inauthentic” samples throughout a period of four years made the vaccine reportedly appear far more effective than it actually was. Although NIH refused to pay ISU the final installment of the grant money, the university was allowed to keep more than $4.9 million after paying back the researcher’s salary – nearly three-quarters of the original grant.

    13. Sex Workers Spreading STDs ($675,786) – Ever wonder why sex workers spread HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)? The answer might seem obvious, but NIH is spending $675,786 to find out exactly how and why in an ongoing study. Researches are continuing the regular testing of 600 female sex workers on the U.S.-Mexico border for HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, and Chlamydia.

    14. Examining ‘Barriers to Correct Condom Use’ ($423,500) – It turns out “young, heterosexual adult men” weren’t using condoms as frequently as NIH would like. A study investigating the apparent problem in 2009 came with $423,500 price tag.
