LIKE THE WAR ON SCIENCE, ONLY DUMBER.

National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins, probably annoyed that Republicans who couldn't give two shits about medical research are whooping up Ebola like it's an STD Obama is giving to white women, came out and said that budget cuts to the NIH have adversely impacted their development of a vaccine.

The response from the rocket scientists at Twitchy, Michelle Malkin's troll factory, is that Collins is a "fool" and a stoopid egghead just trying to "exploit this outbreak to get more funding" for his precious NIH but news flash Mr. Bigbrain Twitchy goin' VIRAL with a hashtag (#TookMoneyFromEbolaResearch) that will alert the sheeple to what really robbed your stupid science-people boondoggle:
Not mentioned: The $3 trillion Iraq war which, if Republicans get their way, will soon be going for 4.

Twitchy's hashtag has indeed been picked up by other operatives, and will soon educate the masses thus:


The portion of the electorate that is not screaming EBOLA WE ALL GON DIE through beaks stuffed with lavender will, I am sure, see right through this nonsense. But we need a majority! (travelling music)

    Shorter all wingnuts: Since it's really close to the midterms, let's pretend we care about black people by pretending to care about Ebola research by pretending that we're outraged that the money* was spent on black people.



    *The relatively small pool of money that is spent on things such as scientific research and the White House garden, not to be confused with the vastly larger pool spent on defense pork barrel projects that is inviolate because 'Merica--the F-35 will be ready to attack ISIS, one of these decades.

  3. One might point out other drains for public health funding: Endless Congressional investigations on non-scandals, especially BENGHAZI!!!; votes to de-fund the ACA; the fucking lazy-ass sequester; and the goddamned GOP cutting health funding because they hate science and non-Bible medicine.

    "Obama’s vacations"
    This ties in to what I noticed a while back, that the right-wingers seem to think that since it's "their turn" now, they get to make the same complaints about Obama that we made about W. So they're wailing about "Obama’s vacations" here and golf elsewhere, not understanding or not caring that the complaint during W's admin was that W was setting vacation day records from year 1, and the records only got more shattered as his admin went on, thus showing W couldn't give a microshit about doing his job.

    Well, at least they're acknowledging that money actually was taken from Ebola research. I guess that's a start. Pity they don't care to know that the entire NIH budget is around $30 billion, which is about 2 months worth of spending on our glorious Freedom Operations, Iraqi and Enduring. (When long-term veterans' care and benefits is taken into account, the $3 trillion dollar estimate doubles, but what's a few trillion dollars when all we really need to do is repeal Obamacare, since healthcare has nothing to do with stuff like virus epidemics.)

  14. It's amazing how little time it took Republicans to start caring deeply about public health, isn't it? Why, it seems like only yesterday that public health was a liberal plot to control all our lives and willfully impoverish the United States. Come to think of it, that was yesterday, wasn't it?

    This whole thing is so brain-numbingly stupid.

    The ONLY thing that took money from Ebola research was the choice that Congress made in appropriating money for NIH/CDC. The other choices Congress made in appropriating money for other government functions did not in any way impair its ability to put more money into research.

    And of course, the overall cutting of expenditures across the board through the sequester mechanism didn't help either.

    And, all of that was preventable if we'd just had travel restrictions. You'll hear propaganda from WHO, WaPo, NYDN, CDC, etc. arguing against a complete travel ban, but that's not the same as travel restrictions.

  118. Liberia only has one major airport and it only has one runway. Of the eight or so carriers that used it, six or so have stopped flights. It wouldn't take much to get the other two to stop flights. The U.S. military could fly in aid workers and supplies, and fly out those who had a very good need to get out (which wasn't Duncan). Anyone coming back would have to go through a 21+ day quarantine. We can give $ to those very few affected by not being able to fly out. Likewise with the other two countries. (That is, two for now).



    The NYT has a report on cordons sanitaires being used there, but it's too little too late. Cote d'Ivoire has shut down their border, even if the chocolate harvest suffers. Other countries are taking steps to contain the virus, yet the U.S. still lets anyone come here like nothing happened. That's nuts.

    Of course this should be left to the magic of the market. For now, only poor Africans are dying. But when Ebola is running riot through wealthier first-world countries--that's when there will be money in finding a cure! And that's when the invisible hand will lay its magic-market fingers on all the survivors.

  144. This thread is discussing the 40% cut in the health preparedness budget since 2006, so we're wondering why you're here with your Fox-approved talking points about travel restrictions. Actually we're not wondering. Beat up on Obama, his wife, Democrats, liberals, spread some ginned-up panic, confuse the issues. A good day's work for a wingnut agitator, right?

    You do have to admit that they got a lot more enthusiastic when they realized they could use "public health" as an excuse to indulge is some of their favorite activities: denying entry to the US to black people, arbitrarily charging ill black people with criminal acts, and publicly fantasizing about committing genocide against black people. I'd point out the common thread, but I don't want to be decisive at the time of a crisis.
