Hello my friend,,, I'm Really happy to hear your doing good and adjusting it sounds like to your new surroundings.

I had to bail out of my thread, www.abovetopsecret.com...
I just tired of being told of my Ignorance and that I'm Ignorant for laying blame where lame needed to be laid.
Not at Romney's feet or Bush's feet or Fox news or the Big Corporations.

Some new person kept attacking me calling me all kinds of Ignorant and my husband told me just to get out.

I know the MODS aren't going to do anything, it seems that it's OK to call people that now from what I've seen in other threads.

I need a drink.

Ugh, I don't blame you for bailing. I'm not really up to saying much in any threads right now except maybe here. I think it was that overdose of stress the last couple of weeks. I've found that my brain needs to be prepared for threads that will be hotly contested and yes I know what you mean about alerts. Out of the last 3 or 4 I've sent only one was answered.

A drink sounds good, only a double for me it's still early.

Well from the posters wording style, it reminds me of some one who was Banned not to long ago.
A hard core obama supporter that followed all the threads and claimed that it was the Giant Corporation's that Controlled Obama and he was just doing their work.
That's Old and Out dated, That has been used every sense we've had an industrial age.

As I recall, rules of civic decorum aren't enforced in the "Political Mud Pit" forum -- if you had posted in "US Political Madness," it would have received typical ATS moderation.

Well, that's True I suppose, except, he / her parents failed to teach the little Crumb Catcher any Manners.
Internet Bravado I think, he / she finally grew a set of Something when they turned on the Computer and logged on in their mothers basement.

To bad, one day they'll actually have to step outside and they'll be Shocked to Learn, the sun does up and the planet is still spinning.

That's true of the mud-pit. A majority of the alerts I've sent were from the WWIII forum though. Each time the topic was Ukraine and some of the blatant thread derailing attempts and the name calling was quite breathtaking.

Normally I'd not even bother with an alert but a while back one of the mods suggested I should so I gave it a go. So I did but the results were underwhelming. I'm sure they also have their hands full as well so no biggie.

Afternoon, y'all!

Wow, what a day. I can't stay here long, but I thought I'd drop in long enough to gain some respite from the Ebola threads. I know it's a scary subject and a scary disease, but man people have lost all sense of perspective on this. If I don't take a break from it, I might lose my mind. Sometimes, I'm glad I developed a macabre fascination with all the great plagues of the past and the diseases that caused them because it's actually somewhat useful now although I'm sure my high school English teacher thought my term paper on the Black Death was ... strange.


Anyhow, what kind of crazy, messed up world do we live in where my husband and I can sit there in the evening discussing on one hand how we're going to prepare for Ebola (should it find its way here) and then spend time discussing how we're going to prepare for our son's birthday (it's tomorrow; he's 4).

Just before we put him to bed last night, he looked at me and said, "Mama, I want a 'emote control car."

It was the first time he's asked for anything without having something right in front of him, so of course, I had to see if I could find him a reasonably-priced remote control something when I went shopping for him today. I found this. I think once he learns how to drive it, the cats are going to be in trouble!


And now, I have to go and try to bake a birthday cake. Triple layer German chocolate. I think there should be enough to share, as always.

Evening, all.
Is that a jug of coffee on the hot-plate? And do I see a plate of bikkies? This could be another long night.

Unless it mutates to become an airborne virus, it isn't particularly scary if you're not a medical worker, or you don't live in a country where they routinely manually handle dead bodies immediately after death and during burial, as is the case in some African countries.

That's what I mean, though. It's scary in that if you get it, your goose may very well be cooked, but first you have to get it. And people don't seem to understand that unless it becomes extremely widespread which is unlikely, their odds of coming into contact with someone who has it, because that's really what it takes - direct contact with infectious fluids either directly from the person or soon after they deposit them, are quite low. It would take extraordinarily bad luck in fact.

But, yes, we did talk about measures in case it did come to this area. I believe our plan of attack is to simply wear rubber gloves and avoid going out in public as much as possible.

Hasn't everyone who had it that received that new drug survived? That would be the 3-4 Americans, I guess.

If so, it sounds like it's a lot to do about nothing, going from a 90% death rate to zero. Until it mutates, I suppose, but that's not assured.

Not really. This is a different strain than that one, and even in the horrible conditions of Africa, this one only has about a 60% mortality rate. With excellent supportive care like we can offer in American hospitals, that mortality rate can be reduced quite a bit. Exactly how much is unknown, but certainly less than 50%, maybe to as much as 40%.

You'll note that the current patient's condition went from critical to serious and has remained stable?

The thing is - When you can provide a level of care that lowers the mortality rate which was already hovering not far above a 50/50 crap shoot to slightly below a 50/50 crap shoot, you really can't say for sure that the completely experimental drug did anything when it had never been tested in humans before, especially when the of the three people who received it, two lived and one died.

Thanks for the info. I know little about medicine and haven't been paying too much attention to the whole Ebola thing -- I work from home and live out in the middle of nowhere in a state that routinely sees -20F temperatures, so I think my susceptibility is pretty low.

Well, I certainly feel for the people who came into close contact this man, especially the paramedics and other medical workers. They have to now live with the fear of having gotten this thing for three weeks, and it's pretty certain that at least some of them will have it, and for those in close contact with those people ... the cycle then starts all over again.

I know from experience that quarantine is crappy. I was young enough not to realize the full import, but when I was a kid, one of the cooks at the camp I went to got hepatitis and they had to give all of us a shot and we all had to use voluntary quarantine measures for the incubation period. Our parents freaked out.

Hey how's everybody doing? I'm sure most of you have seen me around


It's amazing, I lurked for 14 years and only joined a short while ago. I love the site even more now that I'm interacting. Plenty of great discussions here, awesome people.

Actually, The MOD did step in and took one of the post away for Bad Manners I believe it was and the other the MOD delete the reference to me being Ignorant.

I'd like to Say Thank You To All MODS.

It is hard now to start a tread, it seems like all they do is Attack and Attack.
The last post is from another Attacker complaining about the thread being Republican Controlled and ATS is Republican Controlled and how I want the Children to Starve and Die of lack of Heath-care and so on and so on,,,,,What a Bunch Of Whiner's!
Sorry, I came here to Vent!
Please give me a Drink,,,,, I'll have a Rusty Nail, Heavy on the Nail!
