Thomas Duncan's Nephew: He Never Helped "A Pregnant Woman with Ebola" - trackfan
Considering the source, I don't necessarily take this at face value, but I do wonder if Duncan didn't tell his family that he helped a pregnant woman, where did this story come from? Did the CDC go back to his neighborhood and interview his neighbors. There's certainly a lot of pressure on the CDC c...

NBC's Nancy Snyderman Violates Ebola Quarantine - trackfan
The head of the CDC has slammed her for it, and she's apologized, but if a high-profile, medical professional like Snyderman can't be counted on to honor a quarantine, how are these west African governments going to get thousands of ordinary folks to comply? http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/er...

Some French Jews Have Joined ISIS - trackfan
Not only does ISIS not discriminate when it comes to who they will kill (most of their victims are Muslim), but they also seem to be pretty open about who can join, with 1000's of Europeans and Americans having already traveled to the Mideast to wage jihad on behalf of ISIS. However, I have to admit...

The Daily Caller Calls On Rand Paul To Throw His Dad Under The Bus - trackfan
They are actually comparing Ron Paul to Jean-Marie Le Pen. As far as I know, Ron has never said anything remotely similar to the bigoted things Le Pen has said. opefully, Rand won't heed their advice because I would lose respect for him if he did. It's alright for him to publicly disagree with his D...

I thought I'd help Rolltide out a little with his duties as the PT board's unofficial Rand Paul press secretary. [quote]Sen. Rand Paul has spent quite a bit of time reaching out to liberals over the past year, and that list apparently now includes Bill Maher. Paul, a libertarian-leaning Republ...

The Details Of The U.S.- Iran Nuclear Deal - trackfan
Currently Iran has 9500 centrifuges up and running, with another 10,000 on standby. The U.S. wants Iran to shutdown another 7000 - 8000 centrifuges, but the Iranians aren't willing to go that far, but might be willing to shutdown half of them, so that they'll still have 4500 - 5000 up and running. O...

Arabs Release Pictures Of Pilots Who Are Bombing ISIS - trackfan
Included in the group of pilots whose pictures have been released are a woman and a Saudi prince. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama insisted on this in order to deny the Arabs plausible deniability and to prevent the war from being characterized as a crusade on the Arab street.

New Al Qaeda Branch Attacks Wrong Ship - trackfan
One thing we should be grateful for is that apparently Al Qaeda wasted their best and brightest on 9/11/01, because ever since then they've tried to attack us with incompetent nincompoops - the shoe bomber, the underwear bomber, the Time Square bomber (who couldn't make gasoline explode), etc. This ...

The NFLPA Recieves A Letter From Goodell Explaining The Indenfinite Suspension - trackfan
Goodell must be really desperate because it appears that the strategy that he's going to use to save his job is to accuse Ray Rice of lying when he met with him.

Germany Bans ISIS Propaganda And Symbols In Order To Stop Recruitment - trackfan
Of course Germany has no 1st Amendment as we know it, so it can get away with passing hate speech laws. Many U.S. extremist organizations would be banned in Germany, and Holocaust denial is a felony that will land you in prison. Personally, I think these type of laws are unnecessary since we already...
