Ebola is Doing Its Thing

EBOLA IS DOING ITS THING

 

Thomas Duncan died from Ebola at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

Nina Pham, the nurse who treated him is sick.

Amber Vinson flew on Frontier Airlines with a fever.

Hot times in the old plane tonight.

Death be not proud,

Picking on the week and confined.

 

Gay pride was a reaction formation.

Were they proud when AIDS was the big deal?

 

Dr. Thomas Friedan and Barack Obama are still alive

Although they don’t want to stop flights from West Africa.

 

They say that they have Ebola under control

In order to control the population’s fear

And hang onto the Senate.

 

They send men in white suits and masks around

To control the outbreak.

If it takes a dozen men for each patient then how many millions

Of outfitted nurses will we need if there is a real outbreak?

And Duncan’s nurse got sick regardless of the protective gear.

We are dying.

Obama is lying.

 

And just for the record they did find weapons of mass destruction

In Iraq.

Bush never lied.

How many of us will have died from Obama’s failure to contain Ebola.

 

Obama says that the plague will be worse if we don’t allow airplanes

From Liberia landing.

That’s like saying AIDS will be worse if we use prophylactics

Or stop anal intercourse.

 

I have lost all faith in this administration.

Even the liberal democrats are hiding from Obama like women

Beneath burqas.

Their comedians are making fun of the man they spent six years praising.

 

Obama stops ISIS by dropping bombs on the wrong targets

And not arming the Kurds.

 

Obama pretends that he is not related but he is a brother to the Muslim Brotherhood.

John Kerry thinks that the greatest threat to our country is global warming.

We have been in a fifteen year cooling spree.

There is more ice in the Antarctic.

 

What about the fevers you get with Ebola?

What about James Foley’s head on a plate?

What about a leader who apologizes for other people’s sins

And wants to weaken America so he doesn’t have to feel like the high school bully

He was too weak to be?
