One can never have too many blowjobs.
You would know this if you had ever received one.
A few loonies in the woods - watch out!
You mean from other than a dude/tranny/shemale, right?
Today's conservative is getting exactly what they deserve...kicked to the curb. This is what happens when you adopt leftist polices rather than relentlessly confront them head on. At some point people figure out you're no different than a leftist democrat who is just pandering for votes. LEAD or die!
Herbert Streicher would likely disagree.
Had to look that one up, I admit. I'm not familiar with male porn stars...
House Republicans slash funding that would help fight Ebola
The White House recently requested $88 million to be dedicated to fighting and containing the Ebola virus. Phew! After the U.N. recently said that it would take $600 million to tackle the crisis, with health care professionals are getting infected due to equipment shortages and the dead being improperly disposed of, or not disposed of at all, the governments of Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone could use all the help they can get.
Turns out, House Republicans slashed the government spending bill, and will now provide less than half of what was originally requested. The Hill reports:
According to a source familiar with the negotiations, House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) agreed as of Tuesday morning to spend a total of $40 million to fight the epidemic in the 2015 spending bill.
This would include $25 million for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and $15 million for the Biological Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) to ramp up production of an experimental anti-Ebola drug, the source said…
A spokeswoman for the House Appropriations Committee would not confirm the numbers, saying the details of the bill are not yet finalized.
BARDA is responsible for coordinating the U.S.’ response to public health crises, including testing, drug development and other services associated with “public health and medical consequences of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) accidents, incidents and attacks, pandemic influenza, and emerging infectious diseases.”
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the worst epidemic of all time, responsible for 2,296 deaths out of at least 4,293 cases.
Pat Robertson: “Blessed are the fully armed”
Pat Robertson, TV preacher and proud owner of a poorly calibrated moral compass, declared on Tuesday’s episode of “The 700 Club” that we should distribute guns to churches because “blessed are the fully armed.”
“Violent attacks and even deaths on church property occur far more often than people realize,” he said. “The good news: You can protect yourself. What are you going to do, are you going to give church members AK-47s at the door to let them blow away those intruders?” No, probably not.
The show then aired a segment on “Eyes and Ears” teams, which are made up of members of the congregation, who serve shifts to watch out for any suspicious behavior.
“What is the new beatitude?” Robertson said cheerfully after the segment. “Blessed are the fully armed because theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.”
“I really believe that if the bad guys understand that the citizenry are able to react against them then they won’t be as free to go into a crowded mall or a school or a church and start blowing people out. I do believe that if people are trained with firearms, and they’re able to protect themselves, I don’t think it will lead to more violence, it will lead to less. And that’s what the statistics I think that are available to us show,” he continued. “The idea of having citizens who are trained or to have off-duty police in your church is not a bad thing … It’s something to consider.”
