Symptoms of Ebola

Wondering about Ebola?

NPR.org has several articles documenting the history of this virus, including the symptoms of ebola.

Symptoms: It can take anywhere from two to 21 days after infection for symptoms to kick in, but once they do, the pain is excruciating. It starts off with a fever, muscle pains, vomiting and diarrhea. It also makes the victims so weak that it leaves them bedridden. As the virus spreads, it can shut down major organs, such as the kidneys and liver. And the infection can cause internal and external bleeding from openings in the body, including eyes, ears, nose, rectum and even pores. The peak of the illness is the first seven to 10 days, during which patients are most likely to die.

Where is War Money Coming From

Congress continues to focus the general public on the make believe problem of not having enough money to spend on the poor, the elderly, the sick and the homeless.

Yet we continue to hear about their plans to send money to other countries, especially money for wars, ammunition, and the military.

Where is everyone's common sense?

If there is no money to take care of the dying people in America, then where is all of this war money coming from?

Until this nation realizes that sustaining life is more honorable than taking life, we will continue to struggle as a nation.

It's karma. It's a universal law of nature. You reap what you sow.

Meanwhile, I find it uplifting to hear a movie star or other famous person using their fame to try to bring some common sense and humanity to their fans.

The real answer to all of America's money problems is so simple.

Yet the "people" continue to ignore the solution.

From the mouths of the wealthy...

Raise taxes on the 1%.

Stop all…
