What has the so called Republican establishment done for this country? It gave us George W. Bush and the never ending wars in the Middle East with no end in sight. It gave us trillions in debt as a result of the wars in the Middle East. It bailed out Wall Street and the big banks while the middle class started dying in 2007. But even worse it gave us Obama. The Republican establishment gave us McCain and Palin (remember I can see Russia!) to run the first time against Obama, and the second time against Obama they gave the country Romney (called 47% of the country welfare bums), a friend and part of the Wall Street establishment. Yes, by electing Obama the country repudiated the policies of Bush and the Republican establishment. Now the Republican establishment says Trump must be stopped. The Republican establishment does not care about conservative values, but it does care about Wall Street and the big banks. It’s okay to bail out Wall Street, but when millions were losing their homes, the Republican establishment said they never should have bought homes they could not afford. Teach them a lesson – let them lose their homes. The Republican establishment should not tell us who we should elect since the values of the Republican establishment are not the values of America.
The disease is spread through mosquitoes and in the winter in Northern Illinois mosquitoes are not a problem. No locally transmitted Zika cases have been reported in the continental United States, but cases have been reported in returning travelers. Locally transmitted cases have been reported in Mexico, Brazil, other South American countries, and Puerto Rico. It sounds like another good reason to build the Trump Wall between Mexico and the United States, although it will probably not be high enough to keep those mosquitoes out.
A Houston woman described what it was like to be infected with the Zika virus during a trip to El Salvador over Christmas. Lizzie Morales told ABC’s Houston station KTRK-TV that she spent a week experiencing the extreme fatigue, nausea and a large rash that covered her body.
“You have no strength or energy to sit down. You just want to lay down and sleep,” she told KTRK-TV.
Morales said she had fatigue for a week and nausea towards the end of her virus.
“Christmas Eve, I was scratching. My chest, bumps on my lips, eyes, ears,” she said.
