On June 26, 2014 Vice posted a video on youtube about the Ebola outbreak in Africa. Little did we know the outbreak was going to get much worse. It is kinda scary that in just six or so weeks the Ebola outbreak went from barley making the news to getting worldwide attention.
There are a several important points in this video:
1. As the population of Africa expands into jungle, the indigenous people will be exposed to viral infections never seen before.
2. We share around 99% of our DNA with primates. When humans keep primates as pets and eat meat from primates, there is an increased risk of exposure.
3. With modern transportation Ebola and other diseases are just a plane ride away from the rest of the world.
Stuff like this makes me ask, how did this guy ever get elected?
Second question, why would anyone consider voting for him again?
Obama waives sanctions on countries that use child soldiers
Breaking with a tradition that goes all the way back to Woodrow Wilson, president obama signed an excessive order waving sanctions on nations that kidnap children.
This clearly shows what kind of government president obama sides with, governments that commit crimes against humanity.
But then again, its two faced to criticize child soldiers, while allowing the use of child labor in sweat shops.
So lets just allow china to use child labor, and nations in africa use child soldiers, then everyone will be happy. Everyone that is, except for the children.
