    Agree with all you.have said here. I am an 8th generation Texan and agree that Texas may well be the last bastion of what we once knew as America.

    This battle starts on our knees in prayer to the Almighty. It starts in our own homes where we remove the things of Satan that distract us from truly seeing the evil that surrounds us.

    I wept at the news of the scotus decision. I was angered when the.local news station advertised the gay pride celebration and advised that families should join the festivities and to bring the kids along.

    This is a time for choosing who you you will stand with and what you will stand for. Choose wisely and prepare carefully. The storm is at hand.

    I had a Maytag Neptune set and HATED it. It would lock the lid and hold my clothes hostage sometimes for as long as 3 days. Tech said it was a circuit board not warranteed after 60 days so I gave them away and got the top of the line Kenmore front loading set. I love them! The sanitize setting does take a while but I don’t use it that often. It uses less water than the Maytag and has thus far been reliable.

    That's a tough one. If it were my child I would have a long talk about basic sanitation, being aware of the things you and others touch in the course of the day and the liberal use of soap, water and strong hand sanitizers. I would also make sure the student had a box of gloves, chlorine cleaning solution wipes, and a mask suitable for filtering viruses, and knew how to use them. Everything and everyone should be considered contaminated. Extra food and water could be stored in the dorm room in case it is needed.

    Another factor to consider would be how he/she would have to travel home. I would think that I would rule out public transportation. We had a report that a woman who was supposed to be self-quarantined got sick at the Whiterock DART station. Not much more information that that was available.

    I would also look into how many students from affected west African nations are enrolled. You can probably find that on their website since academics are proud of their diversity. I would also find out what emergency procedures the school has in the event of an outbreak of anything contagious.

    I would make plans to decide when it is time for them to head home and make sure that the plan is followed. Lots of things to factor into a decision like this.

    We don't get much information at the local level, most of it from places like FR, Drudge and national news. I still have contacts at the university and will post on FR if I hear anything that may be of concern. Best of luck to you and your son.

    Down here in Galveston County, my neighbors are getting concerned and have called to ask about precautions. I worked at UTMB and part of my job was to monitor protocols at the Galveston National Lab Biosafety Lab Level 4.

    While I never entered the containment area, I did observe from just outside the containment area. My job was to observe and make sure safety protocols were being followed. Based upon the information I had, I don't believe the public is being told the truth about this outbreak. We treated it as if it were an airborne pathogen and Ebola Reston strain did go airborne.

    At this point, I would have on hand a case of sterile gloves, shoe covers, gowns and a proper respirator mask for each member of the household, boxes of N95 viral masks, bleach for disinfecting and insist that nobody comes in without gloving up, putting on a mask and taking their shoes off before entering - shoes remain outside.

    Food and water should be put by in case of quarantine and an eye towards hardening your home for safety and security purposes. Sheets of plastic and duct tape should be considered for doors and windows to be secured from the inside. Since I live about 40 miles inland, I have 5/8" lexan storm windows on the house and storm doors.

    Prepare as best you can and hope for the best. It is evident that Obama doesn't have much interest in protecting the American public, so we will have to do it ourselves.

    Lots of free info on the internet through YouTube too. I highly recommend Wendy DeWitt's food storage seminar and anything from Stephanie Peterson regarding meals in a jar (she's also goes by Chef Tess). Videos from Linda's Pantry, Imstillworking,Bexasprepper are also good.

    You don't have to be an expert to do this. Read/watch and learn. Start with small batches and work your way up to larger amounts. If you flub something at first, you do not have a lot invested in it and can work on it to get it right.

    Not saying this is all you should have. I do have freeze dried items, enough for 3 years for my family, that remain unopened and should be good for about 20 years. The jar/pouch solution seemed the right application for hurricanes and the Ebola scenarios - Short to Mid term storage.

    Water, don't forget water, that should be your first priority. If you use the pool shock tablets make sure they do not contain an algaecide. It will make you sick.

    I was going to say not practical for long-term survival, due to the relatively large costs of the jars and then the storage space required, but you’re really looking at it for non-refrigerated short-term storage of excess food. That does make sense.

    Depending on the items stored they can last anywhere from 3-15 years when stored like this. Most of my jars have been purshaed on sale, at yard sales and closeout sales. Storage space includes closets, under the beds, under couches, and in my pantry - generally areas not used for anything else.

    There may not be time to do this now, but for future reference. I have been dehydrating and dry-canning meals in mylar bags and quart sized mason jars for the last couple of years now for relatively little expense. Most of it is made from items we might have otherwise thrown away in terms of produce. Left over celery, onions, carrots, garlic - almost any kind of fruits and vegetables can be dehydrated and you don't need special equipment to do it. Rice, beans, pasta, flour, sugar, cornmeal oatmeal, etc. can also be stored this way. You can pre-cook beans and rice, then dehydrate them to make prep time shorter to save on fuel.

    My closets are full of meals like spaghetti and meat sauce, Rice and beans, beef stew, chicken and stuffing, mac and cheese, chicken noodle soup, potato cheese soup, cream of chicken, mushroom and broccoli soup base for soup or for casseroles, cookie, cake, cornbread, biscuit and pancake mixes and fruit cobbler mixes. I also dehydrate herbs from my herb garden so the food will not be bland. I make my own tomato powder, onion powder and garlic powder.

    The only thing I purchase is freeze dried meats. The dehyrdtated doesn't have a long shelf life and it seems safer to leave the meat to the experts. The only special equuipment I have is a FoodSaver and I use oxygen absorbers. There is a lot of information out there on the internet on how to do this.

    The Arab neighbors could have solved this problems as you have proposed many years ago had that been their goal. . The only way any of them wants to solve the problem is to eradicate Israel.

    It may be the only time I do so, but agree with Joan Rivers on her comment that if New Jersey were bombing New York, New York would take out New Jersey. We have no right yo tell Israel to just grin and bear it while that would not be our own policy.

    The muslim in the White House further complicates the issue through his insulting treatment of Israel's prime minister and his miserable interfering secretary of state.

    Israel is our only ally in the middle east and we have the privilege of supporting her right to exist.

    Mr. Netanyahu knows what needs to be done and if the wimp in the white house doesn't have the testicular fortitude to support Israel's efforts to protect her citizens, the he should not hamper those efforts, but rather stand back and watch how a REAL leader handles the situation.

    I just sent this or a variation thereof to my Texas Senators and House reps. Please consider doing the same and demand that Congress use the power of the purse to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into this country. If the feds won’t follow the law, Texas will lead the way in doing so, but it takes money. Money that is being wasted elsewhere! Let them know how you feel about illegal immigration and NO AMNESTY for law-breakers:

    Please help us here in the border state of Texas and in all the other border states to stop this insanity. Please stop all funding that the DOJ (Department of in-justice) is using to hire lawyers for these law breakers at taxpayer expense and re-route that money to compensate these states for expenses incurred in doing the job the federal government and Obama will not do.

    Excess monies I’m sure can be found in White House staff salaries, salaries of the unconstitutional czars Obama has illegally appointed, the President’s and first ladiy’s travel budgets and those of useless unconstitutional departments such as the DOE, EPA, IRS and other organizations that make the taxpayer’s life a living hell. You could also stop all foreign aid to the countries that are sending these illegals here and put that same money to use by keeping them from crossing our borders.

    This fight will take money and only the Congress has the power of the purse. It will take money to hire and pay the people who will do the job the government won’t do. Also, it will take money to send these people back to the countries from which they came. We would appreciate your help. As a concerned citizen and Texan, I thank you

    My sister was treated at the VA for her feet - she had terrible bunions at a young age that made it difficult for her to walk or find shoes that would fit. She was scheduled for an elective surgery at the VA in Houston.

    The surgery was done and a few days later she developed a terrible infection at the wound site and had to be rushed back in to surgery. Turns out that the VA had knowingly allowed surgeries to be conducted in an operating suite that was infected with MERSA virus. She found this our from her podiatrist who had operated on 4 patients that day - all elective surgeries. Two of his patients died as a result of the out of control infection and my sister ended up losing her leg below the knee due to gangrene from uncontrolled MERSA infection. She tried to sue, but could find no one who would take her case.

    The FDA does not do its own investigating before drugs are approved. In a clinical trial the company producing the drug contracts with an investigator (usually a doctor at a hospital_) to conduct a clinical trial. The docotr agrees to conduct the study accoring to drug company specifications and to recruit patients fitting the criteria into the study. The drug company will from time to time check on the progress of the study, but the FDA is almost NEVER involved in the study process. The FDA only approves the drugs or medical devises for use based upon the drug company’s data from the clinical trials. This data is very often “fudged” to give a better outcome so the drug will receive approval. There is big money involved and the stakes are high. Based on what I saw in my career as a clinical trial auditor, I’m surprised there are not more bad drugs.
