Tyler Durden's picture

Because nothing says "safety precautions" like rolled-up sleeves on a HazMat suit...

Great. Right down the road.

"Frieden dismissed suggestions that people traveling from West Africa should not be allowed into the U.S.

“The fact is that if we tried to seal the border, it would not work because people are allowed to travel,” he told ABC. “It would backfire because it would make it harder to stop the outbreak.”"

What the fuck? We are doomed.

Looks like more Darwin Award finalist for 2014!

Wonder where that car has been seen then...

Dumbass wears the hazmat suit but then rolls up his sleeve....if you dont give instructions to sheepish workers, they will definitely fuck it up still regardless.

Btw, Frieden is a dual citizen (US-Israel like someone mentioned earlier) so that already speak volumes of why this Ebola incident has gotten to this point. It was meant to happen like this and is unfolding as planned.

I am willing to bet Israel does NOT see 1 ebola case.

Nothing like top-kicking the biggest bubble in world history with the worst hemorrhagic fever in world history.

Why America's Not Ready For An Ebola Outbreak (In 2 PhotoS)

I fixed the headline, lol.

Anyways, even if this janitor wore protective gear, it's crazy because the power washing will cause the vomit particles go airborne.

Are we sure these aren't recycled pictures of the cleanup after a Kennedy compound party?

Beam Me Up Scotty's picture

Why are they wearing hazmat suits in an elementary school?? That seems to be an even better question!

gmrpeabody's picture

I'm not gonna panic till I see an ISIS dude dawn a hazmat suit to cut someone's head off...

sixsigma cygnusatratus's picture

I'm not going to panic until I see the White House working diligently to show Ebola has a birth certificate from Hawaii.

Gaius Frakkin' Baltar's picture

So this Ashoka guy thinks he was exposed after helping someone decontaminate a car (he was wearing at least some protective gear)...

Gawd, this poor guy power-washing the sidewalk in a t-shirt and sweatpants is fucked...

The PC term is Ebolan-Americans.

Hey, that 7225 street sign has a bit of an ISIS motif, don’tcha think?

..and WTF is with electric meters above head level?


And oh, geez, I would not want to be that seemingly barefoot or otherwise lower torso exposed chick of unknown origin in the bottom pic.

....and what is the income level of the people and neighborhoods being contaminated, here ?

12ToothAssassin's picture

Too bad .25 BAC doesnt kill ebola, Id be set!

LordEffingtonThreeSticks's picture

uh oh! Pressure washer.

Remember a few years back the pig carcasses pressure washed? The aerosol was respirated by workers and it caused a nerve problem.

I am going to go out on a limb and say pressure washer was a bad BAD BAAAAD choice.

Slowly poured buckets of water probably much better. WITH CHLOROX of course.

Smack those mosquitoes before they bite, and preferably not on your skin.

many RNA viruses are transmitted by insects, like Dengue and Yellow Fever for example, members of Flavivirus genus of RNA viruses, so it is not like viruses cant travel up and down the probosces of a mosquito.

Also do you want to take a bite out of your food after a fly just landed on some Ebola contaminated secretions before deciding to fly out a window and land you your lunch?

Whoa Dammit's picture

The quarantined family who lived in the apartment where the Ebola patient was staying have been moved to an anonymously donated home in a gated community somewhere in Dallas County. Apparently when the clean up crew got inside the apartment it was so nasty it would have taken days to clean it.

How'd you like to buy a nice house then have the Ebola Hoodbillies moved to your neighborhood? I bet the donor was a hedge fund.

Up next all West Africans living here will send for their infected relations so as to get a free McMansion to live in. Winning!

The US does have 3.3million gallons of napalm in war stocks.  
And I do believe that would no longer be sufficient.

1) Watch out when it hits Haiti

2) I'll bet Cuba handles it better than Obamanation.

El Vaquero's picture

That dude should be using one of the Horrible Freight weed burners instead of a pressure washer.  Those things will melt your fucking face off from 5' away.  Ebola wouldn't stand a chance against that cheaply made Chinese crap.

"It is contained".


MontgomeryScott's picture

Relax, America. Your government is in control, once again!

The Doofus's picture

Why worry so much?  Mother Nature is gonna do what Mother Nature is gonna do.  I doubt if Ebola will become airborne.  But if it does, should we blame Obama?  Deadly viruses have been killing humans for forever and a day.  Relax and enjoy the sunshine because tomorrow you'll be dead.

Duncan should have never been given a visa. The reason he got a visa is an illegal PROGRESSIVE IMMIGRATION POLICY to import a voter base that will keep progressive criminals in power.

Progressive murderers infesting the FEDGOV do not care how many Americans die as long as they can remain in power. American citizens are already dying by the thousands as a result of the illegal importation of a disease and criminal laden voter base.

Power kills, and the bloody progressives are ready to kill as many American citizens as it takes.


Progressives truly are the bloodiest murderers on the planet, second only to Islam who are fellow travelers in murdering tyranny.

Progressive criminals infesting the FEDGOV are a mortal threat and American citizens should fear for their lives.

Time for impeachment is long past and if no one will arrest the traitor progressive criminals then law abiding citizens threatened with murder by a rouge lawless government may opt for Rule .308 to fight for their lives.

I believe I can say that I've seen everything, now.

Surgical mask = allows over 20% into your mouth.

N95 = less than 5% if worn tight

N100 = less than 1% if worn tight


This is probably why Medical Staff have been dieing. You need a full blown bio suit to be 100%, but then there is always the cleaning process and mistakes happen.


Bitchez are dead....

Leonardo Fibonacci2's picture

Notice in the photo, its a negro (AFRICAN AMERICAN) that has raised up sleeves from protective suit. AFRICAN AMERICAN OR AFRICAN FROM AFRICA = same fucking lazy IQ! Basically, lazy & no fucking brains!

gmrpeabody's picture

Really, Leonardo, you must remember to <sarc> remarks like that...,

there are some here who might actually take that seriously.

And others who just plain disagree with your style.

Bangalore Equity Trader's picture

Listen Body.

You "AGAIN"?! Why don't you just leave people be man? Their expressive style is not yours to manipulate man.

Let's try to be more constructive.

gmrpeabody's picture

I'm honored that you remember me..., man.

5 to 1 he is more likely to get a book deal than go back to Liberia.

Thank you for the link; no good dead goes unpunished.

Irony: the person who would help a dieing 19 year old mother where others would not, leads to the deaths of millions.
For want of a horseshoe nail.

IrritableBowels's picture

Those comments from the Boston CBS site are very telling! A couple of years ago, and it would be filled with tears and flowers. Fast forward to today and there is mostly criticism and anger.

(and sarcasm!)

knukles's picture

Notice the car in the pic.  No license plate.

BlindMonkey's picture

I did notice that. I assumed he was protecting the resale value since the owner is going to borrow a suit and unload that thing ASAP.

Handful of Dust's picture

I hear the those Ivy League Apartments there have a nice sale going on now; 6 months rent-free with a signed 1-year lease.


[PS: In the event you vacate sooner then one year, your deposit will be refunded to the nearest living relative]

Lore's picture

No plate = Might just be screen glare reflected toward the camera with photographer in just the wrong spot

zhandax's picture

You guys never lived in Miami in the early 80's.  Recent 'immigrants' never got a ticket for lack of plates (yet).

gmrpeabody's picture

You do realize that was sarcasm?

awakeRewe's picture

It is an asbestos abatement crew most likely ... almost all old schools are full of it.

Poundsand's picture

Yeah, the janitors have to wear haz mat suits (or not) but the officials are out telling you not to pull your kid from school.  You can't make this stuff up!
