We Should Know in a Week or Two

So just how likely is it that Ebola will spread throughout the world?
I think we'll know by a week or two.
That will be enough time for the passengers on the plane that the second sick nurse from Dallas got on, to get sick. If those two nurses were spreading it we should be aware of it within 2 weeks.
In Nigeria, Patrick Sawyer spread it to over 20 people and the Nigerian health agency was still able to contain it.
Maybe there is hope, yet. All the newscasters are telling us that it's not very contagious. Maybe they're right. We should know soon. I might not have to bug out as quickly as I thought I would.
I'm still getting my motor home ready and I'm stocking up on food and water. The "Patriot Nurse" talked about prepping for Ebola on YouTube, recently. You might want to check out that video.
I wasted a day, yesterday, at an auction in Cresco. They had an SKS and a Mosin-Nagant for sale that I was interested in. I only had $100 that I could spend. The Mosin went for $175 and the SKS went for $350. I didn't even get a bid in. I wish I had more money but that's life.
I'm still waiting for the motor home to have shock absorbers replaced and the fuel gauges fixed. Maybe I should do the work myself. It might get done and I would save some money. It's getting a little cold to get anybody to help me with it.
Even without the Ebola outbreak, it looks to me like it's time to bug out due to the financial collapse that is pending. It's just time to be hiding out in the mountains and pan for gold. I don't see anything wrong with that plan. I've just got to be more serious about making it happen.
Not much else is happening. One or more of America's puppet states are claiming that there is satellite images of flight 17 being shot down by the rebels in Eastern Ukraine. If such images exist, why didn't they show them  6 months ago. I have more faith it what Max Keiser has to say than America's mainstream media. I would like to see somebody do more investigating (such as re-assembling the plane) but there is still a lot of fighting in that area.

Conflicting Data

We're getting conflicting data about the Ebola outbreak.
On one hand, people keep coming out of Africa and bring the virus to New York. I'm glad that the governors of New Jersey and New York made it mandatory for people who worked with Ebola patients in Africa to be quarantined when they come here. It's obvious that they need to be isolated for a while.
The good news is that Ebola may not be as easy to spread as it once appeared it was. Thomas Duncan (the person who brought Ebola to Texas) was living with several other people in an apartment in Dallas. He was quite contagious for at least 2 days while he was in that apartment. Yet, none of the other people in that apartment have come down with Ebola.
That bodes well for the rest of us. Maybe it's really not that contagious. It might be that the health care workers are just exposed to body fluids more that other people are. Maybe that's why so many of them come down with it in spite of their precautions.
I want to mention my feelings about panic spreading thought the East Coast. Now that 2 health care workers have brought Ebola to New York I feel that people will start selling their homes and move out of there. I expect thousands to move in the next week or two. That should crash the real estate market on the East Coast. Those people will probably move to the West Coast or Arizona. They don't know any better than to live in large cities. If I were them I would move to Canada or someplace isolated. This might start the long-awaited crash in real estate and the stock market. We'll see.
I think the government is spreading lies about the severity of the outbreak. The numbers of sick and dead victims of Ebola are not only late in arriving, but they are suspect. They don't seem to be progressing at the same rate that the spread of Ebola has spread for the last 9 or so months. I have doubts that they are accurate. If they are maybe it's coming under control. I doubt that very much. I think the news is being suppressed.
It's in the interests of the powers that be to keep the Sheeple in the dark. It would affect the real estate and stock market if we knew what is really going on. I feel that those markets will crash anyway. There are other things that will pop those bubbles as well.
I'm still waiting for parts to arrive for my motor home. I hope it will be fixed, tomorrow.
I'm hoping to get out of here by April.
That will give me a chance to make money shoveling snow and time to get the motor home fixed.
I'm still concerned about the fuel gauges. I want to know how much fuel I have in the tanks if I'm traveling out West.
It's coming along too slowly for me. I'm getting anxious.
I told my counselor that I would send messages to 5 women at OK cupid and Survivalist Singles. I'm not looking forward to it. I haven't had much contact with women for the last 40 or so years. They all seem so content with their black guys. Oh well. I don't think I will encourage them much. I'll start my message with saying that I've been defined by my mental illness and poverty. That's the truth. That should keep them away.

Watching the Patriot Nurse

I was just, now watching the"Patriot Nurse" on YouTube. She is starting to panic. She pointed out that what was happening in Dallas has her thinking that things will be out of control (as far as Ebola is concerned) very soon.
I think the way that Ebola in Texas has been handled make me use the word cluster- f--k. It almost looks to me like they are trying to spread it. It makes me wonder if there is something to the idea that the ruling class is trying to get rid of the rest of us.
Look up Agenda 21 on Google to get my drift. That's supposed to be the name of a UN agenda that has the UN destroying 90% of the human population to make things better for those who survive.
I think it's bogus but there are times that it seems logical. I think the reason I feel that it is bogus is that I have a hard time thinking that people could be so evil, but after all we bombed Japan with atomic bombs after they made it clear that they wanted to surrender. People are evil. Don't underestimate evil.
I'm thinking about how I can bug out in my present location. My apartment is too crowded to be safe from germs. Maybe I can find a trailer park near LaCrosse.
After I get the shocks and fuel tanks fixed I suppose I could head out West and look for gold. I may have to leave a bit earlier than I wanted to but that's life. It never works out the way you thought it would.
I'm going to an auction, tomorrow. I'm hoping to pick up some bug out stuff. I'll have to write a check that will clear Monday, so I'll have some money by then.
Go watch Patriot Nurse. It's time to get serious about bugging out.

My Vehicles get no Respect

Every time I take my van to Dan's to have work done on it he makes sure to ask if I really want to spend that kind of money on such an old vehicle.
The same thing happened with my motor home. The owner of the truck repair shop didn't believe that it made any sense to repair such an old POS. He told me to go to another place.
If I was rich, I wouldn't have these troubles. A new vehicle would work and everyone would presume that I had plenty of money to repair whatever needs repair.
I see a lot of writings that say you shouldn't let your mental illness define you.
I say "hogwash"; mental illness and poverty do define you whether you want it to or not.
Every decision I make is based on how little money I have and the limitations that are laid on me due to my diagnosis.
I haven't been to a movie for the last 3 years because I can not afford the ticket and the popcorn. The only times I go to a restaurant that you have to leave a tip for is when Jim and Sherry take me to a birthday meal. I get my food at the church's food pantry and I settle for whatever they have. I live in the cheapest, dumpiest place in Decorah; and I'm trying to move into a 40 year old motor home.
I just had to get that crap off of my mind.
Back to Ebola. Stefan Molyneux had another good vlog about Ebola on YouTube, again. He also had a vlog about being a victim. I encourage you to watch both of them.
Shortly after my last blog somebody straighten out the numbers on Ebola, and the high numbers are apparently the correct ones. The last I saw, the number of cases is around 8500 with around 4000 deaths.
In his recent vlog about Ebola, Stefan talked about some of the stupid things that health care professionals keep doing around Ebola patients. I urge you to watch his vlog.
I'm thinking about cutting back on viewing YouTube videos.
Most of the doom and gloomer financial videos are getting a bit repetitive. If the world's economy doesn't collapse this Fall or Winter I'll be quite disappointed with them. I've bought all the gold, silver, and food that I can afford. I don't know how to get more prepared for the inevitable collapse. I'm trying to get my motor home running so I can head off to Canada or somewhere.
It's all just too expensive. Maybe I could rent Jim's place and forage for nuts and trap squirrels.
Well, I've got to go and try to track down an old Bitcoin purchase from 2010. If I find the right information I might be rich.

They're Playing with the Numbers

Whoever they are (probably the Mainstream Media), they are messing with the numbers on Ebola.
Yesterday, most sources were saying that there were 3000 cases with 1500 deaths. Only one source said that it was up to 7000 cases with 3000 deaths.
Today the numbers are the high ones.
 I don't know what is going on. It looks like somebody doesn't want us to know how bad it really is.
The whole world is watching these numbers; wondering how long we all have to live. It seems like somebody could try to get it right. That's just the way it looks to me.
I don't suppose any of us are getting an accurate vision of what is really happening with Ebola. If we did it would probably collapse the economy. Which, from what is see of the market today, may be that is what's happening anyway.
That brings me to a financial topic. I'm doing well with Bitcoin, gold and silver, today. I don't know what I did right but everything I own is going up. If I was to sell everything today, I would be ahead of yesterday by about $100. I feel good about that, but what I'm investing in basically is betting against the rest of the world's economy. So maybe that's not so good after all.
I might get back to this post, yet today. I just don't feel too inspired, right now.

Not much Happening

I don't really feel very inspired, tonight. I'm at the Co-op; drinking coffee; and trying to come up with something to blog about.
The guy who went to the hospital in Washington D.C. with Ebola symptoms turned out to not have Ebola. Since he was from Nigeria it would have indicated that Nigeria was not Ebola-free if he had it. Had he turned out to be positive I would have been shouting from the roof tops about the "sky falling".
It was good news that he wasn't positive; now we might have another 6 months or so before 90% of the world's population dies. I think that might make the difference between 2 and 3 years before we're all doomed.
Maybe I can get my motor home out of the shop and out to California before the Ebola outbreak gets here. I might not make it before the financial collapse.
Today, the market went down 272 points. I think it is anticipating the Ebola thing. Maybe it has to do with China's economy slowing down or ISIS, or the Ukraine crisis. I still think that it's Ebola driving down the market. Only time will tell. At least gold isn't collapsing. In fact, I kind of hope gold and silver go down some more so I can buy more.
It's almost 8:00 and the Co-op closes, soon.

Still Trying to Figure out how bad it really is

I'm still trying to figure out how bad the Ebola outbreak really is.
Most of the time I feel that 90% of the human race will die out in the next 2 or so years. That will happen if it proceeds at the exponential rate that it has been proceeding at.
An hour or so ago, I was watching a doctor on the Internet. He was talking about how hard it was to spread it. He was very compelling. Listening to him, made me think that there was nothing to worry about in the United States.
I have my doubts. I remember watching a very compelling doctor say that he wouldn't be afraid of sitting next to an Ebola victim on an airplane. Two weeks later the person who sat next to Patrick Sawyer (the Ebola victim who flew from Liberia to Nigeria) ended up dead.
I have my doubts about what people say about how tame this disease is.
There are two things going on now that are drawing my attention. The first is how much Ebola is spreading in Dallas, Texas. The guy spreading it there had upwards of 8 days to have spread it. Maybe he stayed at home and never did get out. If he got out and it's easier to spread than the authorities are telling us, there might be a lot more cases, there.
More important, however, might be the new, potential, case in Washington D.C.
The person who is being tested for Ebola came from Nigeria. If he has it, it means that the disease is being spread through Nigeria a lot more than we are being told. The Nigerian authorities are saying that it's been contained. If this person tests positive we have to wonder if it's spreading throughout Lagos. That is a city of between 21 and 22 million people. That implies that it's a lot more widespread than is now acknowledged.
Another thing I'm concerned about it the spread of another strain of Ebola in the Congo. Like I said, it's a different strain. It seems to be spreading faster than the first strain. I also have to wonder if a person can get both strains. What would that do to the mortality rate?
I haven't heard much about that, lately. Everyone is so focused on the outbreak in Dallas that nobody is paying attention to this new outbreak.

I was just talking with Gretchen at the Co-op about Ebola. I have her converted into a state of total paranoia. It made my day.

It's Worse Than I Thought

If you are interested in what's happening with the Ebola outbreak go to Stefan Molyneux's YouTube channel and watch is vlog about Ebola in Texas. It's eye-opening.
After listening to Stefan I'm convinced that I've been downplaying the risk of Ebola in the United States. It's here and we don't know how bad it is, yet.
The best I can tell you is to go to Stefan's vlog and see what he has to say.
The stock market seemed to shrug off Ebola, today. I guess that the talking heads are talking the risk down. Yesterday the market moved down by 238 points; today there wasn't much of a move at all. It will be interesting to see how the market responds if there is more bad news about Ebola in America.
This might cause the crash that so many of us have been expecting.
I talk to Gary about buying silver on a leveraged basis. He talked me out of it. I always lose when I use margin. I never seem to learn.
Of course, since I'm not about to do it; it will turn out to be the smartest thing I could have done in the last decade. Oh, well.
It's supposed to snow, this weekend. I hope it snows enough to shovel it. I've got three places I shovel for, so I could make a lot of money this Saturday.
I doubt that it will accumulate enough to actually shovel. I'll have to get up early Saturday morning and check it out.
Well, go to Stefan's YouTube channel. He always has something to talk about and he was in rare form tonight.
On that I'll sign off.

Lots of Ebola News Today

The stock market went down over 230 points, today. I think it was mainly due to the Ebola news about the man in Dallas who was diagnosed with it.
The market is a lot smarter than the people who talk about it. I saw someone today say that there was a lot of bad news and he felt that the market reacted in a rather restrained manner.
I think the people with the inside information are getting out as best they can. Ebola may affect travel and dining out and a myriad of other things I haven't thought of, yet. If I had stocks I would be selling, now.
I'll be watching how fast it spreads in the Dallas area. I noticed that the person who came down with it was in contact with 5 children. If they get it and play with other children it could spread a lot faster than people think it will.
The common opinion is that it won't spread as much in the United States compared with Africa. I think it might spread faster, here. We have a lot more people traveling all over the place, here. It might get to all corners of the country if people get on planes with it.
Anyway, I'll be watching the stock market and I'll be watching for news of new cases.
I'm getting work done on my motor home. Dave (the guy working on it) had to go to Chicago for a few days. At least he got some things done before he left. I still need to find out if the furnace and the water heater work. Those are the main things.
I should be ready to bug out in a couple of weeks, maximum.
I might get back to this blog later, tonight.
