Odds ‘n Sods:

Ebola has come to our shores, just a month sooner than I had anticipated. If and when Ebola reaches your county, be prepared to hunker down at home for several months, folks. Keep in mind that you can collect your mail from your mailbox with disposable exam gloves and then put both the gloves and the mail in your microwave oven for 90 seconds to decontaminate them. For any larger scale decontamination, I recommend that you get a HAZARID system. (Available from Readymade Resources and several other online vendors.) I predict that these systems will sell out in less than a week and then there will soon be a back-order queue that will stretch for a year or more. So do not hesitate; buy a decontamination system now. – JWR

CDC confirms first case of Ebola in US – T.J.

Hugh Adds: I fully expected Ebola to make an appearance in the U.S., though I am surprised at how it made it here. As I understand it, Presbyterian Hospital is a hospital serving the middle class and up, which indicates that the person seeking medical help is likely not an indigent. I expected the appearance to occur in a lower economic class, probably from across the southern border. In any case, we will be keeping a close eye on this situation. As JWR stated above, make sure your preps are in order and be prepared.

Controversial Owner Declares Her Store a ‘Muslim-Free’ Zone; Find Out Her Reasoning. – M.J.

Hugh adds: Nope. You can’t do that in the United States. Religion is one of those protected statuses that you cannot use as a basis for discriminating against people. She has the right to refuse service to anyone who she deems dangerous due to their actions or attitudes, and she gets wide latitude in her decisions, due to being a range owner, but she will lose this one. You just can’t refuse service to someone because of their religion any more than you can because of their race.
