Some families affected by Ebola in Liberia pay bribes to keep the bodies

1

Health workers scrambling to contain the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia now have to contend with an outbreak of corruption among those detailed to collect the bodies of victims.

The Wall Street Journal reports that retrieval are accepting bribes from families of Ebola victims to issue death certificates that say their loved ones died of other causes, allowing them to keep their bodies for a traditional burial.

“The family says the person is not an Ebola patient, and [the retrieval team] pull them away from the other people,” Vincent Chounse, a community outreach worker on the outskirts of Monrovia, told the paper. “Then they say, ‘We can give you a certificate from the Ministry of Health that it wasn’t Ebola.‘ Sometimes it is $40. Sometimes it is $50. … Then they offer bags  to them and [the family] carry on their own thing.” A teenager in Montserrado told the Journal he saw the father of his neighbor pay $150 for a certificate that said his son’s corpse was Ebola-free.

“Quote of the Day”

ROMNEY: “I cannot predict precisely what the rate would be at the end of one year. I can tell you that over a period of four years, by a virtue of the polices that we put in place, we get the unemployment rate down to 6 percent, perhaps a little lower.”

~~~

Yep, Romney said that if he were elected, and given a chance to implement his bold economic vision, freeing the nation of the scourge that is Obama’s crushing agenda, the unemployment rate would drop to “6 percent” – maybe even “a little lower” – by the end of 2016.
Of course, President Obama defeated Romney with relative ease, leaving Americans with economic policies that helped push the unemployment rate to 5.9% – in the middle of 2014, more than two full years ahead of Romney’s goal.

Dr. Ben Carson – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

1

Ben Carson, the former pediatric neurosurgeon who’s building a following among conservatives, says the “likelihood is strong” that he’ll mount a presidential bid in 2016 – that is, if elections actually take place.

On Fox News Radio last week, Carson suggested elections may not take place two years from now because “there may be so much anarchy going on.”

He then went on to repeat his 2016 Campaign slogan, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!”, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!”.

BREAKING NEWS: Furious Obama Says Calls to Putin Going Straight to Voice Mail

Via: David Borowitz – New Yorker

In what he called “a provocative and defiant act,” President Obama charged on Tuesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin has started letting his calls go directly to voice mail.

Speaking at the White House before this week’s NATO summit, a visibly furious Obama said that Putin’s new practice of letting his calls go straight to voice mail “hampers our ability to discuss the future of Ukraine and other important issues going forward.”

Having left dozens of voice mails for the Russian President, Obama said that he tried to reach him via e-mail on Monday night but received an out-of-office auto reply.

“Given what he has been up to in Ukraine over the past few weeks, I find it impossible believe he has been out of the office,” Obama said.

The President hinted that Putin’s failure to respond to his voice mails could result in additional sanctions and signaled that he did not intend to call the Russian President again. “I have left my last voice mail for him,” he said, adding that the last time he called Putin his mailbox was full.
