Republicans tell Obama to approve mosquito spraying in Puerto Rico or face spread of Zika crisis

The White House should drop its objections to a $1.1 billion plan to combat the Zika virus if it really wants Puerto Rico to start spraying for disease-carrying mosquitoes, congressional Republicans said Monday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Environmental Protection Agency last week told the island territory to ramp up its aerial bug-killing efforts because Zika is spreading on its own there and could start infecting dozens of pregnant women per day.

The CDC said it will help the island set up the type of mosquito control unit that vulnerable parts of the U.S. mainland have, while spending $500,000 to help Puerto Ricans dispose of old tires where mosquitoes breed.

    Ole Bathhouse Barry isn’t going to worry about any mosquitos that could help put him in good stead with a UN objective, such as the first one inscribed on the Georgia Guidestones, population reduction.

    The Georgia Guidestones is a granite monument erected in 1980 in Elbert County, Georgia, in the United States. A set of 10 guidelines is inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient language scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

    The first of the “new 10 commandments” on the infamous Georgia Guidestones states the following….“Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.”

    Current population is over 7 billion.

    CNN Founder Ted Turner would go even farther….“A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”

    Dave Foreman, the co-founder of Earth First, says that reducing our population down to 100 million is one of his three main goals…. “My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”

    Sadly, this kind of thought is being “taught” at major U.S. universities.

      Turner and Foreman each appear to have some sort of God complex, and a very inflated opinion of their own worth. I say if they want so badly to “thin the herd”, we start with them.

    Well since we did bail them out and keep handing out to these gutter rats, all because their Gov. Garcia Padilla lived like a king and pi$$ed away their money, and the people their should hang the POS in the streets! We bailed out a country of losers with money we did NOT HAVE!! It was called Super Charpter 9!!
