“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

American environmentalists are partially to blame for Zika's rapid spread

Amid the mosquito-borne Zika virus spreading now to 50 countries, there is a rising call to move the Rio Olympics to avoid further spreading the disease. (logically it is unwise to invite people from every country in the world to a hotbed of infectious disease, then send them home to infect their home countries. Um, can you say pandemic?)

So far over 4000 babies, the most susceptible, have been born with microcephaly and a few adults have died. Critics blame the Brazilian government for not better controlling the mosquito population.

I have one acronym for you sanctimonious critics......DDT!

The most efficient and potent mosquito control chemical ever invented is kept on the sidelines of the war on mosquito-borne disease because of a ridiculous, poorly done study by a flaky environmentalist Rachel Carson and then FDA head and Greenpeace officer Bill Ruckelshaus who banned it solely because of Carson's stupid book, "Silent Spring".

The smug sanctimony of American environmentalists has condemned millions of third-world peasants to death, disease, and birth defects.

I think the enviros might view this not as a flaw, but a benefit of the ban. The most extreme of them openly call for human extinction.

Yeah, you're right about that.
