Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell is trying to get a restraining order to block the ashes of an Ebola victim's possessions from being buried in Louisiana.
Caldwell began the process after news broke that the ashes of the possessions of Thomas Eric Duncan, the only man to die of Ebola in the United States were to be buried at a Louisiana landfill. “We certainly share sadness and compassion for those who have lost their lives and loved ones to this terrible virus,” Caldwell says, “but the health and safety of our Louisiana citizens is our top priority.”
Reportedly, six truckloads of potentially contaminated possessions were incinerated in Port Arthur, Texas. Those ashes were supposed to be making their way to a landfill in Carlyss, Louisiana.
The Attorney General's office expects the application to be filed on Monday, and they are also sending a letter to Texas state and federal officials, along with various private contractors, demanding additional information about the handling of the Ebola infected ashes.
Dear moron: the incinerated ashes of inanimate objects are not a viable source of Ebola infection. You cannot get Ebola from a truckload of burnt, cremated, incinerated non-human remains. That's "You can get AIDS from a toilet seat!" level of stupidity, only if the toilet seat was also on fire and buried in a landfill.
Do you know what diseases you can get from a truckload of incinerated personal objects? Nothing, because it has been incinerated, you gigantic bloviating bowl of Kellogg's Idiot Flakes. What exactly do you think is going to happen, that the ashes are going to rise up out of the goddamn bayou as an Ash Golem and then give everyone Ebola in their shrimp etouffee while infecting an army of undead Ebolagators that bite people in half and then give them Ebola because being bitten in half by an undead alligator is not bad enough so ha ha ha screw you now you have Ebola too? Does this qualify me as the next Attorney General down there now?
Please stop being Louisiana's Attorney General immediately. They deserve to be represented by someone who isn't a mouth-breathing pinecone-brained paint-chip eating lummox named "Buddy".
