    Right, Henry. We should abolish the CDC. Also, the Surgeon General (well, the acting one), the EPA, the NIH, the FDA, and all them other business stranglin’ regulation enforcin’ groups.
    -
    Then we should stand back and let the free market provide the solution to this Ebola problem.

    In dealing with the media, they need to indeed eliminate the confusion in the minds of the media and critics who know nothing about the medical facts, but consider their views absolute fact, dispite what that danged “Government Agency” has to say about it. Talking to idiots means they have to really lower their lingusitc skills, and speak like they’re talking to chimps to be understood. (No insult intended to chimps.)

    Your hero, Dr Frieden, actually told his interviewer that you couldn’t catch Ebola by riding on a bus unless, of course, you were sitting next to an Ebola infected person who sneezed on you. This is the sort of clearly expressed information we need to calm the public. Yeah, right!

    Yes, the CDC has not covered itself in glory in its response to this disease.

    The free market will make Ebola drugs as soon as they are assured a profit.

    Never would have been a problem except for all those darn regulations and political correctness’s.

    If institutions were banned for spreading confusion, there’d be no more Fox “News”

    dzw: you of course take out of context, and fail to mention he also stated that such an experience is a remote possibility for spreading the disease, and it would still be unlikely, even if the spittle DID go in your mouth, you’d come down with Ebola, and that was a cough, not just a sneeze.. Yes, a small failure with a highly infectious patient in the hospital is a failure, but as I noted, confusing the facts is what drives the panic with the ignorant.

    @dtroutma

    Out of context? BS! One one hand he claimed it was safe, then describes how you could catch Ebola. The clown did not speak clearly. His lack of clarity is my complaint.

    Every year they develop and produce a variant vaccine for influenza, to attack specific strains, usually newly discovered. Yes, sometimes it takes a long time to find the key to a vaccine, but more often today, not so long as in the “old days” if agencies like CDC are funded. The real trick is how “big pharma” will USE that research, to produce the vaccines, and then make billions in profits; but only if the end product HUGE profits are assured, will “big pharma” even consider creating a new drug or vaccine.


    There’s more profit in producing Viagra than vaccines, boners and boneheads are the companies primary providers.

    “Profit” is not a four-letter word. That is what built this country, not socialism.
