    I hope they prosecute her to the full extent of the law if it is discovered that she infects anyone. This is an ethical issue – She reaps the reward of freedom of mobility at the very real risk of making someone else in her community sick.

    I don’t think it’s too much to ask her to keep to herself in her home until the 21 days (or whatever) have passed.

    She is taking a foolish risk.

    Your absolutely correct.

    Treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone for the aid organization Doctors Without Borders is an entitled privilege ordinary persons as ourselves can only dream about doing.

    What a witch, flaunting that in our face by asking to be given the same freedom we all have.

    I think she’s great. She did a job few others would volunteer for. The medical experts don’t think a quarantine is needed. You just have a jerk governor who needed a photo op at election time. Now if they are really stupid they will have the gestapo haul her off to jail while hundreds of journalists take pictures and write stories. They will achieve the status of super jerks.

    Since a nurse in Dallas died from Ebola contacted while wearing the full protected gear, this is clearly a disease that is much worse than the lies the administration keeps telling us. (And since the President hugged someone with Ebola, that’s probably why the Secret Service is too afraid to keep anyone from running into the White House.)


    If those wearing full protective gear can easily catch Ebola, and since everyone who catches it dies, we need to quarantine everyone from any African cities like Dallas or New York and everyone who ever flew on the same airline as anyone from any of those cities.

    @Michael – Not to put too fine a point on it but she wasn’t wearing full protective gear. They didn’t have the full protection that was advocated by the CDC because it wasn’t available.

    I don’t think the Administration is lying either. They have many reasons to try to downplay the danger both selfish and altruistic. People run to the Conservative party when they feel threatened so it is in his best interest to convince everybody that the government has this under control. And for the most part they do…so far. Also you don’t want mobs driving the potiential sick out of town.

    " Also you don’t want mobs driving the potiential sick out of town."
    But there is a VERY fine line between that figurative notion and your " don’t think it’s too much to ask her to keep to herself in her home."
    The only difference is you don’t want here in your personal space but you’re okay with denying her the same liberties you enjoy simply because she was altruistic.
    How about this for a corollary, this kind and generous woman engaged in risky behavior by utilizing her skills and education to help sick people. So you want to deny her her constitutional right to liberty and pursuit of happiness by confining her to her home. Well I’m sure you enjoy a libation from time to time. That is risky behavior because like she could become ill with a horrible disease, you could become drunk and then drive, so when you have a beer or a glass of wine or a shot of whiskey, how about we quarantine you to your home for a few days, until we are sure you won’t develop alcoholism?
    .
    You right to feel secure in your person does not negate her right to her liberty and freedom. If you are scare that she might infect you, then you stay home, you self-quarantine for the 21 days.
    .
    for someone who is always espousing hatred for government, you sure are happy to demand gubmint do sumpin’ when you want gubmint to “protect” you. When govement is protecting the rights of citizens from abuses and misdeed of others, government bad. When government is suppressing the rights of others to make you feel safe, government good. Hypocrisy.

    Catalino joins the long line of panicky pants-wetter idiots on the right. Why are you so allergic to expert opinion? Because you aren’t a scientist? You do know that there are scientists, right? You can ask them for facts instead of reacting with cowardice, ignorance, and fear? No one is going to get ebola from Kaci. She’s not contagious.

    It somewhat puzzles me that people who are heroic enough to go to a country having very poor living conditions and unselfishly expose themselves to a virulent disease would be so selfish as to not impose upon themselves the inconvenience of quarantine. Admittedly, the possibility of Ms Hickox having contracted Ebola is low and the probability of infecting someone else is even lower, but the same could have been said about the Dallas nurse that contracted the disease while working in much better conditions than Ms. Hickox did. Since Ms. Hickox has seen first hand the devastation of Ebola, I can see no reason why Ms. Hickox would not want to segregate herself and reduce the chances of spread to zero.

    One does not see all the doctors who treated Ebola in the US guaranteed. Why pick on her except for political gain.

    Imagine that! She knows more about ebola than a politician does so you call her names.

    @SizeofPea – I have never espoused hatred for the government . I love our Democracy and decry anyone trying to take it away from us(Usually by bits and pieces in the name of expedience for one party or the other). As for asking the government to do something – This is one area where the Federal Government has constitutional Jurisdiction. Keeping our borders safe is completely within the Federal Government’s purview.

    And to take your metaphor of the drunk driver to the next level – We arrest people simply for drunk driving. In theory we are protecting people from someone dangerous even before they have harmed anyone. Think about it – The guy driving down the road drunk hasn’t hurt anyone UNTIL he runs into somebody but we arrest him simply for being behind the wheel and a high BAC because we know he has a much higher potential for harming someone then the sober guy driving the same vehicle.

    There is no hypocracy here at all. If I had travelled to one of those countries and come in contact with Ebola – I would voluntarily keep myself separate from the people in my community because I would be afraid of harming my friends and neighbors. But here you now have a Doctor in New York and a Nurse in Maine who want to assert their right to free mobility knowing that they have a much higher potential for giving Ebola to their neighbor then those of us who haven’t journeyed in those regions.

    Some want to put their fear of disease in bondage, somehow. She is no Typhoid Mary, but has a clean bill of health.

    Sadly there is political gain to be had by creating false threats. The public is naive and trusts what they hear from their favorite TV / Radio personality.. which have their own agendas.
