    And we just had a conference in Washington DC full of folks from regions near the outbreak. Our government is either too stupid or too full of hubris to continue to exist. Too bad they seem determined to take the citizenry down with them.

    Press is definitely attempting to convince the public that there is nothing to worry about. Yesterday we started hearing about all the people who have been quarantined after coming back to the USA from Africa. What is next? The first USA case?

    Sure. They’ll quarantine people with a mostly fatal disease like Ebola, but not AIDS… Maybe if they’d done that back in the 80’s, not so many people would have been affected?

    Well, when your neighbors start spewing vile liquids out of all their bodily cavities, can the Apocalypse be far away?

    Maybe the Koch Brothers will open a Tea Party Disease Research Clinic for the good of all Humankind, eh? Maybe Rushbo and the Sean Fox News will pony up to find a cure, eh, like they did with AIDS, smallpox, typhoid and the Black Death, eh? Eh, Mr. Ramirez?
    -
    But very most likely they won’t. Meaning the US Government – and the scientists and medical folk sponsored by the US Government – will have to take on the task of combating and curing Ebola.
    -
    Why? Because that’s what a Government of the People, by the People and for the People is SUPPOSED to do. Go ahead, Mr. Ramirez; Toon it up for us: Visualize SOCIALISM AT WORK with all the pimply horror you can manage.

    Vote vote vote in November.

    Meanwhile, in Toledo that can’t drink or bath in the water because of the alga bloom in Lake Erie, and there’s an outbreak of flesh eating bacteria in the Chesapeake bay.

    But let’s scream about one case of a disease affecting one person under quarantine in Atlanta.

    Some strains have had a 90% mortality rate. Purposely bringing it here is simply idiocy. But then, it’s the gummint, so par for the course.

    You would think that tropical disease experts in Africa would be attentive to proper procedures to avoid exposure to a disease like ebola, especially since it is supposedly transmitted solely via bodily fluids. How come these experts are contracting the disease? And why should we assume the experts in Atlanta will be more capable of containing the contagion?

    This is just what we need. Another “educated” and “rational” individual adding to the fear and paranoia.

    Wow, the right wing is really paranoid.

    Obviously the answer is to cut funding to more federal health departments and give the money to rich people.

    Do any of the idiots worried about Ebola, or immigrants, realize they’re at far greater danger from MERSA, or other things commonly seen IN the U.S.?? Wan’na play on the road with some moron texting on his cell phone?? How about Salmonella or simple E.coli??

    BTW: read the World Health Organization Fact Sheet #103 from April of this year, and relax a little, for crying out loud!

    Another BTW: Ebola deaths 1976-2012 = 2,386. Deaths from Malaria, just in 2012 = 627,000. A matter of perspective, as well as transmission risk.

    ^Again, from initial to 2012, only 2,386 Ebola deaths, MERSA and distracted driving beat that, hands down.
