    This indeed has reached the absurd, well from the beginning. All I can hear from my nation is the clucking from the hen houses. How did this happen to our national spine? Right, the chickenhawks ate ’em…

    Chicken hawks? Probably Crows. Lots of cawing and no moral fiber.

    So people are cowards for not wanting to catch Ebola? Sorry, but I have no desire to die what is a horrible death. Or worse yet have to watch one of my loved ones die that way.

    I’ll admit. I was concerned about the flight at first. But I went back and looked at some of the procedures and specifics about the transport and I’m fine with it now. Yes, people should do research. But frankly, calling them cowards isn’t the way to motivate that.

    This issue is going to become like the border children: one that is so politicized and polarized by the Red and Blue Kool Aid Kults that there’s absolutely no room for intelligent discussion or a rational examination. Please don’t buy into it. You’re a better and more intelligent poster than that.

    ^Warjoski: My Uncle and Father-in-Law fought in the Battle of the Bulge (and were both wounded). My dad was 4-F, but did “his bit” on the home front. I was in Viet Nam, My son in Iraq and elsewhere, fighting for this nation Friends served in the Peace Corps and risked their lives overseas to promote and protect this nation in “other ways”.


    The average American today seems to think just reading about Ebola, or Iraq, on their cell phones, while with Cheney in a secure, undisclosed location, is “courage”.


    We who served, whether in war or elsewhere, are discouraged, and disgusted, by all the fear in this country, especially from those most ready to reject people in need, while letting someone else fight their literal wars for them.

    I’ll concede the points about our leadership’s example being discouraging. And I’ll agree that there is a good percentage of the population that is disconnected from certain realities. Hashtag activisim is not activisim.

    My point is this though: you’re not going to change anyone’s tune by waving a finger at them and telling them you’re disgusted with them. Look at all the name calling and self righteous indignation that goes on this board all the time. Has it changed anyone’s mind about anything?

    The border kids has been politicized so much it’s no longer about those kids. It’s about my side being right and your side being wrong. The kids have gotten lost in the shuffle. The same thing is now happening to the Ebola patients.

    Thank you for all you and your family have done for this country. I mean that. I can’t and won’t try to imagine what you have all gone though. None of that changes the fact that standing around name calling isn’t going to do anything add more fuel to a pointless debate. I’m refering to the whole ‘Red v. Blue’ debate. Not the Ebola or Border Kids situation.

    While I was researching something for your cheering section there, I came across this:

    http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/members-congress-demand-obama-administration-classify-ft-hood/story?id=18493746

    It’s about the Fort Hood situation. If I recall correctly, the whole ‘workplace violence’ vs. ‘terrorism’ issue really became politicized. So much so that one side would have lost face and so battened down the hatches. And the other side wasn’t going to lighten up because they thought they smelled blood. We had a lot of name calling and such.

    And who paid the price for it? Those who got shot.

    ^My statement had nothing to do with politics, it had to do with acceptable levels of ignorance, and the rejection of true courage to stand up for humanity, and true morality, with courage, in our current self-centered society.

    Look at it this way, would YOU want to “cavity search” an Ebola victim?
