    Do we expect Africa to come unglued over disasters in USA?

    You would think the mess in Africa spreading to the rest of the world would make a few people wake up and realize that “what happens over there” DOES matter and DOES affect us. But it probably won’t. We’ll see some more whining about how Obama failed in Texas, despite constant “keep Washington out of Texas” blather, we’ll see some more “protect us CDC”, and then more budget cuts for CDC, we’ll see more rhetoric about “being smarter”, until finally we get what being stupid always gets, that big freaking smack in the face by reality. Ever since the swine flu fizzled in the 80’s, we’ve had this cadre of idiots swearing “IT CAN”T HAPPEN HERE". Well, it CAN, it’s highly unlikely to be Ebola for the USA, but we are setting ourselves up for one helluva epidemic. If I was a betting man, I’d bet on Brazilian Purperic Fever being the gift that keeps on giving. We’ll see.

    A perfect opportunity for Republicans to raise money by scaring people about Ebola.

    On average, the FLU kills more than 20,000 Americans yearly.

    Why aren’t you screaming in terror?

    Hey, the US has contributed so much to the fight against Ebola, we’re comprable to Cuba! http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/20/opinion/cubas-impressive-role-on-ebola.html

    I’m a LOT more worried about rabies potential, as two bats have been found in my county in the last few months that were rabid, and one bit a guy, who was immediatly treated and innoculated.

    Yeah, it’s nice to know we’ve gone from “USA #1” to “USA: On par with Cuba!”.

    It’s a simple answer: Ebola was “over there” killing “THOSE people” so he didn’t care. Now that he’s at risk, it’s actually important!

    While it is understandable for people to connect emotionally to the sufferings of their own countrymen I believe that the concern over Ebola is driven more by fear over what it might do if it were to wildly spread across the world than by horror over what it is doing to its current victims.

    Which is why I recall quite a bit of concern over Ebola back when it was only afflicting Africans. And why a lot of the concern now is over the CDC’s poor handling of the few Ebola cases we have had in the United states.
