    The Obamanation’s common sense is not in quarantine, it’s been in the morgue for many years.

    It just seems so appropriate that all the most fearful and cowardly are Bush supporters.

    You can thank the fear mongers at Fox for most of that.

    “fearful and cowardly” are not appropriate terms to use here, reflecting your blind acceptance of the (changing) authoritative pronouncements emanating from the CDC. It seems to the majority of the public believes that the best way to prevent the spread of a disease is to isolate the infected population. Duh!

    Then why not isolate & quarantine all people with the flu? It kills tens of thousands per year in the US alone.

    So tell us then, exactly how many Americans here in the USofA have died from Ebola?

    But let’s quarantine anyone who ever left and returned to the country.

    What directions from the CDC have changed? The plan was to limit travelers from affected countries to five airports and screen those passengers. Still the same.
    -
    CDC has said the situation would be made worse if there was a blanket travel ban. Still the same.

    Gov Quinn and Christie would rather make a media splash for their re-election efforts than listen to the medical experts. It is pure self serving politics and is truly disgusting.

    Stantis seems to me to be one of the reality-based conservatives. I don’t always (or even usually) agree with him, but I do recognize that he is generally working from his brain, not his gut.

    " It seems to the majority of the public believes that the best way to prevent the spread of a disease is to isolate the infected population."

    Truly, the best way would be to take the infected population, shoot them dead, and immediately put them in a pit, covered as soon as they were dumped.

    There may be consequences…..

    So far, Ebola has claimed one human life, and the life of one dog in the US. But in the time it takes us to read all of these posts, at least one human in the US will be killed intentionally by a gunshot. And that repeats all day and all night.

    Well done, Mr. Stantis. And thank you, Reppr, for illustrating Mr. Stantis’ point so clearly.

    Good cartoon. Christie and Cuomo are poster boys for post-evidence conservatives (regardless of their party affiliation). Their public health departments were not even consulted, because this was not intended to be a fact-based decision. Greg Ormand in Kansas calls them the “bedwetter caucus.” As Obama and the CDC have been saying all along, it’s not a major threat to America, and we need to do whatever we can to stop it in Africa. The scary part is the defunding of public health programs in red states by “drown the government in the bathtub” conservatives… there’s a reason our only ebola death was in Texas. Missouri is even less prepared for a public health emergency.

    Looks like Obama and the government folks over at the CDC have done a masterful job of stopping Ebola in its tracks.


    Thank you, President Obama and Czar Klain for keeping us all safe.
