Nothing to Worry About!
Still no word on Ebola training. Meanwhile, in the real world, Ebola has managed to make the jump from a patient to a health professional in Spain:
- A nursing auxiliary in Madrid has tested positive for Ebola after treating a patient in the Spanish capital, according to Spanish newspaper El Pais. The case is believed to be first in which a person contracts Ebola from a source outside of Africa.
These are the folks with all the protective gear, procedures and protocols. Here in the USA, no one knows exactly how many people were exposed to the disease:
- A homeless man who rode in the ambulance directly after Thomas Eric Duncan, the Dallas Ebola patient, was found by police. Although the man will be taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital to be monitored, it is unknown if he came in contact with others while on the loose.
That's the ambulance that stayed in service for multiple days after Duncan rode in it. But the government will protect us, right?
- “Our political class is not comfortable with the idea of using border control and immigration law to protect Americans,” immigration expert Mark Krikorian told Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot Radio. “They don’t really like the idea of keeping out people who want to come here.”
And why can't we cut off flights to the USA from Ebola stricken countries? CNN has a guest who claims that same old bugaboo - Racism!
- An author on Anderson Cooper’s CNN program Thursday said the United States is uniquely obligated to maintain air links with the Ebola-ridden nation of Liberia, claiming it would be immoral to quarantine a nation created through “American slavery.”
Yup - because of a practice outlawed for over 150 years, America must now forgo even the simplest of precautions lest the world think badly of us. And it wouldn't be a party without a cult of victimhood springing up:
- Residents in the Vickery Meadow neighborhood of Dallas are living near the epicenter of the Ebola scare in North Texas. Now, they say they’re facing a different challenge — discrimination.
- On Monday Texas Governor Rick Perry dismissed the notion that a travel ban from Ebola-afflicted nations would be an effective step to prevent a viral outbreak in the United States. Perry's comments echo those of the Obama Administration; over the past week the CDC has repeatedly refused to support banning flights from countries affected by Ebola.
- CDC Spokesman Dave Daigle recently admitted that Ebola screening for airplane passengers flying from West Africa to the U.S. is inadequate. He said, "I think he [Duncan] got on the plane asymptomatic, without any symptoms whatsoever… the symptoms occurred after he landed or after he arrived in the US so it’s very difficult to prevent that. I mean the viruses don't respect borders."
The entire Obama administration doesn't respect borders, fool. And everyone knows the viruses need a host to travel and cross those same borders. Assholes one and all.
