100 medical staff infected, over 700 dead. Bring them to the U.S. What could go wrong ?

The article talks about the rigorous safety provisions required. Most of the medical staff are African. Notorious for not following safety provisions, sterilization, etc.

I saw a photo showing a medical staff worker in full protective turnout alongside an African female "caregiver" in only gloves and her civilian clothes.

That said, I see nothing in this article about bringing more victims to America.

So our never wrong presidente imports Ebola to America starting Monday. There’s nothing like an incurable, highly infectious disease to add to our woes.

I´m not worried about the disease.

I´m worried about a CDC that has been found to be so negligent that smallpox was found stored in a broom closet.

What´s next? The Plague?

Oh, wait .. that´s happened, too ..

What is stopping it from walking across our border? That is a scary thought. In my darkest tinfoil hat moments, I wonder if our government would look the other way. They certainly have no qualms about the open border and the thousands that slip through undected. Can you imagine the panic and chaos that would result? I do not trust the government on anything. If they are willing to release thousands in the country with known communicable diseases, they already are willfully negligent and dangerously unconcerned.

This Administration doesn´t exactly have a great track record for competence and controls. In ANYTHING. So why should we be reassured by their explanations?

Given the long incubation period of Ebola it could easily spread across our country by various carriers, including anyone coming in unscreened across our wide open southern border. No, this is a potential disaster no matter what they say to calm our fears.

Another win-win for the despicable Democrats. It will cost hugely in money and suffering/death. It will cause untold anxiety and unrest in our population.. meeting some of the Alinsky criteria.. on the way to "fundamental(a Muslim word) change" for America.

How did these two care givers contract Ebola ? If they know how it spreads why weren´t precautions taken by them. How do we know that this won´t happen here? Why was this brought to our country? Between this and the little "kids?" With all their borne deceased that they carry without even being checked out and vaccines we are pretty much in a danger zone any more.

All I know is this: we have 25yo female in a semi-isolation room (we´re out of true neg airflow rooms for pts)... she´s just off a flight from the Dominican Republic last night. Threw up blood all over plane, has had escalating symptoms for days, bleeding from every orifice, and her mother insisted she get on a plane and come here. She came from a visit to her village with NO running water, sanitation. Mom and her daughter´s two babies are now sick and we can´t locate them. CDC called, and we´re waiting. She has something very contagious and unusual and she spread it all over that flight last night. This will be fun.

In starkest terms, the disease must burn itself out. For that to happen,there can be no contact for 21 days. Even after the patient is dead, contact with the body or any of its bodily fluids can transmit the disease. As usual, Tom Clancy has envisioned Ebola being used as a weapon against the US. They beat it by banning all travel. As you can imagine, that doesn´t go over well with Americans.

Just to kick this to the top again if anyone is still paying ATTENTION...we still do not know what this girl has, she has not stopped bleeding, her eyes are profusely bloodshot, she stopped vomiting blood today but continues to send it out every other way. Eyes, bladder, anal, nasal. mom is not to be found anywhere tho docs want her admitted. CDC came. Fevers, rash, LFTs elevated, no food or H20 kept down since flight from her country. yesterday, someone died after getting off a plane from Sierra Leone in Gatwick in London. Vomiting blood after appearing on flight according to lay people asymptomatic...then just died.

Current Congress might be
history’s worst at passing laws
New York Post, by Marisa Schultz    Original Article
Posted By: harleynyc- 9/1/2014 8:55:14 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.

Jerry Seinfeld freaks out after

Jerry Seinfeld exchanged words with another motorist in the Hamptons on Monday after she nearly backed into his prized wheels. The funnyman was sitting on a bench in East Hampton, across the street from his rare 1973 Porsche 911 RSR, when he spotted another car backing up to park in front his vehicle. But as that car got a little too close for Seinfeld’s comfort, he ran across the street and yelled at the 60-year-old female motorist to stop. The woman appeared to be frightened as she hit the brakes, and stepped out of her vehicle momentarily to hear Seinfeld’s angry words.

Jimmy Carter calls for

Former president Jimmy Carter called on the West to recognize the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas as a legitimate "political actor" that represents the bulk of the Palestinian population. Carter made the comments in an article he co-wrote with former Irish president Mary Robinson in a new issue of Foreign Policy magazine. It was published as a cease-fire took hold Tuesday after four weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas, which governs Gaza. In a sharply worded rebuke to Israel, Carter and Robinson said, "There is no humane or legal justification for the way the Israeli Defense Forces are conducting this war."

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
