    Ebola can be prevented.

    How about those who are predisposed to catching it STOP catching, slaughtering and EATING fruit bats.

    And if we bankrupt Big Pharm so people can continue risky behavior who's going to deal with Bird Flu when it mutates into a airborne contagion ?

    If some how it spreads in the US because of the boneheaded decision to bring those two people back then YES, its Obama's Fault.

    You don't know what you're talking about. NONE of what you just said is true in this issue.

    No we didnt, its not about " medical advancements " its about isolating the carriers and proper quarantine procedures.

    Why we've given wings to Ebola is beyond me.

    Why we've even taken the risk to load up two people infected with the virus on a G3 is a mystery.

    It makes zero sense.
    Concentrating efforts locally for a vaccine is less a risk than waiting for it to get here from an infected traveler, which it eventually would.

    Locally as in local to the outbreak, yes. That's not what Fenton is talking about.

    I mean 'locally', as in Atlanta. The chances of it spreading are not much more from there, with protocols in place, than from a sicky coming here.

    In the US, we have the labs and facilities to experiment with the active virus and possibly come up with some preventative medicine. We can't ship all of that equipment and resources to remote Africa so easily.

    Scuttlebutt is that Obama has already signed off on bringing ebola to America. There's a Gulfstream jet that's going to pick up two Americans in West Africa who are infected with ebola and fly them back to American soil.

    You would think bringing lice and scabbies across the border would have been enough.

    You think we need to have Ebola patients HERE to work on a " vaccine" ?

    You think in 2014 we have no way to transmit virus cultures internationally ?

    And is that the actual excuse they're using to justify bringing in Ebola infected dumbasses ( if you ask me ) into America ?

    Or is that your opinion ?

    Oh, that's a lot safer, just transport the infected fluids over here instead.
