    Hah. I've actually seen those claims here.
    there's still a lot of racism out there; white, black, Asian, you name it. real anonymity brings it out, but most racists won't do it in public any more because they know they'll be shunned. that's some progress, at least.

    I don't believe racism is the same thing as racial bigotry; a social construct must be defined by social factors and not merely the action of an individual. The context should at least be national when examining social dynamics, so as to accommodate the ability to move away from non-systemic privilege.

    Mmmm. So the deaths of thousands of people is just more fodder for partisan nonsense. Sweet.

    Anyway. Liberia's resources are already strained just trying to cope with the outbreak. We're sending troops to try and help with the situation. I really don't see anything wrong with that.


    Didn't the UN say this was already out of control?
    Are you suggesting we should sit back and do nothing? Seriously?

    The problem is not that "Ebola cannot be stopped." It's that international response has been too slow, and too little, to contain it. The longer we do nothing, the harder it will be to contain, and the more lives it will take.

    Next time, you hear BO peep say my military.....then get back to me about that waste of a thought with what you think Partisanship is about.

    Did I say we should sit back and do nothing? What you didn't see me agree with another about sending those from the CDC? Or asking why they aren't being sent. Must mean I was thinking about some sort of assistance from us.....huh, seriously.

    Well there are a bunch of European countries that just don't have a full plate to deal with.....do you think they can be influenced to get off their ass and do something rather than sit around and hope it don't show up in their country.

Why aren't we sending medical professionals, the CDC and private sector builders to get this stuff done? If we need to isolate the sick and keep them detained - I can see the military being used.
    The US generally militarizes everything. I mean, just look at what occurred after the earthquake in Haiti. We militarized the aid.

    Obama's too stupid to think things like this through.

    Ike warned about the Military Industrial Complex getting out of control 60 years ago....

    And what if one of these guys does get Ebola and dies? What then? Oh well?

    Typical dumb idea from our dumb President.
