    I think when someone points to the failures of Multiculturalism they're specifically talking about the cultures that fundamentally contradict our own values and beliefs.

    And yes, multiculturalism in that sense is a HUGE mistake.

    It's a big ass planet and there are a lot of diseases.

    Is there a reason you decided to make up a budget number?

    This outbreak is unique, if you haven't noticed. But ostrichlike, you can stick your head in the sand and blame Obama or libruls, if you want.

    Meanwhile physicians and health care experts know that this outbreak will reach the US, and that it needs to be meet with a fully funded CDC, not one hobbled by idiotic budget hawk conservatives (who by the way shut down a couple of CDC research labs in one of their Obamaphobe witchhunts).

    Moreover, our anemic health care system, which still doesn't cover millions of Americans and still charges outrageous amount to keep people AWAY from doctors, has come back to haunt us. Europe doesn't have this problem. People get sick, they go to a doctor. In rightwing America, people get sick and conservatives have set up perverse incentive to keep them away from doctors -- copays and deductibles and spector of losing work time.

    It's rather ironic, I think, that if this epidemic hits the US hard, all the conservative shibboleths about the free market and health care and going to make Americans incredibly angry at the freaks that prevent a single payer system.

    It's time to end ALL immigration, legal or illegal, not that our laws are respected anyway. We have over 300,000,000 people already, how many more do we need??
    Fear of modernity, scapegoating - the natural conservative freak response to a health care issue.

    BTW, Obama said it was unlikely that we would have Ebola in the US.

    Unlikely to even have one case.
    No he didn't say that, but don't let me interrupt your Obamaphobia eructation. It's all you have to say on the topic, like all conservatives.

    Meantime, health care experts know this matter will take billions to deal with. Hopefully Americans will finally realize how foolish they were to listen to stupid conservative talking points about private enterprise in health care, vote out the GOP and finally get universal single payer.

    Remarks by the President on the Ebola Outbreak | The White House



    Chris Matthews vs. Ezekiel Emanuel on Ebola: "Obama Said It Was Unlikely. It Has Happened. It's Here" | Video | RealClearPolitics[/

    You might want to read your own link.

    Just read it and it doesn't exactly say want you or Matthews says it does.

    First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States. In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home. We’re working to help flight crews identify people who are sick, and more labs across our country now have the capacity to quickly test for the virus. We’re working with hospitals to make sure that they are prepared, and to ensure that our doctors, our nurses and our medical staff are trained, are ready, and are able to deal with a possible case safely.

    So what's your answer? Become an isolated nation? From what I've seen foreign cultures tend to adapt our norms after a generation or two anyway.

    We shouldn't let people who have been in the hot zone into the country.
