    I have been a registered nurse in Texas for 30 years. We have the same standards as everyone else, and for you guys to act so stupid is a ****ing embarrassment to what is a serious issue. Growing up might be in order.

    And before we start throwing money, let's not forget our debt is currently 17.8 trillion dollars and increasing.
    I don't know . . . Call me old fashion but I believe in medical research and technology, and that costs money.

    Ebola isn't a large threat, but it is paradigmatic of the ease in which infectious diseases move around the modern world and will do so in the future. The best way to handle that is not the castle moat fear-mongering we're seeing on this thread from conservatives (which we both deplore) but more research, more best practices, more equipment, more training. All that costs money.

    Sure he is. Do you know how many work in management in the CDC?

    Cutting spending on health care has consequences. Texas has an archaic health care system when it comes to public health (it caters to the rich). It's a coincidence that ebola arrived in Texas first, but it might not be a coincidence that the hospital that first saw the patient was not following best practices.

    Policies have consequences and it is appropriate to criticize the outmoded and anti-modern policies of Perry.

    Course maybe you should let those know there......ya might even get to a few before the CDC does. Just sayin!
    Tarot cards? All I said is something that it could be. Ebola's early symptoms are flu-like. Didn't you know that?

    Maybe you could give me some stats on that or consider...

    The spray could have gotten on anything within the area, a small child or pet could have come in contact with it.

    YOu may as well put me on your ignore list, because you're enough of a child that I won't respond to you further. I can clearly see that to you, this isn't about public safety, or about a deadly virus, but about politics. Good day.

    So public health policy isn't about public safety. Jesus Crist.

    What did Perry do about Medicaid? Do you know?

    That's $11.3 billion... and yet an Ebola infected man can fly to the United States by simply lying to airport staff. When do Americans wake up and say that we're not making progress here?
    Do you have a source for that number?

    It may be treated with bleach though. I can add soap to my powerwasher.
    Yes, appears the woman is about to walk through the water. So you know if they added bleach?
    I had no idea it was Perry's job to put out a statement and calm the nation,
    after all he is the Gov of Texas and not the President.

    "Speaking Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said there was still a "very low" likelihood the Ebola virus could mutate in a way that poses a threat to the United States.

    "Right now, the risk of an Ebola outbreak in the United States is very low, but that risk would only increase if there were not a robust response on the part of the United States," Earnest said."
