    So you're going to stick with the rightwing fiction that Customs officials are the answer to infectious diseases in the modern global economy.

    Heaven help us.

    What Are the Chances Ebola Will Spread in the United States?

    That's ridiculous.



    Barrier protection is a simple disposable plastic apron.
    Face protection? A paper mask.
    Eye Protection? A plastic visor, or wraparound eyeglasses.

    All very basic equipment which is normally available in the smallest country cottage hospital, let alone a major center.

    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    An easy and effective way to identify the racists among us is to watch for the injection of race into every discussion. The racists cannot help themselves.

    Yes, because customs is how you fight infectious diseases in a modern world with airplanes.

    Jesus Crist man, enough with the talking points. Every expert in the field has concluded ebola will get here, not as an isolated incident in Texas, but in the course of world travel in the modern. It's just what happens. Get used to it and face reality.

    And the Government. Hell, did you hear Matt lauers interview with the head of the CDC ?

    Jesus H !

    I wonder what those 3000 service Men are thinking right about now ? They're headed to ground zero by a incompetent administration.
    Far more people will be murdered in the US in gun rampages than will ever die of ebola. Its amazing some people can even sleep at night with so much to worry about.

    Heya Skipper. What did you think these Nurses made this up and they went all in just to lie to the NY Times?

    A survey by National Nurses United of some 400 nurses in more than 200 hospitals in 25 states found that more than half (60 percent) said their hospital is not prepared to handle patients with Ebola, and more than 80 percent said their hospital has not communicated to them any policy regarding potential admission of patients infected by Ebola. Another 30 percent said their hospital has insufficient supplies of eye protection and fluid-resistant gowns.....snip~

    jk :P
    The assholes who are allowing this are in Washington DC. If people are going to be exposed to ebola I want to make sure it is in a place filled with liberal democrats who cause most of our problems. If it sweeps through Washington DC it could be a net benefit to the country.
