    I signed up to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I did not sign up to go babysit sick people in ebola country. I signed up to defend my nation not to be exposed to a fatal disease in countries that are unimportant to US national security.

    Perhaps you signed up to be exposed, needlessly, to ebola.

    The following are the top 15 causes of death in the United States:

    Cause of Death / Percent of Total
    1. Diseases of the heart
    28.5
    2. Malignant tumors 22.8
    3. Cerebrovascular diseases 6.7
    4. Chronic lower respiratory diseases 5.1
    5. Accidents (unintentional injuries) 4.4
    6. Diabetes mellitus 3.0
    7. Influenza and pneumonia 2.7
    8. Alzheimer's disease 2.4
    9. Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis 1.7
    10. Septicemia (blood poisoning) 1.4
    11. Suicide 1.3
    12. Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis 1.1
    13. Primary hypertension and hypertensive renal disease 0.8
    14. Parkinson's disease (tied) 0.7
    15. Homicide (tied) 0.7

    Just as an FYI, the odds are millions and millions and millions to one that any of the following will be your demise: terrorism, ebola, home invasions, beheading, or wild animal attack. It is a near certainty those are not what will kill you. If you are a smoker and or overweight, and you are worried about Ebola, your personal risk calculator is way off.

    Today, in the United States, you have less than a 1 in 300,000,000 chance of contracting Ebola. In contrast, if you smoke, you have about a 1 in 5 chance of getting lung cancer and dying a miserable death from it. If you are obese, you will on average die about 10 years early than someone that is fit (not to mention is greatly ups your cancer risk). Personally, with all the trail running, road biking, and wilderness backpacking trips I do, if anything kills me before my time I will probably be some kind an accident resulting from some thrill junkie stunt. Point being, I don't worry about ebola killing me, terrorism killing me, some inner city youth killing me (even though I often go on runs that take me through the inner city), or any of things that statistically have little to no chance of being my demise. Similarly, I don't count on the lottery for my retirement.

    Grow a pair and quit freaking out over ebola.
    So, no doubt you too, would foolishly allow more infected people to come to the US. Let us hope you soak up all of the probabilities for this wondrous virus.

    I didn't forget it, I'm waiting for you to explain it. You seem confused. As if you've been spending too much time at the Bush Presidential Library or something. That's it, isn't it?

    Wait it's some special rightwing jargon, like Agenda 21. Is that it?

    Ebola Scare Hits Washington, Latest of About 100 Alerts to CDC

    Officials are also monitoring an inmate at Cobb County Jail in Georgia. However, the initial blood test was negative for Ebola, according to the Cobb County Sheriff's Office. Though the scares have put some on edge, the cases are not unique. After issuing an alert to hospitals and medical providers in July, the CDC has looked into approximately 100 Ebola scares in 33 states, as of Oct. 1, the agency said.....snip~

    I think MMC has a magic Ebola detector ring he got at Breitbart.com. It only cost $29.95

    So it's a term for Agenda 21? Honestly you must have provided a link as bad as your argument is.

    Well, Team BO wants them to screen people that are coming from the infected states. So they should be taking notice. Also he was sent home exhibiting those symptons.

    So do you think it a real good probable chance he was exhibiting when he arrived in DC?
