    Since when is irrational fear called common sense? Is that because the Right wants us to be in a constant state of fear?

    We'll get hungry. the economy will crash.

    But if people are stupid enough to fly when they're on the ebola watch list, then oh well. Let's do it. Shut the world down.
    This is a phenomenally stupid idea.

    Right-wing lie No. 23,537: "Liberalism is all about emotion."

    Amazing the number of fallacious talking points that are routinely regurgitated onto the forum.

    It is common sense because when we are being told that they want to "contain" this outbreak, but yet won't do the simplest step to contain it which is cut off flights coming into the US carrying possible carriers.

    You stupid comment about Republicans wanting us to live in fear is stupid, and nonsense far left talking point, and laughable.

    They are screeming all passengers from the infected area for Ebola. They are curing and releasing the few Americans that have contracted the disease which by all measures is over in this country but you are screaming for a ban still. I'm sorry but that is irrational fear mongering. A ban won't make us one bit safer than we already are.

    Not just me pal, even those from your own side of the isle...

    "In multiple cases, the Democrats are shifting from their earlier positions on the question, despite arguments from senior U.S. medical officials and the White House that stiff restrictions would only make it harder to prevent an infected person from entering the country. Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire joined the crowd on Monday night, saying through a spokesman that she "strongly supports any and all effective measures to keep Americans safe including travel bans if they would work."

    There's no substance to refute. It's just a catchphrase.

    Don't worry man, admitting you have a problem is the first step...I'm not saying that it is a bad thing to have emotions, but to rely on them for political answers never works out well for you libs...As you get older you'll realize that.

    Big deal. Duncan wasn't displaying symptoms until days after his plane trip.
