    That WAS pretty much the point. Stopping all flights into the US is ALSO a phenomenally stupid idea. But as long as we're panicking, let's go all the way and shut down our economy for 21 days.

    Not all flights, just those originating or connecting from the affected countries...
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    And no one on his plane has contracted ebola either. That's the point of screening and a 21 day follow up. We have this... so it's time to move on I'm afraid. Don't be too disappointed.

    New travel restrictions in place

    All U.S.-bound passengers from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea must land in one of the five U.S. airports with enhanced screening for Ebola: New York's John F. Kennedy International, Washington Dulles, New Jersey's Newark Liberty International, Chicago's O'Hare International and Hartsfield-Jackson International in Atlanta. More than 4,500 people have died from Ebola from those three West African countries.

    Travelers from Ebola-affected countries to be monitored for 3 weeks

    All travelers coming from Ebola-affected areas will be actively monitored for 21 days starting Monday, CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden announced in a telebriefing on Wednesday. Contact information including email, two phone numbers and a physical U.S. address will be gathered from all people coming to the United States from Liberia, Guinea or Sierra Leone, Frieden said.

    So you can shut down those countries economy when they are struggling with ebola? We are on top of this in more ways than one. No one else is dying under our care and they are getting well in weeks. Plus there are 2 vaccines being tested right now. Ebola will never be a disease of developed nations sorry.

    Well you see things are "all or nothing" - the one thing the government MUST do as it states in the constitution is protect the United States and it's people. What's confusing you is your posts which compartmentalize in black and white, all or nothing. I'm happy that I don't 100% conform to your perception (whatever that is) of my views.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No one's calling for that. They want to stop all flights from African countries effected.
