Just some PC CLOWNS Dishonestly trying to field the easier ones.
It's going to cost the West BILLION$, TEN'S of Billions MORE, for airport screening/Hospital-procedure/etc instead barring flights/passengers originating in those countries.
Untold Angst and perhaps cut the whole World airline Industry's traffic, so a FEW passengers from the Crap-hole Infected countries can visit their relatives in Newark, NJ.
(how did you LIAR'S vote in the PC Poll?)
Flu season is starting and it's going to be Madness with Airport Screeners and Hospital staff's worried/HAVING to worry that every fever might about Ebola too.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.
That does not surprise me. Again, just goes to show how uneducated our populace is.
- There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
- Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
- Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
Yes, take reasonable precautions. But no, don't panic.
And again, I'm all for financing a massive health intervention in places that have ebola cases right now. Absolutely.
But grounding all planes won't resolve the situation.
Oh, and by the way - people DO survive ebola; it doesn't kill 100% of the victims
Its becoming painfully clear that our system is not ready for this. The fact that first individual with Ebola in the US has infected a person assigned to treat them is proof positive. This should have never have happened and frankly, I hold the CDC responsible for this. They should have had their teams treating this guy, not normal hospital staff who had a brief on CDC guidelines.
And a travel ban does not mean all planes are grounded. In concerted effort, particularly with Europe, a system can be devised preventing all non-essential passenger traffic from the affected regions. This should have been implemented months ago. The longer we wait, the more difficult and ineffective it will be.
Who is currently in favor of not restricting travel from west Africa? Progressives. If travel from west Africa had been banned 3 months by progressive President Barack Obola, then there would be no cases of Ebola in the US. Now we have a nurse in Dallas who has the disease. More great progress from progressives!
