    This virus and more importantly it's social implications cannot be avoided, the best way to keep America safe (and incidentally the rest of us) is to tackle the crisis at its source and stop it.

    The US has very great capability in this regard, the unit being sent over specializes in this kind of thing and on top of that it will provide them with invaluable experience that can be used should something crop up closer to home that is worse.

    If the One stopped people from ebola country from coming here he might not be able to subvert the Constitution completely when after the election he declares an amnesty for the 20-30 million illegals who are here.

    You heard the CDC last week... shutting down flights would make ebola in America worse.

    Why didn't you select a more reasonable alternative and prevent anyone who had been to ebola country from entering the US? It has the same effect of protecting American citizens without placing our volunteer military at risk for no good reason.

    It can be done in minutes and at almost no additional cost.

    The "unit" being sent has no such specializations. They are reported to be a mix of engineers, infantry, military police units...

    At least 700 members of the division (101st) will deploy to Liberia starting next week as part of the U.S. military’s 4,000-soldier humanitarian mission, which is expected to last up to a year and is aimed at building 17 100-bed Ebola care centers and training hundreds of health care workers.

    They are Obama's cannon fodder.

    Can you explain how preventing a disease from being introduced in America will make the disease worse in America?

    Re: Texas Health Care Worker Tests Positive for Ebola

    We should bar All flights and passengers originating in the Ebola countries.

    What's the downside?
    There is virtually ZERO significant loss of Tourism or other Economic/Business interest.

    The need for the nationals of those tiny/crap-hole countries (Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea) to get here is ZERO compared to the risk.

    Only Aid workers (I support) should be able to transit on chartered flights with Special precautions.

    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.
    WTF!
    (how did you LIARS 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.
    Hazmat suit Halloween.

    Things that make you go hmmm....

    When it comes to the uninsured, doesn't Texas rank number one ?

    Texas is the uninsured capital of the United States. More than 6.3 million Texans - including 1.2 million children - lack health insurance. Texas' uninsurance rates, 1.5 to 2 times the national average, create significant problems in the financing and delivery of health care to all Texans. Those who lack insurance coverage typically enjoy far-worse health status than their insured counterparts. - See more at: http://www.texmed.org/Uninsured_in_T....UBwIaKwa.dpuf

    I believe it is Obama's October Surprise. If we have an epidemic we will spend billions of dollars thus spurring economic growth. I am sure it will have an impact on the elections in Reid's favor.

    Problem with that: Everything Obama tries to handle explodes in his face.
    This Ebola fiasco? Just another FUBAR situation.
