    Think of it. The troops are coming from all over the US. When they return they will return to all over the US.
    Those poor guys. I would not serve under Eboma.
    I can't think of anything more disrespectful than calling the president of the United States, "the one." What is wrong with you?

    But if they were recently in Africa that should have been a red flag.

    My "guess", as you call it, lacks any hyperbole and is quite educated.

    Also, did you not read where they're saying another person is in isolation right now under observation, not just that one nurse?!

    When they indicate whether or not that person has Ebola, then I believe you'll see the coincidence about the nurse is quite likely, much more likely than that she treated her own life carelessly and didn't follow protocols for removing her protective gear as the CDC "don't panic" line guesses.

    Of course, there is a third possibility to consider: that the nurse followed the CDC protocols for removing her protective gear .. and those protocols are inadequate!
    You keep ignoring the fact that Ebola is not contagious when the carrier is not showing symptoms.

    I am sure they didn't examine his entrance paperwork before giving him medical care. Their failure to screen him for ebola right away is inexcusable. The ER were my works had an severely ill patient from Africa and they quarantined him, notified the CDC, and tested him for ebola right away. He was negative.

    That happened before this case in Texas happened. So for whatever reason, that hospital didn't take the necessary precautions.

Even the dude who operates on aids patients will EVENTUALLY become lulled into a sense of complacency, if he does the same thing often enough. As for a fix to that, the only thing I have ever found that works is to constantly change up the duties and details that I have people working on. Keep them doing new things. This, obviously, won't work in many fields. I would wager, medical is included.
    Pretty sure a guy working with his first Ebola patient was following protocol.

    Hey whatever that little partisan hack conspiracy mind of yours dreams up. Did you blame Obama for that stinky fart you ripped today too?

    No that would be dumb. People like my fiancé have been living in the US but are not naturalized yet. He is legal resident and going through the immigration process. Stopping all immigration wouldn't serve any reason purpose, nor does it make sense. Even if people are not immigrating to the US, people still get travel visas to America. So if you think ending immigration will prevent ebola, you are being shortsighted.

    It would make more sense enact a travel ban, or at least setup medical testing and screening before (re)entry to the US.
