So banning flights from West Africa accomplishes exactly NOTHING unless the rest of the world bans flights and all other travel from West Africa or we ban all international flights.
    So, in your opinion letting more West Africans enter the US puts us at less risk for the spread of Ebola into this country.......got it....makes perfect sense. Fortunately, most normal Americans understand the opposite

    I think you missed the point so I'll frame it in the form of a question. How would banning flights from West Africa to the United States have prevented Thomas Duncan from entering the country?

    It's real simple........you ban people who's flights originated in West Africa........it's that a difficult concept for you to understand. Obviously, we could create exceptions for US citizens returning home......after they undergo rigorous Ebola screenings. This clown Duncan knew he was infected......got a visitor visa by lying so he could obtain US medical treatment.......infected at least one American........and left me with a $500,000 medical bill.......how many times do you want to repeat that story?

    Thomas Duncan's flight to the United States originated in Brussels. Who can or cannot board flights on Belgian soil is up to the Belgian government not the United States.

    So what exactly is it that you are asking for? Homeland Security to develop a program to track flight rosters and maintain a dynamic no-fly list fast enough to stop someone from purchasing a ticket and boarding a connecting flight to the United States? Not possible.

    Trust me.......I deal with Homeland Security everyday and they already have this technology/capability in place.......the only question is whether anyone wants to exercise the political will to implement it.......our Dear Leader and most of our politicians are too afraid to be called 'racists'.........so they would rather see Americans die.......that's why I applaud Ted Cruz for being bold and taking the high road

    Ted Cruz is talking about banning flights from West Africa which is completely ridiculous for the reasons I've already specified.

    No, Ted Cruz should say what Ted Cruz means.

    I'm not concerned about 'turning into Liberia.' Don't let your imagination run wild.
