    Re: Red Cross president: 'The Ebola crisis will grow'

    Im kinda lovin watching committed leftists rushing to trot out Shep Smiths (of Fox News fame) diatribe on the reporting of the Ebola scandal. Meanwhile...you have these irresponsible, panicky, ****heads making comments like this...

    "Ebola is a crisis at our door"

    "It is spiraling out of control, it's getting worse, it's spreading exponentially"

    Man...someone should tell those two assholes to calm down and shut the **** up...right?

    There is no Ebola spreading in America. Should that change, our reporting will change. But there is nothing indicating that it will. Best advice for you and your family at this moment? Get a flu shot. Unlike Ebola, flu is easily transmitted. Flu, along with resulting pneumonia, killed 52,000 Americans last year alone. A flu shot will reduce your chance of getting flu. So get one.

    Or this:

    Doctor who worked with Ebola patients says no need to panic

    A doctor from Salem who was on the front lines of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia earlier this summer believes people in the United States don't need to panic about an outbreak.

    "They need to know that we're not all gonna die of Ebola … the chance of a large outbreak in this country is very, very, very slim. We have a robust health system that protects us,” she said.

    Ebola is spread through body fluids, not through the air. A fever is a main symptom. People without fevers aren’t contagious, even if they’ve been exposed. Dr. Eisenhut said if people are concerned about infection they should religiously wash their hands. She also said that's something all of us should be doing anyway to prevent all diseases from spreading.

    Pull your head out.

    Shepard Smith is heavily invested in the sinking stock market and is freaking over losing his money.

    People need to worry about someone who tells them "not to worry".

    I've nearly died from pneumonia and Barr Epstein, promise you it ain't pretty.

    When I look around the parking lot at night to get in my car, it's not panicking, it's called being prudent.

    Well... they should.

    As I said before, the #1 rule in life when facing a problem is:

    1. DO NOT PANIC!

    Anytime someone asks you to panic they don't really want to help you but basically want something from you. In this case, as in most cases, I'm sure it's money. And you can fund things without ****ing panicking.

    The bolded is a guide to circular logic panic.

    No one is going to jump you in a parking lot and give you ebola. Stop panicking.

I also read today where WHO was quoted as saying that you could easily contract it if you were within 3 feet of someone who has Ebola.

    I have questions. Ebola has been around since Christ left Chicago. It didn't suddenly appear 2 months ago. It's been around since air travel and since westerners have been air traveling to Africa and Africans air traveling to the west. It has not ravaged Africa or anything close in over 40 years. Why now?

    Is Ebola weaponized? If so, who holds the patent?

    If Ebola has been weaponized and patented, when did that occur? If so, what nations will spend bazillions developing a cure for weaponized Ebola? If so, why is there no antidote?

    What countries and companies will make fortunes untold developing and providing a cure?

    Could what we are seeing be weaponized Ebola?
    Well it emerged in 1976 (or so), so we've had air travel quite a bit before that.

    We don't know why it emerged, we have not positively identified its natural reservoir. It only emerged 40 yrs ago...the sporadic outbreaks have been since then.

    It has sporadically emerged when humans came across infected hosts of the virus and then been fairly isolated to villages.

    Since its manner of transmission has not changed and the virus has not gotten more virulent (deadly), I'd say your conspiracy theory about weaponization is unlikely.
