    Someone who sneers at the idea that Ebola is dangerous, if nothing else, will not be on guard and careful about contracting the illness, which makes them more likely to be carrying it.

    Seems to me the public policy response is a general quarantine and isolation of liberals....indefinitely!

    Apparently you see no room for honest disagreement on a very complex issue, and are concluding that those who respect the recommendations of the scientists are only doing so to 'protect their allied political power bases.' It's not a basis for reasoned debate. You're doing the same finger pointing you are accusing others of doing, and attributing illegitimate motives to those who don't AGREE with you.

    Basically we have a different view on what being 'sensitive' to public concerns requires. I don't think validating fears that are contrary to science with public policy choices with significant real world effects that will HARM efforts to control the spread of Ebola, such as broad based travel bans according to experts, are wise choices. As I said, but which you dismissed by repeating your previous points, I think there is a reasonable middle ground.

    You are aware that it only takes 72 hours to obtain a visa from Liberia right?

    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    Saudi's also believe cutting off the hands of thieves stops crime. They are clueless in so many ways it isn't funny.

    I think Eorhn had up a list of all the Countries that did the same in one of these Ebola threads.....but then I guess they weren't worried about the global economy, huh?
