    I totally disagree.

    I have participated in military exercises in the preparedness for quarantines for Ebola.

    The concepts of self-isolation, and a diary of minimized contacts was re-enforced on multiple occasions throughout the training.

    There is no possible way this was bad judgement. The rules and protocols are way beyond clear in this instance.

    Well...it's just not fair that African countries have it and we don't. You know damn well that if it wasn't for American greed, Africa would be better off.

    Yep.

    Why just today an entire family from West Africa that recently just came here to live is being quarantined: Six in quarantine in Connecticut as U.S. steps up Ebola checks.

    Don't know how they got past all the security.

    Makes me wonder.

    Indeed.

    Here's a man who knew he'd been contaminated .. and he knows where the best care is .. so he flies back incognito, so to speak, with a whole plane-load of oblivious people from Brussels .. then he gets tired of "quarantining" himself .. with his girlfriend who was waiting for him here .. waiting for the inevitable symptoms to manifest .. so he goes out bowling.

    Many doctors think they're the smartest ones in the room. No surprise here.

    I fired one of my doctors for being arrogant.

    If you are a highly trained medical doctor, and just witnessed first hand the deaths of Ebola in Guinea, and you return to the U.S.

    Whether you feel well, or not, any responsible person, regardless of whether the government insists upon isolation, would place themselves voluntarily in a mode of low public contact and make of diary of all contact they do have, just in case.

    If this person went to a public gathering, such as a bowling alley, given his level of training, exposure, and change of location from Africa to the relatively Ebola free area of the United States, we have to assume that for Political or Personal motivations, he is TRYING to deliberately spread the disease!

    This man is, in my estimation, A TERRORIST!

    This is a clear and present danger to the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans, and represents a valid case of deliberate Terrorism!

    He finished his service and came home more than a week ago. He was symptom free (and NOT infectious) until 10am today, when he reported sick and was taken to hospital with due precautions. Fear is a killer, as is ignorance. Screaming fire in a theater only makes a person look stupid.
    Don't work out, work in.
