    Exactly right.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    But, once again, it is the result of hindsight, the result of Spencer returning, mixing among the populous, placing many American citizens at risk.

    It would be really nice if some of these obviously intelligent measures could be enacted from foresight, before the otherwise inevitable epidemic-causing risk (like Spencer) actually occurs.

    When the great majority of Americans want specific response (91% polled wanted such a response), those in political authority would do well to listen and comply up front.

    It's the democratic thing to do as well.
    They could have been done much earlier, the CDC response, and the white house response (including appointing an "eboa czar" whos actually a political operative) were done purely for politics.

    As stated previously, I don't think the NY-NJ policy is unreasonable. It does involve some degree of trade-offs e.g., greater temporary restrictions on certain persons based in risk exposure (with possible implications cited in the above CNN piece) in exchange for greater public confidence. Public policy entails numerous trade-offs, even when it comes to health policy.

    Is the new policy optimal? Time will tell. It is reasonable, though.
    Its rare for any policy to be optimal, but it is better than what we have-and thats a start.

    Coming to a head.
    Quarantines at JFK, Newark, Chicago/O'hare... and just now Florida announces special monitoring.

    Illinois Orders Mandatory Ebola Quarantine for Certain Travelers
    Nolan Feeney - Time.com - 9:37 AM ET
    Ebola: Illinois Orders Mandatory Quarantine for Certain Travelers

    A 21-day quarantine is mandatory for anyone who had direct contact with an Ebola patient in Sierra Leone, Guinea or Liberia

    People in Illinois who have had direct contact with an Ebola patient in certain African countries must now undergo a quarantine for 21 days.

    Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed an order on Friday that affects medical workers and other “high-risk” travelers who have been around Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, Guinea or Liberia, the Chicago Tribune reports.

    “This protective measure is too important to be voluntary,” he said in a statement. “While we have no confirmed cases of the Ebola virus in Illinois, we will continue to take every safeguard necessary to protect first responders, health care workers and the people of Illinois.”
    [.........]
    I've been strongly in favor of these quarantines or Better/Rather, stopping All commercial flights to the area.
    Replacing them with ONLY Special precaution Charter flights for aid workers/supplies.
    Still am.

    Due to Govt/CDC/LaBamba inaction, we are left with the much more complicated commercial Flight Equation:
    IF this is adopted universally by states, will enough Health Care workers go to the Infected countries to stop a wider epidemic, which will eventually creep here... instead of dropping in 1 every week or two that We can Ostensibly handle.

    Going to be interesting to see if health workers stop going.
    Perhaps the Govt will adopt My "special precaution charter flight only" suggestion instead of FAILING to put in a coherent system.

    Obama has failed so badly on these border issues. The Illegal immigrant Southern border even Worse/worst ever.

    And Obama is now pressuring states to end these quarantines. Its like he's trying to be on the wrong side of everything.
