    The point is she knows she's not putting her fellow Americans at risk. Likely thousands have done what she's done, worked in Ebola country, returned home, self monitored, and not one bystander has been infected. Even Duncan's family, the African who died of Ebola, weren't infected and they lived with him in the same house. Bottom line is a quarantine can't possibly have worked better than the ZERO cases of Ebola spread by returning healthcare workers without mandatory quarantines.

    I don't think it's reasonable to call someone selfish for not wanting to act as if irrational fears are in fact rational, especially when the reason why she's being quarantined is a very unselfish act - take care of the sick and dying in Africa.

    But the workers aren't doing "nothing." They are self monitoring and presenting themselves for care when they get symptoms. That strategy has worked PERFECTLY so far.

    Millions aren't going to be infected here. There have been TWO people contract Ebola in this country. They (the two nurses) spread the disease to no one, and were treated and recovered. There is no outbreak in the U.S.

    Liberals can't comprehend the general welfare part of The Constitution.

    I don't think the general welfare clause requires public officials to put healthcare workers under 21 day house arrest for no known purpose.

    Too bad Eric Duncan wasn't quarantined.

    So far it has. He monitored himself and when symptoms presented, checked himself in for treatment. No one else infected. How could a quarantine have worked better?
