    Go back and look at my post with my solution and quit acting like a child. I stated clearly that if a person who wants to come to this country that is from a country that has an outbreak, he must serve a 21 day quarantine before he boards the plane.

    You keep rehashing the same debunked talking points.

    Its called logic. Keeping flights coming from the exposed countries is stupidly foolish as already demonstrated. This Ebola virus seems to be more virulent than previously said. That means measures must be taken to contain it early or it WILL get out of hand. The CDC has only FOUR full isolation hospitals each with approximately 11beds. that's 44 beds in the entire country. How many do we have exposed with symptoms? Here's another they don't tell you. It takes 21 days for the vial load on your system to become apparent and you to be contagious. What they don't tell you is you are contagious before the symptoms appear. If you have the virus and its replicating, you are contagious. Cutting flights is not panic its prudent. It doesn't eliminate risk it slows the spread down so it can be dealt with easier.

    Again, no. Ban any passenger from the hot spot countries from traveling to the US, regardless of the country the flight originated. In Duncan's case, he flew to Brussels first, then to Dallas TX. In Brussels, were the ban in place, Duncan would not have been permitted to board the flight to the U.S.

    It's really not that difficult at a concept level so I'm not sure why you're having trouble with this.
    ďI think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whatís being proposed here, heíd agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.Ē - 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.

    And that is impractical to enforce.

    Besides what if the person contracts ebola during the 21 day quarantine?

    Besides there only 4 hospitals that are really prepared to handle this type of situation. Which Friedman the head of CDC is thinking of sending any others to one of those four.
    My question to the twit is why didn't that happen with the current and previous patients. They all should have been sent to an isolation ward.

    Then he wasn't in quarantine to begin with.

    I don't think we have much power to compel Belgium to change its policy of who is allowed to travel in and out of the country.

    The country in question would have to enforce the quarantine.

    Down in the Right hand corner, the source for that Map to the Bing page was the CDC and all who it says. Which includes the WHO and UNICEF.
    I saw that. Ebola is not new. Do WHO and UNICEF have a history of inept reporting on Ebola?

    No it's not impractical, you have your agenda so there isn't anything that can be said that would change your mind. We reject passports every single day 365 days a year.
    If the person is in quarantine, just how is he going to contract the disease? Tell me what you think his chances are of contracting it under those circumstances?
    Why are you against protecting the people of this country from a disease that has no known cure nor a vaccine at this time?
    Do you hate America?
    Why are you against a prudent solution to a serious problem?
    Why do you want someone who could be infected to enter our country?
