    Another reason to just cut flights.

    You don't know just how things work do you regarding passports?
    If we aren't accepting passports from a given country, then Belgium wouldn't allow him on board because that's the way things roll with passports.

    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?

    Then you think incorrectly. If the US refuses to allow a country of origin to travel to it via flights it can and will. The FAA can simply state the US will not allow flights if a member of country _X_ is listed on board. The US does not have to let anyone it deems a potential threat onto US soil. Of course we have the power to do that. Can you cite a law or ruling citing the US MUST let everyone into our country?
    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.

    If they don't, then the person doesn't come to this country

    You didn't give me the respect to answer the questions I asked of you. I respected you enough to answer yours.
    I didn't ask you what is the best way to fight the ebola epidemic.

    Heya Pirate. Yeah and now he admits they should have sent a response team to Dallas.....although now they say they have a response team ready. Also the Atlanta hospital sent 2 nurses to the Dallas hospital to help.

    Difficult to do when infected people are allowed to spread the disease to the US, unless you think Dallas is considered the source.

    It's really not that difficult at a concept level so I'm not sure why you're having trouble with this.

    Heya Ockham here was what they were showing that leaves those countries by air.
