    Scared? No. Do I trust corrupt and political state agencies to be honest about the virus and its risks? No.

    Scared??? No. Concerned? Of course.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    We should be scared that Obama still has 27 more months in the White House.

    The Obama administration State Department issued the visa to the individual (Duncan) who became infected with Ebola in his home country in Liberia.

    Obama's Department of Homeland Security allowed the Ebola infected individual into the United States.

    Of course I am concerned.

    What kind of a person looks at a potential widespread disease and isn't worried?

    Just because we're the US doesn't mean people can't contract and spread viruses - and die - at an alarming rate. Just because we have electricity and internet doesn't mean we're safe from such things.

    Epidemics happen when the spread of the disease or ailment outpaces the rate of care and cure.

    No, I am far more worried about this Enterovirus Respiratory Infection hitting kids hard in some 46 (ish) States today than I am Ebola. At least for now.

    Even more of a concern.

    A handful get Enterovirus - taxing the healthcare system further (as has happened in several places already) - and then become more susceptible to contracting and spreading other ailments while at the doctor / hospital.

    So one serious concern has a cascading effect - and then becomes two. All while a war is going on and people are deploying and coming home left and right. Seriously - we do not live in abubble.

    Barack Obama Is Bringing Disease to America

    >" With a southern border so unguarded that even a federal bulletin has warned that it may be the source of an imminent terrorist attack, there is strong suspicion that another threat has crossed it: disease.

    News stories have appeared recently about a strange outbreak across the Midwest of Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), which is related to the common cold but causes severe respiratory illness. The disease has sent a multitude of children to the hospital, with some requiring treatment in intensive-care units. And while the Center for Disease Control (CDC) is blaming the outbreak on “seasonal allergies” and the school year’s start, many critics are asking an obvious question: Is it a coincidence that this outbreak occurred right after the Obama administration allowed tens of thousands of illegal-alien minors to cross our border and then shipped them all over the United States?

    And this thesis seems ever more valid with reports that the federal government has coerced schools into accepting possibly sick illegal-alien children. Writes the Daily Caller’s Eric Owens, “The Obama administration has not subjected a large number of these children to proper medical screening processes. Instead, the federal government has sent the unaccompanied minors to various U.S. locations to live with relatives or, in some cases, to live as foster wards. The children then enroll in local, taxpayer-funded public schools with no questions asked — by law.” Professor of medicine at New York University’s Langone Medical Center Dr. Marc Siegel warned about this as far back as July, writing in Slate, “As many as 50,000 children, mostly from Central American countries … are not being detained for the purpose of identifying illness, with Immigration and Customs Enforcement relying on self-report of symptoms, and many have already been sent to other states, where disease can spread.”

    So has south-of-the-border disease already spread? While ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser has said that we “have no idea why it [EV-D68] showed up this year,” others have a very definite idea. They point out that Besser also said, “Viruses don't tend to respect [state] borders”; this is true because people can freely travel among states (as they should be able to). But is it any different if people can freely travel across international borders, as they should not be able to? Will disease respect the southern border any more than trespassing illegals or open-borders Obama?..."<

    Those were PC reasonings for not using the CDC recommended quarantine protocols. This President listening to no one at our peril.
