Three semesters in a year if you count the summer semester.
Nobody knows any thing about Obama's college records, his college transcripts still haven't been released.
You look pretty stupid defending someones college records if you never seen them.
And your the first person to announce that Obama earned a "Doctorate degree."
I'm certainly not blaming Obama for Ebola. He may not be the greatest, but he is certainly far from the worst that we have seen. He seems to be blamed for every damn thing that happens in the world, from Ebola to homosexuality in Africa.. It is ridiculous ! As for Ebola, it is scary and just recently two people have been isolated in WDC who are believed to be infected with the Ebola virus. One thing is for sure though, if we see more outbreaks in the US, there will be more efforts to contain and eliminate it. What about the spread of the Corona Virus from the Mid East, no one is talking about that anymore, meanwhile the hajj pilgrimage having just ended in Saudi Arabia could see the spread of the virus world-wide. May god protect us from the madness that is our world.

Obama entered Harvard Law School in the fall of 1988. He was selected as an editor of the Harvard Law Review at the end of his first year, president of the journal in his second year, and research assistant to the constitutional scholar Laurence Tribe while at Harvard for two years. During his summers, he returned to Chicago, where he worked as an associate at the law firms of Sidley Austin in 1989 and Hopkins & Sutter in 1990. After graduating with a J.D. magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, he returned to Chicago. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama
The Juris Doctor (J.D.) is a professional doctorate and first professional graduate degree in law. The degree is earned by completing law school in the United States, Canada, Australia, and other common law countries. Many who hold the degree of Juris Doctor are professionals committed to the practice of law, and may choose to focus their practice on criminal law, personal injury, family law, corporate law, and/or a wide range of other areas.
The majority of individuals holding a J.D. must pass an examination in order to be licensed to practice law within their respective jurisdictions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juris_Doctor
You don't even know what a Juris Doctor is, using your words..."if you ever attended college, you would know that"
Debating you is like shooting very large fish in a very tiny barrel.

Way too much inappropriate politicizing of the matter in this thread.
I'm definitely concerned, because my analysis tells me that, for whatever reason, the WHO and the CDC are not accurately presenting the facts about how Ebola, and particularly the Zaire strain which we're dealing with, is spread.
I also have a son who sees patients in an E.R. so my awareness is heightened.
So the situation is definitely on my mind.
I will reserve answering the poll until it's revealed that someone who had contact with Duncan prior to him "showing symptoms" comes down with Ebola.
I'm hoping for the best, that this outbreak can be contained and ended.
But we're dealing with a disease strain that historically has had an 80-90 percent fatality rate in third-world countries populated with undernourished people and a 50 percent fatality rate today with otherwise healthier people receiving a more effective healthcare response.
There is yet no vaccine (to prevent this strain of Ebola) and no specific cure that can be injected.
We are also told by the only study (presented here at DP in another thread) that the virus can linger on materials for over six days, from where it can be picked up.
The incubation period isn't "21 days", it's "2 to 21 days", which depends on how much of the virus enters one's body initially and how depleted one's immune system already is.
My concerns include, not just the loss of life directly from the disease, but the potential to kill our economy if people choose not to go anywhere but the grocery store (and then not without wearing their HAZMAT suit, assuming, of course, they trust that their food isn't contaminated) and other tragic reactive cascades.
Then the government might simply tell us that "we have to keep going to work and we have to keep shopping, or we're as good as dead then for sure, so just keep on keeping on, praying that your number won't be up today, and if it is, then just accept it -- whatever you do, don't panic or spread panic, as that would be worse than dying from the disease itself".
So I'm watching the Dallas/Fort Wt. area closely, and the country as a whole, to see who comes down with the disease next, hoping no one will.
This isn't the flu we're dealing with here -- this is a disease with the potential to kill tens of millions of Americans .. or more .. and very, very painfully, I might add.
It makes intelligent sense to be concerned .. very concerned.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.
Slightly concerned? A bit yes...
