    Are You Personally Scared About the Ebola Virus?

    Ok.. So this Ebola virus seems to have everyone all in a upheaval. The media is covering non-stop, people are scared ****less, some are blaming that damn guy named Obama! Are you personally scared about the Ebola virus being in the US?

    People should be blaming that other black guy, Thomas Eric Duncan for bringing ebola to the US, not obama.

    I'm not scared at all and I've even been to a hospital that had an ebola patient there when I visited.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    No. The US medical system can handle ebola. Basically every single person that Duncan looked at is under surveillance or quarantine.

    No. I know a manufactured media frenzy when I see it.

    As for they "But what if it mutates and goes airborne?!" hysteria, if viruses did that even a fraction as often as people thought they did, we'd all be dead.

    No.

    Yet the govt. should do a better screening of those coming into the US from known infected areas.

    Heck. I live in a small town in Arizona. A resident who just came back from Africa has placed himself and family in the 21 day isolation.

    The probability of dying of Ebola is so far down the list of possible causes of death as to be totally off the radar for me.
