Why isn't Congress demanding that the flights be stopped? Republicans need to take the lead here, because no one else is protecting the American people from the inevitable: an Ebola crisis that will kill and sicken Americans (and others) and gum up our economy for years to come. There is no common sense! Airline employees and emergency room employees (doctors, nurses, clerks) will all be exposed, as well as the public.

Why aren't the Republicans demanding a travel ban? Not one or two Republicans, the whole lot of them should rush back to Washington, DC and issue a joint senate/house statement demanding a travel ban to or from affected countries. If not, then it must be demanded by the flying public, who should boycott air travel until sanity reigns. The airline employees themselves are being exposed to untold risks, not to mention the flying public. None of this had to happen--if a ban had been put in place from the start.

We're in a period of Divine Chastisement, Cal. We have to change as a country, turn back to God, or God will not help. We have to demand that the insane Ebola policies are changed, immediately (no flights from affected countries). Second, our troops should not be sent into hot zones. They are going to get sick and then Ebola will be in the military installations and the VA system. Congress has the power to stop this--but really, if the American people demand change, they will get it. We have to demand that the borders be closed and that sound public health care policies are put in place.
I am reading that a 10-minute Ebola blood test is on the horizon that would help distinguish Ebola from flu-caused fevers. However, long long long before this can be implemented, the entire nation will be infected through the open borders. So the Congress and American people must demand action now. I think the airline employees will ultimately demand that the insanity stop--that, and the flying public. The airline employees demanded (and got) a reprieve from the constant x-ray body scanning, which surely is going to be shown to be carcinogenic in the next 20 years. I believe the airlines may need a bailout if the executive branch does not soon come to its senses and declare a travel ban from affected countries.
3rd in line to the President is the Speaker of House, if I'm not mistaken. If Biden were to continues with awful Ebola policies (big grin notwithstanding), I believe Congress would act to save the nation. The states have the power to call for a Consti. Convention, but travel is about to be so disrupted that it will be impractical--later, after the plague passes over us, we could see a Consti. Convention. So it all depends on Congress now.
Dr. Frieden must sense that if he told the truth (that we're not following common sense public health care principles from 100 years ago), policies would have been in place that prevented Mr. Duncan from entry. As it is, I think Dr. Frieden would be fired if he spoke truth to authority; he looks afraid on TV. I'm sure the top brass of the Pentagon have misgivings about putting our troops at risk in this way--it is an inappropriate use of the military, an abuse of power. Our troops will get the disease and spread it to the VA system and military installations. Only God knows how far this disease has spread and will spread in the USA and other countries. We are not doing the right things--no one can doubt that. We'll slam the barn door shut after the horses have run away (the horses are the US public's health)--with officials declaring that "mistakes were made" and apologies preferred. Too late--the Ebola genie is now out of the bottle. Very bad times ahead for the country, I'm afraid.
We're going to get this contagion because of political correctness. Even if Congress were in session and the House demanded a travel ban from affected countries, it would die in the Senate. Even it it were passed, it would be vetoed or ignored. Maybe the administration will act when the stock market starts to really heave and the airline employees go on strike, demanding protection (as they did with the x-ray machines--they were accommodated). We're in a period of Divine Chastisement.

Ladd5, the complementarity of the two sexes is obvious to most humans (and animals); marriage has a basis in natural law . Then there is the Bible. I know, you'll say "I don't believe the Bible." But most people in the USA do believe the Bible and it is the basis of our Laws. We are a democracy, and the will of the people should not be thwarted by a sexual tyrannical minority who are imposing hedonism on the nation, to our great peril. God will not help a wayward nation.

The gay agenda also includes forcing believers to participate in gay ceremonies. This is important to them because they are in active rebellion against God.

It's not just the children. Christians are being persecuted for their refusal to participate in gay ceremonies. We are being put under the supervision of a vocal and powerful sexual tyranny. We are being coerced by hedonists, who have seized power (mainly through liberal judges imposition of nonexistent rights). As night follows day, this will not stand. Didn't stand in Rome, won't stand here. Why? God will not abide it.
