Here's a thought experiment: You're the Secretary of Defense and you've just learned that the nukes are in-flight and 200 American cities are about to be vaporized. Do you go on the air to warn 100 million Americans that they will be dead in 20 minutes? That exact scenario happened -- twice -- during my tour in SAC in the 70's. They were just computer glitches, but nobody knew it at the time. We scrambled the bombers and sat around wondering why the "alert" wasn't cancelled afterwards. I didn't learn the truth until after the cold war ended and the truth came out in the news. It doesn't really matter what the government is telling us. The only thing we can depend on is that they will lie to us unless they need for us to know the truth. So unless you've already made your preps, it doesn't matter anyway. By the time the threat is certain, it will be too late to do anything anyway.
Do some research before shooting off your mouth. I did and I discovered that Ebola has been clinically tested to remain viable for as long as TWO WEEKS outside the human body, depending on conditions. TWO DAYS is typical, and you will fing that on the CDC web site.
Isolation is obvious. But it only delays the inevitable in order to buy time. What about vaccines? There are many ebola survivors from which a vaccine could be produced. And it is a stable virus that does not use rapid evolution as a defense strategy, the way the flu and Aids viruses do. Creating a vaccine for ebola would be much simpler than a flu vaccine. "Cures" for viral infections are practically impossible, but vaccines are easy to produce. WHY IS NO-ONE WORKING ON A VACCINE?

What the Arab World Produces

Wow. In addition to completely missing the point...again...you also missed a few other opportunities to insult me. For instance, if I am "politically correct" for calling Arabs, gansta rappa's, and NFL neandrathals "two-legged animals", then in your bizarro universe, I'm probably also a pinko communist for reading Townhall, right?

I don't think my point was that hard to discern, but here it is again: Whether it's Arabs, gansta rappa's, or million-dollar NFL neanderthals -- when we dignify the barbaric primitive behavior of two-legged animals by calling it a "culture", we merely encourage more of the same. We got much less such bad behavior when we laughed at their complete absence of human culture and exploited their dumabassitude without guilt.

So, Dennis, I guess you're saying that Arab culture is violent, produces nothing of value, is practically illiterate, hates everybody, and abuses its women. Couldn't you say the same thing about Black culture? Or for that matter, NFL "culture"? I think I'm detecting a theme, here. Seems like we got a lot less barbaric behavior from all quarters before we started calling it a "culture". Maybe we need to quit dignifying two-legged animals wherever we find them with the word "culture".
Now wait a minute, John! Your over-generalizing this notion that no-one can determine the worth of a life over 75. Dr. Emanual has a point in his own case, that we can probably extend to others like him. If, like Dr. Emanual, you're still a Dumbocrat after 75 years on this earth, after observing the unbroken string of Dumbocrat failures and dumb ideas going back over 160 years to when they first got together to defend slavery -- you are obviously to dumb to continue life on this fair planet. So Dr. Emanual is right. We do need death panels -- but only for Dumbocrats!

And today the useful idiots we know as Dumbocrats can today still usurp the White House by running the same game plan that their soviet masters put into motion a generation before they were born -- and that caused their master's destruction as we all watched it on TV.
The only friends we have in backwardistan are Israel and Kurdistan, who have to live next door to the nuthouse. Those guys are perfectly capable of defending themselves if we SELL them some guns. ISIS is merely the latest tribe of lunatics in the nuthouse. Personally, I don't see the point of a new war in backwardistan to defend the Shia tribe of lunatics from ISIS tribe of lunatics, no matter how many dumb__ss journalists they decapitate. Declare war on murderous lunatics, and I'm there. Picking sides in the asylum -- not so much. But OK, I got voted down, we're going to war. Can we at least agree on WINNING the war? I know it's been about 70 years since we won a war, but here's the secret formula that was passed down to me from my victorious ancestors: 1) Declare war. 2) Observe as our glorious professional warriors open a giant can of unrestrained whup_ss on the enemy until no more enemies can be found to kill. 3) Declare victory Note that there is no "boots on the ground" restriction in the formula.
