Just in case anyone isn't following the world news in detail, Rwanda has severe travel restrictions against the US!!!! Why? Because we are a country with Ebola cases, along with Spain!!! A third world nation has more sense than our banana republic leader!
I don't see it. As a scientist, I've had an interest in these stories for a few decades now. The headline always reads 'AI will surpass humans in 10 years'. The human brain is not a binary computer, but a quantum chemical one that can multiplex to an extent that would melt any silicon chip. We can think of memories and images effectively instantly because that is how those images were impressed to begin with. We can relegate low-level functions automatically without a decision. These 'instinct' and 'intuition' aspects are not well understood, and are again probably quantum mechanical in nature. It is not just a matter of calculations per second....
Amex has a better policy for this! Great post!
Obozo himself admitted that the GOP cuts had nothing to do with our ability to handle Ebola. Three weeks ago he stated that we were ready for any patients (and he doubted we would have any). He said nothing about not being prepared due to lack of funds.
If it was a Leftist politician who was scolded by someone too strongly in their youth, the story on MSNBC would be "the miracle candidate who has overcome severe mental hurdles and overcame discrimination and hatred". When it is a GOP governor with a crushed spine anyone can see on an X-ray, it is a 'supposed' disability. I'm quite sure Gov. Abbott would love nothing better than to not be disabled. I'm not so sure any one on the Left would, as they would prefer to milk it for all it is worth.
When a die-hard, Leftist like MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski is cringing about it, maybe she should re-think how 'appropriate' it is.
How many people would love to go back and change how we handled HIV when it appeared on the world stage? Probably most of us, Left and Right. The disease has cost tons of lives and a good amount of fortune to boot. We now have that fleeting window of time to get rid of Ebola. We'd have to do some pretty draconian stuff, but in the process we'd save millions of lives and billions of dollars (that would almost certainly come from the US) in the future. Our silly POTUS wants to be remembered? Well this is is chance. And once again, he can't even live up to that minimum expectation.
What would they care if 1, 10 or 100 million die of Ebola? They only care about the elite. Alinsky-ites would be chomping at the bit for the anarchy that would follow a pandemic that would wreak havoc in the world.
Wendy Davis would have readily aborted any child of her own she knew would end up in a wheelchair. That is what racist eugenicists like her believe about the value of human life.

Here is a logic experiment for the Hollywood types pushing this Islamaphobia garbage: Are you afraid to die? Answer (most people): Yes. Will you convert to Islam? Answer (most people): No Muslims: Then you (per the Koran) should die! So if you are afraid of dying, you should be afraid of muslims. QED. Islamaphobia is infecting Hollywood elites.
