Unemployment must be paying a lot these days...
The article does state that part of Firestone's policy is isolation. I wonder if we still have flights to Liberia and other countries with Ebola outbreaks because our government is somehow making the airlines do so. As far as comparing the policy of a private corporation to government, I don't think it's a valid comparison. If you don't like a company's policies, you can probably find a similar company, with different policies, in the same country. Also, if you break company policy, you may be "terminated" whereas if you break government laws, you may be terminated. I do believe we should be restricting flights to/from countries with Ebola outbreaks. I also think RP's information about the infections is a little out of date - others have been infected.

Do the airlines need the OK of the US gov't to protect their own people? If I were the CEO of a major airline, I'd give the order to stop all flights to those countries myself. And if the White House tried to coerce me to rescind my decision "or else" I would let the White House know what effect that would have on their rosy unemployment rate.

Hmm, the "greedy capitalistic airlines" restricted flights into Ebola infested countries, but the "benevolent comunists of the world" urged them to lift those restrictions: http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/08/28/who-official-urges-airlines-to-lift-flight-restrictions-amid-ebola-outbreak/ So, who actually looks out for their people?
"I don't have a whole lot of problem with 40 to 90% of the human race dying before the end of the year" This is probably the goal of the enviros. They think we're the scourge of the planet, so getting rid of most of us will make things better. I don't agree with you about having no problem with 40%+ of the population dying. The disease won't be selective of the people it kills, so everyone from the welfare recipient to Bill Gates will be on its list. I don't want to imagine how badly society will break down with even a 40% kill ratio. 40% of the doctors who treat diseases (probably more, actually, because they'll be dealing directly with it) will go, along with 40% of power plant operators, 40% of produce drivers, etc, etc.

I think I'd change "awesome government power " to "horrific government power " - it's awesome to civil servants, but horrific to the rest of us...

The original article was on TCSDaily, which no longer exists. So the above is an excerpt from the article. Another excerpt is from here: http://blog.kir.com/archives/2006/12/limited_over_po.asp

Here's a different take, from a different guy with a PhD in economics, as to the motivations of politicians: http://joebuckley.wordpress.com/2008/04/07/money-or-power-decisions-decisions/
