    Military quick ANYTHING isn’t allowed to be employed on citizens. It’s why we have a national guard

    We just gave this azhat 225 million dollars?
    Seems there are lots better things could be done here with that money.

    Unintended consequences, MR… Gives bad guys a way to exactly position planes, easier to guide a missile to it from a greater in monitored distance.

    And sadly, that is purportedly what the radical Muslims are again focusing upon.

    Uhm, no. Maybe sadly, but America does not sacrifice a plane load of innocents for secret control of an emerging technology. Even if bureaucrats tried, there would be information leaks from the underlings about what happened.

    America might interdict scientists and claim national security issues, but not so publicly.

    But Russia and China? Iran? North Korea? It’s a valid theory, just not the right perpetrator IMHO.

    She is 21 days out now, and drudge says she tested negative.
    She self quarantined, so the nations refusing entry were refusing all passengers over one person who was NOT ever going to be in their country.

    And that is those nations’ right. Sad it jacked up not inexpensive vacations for thousands of others, though.

    And sad third world countries understand the importance of borders and quarantine but our leaders don’t.

    Maybe passengers can sue CDC for negligence in the way they ‘helped’ the hospital with the Ebola case… Paying out for vacations would beat paying three times what was allocated to emerging disease for community organizer crap like sidewalks, eating better and subsidizing community grocery stores…

    in this real world, teachers lie to the students or at best tell half truths and those students internalize those as truths, and then will see the world through that distorted prism.

    It’s been happening for decades in big cities. The results are obvious, but the elites could care less, so long as it provides them with a docile, easily manipulated voter base.

    the media hides the truth from those who are thinking who are left, but today’s schools are happy to provide strictly limited and intentionally skewed or incomplete education.

    which means imho cancelling contracts is long overdue. And any parent or student siding with the teachers is driven by emotion not logic… not the way we should be making decisions as individuals or a nation.

    Governors should decline this request.
    This is not what National guard troops are trained to do.

    In fact, this guarantees wider spread of exposed individuals on their return home, and more rapid exposure to the public at large…

    Is it looking to anyone else like that is the INTENT of this President?

    Stock up. And don’t let your son or daughter join the Guard… that $18000 signing ‘bonus’ looks pretty good to a young kid. contracting ebola half way around the world from storm run off that leaks under your tent would be an awful way to die.

    i thought the spokesperson would know how to speak… just because a word sounds ominous and impactful does not mean it should be used inappapropriately, especially from the President’s mouthpiece.

    There is no reasonable argument for not putting barricades to ebola in place at our borders our more accurately OUTSIDE our borders.

    Is the President advocating we repeal drunk driving laws, or at least stop funding sobriety checkpoints?

    What is perverse is the idea that UNTRAINED National Guard troops should be sent to the hot zone, housed in floorless structures where rain may carry the disease to them, forced to wear NBC gear in the heat and humidity and enforcing a quarantine/ barrier at great personal risk, BUT the nation as a whole should not expect such a barrier…

    they have not fielded a single reason that barring flights inbound from affected countries would hurt this nation, much less the source countries. And yet with misapplied words like perverse and misapplied focus to foreign nations rather than US citizens and interests, Obama’s political machine grinds on, clearly willing to host an outbreak of ebola nationwide rather than risk offending a handful of African states who have to be shaking their collective heads… ask them what they would be doing if their neighboring country had the outbreak… would they be welcoming immigrants or locking the gates?

    And when this persists as a host in rats or dogs or mice… Obama, the gift that keeps on giving.

    if he was speaking, he was lying.

    and now he’s going to damage states’ national guard by using them in the hot zone.

    so much for trained staff being used.

    someone in a position of power at the federal or state level has to stand up and say enough.

  • [8] October 16, 2014 at 12:44pm

    the logic limited think tank running things is expected today to activate NATIONAL GUARD troops to go to Liberia.

    so much for the claims of those on these boards that the 3000 going to Africa were all trained in dealing with infectious disease.

    what better way to optimize and maximize the spread of exposed soldiers to the 50 states and to the civilian population, but to use National Guard troops…

    When is someone in Washington going to point and say what everyone knows… this King has no clothes on!

  • [4] October 16, 2014 at 12:21pm

    Crist’s opponent was not going to ‘win’ at a college, anyway, and that was an evil catch 22
    raise issue with the fan and get jeered about it.
    leave the fan alone and Crist looks cool and calm and you sweat under the lights.

    People who LISTENED to the Kennedy Nixon debate thought Nixon won. People who watched it, with the young handsome easy going Democrat, said the opposite. Appearance matters in a debate.

    And perhaps what matters most is that the body putting on the debate both ALLOWED Crist to cheat and did not stand up for Scott’s reaction.

  • [11] October 16, 2014 at 12:13pm

    when bureaucracy is the altar at which you worship, logic, reason, and common sense are ignored.

    Yes the suits are hard to maneuver in . Yes they limit visibility.
    It requires redundant staff… all of them protected, some standing back and watching out for others– the union road worker concept but applied with a real purpose.

    Oh, and that’s the condition our troops will be trying to protect our scientists and maintaining order over in equatorial Africa. so there will be limited vision, mobility, and high heat tolerance issues.

    hospitals are trying to get ready, but few have negative pressure rooms in their ED’s.
    Fewer have observation units with a negative pressure room…

    oh, a negative pressure room has basicly a vaccuum that sucks air into the room and then into a HEPA filter,so that no germs/ viri/ etc can escape the room.

    hospitals don’t have the staff to have 2 people stand in the man trap while 2 more care for the patient after spending 20 minutes suiting up, their only job to then decontaminate the caregivers before they get out of their protective suits (and where i suspect the exposures occurred, but who really knows).

    hospitals have busy waiting rooms where symptomatic patients sit in close proximity coughing and sneezing and awaiting their assessment.

    hospital ED staff do not usually meet you wearing even a mask and gloves, much less eye protection.

    with a 21 day incubation, those infected have time to go home, and as they become symptomatic to spread the disease.

    and there’s no real help from CDC… their press releases are illogical and contradictory. Their suggestion of ‘ebola hospitals’ doesn’t deal with getting patients triaged and delivered.

    the only ‘positive’ thing so far? there are fewer people taking chronic and minor/temporary problems to the ED already… numbers are down at all of the sites i cover. EDs have long been the ‘clinics of the uninsured’ (hence the reality that EVERYONE already had healthcare).

    No, we’re far from ready, no one is.

    i’d be more impressed if instead of the Today show she was speaking to the Texas State Medical Board, and was less hyperbolic about not going for any care. she leveled lots of emotion laden charges without the specificity i would expect to prove her point.

    she may be entirely right. but i don’t trust scientific information and criticism levied through the media before the proper channels have been employed and are on board… that’s how we the the story on cold fusion every two or three years. oh, and the plethora of world ending by global warming fear mongering stories.

    on the ‘bright side’ here’s another nurse who CARED FOR AN EBOLA PATIENT AND THEN THOUGHT IT WISE TO JUMP ON A PLANE… personal responsibility does play a role, especially when the higher order bureaucracy breaks down. 2 of 75 care givers for Duncan came up positive for ebola. will this nurse from treating the infected nurse? will she have carried ebola to the Today show stage? I can only imagine Lauer is having the entire set bleached, given his… proclivities.

    Unc, saying you cannot seal the border and so no effort should be made to even try is an obviously facetious statement… not all patients can be saved by surgery, so no surgery should be attempted.

    A travel ban limits the possible avenues of exposure here in the US.
    And while I am sorry for those sick and dying in Africa and support our efforts to help them, the FIRST job of the people in Washington DC and at CDC is to protect Americans.

    And since we have not tried to close the border your claim cannot be verified.
    Once upon a time we had a quarantine station for immigrants… it was called Ellis Island.

    And the immediate logical response to an outbreak is to QUARANTINE. But here out of political will or fear, we are not putting foreign travelers in quarantine, while we ARE quarantining American citizens… Yet again, in this administration it is better to NOT be a citizen than to be an American.

  • [76] October 16, 2014 at 10:31am

    MSM first has to admit that they have been unethical and inappropriate for, say, 8 years as a minimum. Isn’t going to happen.

    It’s like the MSNBC health correspondent for whom the quarantine did not matter because she ‘knew better’ than the guidelines… problems are because of other people’s behavior, and rules are meant for other people, as well.

    There have clearly been problems at this hospital, but i don’t see a fair and equitable public hearing on the Today show… did Lauer vet what that nurse was saying?

    And blaming the hospital, which i expect will be financially ruined and will close by this debacle, instead of the CDC for unpreparedness is unfair… Emory and the other treatment hospitals have hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment and facility for single patients, and small teams specially trained to handle such diseases. That is NOT true of most hospitals.

    Sadly, what Presbyterian in Dallas did is what most hospitals will do… their best effort. And if CDC is not pro active and sending people to help a situation created by their POLITICAL decision not to at least attempt a ban on inbound flights to limit exposures here, CDC bears more responsibility than a hospital trying to adapt and learn on the fly.

    The first real scare locally was sent from one city hospital to another, effectively ‘exposing’ both, though it turned out to be malaria. The second in Kansas City led to the patient– with typhus– led to false assurance and a medical scramble

    he did not cancel anything…
    postponed, perhaps.
    unless it is a direct threat to DC or those whispering into his ear, none of what happens to we little people matters. our sacrifice is worth his realizing his goal of ‘change’

    mojo, i like the idea of being able to fix it…

    that said, i tried to make a fix and hit save and everything… and nothing changed

    and on the ipad earlier story every few seconds the apps store opened trying to sell a stupid game– not always the same game. so i’ll withhold my praise or criticism about editing.

  • [7] October 15, 2014 at 12:16pm

    East, it would be interesting to see if the soldiers coming back are RIF’d at a greater rate than their fellow soldiers.

    but the troops who will fire on Americans are not the troops in place today… that will be the illegal immigrants promised the right to stay– no bother becoming a citizen, they have to pay taxes and all that– for their obedient service to Uncle Sam.

  • [6] October 15, 2014 at 12:13pm

    true, D, and they should shoulder the lion’s share.
    BUT when you worked on an ebola patient, and another member of the health care team came down with ebola, it behooves you to think of others– including your family– and do the right thing. 21 days. what flight could not wait 21 days.

    and if it was financial concerns, any airline that refused to refund a ticket based on the explanation ‘i might have ebola’ should be put out of business.

    just because the political leaders of this nation are acting like fools does not mean the rest of us should follow.
