Whaddya wanna bet that he’d be the first one calling for a private jet to carry him home?

The two US aid workers with Ebola are being flown to Atlanta for treatment and The Donald is upset. The facility where the two are going to be taken is especially designed for exactly this sort of thing, and there seems to me to  be less risk from repatriating two sick citizens than allowing international flights to land on our shores to visit, say, our casinos.

    Merchants of fear —

    Fear is what the government deals in. Remember the avian flu scare? What about the swine flu? Is there a terrorist hiding under your bed? A bogey man in the closet?

    “. . . Diagnostic methods for IDing Ebola in those 3 countries are uncertain. Therefore, we should only consider the category labeled “confirmed,” and even then we should have doubts.

    So let’s look at the total for confirmed Ebola case numbers in those countries.

    It’s 814.

    Confirmed number of deaths? 456.

    Now consider another WHO report. This one is titled: “Influenza (Seasonal) World Health Organization,” dated April 2009.

    It’s the WHO fact sheet on regular seasonal flu, the kind that is said to infect people globally, year after year, like clockwork.


    Annual number of severe cases: 3-5 million.

    Annual number of deaths: between 250,000 and 500,000.

    Remember, that’s every year—not a one-time shot. . . .”

    My pharmacist told me she has people asking for an Ebola antidote. Of course here in Florida death lurks around every corner and it’s wise to be prepared.

    Given the total dishonesty of the Feds can anyone trust them to keep ebola contained?

    ‘Obama Signs Executive Order to Detain Americans With ‘Respiratory Illnesses’

    Amendment comes in wake of Ebola scare’

    “As the Ebola outbreak continues to cause concern, President Barack Obama has signed an amendment to an executive order that would allow him to mandate the apprehension and detention of Americans who merely show signs of “respiratory illness.”

    The executive order, titled Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable Diseases, amends executive order 13295, passed by George W. Bush in April 2003, which allows for the, “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.”

    The amendment signed by Obama replaces subsection (b) of the original Bush executive order which referred only to SARS. Obama’s amendment allows for the detention of Americans who display, “Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled.”

    Although Ebola was listed on the original executive order signed by Bush, Obama’s amendment ensures that Americans who merely show signs of respiratory illness, with the exception of influenza, can be forcibly detained by medical authorities. . . .”
