I hope you guys are listeing on what is happeing with Ebola here in the US

Looks like Ebola is now loose in the US, thanks to a CDC that could not find it's you-know-what with both hands.

The the ICU unit that had the Ebola patient stacked the contaminated
cloths, bedsheets, IV bottles, etc.. in a corner to the ceiling.

The workers did NOT have full coverage. Their hazmat gear did not protect the neck (neck was exposed on all of them while treating the patient.)

They let one of the ICU workers (actually I bet all of them went SOMEWHERE) to fly on a plane just days before the diagnosis they had Ebola. And that plane is still flying passengers.

It's almost like no one over here respects what Ebola can do and took the CDC 'guesses' as to how it is transferred as gospel.

Well we now know, the 'science' is not settled on how it is transferred.

I would presume FULL HAZMAT COVERAGE would be mandatory from now own, and a bleach wash of the gear once you want to take it off.

Meanwhile, I bet alot of people are now infected.

But don't worry, Obama has now quit the golf course and is actually meeting with his cabinet (if he can remember who they are.)

I don't know why people are making such a big deal over this. More Americans die from crazy Brady Campaign members than Ebola.

The media loves turning everything into some sensational BS.

You BET??? In other words, you guess, you speculate, and your wild imagination has nothing more to go on?

When you're not busy fearmongering here, do you find crowded theaters in which to yell "fire?"

Tell me, chicken little, what do you have to substantiate that the sky is indeed falling?

If we would put influenza above ebola, we'd save a helluva lot more lives.

All over the world there are waterfront bars. Nearly every one of them has hot chicks on staff or in attendance. They have good shrimp, calamari, lobster, crab, or whatever you want. Don't forget grouper sandwiches. Cocktails? Plenty. Stop worrying about Ebola. Waitresses in those little tan shorts is what life is about.

And we have vaccines for influenza. Sometimes they work better than others but, on average, they work pretty well.

Besides, it is primarily old people who die from the flu. People with weakened immune systems. Regrettably, people such as myself...

But what they don't do is die by pooping out their intestines. Bleeding from their eyes and ears. That sort of thing...

To date, we have just two home-grown cases. That's not a lot and, if it stops there, no harm done. But we are monitoring a couple of hundred and if they don't behave any better than the second nurse and the NBC commentator, things will get a lot worse.

I don't think voluntary isolation is going to be a winning strategy. People have more important things to do than sitting around the house, waiting to get sick.

I'm not worried about me. I'm more concerned with my elderly parents and my grandkids.

I'm not concerned that they'll get ebola. I'm concerned about the flu.

I stand corrected. But from where do those infected fruit bats come from?
