getlostinmyarms: What is your take on the "Ebola Pandemic"? I see the virus as serious, but I think the media is blowing it way out of proportion to scare people and get a story. What do you think?

redbloodedamerica:

Well, I’ve been waiting to hear the outcome of what’s been happening just like everyone else.  Ebola is of course a serious disease with a survival rate of only 30%, but I don’t think it’s cause for panic or alarm.

My problem with this outbreak is the dog and pony show we’ve had to endure from the President and the Center for Disease Control.  I understand it’s part of their job to keep the public from panicking but I believe they have shown they were completely ill-prepared for this type of scenario.  That’s probably because the CDC has been using our tax dollars for everything but disease prevention.  Just like NASA is more interested in climate change rather than space exploration under Obama, the CDC has been working hard like a good government bureaucracy to meddle in your personal liberties instead of preparing ourselves to properly tackle this problem.

Furthermore, I’m not sure if it’s the airline lobbyists that are convincing Obama or what’s going on, but there’s absolutely no logical reason why we shouldn’t stop all incoming travel from Ebola-stricken countries in Africa.  Many African countries are banning travel just for this reason.

What’s really illogical and bizarre is the liberal (and even libertarian) reasoning why travel restrictions to places like Nigeria are a bad idea:

  1. It just won’t work. (Really, this is their #1 reason. Fatalism.)
  2. It would actually make stopping the outbreak in West Africa more difficult. (How does restricting outgoing travel disrupt incoming supply and aid.  That’s right…it doesn’t.)
  3. It will devastate the economies of West Africa. (Who cares?!)

Just take those three reasons in for a second.  We’re only suggesting the quarantine of a handful of trouble countries (like we’ve done with other trouble countries throughout history) while we contain the problem and fix it.  That is a pretty easy, proven tactic.  Instead, for some reason, these geniuses choose to shrug their shoulders and just open the floodgates anyway.  I mean…we’re only delaying the inevitable, right?

Lastly, if the lie of closing airline travel wasn’t pathetic enough, I’m sick of being lied to about everything else involved with this.  The President claims it most likely wouldn’t hit the US, but if it did, we would be prepared to handle it.  Clearly, he was wrong both on his estimates and his assurances, because not only did this drop in our country shortly after making this speech, it also spread to workers in a good hospital that obviously wasn’t prepared to handle it.  The CDC also keeps giving us these bogus assurances that they’re checking travelers for the disease, that it can’t be spread when people are not showing symptoms, and that it can’t be transported through the air.

Look, I don’t think this is going to spread like some people do.  I definitely do not believe it’s some kind of government-engineered “bio weapon used to control our population.  The Ebola scare will most likely be long gone in a couple of weeks and all that will be left is more lost credibility on a federal bureaucracy and its administration that has done nothing but let our country down since its inception.
