Don’t Quarantine Me Bro!

A Medical Worker has been released from observation prior to the recognized Ebola incubation period after returning from West Africa.

Ms. Hickcox came back from West Africa and was quarantined for 7 days. During that period of time she secured a Lawyer.

The incubation period (as far as we can tell) for Ebola is currently at 21 days.

Ms. Hickcox has been released from the quarantine and ask politely to quarantine herself voluntarily at Home in Maine.

The White House believes this is the correct way to proceed.
The CDC, read White House, believes this is the correct way to proceed.

While Ms. Hickcox has said openly that she may, or may not, have Ebola… her treatment is uncalled for.

Clearly Nurse Hickcox believes the idea of quarantine for a disease that does not present for 21 days is inhumane… as she has stated.

And, She along with her lawyers promise to sue.

I would be lying if I said I was surprised…

However, isn’t her admission that she ‘may or may not’ have the disease exactly the reason for the quarantine?

I will ask all of you…

Is the inconvenience of an extra 14 days too much to ask if it saves the life of a single child?

Is the expectation that we treat rapidly fatal diseases for which we have no cure with extreme caution unreasonable if it could save the lives of our children?

Wouldn’t you expect Medical Personnel to ‘Do No Harm’ and err on the side of such caution?

And finally…

Wouldn’t you expect the White House to agree with such wisdom until we can get a better handle on a rapidly fatal disease… if not for us, for the children?

We have all heard this appeal for decades.  It has been used ad nauseam.

And yet, where are the hand wringing, bleeding heart, Liberal Leftists with their concern?

Are they too occupied with the latest, fresh from Latin America, killer of children called the Enterovirus D68?  Nope… not there either.

Is the Press voicing their concerns for the children?  Nope.

How about our President and his party who care about everything more than we do?  Nope.

So I guess “Equal Opportunity” now only applies to Deadly Communicable Diseases.

If not in America, then Where can a Killer Microbe get a Fair Shake?


Think Ebola

Why would “Think Ebola” be appropriate for Health Care Facilities Nation Wide, but not for the General Public?

So, in other words, if you work in a hospital you should be thinking about Ebola.

And if you don’t work in a hospital… no worries.  You’ll be fine as long as you don’t think about Ebola.

If there has ever been an illustration of how Government cannot handle a crisis, this is it.

And I haven’t started on a very real Killer which is approaching epidemic levels called the Enterovirus D68. It’s here and it’s already killed 6… 4 of which were young children.

You must ask “Why?”.

I offer that ramping up the level of concern being experienced by the American Public will lead to obvious questions the current Administration and Political Party in Charge do not want asked.

Such as:

Why have we not secured the borders and continue to allow medically unscreened illegal immigrants into the United States and then fly them where ever they wish while placing the children into public schools across the nation?

Or,

Why have we not simply stopped incoming flights from West Africa?

Or,

Do you think the Terrorist’s are watching this?

And then come the profoundly enlightening if not horribly uncomfortable answers:

The Democrat Party refuses to secure the borders because the future of Socialism in America depends on a brand new class of taxpayer-funded welfare addicts who will always vote for them… damn the health consequences.

The Administration does not want to do anything which could be positioned as ‘racist’, which stopping those who are traveling from West Africa might imply.  But the most obvious result of stopping those flights would be to lead all of us immediately back to the first question regarding our borders, and that cannot be allowed to happen… damn the health consequences.

And, of course the Terrorists are watching… and learning. We are doing nothing because it’s not in the best interest of those who want to control us.

Damn all of the Consequences.
