    It differs from mine. Making a comment on some blog is not news. Post that crap in bloggers or chat.

    Why does it bug you? Granted there are probably some that do it to make money from their blog but I'll bet that the vast majority are like you and me...they want conservative opinions to get disseminated and spread.

    Conservatives don't have any voice in the "news" and FreeRepublic is a great way to influence minds and win hearts. It seems that you're making that difficult to do and detracting from the overall message of conservatism instead of adding to it.

    You made a comment on a blog and that constitutes news?

    I know many people have told you this but I really appreciate people who do this. I don't have time to scour through millions of websites trying to find news of a conservative bent. I go to basically 3 websites normally for news, FreeRepublic being one. I appreciate it when someone alerts me to something and in this case it happened not far from where I live... I saw "Lansing" and was interested in the story and the news.

    I think that berating and badgering those who choose to post from blogs is doing a disservice to many people on FreeRepublic. So what if get more hits to their blog? Who cares as long as it's conservative information getting out?

    I just dont' see how this is a winning issue for Democrats. It's not. Across the board people instinctively understand that it's illogical NOT to quarantine people who have a high chance of carrying a deadly disease into the country. Yet Obama is pushing against this common sense measure. It's not political correctness..when did Ebola ever get politically correct and what's the angle on that?

    After fighting against the idea I'm forced to think that Obama actually wants a big Ebola outbreak over here. I can't see any other explanation for his behavior.

    Saying that Ebola can’t carry though the air has always seemed ridiculous to me. Just because it seems ridiculous to you doesn't mean that you're right. If ebola were truly airborne, we would expect to see a LOT more people with ebola.

    If you're comparing it to the flu or a cold it's not a good comparison. There are hundreds of strains of the flu and cold so when a bunch of people are sick they're not all sick from the same strain. The one strain of ebola going around right now, the Zaire strain, is the only one. But it's just as easy to catch it as it is to catch any single strain of cold or flu virus. And it's caught in pretty much the same way.

    Well, he was bound to lose the House, but I’ve found myself wondering too whether he’s purposely trying to lose the Senate. If so, why? Does he figure with a GOP Senate, the House will try impeachment and that will backfire on them? I don’t see where it would change the outcome of any Executive Orders strategy although some of them might constitute grounds for impeachment.

    I think with a GOP house and senate it would be easier for him to basically blame the Republicans for every bad thing and then further implement his plan of an imperial presidency, a lawless president, on his way to destroying the constitution and the country.

    Until the population develops antibodies for the infection, the risk of pandemic remains.

    And that's really what separates ebola from other viruses that affect humans. We're so used to the common cold and flu's and our bodies being able to fight them off relatively easily due to the anti-bodies. No such thing with Ebola. It's "new" to almost all humans.

    It’s as airborne as the common cold already. If someone has Ebola and sneezes the virus is there. The common cold is spread mostly by touching an object that has been touched or coughed on by someone with the virus and then by that person rubbing or touching their eyes, nose or mouth. Ebola spreads the same exact way.

    The Ebola virus is actually pretty hard to catch. The easiest viruses to catch are the respiratory viruses—things like influenza and the cold viruses. Since Ebola is not a respiratory virus, it is not normally contained within the nasal secretions. It also is not airborne. It is a bloodborne pathogen, and as such, does not spread by casual contact.

    It is present in all body fluids, including snot, sweat and spit. When someone sneezes, coughs or breathes the virus goes out with the fluid. That's why the cdc recommends at least a three foot buffer for those without ppe.

    Monrovia, in Liberia, is a city of close to a million people. It is also the center of the outbreak right now. Even there, in the heart of the outbreak, there just aren’t that many cases. If Ebola were very contagious, it would have swept across the entire continent of Africa by now, and be moving across Europe, Asia, the Americas, etc. Look how quickly the influenza virus moves—it goes around the entire world in weeks.

    I think you're confusing the different strains of influenza and/or common colds. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of strains of influenza all of which are closely related. One "strain" does not circle around the world in weeks. The Spanish flu, a very virulent flu, took a year before it mutated into a milder form.

    By comparison the Zaire strain of Ebola has only been in the wild since spring of this year...for what...7 or 8 months..and has already spread far beyond it's original origin. Cases are doubling every 3 or 4 weeks. One doesn't have to be a math expert to figure that within a year using a doubling every month there will be over 61,000,000 new cases with about 70% of them dying...or 43,000,000 dead. In a year.

    Now yes, I'll grant it would spread faster if it were a flu, BUT only because a symptom of the flu is sneezing and cough which spreads it more. But a virus is a virus. Once it's outside of the body via sweating, coughing, sneezing, spitting, bleeding, snot whatever it's out and is just as infectious. Ebola even more so because it takes a very small viral load to infect.

    If you don't think it's a big deal then you must believe it's going to be stopped somehow. What exactly is going to stop the Eboloa virus in West Africa?

    As a rule, I don't touch anything that other people have touched without disinfection. And I almost never get sick. There is a lot of stuff that is way more contagious than Ebola out there.

    That's the kind of oversimplification and denial that has helped to contribute to the current epidemic in Africa.

    In those African countries where Ebola is out of control people had the same mentality. Some believed it was a plot by the whites against the blacks. Others believed it didn't exist. Others simply refused to believe that it was easy to catch. And now it's still out of control and just as easy, if not easier, to catch.

    The only reason, the only reason, why people aren't coming down with it right now left and right in the US is that our country is vast and the incidence of the disease is low. It's as easy to catch as any other virus. It spreads very much like the common cold and many other viruses...a contaminated person touches something and then someone else touches that object and then rubs their eye, touches their nose, mouth or face.

    There's not a whole lot of surfaces or objects here in the US yet that can spread it. There's tons in the West African countries and it's spreading.

    When it takes hold here it will be just as easy to catch.

    And as long as it's out of control in Africa it's only a matter of time until it takes hold here. There is no cure. There is no vaccine. It has a 70% mortality rate.

    Jamal Simmons, a veteran Democratic aide, said politicians never “get to choose what the public thinks is important so they must hit the balls that come their way.”
    “What makes this cycle seem especially dominated by errant issues is the lack of policy proposals or substantive messages about agendas coming from either side,” he argued. “In campaigns about nothing, election debates tend to be dominated by anything."
    There’s also been a shift in media, with even the 24-hour news cycle appearing dated in the era of the internet and social media.
    “Part of what’s going on is the way the media works,” Zelizer said. “It’s not necessarily that there’s more issues, it’s the quick attention span media cycle where we move from one crisis to another.”

    In other words Democrats (and Republicans) are lamenting the fact that REAL news can't be managed anymore. The birth of news sources outside of the lame stream press means that political parties can no longer use the media to "craft" a narrative. In other words, the parties are finding it increasingly difficult to manipulate the minds and hearts of Americans to get their votes and continue their empowerment and cash flow. And they don't like it.

  • "The Hot Zone" and the mythos of Ebola

    DouglasKC to Jim Noble
    Skin to skin contact with a symptomatic patient? Deadly. Doorknobs? Does not seem likely, based on real data from very good people.

    It's interesting but I've been tracking how Eboloa spreads since early summer. Every couple of days I go onto google and type "How does Ebola spread". Up until about a week ago the top results always said something like you can catch it from objects handled by sick patients.

    Now that's changed. In order to avoid panic the new czar has apparently clamped down on this. But it doesn't change reality.

    The scary fact is that the Eboloa virus is spread much like the common cold:

    How is the common cold transmitted?

    The common cold is spread either by direct contact with infected secretions from contaminated surfaces or by inhaling the airborne virus after individuals sneeze or cough. Person-to-person transmission often occurs when an individual who has a cold blows or touches their nose and then touches someone or something else. A healthy individual who then makes direct contact with these secretions can subsequently become infected, often after their contaminated hands make contact with their own eyes, nose, or mouth. A cold virus can live on objects such as pens, books, telephones, computer keyboards, and coffee cups for several hours and can thus be acquired from contact with these objects.

    Now sneezing or coughing aren't (they say) symptoms of ebola. But ebola victims still sneeze. And they still cough. And they touch things. A bowling ball being handled by sweaty man WITH ebola isn't something i would be touching any time soon.

    5) Do not believe people who say Ebola spreads on bowling balls. The negative data for environmental surfaces is very strong.

    From this thread which links to a photojournalist's actual, real world, experience with Ebola in Liberia. From that article:

    In Liberia today, it's the things you can't see that are most lethal. One twist of an infected door knob or an accidental brush past a stranger can be your death sentence."

  • MSF Protocols for Staff Returning from Ebola-Affected Countries

    10/25/2014 7:57:06 AM PDT · 13 of 14
    DouglasKC to EBH
    As long as a returned staff member does not experience any symptoms, normal life can proceed. Family, friends, and neighbors can be assured that a returned staff person who does not present symptoms is not contagious and does not put them at risk. Self-quarantine is neither warranted nor recommended when a person is not displaying Ebola-like symptoms.

    This literally reeks of stupidity. The virus is IN THEIR BODY, GROWING AND ALIVE whether they show symptoms or not. Maybe they have a strong constitution. Maybe they don't feel sick. But they still have Ebola, a disease that kills more people than it spares.

    So basically their advice is "Don't bother being tested or quarantined for Ebola. If you get sick, why gee...then you MIGHT have Ebola...but golly feel free to do practically anything you want unless you feel sick".

    Very soft, very subjective and a perfect way to spread the disease.

    Then you are hearing the WRONG thing, It is NOT an airborne disease. That is a scientific fact.

    Only in the narrow sense that the virus doesn't float around on its own (maybe). But it definitely does float around in droplets of water vapor that comes from breath, sneezes and coughs. And like the flu virus it remains on surfaces and infectious for hours.

    It spreads JUST LIKE a cold:

    "How is the common cold transmitted?

    The common cold is spread either by direct contact with infected secretions from contaminated surfaces or by inhaling the airborne virus after individuals sneeze or cough. Person-to-person transmission often occurs when an individual who has a cold blows or touches their nose and then touches someone or something else. A healthy individual who then makes direct contact with these secretions can subsequently become infected, often after their contaminated hands make contact with their own eyes, nose, or mouth. A cold virus can live on objects such as pens, books, telephones, computer keyboards, and coffee cups for several hours and can thus be acquired from contact with these objects."

    It is dangerous and deadly, but more people will die of the flu this rear, by a HUGE margin (tens of thousands). Wanna quarantine people then quarantine people with the flu.

    The flu affects hundreds and hundreds of thousands and has a very low death rate. The odds greatly favor living over death. By comparison, if one picks up the ebola virus the odds are that they're going to die and that everyone else you infect will die too.

    If you think about it logically (something the gov't isnt good at) have to ask yourself: WHY? We have a long history of Ebola outbreaks and the largest outbreak prior to this one was 280 in 1975. All outbreaks combined are less than 1/2 of the current estimate...which is said to be only 25-50% of the real number. So...WHAT has changed? Why is it different?

    Because the previous "bad" outbreaks occurred in small, out of the way villages in Africa where travel was infrequent. It was almost self-quarantine or burned through the community and died off before it could spread outside of the community.

    What's different is that it has entered into urban areas with large populations with lots of travel. There is nothing to stop it.

    I don't think people quite understand this yet. There is NOTHING that is, or can stop, Ebola. There is no cure and it is a deadly, very contagious disease that acts very quickly.

    The ONLY thing that has worked in the past is containment. And that has only worked because it occurred in small, remote villages in the wilds of Africa where travel was limited.

    The only way to avoid it in the United States is to basically close the borders. Nobody in until a mandatory 21 days in isolation. Even then it's almost certain that those who work in such centers will get the disease.

    In other words, barring a miracle or a mutation, Ebola will march around the world.
