Ebola...a word that strikes fear in the hearts of Americans yet it is
a word that is being overblown by the media. Five cases here
in our country does NOT a pandemic make, and remember NONE of the cases
were contracted here in the U.S. The doctor and nurse who contracted the virus while
in Africa were treating active Ebola patients, were transported home for
treatment, and both survived and infected NO one. Now an American
photographer is back home in Nebraska under medical supervision in
isolation. All three came home in containment... isolated and in
quarantine...and posed NO danger to others. However, the other two cases
are a different story all together as both persons knew they had the disease before they came
to our shores...before they came to our shores knowing that they could
And while there have been dozens of 'suspected' Ebola cases around
the U.S. in the past few weeks, all except the two mentioned above have
turned out to be false alarms. False alarms because Ebola...while NOT
easy to diagnose in its early stages because its initial symptoms like
fever and headache can be symptoms of just about anything from simple
flu to advanced malaria...is something the media loves to report on
ad-nauseum...report on for the all-important ratings as they thrive on
playing to the public's fears...and of course report on to deflect attention away
from Obama's failed polices as the mid-terms approach. And while it's
important to know that there are some being isolated who could possibly
have but most likely NOT have Ebola, erring on the side of caution to
protect the population is wise as it takes a full day or more to get
test results back from the CDC to confirm whether a person actually has
Ebola or NOT.
So, the media either needs to tell the truth about Ebola or shut up
as they are leading people to believe things about Ebola that simply are
Case in point...filling the public venues with stories of Ebola
possibly mutating and becoming airborne is scare tactics at best and
only serves to spread misinformation as the fact remains that Ebola is
spread only through direct contact with the bodily fluids...vomit,
semen, sweat, or blood...of someone who is symptomatic and 'shedding'
the virus...meaning you would need to get their bodily fluids into a cut
on your body or into your mouth, nose, or eyes. Ebola is NOT...I repeat
NOT...airborne as it would first have to mutate in nature before it
could do so, and very rarely do viruses completely change the way
they're transmitted. And there is NO scientific proof whatsoever that
the virus has mutated in any way nor do the experts expect it to do so
for Ebola is what's scientifically known as a 'whimpy' virus as well as
having a low reproductive rate (meaning the amount of people one sick
individual is capable of infecting).
Being a 'whimpy virus' means the Ebola virus does NOT
live long outside its host organism...just for a few hours on surfaces
(like doorknobs, counters, and such) because oxygen in the air kills the
virus...and for a day or two at most in blood or vomit that is NOT
cleaned up right away. And if it is immediately cleaned up water itself
will kill the virus as does chlorine bleach like Clorox or even Lysol
spray. So there is little risk of contracting Ebola in ways besides
coming in direct contact by the means mentioned above. And remember,
half who contract Ebola survive as do the family members of those
infected as Ebola is NOT that easy to catch NO matter the media scare
tactics to the contrary.
Now knowing all this it becomes quite easy to prevent an Ebola
epidemic from ever reaching our shores...simply...NO one from the
countries currently affected should be allowed entry into our
country...period. That is NOT until this current epidemic burns itself
out as has previous epidemics of Ebola over the years. Remember, viruses
wax and wane as conditions feed it, and the conditions in West Africa
are ripe for the virus to thrive. Ebola is a disease...to put it
bluntly...of filth and unsanitary conditions and the countries it
currently thrives in are some of the dirtiest most unsanitary countries
on Earth. Some in these countries have NEVER taken a bath or shower in
clean water or even brushed their teeth let alone know what toilet paper
is. Their concept of cleanliness is diametrically opposite of ours and
this mindset along with unsanitary practices allows Ebola...and other
nasties...a constant replenishable supply of people to infect. When
health care workers or their respective country's governments clean
things up a bit Ebola wanes only to return as old unsanitary habits
And I do NOT want to hear that my above remarks are racist in nature
because those infected are for the most part African blacks for Ebola
has NOTHING to do with race but everything to do with how people in that
part of the world live. Ebola does NOT thrive or run rampant in
Europe because of
Europe's high level of sanitary conditions and personal cleanliness
both of which are NOT conducive for the virus' survival. The same goes for the U.S. and
other western countries. And the old saying, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness
" surely rings true in the case of Ebola.
Now none of this means that we should become lackadaisical in our
attitude towards Ebola...we shouldn't as it does have a high mortality
rate, and while there is experimental treatments to combat the disease,
for the most part right now palliative care is the only option to
surviving Ebola. So, the only way to stay completely safe from Ebola is
NOT to let Ebola come here...and that means NO air travel in and out of
the countries affected and NOT letting residents of those countries come
here...NOT for any reason whatsoever. And isn't it more than a bit odd that just a few years ago
there were strict quarantine rules and regulations regarding Ebola and other deadly diseases, but that the Obama administration relaxed or altogether did away with them in 2010.
Again, as in the past, stealth jihad from the muslim in the White House comes to mind.
And so with Ebola having an incubation period of up to 21 days you
NEVER know who from those countries might be harboring the virus and who
is NOT. Case in point...a nurse in Barcelona, Spain, has now contracted
Ebola after taking care of two priests...one who died...that were
infected while in Africa and who came back to Spain and then got sick
and infected her.
Realizing the danger because of the long incubation period both Air France and British Airways have temporarily suspended
flights into West Africa. Also, many African nations have canceled
flights and closed their borders to those from infected countries. And
while these nations are acting proactively to protect the 'health,
safety, and welfare' of their citizens, the Obama administration says it
will NOT impose travel restrictions against those countries infected
with Ebola but will add undisclosed "measures"
to screen passengers arriving in the U.S. from overseas in an effort to contain the virus and prevent it from entering our country.
Feckless and ineffective measures put in place too late for the only
way to prevent Ebola from ever gaining a foothold here is to temporarily
stop all flights in and out of West Africa...period. And that means
working with European nations to ensure that persons coming into their
countries from the infected areas do NOT take connecting flights into
ours. And this suspension of all flights must be done NO matter that
Obama has said that he won't shut down flights from affected countries.
Saying this would be "counterproductive"
and would severely
restrict aid flights into those countries, Obama is again spewing lies as
medical supplies could be dropped into the areas needing them...this time
with workable parachutes unlike the aid packages he dropped for the Ysidi
stuck on a mountain in Iraq.
And while Obama thinks 'screenings' will be successful in stopping
Ebola he forgets or looks away to the fact that people will try to
fool...and some will succeed in fooling...the screeners by loading up on
ibuprofen or aspirin to lower their temperature to make it appear as
though they are uninfected when in fact they are.
So like all Obama's other failed policies this "measure"
will fail, and again it will be Americans on American soil who will die
as his so-wanted 'culling of the herd' continues on..continues on as in
can you say enterovirus...the little nasty that came in through our unsecured southern border... now that is something we do need to worry
