Quarantine 2

“Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose or mouth of another person,” – CDC Poster

So, quietly stated by the CDC an admission that ebola can be spread by sneezing.  This news comes on the heels of the Obama Administration poking fun at Chris Christie for doing something actually responsible, which was the quarantine of Kaci Hickox after returning from an ebola hotspot.  The issue also had many progressives claiming that science should be the determining factor in quarantining people and not politics (politics, what politics?  Seems like the Progs are the ones being political about the safety of millions of Americans).  So, here it is, the science of the ebola virus.  Science says it can be spread through sneezing.  Science shows that this virus is worse than what we’re being told.  Yeah, it’s time to start quarantining people who come from those hotspots. It’s time to cautious and vigilant and not allow political correctness be the determining factor in the safety and well-being of Americans.  The Progressives can keep beating around the bush, but reality is rearing it’s head, a head that the extremes of both sides tend to hate, but right now it’s the enemy of the Progressives.

In other news, Kaci Hickox refueses to be quarantined at her home in Maine.  How lovely of her, the selfish ingrate without any regards to the safety of others.  She may not be infected, but still she’s a selfish piece of trash that didn’t take into consideration the health and well-being of people around her.  She only was concerned about herself and no one else.  So, thank you, Kaci Hickox, for exposing your lack of concern for human life despite being a “nurse”.  Any sane, compassionate person with any modicum of common sense would accept quarantine over potentially risking peoples health.

Quarantine

Kaci Hickox, who told CNN the quarantine was violating her rights, is being discharged, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie‘s office said Monday. – CNN

Seriously, the idea that being quarantine is violating her rights without any concerns of the right, for others who may come in contact with her if she did have ebola, to living ebola free just shows the level of selfishness on this womans part.  It takes a special kind of “person” to elevate the rights of the self above the rights and safety of others.  Grant it, I think the ebola hysteria is blown way over board by the rantings-hungry media, but a virus can mutate and become airborne at any given time. All it needs is a special protein shell and it’s longevity is increased.  I don’t believe, then, that it’s irrational to quarantine health workers returning from ebola stricken countries.  Its common sense.  Please, I beg you, if I had to go an ebola stricken country and come back to the States, please quarantine me because the horror of passing on such a horrible virus would eat at my soul daily if I happened to survive.

However, what’s worse is the Obama Administration pushing to have quarantine by states to be reversed.  Why would a leader be so reckless with his country?  Why jeopardize millions of Americans?  Clearly, he either has no care for the American people whatsoever or is trying to appease people via political correctness.  There’s no other sane and rational explanation for this type of action.  We can’t simply endanger even one person just because others might be offended or simply because of political posturing during an Election cycle.

When it comes down to the nitty gritty of all of this it’s really simply a conglomeration of media frenzy, politicians from both sides being vote hungry jackasses and a gullible public.  Yes, ebola isn’t as bad as the public figures it to be, but that doesn’t mean vigilance and proper infectious disease safety protocols should be sacrificed.  That is simply insane and irresponsible.  For the Obama Administration to be pushing for a reversal in quarantine procedures by states for ANY reason is treasonous because it lacks any concern for the health and safety of the American people.
