LIBERTARIAN: Forced medical care

Ebola Virus Outbreak.

“The group was stoned and found hidden in the village’s septic tank,” according to the dispatch, which did not say how many people died in the incident. “The reason for the killings is unknown. It is likely the villagers murdered the group fearing they would be diagnosed with Ebola and removed to quarantine…”

Hugh Adds: How does a country effectively fight an epidemic among such a superstitious population? It’s a hard position. Do you violate a person’s God-ordained rights and force them to receive medical care or do you just wall the village off?

From this little L libertarian pov, they’d have to be “ostracized”.

The human society has to be able to “quarantine” and / “ostracize” if the species is to survive.

imho

GOVERNACIDE: State Department plans to bring foreign Ebola patients to U.S.

State Department plans to bring foreign Ebola patients to U.S.
By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times – Updated: 9:40 p.m.

*** begin quote ***

The State Department has quietly made plans to bring Ebola-infected doctors and medical aides to the U.S. for treatment, according to an internal department document that argued the only way to get other countries to send medical teams to West Africa is to promise that the U.S. will be the world’s medical backstop.

Some countries “are implicitly or explicitly waiting for medevac assurances” before they will agree to send their own medical teams to join U.S. and U.N. aid workers on the ground, the State Department argues in the undated four-page memo, which was reviewed by The Washington Times.

Are these politicians and bureaucrats just plain stupid?

TINFOILHAT: Ebola into the US — planned?

The Entry of Ebola into the US Has Hallmarks of a Planned Happening
By Paul Craig Roberts
October 23, 2014

*** begin quote ***

More information is available that suggests the the government had advance information that ebola was coming to the US and that the government expects a much larger outbreak of the disease in the US than it admits.

*** and ***

The U.S. government knew about the outbreak in advance, but didn’t warn the public

It’s now clear that the U.S. government has long known this outbreak was coming but did nothing to warn the public.

*** end quote ***

While it’s terrible to be so untrusting, but the Gooferment has earned our distrust.

The failure to close the commercial air lanes, properly alert the ERs, and the flat out lying about the status of protocols is at best incompetent and at worst criminal.

The politicians and bureaucrats showed us just how immoral, ineffective, and inefficient that Gooferment can be.

If evidence can be found, then maybe “We, The Sheeple” will awake?

RANT: ‘poor mans nuke’ … … ebola

Further fun with ebola
Posted on October 12, 2014

*** begin quote ***

I’m still waiting for some troubled loner to grab a diaper from the Sierra Leone isolation ward, mail it to his sleeper cell in Virginia, and start smearing it all over doorknobs on Capitol Hill. There has always been a saying that biological weapons were the ‘poor mans nuke’.

 *** end quote ***

I thought of this when I first heard of “ebola”.

Remember in the Middle Ages, castles under siege had the bodies of plague victims catapulted over the walls.

Same tactic, minus the catapult.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Ebola epidemic will spread by air travel?

http://www.offthegridnews.com/2014/10/11/4-reasons-ebola-cant-be-stopped/

 

*** begin quote ***

The United States and Canada are still allowing air travel from the nations of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia where the Ebola epidemic is centered.

The Ebola patient who died in Dallas, Thomas Eric Duncan, had flown from Liberia. About 150 people each day fly from those three countries to the US. South Africa and a host of other African countries have closed off flights from the three West African countries, but the United States and Canada have not.

The most likely way Ebola could spread on planes may not be from contact with passengers, but from waste on planes. Some airliners are now so filthy and unsanitary that cabin cleaners at New York’s LaGuardia Airport walked off the job, The New York Daily News reported. The cleaners are angry because of the danger of potential exposure to Ebola.

“I have to deal with vomit, feces and a lot of chemicals, without proper equipment,” cleaner Johanna Cruz told The Daily News. “They give us gloves, but they might as well be made of paper because they rip so easily.”

*** end quote ***

Sorry, but it’s just stupid to NOT shut down air travel.

And, it’s not unreasonable to quarantine travelers.

This poor soul flew while infected and did NOT show symptoms until after he was here.

Argh!

RANT: Ebolaphobia is perfect for Gooferment purposes

OPINION
Ebola outbreak: Why Obama is allowing Ebolaphobia to spread
By Dr. Keith Ablow
Published October 09, 2014
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

Adults admit to anxiety about whether the illness could strike many more people here, and children have confided to me that they are terrified of Ebola. And what is being said is only the obvious part of the psychological virus (call it “Ebolophobia”) that is spreading; I would venture that millions of people are already unconsciously spending mental energy to suppress their worries that the disease could infect them or those they love.

Part of the preventive health strategy to help contain this psychological virus should be a reliable flow of information and bold policy from the Obama administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But, already, their response lacks the necessary element of steady stewardship. And that’s because of President Obama’s continuing reticence to put America first.

Rahm’s rule: “Never let a good crisis go to waste!”

It distracts the Sheeple and makes them think they need the Gooferment to “protect” them.

Argh!

If I was “King” like BHO44, then:

* Travel ban;

* Fire up the CDC for a daily national announcement;

* Fire up the FDA for an fast track plan for drugs;

* Put DoD on the Southern Border problem;

* Nuke the whole Homeland Security organization; and

* Put Biden in charge of the “Ebola” effort.
