EBOLA IN THE USA? Here it is. Most of the major conservative talk show hosts have been demanding that we shut our borders to Ebola countries until they get control of the epidemic.

I am all for our military assisting with the epidemic in foreign countries. It is good practice for the possibility of bio warfare. However, our leaders are out of their mind in leaving our borders open.

I am not particularly worried about the disease spreading rapidly, however if it were to go airborne millions could lose their lives. This disease is not to be messed with. Half who get it die a gruesome death.

Is there a harmonic chorus between the left and right on this subject? Are you on the left waiting to see what Obama says until you make up your minds?

You are really fixated on "closing the borders". Does this mean that no one comes into the country period?

No, I've never said that, but even our forefathers knew to quarantine new arrivals at Ellis Island. At this point anyone can come here and stay without fear of being removed.

This guy just showed up and is not a citizen. He should not have been allowed into our country without a blood test or quarantine.

Bard, if you are going to talk about Ebola and the threat that it represents, you should get your facts straight. Ebola is not an airborne threat. The risk of transmission is through contact with bodily fluids. Although Ebola is a terrible and potentially deadly virus, in a first world country like the US, it does not represent the same kind of threat as what we've witnessed in Africa.

It's interesting that a person like you that wants the government and regulations out of our lives is looking to the government for protection. You might want to think more about how the EPA and the Department of Health and Human Services, and the regulations that they issue and enforce, focuses on ensuring a clean and healthy environment.
