Obama Talks Ebola, Criticizes State Responses

This is getting confusing

|

The United States must continue to be a global leader in the fight against Ebola by supporting health workers traveling to West Africa, President Barack Obama said.

"America in the end is not defined by fear—that's not who we are," Obama said in a Tuesday address, critiquing some states' policies of forcing returning humanitarian workers into quarantine.

Emphasizing the importance of deploying the full capabilities of the American health care system to West African countries suffering from the disease, Obama said that the federal government is advocating for "new monitoring and movement guidance that is sensible, based in science, and tailored to the unique circumstances" of each health worker returning to the U.S.

  1. This jerk actually said in his speech that the reason soldiers are required to be quarantined while doctors and nurses aren’t is because the soldiers aren’t treating patients.

    Hey douchebag, the people treating the patients are the ones who are most at risk for contracting the virus! What you say makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, and so I conclude that you’re lying.

    1. “so I conclude that you’re lying.”

      Certainly suggested by history, but could be just blatant stupidity. That’s been in evidence also.
      Or could be both.
