The bummer is refusing to curb travel to and from the African hot zones.  We have to apply massive pressure on Congress and the bummer man to cut travel to the Contagion Zones in Africa, and to curb landing rights of carriers coming inbound from the C zones to the US.  The goddamn border is death alley for the people of the United States.  We have to secure the border and need to curb any further immigration, legal or otherwise coming into the US through Meso America and or Mexico.  Immigrants must be medically inspected and quarantined.

We have four viruses now in the US that can be disabling or lethal.  There are attendant fatalities associated with EV68.  These infectious agents appeared almost simultaneously.

1.  EV68 (lethal, fatalities)–39 States and Canada
2.  Ebola (lethal)– Texas
3.  Chikunguya (more disabling than lethal) — Florida
4.  Infectious TB (lethal with HIV) Texas
Mexico’s health care professionals are dealing with a spate of Cholera outbreaks, which can be lethal within hours.  Mexico is at risk from pandemics just as much as we are.

The media appear to be trying hard to create a national hysteria regarding Ebola.  There have been a rash of sensational stories about its gruesome effects and potential to pose as an extinction threat to mankind.  Why?  Money for one.  Fear and bang bang drive stories.  The second rationale is that they are owned by the cabal and the cabal have vested interests in creating and sustaining panic.  Panic is a political warfare weapon.  What causes panic…Yellow journalists paid to instigate hysteria and agents provocateurs.

Excuse me, but I am not seeing what I would call panic sweeping the land in orgies of mindless destruction caused by bat shit crazed individuals.  Nope.  Concern, yes.  Blind panic?  No. Let’s work to keep it that way.

My main concern rests with the protection of our health care professionals.  They are priceless national assets.  Military personnel know that medics are a vital factor in sustaining the morale of soldiers.  Yet, there does not appear to be any serious concern for their welfare among care facilities.  Nurses have repeatedly cited that care facilities cannot cope with something like Ebola.  They articulate the lack of protective gear, training and intelligence.  IMO, higher management will likely in the face of a true pandemic expend them out as disposable assets.

Health care workers thus, face some serious problems and issues.  Are unions and professional organizations willing to back up their constituents?  Are the people willing to protect their health care workers?  Are medics willing to consider quitting to put social distance between them and life-threatening diseases?  What happens to us if they elect to do so?

There is a final fly in the ointment.  Terrorists, such as ISIS and groups affiliated with Al Qaeda have threatened health care personnel and first responders.  Terrorists shot up a hospital in India and recently blew up a hospital in Yemen.  They have threatened to kill American health care workers inside the United States.

What is our government at the state and federal level doing to address these issues?  It appears to be damn little and wishing the problem to go away or descending on some one else.

Finally, the jackasses inside the CDC are issuing a stream of platitudes that everything is under control and we have nothing to worry about.

I don’t know about you, but I am quite concerned.
