Here Comes Ebola?

CDC Chief: Ebola’s Spread to the United States ‘Inevitable’

Thursday at the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health hearing titled, “Combating the Ebola Threat,” the head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Tom Frieden said “We are all connected and inevitably there will be travelers, American citizens” who will travel in the infected African countries and come “here with symptoms.”

He added, “It is certainly possible that we could have ill people in the US who develop Ebola after having been exposed elsewhere.”

Actually, anybody with a reasonably functional brain understands this.

The only question is where it comes, and how. Parts of America are still third world, so let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope it doesn’t get established there.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
