War on Ebola and the Flu

Posted by madjillmom on September 16, 2014

So now, Pres. Obama is going to send 3000 “boots on the ground” to fight the scourge of Ebola in Africa. There have been over 4000 cases reported and at least 2500 deaths. I looked at the CDC website to ascertain the number of deaths due to seasonal flu in the US and if I am reading the chart right, the average number of deaths due to flu is annually 6000.

ISIL has killed way more people than Ebola this year and there are only 1500 “advisors”  on the ground (sans boots) working on a war against ISIL, or whatever term the Obama administration feels serves it political end is using today.

On another War front, the War on Poverty has consumed over $20 trillion in our tax dollars without any appreciable change in the rate of poverty.

Question: If the incubation period on Ebola can be 21 days, how can we catch it on airlines or at ports here. An Ebola patient sneezes in a taxi or vomits there. The taxi driver picks up another passenger soon after and takes him to the airport. The passenger boards a plane for America and goes to Chicago or Dallas.

I have been told that one of our kids will be deploying in December or January. I think I would rather him advise on eradicating ISIL rather than Ebola.

Once again, Obama is late to the party on Ebola and ISIL.
