With each passing day, watching the Ebola scenario unfold is like watching a bad movie drama. There has been a comedy of errors playing out daily, accompanied by the mass scrambling of officials who are supposed to be working hard to protect us. On parade is the daily who’s who in the land of the clueless. One of the main criticisms of the current education model is the loss of teaching critical thinking. The Ebola scandal has highlighted this like never before.
First, we bringing a doctor and a healthcare worker to the United States with a disease that has NEVER been on the United States soil previously. I know this is a touchy subject with many. Where is your humanity people ask? Yet these are the same people who insist that all get vaccinated for the greater good. Is there a greater good in protecting the United States from a disease that could wipe out (and is in Africa) thousands of people if an outbreak occurs?
Dr Frieden, from the CDC, is another clueless double talking babbler. This man’s previous claim to fame was working with the NYC Mayor to ban public smoking and eliminating transfats in the restaurants. Now he is the Director of the CDC. His actions have dire consequences for our nation. You can give – But can’t get - Ebola on a bus- reports Frieden. He was quick to throw the nurses under the bus when the first nurse, Nina Pham, was diagnosed with Ebola after caring for Thomas Duncan. The truth of the matter was that the hospital and the workers were not prepared. They did not have the equipment to do what they needed to do to keep everyone safe. There are only FOUR hospitals in all of the United States that have the ability to deal with a level 4 containment situation. The nurses at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas are now fighting back saying that it is the fault of the hospital that they were exposed not a breech in protocol.
Wednesday, October 15th, revealed that another nurse named Amber Vincent had traveled from Dallas to Cleveland on Frontier Airlines. She left Dallas on October 10th and returned on October 13th after reporting that she had contacted the CDC multiple times about her 99.5 degree fever. This is were it gets really out of control. All I could think when I heard this was “Are you kidding me? She is a healthcare worker who just completed an assignment with Thomas Duncan – WHO DIED!!” She should know the risks. Yet her selfishness to get to a bridal shopping trip for her wedding has exposed hundreds of people to this wicked virus. I have had people defending her by saying that she contacted the CDC and they gave her the all clear to get on the plane. Again I say “Are you kidding me?” She is a trained professional that should know better. She should have waited one more day to see how her fever played out. But instead she did not think for herself and allowed someone looking at a temperature chart to determine that she should be OK to travel. Where is the logic here? …..Missing…..
The American people are beginning to panic. Almost every other feed on my Facebook page is about Ebola. Supplies of masks, booties, and rubber gloves are disappearing quickly. Prices are increasing as individuals try to capitalize on the fear of contracting this disease. Then, just when you thought it couldn’t get worse. It just did. The White House announces that President Obama has just appointed Ron Klain as the “Ebola Czar”. So what experience does he have that would make him a good candidate for this position. It wasn’t his medical experience because this man is not a medical professional but someone that the White House describes as “someone that can get things implemented”. Anyone hear “community organizing”? Here’s a brief work history: His is currently the president at Case Holdings and general counsel for Revolution, LLC companies. He is a graduate of Harvard Law School. He has served as the Chief of Staff under VP Joe Biden and former VP Al Gore. As Biden’s chief of staff, Klain played a vital role in implementing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and was the individual who signed off on the $535 million loan guarantee to the now debunked solar panel maker Solyndra. Prior to working with Joe Biden, Ron Klain was a well-connected Washington lobbyist. According to Senate lobbying disclosure records, Klain’s clients included Fannie Mae, U.S. Airways, Time Warner, CIGNA, and Imclone. But the most important part of his history that should concern us is that he was the key legal counsel for Al Gore in the 2000 election. He was hired to try to figure out how to twist and bend the constitution to get Al Gore into office. I have a feeling that type of experience may be beneficial before this is all over. But hey, there’s nothing to see here folks. Our community organizer has it all under control. We don’t need a medical person to help control the most dangerous virus to ever come to the United States do we? But they have a plan for us. What that is we do not know and sadly as Americans it appears that we have been made pawns in a very deadly game.
It’s time for all of us to reconnect with real people. Not just on Facebook but people in our community. To find a good church, return to one you used to go to or get more involved where you are. Do your research now and start to build up your immune system with food and supplements. Not everyone who is exposed gets the virus. What is the difference? I believe it is a strong immune system. We are going to need to work as a community for what may come. Now’s the time. Don’t wait.
To your health!
