Ebola Crazy Talk

Coming from Fox News's expert on all things... O'Reilly Calls For The Arrest Of Nurse Fighting Ebola Quarantine

So far The CDC reports to date only 3 known cases in the United States resulting in only one death. The CDC "estimates that from the 1976-1977 season to the 2006-2007 flu season, flu-associated deaths ranged from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people".

If we're going to start locking up healthy people who don't have symptoms of Ebola shouldn't wacko Bill O' and the Fox newshounds have greater priorities?

When we start locking people up just because they've been around a sick person it's time to turn off the lights, lock the door and say goodbye to everything this nation is suppose to stand for.

Fox News obviously is on the forefront of advocating the taking away of constitutional freedoms they hypocritically claim to support.

To be sure, if someone becomes sick with Ebola we need to isolate them because we have no certain cure. However someone who is not sick poses no where near the threat as someone carrying the flu which can potentially kill 1,000's.

I do realize Fox News makes it's money by stirring people up causing fear, distrust and divisiveness, however on this they've crossed over the line. What they're doing is threatening the very freedoms of this nation. The minute we start sending sick people to isolation compounds we've begun a journey down a dark path that makes a mockery of all what our soldiers fought against in WWII and lost their lives.

If anyone is "sick" it's guys like Bill O'Reilly who want to lock up healthy people he perceives a threat. No I don't want to play the Hitler card, but it sure sounds a hellva' lot like it to me!
