On Ebola [UPDATED]

15 September 2014 @ 20:47

One does have to wonder if this most corrupted of corrupt governments, this Power And Control hungry group of would-be-Stalins whose motto is ‘Never let a good crisis go to waste’, is not keeping something from us regarding the spread and mutations of the Ebola Virus.

From The Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Drudge]:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warning hospitals and doctors that “now is the time to prepare,” has issued a six-page Ebola “checklist” to help healthcare workers quickly determine if patients are infected.

While the CDC does not believe that there are new cases of Ebola in the United States, the assumption in the checklist is that it is only a matter of time before the virus hits home.

After all, those is charge of our national government are carriers of a virulent virus, known as Leftism, so they might just have a warm spot on their dark and dastardly hearts for a fellow killer virus.

UPDATE at 2121…

Richard Fernandez makes an accurate, but chilling, point:

Recently president Obama warned that the ebola virus “could mutate” if it were not controlled.  But a moment’s thought would show that if the virus mutated each time it rolled the dice, the best way to prevent mutation is to shut down the casino. Stop the epidemic.  Because once you let a fire, epidemic or extremist ideology get past a certain size, it outruns what you thought your safe margin was.  Only early this year the president thought ISIS was a ‘jayvee’ team.  Now he’s looking for help to damp it down.  It’s hard not conclude that it got the jump on him.

However as Ian McCay of Virology Down Under notes, there is no evidence so far that it has become airborne. The real voodoo is in the nonlinear rate of spread. “It clearly doesn’t ‘need’ to be airborne to spread efficiently,” he writes.  …  It would be nice if the authorities could blame some extraordinary bad luck, like a freak mutation, for the current conflagration.  The  truth is probably more prosaic. They were faked-out by self-deception and complacency.

…Afters years of believing the Design Margin was endless, that the Stash had no limit, politicians can’t appreciate the fact there are certain classes of problems where it is absolutely lethal to kick the can down the road.

But are they perceptive enough?

    There is a chance that it has gone airborne at least to some degree. Most of the healthcare workers who’ve contracted the disease were supposedly following the proper protocols including face shields but not respirators.

    Tom Clancy wrote a fictional book about this scenario. Some elitist scientists decided to decimate the population, except for a select few, by experimenting with the Ebola virus until they were able to make it an airborne communicable disease. I don’t want to give away the plot, so I won’t go into details about how they were going to spread the disease.

    I believe the book was called ” Rainbow Six.”
