The Ebola Blues

The Sunday Sermonette is simply this: Elections have consequences. Any prudent regime would have slapped a travel restriction on natives and travelers from countries where ebola is present. The US has not.

White House - President Obama underscored the need to remain calm today, even though Africans have traveled to the US, exposing hundreds to the virus that they brought with them - and those people contacted other people. That's how viruses spread. The president also stressed that under ObamaCare where if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor (period) and if you like your hospital you can keep your hospital (period) -- you can be treated effectively and your ebola infection can be cured (period).

Those Americans who voted for President Obama feel a measure of comfort in his words. Everyone else is barricaded in their homes with keep-out signs on the doors and windows. In order to reassure the public that there is nothing to fear, President Obama is currently golfing (on a ship near the South Pole).

Texas, the port of entry for Africans coming to America with the ebola virus is celebrating diversity by embracing cousins from across the water.
