More Backpedalling

The Centers for Disease Control and Not-So-Much Prevention on Wednesday announced that all travelers arriving in the U.S. from the three Ebola-stricken African countries will be subject to a 21-day monitoring program.
The expansive new rules apply to anyone returning from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea -- not just those who hold passports from those nations. This would include American journalists, health care workers and travelers.
Returning travelers will have to give authorities an address, two phone numbers and two email addresses, as well as the address and contact of a personal contact. They will get kits and be required to take their temperatures once per day and report to public health authorities, for 21 days. 
The program will start Monday in six states: New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and Georgia.
So if you live in the other 44 states, or for anyone who comes here before next Monday, well, too bad, bitches.
But there's still more!

The Centers for Disease Control and Not-So-Much Prevention on Wednesday announced new measures to monitor for Ebola anyone entering the United States from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea for a 21-day period. Under the measures starting Monday, travelers from the three West African countries will be expected to check in with health officials every day and report their temperatures and any Ebola symptoms through the 21-day period, the CDC said.

Because that plan has worked so well when we ask illegal aliens to come back for their deportation hearings in six months.

In other news, the CDC has said that it would also like world peace, and a pony.

I'm betting one more active Ebola case here, and the gate slams down for good, and full isolation quarantines go into effect before anyone is allowed to enter the U.S.
Just like 20-30 other countries have figured out already, and like everyone used to do this here before we got all PC-stupid, endangering the public health and safety of the entire nation.

  1. PC Stupid indeed. Looks like we are inching closer to the total flight ban that we absolutely need.

    Not to fear. The US Government will always finally implement the solution it really needs but only after first trying an exhausting every other solution that any half way intelligent person would know is completely stupid.

    The right way, the wrong way, and the government way.
