I’m really tired of writing about ebola. But for those including alleged libertarians who want to forcibly, involuntarily apprehend and incarcerate someone who is accused of having ebola, you really had better have actual scientific proof, such as blood tests which reveal the actual ebola virus, such tests of which should only be performed if symptoms such as vomiting and bleeding are occurring. A “fever” is not sufficient in my view. The nurse who had a slight fever but was exhibiting no other symptoms then had a more accurate temperature reading and was shown to not have a fever. Traveling by air has various effects on people. The stress of traveling and dealing with changes in climate etc. could have effects on someone including one’s body temperature.
While the subject is not ebola but fishing expeditions to find drunks, this Infowars article discusses unconstitutional mandatory roadside blood draws. Now, do those who support mandatory-quarantine/testing for ebola want to have checkpoints in which everybody’s blood must be drawn, without reason to suspect that specific individuals have ebola? (I think that panic and fear have been winning over reason and common sense. It is common sense to understand that government bureaucrats and their enforcers cannot be trusted with the power to seize property, money or bodily fluids from peaceful and presumably innocent people without suspicion and probable cause.)
Meanwhile, Patrice Lewis says that perceptions of ebola can be just as damaging as the virus itself.
And Brandon Smith explains why he will not submit to medical martial law.
Walter Williams says it would be better if Western nations didn’t send aid to Africa.
Robert Wenzel writes about the U.S. gunvernment testing ebola as a bio weapon. (Hey, U.S. bureaucrats: why the hell do you need to use “germs” to attack foreigners? Why don’t you just shoot them and bomb them? I guess being sadists, the bureaucrats like to cause people extra suffering and misery, so they will give “the enemy” ebola.)
And the New York Times writes an editorial on the dangers of forced quarantines. But because they are so entrenched and enmeshed with government, the
Slimes Times doesn’t mention that the real danger is the harm such policies will do to innocent and non-ebola-carrying people. By the way, if politicians and police forcibly throw someone into an “ebola quarantine facility,” regardless of whether they actually have ebola, and they don’t have ebola but then get it from someone else at the facility and then they die, do the families of these innocent victims of government bureaucrat-Nazis have the right to file murder charges against those who forced people’s loved ones to their deaths?
