I'm less worried about Ebola down in Texas than I am about
Denver-area children stricken by partial paralysis puzzle neurologists here in Colorado...
There 10 of these kids in the Hospital right now and doctors still don't know they why's and what-for's ... this comes on top of the 900+ sick kinds we had with that enterovirus 68 deal...

this guy left africa without symptoms. and now he is positive
which to me means he was contagious from the moment he left africa.
There are ALOT of people in some form of contact from there to dallas.
And after the 2006 study stating it IS possible to be airborn... ALOT of potential scenarios are under the surface here.
No - you are not contagious unless you are symptomatic. No symptoms.. not contagious. He didn't show symptoms until 4 days after arrival in the U.S. So even the "Loose for a week!" headline isn't true. He was "loose" for maybe 2 and a half days while in a contagious stage.
My only real worry is the urgent care clinic where he sat.. contagious.. before seen and released with antibiotics.

I have been a long time lurker since about 2006, I have not had much to bring to the table until now and feel responsible to do so. The people on this site alerted me on the coming collapse in 2006 and I saved enough money from 2006 to 2008 to make it through the hard part of my layoff in 2008 to 2009. So as a repayment to all of you I will give you information I heard as a government employee yesterday before I heard about the patient in Texas.
Fact: An african-american (actually from africa) co-worker's wife died "suddenly" from "something that could happen to any of us" this was in a government e-mail.
Rumor yesterday from reliable coworker: The coworkers wife returned from visiting family in africa and died from ebola in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I have no confirmation yet if it was actually ebola or where she actually died, as the federal laws prohibit this information from being released.
It makes me sick that the government puts the economy before the health and welfare of the people. They say they can handle this and still play it down, this all makes me very nervous...time hide out soon? Food storage and weapons handy folks. Just be prepared as even FEMA states on their website.

Whether there are people at the helm or recent events are totally random this is clearly the end game. Everyone should be prepping. I've always been the first to laugh at preppers since we've never had any credible threats to society but in the last year or two the warning signs are just piling up. Every nutjob who's been preparing for apocalypse for years is seeming smarter and smarter every day that goes by.
