Yeah, I guess pointing out the obvious is too much. Yours is feed the children type logic. In case you dont get that, like the OP that is beyond most knee jerk reactionaries that arent capable of rational thought or an individual thought process. ....This is like Feed the children logic in that: "Dont prosecute people for stealing funds because "feed the children" feeds children". As if giving a couple pennies from every dollar sent makes them somehow noble people.

Just like these doctors going for a month at most, a week or two or just some days makes them not liable for criminal negligence when they come home to carelessly spread AN EPIDEMIC. BECAUSE, they helped a few sick people....Sure they did. Sure. Because they left when they were no longer needed right..... That makes them just as noble as the people who stay and will probably die. Same thing right?

I am convinced we dont deserve to not get hit with this. People need to see for themselves apparently. They NEED to.

I agree with some of the above.

It is true that some of the largest philanthropists in the world are also some of the most evil.
They do this to try and stop the massive amount of karma that's eventually going to hit them and to try and hide their shadow deeds so everyone only sees how much they donated or built.
But it won't save them because it's all about the intent of said actions as well as the action it's self.

But if one only has a dollar to give and gives it then both their action as well as intent are good. If one is only capable of helping one sick person then by all means he should do. It shouldn't detour them just because that one won't change the world. It changed that one sick persons life and that's all that matters. One drop of water makes an ocean over time.

Hey I never said lets not help them. I am not blind to the fact that helping stop the spread at its source is proactive.

ALL I am saying is that these people stop acting SELFISHLY when they cut and run back to their posh lives and do so irresponsibly. I dont think that is unreasonable.

Acting like this is not an obvious issue isnt going to help the situation though. We need to freaking arrest these people if they wont isolate themselves and take the necessary precautions to stop the spread of an epidemic if they wont do so on their own.

What they supposedly set out to do doesnt excuse them from what they potentially did at home. EVEN if no one else gets sick, I dont appreciate them playing Russian roulette with other peoples lives.

Also, I will always question their motives since they left when they were most needed. Help, real help is needed now.
They are nothing like the ones who stay and are neck deep in death and danger and plan on staying until this is solved.

NOTHING like them.

Indeed help should be an effort undertaken with no monetary interest but an interest in the value of life.

I just thought I would add the following since now people have resorted to Obama information management type reasoning and attacks.

I have several people who are nurses in my family. In fact we have a tradition for woman in our family to be nurses or go into medicine. I am not insensitive to real sacrifice. Maybe my families background has something to do with it, but the people who go home early and ditch patients, who ignore moral responsibility are the first to brag about how they help people while screwing over everyone else who picks up their slack. They are also people who go into medicine for the social status or money.

You guys dont think that everyone else who went to Africa to help dont have families themselves or jobs that they could lose if they dont return now? You guys think that they didnt put their lives on hold for this?

What you are doing is like comparing an Mormon missionary who goes to Europe to see the world and to preach to Mother freaking Teresa who is by and far much different than some thrill seeker.

My mother would stay at work and do overtime for the need, not the money and only go home when the job was done. She died of cancer after dedicating her life to other sick people. She didnt even want to go see why she was sick when things started to be noticable. We are workaholics but more than that she lived to help sick people. She would sit with them if no one visited, talked, prayed and helped them in any way she could. The community she worked in in NYC still remembers her. Out of the sea of people...She was just some freaking nurse. THAT is commitment. These doctors who come and go like it was safari to see the world are just like the ones who would clock out early and leave their patients to who ever the hell had to deal with it. The ones who would leave hospitals in poor neighborhoods like the one my mother worked at to go work in nicer hospitals for more money and perks.

I dont give one god damned damn about any moral guilt trip you people try to peg on me for saying this. I am tired of seeing these people get praise for going into a lucrative and acclaimed business. Now they are getting people sick because of the same selfish crap and I wont hesitate to call them on it. OR you idiots for blindly defending them or doing your part of information management for your dear Mr. President of lies and BS.

Not one.

screw you BTW. Jerk.
You sound like an ass.

You don't give a GD about what other's think, or what's going on in the world? Fine. You opiniohn of things ONLY matters to you. I hope you find yourself in a very desperate situtation soon - like tonight maybe. And I hope that someone comes along to help - someone who's not like you - someone who give a crap. Have a nice miserable selfish lonely life, you apparent embodiment of all that is wrong with this world.

Thank you. Your sentiment is absolutely ignored and you inability to address my valid point is noted.

Hey, Note This. No one cares. I made my point - that you're wrong. Then you went off on some rant about your mom... So? You sound like a bitter old woman mad because some poepl find purpose in helping others. You lash out at what you can't understand. As I said, that's fine. no one really cares about what you think. No one really cares about what I think. Good people in this world care about what is right, what is needed. I know, I know. You just don't get it. Don't worry. You don't have to get it. Crawl into your home, dream about not helping people because some doctors have nice offices (?), feel comfortable that only you know the correct way to proceed. The rest of world will continue to tryb to help each other out. We won't miss you at all.....

How am I worng sir? You only argued my moral deficiencies. You havent addressed my point at all.

Now you are just trolling. Dont push it. There are rules bucko.

Your entire argument is sentimental crap. As if I even made an affront on the value of helping others.

You have done everything from political baiting by saying I am some Fox news drone, have outright insulted me out of the blue when you started your vitriol fueled attack on me personally and are completely full of crap and know NOTHING about what you are talking about.

You cant see anything beyond your narrow point of view, cant talk like an adult and expect consideration you dont offer.

Eat it. You like the taste of your own crap.

I just think is so adorable the way the OP is going into meltdown panic now he can see face to face just a little tiny fraction of what it means to be citizen of a third world country.

However, OP, before you start blaming the so called humanitarians and such, you need to remember the main reason there's even a need for these people to go risk their lives to some of the poorest places of the world is because countries such as yours have been actively keeping such places underdeveloped throughout history so you can profit on them, which means such countries now lack the infrastructure necessary to fight against such potential global catastrophes on their own.

But I guess it was all fine to you as long as they would keep all the dying and the poverty and the illnesses at the other side of the world, but now that you have a little taste of the constant fear these countries have to live under, you want to cast out those who are at least trying to do something to help them.

I guess there's a lesson to be learned here: don't let your government treat the rest of the world as crap as it might come to bite you on the ass one day.

And there it is.

Now my country is at fault? Sir /maam, These places have bad government the same way mine does. Historically , like since the dawn of time, they have been underdeveloped according to our standards. What they want isnt what we want. Respect their choice.

I seem to be getting allot of people who cant see this for what it is. They cant understand that going into an infected area where an epidemic is raging and then coming home without taking MANDATORY precautions like its all cool isnt something a prudent person does. OR something we should be expected to turn a blind eye to since we are talking about a highly infectious and mortal disease. Good deeds dont give you the right to play with other peoples lives.

You people have no idea who I am. You dont know me. You have knee jerk reactions to anyone not parroting what the herd is.

I am the first person to help others. I take pride in the acts of kindness I can do and that I look for. YET you dumb dumbs think I am some raging devil over here just because I ask that these people not infect others. 0.o

I have probably done more for the average person I meet than you people. I have probably done more for others in my short life than you ever will. Why? Because I live it. You only talk sh*it over the internet to self aggrandize yourselves and mentally masturbate your egos.

Its my fault third world countries exist? Please. Take that garbage elsewhere. What the hell does that have to do (even if it was true) with people not being irresponsible and spreading disease?

You guys cant make a logical argument against mine since I am not saying something that is absurd. You have to delve into judgmental sentimentalism to attack me personally. As far as what I am saying, which is the most important thing in this conversation, I am 100% correct and I wont hide that. You also cant prove me wrong, so there is

Now is the time to have caution.

Everyone treating this like hype and fear mongering is a retard. Major health organizations are urging caution, not politicians selling a war. Scientists, doctors, crisis managers and epidemiologists. They say this is going to get much worse, that by all accounts the virus is booming. 40% of all deaths and infections have happened recently. That means NOTHING is under control. Its spreading.

So while you play the hard asses with me over the internet, I KNOW you arent risking your own personal safety in reality. You are just acting tough and telling people to play with theirs.

Here is a question to all you sentimental retards.
When was the last time you went out of your way to help out someone you didint know and what did you do for them? Giving money doesnt count, even "evil" people do that. What do you do that makes you so justified to judge me?

I ask because I know where I stand with humanity. I doubt you do. I owe nothing. I pay in full. Your karma isnt probably as small as mine. Yet you typical leftist extremists get on my ass for telling people to do what the law and procedures ask. Sure, makes sense.

don't let your government treat the rest of the world as crap as it might come to bite you on the ass one day.

Lesson learned here. People are sheep for the right popular POLITICAL SENTIMENT. "dont let your government blah blah".
Yes, I MAKE my government and more importantly the governments of others do things.

What high horse crap. Like the US made the whole continent of Africa what it is in 200 years. You obviously dont own a book.

Do you even know what my argument is? Blaming humanitarians? Are you people really this dumb?

Oh, and reveling over the suffering of others that you "love" to see, even if "evil" Americans isnt noble. Its sadistic. Thats how I know you arent a noble sacrificing person in real life. You are a smug jerk like 90% of humanity.

The least they could do is put them in a military base in Africa for 21 days before flight. They have them there already.

Really how @#$% hard is that!

I totally agree with you. They should have a mandatory quarantine before coming home. These people have just been ridiculous getting on planes, riding subways and taxis, and going bowling right after leaving Ebola patients. It's just nuts and you would think the medical community would know better.
All this self-monitoring stuff is ignorant. What do they think, it's like filling out your own time card or something?

posted on Oct, 25 2014 @ 11:16 AM
You know, I am just wondering if these people are working endlessly around these ebola patients and then just go hang around all the local populations or what? Is that why they are so lax about this, because at the end of the day they just go home anyway?

Really, are you freaking serious? Our tax dollars go every day to help populations in third world countries. It's called wealth redistribution, and if you live in a socialist country you should darn well know what that means. The US is the single largest contributor to the UN which distributes wealth to these places.

The source and amounts of all U.S. funding to the myriad number of organizations affiliated with the United Nations are difficult to track accurately.

The U.S. has been the largest financial supporter of the U.N. since the organization’s founding in 1945.

$6.347 billion in FY 2009.[3] This is more than $1 billion more than total contributions as compiled by OMB for FY 2005

Other than the war in Iraq, I have no idea what you are talking about. Considering it is DeBeers who mines for diamonds in Africa, and that is not American, I question where you get your ideas from....some radical Marxist professor in college maybe?

Then there's the IMF which you must understand is an International globalist organization. They loan money to foreign and Third World Countries, but the US does not OWN it. In fact the former head of IMF was Dominique Strauss-Kahn , some socialist French guy

as DSK, is a French economist, lawyer, politician, and member of the French Socialist Party (PS). Strauss-Kahn became the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on 28 September 2007, with the backing of his country's president, Nicolas Sarkozy,

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an international organization that was initiated in 1944 at the Bretton Woods Conference and formally created in 1945 by 29 member countries. The IMF's stated goal was to assist in the reconstruction of the world's international payment system post–World War II. Countries contribute funds to a pool through a quota system from which countries with payment imbalances temporarily can borrow money and other resources

Then there's the World Bank. Again another Intl organization.

What was it the US is doing to all these third world nations, what sayeth your Marixst professor?

Now mind you, I am not advocating for the UN or the IMF. I despise this globalist world government stuff. But nevertheless, it exists and has membership of many countries.
If you want to single out the US, then let the burden of proof be on you.

Dude dont get sucked in.LOL

All these people sound like the typical rich kids who crap on others to feel good about themselves. They are probably rich entitled people who dont worry about Ebola because of the lengths it has to go to to even get at them...and they laugh at us in our filth. They dont get the fear in riding a subway with tons of people because you HAVE TO during a crisis like this. They think we take issue with these doctors because they have nice offices, as if we cared that they went to a nice school, worked hard and now enjoy the benefits of their hard work. They are classists. Typical leftist extremist with expensive "sentiments" that like most costly things, only rich people who didnt earn their parents money can enjoy.

He doesnt really think the US made Africa what it is. That is absurd by any standard. He needs to /wants to think that because he is probably living in his parents 3 story house in Hawaii and cant cope with not owning a damned thing he worked for himself so he skews and hates everything from his parents world.

People who never earned a thing themselves value their "feelings" as being more real than the reality of the common people.

We all applaud people who go to help others because most of us in the real world cant get by without helping people ourselves. They get upset about this because I am criticizing the posh tourist type who come and go like it was just another vacation. Thats why he is trolling about the people of the US deserving bad things. It hits close to home for him. Thats why he says he revels and "loves" to see us fret over this and thinks that we should be punished with a freaking epidemic like he said. If he lived in NYC with all his family around there hitting the bricks daily and in a real threat of getting infected because of irresponsibility, he would be livid, not smug.

No one in their right mind would be against people NOT spreading a F-ing disease with a high mortality rate from an epidemic stricken country. Not unless they were in some far removed place physically or socially that they didnt have to deal with it.

Dont even bother dude. This is all post and run garbage. No one really wants to have a productive exchange. Just insult to feel better about their own demons and ditch...

I doubt they even believe what they say.

Have a good one sir.
Hold it down.

Mr. Town Cryer.... you have not grasped the concept that the US has never had Ebola on our shores till some guy brought it over from somewhere else, and our CDC brought some doctor home for treatment. (I am not saying the CDC doesn't have any of these microbes in storage someplace but we've never had sick patients here) We do expect highly trained health professionals to know what they are doing.
We just don't understand that if these MDs who are over there(the Doctors w/o Borders doc in NY specifically) come back to a major city like NY and ride the freakin subway because the nutbags at the CDC are telling everyone you cannot get it from a subway and yet now we are supposedly tracking down all the people who rode subways or were at the bowling alley....why are we doing this if you cannot get it from casual contact on a subway? Is because they are probably lying or just don't know enough about the disease. No there is something wrong going on here.
So please save the self-righteous rant. Like the OP said, even evil people give money to others. Georgy Schwartz is one of them. I once told a co-worker that he stole money from the Jews during WWII and when interviewed he said he had not one bit of remorse. As of today he has ruined more than one countries' currency. And then when the person did a Google search on Soros, he came back to me and said, oh he gives to all these people. Well Soros is a hero in the Progressive world, but one must look beyond the surface to see what is really happening.
How about another example of someone heralded by Progressives. Bill Gates. Now the top richest person in the world, believes in using vaccines to control population. Also believes that the government should be tracking children cradle to grave and storing their data in some monstrous new data center in Utah. Do you think that because he saves some lives in people in Third World countries with vaccines that he does not have a personal motive to make money off this monstrous Common Core thing he is pushing? Yes he does and he will.

Yah guy they just need to be responsible and not go around on subways, in cabs, bowling etc. just like it's a normal day. That's what we are saying. Something is really wrong here. With all the money the US spends on UN programs, why can't we fly these people back to a special decon place where they will be fed until their 21 days is up. Of course, then all the people who work for that facility would also have to be on some watch list.....
unfortunately for me, I live in a State with one of only 4 labs set up to deal with a level 4 infectious disease
