I can't believe what is happening. At first I wanted to think this flu was all just bad luck, but I am having second thoughts.
We need to watch and see who gets the flu and who doesn't.
Will KEY government people get it? Doubtful. Obama shook hands with who knows how many hundreds of people in Mexico just last week, and yet he is the picture of health? You know there were dozens of people in Obama's entourage who spent time in Mexico during a high contagion period, the very WORST time when it wasn't even known yet so no precautions were taken by any of them, and yet not a one of them is sick?????????

Your constitution was made to restrain the government, not the people!
So, stopping the spread of a potentially deadly virus constitutes restraining the people? Or are you advocating virus rights to freedom of infection?

then let the CDC or the DHHS take care of quarantine, not Homeland Security.
When you get Homeland Security involved ina clearly heath/medical related matter it opens up the flood gates for them to be involved in a many other matters they also have no right being involved in. There are agencies chartered to handle heath/medical related emergencies, DHS is not one of them.
The Department of Homeland Security works to anticipate, preempt, detect and deter threats to the homeland and to safeguard our peopleand their freedoms, critical infrastructure, property and the economy of our nation from acts of terrorism, natural disasters andother emergencies.

It would be extrememly irresponsible of a Government of a nation of this size not to have emergency plans in place.
When they start coming door to door forcing vaccinations, then I'll have an issue.

There isn't even going to be a vaccine for a long time.
What we NEED to focus on is making more Tamiflu and finding alternate treatments. This is weird. This is way weird and not the same way things are normally way weird on ATS.
I would be happy being quarantined in my house. But I mean, will people get fired for missing work? Without paychecks, some people may not be able to afford food.
