So far, 763 people have been infected with the virus - and 468 of these have died.

First secure our borders. Not a cent for anyone until this is done.

"So far, 763 people have been infected with the virus - and 468 of these have died."

Obama and his Democrats are itching to invite them to come to the USA.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

My HS math tells me this is approx. a 62% kill rate, thus far. Not good. We should be closing our borders, not opening them wider and providing transportation for illegals.

Note to Self:
  1. Don't talk to people from Africa on the Internet, especially if they are beautiful white models who have fallen in love with me and want to marry me, if I will just send them funds so they can leave Africa.
  2. Don't send bank information to people from Africa who just want a safe place to transfer millions of dollars and want to split it with me afterwards.
  3. Don't visit Africa, not even with a military escort and every vaccination known to man.
  4. Don't get in the vacinity of anyone who has been treating ebola or MERS patients in the last two months.

Best not to fly to or from these places for the time being.

If the airports are still open in these countries, THEY'RE NOT DOING IT RIGHT!!!

PING!

Obviously you didn't have Common Core. It's really just a "smidgen".
