Thank You Obama for all you did but Quarantines are a Psychological Necessity

Before I criticize you Mr. Obama, I want to thank you for hugging Nina Pham, the most you accomplished so far besides sending in military personal to escort patients to hospitals.

However a short quarantine is rest not punishment.

Being worried about getting too close to a friend, and acquaintances suspicious of them, is far more of a hassle even traumatic then needing to stay in a cheep airport center or near by hotel for two weeks. If it was free, acquaintances would want one to rest there even if they had visited South Africa or Spain.

If someone needs to attend a funeral or important meeting cameras or escorts should be available to know instantly if anyone else needs to worry.

Another thing that is urgent is that Ebola survivors who go back and work without masks and gloves the UN is hiring Ebola survivors this way to work with sick kids

Most urgent is the need for fantastic like Superman and Super Woman cartoons where survivors are armed with super blood even a long kiss would save the victim of the Ebola blob invading from outer space,

I have a fantasy of being Nina Pham when she was being hugged by the President that may stop Ebola-mania is its tracks hopefully before the end of this election cycle,

RSN doesn’t accept adds if it goes out of business google,

I Dream of Being an Ebola Celebrity, sharing my dream counters the panic

Nationalization of Politics Continues: South Dakota Senate Looking Safe for the GOP



I'm retired in Philadelphia. Non religious but there seems to be a life force that I see as more personal than is usually expressed.

I was raised a Quaker (common with Christian Jewish intermarriage back them) But my father was a total pacifist and during World War II, at the time that being so was difficult.

Upbringing included father trying not to get physical, yet still defend us kids from my harsh stepmother until she got her citizenship papers, after which they could get divorced. Been involved in peace issues since the anti-fallout shelter protests through Vietnam and Iraq.

I wrote "Greedy Little Squirrels and Lifeboat ethics,” 1977, when the Moonies were coming to America and got heavily harassed by them. I also think bin Laden is extremely dangerous like the leader of a barroom brawl, who has been manipulating this country into using the US to get Muslims angry enough to join his suicidal permanent war group. Before 9/11 young Muslims rebelled by wearing by covering their hair a little less than expected and at least winking at each other, now he changed rebellion into being militancy. The Northern Alliance would have been legitimately in charge long ago had he not baited the US into entering Afghanistan.

Obama is making a mistake in my mind with how to stop bin Laden’s dream of permanent war in a divided world but less of a mistake than most anyone else would. If due to currency collapses from out ever more expensive weapons the US stops fighting al Qaeda, then other counties will. If it ends up being Iran, the Sunni Shiite divide will be enormous. Al Qaeda is already convinced that the atheist China is a serious enemy, and the Russians have fought for brutally and inadvertently convinced far more Muslims than the US did that they considered Islam itself to be the enemy.

I never stopped supporting Jimmy Carter when everyone turned on him and I support Obama as well, but think he will have to use a lot more persuasion and less force if they aren’t going to succeed at bankrupting us. However Obama has tried less force and al Qaeda has started to respond in kind trying to limit the victim’s in the way of their primary attacks.
