6 grunde til at panikke over ebola

As a rule, one should not panic at whatever crisis has momentarily fixed the attention of cable news producers.

But the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, which has migrated to both Europe and America, may be the exception that proves the rule. There are at least six reasons that a controlled, informed panic might be in order.

Skal vi lukke grænserne?

As the Ebola crisis surges to the top issue on the minds of Americans, a new poll finds that 82 percent of those following the issue closely want to quarantine anybody who has recently traveled to the virus-stricken nations.

The Economist/YouGov poll found that women are more concerned than men and would refuse entry to anybody from those nations. Just 16 percent would allow them into the nation.

The poll is the latest proof that the nation is in an Ebola frenzy that believes Washington and President Obama have fallen down on their job of protecting Americans. For the first time in two months of polling on the issue, more Americans disapprove of the president’s handling of the issue than approve.

But the headline is support for banning or quarantining those who have been in the Ebola countries. That is a far more hardline view than limiting or ending flights from the countries, of which there are few.

— 72 percent of all polled believe “we should quarantine people who have recently been in any of the countries in western Africa where there is a major Ebola outbreak.”

— 82 percent of those following the issue very closely want a quarantine

— 56 percent said the federal government should bar those who have “recently” been in Ebola nations from entering the U.S. It rises to 66 percent for those following the issue closely.

Imens øger HusseinObama importen af potentielle smittebærere.

According to the Washington Post, the number of visas issued to Liberians by the United States has spiked, with about 3,500 visitor visas granted to Liberians last year, and another 10,000 granted to people from Guinea and Sierra Leone during that same time period. The Post also reported that Liberians also have a very high rate of “visa overstays.”

Og vi skal bruge billioner af kroner på imaginære trusler, men hvor meget bliver der brugt på en særdeles realistisk fare, hvor der hverken findes vaccine eller medicinsk behandling.

EU’s indvandringskommisær: Historisk fejltagelse at vi ikke lukkede flere arabere ind i EU

Cecilia Malmströms udtalelse er blevet fjernet fra nettet, men Fria Tider gemte en kopi.

Vi synes den børes spredes så meget som muligt.

Læs talen på det første link – hun stræber efter fælles EU-asyl politik allerede i år (2012).

Uriasposten: Malmström mener, at medlemslandene med den nye aftale har for stor magt over egne grænser.

Kulturberigelse: Hvorfor finder man sig i det?

De har prøvet meget i daginstitutionen Midgård, der ligger lige op af ghettoen Mjølnerparken på Nørrebro.

Men aldrig det her.

Pædagoger og forældre er ‘utrygge’, ‘taler’ og ‘tænker’! Hvorfor f….. er der ikke nogen, der gør noget?

Jeg kommer til at tænke på en lignende historie fra Oslo. Her tog en voksen en af de uvorne unger i armen og fulgte ham hjem. Da forældrene til banditten lukkede døren op, blev DE truet med høvl – det hjalp!
