You do know that Ebola makes you bleed from every orifice and essentially hemorrhage and shit yourself to death within the course of a week or less? It's also highly contagious between humans and has even show the capacity for airborne transmission between lesser primates in a laboratory setting. And you think HIV is worse? People as ignorant as you need to Darwin yourselves out of our collective misery by catching Ebola to demonstrate how benign it is in comparison to HIV.
Seriously. I've heard some outstandingly ignorant things said by some amazingly ignorant people on this topic. You, however, have now been officially nominated as the dumbest person in the history of ever
. If you win this round you'll go on to compete against Anna Nicole Smith for the grand prize. Even dead, I still think she might be smarter than you. [/quote]
Actually Ebola is only dangerous to the individual... not the species. It burns itself out so quickly only a handful are ever impacted. Ultimately it kills faster than it can spread, killing a concentrated group of people. A village, 200-300 die in an outbreak. HIV/AIDS has only had one known outbreak, and it isn't over yet. HIV/AIDS is far more dangerous because the host has time to transfer it.
I know very well what Ebola does to the body. Clearly none of you were in the DC area when our outbreak happened. luckily only three people were infected, and none died. The Hot Zone. Read it.
Once again, I did not say it was right. I did not say it was reasonable. I said it was an attempt to protect the citizens. I never said anything about homosexuality. I never said anything about frequency of the chance of sexual partners. I only said the US government has a responsibility to its people to protect us. That doesn't always lead to the best, or most fair solution, or even one I agree with. I made the argument that this was an attempt at a way of protecting lives. It has unquestionably failed. It was unquestionably unfair to the victims of HIV/AIDS. But to the person at the CDC and Immigration Control it probably once made sense. If someone has a life threatening disease that is easily spread they should not be allowed the chance to spread it within the United States.
