Honestly, I can't see how anyone could truly believe in such nonsense. Some people say that Obama brought Ebola to the United States so he could "control the population", or "take away our freedoms". I say that's ridiculous. Obama allowed the Ebola infected patient into the U.S. so he could have access to the best medical care and have the best chance for surviving. The CDC has some of the best prevention and containment methods on the planet, they will do everything in their power to prevent an Ebola outbreak. The threat of transmission of Ebola from that patient to anyone else is slim to none. If you really think about it, there is absolutely no reason to not have brought an Ebola infected patient to the United States for treatment.

Ebola has been brought to the US by Obama so that everyone gets infected. Right now it may seem like the US have the situation under control but pretty soon the US will bring more Ebola infected patients to 'help' them. During this time the virus will adapt to the american soil and slowly spread (due to bringing people in quarantine). This will give Obama the excuse that no US citizens should escape the country so that the disease doesn't spread to other countries.

I can read quite well. Thanks for the concern. Perhaps you shouldn't take yourself so seriously.

"No cure will be found from Ebola. Also allowing the patient into the United States is dumb. From what I remember as a kid the virus spreads easily and kills fast."

Yep. Quite dumb.

"How fast it kills is actually a good thing, because it keeps it from spreading to fast."

That is what they thought in Outbreak too. ;)

"study the hell out of it, we will eventually discover a cure."

Because that has worked so well with the common cold, cancer and HIV.

Ironically.......the CDC and the Emory hospital is only about 1 hour away......I will accept this debate if there's bunch of suspicious government officials whispering to themselves,,,

Not even human contact. It spreads through bodily fluid contact. And how do you know they won't find a cure? Science kind of does stuff like that- find solutions.

@wylted the patient is extremely well quarantined. Ebola spreads through human contact, and the doctors at the CDC are wearing suits anti-leakage suits to prevent any kind of contact with the disease. Also, if we can extract it from the patients and study the hell out of it, we will eventually discover a cure.

Plus we have better research facilities and can study it better to possibly create a cure.
