    We can not live in fear….. Isaiah44:2 he is our CREATOR- he protected us even before we were born. No illness- no sickness- no famine will bring us down unless it is God's will- and then you know our eternity is going to be worth all that we sacrificed for here on earth. . Don't give up- that's the devil!!!!!

    +Cathy kish True, but they must also be well trained to handle the problem. Clearly the CDC thinks they are ready but the poor nurses are not. This is just another reason why it is still better to invoke travel bans and have the world put all their efforts in West Africa. With such a huge effort in a focused area even Kim Jong-Un may come out of hiding and help! Obviously though, this virus is a bad, bad bug.

    Solution…….Stop bringing the ones infected back to the US!!! Keep em where they outbreak originated and treat em there instead of the chance of spreading the virus.

    Said to say, but this country always thinks they have the solution to all problems. And like this, just make it worse.

    Hes actually making it worse. Have you heard of any other countries, besides the US, that have sent a few thousand troops down there to help and chance infection and death? Isnt there enough dying in the middle east already???

  29. Sage Edmundson

    News said troops volunteer to aid in Ebola outbreak. Bullshit, that was their orders from their superiors and thats what you do when you sign that dotted line and join the military. The government owns your butt

    +Oscar Davila If you get Ebola symptoms, go to the hospital quick because they can save your life. The problem is if you do not get medical attention quickly.

    Ebola isn't a death sentence, especially in an American hospital. This paranoia is annoying, you're more likely to get AIDs and be struck by lightning within the same day.

  34. JiveLive2G

    October 15, 2014

    +Misty Smith They allowed her on because she had no symptoms, right? Hmm…but she had been in contact with an Ebola patient…or did they think she was fine because she was wearing protective clothing? When she took that flight, was Nina already diagnosed?

    +Oscar Davila If you blow your brains out, it will be spread all over the room and everything in it. You'll be putting the ones who find you, the ME workers who have to gather your remains and hazmat workers who'll have to do clean-up at risk for getting Ebola, too. Just go to a hospital which at least has some controls.

    Ebola would normally not be a threat in the US but in this case it is. These careless instances are not by chance. This is negligence and human lives are being dangled and played with. With as much knowledge that is available about this disease on the internet … Even I know how to contain this disease and I don't have a degree in the medical field. Let's see… If I was a nurse caring for a patient with Ebola… I wouldn't think of flying until I knew I was OK!! That's number one right there. I would have to know and weigh this all out before, during, and after caring for this patient. How stupid to trust that everything was OK and not be cautious in this matter. The fact that they are getting the disease is evidence they are mishandling fluids and who knows what else. This is so obviously ignorant. Hospitals are nasty and are not equipped to handle such disease. People are too ignorant and careless out here. Too many mistakes are getting made. Anyone with any kind of sense would be watchful of this because ppl are both stupid and sneaky. This is easy to spread. And if something were to happen like a widespread epidemic, this would be EXACTLY how it would start. People are just so naive out here. US people are in trouble. Hospital should be sued!! Only reason they are not mentioning being regulated is probably because the government is in on this. But, if this happened at a black owned business… Shut DOWN would immediately in effect!! I wouldn't blow my brains out and I Def will not lose any sleep or be afraid. I am just appalled at everyone's ignorance, carelessness and nastiness that even makes Ebola disease a threat in the US. Ignorant ppl are a threat to society!

    +MoLesa Williams You say that "Ebola would normally not be a threat in the US", but it clearly would be because as we have seen, many hospitals are not prepared. On the nurse, she should not have flown with symptoms, unless she was misguided, but I wouldn't sweat that too much since no one has been infected on a plane. On poor handling of infected fluids, that was a problem with hospital protocol, not the nurses, which again speaks of unpreparedness. Infection of nurses because of lack of appropriate equipment is also not the nurses fault since they were given the wrong instructions. But yes, travel bans should be effected.

    +JiveLive2G I mean normally as in it hasn't been been a threat. This is an abnormal situation. I know how I would be due to fact that I have kids and loved ones at home where I would be very cautious about going around anyone so soon. According to what I read, Ebola is not something you can just catch. There has to be a mishandling of fluids. Now that's just something EVERY hospital should be prepared to do… Handle all fluids as if they are contagious. I would just imagine this should be standard process. And that's what I mean when I say HOSPITALS and Dr. Offices are NASTY! I grew up knowing this. This is ridiculous and very avoidable is the point I was making. This could have been avoided and very simply. I'm disgusted that the fate of ppl's lives are so carelessly dangled around. That's all.

    +MoLesa Williams I agree with you that the situation is out of the ordinary. But I am actually shocked by your statement that hospitals are that reckless with waste. is that really how they are? I haven't noticed that because I go to a top 10 hospital in the country, but man, that is sad to learn. If that is the case, then I know of science labs that are run with better biohazard waste management protocols. What I would concede though is that once the vomiting and diarrhea start, it is very messy because I imagine that patients do this right on the bed because they are so weak. So the nurses have copious amounts of virus-loaded fluids all over the place to clean and can get infected very easily if adorning the wrong protective equipment. It is ridiculous to note that while medics in West Africa are complaining about lack of protective gear, medics in the US are complaining about the same thing. Worrisome, but I think it will be handled in the US if the travel bans are instituted. For West Africa, the situation is unfortunately an all out war.

    When it comes to cleaning up vomit, blood and diarrhea I know there is a lot of room for human error. And it is very messy. I have never trusted hospitals because I can see this being a challenge. And I agree, science labs have the key formula when it comes to dealing with biohazard waste materials. I also use to work as a lab technician as an intern at a very "prestigious" hospital and know that even with the precautions that were taken to ensure no germs got in or out… There is always room for error. Cleaning up contagious fluids is not easy. I think every hospital should have proper equipment and a special crew that does this separate from the nurses even to oversee that the nurses follow proper protocol. Nurses and doctors get tired and sometimes just need extra support to where they have that backup clean-up crew ready to aid the nurses and doctors with even getting out of their contaminated protective gear. It would be well worth the investment. But, I know with the system that is in place at this time… this will not happen as Obama would rather hire a Ebola "point" person instead of spending money on extra precautions making sure we don't need a point person. Smh… That is all the confirmation I need to know what is important in this country… And it is not human lives. I wasn't trying to be hard on anyone particularly but I feel like there are many things that are not considered that leaves human lives in jeopardy. And although I know this country is run on a system… I believe that everyone's life is important. Yet this system that is in place does not have the capacity for everybody nor does it value individual life. It's run by investors and an elite class that would rather wipe out a lot of people than save them. All for the sake of protecting the interest of this system that seems to be getting out of control. The carelessness and recklessness that I speak of is very real. It exists in every dept and aspect of our community… the jail system, the police department, everywhere that has an elected official with ties to the government and gov't spending/control. The support that is needed to reduce carelessness and fix the wrong is just not there. This is only an example. This is only Ebola. There are more contagious man made killers out there where a third the US population could have been wiped out by now with what happened in this case. This was only a test and an eye opener. There is way more coming ahead. Lol!

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
