Opinion from Chuq’s Desk:
I have been silent on this Ebola story for good reason……the reason is that Americans are not thinking rationally….they are fixated on panic and hysteria. The media is doing a good job of keeping the conversation a way from what we should be focusing all our attention…….treatment and a cure. And why the resources were not available.
The media is basically leading the charge on the panic……from the constant reports to the out right lies all to perpetuate the fear. After all there is an election and the more innuendos that are passed around the more the real issues are ignored.
Americans love to be afraid……..but sadly it seldom equates to action to solve the problem of the fear. We all have an opinion and we cherish the fact that we can voice it when we feel the need…..it is as if we bitch and moan enough the problem will go away.
Think about it…….( pause here for reflection)……………which problem was solved by bitching and moaning?
We will continue to bite our nails until the story looses its luster and thanks to the media we shall move on for our next fearsome occurrence.
Yes, Ebola is a deadly disease but personally I am more worried about the loss of my country to special interests. Something else to think about…….more people in this country will die from Enterovirus D68 than Ebola……Or more people in this country have died because of hunger than Ebola……..if you really want to have something to worry about then may suggest that you could be one of those that die from hunger rather than Ebola.
With each passing day it is not about the disease but rather finger pointing at who made the biggest mistake….it is all about “cover your ass”……more so than fighting the disease.
Instead of saying crap or looking for the culprit….the media might should look at the real cause of this…..idiots and their rush for a small government……with spending slashed needed cash for public health was slashed….what did you think the result of that action would be?
Maybe if we cared more about the direction of the country on public health and less of what fearsome thing is under the bed then we might have a country that would not be afraid of our shadows.
Your country is slipping away from you and you prefer to spend your time looking for a boogey man that the media gives you.
MORONS! This country is run by MORONS!
Calm down and wait! This too shall pass….then on to the next fear.
