• Even Commie California Is Enforcing A 21-day Quarantine For People From Ebola Hot Zones

    Dr. Ron Chapman, California’s  health officer, announced Wednesday that his state is requiring a 21-day quarantine for those who have traveled from Ebola-stricken regions.

    Chapman urged that the quarantines will be executed by county health officials on a case-by-case basis. California quarantines comes just after New Jersey and New York ordered mandatory quarantines for health care workers.

    Still, California’s quarantine is evidence of a somewhat thought out strategy for dealing with the scores of health care workers who have volunteered to help stamp out Ebola in West Africa.

    President Obama, on the other hand, has been sending mixed messages for months. He has called for military members to be held in a 21-day quarantine, after they return from duty in West Africa. And that military quarantine caused a flood of criticism to some in from military spouses.

    Worse still, Obama’s been nothing less than confusing on whether or not he will mandate healthcare workers to undergo a 21-day quarantine.

    Obama thanks it’s okay to enforce different Ebola standards for military volunteers, than for civilian volunteers. It’s not okay. Obama’s even going so far as to treat non-American Ebola patients. This is insane.

    California Gov. Jerry Brown says he would never “make a political decision on something as dangerous as Ebola,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Yeah right.

    California nurses and administrators have become a political thorn in Jerry Brown’s side because they say their staff is not prepared to treat Ebola patients.

    But at least Jerry Brown, unlike Obama, has the guts to do something that makes sense and best ensures public safety.

    (Obama’s presidency has sucked so much that it’s gotten to the point where I’m agreeing with Jerry Brown).

    God help us all.
