Spoiled Ebola Nurse Risks Countless Lives



Nurse Kaci Hickox complained that her rights were violated by putting her in quarantine. I think that she forfeits her rights when she goes to an infected country and comes back with even a smidgeon of a chance that she’s ill.

You remember “smidgeon.”  Obama said it about the chance of the corrupt IRS being corrupt.

What is the spoiled Hickox complaining about?  Twenty-one days in a hospital facility?  And she feels like a prisoner. She is a prisoner of her own left wing mind.


Kaci Hickox EbolaNearly twenty years ago I went to prison for two years for tax evasion.  I was no threat to the nation’s health. I was not diseased.


And I took my punishment like a man.  I didn’t complain.  I wrote twelve movie scripts and a published book of poems.  I wrote a rap album.


Give me a break Hickox, quit crying about your slight inconvenience. You’re a well-meaning person who wants to help Africans and you’re not willing to do twenty-one days of confinement?  You remind me of some of the spoiled upper class ladies that I know in New York.  Get a life.


And now some judge who is obsessed with principles and lacking in pragmatism has let you off your Ebola quarantine?


You are riding a bike like Lance Armstrong, another person who was unconcerned about other people and cheated them.  But he only cheated them out of trophies.  You could potentially cheat other people out of their lives.


And if not you, if you are clean, you could set a precedent for other people who have returned from Sierra Leone to go out in public and spread Ebola among innocents.
