Ebola, Illegal Immigration and Common Sense

General Kelly (USMC) predicted last week that people traveling from Liberia to Central and South America will not be quarantined or prevented from entering the Un-united States of Bananas. Why expect that…we don’t do it either. He predicted that the infection would spread rapidly resulting in even greater illegal immigration across our southern border in search of the best (and free) medical care in the world.

Even if a Marine hadn’t predicted it…it makes sense.

This is an example of how the government cannot fix any problems (aside from those problems where they unleash the military…which is rare). They are particularly impotent regarding the problems they created intentionally or negligently. This makes sense because if they didn’t even see the problem or epidemic they were fabricating …how can we reasonably expect them to solve the problem?

Not halting the flights from Western Africa is a prime example of how stupid these people in government are. It’s a matter of basic quarantine, which is an idea that originated in the Pentateuch, so everyone should understand it by now. Moses understood because he was guided by the Maker’s Manual. Obama, who I suspect is as oblivious of the Bible as he is everything else, could never be expected to understand such things. And the way you institute a quarantine is to separate the infected as far from the uninfected as possible. In the immediate application that means you stop all incoming flights, ships, trucks, bicycles, cars, life vests and icebergs originating in Liberia and similar African banana republics. Instead re-route such travelers to North Korea, China, Moscow or ISIS controlled parts of Syria and Iraq. Such travelers can wait in those places until they are disease free.

Stephen Bowers

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
