This thread was very interesting to go back through in light of the COVID...thank God we didn’t have an Ebola outbreak can you imagine the insanity???

Very interesting thread to bring back from the dead. I had certainly forgotten about it. Bedlamite was a bit prescient on page one already.

I'm waiting for something like this to pop up in India or China.

Covid has been a quite useful tool to gauge who can be on your pandemic team and who just needs to get shot as soon as they are in range like a zulu.

I'm so contrarian that I didn't respond to the thread.

Can you imagine the insanity if that outbreak would have happened during the Trump admin?
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

IIRC, Marburg was actually airborne... Most of the "local" bugs required spray for contamination. I suspect that if we had had an actual pandemic, we would have seen actual quarantines, instead of the play-acting that we got.
 
During the first part of the "two weeks to flatten," I actually saw mass transit buses dropping off workers at local healthcare places. WIth long-term care patients. And then driving on to their next stop on their normal route.

I see I've been spreading my special type of sunshine for longer than I thought.

The Bush/Obama years broke me  :laugh:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

I don't think that Marburg is an airborne virus -- it's spread by direct contact with infected body fluids

I imagine the media would have had actual heart attacks on the air. 

However, I doubt Trump would have transported ebola patients back to the US and put them in a hospital in the middle of a major city that wasn't really set up to handle it.  I think Obama was trying to start a crisis.   If it was a distraction, I don't remember what else was happening at that time. 

Which was the Chinese virus that got into the US during the Obama years?  (Swine flu?)  It didn't spread like COVID, but it was a serious outbreak and the media never really got the vapors over it like COVID.

   Mass transit is probably the real super spreader, "they're" not going to tell us tho.
Politicians and bureaucrats are considered productive if they swarm the populace like a plague of locust, devouring all substance in their path and leaving a swath of destruction like a firestorm. The technical term is "bipartisanship".

The elites don't ride mass transit so that's not their problem
