What a complete and utter brainless jackass is Congressman Todd Rokita, R-Bedlam. He said on a radio program that some of the illegal immigrant kids that have been conned into coming here are possible carriers of Ebola: http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/indiana-congressman-says-immigrant-kids-might-have-ebola/article_6cd84d69-3909-50d7-aa64-cc211b491795.html
For the readers of this blog, here are the symptoms of Ebola, direct from the CDC. Tell me if you think somebody could make it overland from, say, Guatemala while suffering from this list of ailments:
Symptoms of Ebola HF typically include:
- Joint and muscle aches
- Stomach pain
- Lack of appetite
Some patients may experience:
- A Rash
- Red Eyes
- Sore throat
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Difficulty swallowing
- Bleeding inside and outside of the body
Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to ebolavirus though 8-10 days is most common.
Yeah, seems kinda unlikely, doesn’t it? Pretty obvious to anyone, you’d say, and you’d almost be right. It’s obvious to anyone but a Teabagging Republican Congresscritter. Tell me, why dafuq does ANYONE for these half-wits?
No, make that quarter-wits. We’re supposed to believe that Ebola sufferers (and children, at that) are trekking across Central America, hundreds and hundreds of miles, over mountains and through deserts? Christ on a Lone Star bottle cap, what stupidity exists between the ears of GOP politicos.
