Obama Regime Scrapped Quarantine Regulations

This 2010 story is an interesting blast from the past:

The Obama administration has quietly scrapped plans to enact sweeping new federal quarantine regulations that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention touted four years ago as critical to protecting Americans from dangerous diseases spread by travelers.

The regulations, proposed in 2005 during the Bush administration amid fears of avian flu, would have given the federal government additional powers to detain sick airline passengers and those exposed to certain diseases. They also would have expanded requirements for airlines to report ill passengers to the CDC and mandated that airlines collect and maintain contact information for fliers in case they later needed to be traced as part of an investigation into an outbreak. …

The American Civil Liberties Union had objected to potential passenger privacy rights violations and the proposal’s “provisional quarantine” rule. That rule would have allowed the CDC to detain people involuntarily for three business days if the agency believed they had certain diseases: pandemic flu, infectious tuberculosis, plague, cholera, SARS, smallpox, yellow fever, diphtheria or viral hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola. …

CDC officials had stressed the rules would only be used in rare circumstances when someone posed a threat and refused to cooperate. The new rules, they noted at the time, added legal protections and appeals for those subject to quarantines.

Nonetheless, the regs were likely to discriminate against the diseased. Thanks to Hope & Change, such barriers to social justice are being removed. How can we achieve equality when some people are diseased while others aren’t?

On tips from DinaRehn, Jester, Manuel, Byron, and Bill T.

    WHAT? You expect Obama to lock down the country right before the single most important mid-term elections in the entire known history of the galaxy? They just have to live for another couple of weeks, for Pete’s sake.

    Any day now.

    Well now…… can’t discriminate against the diseased. Just wait til the system can’t take care of anyone because it is overloaded and shuts down when enough of the medical staff is too sick to work.

    They are doing it to us…right before our eyes…IN THE DAMN OPEN.

    What the hell is it going to take before we hold this a**hold accountable? He is enabling Islamists, erasing our borders, importing diseases, denouncing news organizations, sticking his finger in the eyes of Christians, undermining Israel…WHAT THE F**K IS IT GOING TO TAKE???

    Yep…and NOW you know why it was so important to get Obama-Care passed ASAP. A system that has been gutted, that has fewer doctors, hospitals, nurses, medications and is already teetering will almost assuredly collapse with a major outbreak of something like Ebola.

    Then we won’t have to worry about too many Americans living high on the hog or “killing the planet”.

    Mission accomplished.

    Ain’t that the truth. When you look at Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, Obamacare, the VA and lies about the economy, ebola, and Ferguson, conspiracy theories may not be crazy after all.

    Man, I hate this. I want my frickin’ country back.

    I so hear you. When you look at everything that bastard has done to America…even calculating in the news blackout…I find it almost unimaginable that he’s still popular with almost half the country.

    I honestly think we underestimate how effective the schools have been at indoctrinating at least two generations of kids into anti-American, socialist driven, white-hating thought.

    Just sayin’. To those who don’t have a healthcare background…worse case scenario. Reduce exposure. Avoid crowds. Stop buying food prepared by other people. Buy enough food, water and supplies to be self sufficient in your home for at least a month.

    Better to be prudent and prepared, than subborn and stupid! Enterovirus is not finished running its course. You may have it, be asymptomatic, yet pass it on to others. Weakened immune systems allow the body

    Good advice…and keep your resistance up with natural or supplemental Vit C and D3….just because you’ve been exposed
    doesn’t mean you’ll absolutely get it or absolutely die. This crap is serious…just be prepared to hunker down until it burns itself out.
    This is NOT a drill.

    Also, try L Lysine (amino acid supplement). Mechanism of action, assists cell outer membrane defence against viral permeability. Helps retard viral entry into cell.

    Thanks for the support. Isn’t it ironic that up-or-down voting on Discus is more honest and secure than in, say, Al Franken’s district!

    Yeah, we’re being had. The lack of outrage puzzles me. I know I’M pissed off, as are most people here. Why can we not get a movement started…something so powerful and big that it can’t be shrugged off like the Tea Party…something that will terrify the progressives on BOTH sides of the aisle?

    When there was the anthrax scare after 9/11 – I remember Mayor Giuliani in NY kept everyone updated everyday and every time a new update was issued. What he knew you knew – No Lies. No guessing. No Mistrust.

    Obama – CDC – WH – Washington in general – you just cannot trust anything they tell you…starting from Obama telling us it would be ‘highly unlikely’ ebola would reach the United States. Now it is here…See? All you get is dreadfully poor information. And Lies.

    You really have to ask yourself WHY ?? Why lie ?. More importantly, why not just not allow any flights from epidemic areas…Why ??

    Do not trust this President or this Administration including the CDC for any information. They all suffer from the liberal mental disorder Political Correctness.

    More hygiene info. The simple act of rubbing your hands over and over under water with soap and water is sooo effective. Multiple times throughout the day is extremely effective. It is the light, vigorous “friction”.

    That’s Libtardism: everyone must be “equal,” which means everyone in America must be dying of Ebola, TB, Enterovirus, whatever — can’t protect ourselves if even a single person in Africa or elsewhere is sick; come on over, guys! We’ll feed you, school you and your offspring, give you phones, TV’s, whatever, while you infect millions of us! Love ya, Libtards! Hope you’re the first to die . . .
