    I find it remarkable that we have the first case of ebola diagnosed. Could it be the lack of security at our borders and airports?

    What do you think?

    I think perhaps other countries aren't publicizing their ebola cases.

    Have you checked into greenhouse gases and carbon emissions along with the role of the NRA?

    Thanks CTB for posting ITL's comment. I stand corrected, but it took nearly a week for Spain to step "Into The spotLight. :smilewinkgrin:

    If I remember the news correctly, the guy actually contracted the disease in Africa, traveled to the US and became symptomatic once he was in the States. So this technically is a diagnosed case in the US, but it seems that.... "honor"... really should go to Spain IMO.

    We're the primary hub for travel on this side of the Atlantic. Why wouldn't we be?

    Is that based on any evidence, or just a feeling?

    People from West Africa are entering the country every day without being checked.

    It's not from a lack of security. We know they are here.

    It's from a lack of leadership from the administration.

    The use of the word "perhaps" means I don't have any evidence, therefore it's just a hunch.

    Perhaps you're right, then.

    Is there a connection between promiscuity and the spread of ebola--other than the gallant folks trying to help?

    Seems kind of like AIDS--still rampant among promiscuous monkeys and people.

    The famines and pestilence are here folks. Now what?

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    Other than being deadly and extremely contagious?

    Doubtful. Ebola is the most virulent as the symptoms get progressively worse, is bad even when the afflicted die. So unless people enjoy having s*x with a person who is vomiting, has diarrhea, and is running a fever, I kind of doubt it.

    How about a traitorous impostor usurping the office of the President, and fools who won't bring justice upon him?

    I think that's the earthly reason.

    Now God's reasons are manifold, not the least of which is a judgment upon Sodom.
