Ran across this today. I debated putting in this category but it is mainly generic. The article is a perfect fit for the information that Selco has been passing for years.
Here is Selco’s article:
Both articles deal with the basics but Selco puts the information in a form that can be understood and used.

Good articles. Thanks for posting. A big part of the lack of preparedness amongst the masses is the govt. doesn’t encourage it, but rather leads people to believe that govt. will come to the rescue no matter what. If ebola really takes off, I expect govt. will always be a step behind where they should be in communicating to people what the real situation is.October 1, 2014 at 2:16 am #25761
Government s will try to hide the problems at first causing more damages.October 1, 2014 at 2:29 am #25763
‘The government’ is an easy scapegoat. Let’s blame ‘the government’.
The government is made up of everyday people, like me and like you. There is not a difference. The ‘problem’ sits squarely with each individual person that refuses to accept responsibility for themselves and all that the phrase entails …including the responsibility to keep oneself informed and knowledgeable of the issues of the day and how those issues may or may not affect their chosen path in this life, for we were all granted the free will to choose.October 1, 2014 at 12:14 pm #25781
The point is that we need to prepare for what is coming. The one’s that do not will have a problem. Government can only do so much and in a big SHTF they will not be there. tweva has a point that everyone will blame the government after the SHTF but the only one’s to blame is them self’s.October 1, 2014 at 12:59 pm #25784
When government officials make public statements that are incomplete, wrong, or totally withhold information, it makes “the responsibility to keep oneself informed and knowledgeable of the issues of the day and how those issues may or may not affect their chosen path” nearly impossible. One only needs to listen to a politician misrepresent the truth to advance an agenda; who are the elected officials representing us at the top of the system to understand the extent of the problem.October 1, 2014 at 2:02 pm #25787
“The patient wasn’t involved in helping contain the Ebola outbreak effort, according to Frieden, who declined to give further details on the man’s nationality or travels. CDC researchers said because Ebola is spread through human fluids, he had to have had close contact with someone in Liberia who had the disease or had recently died from it.” ( this is not consistent with the use of full body suits with 100% air particle filtration required by attending medical staff)
“After the patient sought medical care on Sept. 26 and was sent home with antibiotics, he returned in an ambulance to Texas Health Presbyterian two days later and was admitted, said Edward Goodman, an epidemiologist at the hospital. The ambulance workers and other health-care professionals who treated him are being monitored for symptoms, Goodman said.
Scanning electron micrograph of the Ebola virus.
The CDC and Texas doctors are discussing the use of possible experimental treatments, Frieden said, though no decision has been made.
President Barack Obama was briefed about the patient by Frieden, the White House said in a statement. They discussed the patient’s treatment and what was being done to trace the people the man might have contacted.”(The President of the USA needs a briefing but you don’t)
“U.S. authorities didn’t disclose the flights or airlines the patient took from Liberia. No airlines serve Africa from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the main domestic and foreign gateway to North Texas, and none of the major U.S. carriers with overseas networks — American Airlines Group Inc., United Continental Holdings Inc. and Delta Air Lines Inc. — flies to Liberia. Delta dropped operations last month in Monrovia, the country’s capital.”
“possibility the traveler arrived in the U.S. from somewhere else in Africa or via a connection in Europe, and may have stopped elsewhere on a domestic flight before reaching Dallas.
Another suspected Ebola case is being evaluated at a National Institutes of Health facility, U.S. officials said, the 13th such possible infection in the U.S.” Where is this at? Wouldn’t it nice if you knew you might have been exposed so you could protect yourself and the people around you? You’re just supposed to wait for the CDC to contact you and tell you you were exposed.
Certainly leaves you guessing about your risk of exposure. What if you were on an plane with this guy or live in Northern Dallas.October 1, 2014 at 4:06 pm #25795
Sooo all the ambulance personnel, and healthcare providers (first time around) are ‘being monitored’ for symptoms. Does that mean they are still at work, exposing countless other people? This is going to be a mess….
Why aren’t planes/passengers that originate in West Africa denied admission to the USA? Lots of questions, murky answers, information being withheld.October 1, 2014 at 4:15 pm #25796
Today on FOX in live interview the CDC director said denying admission to the US would increase the risk to the US. You can’t make this sh t up.October 1, 2014 at 4:59 pm #25799
I put it forth before, you can’t deny admission, but you can delay it enough to be certain the person doesn’t have anything.
Bring back Ellis Island.
Nobody who travels abroad is exempt, be it zero, ambassadors, doesn’t matter. They get quarantined until its proven they aren’t a carrier. No exceptions.October 1, 2014 at 6:09 pm #25801

WHAT? Like so many in the power structure, they make totally illogical statements and the herd dumbly accepts it like a herd of cows staring at the truck coming to take them to the slaughterhouse. [Also, like Pelosi saying we had to vote for Obamacare to find out what it contained; of course she and her cohorts are exempted.]
I never subscribe to government conspiracy theories but maybe…it’s a way to get rid of superfluous population. Only give medical care to the elite. Except this time they may have a tiger by the tail.October 1, 2014 at 6:19 pm #25802
Whirlibird, Ellis Island was a good thing. A precaution for true protection of this country. My great-grandmother had to wait a few days to prove her red eyes were not a serious communicable disease before gaining entry to join her married daughter and family.
But what about our border problem? (What border? you ask…) It negates any Ellis Island protocol since they are flooding in the back door. I call the illegals ‘termites’, invading the infrastructure before you know they exist, then it’s too late.October 1, 2014 at 6:46 pm #25805
5 Dallas ISD students exposed, maybe.

I heard on TV news today that one of the doctors that contracted ebola was not treating ebola patients. He was a OB/GYN. His staff screened all the patients for ebloa symptoms so they would not be exposed. He contracted ebloa from a person that was non-symptomatic. His level of exposure was high with direct contact to body fluids, It still means a non-symptomatic patient could pass the infection.October 1, 2014 at 7:37 pm #25807
“Nobody who travels abroad is exempt, be it zero, ambassadors, doesn’t matter. They get quarantined until its proven they aren’t a carrier. No exceptions” Whirlybird
If anyone in TX dies from this exposure the President of the US, Directors of DHS, CDC, and a few others should all be held personally responsible with a go to jail card.
I’m feeling bad for those 5 kids but expect more problems to arise. Murphy’s Law is going to emerge as we see more incompetence from our officials.
