Ebola is a Disease; It is not a Political Issue

Diseases, like death, do not recognize ANY human social or political division. If Ebola were so difficult to catch, as some have suggested, it would not be a pandemic in three African countries and health care professionals would not be catching it.  This is not an issue of one group of people against another group of people. This is an issue of health verses illness.  Isolating Ebola infested areas of the world from non-infested areas is simply a matter of self-preservation.  Isolating those areas does not mean help cannot go to them.  It is simply a measure to stop the disease from leaving the infected areas.  The politicization of this is childish and stupid.
