Sorry to crap all over your dystopian dreams, buddy.
Creative misinterpretation of words isn't the same as context.
Again, utter hilarity. You accuse me of 'creative misinterpretation' yet keep coming with these baseless claims of my 'dystopian dreams' and 'Fox Powered Rage Cycle'.
I think we call this projection.
Like I said, creative misinterpretation. Go back and read the words that show up when you click those links and you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that they don't match any of what you said.
Remember how I was talking about context... even linking to articles I read to support my claims? Here you just say "they don't say what you think they said" without offering any supporting information.
It's almost as if you aren't interested in having a conversation and more interested in simply saying "you're wrong" over and over again... without ever even conceiving of the possibility that you yourself may have been wrong.
The CDC director said they should be able to contain an epidemic. That's been done. That some folks might get ill was suggested in the first link. No intelligent person doubted that could happen.
And before he made those comments he didn't think Ebola would reach our shores. Then we have two nurses infected and a few other possible cases. Only time will tell if he is right, but he's been wrong a few times thus far.
And the CDC director didn't "blame" anyone for breach of protocol.
No one by name but the implication was quite clear when he said: "at some point a breach of protocol". It probably wasn't you or I breaching protocol... but one of those interacting with Duncan who did... and given it wasn't you or I who was infected...
None the less, the CDC director eventually apologized for the previous statements. So much for not blaming.
The fact that the disease got out shows that the protocol wasn't followed correctly
I don't know if you heard... but there were some issues with the protocols as specified on their website and training materials:
... which by the way have since been removed from the website.
Maybe just maybe the protocol was being followed... but that it in of itself was wrong... maybe?
The fact you cannot even acknowledge such a thing and instead continue your partisan attacks says quite a bit about you.
OR we have a new vector.
At last! You've said something substantive... yet I don't recall the CDC director saying that.
These folks aren't morons, and the suggested protocols have done a pretty good job of helping to contain this stuff in the past.
Pretty good? Again, the director said that it was a breach which caused the infections, ergo follow the protocols and you won't get infected, don't follow the protocols and you will... but is that what has happened?
Though with regards to being morons... maybe, maybe not... but I would at least like it if they can get their narrative right with regards to the whole you can give, but not get Ebola on a bus thing.
Sh*t happens, however, and by all accounts, this hospital was not prepared for this.
True, but what about groups like Doctors Without Borders? Unlike virtually everyone staffing our local hospitals, they are the ones going into the hot zones to treat people at the source... and they have suffered a number of infections of their own... and you'd think that given such day to day interactions, they would be the most meticulous at practicing such protocols.
The CDC isn't in charge of the management of every hospital in the country, and if they tried to take on that task, you and your ilk would be the first ones to scream government over-regulation.
Again you arguing against things I haven't said, so to confirm... you are just going to keep screaming "you're wrong" over and over again I take it? ... Or did I miss throngs of conservatives (and I) rallying against the President's proposal for SWAT like teams run by the CDC to quickly move in anytime there was a case?
So, jump back on your Fox Powered Rage Cycle and take another lap.
Tell me, what's it like to have Fox Derangement Syndrome? It's quite clear you are obsessed with them and assume I get all of my information from them... yet I do not think once (though I could be wrong) have I cited Fox here... instead citing a multitude of sources.
Odd how you cannot be bothered to do the same thing... even once.
But since you expect me to be as blindingly partisan as you are showing yourself to be, I guess I could give you an article which will send you into further fits, consider this: How the Feds Block Ebola Cures
