As of this week, America began fighting its first case of Ebola. According to experts, it's really nothing to worry over. If you've been watching TV, listening to the radio or reading the news, you know the mantra…don't panic, we've got it under control. The Centers for Disease Control believe that our nation's lone case of the Ebola virus will be easily contained and managed, and they suggest that Americans can literally wash our hands of this West African epidemic because it falls under the category of Third World problems.
So aside from the implication by the CDC that the World Health Organization has completely botched its primary directive by letting what the CDC portrays as a filth disease become a regional epidemic, we have no reason to doubt that the experts in the federal government do, in fact, have this health concern under control….because?
It's not like the federal government ever lies.
