Australia is serious about protecting its citizenry from Ebola

For all the feigned outrage and PC BS out there over Australia's decision to impose a travel ban on Ebola-impacted nations across Africa, the fact is this is the first continent, country and island to take this viral outbreak serious in a concerted effort to protect it's citizenry. Instead of throwing in with the naysayers, the U.S. should be taking notes...
HotAir: While the debate continues in the US as to how best to protect Americans from a potential spread of Ebola, Australia has made a decision on a comprehensive policy. They will issue no new travel visas for people in Ebola-impacted nations in western Africa, and will require travelers from those countries on permanent visas or Australian passports to undergo a mandatory 21-day quarantine prior to entering the country. That applies to health-care professionals returning to Australia after serving in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone...

Not only would a comprehensive policy here make more sense than what we’ve had so far, it would also be a welcome change from the ad hoc treatment and incoherence of the Obama administration...

The scientists need to start acting like scientists instead of politically-correct prima donnas, and the Obama administration needs to get its act together and treat Ebola like a deadly disease instead of a banner for the tolerance brigades.
At least one country out there is taking decisive action. Unfortunately, as animated as this appears, we're still seemingly here...
