Doctor, Nurse without borders acting like a President without borders

You'd think medical so-called professionals would understand the importance of containing the potential spread of a deadly disease with a 70% mortality rate. But then again, you'd think a president would understand the importance of keeping our citizenry reasonably safe, whether that means working with Congress to responsibly securing our border or restricting travel to/from Ebola hot spots with adequate quarantine in between. Instead, they're all Democrats living in a borderless fantasyland, and this is the results...

First the lying doctor:
NYPost: The city’s first Ebola patient initially lied to authorities about his travels around the city following his return from treating disease victims in Africa, law-enforcement sources said.

Dr. Craig Spencer at first told officials that he isolated himself in his Harlem apartment — and didn’t admit he rode the subways, dined out and went bowling until cops looked at his MetroCard the sources said.

“He told the authorities that he self-quarantined. Detectives then reviewed his credit-card statement and MetroCard and found that he went over here, over there, up and down and all around,” a source said.

Spencer finally ’fessed up when a cop “got on the phone and had to relay questions to him through the Health Department,” a source said. Officials then retraced Spencer’s steps, which included dining at The Meatball Shop in Greenwich Village and bowling at The Gutter in Brooklyn.
Then the defiant, confrontational jewel of a nurse:
CNN: A nurse who was quarantined against her will in New Jersey after treating Ebola patients in West Africa will not obey officials' instructions to seclude herself at home in Maine, she and her lawyers said on the "Today" show and to the Bangor Daily News on Wednesday.

One of the nurse's lawyers told CNN Wednesday that they are trying to work with Maine officials to avoid escalating the situation. The nurse, Kaci Hickox, returned to Maine on Monday after New Jersey authorities released her from a hospital tent where state officials kept her over the weekend as part of a new quarantine policy. She hired a lawyer and spoke out about her isolation and was then transported to Maine.

She has twice tested negative for the virus.

Maine officials have said that they would ask Hickox to quarantine herself at home until the passage of 21 days from her last possible contact with an Ebola patient, adding that they would make it involuntary if she resisted.

"Today" show host Matt Lauer asked her if she planned to follow guidelines and finish that quarantine on November 10.

"I don't plan on sticking to the guidelines," she said. "I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies that have been forced upon me."

That could set up a confrontation with Maine officials.
Question to ponder: Isn't similar deception how Ebola entered our country in the first place? I guess the same could ultimately be said of the recent influx of Enterovirus, TB, Chagas, you name it. Besides the obvious entitled mentality of these two, shared by millions of liberalized Americans, this exemplifies only a single, yet significant, danger among the many faced when our country is left without borders.
