That’s rich, wealthy people fly on private jets not commercial airliners. But, do agree its air travel that makes the world so closely linked.

To be generous, I am afraid that the relatively wealthy will start spreading ebola because of their mobility. Then we will be screwed. However, the “empathy” suggested at the end of this article is the opposite of what curtails the spread of ebola.

Local customs and behaviors are spreading this disease around.

In fact, only a very small number of “the wealthy” travel to these locations. The vast majority of “the wealthy” value their health too much to go to a location with an Ebola outbreak. In fact, most of those westerners there now are “do-gooder” liberals that want there specifically because of Ebola.

No, this is another Progressive Liberal talking point headline blaming “the wealthy” for everything wrong in the world.
