Double Trouble

Would you work for a company that paid you $0.01 on your first day of work and doubled your pay every day thereafter?

You'd be a fool not to.

On the last day of the 30 days of work you would be paid $2,685,354.56.

So, substitute Ebola patients for the penny. If each one infects just two other persons, in 30 sets of transmissions you would have 2,685,354 cases of Ebola. On the 31st set of transmission you would have 5,368,709 cases.

Do you understand why it is spreading so quickly in West Africa?

Do you understand why it is so important to prevent Ebola from establishing itself in the United States by ANY means possible?

Joe - I assume that Ebola is spreading so quickly in Africa because they don't have the proper treatment for it.

We need to stop the spread of Ebola in this country as fast as we can. We need to use our resourses the best we can to stop the spread of such a deadly disease.

sh: Open borders can't possibly result in any type of danger. (Unless you count sick and dead kids, Ebola ridden adults, terrorist invasions, etc.)
