The nurse at the heart of a New Jersey quarantine verbalized a concern about this potential epidemic degenerating into a police state situation.
That is indeed a very valid concern.
If she is that sensitive to the preservation of American freedom and liberties, does she plan to condemn the coercive intervention on the part of the President that resulted in her release?
Administration propagandists insisted that differing quarantine standards between the states could undermine the resolve of medical professionals to volunteer in the effected regions?
But shouldn’t the primary concern of both the American medical and governmental policy establishments be the preservation of health and well being here in the “Homeland” (the word invoked to condition silence in response to deviants who should otherwise be on an offender registry when they run their hands over your junk in the airport and when they read through your emails)?
