People arguing about the 3 states in America that chose to enforce 21 day quarantine for people coming in from West Africa…Looks like Italy and and American government agree on a quarantine if Americans troops are entering another country….if it’s okay to quarantine American troops in Italy why is it such a big deal in America. …personally I feel this is safeguarding our country….please continue to help but once you get back here people should be concerned about America. …just my thoughts
WASHINGTON (AP) — An Army two-star general and 11 of his staff are being isolated at the base in Italy upon returning from serving in West Africa to help with the Ebola fight.
The general and his staff were met by Italian security officials wearing full hazardous materials suits when they arrived in Vicenza, Italy, over the weekend, a senior military official said Monday.
Maj. Gen. Darryl A. Williams, the commander who led the U.S. response in Liberia, and the members of his headquarters staff were some of the first troops to go to Liberia and were there to provide the initial assessments of the military needs and to begin coordinating the U.S. response.

Okay, so in honor of next week’s first official Funny Blog Friday #FBF (which you can read about here), I’m hosting a little competition. Basically, you can submit a great post to me, new or old, that I will post on my blog next Friday (October 31st) when there will be a lot of traffic.

My favorite submissions will be posted here and the best post will be featured and that person will get a $25 gift card to their choice of these establishments. (Only because they’re the only gift cards on Amazon that can be delivered virtually.) Then, next Friday, there will also be a lottery for another gift card for anyone who comments on my post that day. Even…
In this day and age relationships are something to be valued….
We want that perfect person to have that perfect relationship to lead to the perfect life. …
Hate to break it to you but one will never find that….
A real relationship has to be built from the bottom to the top….
That person you believe to be perfect has their faults…..
And your perfect relationship may have a small or big rocks to get over…
That perfect life as we all know comes with obstacles to overcome….
You have to take the good along with the bad….
Love someone when they are at their best and worst….
Take the time to build each other up….
Solid relationships are built upon trust…..
Trust in that you will always have my back regardless…..
Solid relationships are built upon commitment….
Commitment to the preservation of us….
Solid relationships are built upon love…..
Your perfect person, relationship, and life is something that those involved have to work at and fight for…
It doesn’t come in a day, month, or even a year….
It comes over time …..
You just have to be willing to make that commitment. ..
Those who chose to ignore the bigger picture may be missing vital information that may affect their smaller circle…..
I wonder when they will awake up….
The world is coming upon a change….
Ebola rising up in places we thought were safe from it….
Police states where putting your hands up still gets you one to the dome….
Lies upon lies from those in charge….
I wonder how much more will it take for people to come to terms with the reality of the real world. ….
The illusions that are fed to the public leads to fear….
Fear leads to panic….
