How does she “Know” she is Ebola-freee? I’m sure the nurses in Dallas thought they would not get the disease, they wore protective suits and unlike Ms. Hickox when they left the hospital they were not exposed to an environment of potential exposure. The taxis the Dallas nurses took weren’t used by other people who were potentially exposed to Ebola, the restaurants didn’t have customers and waitresses with family members exposed to Ebola. In West Africa, every seat and every surface outside the hospital or clinic she worked at could have been exposed to Ebola. How does she know she is free of Ebola?
There is no test at this time that can rule out actual exposure, if her blood hasn’t yet shown known Ebola antibodies that does not mean that she is actually free of infection. Yet. There is no vaccine, there is no proven cure. There is hope but we need time and Ms. Hickox is chipping away at that time by her irresponsible behavior. I tried to find a figure for the price tag (to date) for tracking down all the possibly exposed people in the Duncan case, best answer is “God Knows”.
Ms. Hickox isn’t just an Obama supporter, she is Obama. The rules don’t apply to her, the rules and the Constitution don’t constrain him.

(notice his name in the web address, uh huh!)
John F. Kennedy had a killer line in his, “Ask not what your country can do for you …“, Barack Obama has, “Wear pajamas“. Word, Word!
Speaking of J.F.K., he had Jackie O and Marilyn. Barry Soetoro has;
The last four are not exactly Avatars, but I couldn’t resist.
