I woke up this morning and was surprised to discover that the whole world has not been wiped out by swine flu.
If ever there was a designer disease to promote political agendas (i.e., control the population with fear) and create bottom line profits (i.e., push large stores of vaccine that are nearing expiration), the pagaent winner is swine flu. Why, even the name “swine flu” has disappeared from official usage and replaced with the more omnious H1N1 designation because the pork lobby convinced the curtain pullers that the use of the term would hurt their sales. Their case was proved with the trend setting Paris Hilton noted she have no problem with swine flu because she didn’t eat pork.
I’ve been flooded with people terrified that they either had swine flu or that they may get it. I’ve even had more folks calling afraid that their dogs had it! I’ve heard of whole mission trips becing scuttled because of the fear of getting it.
Check out Paul Sonderman’s piece on this fabricated pandemic. Great job of putting it into perspective.
Oh, in case you’re wondering what I really think about this stupidity, just know that your chance of dying from this monster virus is three times less than being struck by lightening.
Now, go have a great day!
