Got your Flu Shot? (Video)

(Blog Note: Due to a family obligations I have fallen behind with this blog. The problem has been taken care of and we now return you to normal service.)


This weekend found all media outlets in the universe screaming that the world as we know it will end because of an outbreak of the flu. The coverage has only gotten worse. Fox, MSNBC, CNN, CNBC and even Bloomberg; no one was immune from the hysteria. To make matters worse look who we have in charge of the whole shooting match.

Yeah, I really feel safe. This is the same woman that does not think that closing the border is "illegal".

Wow. That's all I can say. There is a documented outbreak in Mexico and the Sec of HLS thinks that the sieve that is our southern border is not a problem? Does she think that illegals will stop coming here because they might be sick? Why not just open the damn border and let them just come right on in? If the person charge of keeping us safe doesn't see the problem then I guess we (non-Obama voters) must all just be crazy. (Wait, she has already covered that with the Right Wing Extremist Memo.)

Whew, got a little side tracked there. Sorry for that.

Anyways, the coverage has caused all kinds of unforeseen responses.

China is going to ban US pork and beef even though it has been proven that the flu is not spread by consuming meat. Really? China has billions of people that they are having trouble feeding and they are going to stop buying meat from us? Sounds like a real winning plan to me.

Now it is being reported that there will be "deaths" in the US. The flu kills 36,000 per year per the CDC. There are already deaths. The death toll will rise if this flu turns pandemic.

So, how can we stop it? I don't know if it can be stopped. With our borders leaking like a sieve and with the death toll in Mexico rising forcing more Mexicans north to get away from the epidemic, the spread in the southern US will only get worse.

Can it get any worse? Yep, sure can. The flu has leapfrogged the border and landed in the most densely populated city in the US. New York City. Apparently some students on spring break in Mexico brought back more than tee shirts and tans. Just think about it. The city with the largest population and the fourth largest population density in the US has an outbreak of this new flu.

But, don't worry. The Messiah is on top of things.

God it sure is great to have such a caring person in the White House.

I have one piece of advice for everyone.

The Stand. Read it.
