Don't Believe the Hype!
Call me a Doubting Debbie, but I ain't buying it. Where is the scary pandemic? Why are we not dropping like flies? Could this be because the media is once again trying to whip up hysteria?
I have seen it too many times. I remember when the Bush cronies whipped up support for the Iraq war. They scared us into believing that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Collin Powell even did a presentation where our troops were certain to be subjected to biological weapons once they approached a certain distance from Baghdad. It didn't happen.
Lo and behold, Iraq didn't have any weapons of mass destruction. Whoops! Our bad. Sorry for the hundreds of thousands of deaths we caused by invading your country. The Iraq invasion served no purpose other than filling up the coffers of the defense industry, hiking up the price of oil, and getting revenge on Saddam for mocking George H.W. Bush. We were all gullible sheep back then to believe the propaganda.
Now, we should utilize our critical thinking abilities, ask questions, and look at the facts. The statistics on H1N1 do not look all that daunting. Check here, here, and here. While I think this whole hullabaloo was good practice for various world government agencies to test their preparedness, this H1N1 virus ain't the great plague sweeping over humanity.
When religion, government or media instills fear, somebody profits and ultimately controls the masses of weak minded fools. I refuse to be one of them. You may now crawl out of your caves and start making sweet love again.
