It's coming, friends; Bird Flu the key to November GOP "win"
They've got us all primed. The drumbeat is steady. Chertoff announced that it'll be here in six months -- how conveeeeeeeeeeenient.

I don't think BushCo will outright do Martial Law stuff. Here is how it will play out...through their favorite tactic, FEAR.

FEAR FEAR FEAR.

BushCo cannot count on a fake terra attack again, because the GOP is already too vulnerable on the "keeping us safe" angle. The GOP would be skewered if they allowed us to be attacked again. BUT...if we're in the midst of a major flu outbreak, and it is CONTAGIOUS, we'll be advised to stay indoors, avoid contact with others. The subtext: Don't go to a crowded polling place full of snotty kids and disease-ridden old people. Stay home! Play it safe!

Enter Diebold, Sequoia, ES&S, et al.

The day after the election, we'll hear about how people stayed home in droves, and since no one could predict who would come out and vote, polling was meaningless...but it appears more republicans, buoyed in defense of their beloved president, or somesuch, simply came out in larger numbers than the democrats did. Viola...GOP holds on to power.




Anyone wanna place yer bets?

1. Sounds plausible,
I put NOTHING past them.

2. Unsure
It does look as though the germs will be used to further the "National Security State" agenda within the framework of their phony "war on terror," but given how they need nuclear "justification" to advance the warring PNAC plot, I'm still guessing that, unless these psychotics are quickly brought to justice, the psyop they'll rely on will be to use nukes against us, killing several birds with one stone, so to speak: shut the country down, quell much of the opposition, detain skeptics, lefties, and anyone "unpatriotic," justify further military action, align the world with their man-made Armageddon, reduce the world population to pave the way for overt NWO.

3. I am more concerned about the whooping cough outbreak in the town where
we go to church. My kids are all caught up on their shots, thankfully.

4. So were my kids
but all of us got it when they were little. Be careful and check yourselves out if you start to get sick. We all got it while on a trip to Disney World years ago. It made for an interesting vacation. The bad part is we did not know what we had until we got home, sick as dogs, and after exposing a LOT of people. Everyone was caught up on their vaccinations.

29. Yeah, we've had that type of cough before but I dunno if it was
the real whooping cough or not. Hurts like the dickens though, whatever it is.

10. At this point...
I'm not so sure I'd fully trust a "vaccination." There's a long track record of finding really scary shit in many common child vaccinations. And given that much of the power structure in this country has proven it's untrustworthy and unreliable, while its PR media sells unreality as "reality" 24/7 in order to cover the atrocities on a daily basis...

18. Pharms can do pretty much anything with impugnity now, and they know it
BushCo has been a great boon to them. I wouldn't allow anyone to inject anything into my kid unless it was a last-resort situation. Keep 'em healthy with a sound diet and plenty of vitamins, and they should be able to weather anything. But let your little rug rats get fat on Twinkies and soda, while bathing them in anti-bacterial soaps and anti-bacterial wipes for the kitchen and anti-bacterial everything, and you're just asking for illness. Kids need germs! That is how they grow immunities and keep from getting sick their whole lives.

5. We had an outbreak, too, a few months ago
and I was really surprised. I thought whooping cough had gone the way of polio, etc.
Evidently some kids are not getting innoculated or the innoculations are bad (Big Pharma profits?) or something...
This should not be happening!
BTW - which part of the country are you in? We're in Southern Illinois and I'm wondering just how far flung this is.

6. A lot of my daughter's friends
have not vaccinated their children. Seems to be a trend. My grandchildren are vaccinated. We have whooping cough here, too.

11. Mostly it's a fear of the mercury, but sometimes people are doing it to
thumb their noses at big pharma.

15. you are right to be more concerned about pertusis
H5N1 still isn't that easily transmitted between fowl and humans, and it may take years if it ever does

16. Uh oh!
I just had this terrible sinking sensation that the "Bird Flu" will come after the Dubai Port deal goes to Halliburton, who will then control 6 (or who knows?) or 21 ports...and maybe more "terra" alerts..just before the November election.
Yikes.

17. Secret Booosh Plan...He'll Attack The Bird Flu By Invading...
The Canary Islands...

My hopes are those big bad shark attacks this summer and the killer bees will get me before the bird flu does.

24. No, I didn't say that, did I?
The manipulation and fear for their personal gain IS, though.

You need to read more closely. I never even mentioned Rove.

23. A duck was found in our local waters, uptown, with bird flu (H5N1)
Not too far from a famous water tower and tourist spot.(Mannheim, Germany) This was last week. I was told and I immediately went back to what I was doing.

No one is wearing a mask.
No one is running from people who sneeze.
People are out everyday going about their business.

Below are the measures that have been taken:


This weekend German authorities will start enforcing tough new measures in infected areas in five states, cats will have to remain indoors, dogs on a leash and access to poultry farms restricted to employees and veterinarians.

26. He should be much more concerned about the next Hurricane Season
since his disaster response performance was so pathetic last year.

28. It is a real disease. In birds.
My point is not that it isn't a real disease. Again, I never said that. I spoke of BushCo's manipulation of the facts in order to scare up a panic which will help them secure a murky win in 2006.

But I never said there was no bird flu.
