    151 Million Americans come down with the Avian Bird Flu? Holy Fuck!

    One only hopes that W can do a better job with this than a hurricane. Personally I have great doubts of that.

    Avian Bird Flu is a spooky flu, it's overhyped and the amount of attention paid to it is idiotic, at best.

    I wish people would shut up about it already.

    Well, I suppose if we die, we die. I mean the Great Influenza back after WWI was a killer, who knows, nature has a way of cycling the human flesh.

    So do humans. It still confuses me how some people fear for their live's constantly. There's so many things that can kill you, your time is better spent concerned about how you want to live, instead of how you want to die.

    But yeah, I'm thankful for the people who invent vaccines and such.

    She is an airhead, but it explains some basic facts well, and I am too lazy to type.

    KFC isn't losing that much business either.

    Also we are living in a drug system. A system that doesn't strengthen the immune system but rather allows sugar pills to do the work. Its only natural a virus would cull the masses. it happened once, it will happen again.

    This Avian Flu garbage is just a bunch of FUD fed to us to keep the populace in check. "We're the gubmint, we'll protect you from everything! Just give us all your rights and money!"

    Pure bullshit!

    I am not so sure. At least the CDC admits that the Bird Flu is not yet a problem because it has yet to mutate. That said, the fact that it can spread so easily and may mutate is worth considering.
