SWINE FLU DEATHS
MAY 2, 2009. In an AP article dated today, by Paul Haven, we find this:
?The two CDC doctors spoke during a tour of Mexico's Intelligence Unit for Health Emergencies, the operations center of the country's response to the disease?Hugo Lopez-Gatell Ramirez, deputy director general of epidemiology at the center, underscored the importance of getting fast and effective care. He said that among the 16 confirmed swine flu deaths in Mexico??
16 CONFIRMED SWINE FLU DEATHS IN MEXICO?
And from this ?core of the outbreak,? we have school closings in the South Pole and warnings about travel to Mars?
More people in Mexico die every day from exploding balloons.
But of course, who cares? The ?pandemic? is spreading and everyone needs to stop breathing and stay in their cellars. A man in an airport line coughs once and people stare at him as if he?s a serial killer.
It?s true that we?ve seen conflicting numbers of swine flu deaths in Mexico, but still. What?s going on here? Did ANYTHING happen in Mexico that justifies all the actions, globally, that are being taken?
It?s about the SOCIAL CONTRACT, folks. If everybody around you is scared, you have to be scared, too. Otherwise, you?re a clear and present danger ?to the community.? If you stand up at a PTA meeting at your local school and say the panic is completely unjustified, make sure you?re wearing a Kevlar vest and a helmet. The soccer moms with their vast overprotective attitude about their kiddies will shank you in the hallway or gun you down in the parking lot.
Doesn?t matter what?s been happening in Mexico. Doesn?t matter if the media are insane. The word is out: It?s time to be afraid. Fake it if you have to. Take five or ten vaccines, just in case. Who cares which ones? Buy a haz-mat suit and wear it to work. Every five minutes, from your desk, scream: THE SKY IS FALLING.
And oh, by the way, among these so-called 16 confirmed Swine Flu deaths in Mexico, how many were found to be harboring a whole virus, a new whole virus, a combo pig-bird-human virus, by actual test? I?m not talking about some irrelevant indirect test that turns up random genetic debris. I?m talking about the gold standard: direct virus isolation.
My bet is: ZERO.
But ignore that. The mandate is: BE AFRAID. Blab about the latest school closings at the water cooler. Put creases in your forehead. Make your eyes dart from side to side. Pretend you?re on the verge of bursting into tears. Join the crowd. The Fear Club wants YOU. In times like these, they need to recognize you as one of their own. Otherwise, you?re an outsider. You?re a threat. Interrupting their fear is a major social mistake. Oh dear.
