...... A few sore throats caused by probably a vigorous strep C infection is thought to be Ebola .... In between an advert for McDonalds and the latest FOX news broadcast and an advert for the local clam shack and gun store.....
America (as a relatively rich country)....... Or maybe I mean by that the relative wealth of many American baby boomers whom have stripped the wealth out of the system in the past 35-50 years need to wake up and realise that the world does not owe them ANYtHiNg....... But needs some of the wealth they have taken ........

Coincides with the riots in Missouri. St. Louis not too far away, as the wind blows? The riot gas was tainted, or upset the balance of nature to allow the virus to propagate?
This concludes today's episode of Tin Foil Hat Speculation.

Im in Ohio, and there was an article the other day about an outbreak of hand/foot/mouth disease in the state. I'll see if I can find it again.

America and England aren't perfect, each have their ups and downs. But we're still oppressed under the same system, even if it looks separate.
The average American citizen may have smartphones and the internet, but most are living paycheck to paycheck. Joblessness and foreclosures everywhere.
I don't know how England's economy is doing but I can imagine lots over there struggle with their paychecks too.
(CNN) -- A respiratory virus is sending hundreds of children to hospitals in Missouri and possibly throughout the Midwest, officials say.
The virus causes symptoms like a cold, except worse, and is prompting up to 30 children a day to seek care at one Kansas City hospital, where about 15% of the youngsters were placed in intensive care, officials said.
In a sign of a possible regional outbreak, Colorado, Illinois and Ohio are reporting cases with symptoms similar to the same virus and are awaiting testing results, according to officials and CNN affiliates in those states.
In Kansas City, about 450 children were recently treated at Children's Mercy Hospital, and at least 60 of them received intensive hospitalization, spokesman Jake Jacobson said.
Perhaps they are trying to weaken everyone's immune systems or maybe this is a practice run for something bigger they have planned for the future...
But both environmentalists and industry officials also were poring over the report Friday, and some indicated that the battle over the regulations may not be over. Mark Denzler, chief operating officer of the Illinois Manufacturers' Association, said hopeful drillers were not happy with the requirement for more detailed disclosure of specific chemicals, which he said could threaten "trade secret protections."
Hydraulic fracturing uses a mixture of water, chemicals and sand to crack open rock formations thousands of feet underground to release trapped oil and gas. Opponents fear it will pollute and deplete groundwater or cause health problems, while the industry insists the method is safe and will cause the same economic boom seen in other states such as North Dakota. They warned that Illinois risked losing out on a bonanza as the months went by while the DNR crafted the rules. Miller, the DNR director, said he was "optimistic" the state could now meet a Nov. 15 deadline for the rules to be in place. He noted that the agency has hired 24 of 53 employees it needs to issue permits, inspect wells and perform other tasks associated with the anticipated influx of drilling activity. The Associated Press reported last month the agency had hired only four workers at that time.
