Oh look just 1 more reason to protect our border to the south. Hopefully this will wake up people in Washington.

I am not freaking out about this....yet. But I've been thinking lately how I live in a rural area (thank goodness) and wondering. With all the people outside of cities in the podunk areas and all the guns they typically own, how would they possibly be able to control everybody? They wouldn't that's the answer. Unless they had a pandemic then it would spread to everyone with no problem. And if the disease is in the vaccine, each little town will administer it and if you don't take it you will be much easier to round up. Hence the "camps". So if this is the real deal, I just hope it isn't too painful. Either way, they can't touch me only the bag of meat I currently reside in.
The 21 polo ponies that died Sunday in Wellington were all injected before the game with a government-banned vitamin supplement called Biodyl -- and team members believe a tainted dose caused their deaths, the team's captain said.

As we now know, it was a pure example of a useless vaccine peddled by inside interests.
For both cases, infection with H5N1 avian influenza was confirmed by the Egyptian Central Public Health Laboratory and subsequently confirmed by the U.S. Naval Medical Research Unit No. 3 (NAMRU-3). Of the 66 cases confirmed to date in Egypt, 23 have been fatal.

My parents (in their mid 50's) came back from Cancun on April 11th (with the 'sniffles'). By April 13th, they had a full-blown 'flu' - seriously sick.
I talked to them this morning (after reading the CBC article) and they said they are finaly starting to feel better (appitite is back, no more nausia) - 1.5 weeks since they got sick.
It's weird that it can kill healthy adults (25-44) but kids and older adults only get sick.
Note: the CBC article I read said that it only affected people over the last week - I'm calling BS.
