Not to downplay the potential threat of this "Swine Flu" or anything, but doesn't it seem like the panic level is getting a bit out of hand? I'm
sure someone else has done threads on this but I've been sitting back and watching from an observer's perspective, so I'm not totally immersed in
The mainstream news in general is blowing it way out of proportion (can we agree on this?). But the facts show that we really shouldn't be
overreacting just yet. I mean, just yesterday CNN ran a story about how regular flu kills something like 10,000 people in the US alone each year (a
surprising counter to their CONSTANT coverage of swine flu). So far we have one death from Swine Flu in the US, and it was a 22-month old infant who
was actually a Mexican citizen. Most of the people I've been talking to (central NY state), are essentially agreeing that it's just way overblown at
You might say "BUT THERE'S NO VACCINE!!! GET YOUR GUNS AND STOCK UP ON FOOD!" So what? Vaccines are bullsh*t anyway (which I'm sure you all know).
The best way to avoid the flu is wash your hands frequently, don't share food/drinks with people, stay healthy, eat right, etc. etc. Have some
I think the WHO "threat level" is being purposely jacked up in order to cause panic. And now we come here to ATS to see that they too are jumping on
the "end of the f*cking world" bandwagon with their bigass flashing red banner that's shoving the WHO's message right in your face. Has ATS been
compromised? I mean, they're not making any kind of money off of the "fear factor," so the only thing that makes sense to me is that they're
either completely ignorant and have been sucked in or that they are being compromised by the PTB. Either one is possible.
See, they (PTB) know the general public responds to fear of, well, anything. And they know the "truthers" have been waiting for the pandemic for a
long time. So they put out some minor new flu strain and shove the threat in your face all day via every means possible to get you to panic and do
something stupid, then they can do the whole lockdown/forced vaccinations/martial law thing if they see fit. The tactics only work if they get the
response they're looking for. Without that, it's nothing. And so far we're giving it to them. I'm sort of amazed that ATS has fallen into the trap
as well with their red fear banner all over the damn place.
That is not to say that something serious may yet be coming, but really, wait until it ACTUALLY gets to that point before you start flipping out about
it. Otherwise the ones you despise so much will look at you and say "too easy." Carte blanche.
Anyways, we'll see how it unfolds. Keep it real.
