About a month or two ago, before work saw a thing on the news that seemed kinda odd...
the prez was talking about bird flu vaccine funding stuff...with all the stuff going on right now, how often have they ever really 'prepared' for anything- let alone publicly?
same news show showed 'sattellite images of bird flocks that seemed to be flying up northeastern asia across Bering Strait down along alaska/canada- looked like total bullshit to me, in that same report they showed CDC projections of birdflu epidemic spreading across entire country in 90 days- but oddly the CDC stuff started on the east coast, not west where the satelites showed birds heading.
Same day there was a thing in the newspaper at work/lunch was telling the guys how odd the birdthing seemed to me, and about that Claude whatever that got arrested for stealing crap from wallmart- I said then that it sounded to me like he pissed off someone and got setup/fixed...this guy was a bigtime advisor- not a typical petty theft kinda guy...that night I went home to look up old Claude, lo and behold first link was some blurb about CDC/infectious disease stockpile crap...I couldnt sleep that night. Just keep talking about mustangs and stuff...forget it...
well today the prez released more stuff about the birdflu planning- even how they will be able to print money overseas...oops- that was the only real thing stated except for possibly 'drive thru' diagnostics setups, and that estimated 90 million sick, 2 million dead, internet swamped from folks working at home could be expected- rest of the world would fare far worse.
OOOOKAY...the worlds in a mess, we are mired down in poor country wars over oil that have basically eroded most of the faith people have in the government and their justification for being there under false pretenses, we owe China more than our greatgreatgreat grandkids can ever repay(china financing most of our debt), we got major problems with most muslim nations unofficially wanting us all to die, our government appears to be as corrupt as its ever been, and being steered by oil barons (no metering of oil out of Iraq by tankers...how much/who pays/gets paid???noone seems to know), now the handy dandy birdflu thing pops up that 'possibly' 'might' 'jump' to humans is available...God I hope I'm just f'd in the head thinking about this crap- and I pray in 6 months someone will remind me but I tell you what, I got a really bad feeling this is gonna be a bad year. if that pandemic 'materializes' why would one of the biggest concerns be printing money overseas? and will the presses be metered any better than the pumps in Iraq? who would even know, if the internet starts crumbling...far too much communication is dependent on that.
We would be in bad shape, but overpopulated areas that happen to have lots of oil and finance a lot of our debt would have populations dwindle lower than ever...wonder who would 'help' them recover- possibly the only nation that ever does?
Am I nuts or does some of this stuff seem a littly fishy to others too...that Claude whoever guy getting arrested at wallmart after resigning from extremely high level post that worked along with CDC bioterror stuff just really gives me the creeps.
nah, I'm just nuts... got almost 2800 miles on the mustang now, tore up a few onramps today...what bird flu?
