The Reformer's Firebrand

*-{The New Canadian Colonist's Advocate }-* A commentary of fiery reformist sentiment from the spirit of it's 210 year old Canadian ghost publisher patron. This will be a home to the new wave of anti-partisan advocacy for defeating Canada's second "family compact" and reinstallation of responsible governance in this 21st century new Canadian democratic dominion.

Don't Worry About Bird Flu

Just in time for the cold and flu season we have the latest statist government scare ( avian flu) designed to whip us into a frenzie and render up more of our freedoms and revenues to pointless ( and dangerous) drug company vaccines. The fable of henny penny and the sky is falling seems apropos here....between nebulous terror threats that have taken our chater rights and hyperbolized pandemics that create enforced quarantines of whole populations we can see the globalist authoritarians gearing up for a banner year of incremental bureaucratic fascism in the free western democracies.

Let's explore some of the contrast between the globalist media spin and the realities of this flu scare:

MSM:
"Economists say the bird flu sweeping through Asian poultry flocks has the potential to evolve into one of history's great human tragedies, speeding across the plant, killing many Canadians and bringing the economy almost to a halt."

Reality:
"As of now, so far as we know, on Planet Earth about 60 people out of 6 billion have died of bird flu. All were involved in handling sick birds. There is, as of now, no recorded case of bird flu being transmitted from one human to another – something that is necessary before even an epidemic, much less a pandemic, could occur"

MSM:
"A major outbreak would lead governments everywhere to shut down their borders, or, in effect, ground airplanes, because people would not want to travel, and that would be the end of the major trade in goods and services, at least for some period of time," Cooper said. "And, given our global supply chains, there would develop shortages in many, many goods, many products, across the world very quickly." It would be hard to maintain food supplies "even across provincial lines, let alone across international lines," she added. "

Reality:
"So, before you let politicians, the media, the pharmaceutical companies and the grant hogs at the National Institutes of Health scare you with stories about being wiped out by a bird-flu pandemic, consider the following: If you are more than 50 years old, you've already lived through two pandemics of flu and probably didn't even know it. "

From my perspective as a freedom advocate and a determined enemy of the new globaist order that is turning our once free societies intopopulation controlled police states, A pandemic seems like the perfect scare to get us used to the government restricting our movements and having them poison us with mass innoculations (independent and FDA studies have found cancer agents, mercury and other dangerous virus incommercial flu vaccines). Bear in mind also that the vaccine industry is a projected $10 billion per year poorly regulated enterprise which is attracting investment from the world bank and also that the CDC has pattent franchise on the sale of many vaccines. Again, when a scare arises always look who stands to profit from your fear. Also ask yourself WHO it is that plays with the type of weapons grade virus that could get loose and cause a real pandemic.

If this flu does develop ( and that would be highly unlikely without help from science) there will be no effective vaccine anyway. want to stay healthy? ....wash your hands, take selenium and vitamin C to kick your immune system into high gear and stay away from public places with a lot of sneezing people ;-) We don't need a police enforced quarrantine and travel restrictions and other Orwellian machinations of the mega state to save us from something that can't be stopped with government fear mongering and bureaucratic militancy

Is it like slow news reporting time or something? They always seem to drum up something to terrorize people with because everday events and positive living doesn't appeal to most media pundits.

I see there is a unanimous consensus where distrust of corporate medicine, drugs and government is concerned. Very good! A jaundiced distrust of both corporate power and political power is very healthy and will get you through the flu and keep you free. ;-)

Do as the Japanese do in flu season:
Wear a mask when you go out in public.

Cough a lot and I guarantee you'll have a lot of room to shop at Christmas.

People will avoid you "like the plague"

But then, I was plague immunized by the Navy (types one and two).

hehe.
