If the flu outbreak is a diversion or a scare tactic
and I've seen both expressed here, who's responsible for it? Do you think that Mexican health authorities and the CDC are in collusion with... well, who exactly?

I don't get positing such "theories". You'd have to believe that the Obama administration is profoundly evil, or that the repuke party is still in control or that some shadowy group is so powerful that they can control virtually all branches of the gov't and the Mexican gov't.

The media is, of course, playing this up, but that's to be expected. sensation is a huge part of the drive by media.

this may or may not be an outbreak that's a serious threat, but I doubt that it's some diversion cooked up by the gov't.

1. Why, it's a HUGH conspiracy involving public health officials in every nation around the world!

They're all out to get filthy rich off Americans, and influence whatever parochial business might be on their TV's.

4. I think that "theory" is a bizarre carry-over from the Bush years,

and reflects broken trust. Damn the waste of those 8 years.

6. You forgot to mention the agenda of some here who WANT to spread panic.
Maybe so that if it does develop into a pandemic they have the honor of telling those of us who survived see I told you so.

What bullshit.

8. Yup, and some here are taking the bait from the panic posters
when I see so much on this subject, and so much is not clear cut or contradictory, yet some want us to BELIEVE we are all going to die from this, I become very very concerned that we are being taken for a ride.

9. I think people are just complaining that it's overplayed.
Kind of like the pirate story from the other week that people thought was the most important thing ever.

Remember that one?

10. I agree that it's being overplayed, but people are going much further than that.

14. I have not seen those posts, but perhaps they were referring to the hype surrounding the flu,
as opposed to the flu itself.
