2. Of course they are.
And people were twittering yesterday about nonsense involving Canada restricting all air traffic to Mexico, and DUers were making up shit about Donald Rumsfeld and secret government labs.

This is what happens every time there's an emergency. During Katrina it was looters shooting at helicopters and hordes of black men raping children at the Superdome.

None of it's worth believing. Wait until confirmation.

7. Exactly.
For all anyone knows, these Mexican email "reports" could just as easily be originating from a pizza-box-filled cubicle in Amsterdam.

4. I am more inclined to believe the "on the ground" comments
These are un edited (no govt screening) and come from a variety of citizens, and the stories are similar enough to make a picture more clear...

this has potential for some serious damage IMO

5. From the link above:
"The official number of deaths is 20, nevertheless, the true number of victims are more than 200. I understand that we must avoid to panic, but telling the truth it might be better now to prevent and avoid more deaths."

I'm tired of being lied to.

done...you know one of those planes up in the air sprayed this stuff on the population. Wow an epidemic and those drugs are now coming over the border like crazy..

Okay I know a conspiracy but who knows. It seem suspicious to me that all of a sudden a three legged virus pops up on May 13th...just my opinion..

10. Well one comment struck me as funny
some folks have gone into self quarantine and others treat this as a joke

I know there are people in the middle, those who try to keep informed

But I could not help but think of DU
