the “swine flu”, “Mexican flu” or whatever they call it today, is sure to be a ………non event! Thats right, although I am a prepper, this is not the end of the world type thing. I hear all the whoopededoo about masks, surgical garb, decontamination washes, tyvek suits, stashes of antibiotics and flu vaccenes, etc,etc,etc.
fact is, first- there is NO vaccene for this version of the flu! it is always created AFTER the fact of widespread outbreaks! secondly- all the garb in the local hospital won’t seriously protect you(short of level 5 quarentine pressurized suits)since it’s an airborne virus, and will also live on objects, surfaces and liquids.
Sound pretty scary? Well don’t sweat too much- the true estimates about the leathality of this flu virus is possibly point 08%. And thats untreated and alowed to run it’s course. With modern healthcare I would think that should be more like point 008, or 8 deaths per 100,000!Look at it this way- 98.7% survival rate! Soundslike real good odds to me, with most of the .08 death rate from pnuemonia. Which by the way is NORMAL for everyday flu! At any one flu season 5%-20% of the US population has the flu and 30,000-35,000 people die from “the flue”. very young and very old are 99% of the fatalities(at least in this country)The best course of action if it comes to your area(the flu), is to STAY HOME! At least till it’s no longer a threat. What happens if you DO get it? Again, STAY HOME-stay away from the little tikes and grampa&grandma, the flue lasts a week to ten days, yer gonna feel really bad for six or seven days, REALLY BAD. cold_guyTake aspirin, drink fluids(without caffien), get some rest- read a book.but then yer gonna start gettin better but still STAY HOME! You will still be contagious for twelve to fifteen days.Just because YOU have immunity now STAY HOME, don’t spread it any further. These things come and go, and as far as the last 3 flu pandemics, each instance has seen less fatalities, the last in the ’70’s saw less than 10.000 dead worldwide. The way I figure, Ya either get it or ya don’t, ya either die or ya don’t, chances are ya’ll will survive, with or without preparing- As of this point in time, there are a LOT more important things to worry about than a bad cold. Keep in mind just who is running our country(into the ground)right now! Do not let yourself be distracted from prepping for you and yours! Stock up on strage type foods, get that garden goin’ do a little target practice, get out and greet the spring- They say fresh air is the best thing for ya to stay healthy! by the way- only 7 of the over 100 deaths in mexico tested positive for the flu virus- relax,chill out, nobody lives forever, it’s probable that this “epidemic” is just a diversion from REAL NEWS. go here if ya doubt me- http://www.bloggernews.net/120694 Oh yeah, be observant of yer surroundings,keep yer gun loaded and at hand and keep yer powder dry!













Aliens and Politicians

The year is 1947ufo_11

Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years
ago, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with
five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside
Roswell, New Mexico . This is a well known incident that many say has
long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and other federal agencies
and organizations.

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April 1948,
nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:

Albert A. Gore, Jr.
Hillary Rodham
John F. Kerry
William J. Clinton
Howard Dean
Nancy Pelosi
Dianne Feinstein
Charles E. Schumer
Barbara Boxer

See what happens when aliens breed with sheep and jackasses?
I certainly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things
for you. It did for me._oh_god_i_am_so_totally_wasted

No wonder they support the bill to help illegal aliens!

Now You Know.
thanx kev

Sharing Peanuts!!!

A tour bus driverbus is driving with a bus load of seniors down a highway when he is tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady.
She offers him a handful of peanuts, which he gratefully munches up.
After about 15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of peanuts.
She repeats this gesture about five more times.
When she is about to hand him another batch again he asks the little old lady, ‘Why don’t you eat the peanuts yourself?
We can’t chew them because we’ve no teeth,’ she replied.
The puzzled driver asks, ‘Why do you buy them, then?’
The old lady replied, ‘We just love the chocolate around them.’

It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the

honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.

    Lost Wallet

    A guy traveling through Mexico on vacation lost his wallet

    and all his identification. Cutting his trip short, he attempts to make

    his way home but is stopped by the U.S. Customs Agent at the border.

    “May I see your identification, please?”
    asks the agent.

    “I’m sorry, but I lost my wallet,”
    replies the guy.

    “Sure buddy, I hear that every day. No ID, no
    entry,” says the agent.

    “But I can prove I’m an American!” he
    exclaims. “I have a picture of Ronald Reagan tattooed

    on one butt cheek and George Bush on the other.”

    “This I’ve gotta see,” replies the agent.

    With that, the guy drops his pants and shows the agent.

    “By golly, you’re right!” exclaims the
    agent. “Have a safe trip back to Chicago.”

    “Thanks!” he says. “But how did you
    know I was from Chicago?”

    The agent replies, “I recognized Barack Obama in
    the middle.”
