1.9 million United States Citizens are supposedly going to perish to the flu this year. At least that is what an article I scanned said yesterday. The government is setting up a task force to gain information into this new found threat and hopefully ward it off.
scare tactics anyone? Let's say you and your political cronies are in charge of a country who doesn't necessarily agree with how you are running their country. How do you take the heat off yourself for a small amount of time? Come up with some "new terror" that is facing the country.
It is already working too. I have encountered many people who are questioning each other on how not to get the flu. Or are confused on how one contracts the avian flu.
Way to go Republican Party, push the public towards a new fear. Maybe your ratings will go back up .
