Swine/Mexico flu?

I have to wonder any time the media focuses on one thing and all we hear about over and over the same thing just what are "they" (mainstream media, government, etc.) are hiding from us? What is going on in Congress? What is happening in Iraq and Afghanistan? What other atrocities are being perpetrated under the cover of this hysterical hype about the swine flu (or Mexico flu - whatever)? You see, they have done this before. The O.J. trial, Scott Peterson, 9/11, over and over the media purposely directs our attention to some crisis so that we get all worked up about it and don't keep our eyes on what else is going on.

Just like the hype about the 165 million dollar bonuses that were the outrage of the media and Congress while very quietly the Fed put one trillion dollars in circulation. Thus this made our dollar even weaker than it was. There was not one word about this on television, in the newspapers, on the radio, or in magazines. No, we were directed to think about and rage about the bonuses being paid to the bank executives.

Just as a comparison and reality check here, did you know that 39,000 people die a year from just "ordinary" flu? Did you know that 125 people are killed EVERY DAY in automobile accidents? Do we fuss about any of this? Do we hear these statistics and wring our hands and say "what are we going to do?" or "somebody (read, government) must do something to protect the public!"? No, we don't. There are thousands who die at the hands of their doctors, for heaven's sakes! Do we stress about this? No.

I am literally deleting every email that shouts at me about the dangers and the pandemic proportions of this flu and I refuse to read any articles about it. First of all, God's Word tells me that "no plague or calamity will come near my dwelling" and further, that "a thousand may fall at my right hand and 10,000 at my side, but NO EVIL WILL BEFALL ME!" I choose NOT to live in fear and thus do not choose to listen to the fear-mongers.

I will be researching all that Congress passes in these days of the flu hysteria; reading foreign newspapers to see what our media doesn't want us to know that has happened and you can be sure, we are not being told the important stuff.
