I can surely agree with your written expression, but only positively on one point – It is a conspiracy. And, these situations are no longer theories. YouTube this: Luke Rudkowski – ‘U.S. media doesn’t want truth’. Do the research.

Yes, I make it a point to read all comments on the blog. I like for the discussion to be largely among readers, since I’ve already had my say–and at some length.

However, when appropriate I will wade back in to the debate.

Thanks for reading!

How much money was spent on this? Did Obama not asked for a billion dollars, and asked companies to give as much time as the employees asked? How much did this cost to airlines, travel agencies? How much did this cost to the Mexican and world economy?
I think the news media need to do some real soul searching. Hype sells but it will eventually backfire.

I don’t know for sure how big this swine flu epidemic will get but at the moment, I think it’s all hype.
