A Flu Pandemic Is In Our Future.
Time to Read ´The Stand.´

Weekly Standard, by Alice B. Lloyd

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/11/2018 4:56:09 AM

The flu is coming—and eventually, another pandemic. Consensus says, we’re not prepared. But don’t take it from me. There have been warnings. This doomy New York Times op-ed, for example, points out that the bugs that strike seasonally are starting to outstrip our power to inoculate against them—while our worldwide connectedness and global dependence on life-saving drugs manufactured in India and China only speed up an inevitable flu pandemic’s path of destruction. And a whole heap of bad news from Australia, where the seasonal flu hits months sooner, suggests an especially merciless strain is headed our way. And then the fact that

Where I work, 30% or so of the staff is out sick, either themselves or their children. Most are out a week, before coming back.
Trying to keep my distance from everyone at work!

I have read "The Stand", the extended director´s/author´s cut. It is a very long read but an excellent book. I don´t think any scientists are cooking up some monster strain in a lab, but as noted, international travel and unchecked immigration from less-than-hygienic countries will bring us diseases that we thought were eradicated, along with weird strains of flu.

An excellent book? Only if you enjoy a character getting raped. Nothing the liberal King writes contributes to society. He hates Christians and conservatives and it reflects in his writings.

Read Outbreak instead.

I was sick 3 weeks with the flu this season. This flu is very different, it hit every part of my body even my teeth ached. I feel for anyone with this flu. My Doctor told me this flu has come back on most of his patients.

Coincidentally, #1, the CDC has stated that the latest vaccine is 30% effective, which means that your work situation is far from over.

My personal opinion is that all of the needless vaccine that is pushed on people year after year is destroying their immune systems. I haven´t had a flu shot in many years and never get it despite flying and working in other cities. Stay active and strong and stay away from the government drug pushers.

Natures way of culling the herd from time to time. I suspect that the first to go will be those who ran to their doctor for a dose of this or that every time they had a runny nose. Not much immunity to anything.

Whatever you do, everyone PANIC! Thats the gist of all these gloom and doom articles that never seem to come to pass.
I found the phrase in the article that sums up the whole purpose of it and stopped reading. FTA: "Pouring billions of federal dollars into universal flu vaccine research, of the sort that could theoretically preempt a pandemic, won’t hurt."
We are being duped again.

I had the flu shot, and then the H3N2. Lasted for three weeks. It was like nothing I´ve ever had.

FYI: my doctor suggested I up my vitamin D to avoid flu in the future.

My education pushed me into a short but intense study of infectious disease. This was back just after the Hanta virus scare in 1993 around the 4 corners area of New Mexico and Arizona. I was New Mexico vector control officer (rats, mice, mosquitoes, etc). This deadly disease seems to spring up out of the desert for no apparent reason about every 50 years or so and has been doing so since the early 1800´s. Anyway, during this course, I learned about all sorts of infectious diseases from a prevention officer´s perspective. Throughout human history, diseases like malaria, cholera, diphtheria, small pox ravaged humans and animals. My big question that impressed the very well educated epidemiologists running the course was, "If these diseases have been around basically forever, why didn´t they wipe out humans before we discovered the various inoculations?"

This is a big question. The main reason, they suspect, is population density. One of the biggest die-offs occurred in the Mississippi Valley native America populations after the Spanish infections of the 1500´s. And it killed just about everyone from small pox and other diseases. Some survived, though not many. Why? Even when most everyone was dead, the number of survivor dwindles from other causes- starvation, predation, wars, etc. So it occurred to me, if there ever is an outbreak, the cities will be hit the hardest- due to high population density. But, deadly diseases are self extinguishing- they almost immediately reduce the population density and that stops them. After that, it is humans who do the rest of the damage (like in the Stand). For the disease, though- If most all the hosts are dead, there is no one left to infect. But, scientists still really do not have much of a clue how all that works.

Interesting #11. I used to get bad colds 2-3 times a year. I started faithfully taking daily Vitamin D about 3+ years ago because my D was low and my doctor pushed and pushed me to do it. A side benefit may be I don´t get colds anymore. I pointed this out to my doctor at my last annual. He didn´t seem to buy my analysis, but your post makes me think there is veracity to it. Hope it works for flu. BTW, I´m not a vitamin nut...D is the only Vitamin I take.

I disagree that The Stand is anti-Christian. It has a very strong message for a piece of mainstream fiction. The Mother Abigail character is wonderful and inspiring. I particularly love one of the scenes where she is talking about God, and another of the main characters, a very good man who does not happen to be religious, tells her (he cannot speak, so he writes the words), that he does not believe in God. She laughs and tells him, “Nick, that don’t matter! He believes in _you_.” It’s one of my favorite moments in both the book and the TV movie (which I recommend - Gary Sinise is particularly excellent in it).

Many dittos, #12!

Back in the 80s i came across a great book by Hans Zinsser, "Rats, Lice and History". It sparked an interest in me, as a student of ancient history, concerning the factors leading to the decline and fall (thanks Gibbon) of great civilizations.

Later on in my graduate studies i explored the impact of plague on the Emperor Justinian´s effort to restore the Roman Empire (by now split between the Eastern Byzantium and the Western, Rome) in the 6th century.

Early successes were thwarted and reversed when (probably) bubonic plague (bacterial, not viral) pandemic spread throughout the Ancient world.

Some people believe that the 1920 flu pandemic was the main reason WWI came to an end.

Good suggestions on throwing away toothbrushes and vitamin D. Here´s another idea:
I always wear gloves when pumping gas, and try to remember when in the grocery store. Now i think i´ll carry a supply of disposable gloves, now that i consider how yucky germs could get onto my leather gloves or mittens and THEN onto my steering wheel, etc

Oh, and i just heard that saline solution bags are in short supply, essential for administering fluids and meds in ERs and hospitals. Never knew this, but they´re made in Puerto Rico and somewhere in Texas.
Dehydration is a killer.

Schumer listened to the resistance — and lost badly

Chuck Schumer started a government shutdown he couldn’t finish. The New York Democrat, among the shrewdest operators in national politics, stumbled badly because he succumbed to the siren song of the anti-Trump Resistance. He believed any charge could be made to stick to President Trump, no matter how implausible, and chose the dictates of an inflamed Democratic base over common sense. His embarrassing climbdown after a short, mostly weekend shutdown shows the limits of the Resistance. Yes, an anti-Trump midterm wave appears to be building and Democratic activists — marching in the streets by the thousands and badgering Republicans at town-hall meetings

Hours after Houthi militants in Yemen launched a new missile at Saudi Arabia on December 19, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, took her blue seat at the horseshoe-shaped table of the Security Council. “Thankfully,” she said, “the missile was intercepted before it could hit its intended target,” which apparently was a palace in Riyadh, the Saudi capital. “But the very fact of this attack is a flashing red siren for this council.” Backed by Iran, Haley said, the Houthis have fired missiles at civilians before. “Unless we act,” she warned, the latest one “won’t be the

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it.

Woody Allen won an Academy Award, the fourth of his career, just six years ago for writing Midnight in Paris. He was nominated again two years later for Blue Jasmine, a film that won Cate Blanchett a Best Actress Oscar. The last year that Allen didn’t release a movie in theaters that he wrote and directed was 1981. Despite the controversy that has dogged him since the early 1990s—when he was revealed to be having an affair with his girlfriend’s daughter and was subsequently accused of molesting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow—Allen has continued to make movies with the same

And then there are the sides within the sides, always ready for more gnashing of teeth, mutual hostility, and endless contempt. Talk about the cliché "can´t stand prosperity" — that´s what we have.

Every day it is becoming clearer that CNN, the once proud ratings giant and unquestioned cable network news leader, has abandoned objective journalism to cultivate obsessive hatred for President Donald Trump. It has “jumped the shark,” meaning that a once distinguished broadcaster has become absurd. The original definition referred to the fifth season premiere episode of the hit TV show Happy Days, in which the main character, Fonzie, literally jumped over a shark while water skiing with his signature leather jacket. It is also a perfect reference to a broadcast network like CNN that has diminished greatly in quality and

The partial shutdown of the U.S. government that started Saturday is a testament to the inability of our two major political parties to do anything but kowtow to their respective bases, and their failure to sit down together to work out a deal. Isn´t it great? Far from being an embarrassment, these shutdowns show regular Americans, wielding only the power to vote in national elections every two years, are kings and queens of the realm.

It has been nearly a month since Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the most sweeping overhaul of the tax code since the 1980s. Of the 185-page bill’s many provisions, perhaps the most consequential is a reduction in the federal corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. Among the tax bill’s leading opponents was Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who was scathing in her denunciation of what she called the “GOP Tax Scam.” Shortly before the final vote, she delivered a blistering speech on the Senate floor. “Today is

You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair.
