Well, this should end Republican Senator Susan Collins' career



From her website (hurry, before she pulls it):

"After meeting with Mr. Obama, Sen. Collins expressed concern about a number of spending provisions, including $780 million for pandemic-flu preparedness. "I have no doubt that the president is willing to negotiate in good faith, that he wants to have a bipartisan bill," Sen. Collins said."

I guess she's in the Bobby Jindahl we don't need to monitor volcanoes or prepare for a pandemic school. Or hell, we don't need to worry about a big ol' hurricanes either.

PEOPLE OF AMERICA - VOTE THE INCOMPETENTS AND SHORT-SIGHTED OUT. REPLACE THEM WITH PEOPLE WITH BRAINS. YOU WERE WARNED.

Look over HERE, not over THERE!!

HERE is swine flu
THERE is Bushco prosecutions, failing economy, etc.

Just another case of "fear and crisis" being used to herd sheep by keeping them distracted.

Not likely Keith. She is a Republican. They like their candidates to be as stupid as the people who vote Republican.

This is nothing more then seasonal allergies

When I was little we called it ‘Hay fever’

Plus; the man that invented the Internet said that global-warming was gonna destroy us all way before your everyday runny nose does.

we're 6 billion on a planet that can only naturally sustain 1 billion. this flu, and many more, are inevitable.

and anyway, a flu is a great diet. you lose 5-10lbs while getting a hellacious ab crunch workout.

She states, "What does that [pandemic flu preparedness] have to do with an economic stimulus package?"

Kieth, she is dead on.

And the sad part is that you used to be more of an independent thinker.

Are you aware of a wave of suspicious deaths surrounding famous biologists in the last few years? Check for yourself:

Folks, this is not one or two, it's a bunch of scientists who were working on bio-weapons and got killed in a short period of time. It's on record for all of you to see, so don't deny it.

Hundreds of times more people will die in car accidents today than they will of the Greasy Mexican Flu. THE SKY IS FALLING THE SKY IS FALLING! Yawn. Next sensational news story with no real substance please......

I think it's a legitimate question - how does flu preparedness stimulate the economy?

Also, $700M is a lot of money. Nobody in the US has died from this flu without the $700M having been spent.

I'm not saying we shouldn't be prepared for viral outbreaks and potential pandemics. But you can't spend the whole budget on flu preparation - where do we draw the line?

She obviously didn't get the memo about spring-time launching of the swine flu.

Her career is indeed over. She's clearly an outsider.

you guys are really, really good at predicting the current economic doom, and presaging the inevitable real estate crash well before anyone else---but stick to what you know

Yeah, Right.
And the person who claimed "subprime is contained" will also lose their job.
And the person who claimed "there are WMDs in Iraq" will also lose their job.

All this accountability!
Watch out!
Heads are gonna roll now!

So what other videos pop up when you type in "pandemic" on You Tube?.

CDC needs to have its entire remaining funding stripped, so they won't have the money to fan hysteria.

$780 million... to do what, exactly? Here's a thought:

Quarantine and Kill.
A) the government quarantines you
B) the government KILLS YOU.

And you've been conditioned for it...

I Am Legend (2007)
Pandemic (made for tv movie) (2007)

Yep, let's close those borders around California, Ohio, and New York State. We should also build a tall wall around the homes of all those prep school kids who went on Spring Vacation overseas. Those are the vectors of "pandemic" most threatening to us in the US.

Mike H. said...

Actually, she is totally right. You don't put a reserve in the budget or stimulus package to deal with a full on pandemic flu. Just like you don't put in a 1 billion earmark for earthquake response. That's why we declare a state of emergency. There is a general fund for disasters and that's what should be used. Otherwise you are double counting and double budgeting.

The fact that she is being attacked for this is frankly, ridiculous.
