The Dimwit's Thought on Swine Flu

Here's the deal... every 2-3 years, some new disease is going to sweep the world and kill 50 million people... ebola, ecoli, SARS, avian flu, and now swine flu. Personally, the Dimwit thinks the media is creating this uproar. First by reporting on it every 20 minutes, then by badgering the CDC and WHO every 15 minutes for an update on the situation.

Yes, in undeveloped countries that have a huge lack of sanitation and medical services, this could be very bad. And the Dimwit is not in any way trying to diminish the impact it will have there. However, we all need to look back at these previous "pandemics" to realize that in time, humans will adapt to this virus, build a resistance and move forward. That's how we operate. It's already been proven that with the proper medication, the Swine Flu is EASILY beatable. So, in that light, the Dimwit will not be walking around with a mask on. If he gets sick, he will go see a doctor. And that will be the end of it... so CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, Headline News, and FOX... you can all just shut up already and stop trying to freak everyone out!

The Dimwit will now step down from his soap box.
