Annoyed, I didn't think you would be the "what if-ing", "what might have happened", "its for the childern", "We are here for you", fear mongering government, civil services, police and fire kind of fellow?
People that ask what if it were you or your loved one are people who know in their heart they are wrong, who are desperately trying to save face.
Well don't worry I don't want your face lost.
I just want people to think about the numbers, that they just do not balance out. That they are more than likely just being milked. And that we should be doing more in other arias, with bigger threats. Such as college students and alcohol poising, youth suicide, so forth and so on. WNV could be an epidemic but it is not it is a pandemic. If it even exists at all, which some doubt. Google that!
This mundane conundrum, the bull shit has been being shoved down our throats now for at least 45 to 50 years. It is getting to be very much "old news". A tool for government "fear mongering" for their greed, for their profit. A tool that I do believe is doing more harm than good.

No, no...the sky IS NOT falling and we will NOT "all die" as you bleat.
So you can't make the mosquitoes stronger????? So let people F'ing DIE to prove your point???? You're insane. How about if you knew it was you or your wife or son or daughter who would next get the disease???? Would you be happy to give them this sickness in the name of the environment?????
Stop the railroad thinking and use your brain.....then I won't have to post.
It is fine if you keep posting, I always enjoy what you post to some degree.
This one does seem as if you fail to understand my view at all.
Where are you coming up with this "we are all going to die to prove my point rubbish"? You are sounding like a authoritarian county employee on a mission to kill something.

Sorry about the double posts, I moved my router further away from my computer. I am hopping that will help with its blanking out and coming back on re-posted.

For the first time in years I had mason spiders, box elder beetles, lady bugs, squash beetles and many other insects in my yard this year. Which was very pleasing. I attribute those
successes to concerned protesters who have curtailed the government from spraying my house and yard.
It is my opinion that the BCMVCD, the Department of Health, the Board of Supervisors are doing great harm to communities in our county along with the harming of the people living in it.
The media sweep stating the number of Mosquito bites should also contain the number of cases of lung disorders. Dr Lundberg of the Health Department needs to unbiasedly simultaneously report those cases as well. One of my dear Durham friends just died of COPD last week without mention of WNV.

It is my opinion that the toxic deadly chemicals being used by the BCMVCD could have, more than likely and quite easily, significantly contributed to her demise. Possibly there are many more comparable deaths?
Please post the number of deaths from lung disorders.
I do not want my residence, my family, sprayed or fogged with Monsanto's or any other chemical companies chemicals.
Let them go continue to make their profits spraying Africa with DDT as is being done. That starving uncivilized population needs the controlling effect.

Thanks Ruthie, I did read about half of Silent spring in the late sixties and tried reading more of it later on, but it was dry reading and repetitious of the same crimes being committed over and over again all across America. I do respect it as well as you for recommending it, of course it was the first of its kind and remains a classic today. Becoming more true each passing year. But towards the end of the 70's PHONEOXY (SP ?) herbicides were more strictly monitored and plant life, our environment began to regrow again in a more normal fashion. But the effects of it can still be seen today practically everywhere. IT WAS A TERRIBLE THING, THAT HERBICIDE! I would put it in a category as bad as or worse than Agent Orange. Right here in our own back yards. And it could very well have been Agent Orange only named differently. Its (still available equivalent) is "Weed be Gone" both a close relative to 24D, 245T, MCPA, Propenel and Paraquat. All of which are chlorinated hydrocarbons.
The other book you recommended,'The constant Gardener' I have not heard of, but if it is anything like 'Silent Spring' I would be interested in it.
To return your favor I would like to strongly recommend a book, a small book, titled "The One Straw Revolution" By Foocoroka (SP ?)
Best of luck to you.
Now lets get back to the BCMVCD poisoning us for profit. Killing a foundational building block of our food chain, my friend the Mosquito.

How very republican of you; "all going to die" indeed? Did you make that up or borrow it from one of your heros such as rush or ryan?

I point out when it's YOU who will be a victim then it's NOT ok, but when it's a vague "someone else" then it IS OK.

What all short sighted people such as yourself seem blind to is we're talking about people dying....not anonymous strangers but our neighbors, sons, daughters....all whom you're willing to sarifice (AND IT HAS BEEN PROVEN PEOPLE DIE FROM THIS DISEASE)all over unproven damage to the enviroment (which heals itself) and all because YOU WANT TO MAKE A POINT....(poor performance review here).

Do you REALLY feel allowing people to die because it MIGHT have an effect on the enviroment is a correct approach? Or would it be smarter to first control the disease (the best we can) and then worry about the environment?

The way I see it is people like yourself, having little true emotional connection with people can distance themselves from the deaths. But (what the heck) the enviroment is "all around us" and that's a much scarier proposition than having some anonymous person die (and so "to hell with them"). Am I right?

the guy is far from being conservative

He thinks all bars should be closed
A curfew after dark for everyone
And dope should be legal

That is liberal thinking

Computers are great.
You know who you are, those of you who love to be advocates of the devil.
My opinion is that the people involved with today's methods of stopping West Nile Virus are doing more harm than good.
It gives me great pleasure to say that, you most likely do it for your own greed and personal benefit. Maybe just for your own ego.

Again very loud and clear, "My opinion" is that fighting WNV is doing MORE HARM than GOOD!

DDT caused Polio, that is my "OPINION".
DDT also does more harm than good.
DEET does more harm than good, that also is my opinion.
Please advocate otherwise to your hearts content.

No go back and read where I wrote that our grass roots protesters stopped the spraying here in our town three years ago and I now have finally gotten my mason spiders, along with other Mosquito eaters back.
Now consider this re-baiting my hook in hopes of something other than a sucker. Although I do thank you for the bite.

Once again I am saying that you have not seen the effects of WNV or Dengue

And if you had you would be begging them to spray

I would rather see percentages, percentages relative to other pandemics.
WNV is still in my opinion government fear mongering for profit.

Effects from a hoax can't be seen. If you think you seen some it was probably something else.

As I told you before I saw a professional soccer team wiped out my WNV
There private doctors had the best of equipment and medicine yet some of these perfectly healthy people died......

It might be time for you to put down the bong as you are showing symptoms of chronic smoking syndrome........CSS
