Our enemies in the Middle East can bring them in the shipping containers. That IS one of the biggest threats our country faces at home. Enemies in the Middle East have access to more than you would think and many forms of delivery.
what better way for a government to take away the freedoms of its people than by scaring them with unrealistic threats to get them to voluntarily give up freedom for security. If you really believe our enemies in the Middle East are a threat then why haven't they already attacked us again by now? If and when it happens how will we ever know who actually did it or whether or not it was just another false flag operation?

Three out of his 4 hives are working. He has an old stump that has bees coming in and out of it. So, I think he's got an idea planned for that. He rescued the old stump several mos. The bees were scaring some local workers, so Dad rescues the little honeybees;) Lol. He's a worker like you. A considerate man.
Ok, so I meant stands of bees or supers. I was thinking I typed hives. Hehe. I think, it is time for bed...

lala, I haven't heard about that "gay" disease killing in New York. I did see this though:
Antibiotic resistance a "catastrophic threat" - medical chief
LONDON (Reuters)- Antibiotic resistance poses a catastrophic threat to medicine and could mean patients having minor surgery risk dying from infections that can no longer be treated, Britain's top health official said on Monday.
Sally Davies, the chief medical officer for England, said global action is needed to fight antibiotic, or antimicrobial, resistance and fill a drug "discovery void" by researching and developing new medicines to treat emerging, mutating infections.
Only a handful of new antibiotics have been developed and brought to market in the past few decades, and it is a race against time to find more, as bacterial infections increasingly evolve into "superbugs" resistant to existing drugs.
"Antimicrobial resistance poses a catastrophic threat. If we don't act now, any one of us could go into hospital in 20 years for minor surgery and die because of an ordinary infection that can't be treated by antibiotics," Davies told reporters as she published a report on infectious disease.
"And routine operations like hip replacements or organ transplants could be deadly because of the risk of infection."
One of the best known superbugs, MRSA, is alone estimated to kill around 19,000 people every year in the United States - far more than HIV and AIDS - and a similar number in Europe.
And others are spreading. Cases of totally drug resistant tuberculosis have appeared in recent years and a new wave of "super superbugs" with a mutation called NDM 1, which first emerged in India, has now turned up all over the world, from Britain to New Zealand.
Last year the WHO said untreatable superbug strains of gonorrhoea were spreading across the world.
Laura Piddock, a professor of microbiology at Birmingham University and director of the campaign group Antibiotic Action, welcomed Davies' efforts to raise awareness of the problem.
"There are an increasing number of infections for which there are virtually no therapeutic options, and we desperately need new discovery, research and development," she said.
Davies called on governments and organisations across the world, including the World Health Organisation and the G8, to take the threat seriously and work to encourage more innovation and investment into the development of antibiotics.
"Over the past two decades there has been a discovery void around antibiotics, meaning diseases have evolved faster than the drugs to treat them," she said.
Davies called for more cooperation between the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries to preserve the existing arsenal of antibiotics, and more focus on developing new ones.
Increasing surveillance to keep track of drug-resistant superbugs, prescribing fewer antibiotics and making sure they are only prescribed when needed, and ensuring better hygiene to keep infections to a minimum were equally important, she said.
Nigel Brown, president of the Society for General Microbiology, agreed the issues demanded urgent action and said its members would work hard to better understand infectious diseases, reduce transmission of antibiotic resistance, and help develop new antibiotics.
"The techniques of microbiology and new developments such as synthetic biology will be crucial in achieving this," he said.

what better way to sell new drugs than to bioengineer resistant bacteria so you can market the antibiotic to fight it. Ever wonder how quickly these new drugs come out so soon after the resistant superbugs show up? Pure geniuses these microbiologists.

why would they want to ban firearms, smoking cigarettes, obesity, suspersized colas, or halt highrise jumping or convince people to practice motor vehicle safety and make abortions illegal ?

How will microbiologists keep the new strains from attacking granny? or choose which unwanted elements to control?

Forget the supersized colas, let's all just grab onto the concepts of mass hysteria and paranoa.

It sure wasn’t the hole-in-one Mark Mihal had in mind.

While golfing with friends at the Annbriar Golf Course near here Friday, Mihal, 43, a mortgage broker from Creve Coeur, abruptly dropped into the ground on the fairway of the 14th hole. It was the first time a person — and not a ball — has disappeared beneath the turf in the course’s 20-year history.

It also was the first time in the memory of folks who study sinkholes in Illinois that a person has fallen into one.

“I was standing in the middle of the fairway,” Mihal said Monday.“Then, all of a sudden, before I knew it, I was underground.”

DENNIS RODMAN meet with the N. Korean leader. He will probably meet and converse with a lot more different people. He's doing this on his own. It's non-political. He expresses himself anywhere, anytime and anyway. He has no script to go by. He's just being his crazy self(lol). I think if a lot more people were like that, it would be better. If people would stop trying to be something that they're not, you will feel better about yourself and the people around you. THAT MY FRIENDS I CALL LIVING.

Good evening everyone.(((Hugs)))

AW - all the chip sayings were great! For some reason I could not get you and helping the older fellow with the roof off my mind yesterday. This world would be a far better place if there were more like you. My poor neighbor has a bad tooth ache and I am so broke this month and cannot help. This is the first time in a very long time that I could not help someone in need.=(

I went back to bed and slept in this morning! A first in about 3 months. Yet, I feel like I could go back to bed again. LOL I did go and have some late coffee with my girlfriend. Now I need to get my butt busy.

Topix was giving me a hard time yesterday. I thought my post did not show up and I quit. Now, I see at least one (more than once lol). If this one posts then I will post again later for a break. Well, unless I go back to bed early.

(((Extra Hugs)))

I went back today and we installed the metal roofing. I will go some other day and box in the eaves, but at least the old couple is ready for the next rain, and now I need to get ready for my dinner date. LOL Have a good evening, I should be on later when the lady goes home.

Just popped in for a minute. I've actually been busy today, but I managed to fit in a 1 mile walk, on the farm, from the house to the river and back. This is the first time that I have felt well enough to attempt exercise in almost a year. It figures, though, that as soon as I start my exercise program, the temperatures are expected to plummet. I cannot wait until spring. I much prefer the heat of summer than the cold of winter. Well, time for a nap to recharge before wrestling with the taxes. At this rate, I will be lucky to get it done before April 15.

much of what you consider as hysteria and paranoia has been proven to be reality such as HAARP and chemtrails, biowarfare and population control...but for those who wish to remain blissfully unaware, this will remain in the realm of conspiracy hysteria and paranoia...to each his own I suppose.

next year im boycotting springing forward and building a blanket fort.

had me screwed up all week. poodle doesn't know which end is up either.... normally as soon as hubby pulls in the drive in the morning, he is up waiting at the door with his squeaker..... this morning hubby came in and Joe was still curled up in bed... he made it half way in the bed room before Joe shot up like we were being robbed... showing teeth and all. very funny....

eventually i think we are going to end up with a dog who loves me and bites daddy.... <pets dog, offers treat, "good boy">

angel (the am staff i inherited from work last year) has finally convinced me that she is not going to eat the cats...not that they are convinced :) has been inside more than out this winter..... she still sleeps in her crate but we haven't shut the door in weeks. he didn't slip past her... but she didn't start barking till Joe woke up and flipped. had to rescue hubby from both "killers" but seriously gives me pause about their protective capacity. oh well maybe i will get lucky and possible intruder will trip over a cat.

One can be aware of the reality without choosing to live in the realm of conspiracy hysteria and paranoia. It is not blissful ignorance, but simply that I will not allow other people's concepts to contol my life (or death). GOD is still in control and there is a third option for "each HIS own" and that is to trust in GOD and do the best that you can and not be overly concerned with what others may or may not do.

I won't be like the story of the flood, where the guy fist moved to the upstairs and the rescue workers came by in a boat and asked him to evacuate and he said "GOD will take care of me". The waters rose and he went to the attic and more rescue workers came by and he told them the same thing. Then he moved to the roof and a 3rd set of rescue workers came in a boat and it was the same story until he drowned.

When he got to Heaven, he said "GOD what happened? I thought you were taking care of me". God said "I sent 3 boats after you'. So I will do the best that I can, but I won't make conspiracy theories a part of my daily diet.
