    I saw a new? commercial on TV about the pandemic avian flu on TV the other night. It has a websight to go to for people to see how to get prepared. WHAT? [​IMG] Well the way it is worded and shown it seems to be trying to stir up panic in people. I have seen it about 10 times in the last 3 days. What is up with that? Anyone else see this? What do you think?

    I went to the website and there is nothing seriousely happening with the avian flu, but the commercial seems to me to be trying to stir up a hornet's nest. Is that just me or does anyone else feel that way?


    The websight is pandemicflu.gov and doesnt seem to have anything flaming on there. But I consider the commercial to be trying to flame people.

    Weird. Has there been any outbreaks of the avian flu?

    I think so far there has not been any reported cases yet but I could be wrong.

    there was one in KY recently. But not the type that can spread to humans. Although it might be a case of it being easily mutated?

    This is why we should be more closely monitoring things that come from outside the US. I don't think there have been any cases inside our boarders. IMHO we are doing just fine here, it's other countries (China, etc) that we need to be worried about. Like the new Food Health Bill that keeps getting posted. WE are doing just fine, go spend your time inspecting things that are imported.
