What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

Consider this -

Of the 149-150 deaths in Mexico that the MEDIA is saying are related to Swine Flu ONLY 20 have been CONFIRMED (through lab tests) to be from Swine Flu. Of the 129 to 130 OTHER cases NOT caused by Swine Flu - the deaths are believed to be from pneumonia!!! OR "OTHER VIRAL ILLNESSES." Huh? So WHY isn't the world all freaked out over the 129-130 PNEUMONIA OR OTHER VIRAL illnesses....but is spazing over 20 Swine Flu deaths? Seems to me that there's something MORE dangerous if it's killing 129-130 people and all they know is "it's viral but it's NOT swine flu."

36,000 people a year EVERY YEAR die from the flu. The flu is a serious illness. It kills. Swine flu IS JUST another version of the flu. PERIOD. Get a grip!! Take the precautions you would normally take and get on with your lives. Most of the people lining up at hospitals and several of those who have died have died from things other than swine flu. One died from tuberculosis!! MUCH more dangerous than the flu and more contagious. This is the media's attempt to stir up newspaper sales.

HIV/AIDS is a pandemic. It kills and infects MILLIONS every year. How come we don't hear more about that? Cancer is about to surpass heart attacks as the number one killer. How come we don't hear more about that? Malaria is a world wide epidemic - killing thousands of people a week and a simple $10 mosquito net would save those lives yet we don't hear about that!! Why not? Because nothing gets people more stirred up and panicked than "a pandemic"!!!!

Seriously. Get over it and LOOK at the numbers. Actually LOOK at the facts. We're all NOT going to die from swine flu.
