Makes You Wonder

I'd read something about this last year, but Mind of Mog has some new information on Saddam and West Nile.

I gotta tell you, I'm as suspicious as hell.

Yup.

Or for that matter "hoof and mouth" in the UK.

Undeclared biowarfare, or at least not declared publically.

And in the Bay Area, Eco-advocacy groups are busy expanding the 30,000 acres of prime mosquito habitat with a $100+million purchase of salt-pond acreage, about to become salt-marsh. One square acre of salt-marsh is capable of generating four million salt-marsh mosquitoes. Up in Norte-bay, in Novato, a trap caught over 10,000 adults in the space of one single night. Maybe that's what pissed-off the Coastal Commission, they don't get to play with as many mosquitos?

Keith, thanks for passing that on. I've been very concerned for the bird population after reading what the mortality rate is for infected birds. Just seems that West Nile isn't being taken as seriously as it should be. Or it is, and we just aren't being told [shrug]

I've been concerened about this for a while, since I live right next to this "habitat resource" but the regular news only says, "Wear more repellant, drain water from the old tires in your backyard!" Like I have old tires or standing water in my back yard? Thanks very much pal! The mainstream feed ignores any critical look at the big eco-people; who, what, where, and how they spend (somebody/anybodys') money.
