Obama Declares Non-Issue of H1N1 to be "National Emergency"

I ask the thinking, reasoning, and thoughtful mind God created within your brain to consider why a virus, which infects the body with a potency little more than a really nasty cold, and which has been responsible for fewer deaths than the vaccine which "protects" against it, could possibly be considered a "national emergency"?

Is that reasonable?

Consider that H1N1 was held responsible for the 1976 death of a Fort Dix army recruit, and Congress launched a mass vaccination program to stop a pandemic from occuring. Twenty-five times more people died from the vaccine than the flu, and there were 500 reported cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralyzing, auto-immune response to acute infection, due to the vaccine. A massive media blitz on propagandizing the people succeeded in vaccinating 24% of the population.

Later, Congress passed the National Emergencies Act, granting special powers to the executive office during a declared emergency, and which specifically suspends the right to Habeas Corpus for the plebians and eliminates the right to a Grand Jury for National Guardsmen.

In 2007, George W. Bush signed Executive Directive 51, a highly classified document which has only been revealed to Congress in-part and greatly expands the powers of the federal government over state and local governments to such a degree that they won't even allow Congress to know how far reaching it truly is.

A "national emergency", as currently defined by the federal government, means, "...Any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."

Who determines what is a "severe affect"? The President of the United States.

"Thanks, Bush. You're the best we ever had."

Since Quasi-President Obama has decided to throw his executive weight around by declaring a mild virus to be a national emergency, we can either expect whatever measures he and his administration deem necessary to "keep us safe" on a hair-trigger for the next several months, or we'll wind-up waiting for another minor event before he unleashes his plan of action.

What can we expect this plan to be? I don't know, but probably a lot of federal control of local infrastructures and law enforcement. Only time will tell what these dastards will do.
