    This just might be the cure for Obama.
    Shut government down for the next 45 months.

    My bet is we would be way better off in the end.

    I changed my mind today about the swine flu outbreak. I think it has the potential to be very serious.

    Today, I received an e-mail from the Canadian embassy in Shanghai. They said that even though no cases have been reported in China, that if flu activity reaches here, they are advising me that I have the choice to leave or I could potentially face being stuck here. The reason is that they would not allow flights from China to fly to Canada in the case of an outbreak.

    They also advised that if I come down with the swine flu, that facilities where I am might not be able to adequately help me and that I could face life threatening complications.

    It seems like governments are preparing for a pandemic.

    The swine flu or H1N1 (as the WHO is now calling it due to the fact the name 'Swine Flu' was leading to unnecessary slaughter of pigs) has not yet really impacted southeast Asia and China.

    Virologist expected any such flu to originate in southeast Asia due to the poor health conditions and proximity people live with amongst animals.

    So, I guess the question is, how bad will the flu hit in this area when it inevitably does get there and already had the potential to mutate?

    At least China won't have the need to cover-up the outbreak like they did with the bird-flu seeing as it didn't originate there.
