"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Does the CDC scare the crap out of anyone else?

I know they do brilliant work. The doctors and researchers pretty much go at it around the clock. But they can disappear you in ways Jimmy Hoffa's killers can only dream of.

if you're afraid of it, get vaccinated.  it's just that simple.

and don't blame it on illegals; it's been around the US forever.  I know because I was exposed to it in undergrad by someone who was a middle class American with pre-revolution roots.

You bring up a great plot for a novel EC.  But seriously, imagine the CDC going off like the IRS on people that the administration dislikes.  Just let that sink in....does anyone have any doubt that there are people working in the Obama Administration that wouldn't use any government agency - including the CDC - to advance their agenda?  I never thought of their weaponized potential before.

Blame Stephen King - The Stand. He pointed out just how easy it is to weaponize the CDC.
