I'm Ashamed

I'm ashamed right now to be an America, because we're acting like a bunch of scared ninnies.  I an truly angry at the American for quaking in their slippers over an eventuality that may or may not occur.  I'm sick and damned tired of being told that it's better to safe than sorry.  No, it's not.  It's better to be fearless and bold.

If Americans thought it was better to be safe, we'd all be under the British flag. If Americans thought it was better to be safe, we would not have fought a civil war to answer a political question.  If Americans thought that it was better to be safe, we would never have fought Wold War II.

We're Americans.  Safety should not be the question.

I was out running around today, getting my errands done, and I could see ear in everyone's eyes.  And it pissed me off.

What are you afraid of?  Dying?  I can guarantee that you are going to die. There is no getting around it.  We're all going to die.  In the meantime, let's be fearless ad bold.  Let's be Americans.

Bravo! I've been disgusted for over a week now. It's just another strain of flu. The stuff they are telling everybody to do, today, is the same thing they tells us every flu season, wash your hands, stay at home if your sick, blah, blah, blah. Chicken Little, the media, but I repeat myself, finally woke up?!?!?!

Around where I live in PA I see some fear, and I see plenty of preparation. Why are shelves in the grocery store empty? Because people decided to shop for two, three or four weeks instead of just one like they usually do.

There's a difference between panic and proper preparation. I get a flu shot every year to mitigate (not eliminate) my chances of catching the flu. At best, the flu makes me miserable for a week or two. Since I'm asthmatic, the flu could send me to the hospital,I'd rather avoid that. Same with this, there's no vaccine (yet, but once there is I'm damn sure getting it), so I avoid crowds, wash my hands when I come home if I do go out, and generally do what I reasonably can to mitigate (there's that word again) my chances of getting it, because the odds are the roll of a single die hitting 6 that if I DO get it I'll need medical care, and I'd rather not.
