Deserves Got Nothing To Do With It

A health care panel examining emergency measures in the event of a pandemic disaster has drawn up a list of those who should not be treated. The study assumes meager resources, a strained health care system, and patients who - even if they did receive treatment - would not live long anyway.

Check out the story HERE.

I read that yesterday and to be honest I wasn't surprised. If another global pandemic hit the US like Influenza did back in 1918, I really don't think that the US could handle the volume of sick people. Fema has already demonstrated that they can't handle a large scale disaster so for the medical field and military to take 'a battlefield' approach is probably what they will do.

This senario is even more likely if we were to be hit with biological weapons. We could expect widespread quarantine, enforced by the military.

Is this suggested approach fair for all citizens? No. I think it is very wrong. But reality is reality.

When it comes down to medical treatment, it will only be for goverment and state officials, the elite, and the fittest.

The rest of us will be on our own. We'll have to take care of ourselves and do what we can for our neighbors - if possible.

And if you think this is scary - you should read some the conversations over on the Delphi forums concerning ways to control/relieve the human population - I'll be posting on that subject soon.
