Could somebody tell our fearless leader we don't really have to spent all those billions fighting bird flu?
The way I understand it, scientists are saying bird flu is so virulent because it is a strain of flu that has evolved so recently human beings don't have any resistance to it yet.
But there is a significant percentage of the American People who don't believe in evolution. Therefore, they are probably not concerned about the effects of avian flu. Heck, they will probably spurn any newly developed vaccines against the disease, since taking them would put the lie to their stated rejection of evolution. We really only need enough vaccine for the people who accept the scientific theory of evolution. The ID people can use the same flu vaccines that have always been available. What a great opportunity for them to demonstrate their faith.
