Good grief. Now we're going to have politically correct diseases.

Please... please make it stop. Make the stupid go away!

Spanish Flu will now be: "Flu Originating Somewhere on the European Continent"
Avian Flu will now be: "Feathery Creature Flu"
Chagas disease will now simply be called "Trypanosomes Transmitted by Bloodsucking Bugs"
The German measles will now be called "Nasty Nazi Bumps" <j/k>

Unreal.

Just stupid. Sensitivity knob turned all the way up. Why would "avian flu or swine flu" be offensive to anyone? Reminds me of the congresswoman who wanted African-American sounding names for hurricanes. Why the hell would you want that?

Self appointed "global" Authorities usurping Governments around the world
where all bureaucrats work unfettered by intelligence or what the people want.
WTO, IMF, OECD, hell the EU itself has a non-elected Government in Brussels!

How about we simplify the language and replace "bureaucracy" with "virus"?

Both are an uncontrolled-growth organism that is detrimental to mankind.

Urr, excuse me - make that "Personkind"
