When nearly 1000 cases of mumps surfaced in Iowa the Center for Disease Control should have responded automatically as they are reportedly tracking such things with heavily financed programs in Atlanta. As it was Iowa and other Midwestern states had to report the problem to them in order to finally get them to respond with mumps vaccine. What was the CDC doing when they should have been doing their job? It looks like they were trying to prove that laziness is genetically inherited and that damaged DNA is not caused by stress and chemicals but is an indication of laziness. Eugenics, which is the study of hereditary improvement of the human race by controlled selective breeding is raising its ugly head in the United States again. I received an unsolicited bit of mail the other day posing as a newspaper entitled The Truth At Last. It is produced by a group called The National Vanguard. It features writings by men like David Duke who contributed the article, New Orleans: Africa-like savagery. You can also order books and tracts like Defensive Racism and The Biology of the Race Problem from their offices in Marietta, Georgia. Twenty-two miles from Marietta are the offices of the Center for Disease Control. Even through bird flu threatens the United States, AIDS continues to be an epidemic problem and other serious diseases flourish in the United States (like the outbreak of mumps in the Midwest) the CDC has turned its attention to something called chronic fatigue syndrome. According to the Associate Press chronic fatigue syndrome appears to result from something in people's genetic makeup that reduces their ability to deal with physical and psychological stress, researchers reported Thursday. The CDC is claiming that they have evidence that genetics along with stress can cause chronic fatigue syndrome. That is - lazy people are genetically disposed to laziness and there is nothing you can do about it. Dr. William Reeves of the CDC was quoted as saying, "The results are ground-breaking." This information was published in 14 articles published in this month's issue of Pharmacogenomics, published by nature publishing group, which is a subsidiary of Macmillan Publishers, Ltd., which is owned by a German company called Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH. The Macmillan Company has, in the past, published such items as, The Kallikak Family: A Study in the Heredity of Feeblemindedness by Goddard, H.H. in 1912, Gifted Children: Their Nature and Nurture, by Hollingworth, L.S. in 1926, Eugenical Sterilization: A Reorientation of the Problem., by Myerson, A., J.B. Ayer, T.J. Putnam, C.E. Keeler, and L. Alexander in 1936, Foundations of Educational Sociology, by Peters, C.C. in 1930, Applied Eugenics, by Popenoe, P. and R. Johnson in 1918. Dont you think its time for the CDC to account for its actions and all the money that is poured into it by the States and the Federal Government?
