    Interesting.......We are seeing more and more of the high dollar wasteful spending from our government at a time we can least afford it.

    Another example of corporate greed corrupting the government. We're supposed to have government by the people, not people buying the government.

    You know that! Much of that money is going to go right back to the DNC as "donations".

    Yeah, well, we had TB virtually erradicated as well.

    Smallpox still exists over seas, and therefore is still a threat. And there are some populations HERE that are still very, very susceptible to it...

    My understanding is that the only 2 places in the world small pox exists is in Moscow at the their bioweapons lab Biopreparat and in Atlanta in a Level IV facility at the CDC.

    What we are talking about is the more virulent strain of smallpox. That particular strain has been eradicated. We believe. However, I have to disagree with the statement in the article I just referenced above about keeping the virus so an vaccination could be made if needed. The smallpox vaccination was made from cow pox. But is now made from vaccinia which is in the same family as cow pox..
