The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology issued a dire warning Monday about the spread of the swine flu virus later this year, titled "On US Preparations for 2009-H1N1 Influenza." It claimed that a "plausible scenario" would be "infection of 30–50 percent of the U.S. population this fall and winter, with symptoms in approximately 20–40 percent of the population (60–120 million people), more than half of whom would seek medical attention."
In 2007, U.S. life expectancy reached an all-time high of 77.9 years, up from 77.7 in 2006. The National Center for Health Statistics compiled the data based on almost 90 percent of the death certificates filed in the United States.
After several decades of complaining about the influence of “Conservative Evangelicals” on the political process, the American Left has been stepping up its campaign in the last year to utilize its own religious allies in the fight over the future of the American Republic. A very significant development in the struggle for the souls of Americans is the decision by President Barack Obama to speak with 1,000 religious leaders in a series of conference calls.
