In 1929, the government was able to eradicate an epidemic of hoof and mouth disease, which killed many of our cattle herds. The government opened a special bio-lab to study this deadly disease, and later expanded it to study other dangerous viruses; some of which have no known vaccine.
The original lab was placed on the very shores of the eastern seaboard, where the prevailing winds would carry any virus out over the ocean, should there be any kind of an accident.
In 2002, the DHS took over the lab, and has now decided to build a new one and move the lab right into the country;s heartland, where many of our livestock are being raised. Ranchers in the area are justifiably upset about this.
Even worse, the lab is being located in Kansas, which is right in the very heart of Tornado Alley.
And let's just suppose that a tornado does touch down here and destroyed the security of the lab, the prevailing winds would now blow eastward across our major population centers on the East Coast.
Smart, huh ?
