Though the Brucella bacterium
was isolated more than a century ago, science is still in its
infancy in understanding how it operates in a host body. It is
stealthy, hiding in the lymph nodes, replicating, spreading out
to organs and joints, hiding again. Brucella exploits a hosts
own immune cells, to transport the bacteria around the body, hijaking
the normal functioning of the host cell, enabling it to survive,
proliferate and produce the disease brucellosis.
In much the same way, APHIS
and DOL have hijacked our democratic government and the funding
for their own agenda - eradication of brucellosis in wildlife;
using federal taxpayer dollars, our own legislators, even our
own wildlife agencies, hunters and conservationists to achieve
their goals. They replicate and spread, creating this massive
brucellosis eradication industry and the industry's job security.
On one hand, to the international community, they say the US is
free of brucellosis and market our beef and domestic bison as
such. To defend the 3 GYA states cattle industry to the other
states, they use the responsible science and say their is no real
problem, brucellosis from wildlife is "small", "rare".
Yet, within the GYA, these same agencies use fearmongering statements,
irresponsible "science", obfuscation to pursue their
agenda. This begs the question, which is the real threatening
disease? Brucellosis or the APHIS brucellosis industry?
