Well, the western world’s not rich anymore, so I guess we’re all in trouble.

WHO tried so hard to get this pandemic off the ground. They raised the level every day with hopes that the virus would follow, but alas it did not flourish. so back on prosac they went until now. Thier hopes are up, thier levels of enthusiasum are close to uncontrollable and maybe , just maybe this time we will get the pandemic they longed for and the CONTROL they so desire.

But why. We are being told that contraception is the key to saving the problem. Would not having masses of people drop dead be even better for our earth? Or is this just more about transferring money from those who earned it to those who didn’t earn it?

What would the world do without Western Civilization?

Not much.

And given America’s current “leaders,” I’d Say Western Civilization is threatened; that we’re about to join the un-western world.

Barry will be delivering the check to the UN on Tuesday.

UNITED NATIONS | President Obama’s popularity has slipped among Americans as he labors to pass a tough domestic agenda, but he can expect a warm welcome when he visits the United Nations this week.

Scores of world leaders are eager to hear Mr. Obama deliver his first speech to the world body and hope he will be more sympathetic to their needs

I was told the other day that we will receive 1200 doses of vaccine for a population of 45,000. I’m sure the antiviral dose ratio is similar. Why should we pay for other countries to have a vaccine?

My son (the one with weakest immune system) is just getting over a case of H1N1. It cost him 1.5 days of college classes. His symptoms were typical flu symptoms - but they weren't so bad that he requested a visit from the "mombulance".

This whole thing is a total exaggeration.

Next year they'll be insisting on protecting us from the Boogey Man.

Don’t take this matter lightly.

My mother was an Army Nurse in Houston during the Flu epidemic of 1917, and she told me that all they could do was try to keep body temperatures down while watching soldiers die.

Yeah, Unless we pay, people who are governed by crooks may die. Well maybe it time for these people to rise up and take control of their own countries. It’s time for the US to cut off the foreign countries that hate us. If Americas gives you money, goods, or services, you do what we tell you to do. If you don’t want to do that, fine, don’t take our foreign aid!

I Am Proud To Be A Racist.

I acknowledge there are differences between human races,
and I believe ALL Races are equally beloved by God --
and that He made us different for a reason.
Vive le difference!
I celebrate our differences,
And I thank our Creator who gave us rich Diversity
instead of stultifying uniformity.
Amen.

So, can we get on with it now?

I saw this posted on an earlier thread. Very interesting. It addresses H1N1, the vaccine, vaccines in general, past outbreaks and what to do if you are forced to take the vaccine. I encourage everyone to watch it before deciding to take the vaccine. It’s in 4 parts.

Why is it the left worships Darwinism until reality rears its ugly head and then they demand Capitalism and Judaeo-Christian values step forward to save millions?

The worshippers of Darwinism say only the fittest, i.e. those with the vaccine, should survive. So which side has, which side developed, the vaccine? Could it be the Capitalists of the US? Those rich, evil, Capitalists who should be destroyed?

OK - Let’s all go John Galt and let them destroy the Capitalist system. What in the hell are they going to do the next time a pandemic or similar crisis arises?

The observation has been made - “The longer the drink order, the bigger the a-hole”.

On the very rare occasions I go to Starbucks, my order is “Small standard coffee, room for cream”.

Well under six seconds.

While I do not discount the horrors of 1917, my little boy had the swine flu and it was 3 nights that were not so fun, and then he was better. No Tamiflu or anything. It was just a flu. I know other families that have had it too, and it hasn’t been a big deal for any of them. I know there are bad cases. But most will not have that.
