Personally I think this is a mark of desperation rather than malice. Swine flu could be Obama’s Katrina. Thousands of dead children and tens of thousands more on life support machinery are going to look bad for him. We had months to prepare for this, and they have bungled it. When the magnitude of the failure becomes apparent, he’ll whine “But I declared an emergency in October! What more do you expect me to do?”
I believe this is attached to the PASSAGE of the HEALTH CARE BILL.... shame on you Zero!
Doctors in our area are telling us that very few people are actually testing to H1N1. Also are telling us that H1N1 is no worse than the regular flu. Co-worker’s husband on chemo was diagnosed with H1N1. Doc said it was because of his weakened condition. Flu medicine for a few days. Now he is fine. Wife never came down with it.
Orahma is dictating a manufactured crisis.
Anyone care to guess what this man is thinking?
We need to gather together and fund a campaign nationwide - to hit newsstand and check-out-line media with full page ads - that says something to bring *constant attention* to our troops in AFGHANISTAN.
Even just the words OUR TROOPS in AFGHANISTAN need our HELP! CALL YOUR CONGRESSCRITTERS AND LAY INTO THEM!
Obama sickens me right down to my soul.
“President Barack Obama has declared swine flu a “national emergency,” the White House said Saturday”
Can martial law be far behind?
Those are less important to him. The real purpose is to create widespread panic and generate support for nationalized healthcare. I mean in an emergency where would millions of hapless people turn to, if not the govt ?
Whew! I survived another one??
And to think I have NEVER had a flu shot in 53 years.
Quick! Get out the oink-ment.
The 1918 flu pandemic killed about 650,000 Americans and about 20-40 million worldwide.
Yes, they have bungled it - badly.
The government and the CDC royally f’d up. (Sorry for the swear)
Thanks - didn’t see it.
Mod - Can this be pulled, please?
What about the west nile virus?
Are we dead yet?
Is he going to gave us money.I have it right now and deserve 1,000.00.
Yep, continue the Chaos, keep a majority of the public scared and confused
Here comes another power grab.
Rahm Emanuel: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
Where can I take AF-1 tomorrow!
Drunk with power and a deep seated need to be a drama queen.
Reading the MSNBC version of this story, someone in the administration probably wrote it.
Does anyone have the total flu deaths in the US so far for ‘09?
I Googled it, and visited the CDC’s site, but it’s must a bunch of mumbo-jumbo out there. I just want the total for the year.
I’d bet that we’re still on track for an “average” year of flu deaths.
Anyone know exactly what they can now do by calling this?
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel posted this photo essay showing the HUGE lines of people being forced to wait outside in the rain for flu shots:
What, Doug Hoffman (Conservative) will now be elected to Congress for SURE in upstate New York week after next. All kinds of stuff about this are going to come out and rankle the grassroots of this country. For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction, Mr. President.
Guess which class has not had a child absent yet, thus far?
Something is up, and it can’t be good. We will survive the swine flu easily enough, but we may not survive Obamao. We need an Obamao emergency.
An effort to keep away public focus on the disputes with Fox News, and a populist approach to gain popularity to push the polls for job approval ratings in his favor.
Really? Even in America people die all the time - including from the flu. Tens of thousands die every year during flu season. H1N1 is nothing special.
BTW, we and other countries murder thousands of people on our respective soils every day and not too many think that much about it. It’s called abortion.
The joke of the whole thing is there is NO vaccine available for any children in our upstate NY schools. School shot clinics that were publicised have all been “postponed.” There is no vaccine period. So what’s the point of getting everyone all riled up? The flu will come and go here...this too shall pass. As soon as we get a couple of cases in the schools people will panic and just keep their kids home. Acutally that may stop the spread of the flu quite nicely...no shot needed.
I don’t think it’s nearly as much a vaccine shortage as it is a delivery chain failure, and that’s ALL on the federal government which has taken over that role.
I am concerned. Has the zero family (humans and dog) had their swine shots. If they haven't then zero can take his emergency and pork it.
This could be extremely important, if it were not for the fact that Obama, his administration and the dems can’t be trusted on ANYTHING.
This, as with all things Obama, is ALL about politics, power and money. It has absolutely nothing to do with you or the lives of your children and loved ones.
Obama knows that he has already failed on this issue and he’s trying to start a new narrative. Of course, he may think that this somehow helps him with his Healthcare-con.
He also needs a win and by hyping this up, he can later make it look as if he solved a national problem.
All hail Obama.
...and many of us might remember he fright (EEEEK!) of the horrible and Biblical Hong Kong flu!
Very interesting things can happen now...as described in the link.
Our county health commissioner and local hospital declared that anyone with symptoms will be "assumed to have the swine flu". The problem is my wife had the symptoms two weeks ago, went to the doctor and was told it was simply an upper respiratory infection. My neighbor's four kids were all sick, all were tested by their doctor and none of them had the swine flu.
There are thousands of viruses and seasonal infections that share the symptoms of the swine flue, if health officials simply assume it's the flu instead of actually testing to confirm it, any claims of a widespread epidemic are suspect.
What’s that cleaner called? I will get some for my child’s school.
My family is not getting any H1N1 vaccination.
I've not contracted any contagious illness in at least 3 yrs+; whereas I used to catch some resp virus 3-4 times yearly due to being in the medical field and having asthma, which sometimes lead to a secondary infection. Pneumonia once. I use other supps but I credit Vit D3 for my strong immunity, plus I sanitize my hands multiple times daily. This is also paramount. But check with your primary care doc first as they say.
The number of car crash deaths in 2008, 37,261.
Is that now a “national emergency” ?
I think it's more like 36,000 flu deaths annually, if I remember rightly.
Vaccines have proven successful in eradicating many diseases and staving off others.
The Piggly Wiggly vaccine was not rushed into production(Hear me out). We had the swine flu in 1976 and a vaccine for it. However, there more people suffered from the side effects of the vaccine itself, than died from the swine flu itself.
The current version of vaccine has not been rushed, so much as it has been repackaged, with production ramping up to meet the flu season.
There have been no human trials to test for efficacy and the percentage of expected relief.
There have been no human trials to determine what the side effects are and what the expected census numbers might be for each side effect.
Further, the state of Washington has approved the use of mercury as a transmitting medium. What are the side effects of injecting a human with mercury? How many children will come down with autism as a result?
To compound all this Tom Foolery many state departments of health are issuing statements of caution regarding the severity of the flu.
The State of Idaho issued a statement that, in effect, said the swine may not be any more virulent than any other strain, of which there as many as 15 each flu season. They further stated that studies have shown that swine flu is milder than previously thought and that most victims will recover faster than if they had other strains.
There is no reason to take the shot. NONE. You are being scammed by the drug companies.
Let’s get some things real clear about some things.(dont worry about my syntax or English. I wrote it this way on purpose)
They have been indemnified by the government from any and all law suits. If their drug causes injury to you and your loved one, are you willing to forgo your right to sue for injury or death? You don’t care? Oh? Well it is your life, but you should know they have not done any trials to measure efficacy rates or percentage of expected side effects or what those side effects will be.
The swine flu is not new.
However, be aware of there was swine flu experiment in 1976 and the complications from that little fiasco? Well more people came down with Gulliane Barr Syndrome than got sick with the swine flu.
That’s right more than 5,000 people were permanently paralyzed with many others suffering ill effects of a really bad idea, gone wrong.
Hope it doesn’t happen to you or your family but who knows.
The drug companies have done no testing and you won’t find out until afterward. Now check this; The drug companies are so smart and have done so much testing, They cannot figure out if you need 1 shot, 2 shots or 3 shots.
Yep, at first they were saying a single dose will suffice. Well, since they are indemnified why not say “you may require a booster shot” to ensure the effectiveness. Now for the last three weeks they have been saying “You may require 3 shots”. Why? No risk $$$$
WHO is lying:
Our own Centers for Disease Control are not giving sanction to the World Health Organization wildly dubious claims:
CDC leery of estimates about swine flu’s toll
WHO moves to pushing pharmacalogical alternatives rather than preventative care
have fun with this article, it is lengthy
Maybe this report from CBS news is indicative of the overblowing of this SCAM FLU:
(CBS) If you’ve been diagnosed “probable” or “presumed” 2009 H1N1 or swine flu” in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didnt have H1N1 flu.
In fact, you probably didnt have flu at all. That’s according to state-by-state test results obtained in a three-month-long CBS News investigation.
The mortality rates for Swine Flu/H1N1 are less than 1% of infected cases. Does this strike you as something you need an experimental drug for?
Hell there is money in this and as far as the company is concerned it is free money.
They cannot be sued and this is a zero/no risk opportunity for the executives and shareholders. Oh and if that weren’t enough, there are so many doctors and Secretaries of Health saying in effect:
“The swine flu is not as virulent as first thought. In fact, the effects are milder than other strains of the flu and recovery seems to be quicker” (Idaho Department of Health)sic.
It is not new and many people took vaccinations for it in the Mid 70’s. There were many who suffered terribly.
The Current scam for immunization by the Drug Companies exempts them from lawsuit.
Why? “No human trials have been done to determine efficacy or mortality rates.”
Watch the first video. It is only 3 minutes long and will leave you informed about your plan and choices should this “Pandemic” actually appear.
Ten Things Your Not Supposed to know about the Swine Flu Vaccine (Operation Kill-Shot) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUEIls5Ncf0&feature=related
60 minutes - SWINE FLU VACCINE WARNING - Part I
60 minutes - SWINE FLU VACCINE WARNING - Part II
As an aside I spent 10 days in Mexico and it sucked having the entire country shut down but, believe me, I shook every hombres hand and hugged the Senoritas(cuz I like em’).
Know what? I know I met at least 100 people that live down there year round and the only thing any one caught was fish. The flu can kill and good hygiene is your friend. But being forced to take an injection against your will and indemnifying the producers?
...and this, certainly, is some loophole-ish way to gain more power.
