"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find only things evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelogus
He’s doing everything he can to distract everyone from the important issues like unemployment and Afghanistan.
There are quite a few kids that are out sick with the flu in both of my daughters schools. Even some of the more conservative parents are panicking. This is the perfect “never let a crisis go to waste” moment for the pissantOTUS.
And the banning of fishy rumors...
I don't like this. It's also odd that it would be announced on a Saturday (even less of a news day than a Friday afternoon).
uh oh..does this give him expanded presidential powers to FORCE people to get the shots?? quarantine specific areas?? will health “papers” be required to travel??
“Never let a good crisis go to waste”
And so it begins!
Sneeze into your sleeve or face jail time.
and increasing unemployment is the strategy to fight swine flu - keep people out of factories and offices...
“Two Purdue University math researchers have predicted the novel H1N1 flu will peak so early that planned vaccinations will not have a large effect on the number of people infected”
I still will not be distracted from what you crooks in the white house are doing to our beloved country.
Nice try, village idiot!
This gives him emergency powers, to shut down Fox News.
This BoZo will say and do ANYTHING to get his name on the front page....
Ironically, to be actually diagnosed with the flu, you have to have a culture by either a mouth swab sent to a lab or a blood test. If you test positive, you are prescribed Tamiflu. Problem is, the flu is a virus, much like the “common cold.” Tammiflu must be administered within 48 hours and doctors are not “supposed” to write scripts for it until it is actually diagnosed.
Doctors are cautioning on the safe side and issuing scripts based on the symptons alone. If you go to the doctor with a fever, headache and a cough, YOU WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH THE FLU. You will become a statistic. The swine flu takes additional tests.
Personnaly, I know two people that were “diagnosed with the swine flu.” Neither of them had a mouth swab or a blood test, both were prescribed Tammiflu and both were told it is treated the same way as Influenza A so there was no need to try and distinguish which flu they had.
I am skeptical about this pandemic, as I was with the SARS and the Bird flu.
This was the strange, curious, terrifying new one over which it did not make sense to close down the borders hermetically to Mexico ASAP, because "the horse was already out of the barn?"
How many were dead in the USA when our Sh*t-For-Brains President made that assinine statement?
How many dead now, months later? 1000? ONE THIRD OF THOSE WHO DIED ON 9-11??
Thanks "Mr. President."
We are are more endangered by the big deficit pig flu in Washington. See tag line...
ANOTHER “Manufactured Crisis!”
With Bush in the White House, this would mean nothing. But with Obama in the White House, it’s clearly another power-grabbing move, intended to set aside the normal rule of law.
Not that the rule of law concerns him anyway, as he has frequently shown already. But there are limits to how often he wants to show his hand, and limits to what the media can cover up.
If you combine this with the order given two months ago to cease testing for H1N1, it becomes obvious that he is not concerned about an actual epidemic. But he is creating a crisis, a panic.
He got into the White House in large part because Paulson picked a key moment to scare people out of their wits with the financial crisis—an October surprise.
And he used the earlier Swine Flu panic to speed up the confirmation process and get Kathleen Sebelius and her cohort of abortionists and killers in charge of national health care. Also, to get the public aware of the threat that was likely to return in the fall, and to get WHO to officially declare it a “pandemic.”
Now, he’s preparing for something else. Presumably, among other things, he intends to use it to ram Government Health Care through without the usual discussion—perhaps with just a 50 vote majority.
Next Step in the master plan is Martial Law.
This will be used as a tool to restrict movement and speech.
