Fight Erupts In Line At Nev. Swine Flu Clinic
WSMV Nashville, TN. ^ | 10/29/2009 | WSMV

RENO, Nev. -- A fight broke out Thursday at a Reno, Nev., clinic giving shots for swine flu when someone reportedly tried to cut in line. Washoe County Health District spokeswoman Judy Davis says she didn't have any details of the incident, but it involved people in high-risk groups waiting for a chance to get the shot. A witness told the Reno Gazette-Journal that a man took a swing at a woman, then jumped on her and they fell to the ground. They left after a security guard stepped in and broke up the fight. Davis says 1,200 vaccines were available and 200 to 300 people were unable to get one. Health officials urged people to be patient and courteous.

I bet someone thought that their “civil rights” were being violated by not being at the front of the line.

We need that photo they had, the high school kid holding the sign high, “Welcome to Government Healthcare”.

Once Øbamacare is fully implemented this will be an everyday occurance and “dog bites man” non-news.

CNN’s Gupta said tonight, it is less virulent than anyone had thought...LESS VIRULANT THAN THE FLU OF THE SEASON!

So why are we in a National Emergency?

Media hype!

As that brave/insane guy said with his hand-written placard displayed
for the sheeple waiting in the rain in Milwaukee last week:

“Welcome To Government Healthcare!”

Why are we in a National Emergency? To take attention away from administration dithering and Democratic buffonery and to gain more control.

True, but there could be a much bigger reason, my FRiend.

If the HHS can scare peeps into taking the shot (for a relative "weakie" of a bug); then...

When not so much happens, the Glorious Leader, Chairman Omabao can claim credit for saving our very lives! School kids and "news" consumers would hear this every day for the next 3 years.

It all fits too nicely.

Why are people falling for these idiot scare tactics? They are the same idiots who fell for Obamao's "Hope and Change(TM)".

Sounds like somebody needed a rabies shot more than a flu shot...

The problem with those statistics is the rapid flu swab used by most hospitals and clinics is only about 30-50% at picking up H1n1. I have several people in the hospital with multiple negative rapid flu swabs that are positive for H1N1 when the more specific DNA testing is done.
Not to say this is not overblown. Most people are not that sick with H1N1 - but if you do get sick, you get REALLY sick...

Thank you for commenting and especially for speaking in plain English.:) Does the swine flu just clobber someone even if they are very healthy at the onset? I'm sure your really sick hospital patients wished they were immunized beforehand. Will they now be naturally immunized from future strains (other mutations) or just the current one?

And would DNA testing be done on ALL those who have been hospitalized that pull up a negative via the rapid flu swabs? It seems that this flu has not really been tracked in a thorough manner -- or at least I'm hearing many a conflicting story -- and this confusion might be sending some folks to get the shot just because they are erring on the side of caution. And, try as I may, I'm unable to find a link that details the ingredients of the swine flu vaccines. Do you happen to know where I could find that?

I’d believe that more if the “Dear Leader’s” own had taken the shot themselves.

The charts for Calif and Alaska are especially interesting. H1N1 is roughly only %20 of the seasonal influenza.

Some "National Emergency" as Chairman Obamao lied, appealing (as he chooses to do) to FEAR.
