Afraid the origin of this strain may be Mexico, my man. Course we don’t do damn near enough to stop the *speaders* from coming in.
Why not just go ahead and close all the schools for a week or so? We would save money and the kids would like an extended spring break. It would reduce spreading any illnesses right now.
“Perry asking CDC for over 37,000 courses of Tamaflu from Strategic National Stockpile. “
That’s a pathetically small number of doses. Will cover about 1 small burb of Dallas.
That is true. I was just joking about Texas. It is a great state but I really wish they would stop the “quit America” talk.
I don’t know CindyDawg. It seems like the flu and other crud is spread faster when the kids are out during the holidays.
Maybe we should lock them in the schools until this is over? (o:
After reading this article, I remembered an article I read yesterday on the BBC website, where people left comments. One comment was from a doctor in Mexico City, who said the deaths were close to 200, not 20 or 60.
Tamiflu is very very expensive. Who is going to pay for it? Oh, I know! Let’s raise the tobacco tax again!
More like *America quiting us* but, whatever. We’re just trying to put the fear of God in an otherwise God-less admin.
lol. You may have a point. Where is hocndoc?
Why is the phrase “bumpity-bump” running through my mind?
It the Mexican Flu. So, call it the Mexican Flu.
The socialists and PC people will call it swine flu.
I was guessing that the extra meds were for medical staff, esp around the border.
It looks like this swine flu thing is going to put a big dent in the BIG May 1st Socialist “worker” Day and Cinco de Mayo extravaganzas in this country. LOL! Oh well, we can make up for it next year and celebrate whatever the hell it is we are celebrating on Cinco de Mayo.
US declares public health emergency for swine flu
When will “undocumented workers” start flooding the boarder looking for meds.
Thats a pathetically small number of doses. Will cover about 1 small burb of Dallas.
Think of it as the new T.A.R.P. you only get it if you count and most of us don’t count...lol.
Why is the phrase bumpity-bump running through my mind?
roflol DITTO! But hey look what happened in the end. God gets the last say even with Stephen King! Bad guys all dead!!
My thought, how do they know that this particular anti-viral will work on this supposedly “mutated pig, bird, human strain”?
I’m sure the PTBs will come up with a *popular* name.
It’s ony partially a *swine* flu.
