The entire southern hemisphere is just emerging from winter, how many cases of widespread H1N1 were reported there?

Your little friends in the Southern Hemisphere have little Temperate Zone real estate to occupy, so you're asking about a couple of Australian cities, maybe a couple in South America ~ and it's entirely possible you could ferret the information out on the Internet.

For the most part folks in the Southern Hemisphere live out of doors most of their "winter" ~ kind of like folks in Florida.

Under those conditions the transmissibility of flu virus is severely limited.

Good grief. What a lowdown, unethical tactic to squeeze money out of *rich* nations.

Blackmailing them and hanging over their heads the threat of blaming them with anarchy if they don’t fork over $$$$.

Like the money would even get to where it’s needed with the corrupt demigogues who are ruling most of these third world hell holes.

They didn’t have the facilities, hygiene or medicine then that we have now, either. You can’t really compare 1917 to now. The flu in 1976 killed fewer people than the shot did.

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.

So what? Where is the connection with H1N1? Are you actually saying that because 1917 medicine required your mother to watch flu victims die, we should give $900 million to the UN and sign over our rights to a medical lockdown today?

Go take a valium - or go back to DU, whichever fits.

Well, that could be a while.

I've declined the shot repeatedly when I've gone to the VA.

And I will continue to decline any flu shot.

In fact, in the 28 years I've been a patient at my local VA, I've only gotten a flu shot 1 time.

And 4 days later I was so sick I had to be admitted to the hospital.

So I'm gonna pass on that shot! The only way I'm getting it is if they strap me down and give it to me forcibly!

This is either the truth (in which money isn’t going to help that much) or a crash grab.

Either way, we shall see.

We are constantly told that there are too many people on the planet and it is causing global warming. Now we are told that we have to save millios of people because it will destroy the economys if we don’t. It seems nature is cleansing the population problem (or not). Why not just roll the dice and take the chance. There is not enough vacine for everyone anyway so who makes the choice as to who gets it. It may be time for nature to weed out the fittest. Alot of old folks don’t want the vacine.

My wife apparently had the swine flu a week ago, she didn’t consult a doctor, she ran a fever and felt lousy for three days and it will take a week or two to regain full strength.

This is nothing like the Hong Kong flu of 1968. I had that at the age of 24 and very nearly died, my fever went to 105 with continous hallucinations and pain that felt as though I had been beaten head to toe with a large stick.

The 1917 version was different, the Hong Kong flu of 1968 was more like the 1917 version, I nearly died in ‘68 myself. This H1N1 is nothing like that. It could mutate but let’s hope not.

I am going to step out on a limb here, so bear with me.

I was an undergrad at the University of Connecticut (Sept 1975 - May 1977) when the first “Swine Flu” vaccine was forced upon us. Students were told that if they refused the vaccine they would be expelled from campus. The University never offered home based classes for those who might have a valid objection to the vaccine. We were put over the proverbial barrel. I lined up like a good little soldier in the R.O.T.C. hangar on campus and underwent the “procedure” which amounted to a gigantic “gun” aimed at my upper arm delivering a powerful punch. My left arm was sore and bruised for weeks afterward.

Having grown up lived overseas with periodic trips to the USA for “home leave” I was used to vaccinations. Lord knows how many I have received over my 56 years...! I can remember the pre-Iran ones like yesterday. Cholera, Thypus, Typhoid, Yellow Fever, Gamma Globulin and Hepatitis, along with the DPT “booster” shot. Somewhere in there was a TB “tine” test that showed up positive. It turns out I am allergic to albumen ... what a surprise. So, I am a vaccine “veteran.” That said, three years ago, a Chiropractor visit resulted in a “blown” L4/L5 disc requiring neurosurgery to correct the aftermath. A nasty surprise was in store for me: Guillain-Barré Syndrome!!!! Yup. Thank you, US Government!

I now have a “compromised” immune system and cannot take vaccines that are live virus based EVER. I am one of the ones that will die if exposed. Any suggestions for how to “defend” myself? Anyone willing to offer _competent_ medical or legal advice? I am reading.......

You come by the albumin problem "naturally" ~ you were born to have a reaction ~ so what you want to do is try to recall what your last cholera shot was like.

If your arm or a large chunk of it turned black you're probably immne to cholera and once you strain the amoebas out of it you can drink water right from the ditch without dying.

At the same time you may have substantial resistance to influenza and other bird born diseases anyway, and natural immunity to typhus, typhoid, black plague and AIDS.

I'm going to guess you have an egg allergy and can't really eat them unless they are cooked INTO something else, e.g. cookies, cakes, etc. There are some scientific papers on the internet that are easily accessed, and you should read them.

BTW, avoid the flu shots ~ you probably don't need them and the residual raw egg in the vaccine isn't doing you any good.

Now, the Guillain-Barré Syndrome, that's a reaction to the toxins in Campylobacter jejuni (a bacteria) or for no known reason at all ~ a simple but potentially deadly autoimmune reaction ~ but don't we all have our own inbuilt risks eh.

With the coming IceAge already on the horizon, it's probably good to be immune to Black Death, so don't knock it!~

Dr. Blaylock talked about doses of vitamin D3 to boost the immune system. He and others said that is your best defense against the flu. That may help. He said in the video that it won’t hurt. 5000 to 10000 units a day for adults. I am looking for a way to contact him to see if he has any advice for you.

I just looked at your post again. I think I misinterpreted it the first time. I don’t know how you can defend yourself. Maybe if you got a letter from your doctor that would be a start. Make sure your family knows all about it. I wonder if there would be any way of getting some kind of legal ruling forbidding any forced vaccination. Any legal people out there?

“WHO tried so hard to get this pandemic off the ground.”

Yeah, I keep scratching my head and wondering, what’s the panic? There has been no evidence of higher-than-usual fatality rates with this flu.
