Wall Street bankers once again are the target of populist outrage, this time over the news that Goldman Sachs (GS), Citigroup (C), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), and others are receiving limited doses of the H1N1 swine flu vaccine

This alone should be enough to scare the wits out of people who want socialized health care. It shows they will pick and choose who will get what. We had an article about this early yesterday morning and many people said their doctors offices cannot get the vaccine and high risk people are going without.

But then it pays to PAY

I wouldn’t assume any vaccine is clean OR effective after learning about the outbreak in Ukraine.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2378912/posts

It appears the H1N1 influenza has MAYBE mutated into a pneumonic form and the vaccine offers no protection.

The term that keeps being used then denied or glossed over is “pneumonic plague” which, if it is accurate, indicates a problem a bit more serious than any Flu virus mutation.

There has been extensive testing in Ukraine. It appears to be H1N1.

Plague is treatable with antibiotics. This ‘plague’ has been called a virus. Viruses are unaffected by antibiotics.

I was just diagnosed with H1N1 today.

That’s why I’m up at 1:50 a.m..

Sore throat, coughing, ugh!

After you recover I recommend you start taking a daily dose of 2000 IU Vitamin D. This prevents influenza and rhinoviruses.

I haven’t had the flu or head colds for 18 months, the length of time I’ve been taking the daily 2000 International Units of Vit D.

I’ll check it out.

I got the regular flu shot, take vitamins, wash my hands and abuse hand sanitizer.

My military shot record is 2 pages long.

I guess I just got lucky...

Mike (cough, cough)

Will this get the job done:

I am planning on adding it to my daily Fish Oil, Vitamin C, and Animal Pak intake.

Yes. Vitamin D-3 or Vitamin D; as long as it is 2000 IU.

My whole family has been taking it since this past spring.
So far so good.

I don’t think we will know for sure what it is until it is post facto. They call it pneumonic plague at one moment and H1N1 the next. The seal off areas then talk of very small numbers of deaths that wouldn’t seem to justify those measures. It is a large third world country with a heritage (70 years of Communism) of obfuscation of the truth as a matter of course regardles of what it is.

That's absolutely nothing at all; consider this.

The first arrivals of H1N1 vaccine in Dallas were reserved for the "uninsured" and pregnant women.

So the TV cameras pan in on the crowd lined up before dawn at the Dallas County medical center and guess what you see?

Thousands of illegals with their children. Not a whitey in the bunch, and very few blacks.

Yup, the illegals qualify for better treatment than do the citizens of Texas.

Yup. GS was Obama’s biggest corporate donor.

Who gets the vaccine when nurses on wards treating flu patients get can’t it?

GS big shots.

Great political ammo here. Especially since we have the WH log which show both the CEO of Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan visiting the WH.

We also have Lieberman’s little trip to talk to Sibelius at HHS last week. Connecticut had been promised half a million doses of vaccine by the end of October. It got 180,000. Lieberman announced, after his talk with Sibelius, that HHS would see CT would get 100,000 more doses within days.

It’s not surprising how Obama’s big donors get billions of our tax dollars in TARP/Bailout, and now the terrorists in Gitmo and these same TARP bankers get the vaccine when there still isn’t enough for the little people. Under Obama’s national socialism we’re all equal as animals, but some animals are more equal than others.

According to the manufavturer there is enough and if it were distributed by the manufacturer there would be no “shortage.” The problem is that our bungling socialist government has taken over distribution.

Of COUURSE they got special treatment! That is what being privledged MEANS! Just like when AIG Corp was given HUNDREDS of BILLIONS in bailout money, and IMMEDIATELY repaid 2 billion or so to Goldman Sachs! I am sure that life is quite nice.

Like to know if the below is happening in the USA or Europe. Heard rumors it is occurring in some western countries:

Haj Pilgrims, Frontline Staff To Get Priority

Nine hundred doses have been brought to Mecca and Medina for Brunei's haj pilgrims. Due to logistical problems, the pilgrims could not get the jabs in time before their departure. They would be given the flu shots in Mecca and Medina as required by the haj authorities in Saudi Arabia.

Now if the Saudi's aren't allowing them in without a shot, where are Muslims in this country, the UK, Germany and elsewhere getting the H1N1 vaccine to make the Haji?
