Swine Flu concerns?

The only reason Swine flu is getting so much attention is that global warming is no longer making people money because it is bull *censored*. Swine flu is no more serious than the regular flu. 50.000 people die every year due to the regular flu. This is nothing but hype. I am sure Al Gore will start asking for donations for swine flu since his other gravy train has derailed.

You bet it's interesting:

Exec Orders 10990-11049 were signed by JFK in 1962. Anybody remember the Cuban Missile Crisis?

11921 was by Ford, 12148 (creating FEMA) by Carter, and 12656 by none other than Ronnie Ray-guns.

None by Obama. And, funny, I don't recall any screaming about them by the "libertarian right" during the last Administration. :roll:

The truth is, the country was taken over long ago. It just now seems many are waking from their sleep.

Correct, but a lot of them had an alarm clock provided by the Republican party set to go off on 1/20/09, and are all to happy to listen to the same hot air that has kept the policies of the last 30 years (40? 50?) in place.

It'll be interesting to see the results of NJ gov'ner election.

That's our plan, too. Beginning now, minimize outside contact.


I am terrified of contracting this flu mainly cause I have type 1 diabetes. I travel ( by service vehicle ) for work and I have decided to stop dining out.
I will eat out of a cereal box, if I have to, until I can receive the vaccine and two weeks or so for it to work in. I have been approved for the vaccine by my doct's office for later this week. We'll see....

Well I have had the flu and H1N1 vaccine and no repercussions yet. I feel fine. Michigan is putting a lot of energy into getting every one that wants it vaccinated. Indiana is playing catch-up, seems like the states could decide when they wanted to order the vaccine and Michigan was one of the first to order. Indiana was way down on the list. Me I'm glad I have taken it.

And my kid had the flu and no shot and surprisingly, he didn't drop dead instantly.

From the hysterical news coverage, I thought maybe a person would burst into flames the minute they got infected.

And unlike people who got the flu shot, my boy now has lifetime immunity to whichever strain of flu he was infected with.

And contrary to news reports, not every person who gets the flu has swine flu.

H1N1 is idiosyncratic (I think that's the word) -- most people are OK, but a few healthy people get a virulent viral pneumonia that is virtually untreatable, and no one knows who those few will be. H1N1 may not be killing more people than standard flu, overall, but it is killing young children and young adults who almost never die from other flu. 30+ percent of deaths are people with asthma. I have one son with asthma who also has lung damage from birth, so he is considered high-risk. He still has not been able to get the vaccine due to shortages.

The doctor gave our 8 year old the shot, as he has a history of lung infections. Our 4 year old did not get the shot, as she handles colds and flues better.

It has hit very close to home for us. A five year old boy who lived up the street from us died from H1N1 over the weekend. This was a seemingly healthy five year old with no known underlying conditions.

No one around our area can even get the shots, they have canceled all the flu shots/H1N1 stuff until they get a supply. :( Even the Dr's offices and health clinics can't even get the stuff.....just have to wait, I guess.
