Are you afraid of the Greggery Peccary*'s flu**? What do you think of it: shit happens, mother nature's sign, bio warfare and control over the masses, conspiracies? Step forward and express yourselves....

I'm more afraid of forced vaccinations and martial law than the swine flu.

I'm not worried. That stuff only happens to other people.


(I have alot of faith in my ability to handle contaigeous diseases. I made it through the original swine flu epidemic a couple of decades ago, SAARS, and lordy knows what else I picked up living in the West Indies.)

Nope. It'll blow over just like SARS.

The only persons who should be overly concerned are those with respiratory problems. Unfortunately that is me, but I am not likely to come into contact with flu victims, since I don't have an outside job at this time. As a precaution I'll get some echinacia and zinc. If I start to get sick that should help to lessen the effect. Otherwise, what will be, will be.

St. Francis Prep RCHS is not that far from where I live.
Lots of my friends graduated from that school 30 years ago.
These outbreaks are nothing to laugh at.

While it's spring and the weather is superb I don't think I'll take my two
girls out to play over at Flushing Meadow today for all I know that kid next to them on the slide
or running around in the sprinklers could have that flu.

I don't know if afraid is the right word, maybe very concerned. I just read an article saying we were due for another pandemic flu and it's inevitable. "When it does occur the impact will be enormous:1.9 million deaths,90 mil. sick,and nearly 10 mil. hospitalized with almost 1.5 mil requiring intensive care units in the US." It went on to say it could last up to 2 years.
^^that quote is from RN magazine volume 71 number 10 Oct. 2008

There have been pandemic flu's in 1957 and 1968 and 1918.

Everybody: WASH YOUR HANDS.

Wow that's funny, RN can predict what a randomly mutating virus will do with astounding accuracy!! Not about scaring people into getting their yearly mercury injection is it!!!

And how many mutations does the flu virus go through each day? Just wondering how they could predict such a random process with such astonishing accuracy!

That quote is by the World Health Organization and it's in the RN magazine not by them but maybe you can email them with your sarcasm.
It's all about how you look at things. You can think they're selling products thru fear or do something to prevent the flu.

The point is we are DUE for another pandemic.

Perhaps some background info on the vaccination eugenics agenda is needed. Star here.
