I have heard quarantine mentioned several times on the news today. If that happens your access to good medical will be limited to what the govt provides. Think about that!!!

You don't suppose that's why the government is trying so hard to convince people that there is a crisis?

Good point MMD. Bloody pig cold is what it is! Manufactured news. Pandemic hysteria to manipulate skulls full of mush and carbon footprints.

Some people get sick, so what? Good health, get well, don't illustrate your mental and emotional instability by wearing a mask and carrying a bottle of lysol around.

At least the news has changed from freaking:
twitter, going green, green, twitter, going green, twitter, going green, green, twitter, going green, twitter, going green, green, twitter, going green, twitter, going green, green, twitter, going green, twitter...

I've even heard more college students are watching TV news now more than ever, because everytime the word "green" or "twitter" is said, you gotta drink up. And if "twitter" and "green" are used in the same sentance, then its a shot of Jagermeister for ya! But tops is whenever "Gore" or "Obama" are used in the same sentance with "twitter" and "green."

Unbeleivable rubbish! That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

I am supposed to wear a mask in the winter and I do wear one in my shirt pocket when I visit the cardiologist. (if it is cold outside.)

I do carry hand sanitizer in a little spray pen and have for a long time. I do not intend to worry or change my plans though.

The biggest concern to me would be quarantine and martial law to enforce it!

Ah, Flora, so you're particularly interested in the drinkin' game, then is it? beer.gif

When a bubble-headed newsperson uses the words "Obama" (or "Gore") in the same sentence with "twitter" and "green", then bottoms up and sing this song as demonstrated on U Tube by the drunken Scotsman in Germany...

Toddler in Texas becomes 1st swine flu death in US, a 23-month-old toddler in Texas became the first confirmed swine flu death inside the US Officials say the death was in Houston.

Kathy Barton, a spokeswoman for the Houston Health and Human Services Department, said Wednesday that the child had "traveled" with family from Mexico to Brownsville in South Texas. The child became "then" ill in Brownsville and was taken to a Houston hospital.

Personally I do not buy that story. The child was in bad shape when seen in Brownsville or it would not have been transferred to Houston. The child was probably very ill when the family decided to come here!

It has also been determined that a hog farm in Mexico failed to maintain basic snitation requirements and caused the first case of swine flu. That "child" working on the farm survived. Again filth caused the outbreak!

The swine flu reached Austria. In Vienna a 28 years old woman will cured in a ICU. She came back just now from a travel to Mexico. A 23 years old woman is in a hospital in Steyr also with swine flu suspicion. She was in Mexico too and came back to Austria 9 days ago.

I am certain all of the cases can be traced back to someone from or returning from Mexico. Anyone who has seen Mexico other than the "tourist traps" knows the filth the Mexican people live in. That is why the death rate in children is so high there.

On a lighter note, I was listening to the radio this afternoon and they recommended that to avoid the swine flu we should avoid hugs and hand shakes. Those could be replaced by "elbow bumps" and gentle pats on the butt!

I just read two print news articles, both AP, that claim only 8 deaths out of the 168 in Mexico have been confirmed to be related to the swine flu! I also saw the same on MSNBC and Fox News.

That sure sounds like a "contrived" crisis.

I wonder why?!

In the interest of protecting pigs the WHO will no longer use the term "swine flu".

It will now be known as " H1N1 influenza A" which should prevent the needless slaughter of swine!

One must get ones priorities in proper order.

I heard on the news today (Dr Sanjay Gupta) that the "SWINE FLU" (the h#ll with Obama's numbered flu) started at a "mega hog farm" owned by Smithfield Farms of VA. They took advantage of NAFTA to get away from environmental restrictions in the US. They have obviously made a lot of people in Mexico ill and maybe caused the deaths of some. Now that the information is out, the Americans that run the operation and locals too are in grave danger. Though the govt there has no death penalty, the police conduct executions for lesser offenses.

Again, the problem goes back to GREED!!

I suppose it was just a matter of time till this happened!

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says telephone solicitors are telling people the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the Department of Homeland Security are requiring the purchase of the kits to test for the swine flu virus.

Zoeller said Friday the claims are false and the callers are "cynically exploiting people's fears in order to commit fraud.'' He says they may also be in violation of Indiana's telephone privacy laws, and anyone who has been contacted by such a solicitor should notify his office.
