    My thoughts are that its just the flu, this is being blown out of proportion because theres nothing else to report on. Of course its spreading fast....its the flu!! and it came from mexico and we have lots of illegals coming in from there. Grab a tissue and see you back to work in two weeks.

    Must be a down market for the medicine companies, lol, now we will have all kinds of new diseases.......lets see, next I think they should start a rumor about Chinese Duck Fever, then African Hippo Skin Disease, Camel Foot Fungus, Australian Bush Disease...., give me a contract on marketing, they could make a killing. :confused2: I think this was all started by Tamaflu......who is out to make millions in a down market....

    My question is, why isnt this more potent, than the regular flu? Looks to me like it is not even as strong.....every year we have people die in greater numbers from the regular flu, all this hype....

    Okay, if not the economy, what about a pandemic? A great opportunity for universal (socialist?) health care.

    I had to get an oil change yesterday and while waiting I was reading an article on the swine flu. Im not sure if it was time or another mag. It had a pic of a metal gate with a pig snout sticking out of it. This virus is a cross between the human influenza, swine influenza and bird flu. It allows the virus to jump species which makes it hard to contain and easier to spread.

    It's a media refocus. Obama's popularity is falling.
    The messiah needs to reborn into the saviour of the people.

    To put it all into perspective, read about how many people die from just flu related causes every year. We got one dead from the swine flu plague.
