I have to say that by posting what I am about to post, in no way means that I do not think the Swine Flu isn't or is a real threat to anyone. However, I will say that in comparison to the already available data on regular flu strains - anyone who is fearful of what the media is portraying as a threat... needs to do some research and stop eating up the obvious BULL, that is being fed to you.
The CDC, Centers for Disease Control posts all the stats associated with flu related deaths.
It is absolutely ridiculous that Obama and his administration is pledging so much of your tax money to fight this potential "pandemic" when averaged out, 7 people die every single hour of regular flu and pneumonia combined.... the same flu that it seems we dont have enough money or time to generate enough vaccines each year to combat... remember????
I just saw on the local news where a school is closing down starting today and through Monday for probable swine flu cases in SC.. Now this may be a good idea, but what logic is there behind it... when you look at the 20,000 deaths related to more ccmmon strains of influenza, that occur each and every year according to 2001 data. An excerpt "In the United States, approximately 25 percent of the population has flu-associated illness annually, leading to an average of 20,000 to 40,000 deaths per year". Total combined deaths of regular flu and pneumonia alone were recorded at 63,730 annually in 2001. Considering the annual lack of flu vaccinations available each year I would say that number has increased today.
Put your own brain to work and do your own research, unless you want to be controlled by the propaganda that you so readily gobble up...
