Don't take this as an attempt to start a new conspiracy theory. I have some background in the medical world.
Any country, particularly the US, would benefit tremendously if there was an epidemic to which the elderly were most vulnerable. All people die eventually, and something like half their medical costs of a lifetime go to the last few months of their life.
That said, if something like a million people died enmasse instead of living their full expectancy into their 80s and 90s, the savings for the government, employers, the health system, and all around, who be enormous.
A company like GM is obligated to pay lifetime health costs for something like a million people right now, mostly pensioners and their wives. They would be saddened but not displeased if many of these people had their lives shortened by a decade or so.
I think most will get the gist of my reasoning.
Now if only those brilliant bioengineers can come up with something credible that is fatal primarily with people in their 70s and upward. Maybe they're working on it. Maybe their testing it right now.

Stock up on MMS. It's cheap, it works, it lasts a long time, it's easy to administer, etc..

There is one very small point that you are overlooking here. The elderly also use more pharmaceuticals than anyone else (most take 6-10 pills daily) and the pharmaceutical companies probably could care less where the money came from (insurance, medicare or where ever). So they in turn lobby the government (I believe they are the largest group represented by lobbyist) and of course our representatives would never sell out their own country or taxpayer money just to line their own pockets would they? (bank bailouts?)

Here is what I don't get. I think we are all pretty much in agreement that there is some extremely shady stuff going on. In their own documents they talk about it. Many many conspiracy laden events continue to happen. So why then go to all the trouble with the set-up like the miac report about right wing "extremists" and the mandatory community service and the crashing of the economy, why then wipe us out with a pandemic flu? It makes no sense to me. It would explain things we've heard about like the trains, and the camp for people needing to be "quarantined" for lack of taking the flu shot or whatever. But the rest of it. All the preparation just to wipe us out in such a random fashion? I just don't get it.

Classes have been suspended in Mexico city at all levels and in all schools Private and public. Also in the Metropolitan area.
Sick People are advised not to go to work tomorrow, They are vaccinating the whole medical staff of hospitals and health related people.
THE VIRUS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY THE USA AND CANADA AS A NEW STRAIN.
They are giving instructions that nobody should shake hands, kiss, kiss on the cheek salutations, use surgical mask if posible and wash hands etc.
The president and the whole staff were reunited for 4 hours today so I guess this is pretty bad.
Ill keep you posted.
Hope they get this strain in check, for the benefit of a LOT of people.
The U.S. cases are unusual, because it appears none of the patients had contact with pigs, and the virus is one that health officials have never seen before.
No cases of this swine flu have yet been found in Canada. The country's national laboratory in Winnipeg is analyzing 51 samples from Mexico to determine if any of them are swine flu and are linked to the U.S. cases. Results are expected in two days.
New virus raises spectre of pandemic
If the link is made, it may signal the emergence of a new pandemic virus, infection control specialist Dr. Michael Gardam, told CBC News in an interview Thursday night.
"It certainly is suspicious that you have a new strain of swine flu showing up just north of the Mexican border, and you have an outbreak of cases south in Mexico," he said.
"We already have the Americans talking about the H1N1 strain, which is a new strain they haven't seen before .… If you had evidence that this strain was also in Mexico, you would have further evidence that something new has shown up which has the ability to go person-to-person and has crossed borders as well."

They're starting now are they? How kind of them!
Not unlike Sars in the severity of the symptoms, and we all know where that lovely thing came from!!!! If this starts to cause death, then its going to be time to take organize the end of the governments. And take them all out. That will be their response to their martial law, their pandemics. They go down and every single neocon they supported must be rounded up and investigated and sentenced for crimes against humanity as well.
