Sorry, guys. I had to run out for a bit. By the way, HX3, thanks for covering the Chronicle for me! Anyway, I have a personal story regarding the flu from my errands this morning.

My daughter did something really stupid and was sent to alternative school for the rest of the school year. This morning I had to take her to this school for registration. While filling out all of the forms, I was close enough to hear two women in the office talking about the recent flu outbreak. They mentioned a few children by name, saying they had a really bad case of the flu. Then one actually asked the other, "If the kids come in the office with flu symptoms, should we send them home?"

I couldn't think of anything other than WOW. These were people in charge of making sure this virus is not spread among school children, and they actually had to debate sending symptomatic children home!! I did mention on my way out that the POTUS had recommended schools closing if there were any sick children in attendence, but I honestly don't think they were very concerned. Amazing.

Thirty-Six Thousand People Do Not Die Each Year from "Regular Flu" (Confirmed)
Thursday, April 30, 2009 by: Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Read just about any news report on swine flu deaths, and you'll come across a line that claims "36,000 people die each year from flu-related causes." It sounds authoritative. It's even a nice, round number. But where is this number coming from? And is it based on any actual science?

This statistic is being paraded around by almost everybody, as if to say that swine flu isn't so bad because regular flu kills so many people each year anyway.The truth is that the only standard by which the CDC and WHO are quoting deaths from swine flu is if they are confirmed deaths from a particular viral strain. To them, if a death has not been confirmed in their labs, it does not count as a death from that flu.
Catch that everyone? Only confirmed deaths count!

This explains some of the discrepency by MSM media reporting, and CDC and WHO counts!

Hummmm......

The Swine Flu Crisis Lays Bare the Meat Industry's Monstrous Power


The Mexican swine flu, a genetic chimera probably
conceived in the faecal mire of an industrial pigsty, suddenly threatens to give the whole world a fever. The initial outbreaks across North America reveal an infection already travelling at higher velocity than did the last official pandemic strain, the 1968 Hong Kong flu.

If that's true, then the 1918 strain is the Granddaddy of the current strain. Using what we know about genetic mutations and evolution, this strain should be more suitably adapted and possibly stronger than its origins. Very scary.

And...for those of you who are not conspiracists! Here a lovely little article about the origins of this novel flu!

Swine flu source spawns wild theories:


Dead pigs in China, evil factory farms in Mexico and an Al Qaeda plot involving Mexican drug cartels are a few wild theories seeking to explain a deadly swine flu outbreak that has killed up to 176 people.

Nobody knows for sure but scientists say the origins are in fact far less sinister

Awwww man....they left out hybridization of flu virus by Reptilians/NWO for population reduction (as predicted by the Mayans)....

Sorry...couldn't resist. Seriously though, until they come up with something concrete, we will continue to question the origins.

And this just in! It is official!


Name change from WHO!
WHO changes flu virus strain name from swine flu

The World Health Organization (WHO), bowing to pressure from meat industry producers and concerned governments, said on Thursday it would refer to a deadly new virus strain as influenza A (H1N1) not swine flu.

"From today, WHO will refer to the new influenza virus as 'influenza A (H1N1)'," it said in a brief announcement posted on its www.who.int/en/ website .

Swine flu: 'All of humanity under threat', WHO warns

The World Health Organisation has warned that "all of humanity is under threat" from a potential swine flu pandemic and called for "global solidarity" to combat the virus.
The plea came as the WHO raised the swine flu threat awareness level to 5 out of 6, indicating that the world is on the brink of a pandemic.

No cases in Oklahoma, the guy they were testing in Muskogee tested negative which is good. I am surprised though no cases in Oklahoma we border Texas.
