I think your information should be shared with the MSN.
There should be someone who works for the MSM that is not wishing to tell nothing but lies to the population.
People have the rigth to be informed and I think we all should start a movement to demand the government and the MSM to stop hiding everything from us.

PAX that is the exact theory I have had for the last few weeks and have been working on... I too believe there is 'some' link with Human immunodeficiency virus .... I didn't want to voice it on here [although I have hinted a few times] for fear of being laughed at.... But I have been keeping notes and they all take me back to HiV.

Who needs Obamas national health care to take over the health care system.
The government has already taken it over, when they dictate what the doctors can do.
This is sick. All to protect the economy. Does not matter if people die.
Daughter feeling bad this morning, and I am coughing. Got my zicam out again and ozone machine on hoping this does not go to pnemonia. Did not get much sleep, was up with her most of the night.
I wanted to keep her from school the last two weeks and husband would not let me, and now this. I do not understand why they did not close that school down when so many from her school are sick. The day before she was sick, she was at school they had a big water slide that all the kids there played on all day.
How many more are infected. The Lady I spoke to in the ER whose daughter was also ill, her school had a field day all day , kids outside it this horrid heat, and getting each other sick. It has been over 100 with humidity.
I was lived when my daughter came home all sunburn and told me they would not let her indoors when she was feeling bad. She started feeling sick that day at school. They did not even tell us that day that the kids would be out all day , or I would have given her sunblock at least. They just sent a note saying there was a surprise for the kids and for them to wear shorts.
I feel for all people on here who's kids are going through this like myself, and no one is doing anything to prevent this. I still do not know if that bad stomach thing we had first was related to this or not and this is another round or what.
My daughter also who had straight A's did not get her A honour roll this year because I pulled her out of school for a week when she had the stomach thing and they grade on attendence! In this state they do that because they get funding by how many days the kids are there! It was not fair. She worked so hard, and she is punished for being ill. The whole thing has be irate and I want to go scream at someone and do not know who to scream at.
Swine Flu Hits Sick People the Hardest: CDC
WEDNESDAY, May 20 (HealthDay News) -- Underscoring the belief that the new H1N1 swine flu is no more dangerous than regular flu, U.S. health officials said Tuesday that those hospitalized with the infection who have underlying health problems fare worse than otherwise healthy people who also have been hospitalized.
In an early release of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, California health authorities assessed 30 people hospitalized for the H1N1 swine flu. One difference between these patients and patients with seasonal flu was their average age. At 27, the swine flu patients were much younger than most patients with seasonal flu who required hospitalization.
HIV and the new flu strain could also mix together in a dangerous way, as has occurred with HIV and tuberculosis, the WHO said in guidance for health workers on its website. "Although there are inadequate data to predict the impact of a possible human influenza pandemic on HIV-affected populations, interactions between HIV/AIDS and A(H1N1) influenza could be significant," it said.
