FYI: Briefly and I mean literally from almost across the room chatted with someone at the gym who has a place down at Corpus Christi on the Texas coast.
She and her husband have been "sick as dogs" for a week after going down there,you ask why she's in the gym? She's an idiot IMO.

Told me that almost everyone she knows in their commuinty there is/has been reallly sick with "something"that sure sounds like it might be our friend Swiney.

I asked why she didn't just stay home and she replied "It's all just made up suff about the damn flu and I'm not going to worry about it."

Great....I literally dosed myself,my vehicle,and everything else with santizer and am going to call ahead to see if she's there before going for a while.

cant remember what they are, but i could buy 2% or even a bit higher.
It would take a LOT of digging through the thread to find the numbers from that far back.

Your story is fascinating, and quite emblematic of the thinking at large right now. People are getting sick (or know of others who are getting sick) yet refuse to believe that there might be a problem or that anything is out of the ordinary. In your story specifically, it's kind of mind-blowing regarding the level of disconnect going on right now. Is it that people have become far too complacent, or has hiding your head in the sand become part of our national character? It's all really disturbing.

Whether the next great upheaval of our society comes along via natural or man made/manipulated means, it seems that it will only take minimum effort to gain maximum results. The best we can all do right now is to look out for ourselves and our own, and not rely on anyone else (ESPECIALLY the gub'mint.) Good luck to us all.

I'm an optimist and see the good in people/organisations. Usually.

Until I see evidence that points to the contrary.

I'd like to think that governments/WHO/CDC/MSM etc all have valid reasons for not making the public more aware of the H1N1 situation.

I haven't seen undisputed evidence so say otherwise. BUT....

...where's theres smoke theres fire.

There is definitely something not right with this picture. There is too many things not adding up.

Right at the beginning of this thread someone was making the comment of "follow the money" or something. I think this concept can definitely be applied in this case....

This pandemic WILL make certain organisations very very RICH & POWERFUL at the expense of killing/sickening a lot of people.

If this agenda is correct, it seems from the information on this thread that it is all working perfectly for them, and they are strategically playing this situation well.

Meanwhile people are sick and being treated like pawns.

I agree that people are complacent these days..I take it as people really are afraid to think with their own minds and rather just be part of the herd..Ya dont wanna be the odd one out do ya?

I would like have been around in the 50's to see how people would handle this..

As I mentioned earlier in the thread I have been sick with flu for a while now. I went to the doctor again yesterday and was asked to come in again today for some tests. While she was taking my blood I asked if they've had any cases in the area and whether that was one of the tests they are doing. I was told that I can't possibly have swine flu and that we don't have it here so they won't be testing me... however... I was then escorted to an empty room to wait while they phoned the department of health!!! Why do that if what they've just told me is true??? While waiting I could overhear the consultation going on in the next room and it was someone talking to the doctor about swine flu saying she thinks she has it. I asked why they had to phone the department of health if its definitely not swine flu and she replied that they have to do that because I mentioned swine flu... which of course just doesn't add up... are the doctors supposed to call in every mention of it in conversation. Very strange. I was sent home and told to stay home for a week with a follow up consultation next week to review my blood tests results.

Dreamseeker had mentioned doing a live internet radio thing and I had been thinking of doing a skype conference to record for ATS media in order to provide an easy way for people to get current. We have a lot of new people coming into the thread and it's so massive now we're having to go back over old info quite a bit.

I U2U'd dreamseeker about partnering up but he /she is doing something already though I've asked if they would like to play the role of co-host for my broadcast.

I'd like to be in the "interviewed" role more than the "host" role to discuss the info I've managed to get and share and switch to more of a "host" role to interview some of the participants from the thread like Clouds and others who also have sources inside the CDC / WHO.

It would be great for the people from the thread to participate, especially those of you who have had the flu or cared for someone who has had it or currently has it.

So, I could use a decent "co-host" , please U2U me if you're interested and have a decent voice for podcasting. Please take into consideration if you have any concerns about it, fear the powers that be and all that stuff prior to starting.

I can set up a skype conference and provide a regular phone line as well for people who just want to call in. I'll have to look into doing that and what's involved and make sure my recording studio is all set up on this end.

I could use some help from a mod so I can list the info in here without breaking any rules and have it added to the ATS podcasting. I'd like to do it at a time when everyone can participate regardless of location and work and so on. I'm going to aim for late at night USA Central time, suggestions as to best time for our UK members would be most welcome. My goal is to do this tomorrow or Friday.

Adults Older Than 52 May Resist Swine Flu, CDC Says

I understand the specious rationale but damn,this will really instill a flippin' "false sense of security" to that sector of the population who is typically MORE affected and I think it stinks to actually throw a number out there like it was written in blood or something.

Population-pruning at it's finest continues...sighing here.

From what I understand, about 30 min. of sun without sunscreen before 10 a.m. or after 3 p.m. would be the optimal way to get natural vitamin D.

Yes.... that is the safest way..... I'd go for more than 30 though... and it has to be more than just arms and legs out kind of thing

People older than 52 lived through a previous H1N1 epidemic and may have immunity from the previous exposure. It's a bit of a non story anyway considering that age group is not really at the high end of risk from this virus.

Infants and Children are highest risk group followed by adults 42 years of age and younger. The difference in these people being the strength of the immune response.

My state of health and smoking habit may have saved me from death by pig flu.

I can tell you how people in the 50's would have handled this type of situation. I was a young child at the time.

Polio was a killer and a crippler and there was no vaccine for it. My mother would not allow my brother and I to go to the community pool or any other large gathering. She was very careful with us.

Needless to say we felt Mom was terrible for not letting us have fun like all the other neighborhood kids were.

There were just as many sheeple then as there are now. Thankfully my parents took the red pill long ago.

Study questions inactivated flu vaccine efficacy in children

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend annual influenza vaccination for all children aged six months to 18 years.
The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (3rd revision) also recommends annual flu vaccination of asthmatic children older than six months.
In order to determine whether the vaccine was effective in reducing the number of hospitalizations that all children, and especially the ones with asthma, faced over eight consecutive flu seasons, the researchers conducted a cohort study of 263 children who were evaluated at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota from six months to 18 years of age, each of whom had had laboratory-confirmed influenza between 1996 to 2006. The investigators determined who had and had not received the flu vaccine, their asthma status and who did and did not require hospitalization. Records were reviewed for each subject with influenza-related illness for flu vaccination preceding the illness and hospitalization during that illness.
They found that children who had received the flu vaccine had three times the risk of hospitalization, as compared to children who had not received the vaccine. In asthmatic children, there was a significantly higher risk of hospitalization in subjects who received the TIV, as compared to those who did not (p= 0.006). But no other measured factors—such as insurance plans or severity of asthma—appeared to affect risk of hospitalization.
“While these findings do raise questions about the efficacy of the vaccine, they do not in fact implicate it as a cause of hospitalizations,” said Dr. Joshi. “More studies are needed to assess not only the immunogenicity, but also the efficacy of different influenza vaccines in asthmatic subjects.”
