QUESTION for anyone to answer ...
I read elsewhere that Obama owns stock in (Ill. based) Baxter and that Baxter makes flu vaccines. I have googled it and searched and can't find info on it. Anyone know about this?
Is Baxter working on a vaccination for this swine/avian/human hybrid flu that is making the rounds????

Argh. My roommate just got a job at a Hospital.
Great news for me, eh?
Living with a guy who works in the most likely place of any to catch something, in a state that already has Swine flu infections!

Cleaning crews spent the day scrubbing down every desk, chair and classroom at a New York City high school. Infected students wore surgical masks as they recovered in their beds. Anxious parents woke their children at night to check their temperature.
The same strain of swine flu that was suspected in the deaths of 86 people in Mexico has infected at least eight students at a large Roman Catholic high school in Queens, and possibly more than 100.
About a dozen students from St. Francis Preparatory school apparently brought back the virus after spending a week in Cancun for spring break. All of the cases were mild.
Swine flu has been confirmed in at least 20 people in the U.S., also in Kansas, California, Texas and Ohio. Many of the victims had recently visited Mexico. The federal government declared a public health emergency to respond to the outbreak.

I would suggest a full quarantine of the Mexican nation, however brutal that may be. No one leaves Mexico until it is lifted, no exports, nothing can leave.
Things can go in and regular communications can be made to and from there, just that no one leaves or any material goods under any circumstances.
I would expect that things here in the US can more easily be contained with following proper procedures. While we move to contain things leaving Mexico, we can send in needed personnel, supplies, money, etc. until they can get this thing under control down there.

This is the real story. Was wondering what they were trying to hide with the torture stories. Keep an eye on this, and be sure to get you vitamins. Def. something to be concerned about.. Any virus that scares the cdc, is something to be concerned about..
Good luck everyone...
A group of seniors from St. Francis Prep in Fresh Meadows took the trip over Easter hiatus two weeks ago. Days later, an outbreak of flu-like symptoms erupted at the school, leaving about 200 kids complaining of flu-like symptoms.
On Friday, officials tested nine kids at the 2,700-student school after students complained of nausea, dizziness, headache and other symptoms resembling swine flu,

Ok let's apply empathy and logic here.
I am the PTB, and I have an agenda.
My agenda is to reduce the world's population to a more manageable and
sustainable number (let's say from 6 billion down to 500 million).
How can I achieve this goal?
1. Nuclear war = unacceptable
(no earning potential, too much collateral damage to eco-system, cannot geographically control or limit amount of ordinance)
2. Famine = unacceptable
(too great a cost to instigate, too many variables)
3. Global World War (non-nuclear) = unacceptable
(Whereas earning potential is great, control of participant's nuclear weapons
deployment is uncontrollable
4. Biological Weapon Deployment = acceptable!
(complete control of introduced virus; control and administration of
effective vaccine, control of placebo vaccine, foreknowledge and control of
specific genetically targeted traits of victims...HIGH earning potential)
This scenario has few variant factors and could easily be implemented
by a few powerful men. The men behind the ~real~ drug cartels (like
Baxter and Phizer) could even manipulate shipments of effective vaccines
to target areas near universities or select large cities, while routing
placebo (ineffective vaccine) to low income, low IQ areas, thereby ridding
the planet, and themselves, of "useless eaters" and leaving behind
(for the most part) intelligent, liberal, docile plebians to control and
