Alabama, too? Thanks for alerting me to this Joe.
I still don't see any direct link to H1N1! If nothing else, this is about fear among school officials. Let me recant what happened to me a few months
In my present job, I function more as a driver than a line worker. I was the driver on a road trip to a job site in another state, along with another
driver. At the last minute I got a call from my boss. My boss informed me there was a problem because the other driver had been to the hospital and
was told he may have had swine flu. Everyone else was demanding he be taken off the trip or they would not go. I personally didn't care, but was told
that this person didn't want to go but was being forced to go while sick, so I agreed to side with the other workers to force him off the
I saw him at another job site about a month later. He was LIVID! He never was told he had the swine flu; he had a fricking cold! He went to the
hospital to see a friend and was coughing and sneezing when he came out, and someone spotted him. The rest was just another day at the rumor mill. He
had lost a week's wages because he was not only taken off that schedule, but off several more. And not to mention, as drivers, our bread and butter
are these out-of-state jobs that come along only occasionally.
Fear, people, fear. It's the real enemy. Think back on your life; how many times have you been sick for a day or two? I rarely get sick, but even I
can think of a few times. Now ask yourself: did you survive? Of course you did! Now, which are you going to listen to: the doctors and big pharma, who
have so much to gain if that shot makes you sick enough to need more medicine, or your own experiences?
Unfortunately, many of those presently in charge of our educational system are those who fear.
