So the drama begins. Putting the fear into the American population so they get the vaccines.

" SWINE flu could infect as much as half of the US population this northern hemisphere fall and winter and cause up to 90,000 deaths, President Barack Obama's science advisors warned today.

Laying out a "plausible scenario'' for the epidemic's impact in the US the report painted a grim picture of stress on the US health care system as it struggles to cope with a flood of flu patients.

The epidemic's resurgence could "produce infection of 30-50 per cent of the US population this fall and winter, with symptoms in approximately 20-40 per cent of the population (60-120 million people), more than half of whom would seek medical attention,'' the report said."

What is the Swine flu? Is this something that has to do with Peta?

There You go! This swine flu is nothing more than a False Flag attack. I full on believe it is for long term population control. They will scare us into submission, and not back down from the ratcheted up control mechanisms.

May. You've got to love the scientist babble.

They can say pretty much anything they like, while still covering their asses.

If anything goes pear shaped they can cover themselves with jargon.

Yeah, and to stop 90,000 deaths they'll kill a huge percentage of the population with a vaccine.

Wonderful plan isn't it.

How many have died in the US to date? Five? The seasonal flu kills 36,000 - almost all very elderly or immuno-compromised.

Eat fruits and vegetables. Take a multi-vitamin. I don't know if herbs help. I'm on turmeric right now I'm not starting anything else until this experiment is over - overwise how do I know which one made a difference?

Seriously if this is a man-made attempt at population control it is really lame. Sure, more people have died in places with poor sanitation, but not enough really for any kind of depopulation agenda. Now if the vaccine starts sterilizing people, I'll take it all back. Virus itself is not impressive.

Half of US population may get swine flu

This just in!!!!

"Aliens may land on white house lawn and abduct several dozen blades of grass!"

"World War 3 might break out sometime this year! Or maybe next year! Or the year after that!"

"The human race could possibly all simultaneously spontaneously combust!"

"It's remotely possible that God may be looking down on all of this with quiet amusement!"

"It may be possible that some number of people may or may not experience some degree of change in their lives due to events, perhaps unforeseen, which might cause something to happen to them, or perhaps someone they know, or maybe somebody else in a manner that may or may not be predicted at this time!!!"

Head for hills!!!

Just some interesting regular flu facts for you guys to peruse:


Americans. At the same time, CDC claims 36 000 Americans annually die from flu.
What is going on?
Meanwhile, according to the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS),
"influenza and pneumonia" took 62 034 lives in 2001—61 777 of which were
attributed to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was flu virus positively
identified. Between 1979 and 2002, NCHS data show an average 1348 flu deaths per
year (range 257 to 3006).

CDC's model calculated an average annual 36 155 deaths from influenza associated
underlying respiratory and circulatory causes (JAMA 2003;289: 179-86
[Abstract/Free Full Text]). Less than a quarter of these (8097) were described as flu
or flu associated underlying pneumonia deaths. Thus the much publicised figure of
36 000 is not an estimate of yearly flu deaths, as widely reported in both the lay and
scientific press, but an estimate—generated by a model—of flu-associated death.
William Thompson of the CDC's National Immunization Program (NIP), and lead
author of the CDC's 2003 JAMA article, explained that "influenza-associated
mortality" is "a statistical association between deaths and viral data available." He
said that an association does not imply an underlying cause of death: "Based on
modelling, we think it's associated. I don't know that we would say that it's the
underlying cause of death."
Yet this stance is incompatible with the CDC assertion that the flu kills 36 000
people a year—a misrepresentation that is yet to be publicly corrected.

You gotta love it.
