There needs to be a national medical emergency on cancer, aids, and hiv where the world spends there time working on those cures and vaccines more than anything else......

The reality is that anyone who takes the FluMist vaccine can spread the disease for up to 21 days.

Our daughter, goes by the name Cookie Doodle here has a flu. We don't know if it's 'that' flu. They wont' test. She has asthma and so my wife is keeping a close eye on her. Her fever has been bouncing between 103 - normal for 4 days.
If your daughter has a fever, sore throat, couph. the probability is 99.9% sure she has H1N1. Our doctor said all flu's are all Swine flu...
If they refuse to test,, demand Tamiflu

Interesting timing indeed! In large part because I seem to have fallen ill over the past few days with a particularly nasty virus that very well could be the Swine Flu.
Here is the thing though. I never get sick. I live alone and work at home and have almost no face to face human contact on a day to day basis and no physical human contact at all what so ever.
I first started having symptoms later Thursday night early Friday morning. Yesterday I couldn’t stop sneezing, often 10 to 15 violent sneezes in a row followed by a period of calm that would only last a moment or two only to repeat itself. My eyes were blood shot to the core to the point that even after dousing them with visine I felt compelled to wear sunglasses into the super market to hide them. As I did some brief shopping clutching a wad of Kleenex trying my best to hold off sneezing attacks it was obvious to everyone who worked there and the customers I was very sick with something. I slept about 16 hours last night and am just dragging myself out of bed; while I slept it has crept into my lungs. It didn’t come on like a cold or flu but a bizarre and severe allergy attack. I can’t say for certain it’s the Swine Flu as I have not been to a Doctor and there is little chance I will go to one unless I am in a coma and some Good Samaritan stumbles across my unconscious form. What ever it is, it has a rapid onset of a violent and urgent nature and despite the fact that I take very good care of myself with exercise, vitamins and plenty of rest and a healthy diet it has struck hard and fast.
Once again though here is the thing, there is absolutely no reason for me to be sick. I live in sunny and warm Miami.
I haven’t shook anyone’s hand or kissed anyone or hugged anyone. I am not in close contact with anyone. Every place I encounter other people it’s at a distance of at least a few feet that separates physical forms and always in well ventilated areas.
I am wracking my brain trying to figure out how I might have been infected with what ever I have been infected with. I can’t think of a reasonable explanation and the reason I am sharing this is because I can’t think of a reasonable explanation.
That Obama is choosing the same time to declare a medical emergency? A national medical emergency?
Makes a person wonder. I sure am.

You beat me to the punch and posted just about what I was going to write. Seem that anytime someone on ATS sees, "National Emergency", the automatically start to freak and geek.
What if they declared a National Emergency due to a snow storm?
