My theory is that it's the fact that our children depend on us and we're more likely to get them the vaccination (as opposed to the elderly, for
example) to protect them, and therefore pay the pharmaceutical companies and perhaps keep them from going under or "needing" a government bailout...
Plus, people with kids should probably get the vaccine so they don't take a chance with their kids!
If the push for vaccines targeted adults, we'd be more likely to think that we can tough it out or prevent ourselves from getting it. Or if it
targeted the elderly, many times, they have no one to take care of them and the government would end up paying for the shots. But our children...
well, they're our future. They need us to take proper care of them. Having grandma die of the flu is bad enough, but having a child die of the flu is
much more devastating. And they spread it easily in schools...
I don't know, I was just thinking of a more likely scenario for a conspiracy theory than - Obama wants to take over the world so he's giving people
the flu so he can declare Martial law, so he can quarantine people and put troops in the street and then.... I don't know. I don't think people have
thought out that theory very well.
There's just no sense to it. As I've said, it's illogical and based on hysterial.
It makes rational sense to me that Big Pharma is taking advantage of a new flu strain by pushing its dangers (to children) to the public to sell the
vaccines in big numbers when it comes out. Like this:
Child deaths from Swine Flu continued to escalate as the U.S. Centers for Disease control reported a “steep” rise in number of visits to
doctors across 46 states from the flu epidemic.
Swine Flu has been confirmed to be the cause of death of 9 children during the week of Oct. 11 to Oct. 17 while two other children also died
from influenza A but the virus was not subtyped, although it is suspected to be Swine Flu.
So they're saying that 9 kids died from Swine Flu in a week. 36,000 people
from the regular flu every year. That's nearly 700 people a week if it was spread out over the whole year! 1400 a week if it's spread out over the 6
fall/winter months. Nine in a week is hardly noticeable.
A "steep rise" in Dr. visits could be from Janey's runny nose and mom being afraid it's the Swine Flu.
I also find it interesting that this article lists the 46 states where "influenza like illness activity" has increased. They list 46
... Wouldn't it be easier to list the 4 where the activity didn't increase? But then you wouldn't have the shock impact of seeing your
state listed as a "danger area"... The first thing people are going to do is look for their state on that list.
I don't personally think Swine Flu is worse than any other flu. It may be more contagious. I think it's just another flu. So, while I'm being
careful by taking my immune-strengthening herbal tincture and using hand sanitizer, etc, I'm not overly concerned about this flu. In fact, from what
I've heard, I'd rather get it than the regular flu.
I suspect Obama declared this National Emergency under some pressure from Big Pharma and the CDC. And also he might be a little concerned that it may
actually break out and become epidemic. In that case, we'd want to make sure the ducks were in a row to get people help and get meds to people who

I agree, marg. We need to look at it. With a suspicious, logical, open mind. Not by losing our heads and freaking out and running, screaming in the
That serves no one. This targeting of Obama as being behind it all and trying to take over the world by flu is just distracting us from
likely what we should be looking at. Follow the money.
Let me apologize to endisnighe for rambling on about logic and such.
