flu over Cuckoo's nest

Sorry I aint been posting to regularly, but best believe I’ve been writing : going over my next book of short stories and finalizing these plays, and writing a screen play called TOOL MAN SON. But with that said, creativity fosters more appreciation within this soma than sharing my erudite yet terse toilet sitting on contrived ruminations on current discourse. But I have to drop a few lines on this Swine Flu stuff, since all my folks been asking my recommendation as a scientist about the shots being handed out like free bubble gum.

It just strikes me as strange that the swine flu is renamed and talked up all of a sudden as if it was Ali vs. Frazier I. Government officials all across the country have been running around as if the sky is falling. They have been doing everything from rewriting disaster plans and stocking up on masks and even drugs that they don’t even know will work. More than half of Germans indicate that they do not want to take the shot and recently, here in the US, we have found out that our federal government has paid Novartis (based in Switzerland) and GlaxoSmithKline (UK) more than 400 million for vaccines made with adjuvant (a substance which isn't approved by the Food and Drug Administration).

The swine flu virus, which is now called H1N1, may infect up to half the U.S. population. Thus a justification for all the loot already spent/wasted on the make believe pandemic. The feds have already sent $350 million to state and local governments, $90 million to assist hospitals and emergency rooms get ready. Add to this that Obama wants to The Obama administration will spend an additional $2.7 billion to buy swine flu vaccines, that we don’t even know if they will work.

All this fro0nting really makes me speculate that something else is going on, mean when was the last time folks in America spoke of forcefully quarantine people in the event of a Swine Flu pandemic. The "Pandemic Response Bill" would allow the state to forcefully quarantine people in the event of an outbreak plus even put folks in jail and fine them for $1000 a day if they refuse to comply. It would also let health providers forcefully vaccinate folk without their permission and authorize forcible entry into private homes for such purposes.

My concern, at least one of them is that the seasonal-flu kills more folks and infects more folks annually than this flu and don’t get no love – it like some body wants this in the news for reason yet to be discerned from my peanut sized brain. Then they don’t know how many shots will be required. It could consist of two shots but no matter what, you know it will be given to at-risk populations first. Truth is Obama nor scientist actually know if the vaccine will do anything, to prevent or minimize the flu. Not to mention will likely contain a form of mercury called thimerosal. It has also been asserted that this new form of the wine flu is also birds as well as humans. Yes it is or maybe the result of human laboratory manipulation encompassing the North American avian flu and a form of human flu. I also want to what is the rush and why is it that Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is so anxious to get this vaccine out on the market?

I still remember the last time the US had an outbreak when mass vaccinations led cases of a rare disease called Guillain-Barre syndrome – which temporarily paralyzes parts of the nervous system. Not to mention this may all be a sign of the chickens coming home to roost. Especially if the article I read in nature about five years ago was true - the one that described how a team of US scientist lead by Dr Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin manipulated the 1918 "Spanish" flu pandemic virus to make a new killer Flu virus. So to me all of this is foul, impractical and borders on quackery to me. Giving out a virus that is rushed to be developed and placed on the market because of a media campaign is not smart nor scientifically supported. Moreover, I would like to accept my warnings from other scientist not me and not politicians or elected/appointed public health officials who could not tell the difference between mutation and selective adaptation. So when folks ask me, I don’t go Cuckoo of getting this vaccine and tell them “I wouldn’t get it.” Maybe wrong, but I feel better knowing I have used reasoning to decide such over fear.

I find it crazy how the gvmt has caused such a frenzy of fear in everyone. I wish you well on your recent endeavors.

They will have to force it in me if I get it.

I have never had a flu shot and I won't start this year. I can think of two times in my life I had the actual flu.

I wonder, exactly, what their game is. It makes me almost believe there is something horrible planned around these sticks.

I am not taking a flu shot. I never have before and I do not plant to do so now. The Feddies can bring it on if they want to-but if I'm not going to take a shot.

My oldest son had Guillian Barre. He was seven years old when it struck. It is one thing to read about a disease-it is another thing to actually have it happen to you or a loved one.

I thought my child was going to die. He went from being healthy and mobile to a child who was struggling just to take every breath. He was in the hospital for six weeks. One week was in ICU and he had to have assistance with breathing because his lungs were so weak. We brought him home in a wheelchair-no one knew if he would ever walk again or not. Plus he had to go through months of physical therapy. He did attend school that year. I was so afraid that he wasn't going to make it.

One of his friend's mom was stricken with it and she died from it. Mini polio is no joke. While it is not "contagious" it is one helluva a disease. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. People really need to read up on it. I've heard a drug ad on television that cites Guillian Barre as a possible side effect-I would urge anyone not to take the damn drug at all-it could kill you.

I immediately pick up on the hype and wasn't buying it.

In fact you did a post not very long ago when the media first started reporting about the swine flu striking up in, where was it, Mexico? If the money being made off this mess isn't enough to catch ones' eye then you can kiss the baby!

But the most interesting thing about this post for me is the title. I love your creativity in tying titles and subject matter together. That is what called me to your site initially and is one of the many things that keep drawing me. This title references what happens to be one one my favorite books and movies. Damn, am I kissing the ring?

I agree 10000% All-Might-T! I refuse to get injected with that shit. We don't know what this shit is. Sheeple will believe anything they hear on TV. *smh*

I'm not and never have been one to take a flu shot. If I were in a high-risk group I MIGHT get the regular flu shot, but there is no way in hell I would be the test-dummy for the H1N1 vaccine that you so clearly pointed out no one knows if it will even work!

My biggest concern for my family is the ones who are pregnant now. Their doctors are pushing this vaccination at them like crazy. I say don't do it!

You never know what that stuff will do to you or your fetus, especialy when it's pretty much never been used before. Crazy.

ANGELINA said...

I work in a major hospital in LA (celebrities like to have their babies here and such) and they are making us consult with a nurse before declining the flu shot. I've never had a flu shot and I've never had the flu...I've also never been coerced into getting any sort of vaccination. What's funny is that many of the doctors here are NOT getting the flu shot this year...isn't that interesting? The scare tactics are ridiculous!
