I've been hearing about it everday, but I also live a piss shot away from Imperial county where a few cases have been reported.

Actually it might be a foot in the door for the return of extreme rightwing paramilitary activity. Terrorism is on the decline, pirates are too sexy, but swine, easy to make the connection: those damn pinko piggies, they want to destroy America.

While we've been seeing that the NZ ministry of health has been handing out similar precautions, of course it is just to the sheep. :wink: :lol:

Huh? That's all that's on the news. Even at the time you posted that. The US media never passes up an opportunity to exploit fear, panic, and tragedy. Makes for good ratings.

Actually, at the time of the posting only CNN had a blurb. Not even a headline. NYTimes, Tribune, NPR, Fox, etc etc etc had nothing. Not until the next morning, actually. But you're right. Once they finally saw it as a chance to drum up ratings, it's now been turned into the next Black Death.

Next Up: Douchebag Anderson Cooper striking rock star/action man poses in front of health clinics in Mexico. :P

At the time I posted my brothers nor my sisters who read the papers and watch the news everyday even knew what the hell swine flu was. Since then its been a non stop assault of fear mongering at every opportunity. I checked the cdc's website right after I posted and it stated there wasnt a case since the 70's or 80's in the us and it didnt seem like a big deal. Now they have changed their site completely.
