They actually closed my school down for a week because of the swine flu (I believe it was an overreaction). I have relatives who caught the swine flu, bit they live a thousand miles from me and only one of them died, but that really was only because her immune system was almost non - existant, so, yeah, it was an overraction in America

On a an topical comedy programme, they showed an american news clip explaining that Barack Obama had declared the virus a national emergency.
After that, the presenter said that 'he only wanted to protect American kids. British kids didn't give a s***.'
Then you saw a clip and it was a British reporter that was outside a school, and behind him there were children wearing their grandparents' gas masks and holding their middle fingers up to the camera.
I am proud of my country and our ability to laugh in the face of... anything.

Either way, stomach flu is worse than this. Blah to the mass vaccination plan too, darned money grubbers.

Something tells me that conspiracies, they set up the flu on a victim and stated to spread the virus and set up the media to create news about the virus that uses propaganda, I see, Some media, and medical company ejects the virus in the nameless victim, then infects people while the media makes makes news about it then both the Media and medical company takes the profit and sends the money to secret government to create a new world order law? and making all human lives miserable. Try to get my picture, what I'm thinking.

Great Pict! I must say I have been one of those people who panicked:fear:. There are four "propabe cases" in my state. It scared me! But in the US or any other country for that matter(except Mexico, and the kid from mexico) it hasn't killed anyone. It really looks like it's just another strain of the regular flu.:thanks:

It's so funny and so true! Not only is swine flu a distraction from the steaming pile of shit that the economy has become, but it has successfully scared millions of people (with and without health insurance) into checking into hospitals, thus spending money. Well done, world!

I wouldn't worry too much about Swine flu tbh,i try to stay as positive as i can.Don't let this massive negative energy(fear) get into you. Corporate medias are trying to scare all(fear) of us into buying the medicines,vaccines,etc that the drug companies made,then they get profit.

As David Icke said: "Problem, reaction, solution." A form of mind control.


This one is working by strengthening the right wing who advocate hate speech since its blamed on 'mexican immigrants'. Except, where DID the pigs come from? US-owned farms in mexico to escape US health and wage laws.

It's also not strange to suggest that SARS was manufactured in America and spread to China and most of Eastern Asia by a single traveling "businessman".

There were 0 deaths in the US, suggesting the Center for Disease Control was more than prepared. Seemed the US just wanted to stir something up with Asia's economy.

Maybe they'll track the swine flu to Iran and use it as an incentive to invade.
