Please keep chat and one-liners to a minimum. This thread is intended to be a one-stop-shop for all of todays NEWS and info related to the Mexican Swine Flu.
To make it faster for everyone to catch up on the actual NEWS, PLEASE PLEASE minimize chat, jokes, bashing the administration, soapboxes, and so forth. These live threads can become useless monster threads if everyone throws in their one-liners, and we all have 'em! So let's try to keep this thread useful for the latest NEWS.
Thank you all in advance.
That is not an official gov statement, just a few doctors in Californicate advising their patients.
Hey you! Maybe I’m just jaded these days, but I’m not overly concerned about this situation. Certainly not going to alter KY Derby plans this week. :o)
Hiv come out in 81 or 82? I was only 4-5 years old then. Did the media panic then?
That was a song that Kenny Rodgers sang in the 60’s.
Live Freeper Influenza Thread ping :)
White house press conference questioner asked if Obama had been checked for swine flu. Answer was a bit muddled, so we’ll have to wait and see.
I am concerned about it all.
Truth is we have only a minimum of info so far to tell what is really going on. 48 hours from now will be a totally different world as far as how widespread the flu is and how the govt. lackeys will try and spin this to benefit the messiah.
Little surprise they would not answer a hard question on anything,it's not in their genes.(or on the teleprompter)
“Americans Told To Buy Masks:”
Certainly OUR government isn’t going to recommend or dole them out, even if they ARE needed. If they make too big a deal about this Americans will DEMAND the borders be secured and they are NEVER, EVER, going to do it. In fact, they will find some reason to excuse just the opposite.
CNN is criticizing Hillary Clinton’s state dept for not putting out a travel advisory on Mexico so far.
Look at Hillary for example.
She was first lady for 8 years(and probably ran the show for all we know) and is too scared to issue a travel warning since it might not benefit her politically!!!WTH!!!
“the emerging new swine flu. “
let’s fix that...
“the emerging MEXICAN swine flu.”
I realize it is not an official statement. It is a news article only.
Well a lot of reporters traveled with the President to Mexico and naturally they are concerned.I have the flu plus my husband and daughter.I am starting to feel better but this one lingers.Hillary cares about Hillary.
per FReeper DeLaine.....
“Make sure the masks are rated N95normal (dust) masks wont be any use against infectious diseases.”
I would think it belongs in breaking, yes. But I’ll let mods make that call.
