Swine flu "vaccine" is the disease!!!

What if..just what if..

The swine flu vaccine...I mean the REAL vaccine..is only given to the rich and powerful in the world. And the rest of us get a hoax vaccine that either does no good..or actually is a disease in itself??

What if the Swine Flu and its mass vaccination is the NWO's ultimate and final plan for mass depopulation of the Earth??

I mean, they were already worried that Swine Flu could mix with Avian flu, and when you mix the two together you get a highly deadly flu that speads like wildfire!!

Hold on to your hats folks..this may be a very rough winter!!!

I was kinda wondering whether that the swine flu vaccine has serious flaws and that by staying back and waiting for all of the rich and powerful people to trample over the rest of us common slobs they would actually be the ones to suffer the consequences while we survive.

At any rate I am not standing in line for it, the rich are welcome to it.
Let me know how that works out for you pal.

The Swine Flu Vaccine will not be released until it has been certified. So when it comes out it will be as safe as the other flu vaccines.

Yep, I can really see this. The super rich really want the earth almost totally depopulated so that they get to persohally milk the cows, grow the crops, man the power stations, take over oil production and processing, look after the sewerage, manage the day to day waste, ensure that medical treatment is available to those left, and generally have a great time working 24 hours a day to survive.

Meh.

My 15 year old son had flu symptoms last week, so I took him to the doctor on Wednesday. The doctor said there was an 80% chance it was swine flu. He didn't seem too worried. No tests were taken, no Tamiflu prescribed. Kid Nay was just told to stay home in bed for the rest of the week.

Kid Nay was sick, but not THAT sick. I've seen much worse flu symptoms. He was back at school on Monday.

And neither myself nor Mr Nay have come down with anything.

Conspiracy!

I can garantee the flu is not a conspiracy. My wife is a doctor in something about making medisin. She thinks this theory is ******** and tells me this is the way they make vaccine. Nothing strange about it.. you know what? I believe her, but Alex Jones probably thinks she is a part of NWO...

How did they get around the chicken egg part of making the vaccine? Sense there is a bird component to this virus, the embryonic chickens would not be able to create vaccine. (I do wish they could learn to make vaccines with out involving baby birds.

Your award gets added below your name over to the left, for a month, and you just sit back and bask in the glory of it all.

Here is the current month's Pith Poll, btw. (First time I've made it to the finals - might even be the first time I've been nominated, but I'm not entirely sure about that.)

Then we're all going to die.

I hope the NWO has enough qualified personnel immunised to keep operating powerplants, phone and computer networks, oil fields, coal mines, etc.

For some reason, I keep thinking of telephone sanitizers.

And triffids.

And vampires.

EEK you're part of the conspiracy to spread the flu, when we are told not to go to the doctors with flu symptoms....but to stay in bed! Am I right, am I right?

My wife (she's not just my better half, but also my more-interesting half, as some have noticed) was working in a hospital when the Hep C vaccine came along. She demurred, saying, "I'll let the queers test it first." ("More-interesting" and "politically-correct" do not travel together.) OTOH, when she worked at a wildlife rescue site she got the rabies shot, so she's the only person I know who can take on a rabid wolf and not get a big shot to her stomach muscles every morning for nine (or is it 14?) days.

OTOH, I'm 55 with asthma, and I'm not waiting for too many people to test it. Okay, I'm not young nor particularly healthy and I have an immune system that has been pummeled by every flu from H2N2 to H47N52, so I have little concern, but I still plan to get the shot before I say, "Bring it on!"

So, now that the USA has started inoculating folks against the swine Flu en mass, when do you all think people will start bleeding out the eyes, having body parts fall off, and dieing in the streets?



I give it 2 weeks.

You started this thread making fun of CTists, but some DO actually believe this stuff! I've been seeing it for a while at a forum I visit, and just came across this comment at this article here:

Quote:
The vaccine will kill and disable those with Blood Types A, B & O.

These blood types have damaged DNA/proteins and weakened immune system due to unbalanced pH levels. Type B is acidic and types A/O are alkaline.

Blood type AB has neutral 7.00 pH and has normal DNA and immune system.

As of 2005, the blood pH of blood types A/O was set up to average pH of 7.54 and the blood type B was set up to a higher acidity level (lower pH). The blood pH (blood types A,B & O) has been carefully managed through methodical, intentional poisoning to reach the current life-critical levels specifically targeting this point in time. The vaccines, planned long ago for this period in time, are formulated to push the blood pH past the critical points, in order to kill and disable many.

The number of the poisoned blood types is quickly approaching 200 million.

For further explanation: http://www.unveilingthem.com/Poisoni...Deficiency.htm

Say goodbye to a lot of fringers who will decline the H1N1 vaccine this season and will die in disproportional numbers as compared to the rest of the population. Say goodbye to a lot of conspiracy minded and paranoic individuals on the fringe. It is natural selection, ala Darwin. The most psychologically "challenged" individuals in American society are being psychologically misled by their masters. These fringe folks will, apparently, turn down the H1N1 vaccine in large numbers and will simply die in greater numbers than the population at large. That's America......Bye y'all fringers......Rest in peace.

I spent some time walking through the state fair this week.

Apparently, the lower level of the exposition building is the low-rent district, populated by booths selling katanas to 5-year olds, low quality knockoff collegiate memorabilia, Auntie June's homemade jellies, and of course, alternative healing. A LOT of alternative healing.

Every other booth it seemed, was reflexology or super cancer-killing juices...I demurred, and continued walking around. (I was actually on assignment. My Economics professor is the country Undersherriff and was in charge of the deputies doing security. Assignment was to find vendor booths for six different companies and ask their representatives economic-related questions.) At any rate, I finally come across a huge naturopathy booth, and I saw he was passing out flyers.

Sure enough, right on the front - WHAT THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT H1N1! The information wasn't a peer-reviewed medical study, or raw evidence from lab reports, or anything remotely authoritative. Nope, it was a copy/paste from a Daily Mail story. I pick it up, and peruse through it, and notice the two doctor's names on the top of the flyer (the ones operating the booths) were chiropractors. I noticed this and made the following observation, which was the only words I managed to get out before I was cut off by a red-faced, vein-popping, and rather rude tirade of the kind of paranoiac ranting that would make Alex Jones proud.

I said - "Neither one of you appear to be immunologists. What qualifies you to make this assessment about the H1N1 vaccine?"

Yeah, he got all kinds of defensive and rude - but didn't offer much in the way of an answer. I got pretty pissed off and heel-toed it out of there, in a much fouler mood for the conversation. I noticed a booth on the next aisle staffed by a few RN's that were distributing flu shots. I asked them how many they'd been going through. They were almost completely out with a few hours to spare. That really cheered me up. I was thinking with so much woo-woo flying around the place it might have an effect of some sort out of pure saturation. But apparently some modicum of common sense was in the air...or was that the bacon-scented candles from the booth further down?

H1N1 is a real disappointment! A friend got it (and was tested positive! Oh, what envy I felt!) He didn't even get particularly ill.

Both my wife an I caught something along the lines according to the list of symptoms.... and it was not even worth spending a day in bed for!


That's the real conspiracy! They make money for nothing!

For some it is just a sneeze. For others it is a threat to their lives. It just depends on who you are and how you react to the bug.

Yes, and we have the means to contain it and seriously lessen the risk to people who are more vulnerable to it.

Here in Oklahoma, two-thirds of parents in one school district are refusing to allow their children to be immunized. 66 percent. What the hell ever happened to herd immunity?

Wakefield

Would we be even having this discussion if there hadn't been that nonsense with Andrew Wakefield and the MMR vaccine ?

This Andrew Wakefield:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MMR_vaccine

In 2007 Wakefield became the subject of a General Medical Council disciplinary hearing over allegations that his research had received funding related to litigation against MMR-vaccine manufacturers, and had concealed this fact from the editors of The Lancet.[36] It was later revealed that Wakefield received £435,643 [about $780,000] plus expenses for consulting work related to the lawsuit. This funding came from the UK legal aid fund, a fund intended to provide legal services to the poor.[31] In 2009 The Sunday Times reported that Wakefield had manipulated patient data and misreported results in his 1998 paper, creating the appearance of a link with autism.[37]
