Swine flu, pork connection disproven by authorities
As swine flu, or the H1N1 flu strain, remains a threat in California, the SJSU community is left to reflect on a disease that, so far, has left the university unaffected, according to an SJSU Public Affairs news release....
Ron Paul, an ob-gyn doctor is 11-term libertarian-like Texas
Republican congressman says simply: "The government shouldn't be in the
medical business." He describes a similar outbreak of swine flu back in
1976 when Democrat Joe Biden was already a senator but Barack Obama was
just a teenager. Paul says he was one of two votes against federal
involvement in flu-fighting back then. "There was a panic," he recalls,
"and they said it was going to sweep the nation and the government came
up with some flu shots and the government was going to inoculate
everybody and save the world from this disaster."
When the pandemic, called "Swine Flu", which man creates it,
you can be sure the governments of the world will have learned a lot
from this one, and they'll capitalize on it. They've found that they
need to work together to combat such diseases, a fact which the
governments will use to help promote a one world government with all of
its unified systems.
They've also found that dictatorial or repressive regimes fight
such diseases better, because they have more control over the
people-they can limit their travel, quarantine their home or apartment
building. So authoritarianism has just been given a new excuse for
existence, or at least an old one that hasn't been used in a while!
