Swine Flu - REALITY CHECK ???

by: Abstract Brain

Fri May 01, 2009 at 16:31:27 PM EDT

SWINE FLU COVERUP ? Listening to news - experts say this combination of the asian flu, swine flu, and American flus should not have occurred naturally. Hmmm,outbreak target teen ager,young adults and middle aged - not oldies and younglings ( latter aren't much of a threat). Mexican gov't targets big pig farm - me wonders were the owners trying to breed pigs with chickens? Poor chickens - He,he... Yes, me sees the flying pigs now? NOT LIKELY!!! Can you think of anything more dangerous and grossly incompetant than a Mexican BIOFARE LAB. Yes, kiddies - shades of the movie "Resident Evil" maybe upon us.. Alas, the sad truth is we will never know the truth - the powers that be love to keep us in the dark and feed us strange things (mushroom joke). Reality check - Hmmm, hard to say - but not at all impossible?  Be Safe...

The Emperor's New Suite of Clothes

by: jake6257

Thu Apr 30, 2009 at 13:12:23 PM EDT

Where is it?
The odd case here, the odd case there, more like the Scarlett Pimpernel at the moment.

We need serious information not speculation.
Where are the real statistics?
Why doesn't mexico test all the dead?  Only takes a few hours nowadays to get a result not days.
How many cases have been reported?
Have the post mortem exams showed classic flu pneumonias or not?
Are any pigs ill?
Where is the pig connection? Somebody trying to downplay or what? Why not Avian flu 'cos it has a bit of that so they say.  why not human because once again they say it has that too.

We are being fed BS and speculation. This is causing panic not proper prepping.

Swine Flu Rumors

by: Okieman

Mon Apr 27, 2009 at 09:45:53 AM EDT

This diary is for posting rumors relating to the ongoing Swine Flu Epidemic/Pandemic.  

Unverified rumors can sometimes be correct and useful.  Then again, often they are bogus and should be ignored.  Reading this diary should be sort of like eating fish:  eat the meat, spit out the bones.  So, reader beware.

Here are two previous Rumors Diaries, each with some current info toward the bottom of the diary:

Things like Chikungunya, Dengue, overcrowded hospitals.  Lot's of other stories that might obscure H5N1 diagnoses, or stories that point out difficulties in dealing with H5N1 could go here too.

When the news to the public dries up

by: Kelly Phan

Wed Mar 21, 2007 at 01:28:21 AM EDT

As quoted by our very own Carol@SC:

That is what has hit me lately--the sheer incongruity of having the racheting up of the rhetoric along with the clamping down of case reports.  And another thing I do not understand is why there is no "leaking" of information--we used to be privy to certain leaks, like the leaks of the information out of that super secret meeting where they spilled the info on the Karo mutations. The powers that be are more closed mouthed now than I have ever seen them, and so are their underlings.  Why are we not getting any information from any people on the ground.  We are so ham-strung right now and our world of information just keeps getting smaller and smaller.

This is a good question.  I would love to get input from everyone about the puzzling evaporation of news and leaks and feeds from everywhere all at once, in addition to a furious increase in global preparation. 

Let me remind everyone that all of this is pointed out by our very own newshounds who look at this information day in and day out.  If anyone is going to see patterns, it will be the newshounds.  Here's how it started.

Stock Market--panflu predictor?

by: Lisa the GP

Sat Jan 27, 2007 at 17:51:16 PM EST

TPTB and the financial markets tend to get information in a priviledged fashion.

Does anyone with knowledge in that area have an opinion about the market not in the sense of how to survive a pandemic financiallly, but as a measure of how 'real' or 'imminent' the panflu threat may be?
