Keep your eye on it, but also remember the WH chief of staff saying that they should never "let a good crisis go to waste"?

    I now think this is largely misdirection.:mad: They are getting ready (WHAT is BO going to announce Wed night???) to pass nationalized health care w/o even a vote in the house. We heard Congressman Peter Hoekstra talking about this on the radio the other day. The lame-stream media isn't saying a word. They will nationalize 17% of the American economy w/o any input from... WE THE PEOPLE! If this is what they are doing, they will be the ones who say whether you get that operation or medical test. :mad::mad: Write/call your congress critters!!!
    Oh, we will have nationalized healthcare, of that I have no doubt. One way or another, as Obama and the democrats have said, we will have it.

    What I am wondering is if this was purposely released or what. There were 20 confirmed cases yesterday and 40+ today. If it doubles again tomorrow, I may pay more attention. Otherwise, I don't know why they are making such a hoopla about it in the MSM, WHO and CDC.

    So, there must be something else out there that is just beyond our view. I can't figure it out, yet.

      I hear ya.

      Even if it doubles tomorrow, I won't worry until/unless people start dying.

      I also still worry about people flooding across the border.

        I was talking with some friends of mine who are physicians and one point that was brought up was that any deaths pneumonia related in the last month or so were just that...because they had no reason to test for the flu. :(

        Yep, people keep coming across the border.

                Wow, ya know.. You think about being in a taxi cab, a cafe.. "A person has Contact". Okay, one to one, you go home, one to one to your family of 4 to whatever. Contact is less than 10 before realized.
                Then you think about every event or ride this person rode. Every handrail, the lines in waiting. Now people (in the hundreds) have come in contact with it, get in their car and go to their states miles away, in a hurry to get home because they are sick. There could not have been a more castrophic place to be and spread this stuff... I am amazed.

                  Kind of like out of Stephen King's The Stand, huh? At this time, it just pays to be cautious and aware. I am still undecided on whether or not this was purposely released, but not far from deciding it was. :( Like Skyowl's Wife said, we are in wait and see mode as far as deaths related to this, in the U.S. At the moment, it appears to be more of an annoyance than anything else. I hope it STAYS that way and fizzles out quickly!!

                  The suspected cases are way up today, but I don't really want to post those, just the confirmed cases.

                    This article has confirmed count at 64, however does not include Florida and Indiana.

                    Here is what I have:

                    New York: 45
                    California: 10
                    Texas: 6
                    Kansas: 2
                    Ohio: 1
                    Indiana: 1
                    Florida: 1

                    Total: 66

                    These are just the confirmed cases.

                      Two L.A. County deaths possibly related to swine flu, coroner says
                      9:09 AM | April 28, 2009

                      The Los Angeles County coroner's office is investigating two recent deaths that officials say could be related to the recent global swine flu outbreak. However, no tests have come back positive for the swine flu, and medical examiners have not officially determined what caused the deaths.

                      Coroner's spokesman Craig Harvey said Bellflower Medical Center reported the death of a 33-year Long Beach resident Monday afternoon from symptoms resembling swine flu.

                      "It's that diagnosis that needs to be confirmed," Harvey said. "An autopsy will be performed to establish the cause of death."


                      The man was taken to the hospital Saturday, complaining of shortness of breath and lymphoma. Doctors later diagnosed the patient with pneumonia, Harvey said.

                      The second case involves a 45-year-old man from La Mirada, whose death was reported Monday to the coroner's office. The man died April 22 at Coast Plaza Doctor's Hospital in Norwalk.

                      Doctors said the man died of pneumonia but the L.A. County Health Department refused to accept the death certificate signed by the private doctor, Harvey said. The case was then referred to the coroner's office, which will conduct further investigation.

                      If confirmed, the deaths would be the first reported in the United States from the swine flu.

                          New article stating that FIVE people have been hospitalized. Last I had read, there had only been 1 person serious enough to be hospitalized.

                                Dear Lord Protect Us!!!!! This is quickly ranging way up the scale of panademic cases. It's at a level 4 right now, but I suspect it may eventually hit a 5. Scarey stuff.
