Do we have collective Alzheimer's or will enough people remember that government medical agencies do not have a great track record of dealing with viral outbreaks? Back in the Gerald Ford era, more people were harmed by the Swine Flu vaccine than the actual Swine Flu.
Trust the CDC at your own risk.
"...28 students of a local preparatory school tested positive for swine flu."
Any serious events? No. According to authorities, symptoms were very mild.
The experts claim that the NY school kids were victimized by the same virus, so why is it deadly in Mexico and not in NYC? Does H1N1 suddenly get weaker the moment it crosses the border from Mexico into the U.S.? What say the mayor of NYC?
Has Homeland Security become kryptonite for Swine Flu?
"You are now entering the U.S.A. If your name is H1N1, then poof! You have magically been transformed into a mild sniffle."
We'll call that your first clue that the Germ Theory is not adequate in explaining what is going on here and in Mexico. Once you understand the Law of the Terrain, however, it becomes apparent that it's not the virus, but actually the host who is responsible for symptomatic severity.
"It's the terrain, stupid."
Medical collectivism or individual liberty?
There is an agenda in blaming the virus instead of placing even a modicum of responsibility on the viral host. Blaming the virus absolves the host of any responsibility for its state of health, or the lack thereof. Why is this important, you may ask?
If you "get" the flu, you get to be a victim and can then submit yourself to some higher authority that claims it can save you from an unseen microbe, neither Republican or Democrat.
"Trust us. We're from the government. We've seen it and it's scary."
Who is that higher authority in this case? A licensed medical representative of the government. BIG GOVERNMENT. That's a conflict of interest. A BIG ONE. A medical monopoly is both immoral and unconstitutional.
What of unlicensed, natural healers who regularly assist those in need in healing from "incurable" diseases? They're not approved by government, so they don't count, unless they get a prison number. Have we become a nation of wimps, only willing to act on information, viral or otherwise, as long as it's approved by government? Have you apologized to Thomas Jefferson?
Benjamin Rush, physician to George Washington and signer of the Declaration of Independence warned us long ago:
"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom."
Do we need a Declaration of Immunological Independence? Which part of the Constitution grants elected or unelected bureaucrats expertise in virology? Or allows for titles of nobility? And what kind of tools and fools will the bureaucratic oligarchy use to protect or treat you? If history shall be our alibi, then it will inevitably be pharmaceutical weapons of mass destruction delivered by licensed medical doctors. Example? Tamiflu has been a big benefactor as Taxpayers have had their wealth transferred to Roche Pharmaceuticals to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars (at least back when hundreds of millions of dollars actually meant something).
Even if you are a fan of drugs and vaccines, it is hard to deny the collateral damage done in the name of public health or public good. I realize that flu vaccine apologists claim "that it is all for the public good" and "that you should be a good citizen, take the shot and shut up." That does not sound very American to me. Does anyone at the Department of Health and Human Services believe in individual liberty as a founding principle?
I am not a group and neither are you. The last time I checked, you are not "the public." You are an individual, not a Borg. Collectivism is evil. Does the "H" in H1N1 surreptitiously stand for Hillary-care? "Public health" is actually a collectivist phrase used to herd individuals into groups for purposes of control.
Will the media-hyped threat of a pandemic flu finally frighten Americans into accepting a socialist form of government?
I have nothing against good hygiene and proper sanitation (the Law of the Terrain demands it), but those things were taught with great efficiency within religious institutions long before government supplanted the church as a new "compulsory" house of worship. Did you ever wonder why the CDC is so desperate to drum up support for flu shots and anti-viral drug sacraments each year?
Maybe they need the Pentagon to unload its stockpile of Tamiflu before it expires?
Conquering the immune system is not a constitutional enumerated power of the Pentagon or any other branch or subdivision of the U.S. government, Janet Napolitano and Barack Obama included.
Immunological experts they are not. They should stick to defending the sovereignty of the United States. In case they need reminding, the Second Amendment to the Constitution was not written for hunting purposes. It was written so that the people could be secure in their liberty, especially from tyrannical government. Whether the flu pandemic threat is real or not, it is secondary to the threat that government poses with every new declared state of emergency.
Who knew that the American republic could be overthrown by a microbe, or the fear of one? The "rule of necessity" has no law, which means that the Constitution has no meaning. If this does not concern you, then role up your sleeve and take the shot. Assault with a deadly weapon used to be against the law, before it got approved by the FDA. In reference to potentially compulsory experimental vaccines, I'll side with the words of my good friend and constitutional scholar, Michael Badnarik :
"You bring the needle, I'll bring the .45, and we'll see who makes a bigger hole."
Defending liberty in the face of tyranny, microbial, governmental or otherwise, was never promised to be an easy task. In the face of H1N1, don't lose sight of the fact that what remains of individual liberty is set to be squashed by medical collectivism.
Don't let it happen. Health sovereignty is your birthright.
