Don't you know giving all your money to the corporations that caused the economic crisis by having all of your money in the first place is the only way to fix it?
People are sheep.
It's sort of like calling a pencil a "Lead graphite composting tool."
That is what it is, but people wouldn't understand it meant "pencil." This causes panic, as when things are outside your realm of comprehension it breeds fear.
Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again, H1N1 is LESS lethal than the common cold. Let alone the regular flu. People with H1N1 that die almost ALWAYS have a prior health risk of greater potential lethality. Once again, usually pneumonia. It's not H1N1 that kills people, it's the fact that they are already extremely ill. The only time it has ever killed anybody without prior health conditions, is when it goes untreated is poor countries. I think they have the official count set at 10. Everyone else has always had other complications.
Some people here are truly the bat shit crazies.
I don't give my money to ANY pharmaceutical company which, in turn, as you say, helps to balance the recession.
Your statement makes no sense.
The H1N1 flu is not LESS lethal than the COMMON COLD.
The COMMON COLD DOES NOT KILL PEOPLE but the H1N1 flu does!
