Do we really have a stockpile of meds? Seriously, what has the government done lately that we can believe?

  • I am sure they will all be just fine, as for us, we are on our own!

    I just came across this and thought it was interesting: the drug co's are truly everywhere...
    Among the beneficiaries of the run on Tamiflu is Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who was chairman of Gilead from 1997 to 2001 and owns at least $5 million of the stock, which has jumped from $35 in April to $47. Former Secretary of State George Shultz, who is on Gilead's board, has sold more than $7 million worth of Gilead in 2005.

  • You can believe you're going to pay higher taxes on everything till you die and your kids will too. How about that? They have stockpiles of meds, not we, you aren't getting any in the event of an emergency. That's wishful thinking. If the swine flu were to become catastrophic, do you think any politicians would die or get sick from it?

  • lol akin, '

    the politicians would keep themselves all alive, and their families, and then be too stupid to realize that they can't SURVIVE without the rest of the world! Who will give Pelosi her botox shots? Who will fly them around the world? Who will mix their cocktails?

    Who will grow their food? (Michelle gets points for this one, she gardens, but can you honestly see any of them supplying food for the rest of them?)
