So some think the gov't is responsible for the swine flu, and are prepared for it with all their "coffins"...

And it really got me to wondering something....

Seems as though the gov't really does love raking in those tax dollars. Now, if they kill off all the taxpayers, who's going to fill their pockets?

  • I don't believe it's the governments fault.

  • No, it's definitely NOT the gov't fault that there is swine flu, but I do think that they are making it out to be way worse than it really is. The cdc and places like that seem way less concerned about it reaching pandemic stages.

  • Umm... it's the flu. A rather mild one that responds to treatment. Last year in America, 35,000 people died from influenza. This is nothing new.

  • If it's a conspiracy, it would be the non wage / low wage earners that are coffin bound. No administration's best interest is in offing the higher tax payers and bigger donors.

    I think swine flu is a bigger deal in other countries that don't have great healthcare (dare I say socialized), it won't be as big of a deal here. The current administration is just taking care of the fear frenzy you are all in by perpetuating the fear with their constant press conferences. How many times do you adults need to be told to wash your hands?

    FYI: WASH YOUR HANDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The government is in on a lot of stuff that causes issues with the American public and I believe that the Swine flu one of them. They are trying to get us to a state where we will become one government world wide and this is just another one of their steps. We are headed for a dictatorship and people are too stupid to realize it. Pay attention people our government doesn't care about us.

  • I still don't know how people say the US government is making a big deal out of things when Hong Kong quarantined a whole hotel and is only entering in haz mat suits. Our reaction is mild compared to other countries.

  • China is a communist country. They already don't have the freedoms we have here. In our country you are supposed to take care of yourself. Too many people start to depend on government to take care of them and that's exactly what will happen. You won't have choices anymore.
