    The H1N1 vaccine will arrive too late to help most Americans who will be infected during this flu season, according to a study conducted by scholars at Purdue University, The Washington Times reported on Tuesday.

    The study also estimates that the virus commonly referred to as the swine flu bug will infect about 60 percent of the U.S. population, although only about 25 percent of Americans will fall ill.
    We are all going to get it sooner or later.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    Meh, I don't personally care one way or the other. I'll get the shot if my doc wants me to get it but I have more faith in my superior immune system than I do in the vaccine hype.

    I have faith in my immune system, my pantry and two freezers full of food, and my ability to work from home.

    They're both freezer segments of refrigerators. I'm not a Mormon or anything.

    Oh, like also owning a chest freezer is the Mark of the Beast.


    I'm actually just the Neighbor of the Beast. :D

    No, not that... I think Mormons are supposed to always have a year's supply of food on hand. I wouldn't last more than about four months, but neither would the flu.

    We also have stocked up a bit in order to make it through a few weeks without being able to go out.
    Considering the situation in the world ... swine flu, etc ... it's smart.
