Swine Flu or Animal Farm?


I knew it! From the minute I was forced to study the novel Animal Farm by George Orwell in high school, I knew that one day that book would actually come a live. It’s a conspiracy, I tell you! The swine flu is linked to Napoleon (the head pig) and his crew plotting to rule the world. Forget about Osama Bin Ladin. He’s probably hiding from this swine flu. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) needs to focus their attention on finding Napoleon before he catapults this virus into a huge epidemic.

Ironically, while the media is busy counting and reporting new cases of the swine flu, Napoleon and his buddies are probably back at the farm, where they’ve been for years, cooking up their revolutionary mutiny. Their first order of business: develop animal-like diseases and viruses.

In the 1990s Mad-Cow disease (a fatal, neurodegenerative disease in cattle) became a deadly epidemic in the United Kingdom. It is believed that consumption of infected cows leads to getting this deadly disease. Then, in 2007 it was the bird flu, a virus caused by the Avian influenza found in birds and transmissible to domesticated birds such as ducks, turkeys and chickens. Now, it’s the swine flu. It seems to me that the CDC needs to form a stronger alliance with the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), or find Napoleon and his buddies and shut their operations down!

I pray that the CDC can create a vaccine fast enough to fight this swine flu virus, or that the virus dies quickly on its own. Until then, if you are coughing, sneezing, have a fever, runny nose and nausea, go see your doctor! If not, prevention is always better than a cure. Avoid close contact with people who have flu-like symptoms and wash your hands frequently. Let's put an end to this swine flu and show Napoleon and his buddies that they don't stand a chance!

I don't know enough about the Napolean theory, however I do agree with the animal farm. I think if we eat healthy foods, our bodies will naturally rid any sympthoms which may strike us. And if we do get sick, we need to double up on the healthy foods (ginger, honey, cinnamon, etc.).

I think this is scarology, plain and sumple: Some who want to frighten the American people into surrendering a few of theior rights believing that only the government can insure their safety.

Do these sciuentists even know if the virus can be shed prior to the occurence of synptoms? Second, with the relatively low number of deaths (compared to population of countries where the virus has appeared), I think the cries of "pandemic" are premature. Helll, O'm more worried about bad meat than I am flu. (Read Robin Cooks "Toxic").

Read "The HOt Zone" by Thomas Hauser for some enlightening data about viruses, or even "Viruses and Superbugs" by Thomas Hausler, which focuses on antibiotic-resistant strains of viruses and bacteria.

I don't think a vaccine in the answer, how about we just stop eating nastyness and switch over to a more healthy diet

leave the vaccines alone! that is not the answer. Lets stop eating pure nastiness and choose a healthier diet! Mexico needs a healthy dose of wheatgrass and spurilina

My preschooler, Layla, asked me to tell Anderson Cooper (CNN 360) to tell the doctor (Sanjay Gupta) to cover his mouth PROPERLY (by using the inside arm at the elbow.....like they teach them in preschool)! DUH! Common sense, if we all use it once in a while would tell us that we don't pass money or touch door knobs or computer keyboards with our inner elbow. Betcha you can slow down the 'pandemic' significantly by just following the advice of a 5 year old! Maybe Layla should be vetted for Surgeon General.

Great work! I wonder who is Napoleon! And the reason for creating these viruses...

I'll try not to be long winded. I find it not hard to believe that man is not to blame for these illnesses. Every couple years it's something new. If man makes computer viruses, why not biological. Personally I do think the world would be a better place with fewer people. But thats just me. Or is it? I believe these illnesses have more than just the reported victims. Vacines in minority communities have been found to contain allumium, lead and mercury. I live in S.E. Washington D.C.. I ride the metro bus with this new generation of bad Children. You can't tell me there ain't something in the water. Vacines are manditory to attend school. So my point is its a setup. It's only a matter of time before they create a real epidemic. Then the vacine is going to leave brain dead zombie locked up in jail or mental institution. I'd rather have the swine flu. FYI I haven't been ill in over six years, at least physically. Knock on wood.
