vaccineThis morning, I heard that 95% of all flu cases in the United State (not a typo) have been Swine Flu, and that there is a shortage of vaccinations available as people scramble to save themselves from imminent death.

95%?  Holy cow, it is a pandemic!

But then there is this:

In late July, the CDC abruptly advised states to stop testing for H1N1 flu, and stopped counting individual cases. The rationale given for the CDC guidance to forego testing and tracking individual cases was: why waste resources testing for H1N1 flu when the government has already confirmed there’s an epidemic?

So they’ve stopped testing for it, but have told us that 95% of all flu cases are swine flu.

When the statistics don’t tell the story they want you to hear, they stop collecting the statistics and make up their own numbers.  After all, your “leaders” have already determined that you’re in danger, so why bother with facts?

I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, so I’m not going to go into trying to determine the motives of the bureaucrats behind this.  But here are a few nuggets to employ in your own analysis:

First, government wants control over your life.  And the best way to get you to cede that control is to put you in fear.

Second, there is big money on the line:

[GlaxoSmithKline] has spent more than $3.2 billion on research, acquisitions and extra manufacturing in anticipation of a flu pandemic. Ranging from vaccines and antiviral drugs to medicated face masks and diagnostic tools, Glaxo’s portfolio sets it apart from rivals that have tended to focus on one aspect of flu-fighting, such as Sanofi-Aventis SA, which makes vaccines, and Roche Holding AG, which makes the antiviral drug Tamiflu.

Finally, an understanding of the concept of corporatism is vital to analyzing  the motives of the authoritarian sociopaths in government.  Corporatism is the partnership between government and big corporations, and they’re not acting in your interest.  It has nothing to do with free markets or capitalism.  It is a form of facism.  I have a category dedicated to the topic in the left-hand navigation of the site.

You’re being lied to.  The state does not act in your interest.  It’s time to dispel of these myths and abolish it.

UPDATE 10/27/09 – I just learned that Obama declared the swine flu a “national emergency” last week (I’m a little late in learning this – I ignore mainstream news to whatever extent possible…)

Could this be the build-up in the scare campaign to enable the state to push for mandatory (forced) vaccination?

UPDATE II 10/27/09 – I’ve been challenged on the 95% figure because it was a “low level” government employee and a local news source citing the statistic.  So I was wrong,  some sources were saying 95%,  but it was 99%, and it came from the Centers for Disease Control itself:

As of September 2009, more than 99% of circulating influenza viruses in the United States are 2009 H1N1.
