If you’re like me, you’re getting seriously fed up with all the media hype about H1N1. I guess when the MJ hoopla died down they had to find something to rant about to sell papers.
As more and more friends and family get (and get over) the flu, I’m noticing that it’s really no more intense than a lot of other flus we’ve had in the past. Most are sick for a few days and that’s it.
So, why all the hype? Follow the money trail and you’ll see. Who stands to benefit from this so-called crisis? Well, from where I’m standing, it looks to be the media and the pharmaceutical companies that make the vaccines.
I stumbled upon a little blog post today that echos my sentiments. There are a growing number of us who are saying, “Wait a minute. This is stupid.” Davey Wavey is one of them. He did a little research and says, “…more than 20,000 Americans die of the flu each year anyway. And that’s from the days before H1N1.” Hello.
