Obama declares swine flu a national emergency

http://apnews.excite.com/article/20091024/D9BHLEA00.html


Hmmm...state of emergency declared on H1N1.

You'd be blind, deaf and otherwise dumb to not see where that is going.

I won't even bother with more. Just waiting and preparing. I do wonder though, what that next step might be. Logically, it's their martial law directive to ensure the public health safety of the nation-at-large.

Hmmm...watch for the green patrol to come knocking with your dose of government required medicine.

:::The national emergency declaration was the second of two steps needed to give Sebelius extraordinary powers during a crisis.
On April 26, the administration declared swine flu a public health emergency, allowing the shipment of roughly 12 million doses of flu-fighting medications from a federal stockpile to states in case they eventually needed them.
At the time, there were 20 confirmed cases in the U.S. of people recovering easily. There was no vaccine against swine flu, but the CDC had taken the initial step necessary for producing one.

"As a nation, we have prepared at all levels of government, and as individuals and communities, taking unprecedented steps to counter the emerging pandemic," Obama wrote in Saturday's declaration.

He said the pandemic keeps evolving, the rates of illness are rising rapidly in many areas and there's a potential "to overburden health care resources.":::

Oh when I saw that report I knew you'd mention that - I don't like gettin' political in my blog comments, I'm making an exception here - this President we have is just a little out of reality!

Here in Australia apparently they are immunizing anyone who wants it for swine flu. I don't get it as my sister who's a medical scientist said that last winter they had MANY cases of swine flu (in fact they said that the only flu going around was swine flu - I don't really understand that though) & most were very mild. I know my family won't be getting the immunization.

Well I really hope they don't try to force us to get this. Not that one could in my area anyway. Everyplace has been out for weeks and runs out again as soon as they get it. I knew some some schools near me started giving it that the government was getting to deep into this.

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
