Obama Admin. Releases Stockpile of Antiflu Virus Drug
Tamiflu Has Shown to Be Effective Against Swine Flu

The Obama administration was "all hands on deck" today in response to the quickly escalating swine flu outbreak, with the declaration of a public health emergency and the release of the national antiflu drug stockpile. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared a national public health emergency, with swine flu now confirmed in at least 20 cases in five states. However, she said, the outbreak has not yet threatened to reach the lethal level it has in Mexico.

Hey guys remember this article?

NEW YORK (Fortune) - The prospect of a bird flu outbreak may be panicking people around the globe, but it's proving to be very good news for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other politically connected investors in Gilead Sciences, the California biotech company that owns the rights to Tamiflu, the influenza remedy that's now the most-sought after drug in the world.

On some streets in Mexico city, the curbs are high so that raw sewage doesn't get on the sidewalk.

When I returned to my island home after a month hiatus recently, the quarantine officer asked me if I had any fish, I said no and he let me in.

I doubt we will get this new super virus where I live.

I'm fairly certain the quarantine officer was just hungry.

Actually I answered " have sauce" and he said "is it fish sauce?" and then I said no.

Yeah, I guess he might have been hurting for fish sauce.

Yeah this story hasn't been off the radio or anyone's tongues lately. There haven't been any fatal cases in the United States, I heard its easily treatable, and there till hasn't been a single break out where I live.

That's because more people probably die from regular flu every day and the media is blowing this all hell of out of proportion

"officials reported the first death in the United States from the virus was a 23-month-old Mexican child who died in Houston."

God, I'd hate to have the flu. It sucks but I think I'd get over it.

That chart doesn't take into account the big drug war going on in Mexico.

The good news: Tamiflu cures swine flu and bird flu.

The bad news: It gives you dog flu.
