Found on The Daily Bell – Savage Attacks: Flu Debunkery Hits the Conservative Mainstream

January 16, 2013

“Did Harry Reid take a flu shot? Did Barack Obama take a flu shot? Did Barack Obama’s lovely family take a flu shot? Did Joe Biden take a flu shot?” Savage asked. “Which of the mandarins took the flu shot?”

They are reporting a few deaths from flu. But nothing has changed. There have always been deaths every year from flu. It’s mostly elderly people of very advanced age, but every year there are some bad cases of flu.

But this season is NO worse than any I remember in my whole life. That might change someday, but it won’t be a flu virus like the ones before, because flu is flu.

There are millions of people in the USA and probably TENS of millions who will not take the flu shot. There are hundreds of millions who do not take it anyway, around the world.

Drugs exceeded motor vehicle accidents as a cause of death in 2009, killing at least 37,485 people nationwide, according to preliminary data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
