America – The Hysterical

by Tedd Koren

Remember the Spanish American war in 1898 with the battle cry “Remember the Maine” as Teddy Roosevelt and his roughriders ran up San Juan Hill?

I’m sure you don’t but you remember it from history class if you weren’t sleeping, don’t you?  We battled the Spanish who were occupying Puerto Rico.

Did you know that Americans living in New England coastal towns were terrified that Spanish gunboats would go up our coast and bombard them?
A little hysteria wouldn’t you say?

More recently, on September 11th people all over the country working in high rise buildings left them.  People didn’t go to work near them.  More hysteria.

It seems that we Americans have a tendency towards hysteria and the drug companies are playing that card very well.

Reuters just had an article entitled Flu experts gear up for pandemic of vaccine worry”

In the article we are reminded that people get sick and die a lot in this country irrespective of the flu, ”One million heart attacks, 700,000 strokes and 900,000 miscarriages — U.S. public health officials want Americans to know these will happen every single year with or without a swine flu vaccine campaign. Yet this year, they know a significant number will be blamed on the H1N1 vaccine, which will roll out within weeks, and they are struggling to be ready.”

The death rate from the swine flu is lower than earlier estimates. The death rate compares to a moderate year of seasonal influenza, said Dr Marc Lipsitch of Harvard University. “It’s mildest in kids. That’s one of the really good pieces of news in this pandemic,” Lipsitch told a meeting of flu experts being held by the U.S.Institute of Medicine

Not only is this one flu mild, but the flu shot is very, very dangerous.  Look at this headline:

“Doctor says FLU VACCINE will cause 60,000 deaths in France alone”

Dr Marc Girard, a specialist in the side effects of drugs and a medical expert commissioned by French courts, has said said on French TV that the “swine flu” vaccine could cause 60,000 deaths in France, especially among young people, children and pregnant women. He also said that the people promoting the “swine flu” vaccine are doing so because they have links with the pharmaceutical company.

The problem with the “swine flu” vaccine is that it is not just “badly developed” but “not developed”, he said, adding that it is being prepared in conditions that endanger the public health.

Dr. Girard continues:  “A vaccine is being developed in conditions of amateurism such as I have never seen… it is a vaccine that has been developed at great speed in conditions that put in danger the public health.”

Well, what does the good doctor expect?  We’re dealing with hysteria.  We’re dealing with blind faith and the assumption that only MDs and drug companies know how to protect our health.

This is the same mentality that caused Patrick Swayze to die a miserable toxic death caused by the chemotherapy he was given for pancreatic cancer.  Had he been under natural methods there’s a good chance he could have been saved.

But apart from that, his undying faith in the medical model was displayed in an interview: “I want to last until they find a cure, which means I’d better get a fire under it.”

Many of our parents and grandparents came to America to avoid the religious fanaticism that caused death and destruction in the “old world.”  Now we see death and destruction in the name of “medicine” and “medical science” – the modern religion that offers eternal life if only we believe enough and spend enough money on their drugs.

It’s time for science to be respected and followed, not blind obedience to industries that rip off the scientific method for their own selfish ends.

Avoid the swine flu shot, avoid the flu shot and don’t vaccinate your children.  There is no scientific benefit to these bizarre rituals, and plenty of harm from them.
