    Why are we not prepared for a flu pandemic? Congress supports hundreds of billions for defense against terrorists, but very little to defend us against the flu and other disease.

    How are we "unprepared" for the flu? This is a moderate strain and I havent seen anything that suggests we could have done more to mitigate it.

    What do you lefties want? Is there some extra gene in the liberal genome that causes your mind to determine that defense spending interferes with infectious disease prevention? Estimates are that every "free" flu shot costs American taxpayers about $600. About 10 Billion was spent in the flu shot hype and we get the same old yada yada every year that republicans caused the epidemic. It would be laughable if radicals didn't believe it.

    Oh no! It's a Panic Pandemic! Hurry! Everyone get yer Big Pharma Flu shot and keep the Medical Industrial Complex going! :uhoh3:

    I haven't had a Flu shot in 25 years and I feel just fine. I've gotten sick only handful of times because eating good is FAR BETTER for you than getting a Flu shot.
