Government Giving Big Pharma $2 Billion Shot In The Arm

Government Giving Big Pharma $2 Billion Shot In The Arm

In order to speed production and development of new vaccines and try to inoculate more people, the Federal government is pumping almost $2 billion into helping researchers and biotechnology companies develop new drugs, vaccines and equipment to shorten the six- to nine-month time frame currently needed to make a flu vaccine, according to an Aug. 25 article in The Wall Street Journal.

This year, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention is recommending that everyone ages 6 months and older be vaccinated. The flu strains being vaccinated against include last year’s H1N1 (swine flu) and strains of H3N2 and influenza B. As usual, the vaccine is being developed before the flu season actually begins, making its “effectiveness” a crapshoot.

Of course, flu vaccines are worse than worthless for patients. Research shows that average vaccine must be administered to 100 adults to prevent one case of flu. If the vaccine is designed specifically for the strain of flu causing the outbreak the disease is prevented only once for every 33 people vaccinated.

On top of that, the vaccine causes a myriad of health problems. According to a report by the Vaccine Safety Risk Assessment Working Group, a committee appointed by the Congressionally-created public oversight agency National Vaccine Advisory Committee, last year’s swine flu vaccine caused three serious side effects: Guillain-Barrè Syndrome, Bell’s Palsy and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, a blood disorder.

Already this year Australia has banned the flu vaccine for children under the age of 5 because of increased instances of vomiting, high fever and convulsions after vaccination. Sweden and Finland are reporting young patients developing narcolepsy, and France, Germany and Norway are also recording serious side effects. The European Union has launched an investigation, according Dr. Joseph Mercola.

Mercola also writes:

You should know that anytime you receive a flu shot, you are taking a risk. In order to get the perceived benefit that you or your family is being protected from the flu… you are being injected with numerous substances even above and beyond the three flu viruses — substances with known risks to your health.

Toxic substances found in various flu vaccines include:

  • Dangerous levels of mercury in the form of thimerosal, a deadly preservative that is 50 times more toxic than regular mercury
  • Ethylene glycol (antifreeze)
  • Formaldehyde — a known cancer-causing agent
  • Neomycin and streptomycin (antibiotics)
  • Aluminum — a neurotoxin linked to Alzheimer’s disease
  • Polysorbate 80 (Tween80™) — which can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis
  • Phenol (carbolic acid)
  • Resin and gelatin — known to cause allergic reactions
  • Triton X100 (detergent)

So every year that you get a flu shot, you are taking a risk that one or more of these substances, or the flu viruses themselves, will cause a problem in your body.

Ask yourself: Is this a risk I’m willing to take?

    Dr. Mercola has a major advantage that Uncle Scam and Big Pharma don’t have. That is, Dr. Mercola knows the difference between $#^* and shinola.
    While this behavior is consistent with the antisocial, sociopathic antics of this scumbag administration, there is NO way Big Pharma bastards or Uncle Scam can justify it. This crap amounts to criminals funding other criminals so they can stay in business.
    Back off, @$$holes. If you don’t have the means or the money to help yourself (sans immoral “help” from Uncle Scam), then go out of business. America
    will survive without vermin like you.

    • Karolyn

      SC – Don’t pin everything on “this administration”. This is something that’s been going on for a long time. It’s nothing new in the land of Big Pharma.

      • s c

        K, you missed the point – again. The fact that this is not ‘new’ is irrelevant. And, no one in his or her right mind would try to pin ‘everything’ on this adninistration.
        What matters is the FACT that this administration is going out of its way to buy votes, redistribute wealth to those who don’t deserve it (in this case, Big Pharma), hope that people don’t think twice about what it’s doing to give money to Big Pharma and dare to IMPLY that Big Pharma will be ‘hurt’ if it doesn’t get this immoral, predictable BAILOUT.
        Now, what is it that you still don’t UNDERSTAND?

        • TIME

          SC, DITTO that.

        • Christin

          And ALL the Big Government and Big Pharma types said…

          “I’M NOT A CROOK.”

          • Mike In MI

            Christin -
            “…Not a crook” and “how dare you question MY authority or right to do what I know you need to have done to…ehra, for you? After all, my child, it’s for your own good. Don’t you see how pure my intentions are? Besides, this is just how busines gets done in this era – WE won…didn’t we? Now, run along and play. No need to bother your sweet head about such things, is there? Heh heh heh.”

          • Christin

            Mike in MI,

            You ARE a CROOK… (to the Evil Ones)

            “You Crooks” are stealing FREEDOM and hard earned money from the pockets of the American citizens, and ignoring the Constitution you took and oath to uphold.

            I will question with BOLDNESS, especially YOU as I NEVER voted for you, nor do I recognize your marxist authority over me. Jesus is my Savior and the Almighty God has granted me my RIGHTS.

            I am the Holy God’s child (never yours) and He is GOOD, but your intentions are pure EVIL.

            Business is done with integrity as a Statesman… and just doing the RIGHT thing.

            If you won, it was by cheating with fraudulent voting, demonizing good people, and lieing like your Father, satan.
            *Thou shalt NOT steal and Thou shalt NOT bear false witness (lie)*

            I would LOVE to play, but WE have much WORK to do to keep healthy food on the table that you won’t allow us to grow or eat and PAY burdensome TAXES to keep you in the lap of luxury you so LUST.

            These things bother me much that we must FIGHT the pain and suffering you intend, the destruction of our beautiful God given land. I am GOD’S Sweet child… you have NO clue of Agape Love. I will win with Love and Goodness and Shining the Light on ALL your darkness.

            I am on God’s side and He wins, Jesus reigns and you are set to go to the lake of fire.
            Heh, heh, heh.

      • Meteorlady

        They aren’t stepping up and stopping the funding are they? So this administration is just as bad as the last and the last after the last. There’s a reason why big Pharma gives so much money to political campaigns.

        • DaveH

          And there’s no doubt in my mind that they are largely behind the effort by the Government to mess in our supplement choices.

          • Vigilant

            Agreed.

          • Kate8

            DaveH – Government, big bankers, big pharma, health insurers…they are all the same people!

            Only a handful of wealthy elites run everything. The rest of the rats run around doing their bidding.

      • refuse2lose

        But Barry told the entire nation that he was going to bring CHANGE to Washington,did he not? So why is he continuing the decades long practices that have allowed America to crumble?

        • Kate8

          It may not have started with this administration, but this administration has sure stepped up to accelerate it. No other has suggested MANDATORY vaccines.

          Karolyn, I’m surprised you didn’t just blame Bush. LOL.

          • Karolyn

            Hi Kate. How are you? – I’ve never said this administration is the be-all and end-all. I just can’t see it being blamed for EVERYTHING. As I’ve in previous posts, the situations we’re in have been coming on for a long time. Given the way government acts, it’s more or less a natural progression.

          • Kate8

            Hi Karolyn.

            As a matter of fact, this administration is only being blamed for the things it’s actually doing. Unlike Bush, who’s blamed for everything that’s happened for the past century, and to this day.

            Am I to gather from your comment that you are not one of those who do that?

            An honest question.

          • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Jill

            It really makes me wonder just what exactly are in these “mandatory” vaccines?

          • DaveH

            Jill,
            This article will help:
            http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=3218

          • Karolyn

            Kate – I don’t think you can blame any one administration, person or party.

          • DaveH

            You’re right, Karolyn, but the Democrats have been the Tax and Spend party for the 40 years of my political awareness.

        • Vigilant

          It strikes me that he only wants to change the good things about America. If it’s a decades-long practice that’s deleterious to us, he’ll keep it!

    • tennislady

      AMEN to that!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dan az

    How can you make a vaccine for a flu that dosent exist do you not give smaller doses of a flu virus to counter off the effects of a full blown flu how do you know which one you are expecting to show up? something smells a little fishy to me let alone what else they put in it.My wife once took a flu shot and lost the hearing in one ear and came down with a bad case of the flu I on the other hand didnt and wont ever,never came down with it or any other man made flu Tanks but no thanks!

    • TIME

      Dan, The shots mean nothing other than injecting you with crap and the making of BIG money.

      The base idea is to keep the “SHEEP” in line, and to make the sheep think they are now “SAFER” by having this shot.
      What its for makes no differance. If the sheep are good little sheep and do as they are told they get a reward, of “NOTHING.” they will still get sick so what. Do they ever learn, NO.

      Its one very strong reason why Cass Sunstien is right about the Hommer Simpson effect of the American public.
      Its sad I know; but really its very true.

      • dan az

        Time
        I have to agree and the more I talk to people I also have to agree with that!You cant fix stupid you can but its illegal!

    • Carol

      I have never had a flu shot. Can’t take anything incubated in chicken eggs. Allergic to them. First time I was thankful for that allergy. Never had the flu. My brother was forced to have a flu shot while in the Air Force. Mandatory. He was sick for a week. He said the upside of that was the CO who forced them to take it had to take it also. He was down for 2 weeks, and took over a month after that to recover completely. Only shot I ever get is for typhoid, and that only when it’s necessary. I think I have had 4 in 69 years.

  • Mick

    Most of the scientists, Doctors and the co-conspirators of our Government have the population by the balls.
    Although we have had many breakthrough to cure many diseases in the past few decades like everything else they’re all going over board.
    The lack of ethics around the medical profession has gone wild and has been replaced by sheer greed and dollar signs.
    The medical degrees hung in most Doctor’s office don’t mean what it used to, they’re ready to feed you anything and everything with in general no objection from patients just because of that degree and what it is supposed to stand for..
    If people were to take the time to think about what’s happening they would realize that with all of those routine check-ups America should be the healthiest population on earth and shouldn’t have the need to go back for more but then yet, here we are, week after week, month after month , year after year being fed more and more drugs with warnings up the ying-yang and we keep forking those big bucks out then cry about how expensive it is,,,,Where are the good old days when doctors and drugs were only there when you were actually sick ???

    • Bob

      Ten years ago I vowed to stay away from doctors and I have never felt better. I don’t even go for checko[s and tests to make them richer. If you live right and eat right you don’t need all those useless tests every year unless you are a hypochondriac.

      • Vigilant

        Some years ago, the doctors in Italy went on strike for a month. Result: the mortality rate in Italian hospitals actually decreased!

        I have been blessed with good genes so I very rarely get sick. I would have to have one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel before I’d go to a doctor.

        Many people go to a doctor (or E.R.) if they develop a case of sniffles. My rule of thumb: if it’s not better after three days, then you MAY want to see a doctor.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Vigilant,
          Italy also has socialized medicine. Perhaps this is just one more reason to AVOID it like the plague!!!

    • Mike In MI

      Right, Mick -
      Now, Thanks to god-on-a-stick-in-the-WH we have to buy “health” insurance at whatever price some government actuary says the risks-of-getting-sick cost should be. Now, that’s scary. You know they’re going to mandate that we have to use it. Then, just to make sure, they’ll demand we go on some medically designed diet and it will be made illegal to eat anything the one-size-fits-all medical model doesn’t include on the three meals a day prescription. The foods will be cold for Obama’s atmospheric controls for saving the planet. It will be illegal to have a garden or fruit tree in your yard. And, for good measure if anybody farts it will cost some carbon credits.
      Welcome to Liberalized, liberated Obamaland.

      • DaveH

        Mike,
        You’re right. They will use the excuse that they’re paying for your medical care to outlaw all sorts of activity that they deem harmful to us. The healthcare bill was just a foot in the door for total control.

        • Kate8

          Mike and DaveH – I think you are right. With Obamacare, government will really consider our bodies government property, and mandate regular physical exams and ‘innoculatons’.

          It’s coming. We’d best be ready.

          Speaking of which, after refusing to allow a contractor to install a smartmeter at my house, PG&E has informed me that I MUST comply, and schedule an installation.

          These remote meters not only are resulting in TRIPLED energy bills, but subject our families to more discordant frequencies to damage our health. I wrote the PUC, stating that I was unwilling to subject my family to these dangers (as did many peope), but they ruled to allow them.

          How can we be forced to accept equipment that poses serious health risk? I plan to dig in my heels. I feel that I am a sovereign being and have a God-given right to decide what goes into my home.

          You all better be ready for this, too, because it is coming to your town soon.

    • Kate8

      What breakthrough cures? Our population today is sicker than ever.

      If you’re talking about surgical procedures, like heart by-pass and organ transplants, well…seems like we wouldn’t need those things if we had pure, nutritious food and water, and used the natural cures given us by nature.

      The truth is, until we are healthy in mind and spirit, we will not have bodily health, either.

      • Mike In MI

        K88 – Guess what I saw the other day?

        Cardiology studies asserting on the basis of a thousand thousand patients’ results that heart by-pass is unsafe, doesn’t work as intended for longevity and should be discontinued. Surprise!!!
        Other studies and experience in modern nutritional sciences show that the processes that cause cardiovascular diseases can usually be prevented or healed with nutritional therapies.

        That’s a “medical science” gotcha. “Bomb’R’Care will fossilize present medical therapeutics like a dead dinosaur…just wait and see.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Mike In MI,
          my father in law had a quadruple by pass a few years ago and it gave him a new lease on life!! He has worn me out cutting wood, splitting it and stacking it. I guess though, after that report he better watch it what with the longevity problem. He only had his 26 years ago!!! He’s 85 years old!!! If that’s not longevity, then I can’t wait till they come up with something that is!!!

          • DaveH
          • Bob

            Joe Good for him. The problem with a by-pass is that it doesn’t solve the problem. Many people have another heart attack because the new arteries clog as well. A friend of mine had a bypass years ago and dies because the new artery collapsed. Chelation Therapy will do a better job and is done intravenously.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Bob,
            It’s like the guy that was stranded on a rooftop in a flood. First a canoe came by and the guy said no thanks the Lord is with me. Then a larger boat came by and the guy says no thanks the Lord is with me. Finally a helicopter came by and he told the rescuer no thanks the Lord is with me. Well the water finally rose up and the guy drowned. When he came before the Lord, he said Lord why did you forsake me and let me drown?? The Lord said “My son, I sent you a canoe, a boat and a helicopter. What were you waiting for???
            If these people don’t change their way of eating and their health habits, after the nudge of a heart attack, then they probably deserve another! Too many think that now that they have the bypass, they can just go on living the way they were before it! My father in law got more exercise, ate better, and generally took better care of his body!! He lost over one hundred pounds!

        • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Jill

          That pisses me off.

      It costs a small fortune to achieve a Medical degree. It’s no wonder that the attraction to the profession is the big money. And that’s been going on since I got a pre-med degree over 30 years ago.

        Let alone the exorbitant cost of malpractice insurance. Obama/Pelosi/Peid don’t want tort reform as part of health care because it would it hurt those lawyers who so generously contribute to Democrats’ campaigns.

        Dave , you know that and I know that..
        If the Government wanted to really help with the health care issues and considering they always will have their paws in it in one way or another, they would try to lower the cost of getting a medical degrees and revise what the Hippocratic oath stands for to reestablish what the medical profession was meant to be, helping the sick…

        • DaveH

          All the Government needs to do, Mick, is get out of the way. The Free Markets would take care of the rest. Especially now with the Internet, Classes would be really cheap, but you can bet the Government would have their hands in that to protect the existing professionals. Read this:

          • Kate8

            Have any of you ever researched the history of allopathic medicine? It was never intended to be one of the true healing arts. It was intended to replace them.

            The whole thing was a business endeavor, primarily to sell pharmaceuticals. Doctors were put through rigorous training and indoctrination. They were not ever supposed to think outside the box. They were to be agents of business, and follow standard protocol as set up by the industry.

            It’s an interesting story, and one that ought to make everyone see doctors as the mind-controlled lemmings that they are.

            I have nothing against doctors as people, but they have become deified in our culture through brainwashing of the masses, and they are totally unworthy of it. They are mere mortals, after all, and largely lacking in common sense.

      I’m with you and also many of my friends but we have to deal with the low lifes, the felons, the illegals and most of all the fraud perpetrated on this country mostly by the left for decades.

    • Karolyn

      It doesn’t matter who’s in charge. Big Pharma will come out on top no matter what.

      • Mike In MI

        Karo -
        Ok, good, Big Pharma will win everytime. So let’s just lay down let them hook up an IV and they can just run quarts of poison (whatever they’re testing today) into all of us. What a dumbass attack from all quarters. But that’s liberalassm for ya!! I can’t win, I’m a vicdumb and I deserve whatever Oflubbertongue is wants to give me cause Damnocrap rule is good and benevolent. I’m a vicdumb and I deserve it.

        Yesterday, Pers. Liberty Alerts had an article about Vitamin D and it has been discussed before.
        William Falloon of Life Extension Foundation /magazine a few years ago did an editorial calling on then Presentdink Bush to start getting Vitamin D3 supplements to everybody – EVERYBODY. He showed that it would be cheaper than vaccines by a long shot. There would not be vaccine injuries, deaths and anaphalaxis or class-action court cases. It would protect people by building their whole neuro-immune status, protecting them against any virus, bacteria or fungus that comes along (not just the specific bug the vaccine is targeted against). It would cut risks of diabetes, heart disease and cancers.
        Best of all it could be done immediately without having to wait for months or a year ahead of time to get superior disease protection out to the people where it’s needed. But, no your government leaders have got their hands in the pot. So, you don’t get the best available at a reasonable price.
        JUST LIKE EVERYTHING GOVERNMENT DOES – YOU GET WHATEVER THEY WANT YOU TO GET – DOWN YOUR THROAT OR WHATEVER ORIFICE YOU WANT.
        The benefits of big, sprawling, bloated, provide what the “little guy” needs federal goverment. “I’m a democrud/liberal/helpful/deadly government worker and I’m here to help you.”

        IF THERE’S A BETTER, LESS EXPENSIVE, NO KICKBACK, HONEST, UNCORRUPTED, SIMPLE AND REASONABLE WAY TO DO SOMETHING…GOVERNMENT WILL AVOID IT.

        So, Karolyn and all you government handout addicts, please go crawl in a hole somewhere until Nov. 3.

        • Karolyn

          You know, Mike, you’re a big jerk! I’ve never said lay down. I write my congress people whenever I get alerts, especially about the FDA. My point is that there really isn’t a hell of a lot we can do other than with our votes and letters/emails; and even that ain’t gonna change anything because everything is so entrenched. And it IS NOT just this “administration” (I hate that word). It’s every administration!

      • Kate8

          There is only one way to stop Big Pharma, or any other Crony-Capitalist. Get Big Government out of the Marketplace. Put the control back into the hands of the consumers.
          I wish I could trust the Republicans to accomplish that. I can’t.
          There is only one real choice. Vote Libertarian. For Free Markets, Limited Government, Personal Responsibility, and Individual Freedom.

          • Kate8

            DaveH, The thing is, it’s not government controlling the corporatists. The corporatists are controlling government. I would go so far as to say that the Corporatist Elite ARE the government.

            That presents a whole new problem. In order to ‘get government out’, we would need to collapse the power behind it, which runs the marketplace and the money.

          • DaveH

            No, Kate. The Government is the fangs of the crony capitalists. If we defang them by voting only for small-government politicians, they will be powerless.

          • DaveH

            The questions to ask, Kate, are:
            Can the Crony Capitalists conduct unfair competition without the regulations of Government? NO!
            Can the Crony Capitalists force us to buy their products without the force of Government? NO!
            They are powerless with their bully-boys Big Government.

          • JeffH

            Kate8 and DaveH, we have to win the battle here first, on our home front, before we can begin to block the Globalist’s assault. This is where this country is so divided with the Republican/Democrat party system. You just can’t trust either one anymore. I would think 40, 50 or 60+ new faces in DC won’t really have an affect on this countries corrupt politics.

          • Kate8

            DaveH, JeffH, It would be nice if we could somehow elect good people, true statesmen, who would work to return us to our beloved Republic. It would seem though, that even should a few good men and women miraculously get in (I say that because they will be ignored by media, except, perhaps, to be flayed), the Big Boys usually offer them a deal they can’t refuse.

            Plus, we need to get enough of them to wield some power. Otherwise, they are just small voices in a din of clammor.

            What’s amazing is the willingness people seem to have to just accept the dehumanizing we are being subject to with every move of Congress, with every EO, and the expansion of corporate control.

            JeffH, I think you are right. We need to all be focused on the local level. That’s the only place to which we really have any access at all. It won’t be long, though, before localities are swallowed up by centralization. It’ already happening.

      You need to subscribe to Dr. Mercola’s site. We’re not talking bio terrorism here, we’re talking too much money being wasted on Big Pharma for unneeded pharmaceuticals.

      • Meteorlady

        We’re talking hugh pharmaceutical companies that make mega bucks off selling not so good drugs to the public. We have deaths – no problem – they have covered the cost of litigation when they priced their product. Have to take if off the market – no problem that price was also put into the initial pricing. Look at the recent FDA’s refusal to take a drug off the market that is banned in Europe. More people will die here and then, after the drug company has made their money, the FDA will step in and take it off the market.

        Fact is, if people would take care of themselves, eat right, exercise and stop eating chemically laden foods by large food processing companies, we would all be able to live drug free.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Meteorlady,
          you want big bucks?? My handicapped son has seisures and one of the meds he takes is depakote. He takes 10 a day and seeing as there’s no generic it costs about 2.00 a pill for that one med. that’s 20.00 a day for that. He also takes topiramate and it is 1.00 a pill and he takes 5 of those a day. dilantin is about 30.00 a month so thats 750.00 a month for just his seisures!!! He takes other meds as well so you can see what the pharma makes off of him!!! 9000.00 a year for seisures!!! There’s no natural cure for them either!!!

        The difference between bioterrorism and BigPharma is so scant as to be unrecognizable except for the party of the government in charge. One way you can tell is BigPharma comes in fancy suits. Bioterrorists hang out around Obama for protection and favoritism wearing headscarves.

    Another whop-t-do show of big money to the pharms. Gov’t and pharm gotta make a big show. I fully expect, and believe 100%, that their is a cure for cancer already created. But cancer treatment and prevention is a multi billion dollar industry that would dissappear if such a cancer vaccine was released. Big pharma greed, and gov’t payoff, is the reason we still have cancer. Greed by idiots that want money over peoples lives. And what in the he_l is congress wasting time on commercial loudness for when we have real problems, like illegals and a sour economy to worry about as well and many other things. Gov’t needs to concentrate on gov’t matters, not t.v. content, not flu shots, not the automotive industry, not sports and steriods. Jeez. Hey s.c., my son is drummer in a rock band called “Uncle Scam”. This flu shot scam is nothing more than a fear related propoganda to generate money for the pharms so they can pay off big brother to keep it’s mouth shut.

    • s c

      Mark, are you teaching your son who’s who and what’s what in politics? To me, ‘Uncle Scam’ is a polite way to describe what has happened to America
      via generations of dumbed-down products of public education, herds of career criminals in Washington and an epidemic of complacency disguised as patriotism.

    • Kate8

      Mark, There are cures for cancer that DO WORK, and cost next to nothing. Cancer is no more incurable than anything else.

      Did you know that cancer is a lab-created disease, meant to decrease the population, and be a mammoth profit industry while they’re at it? It is largely fungal in nature, and all information about natual cures (the only real cures) are aggressively suppressed.

      More and more people are figuring this out – that conventional medicine is a big con. That is why the power structure is desperate to ram through legislation removing all access to anything good and healthy.

      Radiation and poison cure nothing, and they do a LOT of damage.

      • B

        Oh if only more people would wake up and see that what you say is really true. We would definitely be extremely healthy and these “pharm” guys would be out of business.

        • Mike In MI

          B – Exactly! Why else do you suppose the Cysty Pharmas haven’t moved overseas like the other industries? No other country has as many educated dolts that think a test tube is superior to nature. Also, not as many mentally diseased people who would rather pad their portfolio than financially support reason and common sense.

    • DaveH

      Mark,
      A large part of any health maladies is Stress. It weakens the Immune System. And what subjects us to more stress than ever before? Big Government is what, with their taking of a large portion of our income, and messing in our personal lives. We need to downsize Big Government dramatically. That would go a long way in restoring our nation’s health (and wealth).

    • Meteorlady

      When I did get a flu shot – I was sick for about 5 days. That’s it. There is no way to help with the symptoms other than aspirin or something like Alka Seltzer.

    • Christin

      STOP getting the flu shot every fall.
      Side effects will go away!

      • dan az

        christin
        Not always!

        • Christin

          You can detox and clean out your system.

          I have never taken a flu shot.

          Unfortuanately, we bought into the scam and got our boys flu shots about five years ago. I asked my spouse, why we did that when we ended up not getting one either… so we never took our kids get one ever again. My son’s nutritionist told us to detox them.

          Are you saying the “shot toxins” are still in them all these years later?

          • Kate8

            Christin – Things like thimerosol(mercury) build up in the body and are stored their until they are detoxed. There are NO safe levels of mercury.

            Adjuvants like squalene cause the body to ‘allergize’ to itself, causing autoimmune problems which can increase over time, and increase our susceptibility to all kinds of diseases and conditions.

            There is much evidence to show that vaccines contain many contaminants, including animal DNA, which actually alter our own human DNA. Nowdays they are working to add stuff to cause sterility, as well.

            Fortunately, there are things you can do to detox mercury and other toxic effects. Some natual health practitioners have put together cleansing programs that clean and detox everything, safely and gently, over a few weeks or months. Health can be restored.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          dan az,
          she’s right, if you stop getting the shot, after awhile the side effects will go away!! If you stop taking them LONG ENOUGH!!! 60-70 years oughta do the trick!!!

      John – I think Dr. Mercola suggests things you can do on his website. Just go to his archive.

      The basic steps to clear of all health issues begins with: cleanse, alkalize (saliva test 4.7 to even 8), oxygenate. Oxygen is a powerful detoxifier.

    PLEASE! ! ! ! ! DON’T GET A FLUE SHOT. You’re just throwing your money away and helping big pharma line their pockets.

    The best way to combat the flue is put an onion in a bowl in every room of your house and you will not get the flue.I’ve did this for the past 2 or 3 years and i’ve not gotten the flue. Even if you do get it it will be a very mild case that will last only a few hours.

            not if it’s all natural fresh squeezed!! I can’t seem to drink the juice as I get indigestion from even a little. The fruit dosen’t bother me, though!

    • DaveH

      I think avoiding processed foods is the ticket. Try to eat only natural foods that have been unadulterated by the food processors.

    • Vigilant

      Excellent, Kirby! I heard about this some years ago and put it in the bedroom at night when my son had a cold/flu. It really does seem to mitigate the symptoms and probably is a preventative as well. Allicillin, if I’m not mistaken, is the natural antibiotic in onions (and garlic).

      Garlic is especially good, too. Plus, it keeps the vampires away (:-).

      I’ve taken oil of oregano every day for the past three years and have not had a cold! Compared to once or twice a year before I started taking it.

    • libertytrain

      Silly question – is that just an onion with the skin still on or one cut or skin removed. I need details — :)

      • Vigilant

        Just need to cut it in half to let it “breathe.”

        • Kate8

          Vigilant – You are right about oil of oregano, too. It is one of the most potent and active anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal products there is.

          It does have to be the wild Mediterranean oregano, however. It is a different plant from our native oregano. I like NorthAmerican Herb and Spice Oreganol. It’s the real deal. Expensive, but if you get the cheap stuff it won’t work.

          A close friend contracted valley fever a few years ago in Arizona, which is a serious fungul infection of the lung, and can spread to other organs, including the brain. It is often fatal, and can take years to recover. Conventional medicine has no treatment that even touches it (they throw antibiotics at it, but these only make fungal problems worse). For six months he continued to deteriorate, coughing so hard he dislocated ribs.

          We did some research and found the Oreganol, which is said to be one of the only things that cures this fungus. So we tried it, and in a few days it was markedly better, and in two weeks was entirely gone.

          I have recommended this to many people for anything from colds to more serious infecions. It works wonders.

          Olive leaf is another powerful anti-pathogen.

  • Meteorlady

    I am a patient of Dr. Wright in Auburn, WA. He is a natural medicine type of guy and is internationally known for his ability to help people. He has stated emphatically that these shots are BAD for children and not so great for adults. The only time I ever got sick with the flu was when I had a flu shot. Never do that again. I am healthy and happy without the pharmaceutical crap.

    Did you also notice that the “Swine Flu” was a non-event? Lots of publicity and scare tactics – but a non-event never the less.

    The fact that our government would give the Pharma Industry $2billion of our tax dollars is ludicrous. We don’t need more shots, we need an entire overhaul of how and what we put into our bodies! We need to start looking at “natural” – “god given” medications/supplements. God created everything for a reason – we just need to find out what each thing does and use it for what it was intended. But, this would put BIG PHARMA out of business. We need to stand up for our holistic / natural products as they are under attack right now. Please click on link below and make the call to your Senator or send an email to say “we the people” demand that this attack on our natural supplements be stopped! If this bill passes you will need a doctor’s prescription to get Vitamin C and probably pay big bucks because it will have to come from BIG PHARMA who wants control of every medication. Please do your part to stop this from happening – send it to everyone you know. Bombard their offices with your opinion on this topic – MAKE THEM LISTEN TO US!

    We’re talking about the flu here – the flu! So you’re in bed sick for a few days if you catch it. Big deal. Sure beats playing Russian roulette with the side effects of the flu vaccine. But what really gets me is that if you do suffer side effects from any vaccine, you have no recourse. You can’t sue the vaccine manufacturer, because they are protected from all liability by law. It leads me to ask: If vaccines are so safe, why are vaccine manufacturers excused from liability if something goes wrong? Sounds real fishy to me!

    Ladies and gentleman: no one here is talking about the Bilderberg/New World Order plan that is being carried step by step. First of all, this government we speak of here is NOT “our” government. It is owned, operated and manned by only those (save Ron Paul and, maybe, Dennis Kucinich) who are members of or approved by The Council On Foreign Relations – the U.S. operation of the One World Government Bilderberg Nazis and one of the aspects of their plan, let alone enslaving us, is to systematically KILL OFF 75-90% of the global population. In a recent lecture delivered by Bill Gates, prominent Bilderberg member, while he was continuing to sell the totally bogus Al Gore Global Warming scam, stated that using vaccines was one good way to halt population growth and even decrease it. This New World Order government of ours turns over nearly limitless funds (taxpayer money) to both Big Pharma AND to the heinous field of PSYCHIATRY. Their job is to turn this nation into drugged up zombies that can be systematically eliminated easily as they are induced into physical disability and complete mental apathy. Look at what’s in the vaccine: a toxin 50 times more poisonous than straight mercury, formaldehyde, detergent, ANTI-FREEZE,etc.! This is INSANE! This is Evil! But IT CONTINUES! We are paying tax monies that are then used to drug, enslave and kill us off! It’s long overdue for us to take our country back, take our lives back and, then take the planet back.

          A brain hicccup on my part re the Libertarian comment. But the rest of the post is correct.

          “Trying to kill off the population?” Where the hell does that kind of nonsense come from?

          I’m all for smaller gov’t, but not because of some half-baked theory that adds nothing to the discourse but paranoia.

          Kate8: As for your comment earlier that cancer is a lab-produced phenomenon, and that it’s completely curable, that’s another example of hare-brained thinking. Don’t just get real, get sane!

          • DaveH

            Perhaps it is naive to believe most conspiracy theories, Vigilant, but to take a stand that they are all untrue is equally naive. There are evil people in this world who will stoop to any sorts of lies or misinformation to achieve their goals. I have seen it on a local level, so it surely exists on the national or world level. If you haven’t known evil people who have gotten away with lying and plotting to achieve personal gains, I can only say you are a lucky man.

            I believe that too. I think they are probably springing up throughout our lives, but usually our healthy immune systems take care of them. It is only when the immune system is diminished by poor eating habits, life-style habits (smoking,etc.), or prolonged stress, that they can take hold and grow out of control.

          • Kate8

            Vigilant, The reason we are in such a mess is because there are so many people who think like you. You prefer to just believe the ‘experts’ without ever doing any research yourself. There is so much more going on than we are ever exposed to unless we look.

            I have been in natural health for forty years, and have seen health restored by the most simple of treatments. The people who are the most difficult to treat are the ones who have had too much medical intervention which caused too much damage.

            If you aren’t aware of the agenda to reduce the world population, then you are just not paying attention. But that’s okay. Just follow the other lemmings – their headed THAT way!

    Now I’ve read these, I have some comments. Example: BristolMeyers/Squibb. Plavix. $202 for a 30 day supply. Friend told me it costs $.005 to make each pill. That means it costs $15 to make a 30 day supply. It seems to me the profit from Plavix alone could fund research for any vaccine. The one thing I take started as a prescription and then went OTC. Benedryl. Haven’t been sick in years other than my blocked artery. That, of course was my fault for eating the wrong things. The one thing Benedryl couldn’t cure

    What’s going on with this site? My responses are not going through, and something I posted hours ago has disappeared. Will this appear?

    • DaveH

      I think there are a few software glitches, Karolyn, but I would certainly not complain, as I think it is wonderful for Bob Livingston to sponsor this great forum.

  • Karolyn

    I overheard some women in the thrift shop talking today. they were asking each other if they had gotten their flu shots yet and comparing prices between WalMart and the local pharmacy. I felt like jumping in on the conversation but knew it wasn’t worth it. I feel like I want to shout it from the housetops, but the people here would just chalk it up to one of “them crazy yankees.” Many sheeple in small towns, especially in the south.

    • DaveH

      I know the feeling, Karolyn, as I’ve been trying to wake people up to the dangers of Big Government for over 30 years, and it has mostly fallen on deaf ears. We have been thoroughly propangandized, by the public schools and by the MSM for many decades now. Things may need to get much worse before people finally wake up. Hopefully, it won’t be too late by then.

    • Vigilant

      Tut Tut! Let’s not start stereotyping the fine people from the South.

    • Raggs

      That sounded a little bit on the edge.

      But on the other hand I have not taken a flu shot in more than 5 years for the same reason… I still think obama dropped the flu on mexico upon his visit last year.

      • JC

        Raggs, I haven’t taken a vaccine sinse a polio shot in the 60′s.
        I don’t drink tap water as its laced with sodium flouride, I don’t eat fast food and I don’t take prescriptions.
        And I don’t get sick… ever.

  • GotSense

    No need to vaccine the people unhealthly substances.
    There is no shortage of land, every 6.5 plus billion people could fit in the state of Texas, with land left over for each of them to have a nice house. That leaves zillions and zillions of acres land to grow food. Big Pharm don’t need drugs to make tons of money. The more people on earth the more money to be made. This planet is more than big enough to support more than 20 billion people with still zillions and zillions of acres of land grow foods, and there is even more surface area to get water from the oceans and purify it for drinking water. This planet is more than big enough.

    I was informed today that the HPV vaccine is responsible for the deaths of 16 more people. This is the same vaccine that Uncle Scam and Big Pharma want young males to take. It’s enough to think that Dr. Frankenstein is real, and that the worthless SOB
    works for the FDA.
    $#@^* Big Pharma and his vaccines. So where are America’s MDs in this expanding mess? And what is Herr Obummer going to do about it?

    • Kate8

      s c, I heard one woman tell of her daughter getting the HPV vaccine, and she dropped to the floor before leaving the office. She was never the same again.

      The doctor said he was certain it was not vaccine-related. It would have ‘happened anyway’.

      The trouble is, I now know of many, many similar scenarios.

      BTW, the HPV vaccine is intended to cause sterility, as well. It is a eugenics measure.

      • Christin

        What does HPV stand for?

  • Mick

    Everyone should be aware about the word mandatory, it’s being thrown around a little too much for my taste especially when it’s put out by our government,mandatory insurance, mandatory vaccine etc…etc… the take over is near unless we the citizens stop the democrats cold in NOV,, our liberty depends on it.,,

    • Christin

      Mick,
      I agree we are hearing too much of the use of “mandatory” by those in gov. since BO took over.

      “Mandatory” = loss of Freedom.

    DaveR and Karolyn, If you are worried about Big Government, then what the hell do you team up and push pull all of the National Marxist Democrat Communist Party pukes. That the sorry conglomeration puts forward, like they did on the mall yesterday, every loony toon faggot freak that could be corralled was there wanting more socialism and government total control. . This jug eared, fold back toothed muslim pinhead in the WH is sure a door knob if not just a hard core marxist bastard. Either the synapsus in your mind is burnt out, from too many force feed loads of the crap democrats feed you or, you went and got a dd shot, Democrat dumbazzed shot!

    • Karolyn

      i41 – I do not see things in terms of black and white bur rather in shades of gray.

  • Paul

    It’s funny how Uncle Scam can write a check in my name and I don’t even have a say in it. One way or another we ultimately will pay for all their lies, scams and crimes.

  • Paul

    As far as the FatDumbAss FDA the first thing the next administration should do is dissolve it because they are ALL crooked and all in bed with Big (Phony) Pharma. We need to have someone with the balls to finally look out for the PEOPLE instead of lining their own pockets.

    • DaveH

      The best that we can do, Paul, is look out for ourselves. If we don’t care enough about ourselves to do the right things for our personal lives, we sure can’t expect anybody else to.
      Caring Government is just an illusion created by leaders to further their power and perks.

    I am against any kind of wasteful spending be it by the government, my wife or myself. I quit smoking ten years ago because I could not justify paying $2 for a pack of cigarettes and telling my daughter I couldn’t afford a $50 prom dress or something. People seem to complain about wasteful government spending only when it affects them unfavorably. Although Tom Delay? and others may disagree with me I consider it to be wasteful to pay congressman $120,000 or so a year when one can live comfortably if not lavishly on much less. If congress spent our money prudently as if it was their own we might not be so much in debt and taxes might not be so high. Would congressmen quit and drive a truck or something like that if they got paid less?
