Hey, Remember When The Media And Government Tried Their Scare-a-thon With The Swine Flu?

How’d that work out?

About a quarter of the swine flu vaccine produced for the U.S. public has expired — meaning that a whopping 40 million doses worth about $260 million are being written off as trash.

About 30 million more doses will expire later and may go unused, according to one government estimate. If all that vaccine expires, more than 43 percent of the supply for the U.S. public will have gone to waste.

So, adding it all up, we will approach nearly $500 million billion (whoops. I was thinking of writing half a billion) in wasted vaccine. One of the reasons?

Swine flu turned out not to be as deadly as was first feared. About 12,000 deaths have been attributed to it — or roughly a third of the estimated annual deaths from seasonal flu.

If the media and government had listened to actual doctors, they might have learned that the Swine Flu was rather benign, it was just hitting at an abnormal time for the flu.

Good thing the government rarely runs like this, otherwise, ObamaCare might be in trouble /sarcasm off.

    I believe that is a typo and should be “$500 million,” not billion.

    Obama and the Progressive govern using “Crisis”. We are all learning that. Even Bill Clinton has cautioned the president against using it too often as its intended effects diminish with each usage.

    Americans it seem dont like for things to change very rapidly and this is just so annoying to the progressives who want a new world order.

    So Crisis it is…..Americans rush to a crisis and solve it so they can get back to being Content with life in general without the though of a crisis in the back of their minds.
