Government to Force Swine Flu vaccinations?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
If there was any doubt in your mind that America has a government out of control, then you have only to look to what the US Department of Health and Human Services is on the cusp of doing… or TRYING to do!
We are, of course, referring to HHS’s insistence on ALL Americans being vaccinated against swine flu.
Last time I looked, and that was barely a minute ago, this was still (maybe temporarily) America, and, as long as it is America, the government does not have the right to command me to have the vaccination. At least NOT YET!
THIS is the kind of thing we warned of and we were boo’ed down, told we were idiots, and didn’t know what we were talking about. It is called POWER and a LUST FOR POWER! And, frankly, some of Obama’s cabinet members and Czars seem to us to be “drunk on power” already! Obama’s Administration is rapidly reaching critical mass and if he doesn’t soon put the brakes on his over zealous henchmen, he is going to find he has an implosion on his hands -- one from which his administration will not recover.
If you have gotten this far in this piece and STILL have no clue as to what we are making reference to -- then we suggest you read the article entitled: “Sebelius: Americans must get swine flu vaccination." You will find it HERE.
I am old enough to remember the fiasco with a swine flu vaccine back in the 1970’s. Here, in the US, we had more people die from the swine flu vaccine than actually died from the disease itself! Back in 1976, a swine flu vaccine was used to inoculate 43 million people to stop the spread of a virus that was first detected at a military base in New Jersey. Oh, and that expected swine flu outbreak, the one the government was so sure was going to absolutely swamp the medical community in America and kill so many Americans -- never happened! But -- hundreds of those receiving the vaccine developed a paralyzing neurological condition called Guillane-Barre Syndrome, and dozens died. For more on this go HERE.
There are concerns among some in the medical community that this NEW vaccine could be dangerous for those who have chronic diseases. (In the interest of “full disclosure, “Yours Truly” has a chronic disease and my immune system has been somewhat compromised.)
Parents with young children are concerned for their children’s health because this new swine flu vaccine is made with Thimerosal, which is a mercury-based preservative that some believe is associated with autism and other developmental problems. According to a report found HERE
Patients, or parents, with such concerns can ask for vaccine stored in single-dose vials. Only multi-dose vials contain vaccine made with the preservative.
And, by the way, Americans are not the only people concerned about the possible risks posed by this new H1N1 Vaccine. There is an article at the “Times On Line” entitled: “Death Link To Swine Flu Vaccine.” If you are the least bit concerned over the safety of this new vaccine you should read this article. You’ll find it HERE.
My intention is not to be vaccinated with this new swine flu vaccine. I made my mind up on this some time ago. So, for me, it is a settled issue. Again, for me, the REAL problem is the possibility the US Government may take it upon themselves to FORCE Americans to be vaccinated. And that is when the proverbial “ship hits the sand” in America. I don’t mean barricades in the streets manned by gun wielding PO’ed Americans. I mean Americans who will NOT stand by and allow a government, any government; to FORCE them to do something they do not want to do! We are referring to Americans who simply will not show up at their doctor’s offices and health centers, and clinics, etc, to get their shots.
In the next few days and weeks the airwaves of America, TV and Radio, as well as the print media, will be swamped with ads by the federal government extolling the virtues of getting your flu shots for the H1N1 “Swine Flu” shots. There are some serious concerns about this vaccine and they have not been cleared up satisfactorily for the American people. So there will be millions of Americans who simply will not allow the government to inject chemicals into their bodies -- no matter how much cajoling the government does, which leads me to wonder how long it will be before the government decides to bring out the batons and truncheons and round us up like sheep and herd us to vaccination centers and use physical force to inject our bodies.
You’re right. It DOES sound like a bad science fiction novel. But it also sounds like what was happening in parts of Western Europe in the 1930’s and 1940’s. In fact, much of the action(s) of the Obama Regime reflect the world history of that era. That, alone, is frightening beyond my ability to express it.
One must consider, as we have been advising for months now, the socialist regime now in power in the American government. They truly believe they have a mandate to do whatever they wish as long as they can bill it as being for the “common good.”
How long, America before you understand that a socialist regime IS in power in Washington and it is shredding the Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, as surely as any paper shredder could ever do. To them the constitution is an inconvenient piece of paper and, at best, was only meant as “a suggestion” and, with their superior intellect, it is no match for their drive to force a “socialist utopia” on what used to be “the land of the free and home of the brave.”
