Don't get distracted folks. West Nile's been around this area for a while and it's NOTHING COMPARED TO THE SWINE FLU. There's not much we can do to prevent West Nile, besides not allowing mosquitoes to breed in stagnant water on your property. On the other, there's a lot we could have done to stop Swine Flu. We could've shut down the border for one. This is the one true mistake I believe Obama has made. He compared shutting down the border to closing the gate when the horses already escaped. Not true. We have brought in around a hundred thousand illegals immigrants since the outbreak of the flu. Many of those came from regions heavily contaminated with the disease. Illegals don't have to go through any medical diagnostics like good, normal immigrants. To ensure such third world dieases don't contaminate our society and threaten our children again, we must shut down the border and start deporting illegals from our country. Those who are for some reason allowed to stay must be checked for diseases and quarantined if necessary. Already in just three months more than 350 people have died in this country, five in this area, most of them not being fragile elders and/or children. This flu kills healthy adults and it's not even the flu season. Normal flu does not kill anyone after flu season. This swine flu is f***ing strong! We are in trouble. You're children are going back to school where there's a timebomb waiting. When are people gonna wake up and stop just allowing bad elements into our country, state and town?
