In fact, according to an American Chronicle headline, Americans' Lack of Fear Shifts Sensationalistic Swine Flu Vaccination Propaganda Campaign into Overdrive.
Much Ado About Nothing?
In an attempt to scare Americans, the White House issued a fishy warning that up to 90,000 Americans may die of Swine Flu during this winter's flu season. This represents slightly more than twice the number of Americans who died in car accidents in 2008 and less than a quarter of obesity-related deaths that occur every year.
Yet, even with this dire warning, U.S. government officials aren't being consistent with their rumor-mongering scare tactics.
On Sunday, for example, the Centers for Disease Control announced that, this past Spring, 10% of all New Yorkers (about 800,000) had swine flu disease. Yet, Gotham City's streets aren't littered with the bodies of the dead or dying that we're led to believe will happen if we don't submit our veins to the government's needles.
The Cure May Be Worse than the Disease
Among the many concerns about the Swine Flu issue is having the federal government dictate a mandatory vaccination program.
“It comes down to the most fundamental of all freedoms. If government can force potentially dangerous substances into our bodies what, then, can’t government do to us?” asked Constitution Party National Committee Chairman Jim Clymer.
What Clymer (and others) are talking about is the potentially deadly consequences (literally) of the H1N1 vaccine.

In fact, according to GlobalResearch.ca, the CDC may even find the "collateral damage" acceptable:
This means that if the entire U.S. population is vaccinated (a stated goal of the CDC), we are to assume as a fact that 30,000 Americans will suffer debilitating or lethal side effects. Apparently the CDC considers this an acceptable level of collateral damage.
As unthinkable as this is (destroying or ending the lives of as many as 30,000 Americans), that is only part of the story.The novel H1N1 vaccine being developed must adhere to guidelines set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The FDA has announced that a vaccine will be accepted if it creates antibodies in 4 out of 10 recipients (40%), with at least 70 percent of those 4 achieving an antibody level believed to provide benefit. This means that an acceptable vaccine candidate would provide “protection” for 28% of vaccine recipients (70% of the 40%), or less than 3 in 10 recipients. The requirement drops to 18% efficacy for those over 65 years of age (60% of 30%).
So here are the facts, as documented by the CDC and the FDA:
As many as 30,000 Americans will be harmed by the novel H1N1 vaccine.
The vaccine may be ineffective in more than 7 out of 10 recipients.
And in case you think I am alone in my concerns, here is what several vaccine experts associated with the CDC and the U.S. government say on the subject.
"I am very skeptical of finishing vaccine before we know the appropriate dose to be included in each inoculation, before immunogenicity studies are complete, or before safety assessments have been finished," William Schaffner, MD, Chairman of the Department of Preventive Medicine at Vanderbilt University and a member of the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), wrote in an recent e-mail.

Perhaps this is why President Obama's Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius gave legal immunity against lawsuits that may arise to the makers of the vaccines. According to FoodConsumer.org:
The last time the government embarked on a major vaccine campaign against a newThe potential for fatal side effects may also be why, according to the video below, the makers of the vaccines aren't taking it themselves.
swine flu, thousands filed claims contending they suffered side effects from the shots. This time around, they will have no recourse.
With all of the evidence mounting toward a government-induced panic and a constitutionally-questionable mandatory vaccination program, the real question becomes: Why would the U.S government want to subject the citizenry to such dangerously piggish tactics?
