The current buzz is over the Swine flu (h1n1) and its related vaccination. The government is pushing this vaccine as if it also contained a cure for cancer. There are PSA’s and countless news articles. In New York, they are requiring health employees to become vaccinated as “a term of their employment”. I saw an interview with one such worker opposed to the vaccination. She said that to get the vaccine, you must sign an informed consent. She doesn’t want to sign the document because she doesn’t agree. Doesn’t that just epitomize government. Require you to sign your “consent” while you really have no other choice. It is like in school when you are required to do volunteer work to graduate. It isn’t volunteering if it is mandatory. I think it is more like involuntary servitude. Unlike the healthcare worker, the child is required to attend school. They have no choice in the matter, but, like the vaccine, it is all for the good of the community.
If h1n1 poses such a big threat, I think that all key members of government should be vaccinated. They should all sit in a row on the white house lawn while cameras role. I’m talking about Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, and all cabinet members, especially Kathleen Sebelius. We might as well vaccinate William Ayers and David Axelrod since they run the shadow government. I happen to fall in the area of people that have an adverse reaction to the flu vaccine, so I will be opting out. But if it were a possibility and it really was such an urgent risk, I would like to see our government vaccinated first.
