    Forty years ago, a man was asked the question, "When will the United States elect a black president?"

    "When pigs fly," he replied.

    Well, in 2009, 100 days after President Obama was sworn into office, we have swine flu.

    Putting President Obama in a joke with pigs is extremely offensive!

    To the pigs.

    As an employee of a major retail pharmacy, I am tired of people asking for hand sanitizer and face masks. We're sold out! Our warehouse is backordered on masks.
    I've been telling people to check Home Depot for masks, but maybe I should just tell them about this one...

    Ironically, what may push the next superbug into existence is one of these relatively minor bugs which makes people take anti-biotic abuse to the next level...

    Thank god for the liberal push to urbanize. I was worried there for a second we wouldn't keep creating ideal conditions for civilization killing bugs to develop and spread[thinking]

    That's why when this comes back in the fall it'll likely be more deadly. I can't wait!

    Nagin quarrantined in China over possible flu exposure

    Good. Maybe they'll toss him into an incinerator just to be on the safe side.

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/06/07/china.nagin.flu.virus/?iref=mpstoryview

    (CNN) -- The mayor of New Orleans, Louisiana, has been quarantined in China after possible exposure to the H1N1 virus, his office said Sunday.
    New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin flew to China as part of an economic development trip, his office said.

    New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin flew to China as part of an economic development trip, his office said.

    Mayor Ray Nagin, who traveled to China on an economic development trip, flew on a plane that carried a passenger being treated for symptoms suspected to be from the virus, commonly known as the swine flu virus, the mayor's office said in a statement.

    Nagin, his wife and a member of his security detail have been quarantined in Shanghai, China, though all three are symptom free, the statement said.

    "The mayor is being treated with utmost courtesy by Chinese officials," the statement said.

    Ceeon Quiett, the mayor's director of communications, told CNN that Nagin had been sitting beside a passenger who "exhibited the symptoms of H1N1," but Nagin showed no signs of illness.

    "We have talked with him and he is in good spirits," Quiett said, adding that there was no indication how long the quarantine would last.

    I'll start....No.

    My wife and kids had it and I didn't even catch a sniffle.

    I'll probably be on my death bed come this winter.
