A headline in today’s newspaper proclaims “U.S. to vaccinate millions against swine flu.” Also today, Reuter reported, WHO says new flu “unstoppable”, calls for vaccine. From the same news service we learn the U.S. federal government will spend $884 million to buy more ingredients to make an H1N1 swine flu vaccine.
Fred Burks over at the National Examiner has written an excellent article on this topic which includes a revealing video clip from the CBS investigative program 60 Minutes. Before making your decision on whether or not to get the swine flu vaccine when it comes out, you should watch that 60 Minutes clip from 1979 and read Freds article.

On these industrial-scale hog farms, pigs are jammed together so tightly that they can barely turn around. There are so many of them that they produce many tons of manure, which is just dumped into giant open ponds.
This is the Wall Street of hog farming. On both Wall Street and at giant meat production farms, the hogs feed at the public trough.

Indeed, the companies went hog wild, knowing that governments wouldpick up the pieces if things crashed
