Say Hello To The Swine Flu H1N1 Virus

| Filed under: Media MinutePolitik

Does this really make a difference?

According to US Officials, the "swine flu" that has killed over 150 and has millions worried, will now have a new name.

The flu shall henceforth be called the "2009 H1N1 virus. We kind of like swine flu better. It rolls more pleasantly of the tip of the tongue!

During a briefing on Tuesday, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, said "This really isn't swine flu. It's H1N1 virus. We want to say to consumers here and abroad that there is no risk to you, there is no scientific evidence whatsoever that there is any link between consuming pork, prepared pork products, and the H1N1 virus."

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano added that "We are establishing an operations coordination task force to deal with the 2009 H1N1 outbreak."

Basically, the international prices of U.S. pork dropped greatly this week when other countries like China, Russia, and the Phillippines cancelled their imports of pork from the US and Mexico.

So this seems more like a financial decision to change the name!

But, either way, it's important to note, you will NOT contract the swine flu H1N1 virus from consuming pork.

Now go have some bacon!

    OMG! Overrated! Why is the media blowing this out of proportion? People are dying in countries, namely Mexico, with little or no healthcare. It's just the flu!

    Actually, there is not a flu shot for this strain of the flu. last seasons flu shot was only effective against flu b. just thought you'd want to know.



  10. 10

    Everyone around the world now knows it as Mexican Flu. Which is what it is! It started in the hell hope that Mexico! This country needs to seriously be worried that we have Napolitano in an office way more than we do about the Mexican Flu. This woman is nuts!

    Re: Big Black Dick – MUAH!!!!!! LOVE YA!



  12. 12

    Have you heard the Muslim trash countries are offended at the name 'Swine Flu'? They say swine are unclean so the name is unclean. What dipshits! There dipshit immans are also proclaiming that true Muslims will NOT get swine flu. ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Once it wipes out half of their stupid population then the rest of the world can take over their countries and liberate their women and children from their disgusting men!



  13. 13

    there is NO flu shot for this, flu shots are vaccines for a certain strain of the virus, if u get the flu shot it wont work! and its always been H1N1, the bird flu that everyone was worried about is H5N1, not a new name its just the strain of the virus



  14. 14

    Oh, right it is about time for another virus that will kill us all, before it was anthrax, mad cow, bird flu, sars..its never ending..DONT BITEEE



  15. 15

    Re: Big Black Dick – #3 - I JUST ABOUT PEED!!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA



  16. 16

    I don't trust them. I don't eat pig anyway.



  17. 17

    new world order



  18. 18

    200,000 American's get the flu each year - thousands of those die - less the 70 people (not 70,000 just plain ole 70) have this strain of flu in the US…..no one has died. Seriously, lets get a grip.



  19. 19

    BIG FUCKING DEAL!!! THE REGULAR FUCKING FLU KILLS 36,000 PEOPLE A YEAR IN. JUST A LAME ATTEMPT TO JUMP ON THE MEDIA FEAR WAGON TO BOOST RATINGS.

    AND YOU FAT BODY YOU ALREADY LOOK LIKE A PORK CHOPPER SO NO NEED TO WORRY



  20. 20

    The reason people are worried is because the highly pathogenic strain of bird flu usually is mutated in pigs before it is passed to humans. Flu viruses change their genetic appearance constantly to evade immune responses so you can't just get a flu shot because this is a new strain - so there is no shot.



  21. 21

    Yeah, all the stupid vegetarians were so quick to criticize meat eaters about eating pork, when it has nothing to do with eating pork!



  22. 22

    WHAT MAKES THIS FLU UNIQUE, HOMOSEXUALS HUMAN OR ANIMAL ARE IMUNE TO THIS VIRUS…….IT IS BELIEVED TO TARGET HETEROSEXUALS ONLY. SPECIALLY AT THOSE 20 TO 40 YRS RANGE.



  23. 23

    Janet Napolitano should be strung up by the nuts for not closing the border.



  24. 24

    It's really a variation of the Spanish Flu. Should they call it that?



  25. 25

    La Raza is demanding that health workers be present to test all immigrants sneaking across the US border and to be given flu shots. If they test positive for the flu virus, they must be hospitalized until healthy. Health assistance stations have to be accessible 24 hours a day and free of charge. (of course) Since the weather is becoming warmer they want water also to be handed out.



  26. 26

    I am sexy, looking for some guy online for some fun. I created a profile on

    ****sugarbabymeet…COM where I write blogs, discuss with others in forum and upload my own video which I made. It is very fun there.



  27. 27

    Oh yeah, like others have said 36,000 people a year in the USA die from the flu each year. Thats roughly 100 a day… MAYBE only two people have died from swine flu in the USA.



  28. 28

    They should name it:
    God's population control!!!!
    No more mexicans… thank you God!



  29. 29

    Re: topper – Instead of that what about sending them back PRONTO to their shithole Mexico???? I won't care to donate a few millions just to see that happening that will actually be a better use than supporting Octo mom



  30. 30

    you should get yourself checked out piggy



  31. 31

    fuckin mexicans..dirty bastards.



  32. 32

    perez: FYI swine flu is a combination of multiple viruses: North American swine influenza, North American avian influenza, human influenza A virus subtype H1N1, and swine influenza virus typically found in Asia and Europe.

    they probably switched it to H1N1 bkz thats what the drugs, tamiflu and relenza, target.

    the more you know!



  33. 33

    Ok, so, there is a valid point being made here. This "swine flu" is actually a hybrid and a mixture of bird, human, and pig influenzas…so hey.

    this is why homosexuality should be criminalized. now we have yet another gay disease floating around society caused by homsexual activity (with swines as opposed to monkeys with aids)



  38. 38

    Re: Kate27 – All of the sick ones is going to come on over here and make it even worse. GREAT



  39. 39

    the reason that people are freaking out is because the H1N1 strain (which is a combination of the common influenza and swine influenza (as comment 34 pointed out)) is because they're afraid that it will become another "spanish flu" which killed about 50-100 million people worldwide. THAT'S why people are freaking out. especially since the 1918 spanish flu pandemic targeted healthy people and caused cytokine storms(look it up) within their bodies which is probably what killed the majority of 'em. it's easier said than done to just "get a flu shot" to protect you from what could potentially end up as a pandemic.

    p.s. WHO raised their pandemic alert level to 4…and it's out of 6. do you think that the media is still blowing this out of proportion? if so, imagine if they didn't say anything about this and people were dying left and right. wouldn't you wish that they blew it out of proportion so you would at least know about it?!



  40. 40

    Perez, you haven't mentioned that there are reports to show this "H1N1" virus showed that it was partially man made……. just saying.

    but to the first person who commented [[and also everyone else that reads this]]… seriously it's not just THE FLU…. THERE'S MORE TO IT ((READ UP ON REAL THINGS PEOPLE)). BUT if you go and get a flu shot thinking it'll cure you, you're going to inject NOT just the flu shot but ALSO the bird flu shot AND this new strand of flu. so you really think you're body and all your white blood cells could handle that?! Beat nobody knew the government is also trying to CUT THEWORLD population to 5 billion PEOPLE… * www.infowars.com *



  41. 41

    what a mess,if its not swine,virus,where does the virus come from,what is it



  42. 42

    Re: rascal – I hope NOT!!!! hopefully this mexican virus will help to stop mexicans into our country!



  43. 43

    this virus is supposedly composed of virus genes from human and animals… if you get a flu shot it will only prevent the human genes part of the virus. its got nothing to do with having no flu shots, or as someone quoted "mexico is poor and has little healthcare". FYI bitchhhhh



  44. 44

    perez your an asshole rager and a dipshit



  45. 45

    Just so yall know. This should officially be called the Mexican flu. Amazing that Jayno is lost on this….yup.

    Swine flu? Please?

    People. Jayno does not give a crap about our borders. She was the most pathetic AZ governor. Loved that she left AZ…….Hate her new position.

    Yall….don't trust this swine.



  46. 46

    Re: Crystal. – Not buying into most of your post. My point is that this is already level six, by definition. Pandemic.

    Me? Not so worried. I take precautions. Scare the crap out of the dumbasses. Must work for you.

    Swine flu already reached Venezuela :( the horror lol

  53. @v@ says – reply to this


    53

    Not only that, but I just read somewhere that none of the pigs tested positively for the virus. They're thinking now that it might be a human-human component, not a swine-human component. Possibly no swine at all in that virus. That would rule out that Veradera pig farm. They should wait for the facts before they work everyone up into a froth. Lots of pork sales have been lost if it turns out that way.

    600 some people die in the U.S. yearly from tuberculosis. 12,000 or so contract T.B. every year. This is a mild virus so far. The news media have lost their objectivity, AND their marbles. Stop scaring the shit out of the populace when it's not, as yet, necessitated.



  55. 55

    The child who died in TX is not a US citizen CNN are reporting. At what point do we say enough already and actually protect our borders?



  56. 56

    i think the federal goverment needs to step it up..first off we need to have a secretary of the HHS already.;.i think it is soo rediculous that president obama came into this office so ill prepared on the part of his cabinet..the congress needs to put politics aside and the well being of our nation first.

    and also isnt it kinda fishy how all the sudden this flu breaks out andspreads soo quickly out of no where..there just isnt something right about it..especially right around obamas end of his first 100 days

    politics are shady



  57. 57

    *coughs* ffs!! =)



  58. 58

    What idiot thought it came from pork? It's in the name…FLU……and all over the media that it is spread like any other virus. I prefer to call it Pig Sick. It's catchy.



  59. 59

    it doesnt matter that they changed the name, swine flu sounds soooo much more scarier and dirty. i think i will continue calling it swine flu like the rest of the world.



  60. 60

    bright idea MELISSA. Why dont you let the government give you the flu instead and give them more money to perpetuate stories like this? Flu shots are a great way to get the flu if you havent noticed.

    The best way to NOT GET THE FLU is to avoid eating crappy food like bacon, avoid eating food other people prepare, wash your hands all day and shower at night. So unless you consider Bacon a food that "keeps you well" eat more fruit and vegetables and less animals that spend their lives in FILTH.



  61. 61

    Conservatives such as Rush Pigbaugh are blaming it on immigrants. Fat old white men spreading hate.



  62. 62

    The kid who died in the US was a Mexican citizen. Let's hope he didn't infect anyone with the deadly strain. Protect our borders…NOW!!!



  63. 63

    ohhh I think that!!! this is a horrible epidemia please stop this

    Re: Kate27 – whatever you dumb whore… if you had any common sense you would know this could have happened anywhere… and by the way it was a co-owned AMERICAN CO.'s pig farm located in mexico that started this off! This was bound to happen at some point in time… HELLO! why do you think they have been preparing for a pandemic flu to happen at some point in time! and by the way u racist bitch MEXICANS/indigenous people were HERE IN NORTH AMERICA FIRST! SO SHUT THE FUCK UP! we didnt travel here in boats on the mayflower…

  66. nane says – reply to this


    66

    the virus is universally dangerous…. because is a new type, so there's no effective vaccine yet….. and everyone can be infected. SO THIS IS SERIOUS
    for the spring breakers : i guess that what happens in Mexico doesn't always stays in Mexico.



  67. 67

    I think Bea Arthur started the entire thing,, seriously think about it,, the last time we heard of the swine flu was back in the Maude days,, now Beas in the news again,, we have swine flu, i havent worked out my theory just yet, but there is a definite connection.

    BS

    If you substitute "i's" for the "1's" it becomes the hiney flu.



  71. 71

    Re: jayzee
    haha, that's fine if you don't buy into it. it's a good thing that you're taking your precautions though and not blowing it off as something that you could just "get a flu shot" for. i would agree that they are blowing it just a bit out of proportion…but hey, better safe than sorry. and at least i've done my research, so i can't really be categorized as all of those "dumbasses", as you call them. that was a bit unnecessary if you ask me. i've done my research.



  72. 72

    LMFAO!!!

    Colonial Medical Supplies just received new shipment of 3M N95 Masks. All of our distributors are already out of stock. Once current stock is sold any additional shipments will be delayed. Masks can be purchased at any one of our 3 retail locations or online at www.colonialmed.com



  74. 74

    haha, once again we see the comfort item. and once again we see more people wearing the mask, thinking it will protect them from the virus. gosh, doesn't anyone do research anymore?!?! virus can penetrate a mask like that, with ease.
