Flu - H1N1 and other interesting tidbits

Flu shot made where?
Did you know that one of the reasons there is a shortage of flu shots is because we don't make it? Most of our flu shot medicine comes from Canada. Canada is in a spot because while America is demanding more they need it for their citizens.

Common Flu vs. H1N1
Common flu deaths in an average year 36,000 H1N1 deaths so far 10,000
5% to 20% of the population gets the flu;
more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related complications; and
about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes. From CDC

The new estimates suggest that about 15% of the population -- one in six Americans -- has had the H1N1 swine flu. From Web MD
Yes I realize the flu season isn't over yet but you would think EGore (Al Gore) is behind this hysteria. Then again if he was the H1N1 might be called People Warming. Just be careful.

Common Sense Tips
Keep hands away from face, don't pick your nose, and be polite if someone wants to shake your hand and just say its the flu season just want to be cautious but it could be for your benefit also. And remember if you do get sick throw out your toothbrush the minute you start to feel better. No fear, just common sense.
On to other topics.

Will the real first black president stand up
Bill Clinton was labeled and called himself America's first black president. Now during a recent trip to Asia President Obama called himself "America's first Pacific President." You figure it out. I just want an American as my president.

So much corruption so little jail time
Cleveland Schools paid over $145,000.00 for printers they never received. Daniel Burns was the business manager for Superior Offset Supplies before coming to Cleveland as one of the top school officials is to blame. He could get up to 30 years.
BUT maybe, just maybe School Official Burns is innocent. Maybe the printers were hijacked and sent to the White House where President Obama is using them to print money for all his programs.

Whats another TRILLION?
President Obama is on a spending frenzy with no end in sight. He is making President Bush Jr. look like a tightwad and he hasn't even had a full year in office yet. America is broke folks. If China demands money on the debt we owe them there is only one way to pay it and that is land. Thats how we acquired Alaska from Russia and the Louisiana Purchase from France. Gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that Hawaii, California or another state could fly the Chinese Flag. Good Ole Slick Willy signed Long Beach Naval base over to the Chinese back in the 90's so why not land? It could happen.

Don't Be Square This Christmas
Oh boy. I bought square Christmas cards at a dollar store. They are very well made. I didn't understand the cheap price until I got them home. Stamped on the back was Woolworth which dates them. For those of you who don't know Woolworth was a store that is now defunct. I still sent them out to my clients and a few friends anyway. I ran out of stamps for the second batch so went to the post office to mail them at the counter. The clerk told me it would be an additional 22 cents because the cards are square. Not over sized, just square! I asked what would happen to the others that I put in the mailbox? He said they will either be returned or arrive with postage due. I can just imagine my accounts having to either pay the 22 cents or go down to the post office to claim the card. Can you believe this, square cards cost more. Maybe I should of bought triangle just to make a point.

Thats a wrap you can get back to your other emails now.
Gotta GoGo!!
