Ah, but that's not true. Check the stats for Mexico deaths. H1N1 has been most lethal for those people between the ages of 20 & 45. What happens if the virus develops into a pandemic that kills the caregiver generation, leaving behind children & the elderly? Do you really think that's a good thing?

With no disrespect intended, I for some (obviously stupid) reason thought that this particular CD form might really be a forum for debate. Mea culpa!

What is the difference between saying ALL the people are needed, SOME of the people are needed, and NONE of the people are needed. The first two are admissible premises, but the third one is not?

Ok...so all you gay haters out there, be happy. Thats all I have to say. Dont talk about our lifestyle when you bring up topics such as 'birth control, over-populated, and ecetera topics' telling us, "it should be between a man and woman" and how can 2 homo's make a child and all that non-sense. BE HAPPY!

let things take its course, dont be mad.

well i learned something from this swine flu pandemic and that is if a super bug pandemic gets going we are doomed!!!! it will spread all over the world in a matter of months... mexico should have been totally shut down from day one... borders should have been closed and all air traffic grounded to contain the pandmic. the more people you pack on planet earth the more future pandemics will turn into major epidemics. it's just a matter of time nature allways will win in the long run..if a super strain gets going that has an incubation period of like 10 days it could be all over the globe before they even relize it's on the loose... and by then it would be to late.. they need to throw more money at the cdc to study these pandemics!!! insted of spending billions of dollars on porkulous trimmings like bridges to nowhere giving free welfare to illegal aliens and so on..

the cockroaches will rule the world some day.

Before we talk about the second coming, or the apocolypse, how about going back to where this thing started. From all best assumptions it was just a little boy in Mexico got the flu, went untreated, spread, now ya'll are talking minimizing the world's population. mmmjmmmmm, what's that song, "Everybody wants to go to heaven, but, nobody want's to go now"
Tell you what, anybody that is so worried about world population that they have such a big problem with it, then why don't you do something about it by removing your worthless carcass off the face of this earth first. All these damn complainers, everybody sits and complains, like an old bunch of women at a sunday school church in the 50's, sit and complain, whine and gripe. Do nothing about it, just complain whine and gripe.
Let's hear a positive solution. Anybody got one good thing to say bout this USA we're living in?

I would like to see it kill off the entire White House occupants so we can start over from scratch.

It is a flu!! not unlike other flu's its just that this flu does not have a vaccine because the scientist's who make the flu vaccine did not predict this strain of flu. It is also because this flu comes from a place like Mexico people are freaking. They are now saying a farm worker pasted it on to the pigs but after the research I have done I think it may be the other way around and they are dancing around the facts. It is a flu, get a box of kleenex sit and watch old movies call in to work and chill. Like any flu people can die. If you are a senior or have respiratory problems you can die. This flu is no different.

He says that the only way that the earth is going to survive in the future is a mass die off of people and maybe the swine flu may be the ticket.

I asked him if he would grieve if his family and friends died from a huge mass epidemic of the flu. He said sure but that would be fate and God's will.

I think he is right and that eventually the world is going to see something really big that kills many people and it is God's way of thinning the herd. What do you think?
The world would only be better off if the swineflu took all the members of armies and police forces and govt spy groups and airforces and military industrial complexes and the worlds richest people and the chances of it targetting just those groups is very unlikely
