As of 12/11/2009 it is estimated that more than 50 million people in the United States (1 in 6) have been sickened with H1N1 (aka Swine Flu). No one knows how many have been exposed as supplies of the vaccine continue to be delayed. If things continue too much longer, the distribution of vaccine may become irrelevant. A typical government operation. While I do think that government has a part to play in an actual emergency – the government should not create the emergency nor should it exploit the emergency.
Fox News reported today that our benevolent government has said that the distribution of H1N1 flu virus has been slowed by freezing weather. The vaccine is not shipped in climate controlled trucks – the freezing weather would endanger the vaccine were it to be delayed in the sub-freezing weather wracking most of the United States.
It seems too rich that simultaneously Copenhagen is hosting the wacky Global Warming convention. I love the irony of the whole thing. The excuse they give for not being able to handle the first makes the meeting in Copenhagen about the second irrelevant. Is such irony lost on the left? No doubt.
