    Re: Whats your take on H1N1

    Spreads easier then flu... Less deadly then flu now.. Reaction was too much by media and people.

    Oh... and it ruined the swine market to the tune of several tens of millions of dollars for a few weeks now. Thanks media.

    I'm not real worried yet, but I'm not much of a worrier in general.

    Glad the media is doing this, but I agree that it should have been called something other than swine flu.

    Re: Whats your take on H1N1

    Not worried. I mean, it sucks to have another strain of the flu pop up this late in the year with the real flu season wrapping up but I can't say I'm losing any sleep over the pig flu. If I were in the distinct minority who did get it, I wouldn't be concerned about my life or anything.

    I think in a few weeks nobody will be talking about it.

    Re: Whats your take on H1N1

    Look for pork producers to respond over the next few months with some counter ag-terrorism in creating 2 new strands of flu called "beef flu" and "chicken flu"...



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Re: Whats your take on H1N1

    Just another flu virus, only with a name. Nothing more and nothing less. The media is blowing it WAY out of proportion. Kind of like they like to do with snow storms.

    More than a few weeks, there's talk it could take a year for the prices to recover. My dad's hog prices dropped $20 per head, and it's not like hog farmers have had any breaks in the last 10 years

    Re: Whats your take on H1N1

    The impact on the hog industry was terrible. Maybe some more research prior to going all out with the story would have been a good idea.

    Yes... Cause the industry is all about ruining others, creating lies, and being dishonest.. Just like our government...

    Get a life... Or tell me you were adding alot of sarcasm which didn't come through.
