    We were married in each others heart, mind, body and soul. We were married in the eyes of our community and our respective Deities. We were married!

    •  How come everytime (0+ / 0-)

      I make a comment about the drug industry pure progressives pick up my comment like a piece of broken glass and jam it into my heart, as though my death would be an amusement to them.

      This is a very dark and ugly side of people.

        ... for me, it's simply because I've lost all patience with people whose willful stupidity is a danger to the rest of us.

        Pandemic flu is a public health crisis, which means each of us individually should cooperate with what's asked of us by those in our government charged with caring for the well being of the general populace.

        Does government screw up occasionally, even often? Of course, but pandemic disease prevention by mass vaccination is a simple concept easily executed, as opposed to, for example, managing a national economy in the face of globalization.

        H1N1 KILLS and in a different pattern than that of seasonal flu. Though you might survive with only mild symptoms, you could give it to me; with a compromised immune system, I'm at a very high risk for complications or death.

        In turn, I work with the youth at my church, and since kids are especially vulnerable to this strain, I have a responsibility to protect not only myself, but those I come in contact with. Consequently, I got vaccinated as soon as I could.

        We were married in each others heart, mind, body and soul. We were married in the eyes of our community and our respective Deities. We were married!
