Washington, D.C. -Conservatives on Capitol Hill and throughout America are planning to reject the massive scale swine flu vaccination that the government has planned for this fall.

Some conservatives are even concerned that the swine flu vaccinations are just an excuse for the government to inject the population with microchips.

Greg Garrison (Indianapolis, WIBC) is the local conservapawn that is the lead in to The Fat Man, Limbaugh, every day of the week here in Indy.

What would Limbaugh say about getting your shot?

"Limbaugh addressed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, saying "I am not going to take it, precisely because you are now telling me I must....I don't want to take your vaccine. I don't get flu shots." Later, he added that if "you have some idiot government official demanding, telling me I must take this vaccine, I'll never take it." (Oct. 7) On the same show, he said, "The next time you hear, 'The government says...' don't believe it. You'll be healthier, trust me."

Now, over the years, I've heard GG bless the sainted Fat Man many times, even going so far as to imitate inflection and tone of the Fraking Master of Ditto.  One has to wonder what GG thinks now.

"FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) - A well-known Indianapolis attorney and talk show host lost his son-in-law over the weekend to complications from the H1N1 virus. Greg Garrison said his son-in-law's struggle with the virus illustrates the struggle many are having with access to the H1N1 vaccine.

Health officials in Indiana had hoped to have more H1N1 vaccine on hand by now. That vaccine certainly could have saved the life of 37-year-old Pete Barajas.

"He was highly sought after for his expertise, and a friend to everybody," Garrison said of his son-in-law. "Just a giant of a kid."

WIBC's Garrison said Barajas battled H1N1 for a month. Just last week, Barajas seemed to be recovering.

"A week ago today, he was sitting up in his bed, focusing, answering questions, lifting his legs off the bed," Garrison said. "And then we got a blood clot situation and that's just because he spent so long down."

Barajas died at Community Hospital North over the weekend."

It is always a horrible thing to lose a relative, but before you feel sorry for GG, know that GG is RICH, and if he REALLY wanted a flu shot for himself and his family he would have gotten it.  

Hey!  Get vaccinated.  Don't be like Limbaugh or these other luddite God Will Save You self-flagellating dittohead Teabaggerz.  Don't be a yutz.

Greg - I don't forget that you conservatives were being all self-righteous when my friends were dying of AIDs so I feel justified in being a little self-righteous with people like you...  I don't like you.  In fact, I think you are a moron and I blame you and your fellow conservatives for people not getting shots.  That said, I feel for your family.  Get them vaccinated.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
