Swine Flu is Real

Swine flu is real. Yes it is.

It's unfortunate that it's being blamed on our innocent porcine neighbors. They had nothing to do with it. The blame falls squarely on another breed of swine, the Capitalist Pig.

This disease was bred in the packed pig factory farms of Mexico, transmitted to humans by flies feeding on huge shit and piss ponds, and spread about the world through our overwhelming reluctance to stay in one place.

Whether or not this particular virus transmits between humans remains to be seen. It's difficult to tell this virus from regular flu virus based on symptoms.

Accompanying the "swine flu" epidemic is the corporate farm PR epidemic. It started in Mexico, attempting to blame local respiratory illness in the vicinity of factory farms on the swine flu, hyping panic over a swine/avian flu pandemic, distracting the source of the disease through the smoke and mirrors of media hyperbole.

Yes, swine flu is real, and the swine are smirking through their snouts in corporate boardrooms across the globe.

  1. We should call it what it really is, the corporate flu.

    Also of note is all the children that have been dying in that region for years, deaths the company and physicians blamed on respiratory illnesses like pneumonia. Sure, it probably was pneumonia that ultimately killed some of them, but what's the source of the pathogen that caused the initial infection?
