Flu Shot Doing Poor Job of Protecting Older People This Year

fritz1968 Re:Quit promoting it when it doesn't work (205 comments)

Got a better idea, bozo?

Yes, i do. use homeopathic remedies for prevention. I got the flu once in the past 10 years while using homeopathic remedies. This years harsh strain of the flu did in my whole family. We passed it around between each other for about 10-12 days.

And I did get a flu shot once. Once! Within five months of getting a flu shot, I got the flu.

When I went to the doctor (who diagnosed me with the flu), he asked me if I got a flu shot within the past 5 months. Then I told him I did, he replied that what usually happens when the flu shot wear off is that the patient gets the flu. Both my wife and I have run into other doctors (family practice doctors) who refuse to get a flu shot because of that reason.

The study that i want to see is a comparison of those who get a flu shot and and still get the flu to those who got the shot and did not get the flu.

Jammie Thomas Moves To Strike RIAA $1.92M Verdict

fritz1968 Re:Some people should realize that... (392 comments)

...At a high level, though, judges get to change laws...

NO!!! Judges DO NOT CHANGE LAWS. That is the job of congress. At best Judges, in theory, can only rule that a law is constitutional or not, but only if the law, itself, is challenged. Even if a Judge were to rule a law unconstitutional, that is not changing the law. It is striking down the law.

They also preside over a court of law and insure that the legal rights of all involved are legal and fair. If anything, judges are to make their rulings (in a none jury trial) based off existing law.

Who do you blame for the US Financial Situation

fritz1968 Congress? (1104 comments)

It is neither just the Republicans or just the Democrats. It's Congress as a whole to blame. They are too busy trying to get reelected then to look after the citizens of the USA. Greedy CxO's and unethical people don't help much either.
