Well, since the groups most heavily affected are the children, pregnant females, the sick and elderly we shouldn't be too unhappy...right? They only represent the future and all we've learned from experience.
"The sins of the fathers are revisited on the children."
Thus, the anti-intellectual, anti-science and reactionary policies of the Bush years return to haunt us...
This is really sad - not that 'the children, pregnant females, the sick and elderly' are the most effected (see below), but that you are so dishonest.
First, anyone who was not here in 1976, the last time a variant of this virus caused an outbreak, has no native immunity - they've never seen this virus before. Those of us who were around in 1976 were exposed to some degree, whether we were ill at the time or not, and have some degree of immunity.
Second, those in that group include the elderly, contrary to your allegation, which explains why H1N1 has been pretty much a non-event for the elderly, and one of the reasons anyone over the age of 49 is not eligible to receive the vaccine.
That you would blame Bush and his policies is jut assinine. And it shows you failed to comprehend the article's point.
