"I've run into the same thing, Heath. And one report does not necessarily agree with another. I know all the hospitals and doctors are trusting the CDC to be reasonably accurate (a good friend of mine is doctor, but even he is frustrated with…"
"It seems very tricky to actually find a distinct number of deaths from this. I looked all over on the World Health Organization website and could only get estimates, and those estimates were only broken down very simply. Such as, instead of…"
"Here is the latest from the CDC ... through Oct 9th from what I can tell.
Like you, I have dug in pretty deep on this, and there are certainly two sides to the issue... but one thing I am convinced of, is that the H1N1 is nothing to fool around with…"
"Thanks for the info, Heath. I didn't fact-check any of the figures ... they were simply reported on the news site and picked up by AP. I know some of the discrepancy lies in the fact the CDC has quit tracking a lot of the cases or has failed to…"
"Dave, I don't know what to think about the article after finding the introductory information to be exaggerated. The author, Offit, states that 1,000 people have died of the disease in the United States. That's nearly doubling the figure…"
"Paddy, your comment I hopefully is directed toward Obama and his administration or someone else... rather than to me personally.

"Thanks for the post, Heath. Like you say, we'll put the "facts" out there, ask the tough questions, and let people decide for themselves.

"Michelle, you ask a very timely and needed question. Unfortunately, there is no real definitive answer on the subject. You will find a huge variety of opinions as you are already aware .. :) Somewhere between "take your chances on the flu…"
Hi there! I have two small children at home ages 7 and 4. I have heard all the hype about the vaccine and I'm not to sure what to think. Is it the government pushing it because they are truely concerned or is there a hidden agenda with this too. There are just too many sides of the story! Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!

Hello Michelle, I am Lisa Robinson, I run the group United Conservative Homeschoolers. I received a note from a friend on here that you had questions on Homeschooling. Unfortunately it went to my home emial and not the one here, or I would have responded by now. Please if you are still interested and would like to talk about your options send me a message. I will do what ever I can to help you out. I even have some free curriculum and links to others on the site. Start up costs can be low. I also have a link to the laws for the state of California and a list of Umbrella schools in the area.

Welcome to TCU, Michelle. You haven’t listed any of your interests so it’s hard to suggest a group for you. I see that you’re married so if one of your interests might be preservation of the family, a group called “Defend Marriage” was recently started by Pearl Diver from San Diego who is very committed to, and active in the defense of marriage and family. As you know, your recently passed Proposition 8 is getting hammered by perverse opponents of traditional marriage and so you may want to join Pearl to lend encouragement and support.
Then, there’s the California Conservatives group, the Conservative Christian group, The Defend Life group, the Honorable US Troops group, plus a multitude of other groups that run the political and personality spectrum. I'm sure you'd enjoy the interaction and the group(s) would profit from any postings or comments you might want to contribute. Take your pick(s) and have fun!
