Well if the poor people couldn't afford it, what harm was it doing for the rich people to buy it instead? It seems to me that those rich people were keeping the stores in business whereas if they had to rely on the poor people, those poor people would likely have to drive a lot further and spend a lot more money to get the same thing. But since they couldn't afford it, it wouldn't matter anyway because they weren't going to buy it in the first place.

And if H1N1 isn't real then they don't need to use a fake disease to control people because they've already perfected mind control to the point where tens of thousands of people believe they have something so wholeheartedly that some of them are dying from it. If you don't know of anyone who's had swine flu, you must not get out much. But wait, that's the insult people are supposed to use against me for not agreeing with them.

They were buying it out from the people who couldn't afford to fix their houses.

I see what he's saying. If they don't have insurance that'll cover this and they don't have the money to fix their houses anyways they are not stealing or doing anything but buying up the stock before the poor can get loans.

A lot of the problem with Florida though is there is a large poor population in some area's and unless the lumber yards are giving it away they are stuck using scrap lumber or not getting their homes repaired and being stuck. I really can't feel to sorry though. It's not as though they didn't know they lived in a hurricane area. It's like owning a house up here in New Hampshire and not having a strong roof since we are known to have heavy snow storms and it would be nuts to have a home with a roof that wasn't strong. You build a normal Florida style home "not hurricane engineered" here in NH you will either be shoveling constantly during most big storms or have your roof cave in from the weight of the snow. Hell even a small storm with wet snow could very well destroy a roof not made for our area up here.

As for hurricanes. I rarely see a house hurt more than cosmetically by the strongest northeasters and I've seen quite a few with well over 60 MPH gusts half burying houses, but a strong house is manditory to survive up here in the winter.

Actually, I get out but I myself don't know anyone who has it. I'm sure it's out there, and that it's more virulent than the regular flu, so I'm not really arguing it's existence.

They say there is one strain out that is almost like a combination of a mild cold and a mild flu and I think I'm just getting over it after about 3 weeks. Only missed one day at work because of fever and I slept for like 16 hrs that day. It wasn't so bad but I don't use medicine hardly ever so my immune system knows it's on it's own and deals with most stuff so I'm normally healthy without getting colds or anything else everyone seems to get.

Hmm. You remind me of someone else. But, I digress.
The point is I don't personally know anyone who has or has had it. Do I actually believe it's real? Yup.
Just nature's way of thinning the herd. That is, unless you have the money for the vaccine.

And let's not get into the mind control thing. The politicians, on both sides use the press to practice that to a minimal extent...it's figuring out the truth that's fun.
