    Just think of the money we would save if half of them died.

    You are SOOO RIGHT!

    Kids under 5 have been at higher risk of swine flu complications. Those with asthma are, of course, at particularly high risk. So are kids with medical conditions -- such as diabetes -- that put adults at higher risk from flu.

    One group of children and teens faces an unusual risk: those under age 19 who must take long-term aspirin therapy. Aspirin is a dangerous drug for people who have the flu, as it raises a person's risk of a dangerous complication called Reye's syndrome.

    Adults at 'Higher Risk' From Swine Flu
    As noted above, pregnancy, lung diseases, and older age put adults at higher risk of swine flu complications.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Texas does have the death penalty, after all.

    Yes, but the vaccine is scarce. Law abiding citizens, older people, young children have to wait while criminals get the vaccine. I find that patently offensive.
    Law abiding citizens are not on the list you just posted. Children are so you got that right and in part the "older people". You left out anyone with the complications that mostly cause death, such as lung diseases. That can be anyone, old or young, law abiding citizen or not.

    While I find it offensive too that criminals should get it before me (since I am not in the risk groups), I also understand fully that they should. Having prisons with massive sickness is not exactly a good thing. They would become breeding grounds that could easily spread out, be hard to stop and would cause panic and riots in said prisons.

    Plus I highly doubt that anyone would give an inmate a flu shot over a child or a pregnant woman or anyone with high risk.

    So you think that someone doing a twelve-month stint in prison for stealing a car is worthy of the death penalty. Got it.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Children are ALSO a high-risk, priority group. The article does not say anything about inmates receiving vaccines ahead of OTHER priority groups. They're just receiving the vaccine ahead of low-risk, healthy adults who AREN'T in a confined space with rampant disease.

    No, but if the loser catches swine flu and dies, I'm sure as hell not going to shed any tears for him.

    Look at it this way, if half the prison population died from swine flu, the Liberals whine about how many people are in prison.

    If it weren't for uninsured folks already getting priority over everyone else, this wouldn't look like just more political correctness run amuck.

This is often enough to cause a person to lose their home. If I were to lose my home, I would have to leave the area because rents have increased in the years since I started paying for my house to be higher than the payments are.

    Yes, I would have to say it is deserving of the death penalty in those circumstances. Or at least allow me 10 unsupervised minutes in a closed room with no cameras with him.
    rent a car perhaps? Just sayin'
