Since the swine flu epidemic has failed to materialize those who want the federal government to take on new powers need to create a crisis. I know, they can gin it up with press releases and use the media to make it look like there's a crisis.

Oh and a judge has now said forced vaccinations are a plenty good reason to suspend the Constitution!
