7FARK7: Jenny McCarthy is a farking dangerous lunatic!
heinrich66: I just love the cognitive dissonance in discussion threads like this one. Catch people at the right moment and they'll readily admit: a) that medical research contradicts itself all the time (see FARK headlines past six months), and b) Big Pharma and Big Media try to produce a new hysteria every year about swine/bird/Rhesus Bejesus Monkey Flu *just for big profits*. (Gardasil for boys anyone?)Meanwhile, on the other side of the cognitive divide, Jenny McCarthy is a science-hating monster Medievalist who is now DIRECTLY responsible every time someone living in the Yukon doesn't get a MMR shot.(Editor's Note: Half of these McCarthy-haters and vitriolists have previously shot other bodily fluids all over her virtual bazookas.)
Real Women Drink Akvavit: Anthracite: I hate Jenny McCarthy... she should just sit on the sidelines and be a pretty face. That woman has HELPED cause the Whooping cough epidemic. Next I hear she is working on having Polio make a comeback./disgusting woman.Oh btw why am I only showing 10 fark links on my front page now and am not showing yesterdays stuff... did I hit something on a page or something?Yeah, welcome to California. Here are directions to the nearest Walgreens. Now go get your whooping cough vaccine, please.Part of the problem though is that often adults don't keep up with their shots. I've heard tell that you don't get lifetime immunity from your childhood vaccinations (or maybe not all of them, only some of them? I don't remember for sure), and for some things we're not sure how long the immunity lasts. Can you imagine if smallpox re-emerged? The death toll would be atrocious. I think my generation was one of the last to get that vaccine. I got it, but my sis, who is only a year and a half younger than I, did not. Still, we're not sure how long that immunity lasts and while smallpox allegedly no longer exists in the wild (so to speak) it does exist in a couple of labs, both in the US and in Russia (that I know of, there may be others). That's kind of scary.
J. Frank Parnell: doubled99: She is smarter than most of youPrepare to be trampled by the herd.Way i look at it now, people who take any injection offered by drug manufacturers under flimsy justification without applying critical thinking is a form of Darwinism that can exist in our society now that we've removed all the natural ones, so is ultimately a good thing.I now return you to your regularly scheduled 2 minutes hate. And encourage the more abusive and angry of you to double your injections. Major symptom of brain damage is arbitrary aggression and rage, but i'm sure that's just a coincidence.

heinrich66: Actually, I'm attributing the absence of a single expressed viewpoint (e.g. Hey, I can understand why an uneducated woman like J. McCarthy turn against vaccines given the excesses of Big Pharma and so much contradictory medical opinion) AS proof of a consensus view. In other words, the recurring McCarthy-is-a-COONT jibe.
heinrich66: basic ethics (i.e. the ethics of piling onto J. McCarthy in an internet echo chamber while simultaneously mocking medical research *for all those to whom this applies*)
Occam's Disposable Razor: Mock26: "We recognized that she had some incredible talent to bring to this event."And what exactly is that talent? Taking her clothes off?[music-juice.com image 600x900]Pictured: talent?
