IRQ12: Questioning the validity and worth of a vaccination backed by a pure profit motive is not a bad thing. Who heard of HPV before the vaccination came out?

T.rex: Egoy3k: More like she opened her wallet and pandered.  Not really the same thing, just as shiatty to be sure, but not the same.

Are you kidding.... There's no money to be had to be anti-Big Pharma.... You got that backwards.


She's cutting right into their MASSIVE vaccine profits.  Follow the money and you will see.  Just study it out.

Inchoate: Anybody can make a report to VAERS about anything


Did you know a vaccine once turned a man into the incredible hulk? VAERS knew.

/vaccines can also shoot people, cause thromboembolic strokes, and crash cars, too.

ladodger34: Cletus C.: ladodger34: My friend's sister is an RN and an anti-vaxxer (she married an idiot and she listens to him). She was ranting and raving on FB the other day that about how hospitals treat nurses that don't get the flu vaccine and how she was lucky that her hospital only made her wear a mask.

I told her brother (my closest and bestest friend) that I really appreciated her FB rant. If my 2 youngest ever happen to visit a hospital and they are treated with a nurse in a mask, I will respectfully ask for another. I have to assume that a nurse in a mask is an anti-vaxxer and I can't have him/her around my kids with asthma.

//rant hit home because we spent the night in the ER with baby girl (9 mo. old) a week or two before it was posted.
///friend's sister is farking hot. She could have her choice of men, but she married her idiot husband.

Is there more information you could provide on your friend's sister's hotness? What makes her hot? Pouty lips, large breasts, long legs, hips that swivel their way into a room? You gave a lot of detail otherwise, but this area is somewhat lacking.

Tall and well proportioned (5'8 ish), raven hair, fake boobs, beautiful face, curvy hips, olive skin. No sharp knees. A real stunner.


Oh my. Ask her to slip into her nurse's outfit and meet me at my cabana, where I have some anti-vaccine literature I'd like to go over with her. I also have some interesting theories on fluoride that should set the mood just right.

skozlaw: Carn: So, if you refuse to vaccinate yourself or your kid against pertussis, congratulations, you're indirectly responsible for the death of infants.

It would be great if you could bring involuntary manslaughter charges against people who refuse to get vaccinated without a valid medical reason and then make others deathly ill.

Sadly, it would just be way too hard to prove any individual case.

We really ought to make people who refuse vaccinations without cause sign waivers that acknowledge liability and obligate them to positively identify themselves to the community as the potential biological threat they are and also remain a minimum distance from schools, playgrounds, nursing homes, medical offices, hospitals and other areas where immune-compromised individuals could be.


I'm in agreement with this.  I had made the exact statement above (if you don't vaccinate you are indirectly responsible for the death of babies) to my sister (whose is kind of an anti-vaxxer and whose son is autistic) and she said "that's just ridiculous".  I said no, it's statistics.

We need a vaccine against anti-vaxxers.

Why do I feel like the only sane person, aside from the occasional FARKER?

When the HPV shot came out we waited a few years just to make sure it was reliable and safe.  Just had our two boys vaccinated on Monday (yeah, I know--there are two more doses) to help them increase their chances of a healthy life.

/Good thing the vaccine doesn't turn boys into turbo-powered monster sluts the way it does for the girls.

meintx2001: Stop with the herd immunity crap.  If you don't take the vaccine for what ever reason, don't force others to take it to protect you.  It should be their decision.

My only concern at this point is that this country will have utterly collapsed and will be eating itself alive before I can secure citizenship in a country whose citizens are not equal parts frothing-at-the-mouth insane and pants-on-head stupid.

Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: I'm fine with not vaccinating your kids, provided there are some caveats.

If they choose not to vaccinate theirr kid against something, the doctor will immediately infect the parents with it. In Katie Couric's case, a shot of HPV right in the cervix. But this would hold true for just about any preventable disease. Don't want to vaccinate your kid against polio? Well, now that I've injected you with polio, have you changed your mind?


Couric got her kids vaccinated. She's just telling other parents that it may be ok to not vaccinate. So, she's totally in the clear, in that her kids may survive, while thousands of her viewers are exposing their children to unnecessary risk.
