Right Coads? Isn't that right?

He doesn't speak much, we haven't taught him how. I don't want the languagists stifling his creativity with their communo-normative fascism. His language is Coadyspeak. Oop, he just shiat on your floor. We taught him not to be ashamed of his leavings.

Yes, but the doctors are all in bed with Big Vaccine!  Who are you going to trust?  Some guy who has never had a baby?  No!

When you form a babby in your own womb, you know better than some guy with "credentials" and "training" and "certifications".    You're a MOM - the hardest job in the world!

So the way the Polio vaccine works is YOU get inoculated and if you interact with a person suffering from Polio, you are safe, they cannot make you sick.

Works the same for SmallPox, Typhoid,

I thought at the beginning that you were joking but you are in fact this much of an idiot.

Vaccines require 90 or so percent of the population to get vaccinated to work.

You may be confused about herd immunity where the vaccinated pass on a form of immunity to the non-vaccinated thru contact.


In your case the vaccine may well have caused retardation.

My mom was a nurse, and my grandmother was a nurse.
My grandmother worked full time as a nurse in a hospital during the depression while a widow and raising three kids. One of them had polio, and she gave him PT every night and he learned how to walk again and have a productive life.

We got vaccinated.
And if we said Boo, we got something to cry about.

Farty McPooPants: Wow, shoe is on the other foot now, isn't it?

Not long ago, the liberals were all up in arms about the issue of compulsory vaccinations.
Having the scar on your shoulder was a sign that you were a mindless tool of the establishment and were no better than cattle.
Anything the government did was seen with suspicion, even if it was for the good of the society as a whole and it drove a generation to demand government accountability and to value the inclusiveness of all people.
It's how we got mandatory diversity, equal opportunity employment, welfare, a convoluted, politically motivated census, and everything the government prints is now in more languages than most people can even identify.  The list goes on and on.
The point is, we were striving for a more homogeneous society but that became a target for those who felt they were hopelessly disenfranchised from that society.  Great strides were made to remedy that.  It's not perfect yet and it could never be.
Now, unfortunately, society has gone 180 degrees and sees government as the way to force their views on those they see as lesser than themselves.  The exact same thing that they were supposedly victims of in the past.

Scary thing is, there doesn't seem to be any voice of reason, understanding, or compassion, coming from the left at all.

You either stand with them or you're against them and they've a great big bag of names to brand you with if they even think you are not 100% on their side.
Where before we saw public outcry for education,equality and justice as a way to uplift everyone and foster understanding, now we hear, "Abolish their religion, shut down their businesses, tax them into poverty, publicly humiliate them, take their children, and force them into rehabilitation!"

The future is yours, do with it what you will.  From my point of view, you are getting off to a really crappy start.


Are you a real person?

Dude; Viruses and bacteria change and adapt and, dare I say it?, EVOLVE over time.
In order to keep people from getting polio, you have to have a greater than half percentage(don't know exact #') to prevent the disease transferring around enough to mutate so that it could kill anybody, including those previously vaccinated.
 It's still Polio- Just a different breed of Polio.

Like the flu- you need a new vaccine every year, because it is so adaptable.

They do not create a new Polio vaccine every year.

To The Escape Zeppelin!: D135: This is a great follow-up to that article last week about how a lot of people who don't vaccinate their kids aren't necessarily anti-vaxers, just lazy farks who don't want to drive across town during work hours to get their own farking crotch fruit vaccinated.

Normally I'd be shocked by someone that callous about their children but I took a Tripadviser survey yesterday that repeatedly asked whether I would cut back on my child's education or after-school activities to fund my vacation.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Egoy3k: drb9: But if everyone who wants to be vaccinated gets vaccinated, what do they care if the unvaccinated pass the disease amongst themselves?

Vaccines don't work unless enough people in the population get them, also many people have suppressed immune systems and cannot get vaccines, they are also the most at risk of fatal diseases.

By which you mean "herd immunity" effects don't work unless enough people in the population get vaccinated. The vaccines will still work for you, but, unless most of the rest of the population doesn't also get vaccinated, it won't help people that would like to get vaccinated but can't.


No I mean what I said. Vaccines are not always 100% effective even in normal healthy people.  You might still become ill if you are vaccinated.

You don't need an ultrasound to know if you are pregnant. But you do need to know that refusing to vaccinate is not only dangerous to your children, but others as well. If everyone knew that, there would be no need for the video.

If a child gets pregnant, it is definitely healthy for her to get an abortion.

The one, teensy, tiny little problem I have with this is based on my own experience, a third of the world away.

When I started at UMD, I had to provide them proof of my vaccination records. I thought I had, but apparently, there was some piece missing, so they didn't have proof I was up-to-date (IIRC) on my MMR. (Funny enough, working at a hospital the year prior, I'd had to have my titer upped, since the MMR vaccine level was too low.)

Anyway, rather than get stuck AGAIN for the same damn thing (or, more likely, waiting for my doctor's office to RE-re-send the paperwork), I signed the "I have objections" paper and went on my merry.

// if I'd had to watch a video on top of that, it'd be worse than 47 Benghazis happening at the IRS building where they target conservatives
