doglover: I don't know. Could it have something to do with the years upon years of hyperbolic lies piled onto society by social do gooders who were full of shiat like MADD and the anti-smoking lobby? Could that have maybe, I dunno, somehow influenced your credibility in some way?
AntiNerd: 1. Vaccines have been essential tools to control and in some cases eradicate some diseases. Therefore, all vaccines are implicitly good for you.2. Drug companies can be counted on to never fudge testing numbers in the interests of profit. They will always think of their long term interests and realize that the short term profit isn't worth it if it damages their reputation.3. Anyone who ever questions the efficacy or safety of any vaccine is an anti-vaxxer even more stupid than Jenny McCarthy if that was possible.4. That goes for anyone who questions whether 686 injections by the age of six is a good idea. This is what our bodies are evolved for and profit motive has nothing to do with it.5. The government health authorities are always right and always get it right. Except of course if contradicts my personal ideology or pre-conception.6. If a chemical compound can preserve a vaccine, it must be great for you.Words to live by I tell you.Disclaimer: I keep up with my vaccinations with the best risk assessment I can manage. I would do the same for my kids if I had any that age.
Zeppelininthesky: Because they have the mentality that everything is some kind of conspiracy, nothing will convince them. You can offer whatever you like and they will ignore it for their version of the truth. I think we should force the kids to be vaccinated, and criminally charge parents that fail to do so. It is no longer a "mother's choice" anymore. Not vaccinating your child does actual harm to the population.
meat0918: Summoner101: Apparently what we really need is a diptheria outbreak to show people how useful vaccines are.That's all that does it.That, and high profile media reports of children dying of otherwise preventable diseases.
doglover: Mikey1969: And yeah, they actually keep passing different kinds of 'put down the fork' legislation, whether it's banning trans fats, or overly large sodas, it keeps happening.And I keep opposing it.There's things that should be banned, like DDT. But then there's thing like olestra, which is kind of its own punishment.And if cigarette smoke bothers you THAT MUCH, maybe don't go to bars, cities, camping, church, or smithies, or kitchens, or anywhere fun really.
