At least having the measles isn't as bad as being Munsoned.

It's sad that most people's total knowledge of the Amish people comes from watching Kingpin. I saw Witness too.

The woman is Esther Schmucker from AMISH MAFIA, who in real life has a rap sheet for a variety of petty
crimes and who hangs out with a local rapper who was recently up on charges of assaulting her and also
has a criminal history.

While many Amish are not against vaccines in principle, many, including Kauffman's children, have never had shots. "I guess there was no scare to us before," Kaufman says. "I guess we were too relaxed."

So, how is this different from most of the non-Amish population? The ones who never get around to vaccinating their kids until the school demands it?

Most people who go to a doctor regularly get vaccinations because their doctor told them too. Many other get them because they want to sign up their kids for pre-k.
Even still waiting until they need to go to public school isn't so bad especially if they aren't going to preschool (a mingling pot of scum and villainy if there ever was one, good luck not getting sick every other week when your kids first start)
 
2014-06-24 03:54:44 PM  
Can we please just take everyone that is anti-vaccination and put them on a nice little island and die?  Coming from someone who easily drinks a fifth of whiskey a day.  At least I won't kill anyone else from my shiatty choices.

And in some ways the medical community is also to blame. Over diagnosing Autism, causing the Jenny McCarthys of the world to try and blame it on something.

This is pretty much how humans have always operated

We take no notice of 'abstract' instructions from scienticians or any authority figures we don't know

Personal experience, or FOAF testimony, is all that moves us to action

I was driving through an Amish area of PA last week and passed 2 teen-aged Amish girls on a buggy at a 4 way stop. They both smiled and waved at me. It made me smile for the rest of the ride home.

Good.

The antivaxxers are pushing us to the point of the government forcing everyone to vaccinate, with no exceptions allowed except medical ones.

Satanic_Hamster: You know, fark it.  There should be no religious exemption for getting vaccinations.

There's some legal opinions that say the religious exemption is unconstitutional, in part because it advances some faiths before others, as well as other issues with the exemptions.  Mississippi's court tossed the religious exemption on the grounds it violated the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment.

"The court ruled that the exemption violated the equal protection rights of those children who did not qualify for exemption,  and said that a religious exemption provision "would require the great body of school children to be vaccinated and at the same time expose them to the hazard of associating in school with children exempted under the religious exemption who had not been immunized as required by the statute. 47"

I live in NY Amish Country. Go for a Sunday drive about the time that church lets out, and your arm will hurt from all the waving. They ALL wave.

Nice folks, the lot of them.

But if everyone has to vaccinate won't that make them more susceptible to the chem trails chemicals?

See that's the thing.  Vaccine have adjuncts that are there to protect you from the Illuminati chemtrails.  They are poorly understood, but those aluminum adjuncts act as a kind of internal tin foil hat.

The antivaccine movement is the product of those that want to expand their reach through the use of poorly targeted mind altering chemicals while spreading as much misery and suffering as possible.

I actually live near this. I live in Wayne County, OH...which is just one county above Holmes. And as a home health aide, and because the office for my company is in Millersburg, OH (Holmes County)...I have to travel into the area a lot. It is scary with it being so close to home. I am vaccinated, and I made sure my son was, too.
