Owning the libs by burning their own products they paid money for.

Owning the libs by dying of covid.

Owning the libs by getting thrown off airplanes for not wearing a mask.

Owning the libs by letting their own children become paralyzed or handicapped.

When you look at their past choices, this one isn't any more strange.  I look forward to some new animal medication or other toxic brew being taken as a "cure" for polio.

As a shareholder in Big Iron Lung - I say let these parents make their own decisions for their children. Clearly they know best.

And really who are you to try and force your beliefs on others.

I remember getting vaccinated against polio back in the 50's. I also remember just how glad my mother was to see me vaccinated. She was a nurse, and got to see polio up close and personal.

I see patients with complications from remote polio. Just saw one yesterday. It's horrible what it did to people, and there was very little controversy back in those days about the vaccine compared to what's going on now.
Can't imagine that I might start seeing new polio patients. Hurray for the 21st century filled with 'special' people!

The only discernible goal of right wingers I can identify, is to turn America into a third-world shiathole. That's where literally all of their positions lead so it has to be that.

Robert F. Kennedy, had falsely claimed previously that a vaccination dip in 2020 led to a dramatic reduction in deaths from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

This mentality is ridiculous.  It's inductive reasoning.  You've started with the premise that vaccines are bad and then worked backwards searching for any "evidence" of that.  Doe vaccines cause autism or SIDS?

I posit that a vaccination dip in 2020 led to a dramatic reduction in me losing my car keys.  Prove me wrong.

when your sole motivation is spite it is not surprising how far some will suffer just to share the pain with those they have been taught to hate.
 
2022-08-17 1:44:27 PM  
I'm waiting for them to start claiming the Polio vaccine is a leftist plot to sterilize suburban white people and then going out and bombing hospitals and doctors offices.

iToad: I remember getting vaccinated against polio back in the 50's. I also remember just how glad my mother was to see me vaccinated. She was a nurse, and got to see polio up close and personal.


Yeah, my mom's in her 70's and she's farking PISSED that Polio is making a comeback.  She called me up two days ago telling me she read that polio had been detected in N.Y.'s waste water. She had friends as a child who had Polio. So she made me pull up the records on my daughter and make sure she had been given the polio vaccination. Even though she knows that my child is as vaccinated as the pediatrician will let her, she's even started her Gardasil series started at age 12 and her Covid vaccination a year before authorizations were given for her age. 

This is one the 70+ crowd is not happy about at all. It's completely stupid that it has resurfaced.

They're trying to increase the death rate amongst the lower classes to alleviate the issues that will be caused by the automation of lower class jobs in the next few decades.

People in the third world actually get and want to get vaccines. They just want a pure chaos fascist state to hurt poor and brown people.

Fair's fair. I plan to cheer when I hear of an anti-vax right winger contracting polio.
 
2022-08-17 1:54:06 PM  
"Oh, it's only one case, what's the big deal?

Meanwhile, there are nearly 2000 cases of monkeypox in California as of this morning, and they're having to dilute the available vaccine down here to try to get healthcare workers at least partially immune.

I'm through with boards, I'm going to start beating these idiots with something sharper and heavier. I think ice picks.

When Mrs. Nuran was growing up in a backwards third world shiathole mothers would carry their children for days to wherever there were vaccines. Everyone had a neighbor or family member who had died or gone blind or been crippled by encephalitis from measles.

Nature always finds a balance and humans have no predator to keep our population in check. That's why Nature baked in shortsighted assholes. In hopes one day their stubborn idiocy would discover the internet and bring our numbers back down to acceptable levels. It's science, sheeples.

Just like Moon-landing myths, the Russians helped propagate anti-vaccination misinformation until the checks cleared and the GOP bought the rights to parrot anti-vac rhetoric.

I guess I'm gonna get roasted for disparaging developing countries. Probably deserve it, but I also think everybody can tell what I was actually going for.

Wait, so you're part owner of a company who still makes Iron Lungs?  Where the hell have you been?  There are still customers out there who need replacement parts, or even a new unit.

Because you're talking about more than just people unwilling to take the jab.
