The Logical Result Of Anti-Vaccine Hysteria ?

In California, five children have died of Whopping Cough since the beginning of the year.

One has to wonder what role the discredited vaccine-autism hysteria has to do anything with this.

    I don’t wonder at all. I’m sure of it.

    But those morons are only the start. Now we’re going to have entire states where a huge percentage of the population won’t get their kids vaccinated for fear the entire family will be deported when they can’t show papers at the hospital. And while I’m sure this will come as a surprise to Jan Brewer and her acolytes around here, even if a disease starts with an illegal alien, it can jump quite easily into the documented population.

    NPR reported that the vaccine series cost $500, and that insurance companies would not reimburse doctors for holding a supply oh hand.

  3. moron says:

    try taking out the mercury , barium & other horseshit & maybe people would be more trusting ….
    if you want to write a worthwhile article , investigate the contents of the vaccine & write that so readers can decide for themselves ..
    you write like an imbecile …

  4. moron says:

    ps- moron how ’bout also reporting the numbers of children who died from the vaccine ….
