Notice I said he did it again. Meaning I was referring to more than one post. Want examples? Them selfs instead of themselves. How about posionist instead of poisonous? If you took the time to actually see what I was referring to, examples wouldn't be needed. That is if you can spell as good as you flap your trap.
Hair splitting and pedantic. Yep, you made my point for me. Thank you.

After reviewing the posts it would seem he is defending your position by pointing out the lower intelligence levels of some of the know it all's in the forum.
Just how is he "defending" my position? It is my contention that the issues at hand are much broader than "hunting rights", and if something is a "right" how can it be legislated, altered, or taken by a government that derives its just powers from the consent of the governed?

This is supposed to be a Constitutional Republic where the rights of the individual are protected from the tyranny of the majority {tyranny of the majority is true democracy, so you can imagine why we are not one}.

Show me how vulgarity, whining about misspelled words {a pet peeve of mine for sure}, and insulting others is supporting my position. Or, failing that, if you might point out where my positions have been supported then I'd be more than happy to apologize, and would encourage him toward tolerance in some areas as there are others that need more intolerance.

Those who can't confront the truth tend to throw stones from their places of hiding. If they had a spine, or a brain, they would be out in the open discussing. Don't expect too much from them though, they are only children after all.

No government has the right under any exception to force a parent to vaccinate their child. Read what is in these so called vaccines and you might think twice. How can mercury be could for a new immune system or any immune system at that? You ask why there would be harmful chemicals in vaccines? Read up and you will see corruption in our system bigger and scarier than you could imagine. Hint, they want us to remain sick from cradle to grave...it's all about big pharma and the billions per year they make. One more thing, if you think the big wigs take vaccines, think again. Just like they don't eat the same food we herds are forced to eat.
You are right. No government has the "Right", but they do have the force {which is not always violence}. They use the media to convince people that there's a "new strain of flu" that is causing "fatalities" and even some celebrities are "hospitalized", so they can terrorize people into compliance. Don't you feel so sorry for Burt Reynolds right now?

No doubt you've noticed the "judge" icons at the top of certain posts, including my own. There are those who see that and assume the judgments to be legitimate and skip those posts. The ones harmed are not those who are informed, but those who might be if they were to read. This is the force of mental manipulation. Those who are forthright and upstanding in their positions are generally insulted by such tactics, and continue to try and educate the people rather than manipulate the masses.

All this does tend to work together so that the tyranny of the mob prevails {peer pressure} regardless of age. Those who stand for Freedom will always have ankle grabbing trash around them trying to pull them down, and make them part of the mob, but those who remain are stronger for the testing. Funny how they do weed out the weak, so only the strongest remain.

After the immunizations that my son had which made him display autism symptoms to become prevalent. I have no faith in all the vaccinations. With the influx of people who have crossed the border they have also brought some of those diseases back to our country and I can indeed see the need for vaccinations.

There are no side effects. Take all shots as recommended by your government sponsored health care provider. They will tell what's best for you because you don't know.

Take your federally funded benefits, watch sports and reality tv, and let your government take care of the rest. You can't take care of yourself, the government is the only one who can take care of you. Don't you understand? Done my homework knows, just ask him. He knows everything better than everyone. Kneel to him, as his posts are always 100% accurate and final. Do not question him or your government as you will surely be corrected.

Should the state should mandate immunizations for your children? Do you feel they are safe for all children. Do they cause other health issues like autism? Should the state also pay for them as well if they are requiring them?
I think parents do what they feel is right for their children and we should respect other cultures and religious decisions.

Worked with polio
Most of the NOW generation haven't seen the effects of polio, growing up right after WW2 it was a HORRIBLE disease. People want that for they're children don't know of what they speak. I went to school with some of the kids stricken by it, had limbs like sticks and had metal braces barley barley walk, many died if it struck the muscles that controlled breathing. Ever see someone live in an iron lung? Google it, now that was fun for kids. Idiots don't want immunization.

I'm with you, yes polio....

Just who doesn't "like to protect" our children? Are you saying that the government should have final authority over our children, and us?

It sounds to me like you prefer tyranny over freedom, government ruling the people rather than serving them.

I have seen, first hand, what polio can do. I've also seen, first hand, what vaccinations and dirty needles can do. Add to that I have over half a century of seeing just what government can do, and has done. If you even come close to my age, you have too if you've cared to open your eyes and see it.

Hmmm. Are you attempting to coerce anyone's opinion through some form of intimidation, or fear tactic? Do you realize that under the provisions of the "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Act of 2007" this sort of "radicalization" is illegal? Perhaps you think it is only illegal if you get caught, so guess you've been caught.

The question, in case you've missed it, is, "Should state mandate immunizations?" The underlying question is who has final authority over our children.

Let me state this as plainly as I can for you. If you want your child(ren) vaccinated, it is your choice. If you don't want your child(ren) vaccinated, it is your choice. When government tells us that we have to have them vaccinated, I say that the government is no longer serving We the People, but ruling over us. This is unConstitutional, it is unAmerican, and it is tyranny.

I served in the military defending the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and still hold to that vow now. My country is a FREE country, not one of tyranny, whether by an individual {monarchy}, group {oligarchy}, or majority {democracy}.
