It seems to me, Nuggin, that you're pretty fixated on Wakefield. And Hey is correct saying you "sound" like a mouthpiece for Big Pharma. BTW {oh the fixation this is going to bring, but what the hey} do you know what the Koine Greek word for Sorcery is?

Going back to my question about your use of "we", it is obvious that you should have paid more attention in English class when antecedents were taught.

As for this government not being that government, you are so wrong. However, since I doubt you make visits to thomas.gov on a regular basis, how would you even know? If you've been hearing the word "Radicalization", or any of its derivatives, this goes back to a bill that was killed in committee in 2007, just prior to the first of the "bank failures". Actually, it is the same government, and it has been learning by its mistakes.

Back to forced vaccinations, when Bill Gates addressed TED {video on YouTube}, he makes a statement that population could be reduced by 15%{if I recall properly} due to improved vaccination policies in the African Union. Pray tell, what did he mean by that?

As far as the HERD immunity BS the Google Guy has the skinny on that too.

As far as the so called breeding that's gone on for ever and ever the GMOs do not fall into that category.
John Boy and Jim Bob did not whip up those GMOs with a GENE GUN in the barn with Grampa.
A GMO is a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal.
The forign genes may come from bacteria,viruses,insects,anima ls,or even humans.
Because living organisms have natural barriers to protect themselves against the introduction of DNA from differet species,genetic engineers must force DNA from one organism into another.
These methods include
1.Using virus or bacteria to infect animal or plant cells with the new DNA.
2.DNA into tiny metal pellets and firing it with a gene gun into the cell. Yes John Boy was doing this I remenber now.
3.Injecting the new DNA into fertilized eggs with a very fine needle.
4.Using electric shocks to create holes in the membrane covering sperm,and then forcing the new DNA into the sperm through these holes.
I wonder about that natural barrier that wants to keep this type of thing from happening?
Oh never mind that.Monsanto knows best.

What post of mine were you responding to??? I very seldom even post on this Thread and I went back 3 pages before I found where I had posted and it was just a little joke to lighten the mood.

So, what are you talking about? Some of you People are badly confused and you're confusing everybody else, too!

If you're going to respond to a post at least 3 or more pages back, made 2 or 3 days ago, you really need to use the "REPLY" option, so somebody will know who and what you are commenting to and about! Geez!

I STILL don't know what Post of mine, so you say, that you're responding to nor what I said in it!...SMH...

Not to trip the "Hitler" card, but this is like saying to a WWII historian that he talks about Hitler all the time.
Wakefield is the ORIGIN of the vaccine/autism lie. Of course I'm going to talk about Wakefield. If he hadn't made it up, you wouldn't be here arguing it now.
As for this government not being that government, you are so wrong.
Point out the specific person at the CDC who is both making recommendations on vaccine schedules AND was responsible for the start of the Vietnam war. Can you?
Not the same people.
Back to forced vaccinations, when Bill Gates addressed TED {video on YouTube}, he makes a statement that population could be reduced by 15%{if I recall properly} due to improved vaccination policies in the African Union. Pray tell, what did he mean by that?
Do you honestly not know? Or are you being deliberately stupid?
I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are honestly dumb.
The population growth rate for so called "1st world" countries is SIGNIFICANTLY lower than that of 3rd world countries. That's because our better access to health care means that parents can be more secure in their belief that any given child will survive to adulthood.
The sad truth is, when you lose children to malaria at the rate they do in Africa, you have more kids to cover the losses.
As Bill _ACTUALLY SAID IN THE TALK_ when countries have medical security the people choose to have less children.
Of course, you didn't actually bother to read what he said or try and grasp context. You latched onto whatever out of context quote best fit your conspiracy theory and ran with it.
Heaven forbid the truth get in the way or your ideology.

Pre-vaccination how often were their polio, measels, mumps, protuses, etc outbreaks?

When vaccination schedules were followed, what happened to the number of outbreaks?

Now that parents are buying the lie about autism and failing to vaccinate their kids, what's happening?

When vaccination rates go up, disease numbers go down.
When vaccination rates go down, disease numbers go up.

If herd immunity is a myth, explain the data.

No, he's correct in that that is how scientists do studies with gene introduction.

What he's failing to grasp is that unlike this where people know exactly what gene is being added to what TEST PLANT in the lab, natural random mutation introduces an unknown number of unknown mutations into plants in the wild where we can't monitor nor test them.

But you know, random stuff going undetected is always better than controlled monitored and contained experiments. Riiiiiiight

Yes people know what gene is going where but we are talking the mixing of different species.
We are talking about pesticides built right into the corn that we also eat not just the bugs it kills when they eat it.
Animals are becoming sterile,sheep feeding on bt cotton plants are dead,it is contaminating other crops, it is bankrupting farmers it is destroying the soil,it is contaminating the water, thousands of farmers in India are killing themselves,Lab rats fed GMOs are full of cancerous tumors. And I have not touched all the issues with GMOs just a few.
But no problems here.Monsanto knows best.The only ones doing great is Monsanto and the ones who gave them the green light before decent studies were done.
Monsanto's plan is to controll the whole friggin food supply.

This knowing exactly about the stuff being better, over that random nature junk,is like saying controled radiation leaks are better than wild oxygen floating all over the place on a massive rampage.Just use the right words, in the right place, and wala it works and sounds good.

When was the last time you had mutton?

Which has nothing to do with America. Thousands of farmers in India are raping little girls too. Also nothing to do with us.
Lab rats fed GMOs are full of cancerous tumors.
That study has been discredited which you would know if you had read my earlier post the last time you brought it up.

You are combining two different issues. You are saying that rice hybrids or corn that is frost resistant is dangerous because some other company has overbearing contracts on seed sales with farmers.

They are two wildly different issues.

Oh, I know. You only fall for the stuff where there is no evidence to back it up. Like the vaccines.

A lot of kids get raped here too and it does matter how our neighbors in India are doing, they are as valid as we are.
The left over cotton plants have always been fed to sheep but the GMO cotton plants killed.I know it was only some sheep in India but they are dead as can be.
I'am waiting for the study that Russia is doing on GMOs.I'm guessing the French are also.

So I looked into your little story and here are the facts.

First off, India's farmer suicide rate has been steady since 1996. The Bt cotton you are blaming for it wasn't available in India until 2002.

Second, the event you are talking about with the sheep happened in 2006. It was an isolated event and the results of testing were inconclusive because there were a number of pesticides used on the cotton plants.

So, in the last six years either -
A) Bt cotton has been eaten and killed lots of sheep and no one noticed
B) Bt cotton was been eaten and had no effect on sheep because it was a secondary issue that caused the deaths
C) No sheep anywhere in India or elsewhere have managed to eat any Bt cotton which COMPLETELY defeats the "it can't be contained argument".

You think it is not significant because your child didn't die of a preventable disease as a result of someone else electing to forgo vaccination.
I suspect if you talk to the parents who have lost children to the resurgence of measel and mumps, you would find that THEY think it's a VERY significant issue.
You are perfectly within your rights to endanger your children. You are not within your rights to endanger EVERYONE ELSE'S children.
And when ignorance leads to dangerous behavior, it is important for SOMEONE to step in and tell the ignorant minority to STOP doing the thing which is endangering the majority.
Refusing to vaccinate your kids endangers the lives of EVERYONE.
It's like this "Nuggin" my child nor anyone else's child isn't going to die until it's time for God to take them. All of our days are numbered & NOTHING will change that day. God is in control. So all these ignorant government fearing people can run out & get whatever immunizations the government wants you to do to pad their pockets, but it isn't going to make any difference. The ones that have passed away already, then that was the day God intended.

Total Ideological BS. Walk in front of a bus doing about 50 miles an hour, only, and see what happens.
Put a loaded gun barrel in your mouth and pull the trigger, and see what happens.

Some people simply refuse to use the brain that God gave them and that's really why we're all in the mess we're in, today.
Too many listening to False Prophets and letting them tell them what to think, instead of thinking for themselves....Christian Radicals!
Just as dangerous as any Muslim Radical...a Radical is dangerous, no matter what Religion they believe in, because they are controlled by an Ideology...an EVIL Ideology...that's what makes them a Radical. And to use an old phase, "that's the Devil's Workshop", no matter what Religion it is! Don't believe it? Just look around you and see the damage it's already done...to ALL of us!
