Perhaps you feel fine trusting folks with a background of deceit and basically criminal activity selling drugs they know are deadly and a regulatory agency that lets them get by with a small fine and no jail time.
Sorry Charley I'm not so forgiving or trusting.
You have no understanding of science either.

I address one point only. The suppression of research that contradicts the drug companies claims about the effectiveness.

In order to support the claim that the studies have been wrongly suppressed, you need to know what constitutes a scientifically acceptable study. Without understanding this you do not have enough evidence to claim corruption on the basis of wrongful suppression.

That being said, the assumption made by the anti-vaccine people is that one bad drug means that all are bad. Perhaps, then, we need to just let nature take its course with disease.

Just another reason to get the hell out of the 3rd most corrupt state in the Nation as soon as possible! That along with a 10% tax rate that nobody other than Nashville country stars and their agents can afford!

Can you tell me where you learned this is the 3rd most corrupt state? I'd like to read that.

I didn't see "income tax" I believe he was speaking of our sales tax rate. If you were capable of thinking that might have dawned on you.

You are the one who cannot think. To take a somewhat typical example. In idaho, a married couple who earns a (pitiful) 21,000 pays about 5.1% of that in state income taxes that is about 1070 dollars. The state sales tax is 6%(higher in some cities). If we assume that the couple spends. 18,000 of that money they would pay 1080 in sales taxes.

So the couple pays state taxes of 2150 dollars. Those in Tennessee will pay 1800 in sales tax and no income tax.

So where would you prefer to live if taxation were the only issue?

I only pointed out the error in your thinking, you know regarding the 10% tax rate mentioned in the post.
You, dear Zekester, were the one who jumped straight to "state income tax"
now you've made another leap.
ADD much?

Most of you that posts on here w/ negativity aimed at the others that Do Not want vaccines mandated really believe you are so smart and believe anything the government tells you that is in those vaccines so my question is do you believe everything your it's told you ? What about all your politicians? MRS. LERNER? Our government is so honest and you guys think you know so much then why is our country in so trouble with you all's knowledge?

People like you who have no understanding of science, and who have no argument tend, like you have done, to accuse those who disagree with your opinion of not thinking for themselves.

Your last statemtents are based on a false assumption: because a few are corrupted, it does not mean everybody is corruoted. Or are you claiming to be corrupted as well--in which case you are also lying.

News flash, genius, the government doesn't tell us what is in vaccines. The manufacturers do to some extent, but most vaccinations, such as tetanus, have the contents available to see, but that is rarely done.

I've read all the double blind placebo controlled "official" studies on vaccines. It took like zero time, cause there are zero studies.

Studies show that vaccinated children are healthier than unvaccinated children?
Nope. No large-scale study in the United States has been done to date. &#8232;

Studies show vaccines do not have adverse reactions?
Nope Currently, all vaccines have possible adverse reactions. &#8232;

Studies show vaccines do not cause any health conditions, including the ones they’re designed to prevent.
Nope. All vaccines can and have caused the very diseases they’re designed to prevent.

&#8232;Studies show that herd immunity applies to vaccinations?
Nope. It has been presumed that herd immunity applies to vaccines. &#8232;

Studies show vaccines actually prevent disease?
Nope. Currently, not a single study to date has proven this. This hypothesis is dependent upon the assumption that every single person would have gotten the disease if they weren’t vaccinated and that vaccinations are the only way to prevent disease.

Believe it or not, polio is asymptomatic in 95% of people who actually get it; and prior to polio vaccine licensure, anything with paralysis lasting longer than 24 hours would have yielded a polio diagnosis. Aseptic and viral meningitis, Coxsackie virus, hand foot mouth, transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Syphilis, DDT, arsenic, and lead poisoning etc. were all diagnosed as polio prior to the vaccine. Seriously, you could play dead and get a polio diagnosis.

After vaccine licensure, diagnostic criteria changed to make the vaccine look more effective. The 220, 365 cases of non-paralytic polio that occurred between 1960 and 1992 were now labeled “aseptic meningitis.” This is just one of many examples. Not to mention that the only cases of polio recorded between 1973 and 2000 were caused by the vaccine. So we should all ask ourselves, did our dear friend, neighbor, or relative with polio actually have polio? If they did have polio, was it caused by the vaccine? Are they in a wheel-chair? If so, was it due to the barbaric methods used by the medical profession to treat polio? While we’re at it, does our dear friend, neighbor, or relative have cancer? If so, was it caused by the polio vaccine?

So, you can't even come up with your own name? yes, we don't believe the sh1t you say because it isn't true.
