I love how the most rational people on this site tend to get the "nuts" and "clueless" judgements while those who can't even spell vaccine get high marks for their (THEIR, people, not there or they're!) ranting and raving

Typical Topix behavior...the dumber the Post, the better the dumb Posters like it. I think it's because they feel better about themselves when they see that they're not the only Idiots in the World. Lol!
And Topix is the Idiot-Magnet of Social Websites, no matter what the subject is or what's being discussed.
BTW, I agree that vaccines are a lot more beneficial than they are harmful, for most Kids.

I dont have kids, but I would let them have some vacs, I mean my parents did, polo ... MMR and i would of gotten chickpox one if i had turned 11 and didnt have them yet, but for like Hep b and the flu shot, i wouldnt .... I got the first shot for hep b, and my dad told the school he was gonna sue them cuase it was against our religion to have shots, He got in the pray healing when i turn like 7, and they never questioned it. But I find the flu shot makes you sicker then if you got the flu, and the newer vacs, like the one for HPV they found out years after they have been giving it to girls to prevent HPV, that it only was affective against the HPV's that went away with time anyways and the side effects made a few girls die or worst there is a girl who is now stuck in a wheel chair from that shot, ..... So I guess it depends on WHICH ones.

You folks argument are based on the following:

1. The government should not tell me what to do with my property.

2. My children are my property.

Therefore,

The government should not tell me that I need to vaccinate my children.

Because the anti-vac people do not want to openly admit number 2, They search for another justification: namely, that the vaccinations do more harm than good. Problem is that the evidence they provide for this claim is of no scientific validity whatsoever.

I suspect that FOX devotees are more likely to object to vaccinations than those of the "mainstream media".

Then you are a danger to my kids and all the sick kids out there that ARE immunized. And I sure don't want you or your children within 50 Feet of me cause I dont want to possibly contract what you may have if not vaccinated

Well I hate to break it to you but trying to seriously debate topics on this site really just throws you down to their level. So I guess the idiot-magnet is workin.

I only hang around for the laughs and to poke a little fun from time to time. I was actually Bobby June several pages back

Funny side note, Chad is also slang for, typically, a Caucasian male who is a douchebag or a piece of poop that clings to the inside cheek and refuses to fall in the toilet.

Both seem appropriate here.

Grammar burn!

Absolutely not. We already have enough government intervention in our lives. Why would we want to give them an avenue into another aspect of it? If you give them an inch they will consume a mile. It is just the nature of government.

You are quite in error if you believe that you are one who is level-headed.

It is not the case that all people are able to make judgments in all areas. An MD is not a general education certificate.

Circumcision is not of my concern that is not going to kill your child Vaccines might!
That is a religious or personal choice.
Really you might want to look into it. Just like I thought jump on the vaccination high horse and ignore the damage of circumcision
