May 4, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Chattanoogan.com

Immunizations are one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to protect children against childhood diseases and Tennessee law requires documented immunizations.

Did I grasp how to make wrong look right by moving words around in the right way?
I'm not falling for it.
Oh, I know. You only fall for the stuff where there is no evidence to back it up. Like the vaccines.

Let me guess, you're also a fan of accupuncture and homeopathy as well

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.
<quoted text>
That study has been discredited which you would know if you had read my earlier post the last time you brought it up.
<quoted text>
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.
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!

Okay, just one thing here. "Christian Radicals"? I kinda see myself as a "Christian Radical" because I'm so radically different from most who call themselves "Christian". May I, respectfully, suggest ... "Religious Radicals" which will cover a larger group, or maybe just "Lemmings" which will cover an even larger demographic including all of those who refuse to think, and take responsibility, for themselves? Aside from that I am compelled to agree, though I wish this were not so.

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.
Most that I know talk mainly about how the US was drawn into the war by convincing Japan that the US and China were colluding against them, thus manipulating Japan into bombing Pearl Harbor to attempt to prevent this union. Truth is, the People did not want to get involved, just like in the first World War, and just like in the first we were dragged into it by manufactured rhetoric. But, you know, that's just the ones I know.

Not the same people.
True, they aren't the same people, but interestingly they all follow the same agenda. Watch any "News" broadcast and how odd is it to hear the same buzz words coming from diverse organizations? The word "Radicalize", "Radicalization", and plain old "Radical" have been prominent lately, but do you know why, and what agenda is driving the usage of that word? If not, don't sweat it, you're not alone. There are other words that are also cycling through, but I'd dare say that unless they tap on your particular compartment you're probably missing them.

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.
Oh yes, that has worked so well here in the US. Well, it has in the more affluent communities, but not so much in the less affluent it seems.

The central issue here, as I see it, is ownership. Who owns me, who owns my children? I have to ask you why you've worked so hard to distract from that central issue.

You know? Someone should be logging this for future review. I'm guessing this might be very interesting reading in three to five years.

... really? You aren't even thinking before you post, are you?

The point Bill made was _access to health care results in a reduction in the number of children families choose to have_.

Your counter to that is that in America only the wealthy families (AKA _the ones with access to health care_) are seeing a reduction in birthrate while the poor families (AKA _the ones WITHOUT access to health care_) are still having high birth rates.

In other words _exactly what Bill said_!

First off, I'd like to point out this sentence of yours:

"Who owns my children?"

Pretty f'ing ironic.

Second, you don't have the right to endanger other people. Criminals own their own bodies, but we lock those bodies in jails.

You are allowed to make decisions, but you need to LIVE WITH the decisions you make.

If you decide that you want to carry around a machete and swing it randomly, you are free to do so. However, you must stay on your own property and at least two arm lengths away from everyone else.

If you decide to be a harbor for infectious disease, then you must stay away from people for whom that disease is a serious threat.

That means that children who are not vaccinated will not be allowed in public schools where their lack of responsibility can harm the children of more responsible parents.

Again, you are FREE to do whatever the hell you want. You just have to LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES of those choices.

Those of affluence tend to choose to either have fewer, or in some cases no, children for reasons other than access to health care, or do you really think they're that superficial? Their choices come from an improved education and based in a deeper reflection on the human condition.

You really are quite presumptuous in telling me what my rights are not, while avoiding the central issue. Are your textual criticism skills so poor?

What I am doing is putting you and your words on display. We have reached the point where you have established certain patterns of action that are visible to those reading. I tend to believe in the innate intelligence of individuals, and I don't look at people as a herd.

All things have consequences, some good, some bad. Perhaps you're beginning to see that you too have consequences, some of which will have effects on your children, and their children as well, perhaps to the third and fourth generations. But then, maybe you haven't thought about it that far. I honestly don't know, but your own doctrine of interdependence says that my choices with my own children will have repercussions for generations to come, not just with my own progeny, but also with all of those they interact with. I am quite content with the dynamics I've set in motion, are you?

My youngest turns 26 this year. And just who do you think you are to tell anyone what to do?

Thus far you've been rude, uncouth, quite vulgar at times, and you've argued against your own assumptions but not against much of anything I've said, yet you seek to exercise authority over me and mine?

While you hide behind your keyboard and spout your governmental slavery propaganda, doesn't it just irritate you to no end that there are those of us who are literate, learned, and stand against you? Call me stupid if it makes you feel like a big boy, but all you've done is parade for everyone else just how petty and small you are, and how closed your mind really is. I should also mention that you've illustrated quite nicely how judgmental you are.

So, aside from being an apologist for tyranny, a governmental stooge, judgmental and condemning, and not really all that good with the reading skills, what else do you want to show us?

So true, so true. I can't help but think they are victims of the government school system. It is odd how the government spends so much money on schools, yet education is so poor, but the government does get what it pays for.

To paraphrase, they want people educated just enough to operate the machinery and do the paperwork, but not capable of critical autonomous thinking. They want drones for their collective, not rational intelligent individuals because they don't conform so easily, and might lead some others to independent thoughts and actions of their own.

Who is telling anyone what to do?

You live in a society in which laws exist. You are free to choose to follow those laws or to break them.

If you choose to break those laws, then there will be consequences.

Stop trying to blame everyone else for decision you make.

If you speed, you will get a ticket.
If you shoot someone, you will go to jail.
If you drink too much, your liver will die.

It's all about choice.

If you choose to not vaccinate your children, you will have to home school them.

No one is forcing you to do anything.
While you hide behind your keyboard and spout your governmental slavery propaganda, doesn't it just irritate you to no end that there are those of us who are literate, learned, and stand against you?
It does not irritate me because, as you've demonstrated, you are neither literate, learned, nor mature enough to understand that I am not the government therefore standing against me is meaningless.

I am telling you how things should be. This isn't a debate. This is an education. I'm telling you how things ARE.

If you aren't capable of understanding how things are, that's not a problem for him. Your ignorance won't change the consequences of your actions.

You'll make your decisions. You'll have to live with the consequences. Period.

If you choose not to vaccinate your children, then you are choosing to keep them out of the public school system. That is all.

It's called freedom. Welcome to America.
I should also mention that you've illustrated quite nicely how judgmental you are.
Oh damn, I just bought this irony meter yesterday and now you've gone and broken it.
So, aside from being an apologist for tyranny, a governmental stooge, judgmental and condemning...
And here I was just reading about how you think I'm judgmental...

Seriously. You claim to have children near 30, but you sound like you're 15.

I don't happen to believe that, but if you're right , then the People are playing right into their hands by not making any attempt to educate themselves , in any way, on any subject. There are numerous sources of information that anybody can find and read, without hardly any effort, at all, and if they won't do it, then they are staying willfully ignorant on purpose, and waiting for somebody to tell them what to think about practically everything that matters....and THAT is their own fault!
