If the school system treated the undocumented children the same way they treat citizens then we would not be seeing the rise in diseases.

LC Schools do not require a birth certificate from them so how could we Document their immunization records.

Legal immigrants are required to have TB shots/testing that are documented to make sure diseases are not transferred from country to country.

Rules should be applied to all or none at all.

Whooping Cough on SERIOUS rise!! I pity the parent who refused immunizations and their child gets one of the preventable diseases. We are no longer in the dark ages and it is a shame when we chose to not immunize and put our own children at risk. More and more children arenot receiving this care and so therefore we will continue to see these diseases increase. I do not think it is because parent have researched the information. For most it because they are too lazy to comply.
Yep. it is serious. The virus has mutated & the vaccine no longer works.

Pertussis cases have been on the rise since the 1900's, even though 97.1% of the deaths occurred in fully vaccinated individuals.

Vaccine failure is to blame, not the unvaxed child.

Immunizing your child could keep hundreds of other children disease free. Obviously because of the number of lives saved by these shots, they should be required and those who wont take the shots, should be removed from the planet.

If I told you sticking your hand in a fire would only hurt for about 10 seconds, and if you kept it held to the fire, the fire would give you super powers, and you would simply try it?

You would probably still say no right?

Well what if I told you I was a doctor, and REALLY promised to you that me and my colleagues spent billions(of your money) on research, to make sure they are "ok"? And yes we found out this method was indeed AWESOME, and every child should burn the ever loving shit out of their hands immediately, so they do not get left out.

This is EXACTLY the same theory of what you speak of. The "research" is about 90% wrong and invalid. The "medical" association keeps those "funds" and simply puts 10%, to the most hoodwinked "research" you can possibly do, and then promise it is ok.

Also, why in the hell do you trust the same "industry", that has the cure for aids,cancer,and many other diseases but fails to GIVE them to the people who are "sick" with them? Yes they do have a US Patent number for cures for cancer,aids, and diseases, but with no sick people, how are they going to turn those massive profits?

Waivers are easily available from any health dept.
The Constitution of the United States specifically declares a separation between church & state.
Read the 1st & 14th amendments.
Any agency receiving federal dollars cannot refuse your admission based on your religious beliefs, nor can they force you to accept any medical procedure against your religious/philosophical beliefs.
Tell the person at the school to show you where it's written.
They can't. Period.
Waivers? You support the idea that parents need to get permission to exercise authority over their families, and that it is the government that holds ultimate authority. Is this a true statement, because from what you've said above it sure seems to be.

The first 5 words of the First Amendment are, "Congress shall make no laws ..." which tells me that the Constitution and amendments are to restrict the authority of government, not to grant us privileges and call them rights and civil liberties.

It sure seems to me that America, the one I defended during Vietnam, the one I learned about in school, the one that many generations of my family have defended since the Revolution is now dead, and I'm not sure what has taken her place.

For my own part, you're welcome. I'm just glad I never had to do the job I was trained to do.

I'm sorry too that I'm right. I had a friend in Wales and we started talking about property taxes, and he informed me they don't have property taxes in the UK. When they buy a home, the government can not touch it, ever. That's when I started looking more closely at many of the things we take for granted, and found them to be different than we assume.

A TB vaccine does not fall under chilhood shots given in US.
Your measles and mumps and polio shots are not TB shots in the first place.

You are correct. I am the holder of the patents you speak of, but I have relinquished all my rights to these patents, so feel free to make and distribute these cures to your hearts content.

Your attempt at sarcasm is not flattering to you at all. In fact it makes you sound rather foolish. Please give more thought to what you post before you post it; not for my/our sakes, but for your own.

Dum my homework, you are correct also. These crazies need professional help. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

Youre barking up the wrong tree concerning whooping cough and its supposed mutation..you would be closer to hitting that mark investigating CRD in poultry..there is no vacine for that..only treatment..or breed it out of the flock..
