NO. I'm tired of the dadgum government coming into every aspect of our lives! Kids aren't animals. How about more freedom for a change, I'm tired of all this mandatory bullcrap.
Would you be in favor of people having the freedom to rob you? To beat your kids? Freedom to drive on the sidewalk? Freedom to burn tires in their backyard up wind from you house? Would you be in favor of the freedom to swing machetes around while walking through the supermarket? How about dumping mercury down people's drinking wells?

Freedom does not mean "do whatever the f you want". Your freedom ends where my safety begins.

Not vaccinating your children means you are endangering the lives of all other Americans.

So, if you want THAT kind of Freedom, move to Afghanistan.

This is why people like you shouldn't be allowed to make up your own minds. You don't HAVE one.

Picture shows people standing in what looks like a hospital, dressed in scrubs and clothing you'd see on drs. and nurses, but fine print below that says:
"Health care provided by military personnel"
What exactly does that mean, and more important - Why?
Our military is skilled at moving resources around. Hospitals are fantastic, however they don't move very fast or very far.

If you want to get medical treatment to a backwater like Alabama, you can't simply rely on the "people" there to make it to a proper medical facility (likely 3 or more states away).

No, you have to BRING educated people TO Alabama to treat the "people" who already live there.

Imagine giving someone in Alabama a hypodermic needle and allowing them to use it themselves? Fifteen blind people later, you'd quickly realize that this is the state for which things like "safety pencils" were invented.

LMAO! How embarrassing...not to mention, painful! LNAO!

I knew a Girl once that her Husband was messing around on her with the Next Door Neighbor.. So, she left him. But, she went back for one last "fair the well", waited until he went to sleep after she had exhausted him, super-glued his penis to his belly, then left. He had to go to the ER to get it "unglued"...true Story! LOl!
For some strange reason, I've admired that Woman ever since! Lol! What a Gal! LMAO!

NOPE, I wouldn't have ever thought of doing that! I'm not saying that I wouldn't have done it, under the right circumstances. I'm just saying that I wasn't smart enough to think of it!

I went to school with her. I think that's why I remember it after all this time, because it was something I'd never heard of before nor thought about doing.
I laughed my Butt off though, when I heard about it...and so did everybody at the ER, so I was told.
She was a really nice Person and I liked her. I didn't know him that well, but I always thought that he kinda had an attitude. Maybe, he coped that attitude with her, one too many times! LOL! I don't know, what I've told you, is all I know about it, except the Name of the One he was messing with...and I'm not telling you that!
But, the wife married a nice Guy, so I heard and as far as I know, they are still happily married , after all these many years!
So, All's well that Ends Well, I guess! Lol!

Saw that happen to a small boy. The dad tried, but finally went to the doctor.

I just gave you some facts and where I found some of them. Are you not clever enough to understand what you read?

Part of the issue here has to do with two medical philosophies. The source you gave is an osteopath (allied wi th homeopathy) rather than an MD.

Dr. Mercola is an MD.
An Osteopath is an MD and has more education then an MD.
