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. 


Studies show vaccines do not have adverse reactions?
Nope Currently, all vaccines have possible adverse reactions. 


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.


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


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.

Then please, feel free to NOT get any shots ever. Also, please never go to a doctor or dentist.

Surprisingly, 95% of all individuals infected with polio have no apparent symptoms.

Another 4%– 8% of infected individuals have symptoms of a minor, non-specific nature, such as sore throat and fever, nausea, vomiting, and other common symptoms of any viral illness.

About 1%– 2% of infected individuals develop non-paralytic aseptic meningitis, with temporary stiffness of the neck, back, and/or legs.

Less than 2% of all polio infections result in the classic "flaccid paralysis," where the patient is left with permanent weakness or paralysis of legs, arms, or both.

So what? All diseases are carried by people and most never know it. True of flu, etc. Again, so what? Don't want the vaccine don't get it. Don't want your kid to get it, home school them, but don't inflict your stupidity on my kids.

I addressed Zeke, not you.
ZEKE said Prove 95% of polio cases are non flaccid, so I did.

Since live virus vaccines shed, perhaps it is you who should home school your kids.
Or, do as Paul Offit says, get 10,000 vaccines a day. Hey they can handle it, he said so.
I know, lets extrapolate the the amount of mercury & aluminum in a routine well baby visit & adjust it to weight for an adult, then you can take it....roll up that sleeve, there's nothing to fear....right?

No you didn't. Like all your other posts, you are wrong about that too. It really doesn't matter though. This is an open forum and I don't need to wait on an invitation from anyone to comment.
