Sep 17, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KCEN

Four years ago, Gov. Rick Perry put aside his social conservative bona fides and signed an order requiring Texas girls to be vaccinated against HPV.

I think the public schools SHOULD require the students to be vaccinated agasint HPV, just as they are required to be vaccinated against other diseases.

HPV can cause cancer. HPV can KILL you. It is the only VD we have a vaccine for.

If there was a vaccine for Syphillis, ghonnerhea (sp?) or hiv, people would be DEMANDING it.

Why NOT be vaccinated against HPV ?

I think public schools should require it to prevent its spread to uninfected students.

I like the way you wrote the comment - I wish everybody would do it that way.
"I think" identifying an opinion. Then facts that can be easily proven. Then asking "why not?" and closing with tying it all together. Cohesive, informative and civil. I like that.

The vaccinations required today are to keep infectious deseases from running rampant through the population.
MMR, polio, small pox, and the other vaccines stopped the spread of highly contagious deseases that have killed and maimed millions of Americans throughout history. There is a very real chance that if on a large scale Americans stopped receiving these vaccines that these deseases could find their back into American life.

This new vaccine does not stop the spread of cancer. It will not keep someone from developing cancer. The virus itself is not deadly. It has been linked to a certain kind of cancer and MAY be responsible for a certain percentage of cervical cancer cases.

Ol Rick Perry did not sign this executive order to save the lives of Texans. He passed this order to boost sale of the vaccine after being approached by the drug company that produces Gardisil.

Money is the driving factor in this executive order. Not the protection of America.

And yes you are correct. When a HIV vaccine is created, Americans will demand it. HIV is an infectious desease that spreads easily and can still kill quite effectively.

Fred and Researcher, you have both renewed my faith in intelligence. This vaccine should be no different than any other, and treated as such. The purpose of vaccines are to prevent life-threatening diseases. Why would anyone NOT want to try and save a life?

Show me the facts! Present your case. And not some flake's take on things. True scientific facts. I'm waiting. lmao

I take it you think cancer doesn't kill? What rock did you crawl out from under? Maybe you should rethink your position and crawl back under it.

This is too easy. How hard can it be to twart a dufus who say's " I take it you think cancer doesn't kill? Dufus. LMAO. Here are some non-scientific facts that cannot be denied. The U.S government was forced to rescue vaccine providers from its victims by creating a vaccine injury compensation plan (which includes deaths of different etiology) and a vaccine injury court. The court deals with cases harder to define and understand as vaccine caused, because we have only scratched the surface as to what constitues vaccine caused illness, injury and death. But likely knowing the expanding knowledge is catching up on the decades of lies and coverup, the government in 2010 gave vaccine makers blanket immunity from all forms of litigation. Funny why an industry that claims to only have rare and mild reactions to its products would need all this special protection that sets an absolute precedent.
Obviouly you haven't made the slightest effort to understand vaccine injury. A lazy thinker wouldn't, its easier to just rely on loud-mouthed opinion instead, and just remain ignorant of meaningful information. Read the following from Dr Dianne Harper, who worked for Merck, and helped develope the Gardasil vaccine. She states in this report that the HPV vaccine will do little to reduce cervical cancer rates. That only 5% of HPV infections coincide with the development of cervical cancer, one of the most treatable forms of cancer.

You'll notice this is from 1991, so its old news that's been ignored by all involved.

Basic prescription drug coverage
Beginning in 2006, a prescription drug benefit, called Medicare Part D, was made available. Coverage is available only through insurance companies and HMOs and is voluntary.
Benefit: Enrollees paid the following initial costs for the initial benefits described herein. A minimum monthly premium of $24.80 (premiums may vary), a $180 to $265 annual deductible, 25%(or approximate flat copay) of full drug costs up to $2,400. After this initial coverage limit is met a period commonly referred to as the "Donut Hole" begins where an enrollee may be responsible for the insurance company's negotiated price of the drug which is less than the retail price without insurance. This was modified by later statutes.

Medicare Part D
Its most touted change is the introduction of an entitlement benefit for prescription drugs, through tax breaks and subsidies.
In the years since Medicare's creation in 1965, the role of prescription drugs in U.S. patient care has significantly increased

First of all, only a true "Dufus" would call someone a "Dufus". LMAO Come out from under your rock. It is, after, 2012.

Now on to your drivel. You obviously haven't been faced with your own mortality regarding cancer as I have. If you had, you'd be less knee-jerk reactionary regarding vaccines. It's a proven statistic that more people died prior to vaccines being readily available from diseases that didn't have to be life-threatening than the number of people negatively affected by vaccines. So on that note alone, your post is dangerous.

Secondly, I honestly don't understand why someone would feel they should be compensated from the vaccine manufacturers should things have a negative impact on them. Afterall, vaccines are voluntary and it's up to each parent to do their own research and weigh the pros and cons of the diseases the vaccine is intended to prevent. And I do know what I'm speaking of, after working in the healthcare field with parents of newborns. Those very same parents that didn't want to vaccinate their children, and not potentially infect the others they come into contact with, were the very same parents who complained when they were turned away from the medical facility I worked with. The alternative was to passify one parent, and risk the safety of many babies.

Do you think I ever considered suing the manufacturer of the pneumonia vaccine I received, and subsequently had a severe reaction to? Not in this lifetime. It was my choice to assume the risks when I received the vaccine. No one made me take it, and no should have to pay just because I'm one of the few, it seems, turned out to have a sensitivity to something in it.

And for every article you find against, I can find one in support:

http://pediatrics.about.com/od/immunizations/...

Once again, it seems like an issue of people trying to blame others for their decisions instead of taking responsibility themselves. Every time something goes wrong, people tend to want to blame others and SUE, SUE, SUE. And as a female in a family where female cancers are prevalent, I'll do what's necessary to try and prevent my daughter from having to endure what I did. And losing my grandmother to female cancers just enforces my decision that much more.

But the truth is, Paul said, they're the same party.

"We don’t have a good democratic process," Paul said. "What happens if you come to the conclusion, as millions of Americans have, these parties aren’t different, they’re all the same. The monetary policy stays the same. The welfare system stays the same. The foreign policy stays the same. They get pretty disgusted. There is but one party."

It's very difficult to watch how the changing of American presidents has almost no effect on most of this country's policies and not think that Paul is right.

AT THE VERY LEAST ROMNEY IS A DOUCHE

His state has the same kind of plan as Obamacare. He opposes it simply because his puppet masters tell him to. The only republican with balls in the whole federal government is the one who will come out and say Obamacare will not destroy America.
Why do no republicans speak out against the party?
Did any members of the Third Reight survive having an opinion?

Proof?
"By September 1994, with Mr. Kennedy tied up in Washington working on President Bill Clinton’s health care bill, polls were showing a tight race. Alarmed, the Kennedy campaign sent a video crew to Indiana to interview factory workers who had been laid off by Ampad, a paper products company that had been acquired by Bain Capital.

The resulting advertisements featuring struggling, angry workers sent Mr. Romney’s ratings, and his confidence, sliding.“He looked like someone who had seen a ghost,” said Joseph Malone, a Republican and former Massachusetts state treasurer, who ran into Mr. Romney soon after the commercials ran.

Those commercials are still having an effect on Mr. Romney today.“They seeded the public perception of him as a takeover artist who made his money stripping companies and firing people,” said Robert Shrum, the Kennedy strategist who produced them.

Mr. Kennedy’s strong debate performance in late October in Faneuil Hall also caught Mr. Romney off guard. On Election Day, Mr. Romney lost, 58 percent to 41 percent. Later, over dinner with Mr. Malone, he lamented that he had failed to define himself."
