Like them or not, they make good arguements. People actually believe in that dangerous crock of shit.

Saying "F*CK" a lot does not make your point better. It doesn`t make it stronger or more dynamic or more convincing. It does set the tone and makes you sound kinda stupid that that has to be your opening remark.

Just sayin

Apparently, `elitism` as a concept has negative implications - it`s related to snobbery etc.

Personally, I`d let the scientists and the `elitists` run world governmetns.

Might sound cruel, but let Darwinism take this one.

1) Nobody gets vaccinations, one person catches a spreading sickness and many thousands die from having no immunity to it. Like the Native Americans!

2) Everyone gets a vaccination, some very rare cases someone has a adverse effect on it, the disease is wiped out and nobody has to worry about their mortality when someone sneezes near them.

I pick 2, because I don`t want to live like those kids in Africa dying from diseases we don`t have anymore.

My girlfriend will appreciate this one when she comes home, it really sets her off on a rant when she hears one of her hippy mates saying how they don`t believe in the value of vaccinations.

The proble is that vaccination is never perfect. A small number of treated children can catcht he disease. This did not happen to a significant degree before the anti-vaccination hysteria, because there were not enough to keep the infection spreading. With large numbers of unvaccinated kids the diseases can again thrive, and hit a few vaccinated children.

OldOllie: If it was only for themselves I wouldn`t mind, but if they involve their children and take that desicion for them, then THAT`S bad in my book.

I was born in 1956 and nearly died of chicken-pox when I was 2 years old. Like SavageChef says, it was extremely unpleasant, with boils covering every bit of skin. (and I mean every bit). I survived and still have scars from some of the worst eruptions.
One outcome of this event is a compromised immune system and the prospect of shingles to come in later life.
We had all the vaccines available at the time, and had they not been done, I would have a lot less of my contemporary friends still alive.

SavageChef: Chicken pox vaccine was invented in 1988 and introduced in the USA in 1995. So yes, they did have it in the 90`s.

Also, Shingles is nasty but doesn`t effect adults until their 60`s or if the immune system is compromised. The shingles vaccine, Zostavax, costs over $100 and is not fool-proof, read up on it.

Eventually it will be available as a generic and the cost will go down. Until then Merck has been scaring a lot of 50 year olds into getting an expensive shot that does not prevent the shingles in everyone.

And, by the way, seeing my baby girl suffer with chicken pox, which she had down her throat and inside her eyelids, was terrifying.

My great uncle (aged three, I think), died from diphtheria. My sister-in-law suffered from polio, and has post-polio-syndrome to this day. I contracted the two-weeks measles, and chicken pox. This means that I could have shingles someday, which, by the way, because they did not have a vaccine for chicken pox in the 1990`s, my daughter got shingles. Anyone who does not get their child vaccinated is an non-nice individual.

Wouldn`t it be great of Penn Jillette ran for president? Can you even imagine him in a debate? It wouldn`t matter which party; he rip them all new @$$holes.

Vaccinations are hugely important. The anti-vaccination narrative is fed by uneducated tin-foil hat wearing types. Hippies and right wing survivalist types alike, and a whole lot of people in between. Stupidity knows no limits.

Polio, hell, take a look at some nasty-ass pictures of small pox! Deadliest disease in the history of mankind, completely wiped off the face of the Earth by vaccinations! Most amazing feat in history.

We shouldn`t force vaccinations on people. If they want to chlorinate their own gene pool, let them.

nubblins: I grew up in a time when polio vaccinations were mandatory, in order to go to school. And I nearly died of Scarlet fever at age 3.

What I find hard to believe is, people protect their kids like precious little snowflakes so much these days, yet some of these same people refuse to vaccinate their kids, WTF?!

For those people that don`t believe in vaccinations... All I have to say is each their own. It is your kid, you make the choices for them. However while you are at it.. Watch a few medical documentaries about polio and other diseases that we vaccinate against nowadays, and really think about your choices in not getting them vaccinated. There are some really nasty bugs out there.
