Just thought I'd point out that I agree with you on something - it does happen from time to time!

Blues: Well you don't hear anything, do you? It is not politically correct to point this out lest the pointer be accused of racism. However there is much grumbling in the local news and online showing that measles, polio, tuberculosis and other diseases long since thought to be vanquished in this country are coming back. No mention of why, apart from blaming the Anti Vaxxers, whose numbers have not increased so much that they should be having any impact on the increase in these cases.

I am not one who takes things at face value and I am not one who believes, without checking, anything a politician tells me, especially a left-wing politician.

So I look at where these stories originate, and guess what? They correspond to the Sanctuary City locations! Now who would have guessed that? Surely my government is not lying to me again? The illegals, even though never checked by Border Patrol for signs of illness but who are transported at government (my) expense to the city of their choice, and then helped to apply for benefits at government (my) expense and then placed in housing at government (my) expense where they sit beside my kids in school, coughing and spitting at will, crapping in the schoolyard (don't believe me? Go look for yourself and take a look at San Francisco streets while you are at it) with nary a thermometer or stethoscope having been applied or tests carried out to see if they carry TB (A very nasty incurable strain is endemic in their homelands) or any other disease.

But it is really funny, indeed hilarious because you never hear anyone calling those people (no fault of their own, don't get me wrong I don't blame them for taking advantage of the Yankee Suckers, of which I are one) antivaxxers, or bludgers, or hobos, or failures, or MAGA supporters, or any other pejorative name; those titles are reserved for the ones who do not agree with the Left and the open borders or burning of the Constitution or mob rule or abortion on demand and more than my stomach can handle right now. Yes, every time I see someone hurting because some illegal alien has driven into a crowd and killed their cousin or kidnapped and raped a 13 year old girl and every time I see 25 people living in the same house, applying for and getting thousands of dollars a week in benefits, using the emergency room as free healthcare (Get that? Free? what part of Free don't you understand? Free for those scum means others pay for it and guess who is one of those others? Yep, give that man a coconut!) and spreading their germs and diseases, I Iaugh with delight because of the stupidity of my fellow left-leaning man who buys into all that crap. And of course I have no rights; I might be an Anti Vaxxer!

This world is going to hell. But step up and get in line. Follow orders (how did that work out for the Germans?) Don't think. Just obey.

I admire a man (person) who can differentiate the degree of lying emanating from a politicians lips by his political leaning.
You sir, are truly gifted.

I always thought they were exactly the same in that respect.

You mean from a Left or Right wing politician? I have to admit, Sir, you are right about that. I cannot tell the difference and am more likely to be fooled by the Right.

I think I'm seeing where all this is going, boofer.
'Vaccines' is just a vehicle.

Buswinker is correct, Gardasil hasn't been banned and in Japan the government simply stopped actively encouraging HPV vaccinations after unsubstantiated reports of adverse reactions. Further studies have shown no link between the vaccine and the reported 'reactions'.

...unsubstantiated reports of adverse reactions....
Could these be the reports that Boofhead was referring to back in post #37?

Was at an instructors seminar with a medic giving a talk...…

Started off with. "As pilots name me one medicine that you can take without consulting and declaring it to an AME"

Some wag at the front immediately came out with "water"

Give the Doc his due he immediately laughed and said "yes water is an extremely good medicine and no you wouldn't have to run that one past an AME, looks like I am going to have revise my lecture on this subject"

Yeras ago when we had littlie 1 there was lots of stuff on about not vaxxing. As new parents we want to do what was right but the sheer amount of crap that was out there and being read was difficult to wade through.

Eventually I called a GP friend who was an ex GF. Trust her judgement way more so than others I know, knew as she was preggers at time we deciding that she would be brutally honest. She outlined options but made it clear that her soon to be born would be vaccinated, having to deal with outbreaks of some of the stuff they were being vaxxed against was not pretty. She became adamant a couple of years later with patients that if they took that decision then they were asked to find a new practice.

Similar to the way people from Asia are allergic to cows milk. If a parent (and society) bans nuts so that a kid never eats any she will not develop this immunity and then when a teenager eats one nut and dies.

Growing up I rarely saw peanuts apart from Halloween and Christmas therefore never really an issue.

100 years ago there were many people who had never travelled more than 10 miles from place of birth or even seen a Non white foreigner, the world has moved on and doubt any of those exist any more.

In case it appears again it can be identified and the fear is that it will be combined with something else to do more damage.
