Fucking seriously, I don't have time for this shit.

Is your mommy instinct acting up? Or did you just happen to forget what the "e" in "poeTV" stands for?
I'd like to start a petition to change this user's name to R3TARD.
It's the internet, you'll get over my ratings, I'm sure.
But you DID have time to check back and respond.

That part struck me too... how is it that in this day and age someone doesn't understand that, not only does a vaccine provide you with basically the same heightened immune response as contracting the virus (at much lower risk), THAT THAT IS THE FUCKING POINT OF THEM?

We are primitive, superstitious creatures. Related: http://www.alternet.org/module/printversion/146552
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, science's opinion, man.

Hey, man. You got your opinion and I got my opinion. Your opinion is science and that's your opinion. And my opinion is that we never went to the moon, vaccines will kill us all, and dinosaurs built the pyramids of Giza.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to microwave a burrito, which runs on magic so that I can wave my American flag from my SUV, which runs also on magic, and drive over to get a satellite dish so I can watch FOX news. The dish receives magic. It is my god. My god is magic.
Now if you want an explanation for how stuff works, its because people pray them into existence. With sparkle power.

6 minutes in and I've given my monitor the finger. Good enough.

I made it the whole way through the program, but there's no way in hell I was going to start torturing myself with the comments section.
Those comments are nausea-inducing.
I started reading "Influence: The Science of Social Persuasion" because it was recommended on here (it is in fact very good). Anyway there is a story about two guys hawking transcendental meditation as a way to levitate, cure insomnia, syphilis maybe, who knows. The author of "Influence" (a research psychologist) was there with a logician friend, who tore the TM guys apart during Q&A. The TM guys still made a killing that night, and were clearly baffled by this. The author began talking to other audience members, who said things like, "it's a good thing your friend raised all those points, because I know if I'd gone home without buying the tapes, I would have thought more about what he'd said and decided against it. But I really want to cure my ____ so I bought them before I started doubting it."
Anyway, long story but, I see much of the same behavior in this: tortured parents who need to find SOME way to help their autistic kids, who could be shown all of the great science in the world to to prove that campaigning against vaccinations isn't helping anyone. But it's all they have, it's tied up with their hope, and so they will never ever let go.
The problem, of course, is that they're fucking it up for the rest of us in terms of herd immunity. Their irrational thinking doesn't just hurt their kids, it hurts other people's kids. Look up the effect the Wakeman study alone had on virus outbreaks in the UK. Why are we ok with (for instance) doing so much to prevent people from smoking pot, but then we let parents have this inviolate freedom to trot their little bundles of sick to school without vaccinations? Fuck. That.
It's "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion" and I have no idea how I invented a newer longer title for it.

ignorant and selfish cunt-bitches ruining america
why does anyone take jenny mccarthy seriously? i don't believe a history of professional beaver spreading qualifies you as a medical expert.
That confuses me so much. What kind of person is going to take the medical advice of a Z-grade faux actress over a doctor?
She's a MOM, case closed. Don't you know they can do/say whatever the fuck they want? They are sacred in this land.

Jenny McCarthy has literally killed children
If she can't have a functioning child than may they all die!
|Jet Bin Fever - 2010-05-01 |
This is a great documentary. There's so much evidence pointing in the right directions to disprove all this fear and suspicion. Parents want to blame everything but themselves and their own genetics for these things. And, to put other children at risk as a result of your negligence is akin to murder.

I look forward to a spike in congenital rubella syndrome, don't you?

Yeah, Polio is no problem. Please don't give my children any injections, I will have them do yoga and eat organic food and they will get all better.
it is natural to contract and fight off polio. we might as well go back to the spartan way of life and leave the newborn babies on a cliff side over night to make sure they were meant to survive.

What annoys me the most is the abuse and misuse of education. the woman with the PhD in English Literature (though of course we have no idea where she obtained it) was the most depressing.
Yeah, I can understand Jenny McCarthy not knowing what she's talking about. But the PhD lady made me physically angry when she said, "When do you stop vaccinating for a disease? We haven't had this disease in the US for 35 years." NO SHIT, THAT SEEMS TO CORRESPOND WITH THE TIME THE VACCINATIONS STARTED GETTING WIDE USE, EH? God I wanted to punch her through the internet.
That part drove me fucking nuts, too. HEY YOU STUPID CUNT
THERE ARE TONS, MAYBE EVEN BILLIONS, OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIVE IN THE US
YOU STUPID FUCKING CUNT

Why are we giving children so many books? My kids got 4 times as many books as I got growing up in the 70s.

To be fair, it should be a split between her, Andy Wakefield and that J.B. Handley dickbag.
Hell, why don't we steal a page from the anti-abortion assholes and pass a law saying that before you opt out of a vaccination program you have to watch a short film of some children with encephilitis caused by measels or chicken pox, some dying of diptherea, some more of pertussis, and then a survivor of polio gets to smack you around with their cane a bit.

Next you'll be telling me there are people who think AIDS doesn't really exist.
Why should I worry about AIDS? My children are not going to grow up to be homosexuals.
|Camonk - 2010-05-01 |
This was actually an interesting, though thoroughly enraging, thing to watch.
There's one part, I think part 2, where the dumb English PhD mom starts in on how there hasn't been a case of a person in the US being diagnosed with polio since 1979, a whopping 31 years ago. I couldn't stop from calling her a cunt out loud over and over and over again.
