An example of what can happen in communities with low vax levels (in this case, due to poor access to healthcare among migrant farm workers).

"If it were a deadly disease then ALL of the people who got it would die."


Crunchy, now you're just being ridiculous and downright mean-spirited.

"I never said, well its the wrong recommendation so no one is complying"


I understood your original meaning.

Honestly, crunchy, if you want to be rude, snide and derogatory towards everyone who doesn't agree with you

What is your response then to vaccines that have killed people? Is that just considered the price for maintaining the herd and calling it a public duty? (just curious). Or, how about chorinic illnesses? Is that just considered the "small price to pay"?

You said: "Most of us consider things with a reasonable possibility of killing someone to be deadly.

"Because of being mandatory for school admittance (other than allowed exemptions),"

That is the stupidest sentence I believe I've ever read before...

And yes I do realize that the wording is everything these days considering how dumb much of society is.

Mean spirited? NO! LOGICAL!!!

Over 900 did NOT DIE! 5 vs 900??? Seriously??? UGH!

"The article also says..."

You know, what a journalist has to say really doesn't concern me much since I'm already aware of the many many lies and ignorant statements they make. I'm sorry that you put so much emphasis on opinion pieces. Since you like them so much, I'll go dig up what Dr. Tenpenny had to say about this DEADLY outbreak (insert eye roll).

"but I certainly hope this didn't happen with your prior knowledge, otherwise, I'd think you're off your rocker for sure!"

I have no idea what that statement means. Prior knowledge? You mean the prior knowledge that since my brother was brain damaged by the Pertussis portion of the vaccine (per doctors) that I had the *Prior Knowledge* to know better than to vaccinate my kids with the potentially deadly vaccine? Or, by your accounts, and since VAERS does list thousands of deaths (representing less than 10% of reality) which occurred right after the vaccine - THE DEADLY VACCINE? Is that the way I should word that Gina?

but if it's publicized more, I'm betting more people will.

If the FAILURE of the vaccine was publicized *at all* then we would have a few less ignorant people in the world.

Sheeple on!

"I guess if a disease must kill all people who contract it to be deadly in your terms, you don't think heart disease or cancer are deadly. Or AIDS, or hepatitis."

I know that the treatments can be!
