    Default Anti-vaxxers are stupid people

    I was reading recently about people who are opposed to the normal childhood vaccines.
    The article mentioned that anti-vaxxers come from all walks of life - there was even a GP who was anti-vaccine - this was given as an example of an intelligent person.
    Well, that is wrong.
    Every single anti-vaxxer is stupid.
    Without exception.
    They need to be bluntly told that.
    Perhaps any children in their care should be removed.
    I would like to see the media climb into the anti-vaxxers and expose their stupidity.
    Sadly, some reporters aren't quite bright enough to recognise stupid people.

    People have valid concerned about side effects.
    They get dismissed as idiots - big business - and health care is a very big business - don't like awkward questions.
    Not as clear cut a problem as you propose.
    The three most harmful addictions are heroin, carbohydrates and a monthly salary - Fred Wilson.

    I'm afraid it is.
    The science is unequivocal on the side of vaccines.

    Would you please clarify, comrade Bob?

    1) Do you want to deny the anti-vaccination people freedom of choice?

    2) Do you want to deny the anti-vaccination people the right to free speech?

    3) Do you want both (1) and (2)?

    I would like them to vaccinate.
    If they refuse then I'd like them to isolate themselves from everyone else.

    I allow them free speech, just like I'm allowed free speech.

    Not sure if I've answered as you were hoping.

    I think there is a bit of truth on both sides. The more I research modern pharmaceuticals the more I am convinced they donít know what they are doing and it is all about money. Yes, vaccines stop many deaths, and vaccinating children prevents many deaths, deformities and wasted time, but on the other hand some of the ingredients may still cause brain damage to some infants if they have certain DNA defects that are unable to detox poisons as well as most people can.

    We also do not know what the difference may be to the human gene pool in preventing people naturally catching these diseases (which may kill some of us) and artificially immunising people. These vaccines have only been around a short time in the history of humans so time will tell what the effect is on the population. Things are never as black and white as they seem.

    You are wrong.
    It's science on one side and stupidity on the other.

    Default Just Who Is It That's Stupid?

    Is it not just a matter of acceptable risk? Perhaps considered along with a certain set of circumstances?

    If anything is stupid, it's the woodenheads and numpties who want to ban unvaccinated children from daycare centres and schools, etc.

    Do they have no faith in the efficacy of the vaccine that all the other kids have had?

    It seems not.

    Now that is a stupid statement.
    Unvaccinated people can pass on measles to those who cannot be vaccinated which can result in death.
    Why would you think that is an ok situation?

    I don't. And I did not refer to such a situation.

    You have now introduced some odd group referred to as: "those who cannot be vaccinated."

    Who are they? Please explain. Also, why / how they would by-pass the bans I referred to.

    The bans (I linked to) relate to un-vaccinated children attending groups comprised of all vaccinated children.

    Obviously those who implement such bans have no faith in the efficacy of the vaccine that all the other kids have had.

    Is that not stupid?
