Vaccines – especially vaccines for polio, small pox, and measles – have saved countless lives since their introduction. Opting out of vaccines, in many case, threatens public health and increasingly – global health.
Are they 100% effective? Are they 100% safe? Nope. Most are in the 99% effective and safe range.
Can you look both ways before crossing a street in a car, on foot or a bike and still get hit? Yes but the chances are really, really small. So, would you advise people not to look or not to cross the street?
During the 1950s – before the introduction of the measles vaccine – in the United States alone the disease infected roughly 4 million, hospitalized nearly 50,000, and contributed to the deaths of several hundred every year.
Lower vaccine uptake, and increases in international travel, have increased opportunities for the measles virus to spread – even to areas that had previously all but eliminated it.
Personally, I think the idea of US having bases in Afghanistan from now into eternity is a really bad idea but tell me again who are our allies supposed to be? Maybe this should be another wake up call to what countries think they have long term interest in not letting Afghanistan control its own future?
The United States’ decision to set up six permanent military bases in Afghanistan will be the focus of talks when the presidents of Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan meet in Tehran on June 25, an official told The Express Tribune on Friday.
In my state of mind, the birthers now led by wanna-be-still-famous Trump seem to be from some alien place where logic is absent and denial has replaced reality – all perfect for a new Donald show! But read this article if you need further proof.
For the birthers, the translation of “natural born citizen'” is simply “those born inside the United States”. To them, anyone born outside the United States is ineligible for the presidency. They are wrong.
The Naturalisation Act of 1790 provided that “the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens.”
One in four samples bought in supermarkets contained meat with bacteria resistant to at least three drugs against staph infections. If you gotta eat meat – eat organic or cook it until it resembles cardboard…

They then turned around and drove away.
Palin wore a Star of David, the symbol of Judaism, around her neck, prayed close to the wall and lodged a written prayer in a crevice, according to tradition.
Palin told reporters: ” It’s overwhelming to be able to see and touch the cornerstone of our faith. I’m so thankful to be able to be here and I’m thankful to know the Israel-American connection will grow and strengthen as the peace negotiations continue.”
Those who want to enslave you, reassert elitism, and exert complete sway over America will never give up. The only way to keep this nation free and democratic is to organize to vote for freedom and democracy. If you have “recall” rights in your state – exercise then now and get ready for next election. Those who sat out the 2010 races, do so again and you may not have another chance to be free and equal again.
After the Civil War, the United States seemed poised to grant equal rights to African-Americans. But the Supreme Court’s rulings in the late 19th century kept African-Americans segregated for decades, says constitutional scholar Lawrence Goldstone.
This man’s historical and cultural ignorance is perhaps equaled by his not understanding how hate and fear colors all his life. His ignorance will support more years of violence and hate against those who settled this land before Europeans came and well most know the history of dishonor against Native Americans. The American Family Association seems to be un-American, anti-family and a closed society for people filled with fear and hate.
Bryan Fischer: Native Americans morally disqualified themselves from the land
