    Roses are red, violets are blue...vaccinations work. If it against your beliefs, you can home school!

    I think much of the controversy with vaccines is due to lack of education. Some people believe that pharmaceutical companies create these vaccines. They believe these vaccines make people sick to keep the pharmaceutical business growing.
    Most of us don't have that perception. But that seems like the worst of the worst reasons to dislike vaccines. I think if we could find a way to calm these peoples fears, we would have calmed the majority of peoples fears.

    Un-Vaccinated kids come from a variety of sources.

    1) Their parents cant get their **** together to keep them vaccinated, mostly because they are poor or just bad parents. This is by far the largest group. We lose sight of this in the entire antivax controversy. We should basically force these kids to get vaccinated, and make it much, much easier and cheaper to get vaccines.

    2) Religious exemptions. Very small group. Seems reasonable to OK it, but I would require onerous paperwork to discourage people in group #1 to claim they are Christian Scientists or something.

    3) Medical exemptions. These kids are fine if everyone else is vaccinated. Small group. Let them attend school.

    4) Anti vaxxers who are just plain stupid, or like to watch Dr. Oz and Jenny McCarthy and read Joseph Mercola. Vaccine or homeschool. And a mandatory visit from DCFS to check if they are sane enough to raise children.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Group #1, indeed all of this, is easy enough to handle, any kid who shows up the first day of school without a vaccination record or a medical exemption gets a needle in their arm. No exceptions.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I don't think you can sue yourself. So again, who should I sue first?

    Depends on which vaccines. The government shouldn't have the ability to force all vaccines across the board, just specific ones... like the old school ones.

    Though, I think there is some muddiness to be found in the matter of the government forcing medical procedures. That most people agree with the law doesn't change the fact.

    Nice list. I think that about covers it.

    Yep. But the Conservatives whine about the cost, so that's out.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
