    I would not want to disturb what ever fantasies help you sleep at night.

    Why don't you research before you spew?

    Pew Research:

    In 2015, the Pew Research Center conducted a survey of 2 thousand adults which concluded about 12 percent of liberals and 10 percent of conservatives believed that childhood vaccines are unsafe.

    You're right, but things have changed, as they always do.

    My daughter was born in 1981, and we had her and her brother both vaccinated. Even then it was fairly simply and straightforward, MMR and just a very few other vaccines, pretty much the same as I received in 1948 and later.

    Now, as she contemplates getting her 1 and 3 year old children vaccinated, the number of vaccines they want is in the dozens.

    There is no question that some genetic types do have bad reactions to the vaccines. It's easy to understand why some young parents forego the vaccines.

    I'm for vaccines all the way, but perhaps we've gone a bit too far.

    Yes.

    One wouldn’t want to use *too much* of an extremely safe and very effective modality.


    Let those lesser diseases run rampant! It’s good to teach the kids what suffering means!
    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.

    Here is a full list. It's a PDF below the bolded list. I would have posted it but the formatting would probably make it unreadable:

    vaccines given to children - Google Search

    They seem to all be diseases we're all familiar with. Personally, I think it's partly the mother's not being about to look beyond their baby being stuck with needles.

    Now with all the third world pouring in, we should thank our lucky stars these are available. We got Typhis in LA now and we have no vaccine, but it is treatable. But we will possibly lose some children and infants along the way.

    https://www.precisionvaccinations.co...political-bias
    Back in the 1980s a rather cursory study (cone on behalf of the Student Christian Movement) showed that approximately 10% of almost any "non-specialized population" (which means - essentially - a random grouping of non-specialists) would believe almost anything as long as it was not completely in opposition to currently observable fact. As far as I know that study is not available on line.

    If that is (more or less) the case, then I wouldn't get upset about 10 or 12 percent of any particular group of non-specialists believing in anything in particular and I wouldn't ascribe any significance to a 2% (mid-point) difference between two groups when the margin of error was +/-3.5%.

    If you say "Between 9.5% and 14.5% of (self-identified) 'liberals' and between 7.5% and 12.5% of (self-identified) 'conservatives' believe X." then you can see that there is an overlap of between 9.5% and 12.5% where the actual numbers (assuming that one could actually get responses from 100% of both sub-sets) and it could well be that the 'liberal' number might turn out to be 9.5% while the 'conservative' number might well turn out to be 12.5%.

    That, of course would be the complete reverse of the positions as reported by "mid-point" numbers.
