A crazy little thing called crud

Here comes one Rand Paul, who is quite a big deal. Depending on which poll you choose he’s either the early Republican presidential frontrunner or a top tier candidate. So it really should be of some interest to us when he gets around to speaking his considerable mind. After all he could become, with some luck, and ‘bad’ happens to count for some, the next Most Powerful Man On The Planet.

And so I had my (children’s vaccines) staggered over several months. I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines. I’m not arguing vaccines are a bad idea. I think they are a good thing, but I think the parent should have some input. The state doesn’t own your children.

As these events, where one child after another is struck down by something like infectious retardation after getting a shot, did neither fairly nor remotely happen this is a troubling statement. The senator remains somehow unaware of all the children who ended up getting the not-measles after receiving proper vaccinations. Apparently Rand Paul’s life is either being played out inside a horror film or he is sadly himself suffering a profound mental disorder. Whatever the case Rand would not likely make a good president. Given the chance, and enough votes, he could, in some understandable but ultimately misguided attempt to thwart the Sheepshead Zombies, blow up our world. Count me out.

Meantime do take note:

Melanie’s Marvelous Measles is available on Amazon, and sets out to persuade 4-10-year-old children that the measles is actually pretty fun, has no serious possible side-effects, and is something kids should look forward to getting.

Fun fact. Bubonic Plague is Your Pal!

The book includes such inspired medical advice as:

· measles is easily avoided by drinking melon juice
· vaccines weaken the human immune system,
· getting measles strengthens it (as does melon juice).

And just how many Republicans think that vaccines lead to autism? Twenty-six percent of their half of America, meaning many millions. But more importantly, what in the world does Glenn Beck think?

“Is it possible we have been lied to about the measles, this outbreak, and that we are now being told all kinds of things for one purpose, for the herd mentality to get us all to grab out children and obey the government?,” Beck asks…

Meanwhile, Beck, who claims to be “pro-family” and “pro-life,” last year stood up and applauded parents who refused to vaccinate their kids.

And earlier this week, Beck pointed to the thoroughly debunked claim of a link between vaccines and autism, and insisted anti-vaxxers – parents who refuse to vaccinate their children – are being persecuted, like the Catholic Church persecuted Galileo.

Funny that. Why it is we still remember this science-fellow is no mystery, for reasons that currently (and will likely eternally) elude these cruds. Namely that in his battle with the August and Magisterial Church, it was Galileo who proved to be the sane one. You see the hitch.
