Why Political Oscar Speeches Stink

No doubt all of that liberal blathering is why Hotfix reported: "Whether it was lack of interest in the nominated films, lack of interest in host Neil Patrick Harris or a third thing that could cause disinterest, overnight ratings for the 2015 Academy Awards were down double-digits from last year's telecast in most measures." Although I have enough interest in the results to read about them the next day to see what movies might be worthy of putting (or not putting) in my Netflix queue, I have no interest in hearing long, dragged-out "thank you" speeches whether they are political or not. Nor do I have any interest in seeing a man dancing around on the stage in his underwear in his desperate appeal for attention.

Our President is so clueless that he recently stated during a FOX News interview that "climate change" is a much greater danger to us than Islamic terrorism or Iran's threat to wipe Israel off the map. Could this ONLY have come from the mouth of a Muslim?

To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate?

Tin Can Joey you obviously did not read what I wrote or you wouldn't have written what you did. I commented about those who, through no neglect of their own, may have become immune-compromised. They are the ones who are put at risk by bone-headed people who refuse to vaccinate. There are medical treatments that suppress people's immunities even though they may have received the full array of vaccines. Who knows? I may someday may need one of those medical treatments and would not want to be exposed to diseases for which we have effective preventive vaccines.

The only reason that polio is not the boogeyman disease that it was when I was a child, killing hundreds of people a day and crippling even more, has been because of the relentless polio vaccine programs. That is no reason to become complacent today. We also don't have sole ownership of public schools, Disneyland, sports stadiums or shopping malls where those who are carrying preventable, contagious diseases can infect others. Therefore the comparison with cars on public roads is certainly valid. I served in the military for six years, during the Vietnam war, when mandatory conscription left young men with the choice of joining or being drafted. We were immunized against seemingly every preventable disease imaginable. Delayed reactions to the yellow fever vaccine dropped many of us to our knees in pain. Nonetheless, whatever reactions we had to the vaccines were far better than becoming infected with the prevalent diseases in southeast Asia. Just as I have a right to expect that drivers on our public roads to be licensed, competent, alert and sober, I should also have the right to not be exposed in public places to preventable diseases because non-vaccinators are subscribing to junk science and are putting everyone in their surroundings who may be immune-compromised at risk.

Unfortunately, sometimes we need laws to protect people and the public from their own stupidity. That's why there are laws against driving on public roads and highways while intoxicated or texting with a smartphone.

The "you own your own body" argument is hogwash if actions through that "ownership" endanger others. A good example of that is that most of us own our own cars, but we cannot legally intoxicate our own bodies and then take those cars on public roads, which will endanger others. Vaccines, antibiotics and hospital child births have been the three major reasons that average lifespans in the USA have nearly doubled during the past 100 years. Virtually all of the rhetoric about vaccines being dangerous or causing autism has been discredited. RESPONSIBLE parents don't endanger their children and the public by practicing junk science and avoiding life-saving vaccines and appropriate medical attention. Before Rotary International and the World Health Organization began its worldwide polio vaccination program about five hundred people EVERY SINGLE DAY were dying from polio. Thanks to those heroic efforts this past calendar year, just a few hundred people were infected with polio, mostly in Muslim countries where imams falsely preached against the vaccinations and terrorists murdered health volunteers who were trying to immunize the children.
Driving while drunk is also illegal for the purpose of "protecting the hive." Living in and mingling with a civilized society requires responsible behavior. Leaving children unvaccinated is irresponsible and constitutes a form of childe abuse.
During the past 100 years the average lifespan of an American has nearly doubled. The three main reasons for such dramatic increases are: 1. Vaccines; 2. Antibiotics; and 3. In-Hospital Births. Other modern medical practices also contribute but the three reasons above are the most significant. As a child just about every classroom I attended had at least one child whose mother had died during childbirth and at least one child who had been crippled by polio. Somehow, I managed to survive scarlet fever, rheumatic fever, whooping cough, strep throat, chicken pox, measles and mumps. Without antibiotics, I would have died from one of those diseases and with vaccines, I might not have suffered from any of them. Before the polio vaccine was developed about 500 people throughout the world died from it EVERY SINGLE DAY. This past year, thanks to the vaccine, there were only 358 cases of polio worldwide, mostly in Muslim countries where imams preached against vaccinating children and health workers were being murdered. The ignorance is FAILURE to vaccinate.
Your assertion that vaccines come from aborted babies is a myth.
Michael Moore and Seth Rogen aren't worth the "breath" that comes from my anus.
