Vaccines Cause Autism

The parents of 12-year-old Michelle Cedillo asked a federal court Monday to find that their child's autism was caused by common childhood vaccines, a precedent-setting case that could pave the way for thousands of autistic children to receive compensation from a government fund set up to help people injured by the shots.

The problem with this case is its focus on thimerosol, a mercury-based preservative, as the culprit in the shots. The great drug companies who bring us so many wonderful patent medicines in an effort to make tons of money for their stockholders, while sometimes actually affording you and me the benefits of advances in pain relief, disease, etc--these great drug companies only make those wonderful advances by accident along the way to fattening the bottom line. And forget what you read in the MSM about vaccines not being a cash cow--there's nothin but gold in them thar shots!

The culprit is not mercury, or at least not entirely--it's the mechanism of how a vaccine works that underlies its sinister outward affects. Do you think only the severely bruised, retarded, dislexic, autistic, or dead by SIDS, children are affected by the awful toxins contained in vaccines? We ALL are. Some of us have allergies, or ADD, or asthmoa, or type II diabetes as children: any of us who have ever received a shot in order to "immunize" our system against a future potential germ onslaught--we have been given that germ in some form in order to have our bodies mimic a counterattack as if we really got that disease.

The smart researchers, the ones who are being clobbered by the drug-company powers-that-be as providing specious studies that are not provable--these pioneering researchers like Dr. Andrew Wakefield and others, have found the answer to the vaccine/autism connection. It lies in the gut, the secondary immune system, and its failure to absorb nutrients needed for brain development, after the invasion of toxins from vaccines.

The good news is that this case will bring to the forefront the objection of so many parents around the world who know, better than any drug manufacturer or federal agency, how their children changed after getting a shot--how obvious the affect of the shot was, and in so many unfortuante cases, how terible the resulting debilitation became. It's about time they all had their day in court, regardless of the outcome--because the truth has no opposite, and knowledge and information are power.

Fail or not in court, the advocates for the vaccine/autism connection in this case have already won. The message to parents is clear and they have the right to choose for their children.

American Jews & Arabs Agree on Everything

When Americans are left alone to make their minds up on issues, and they don't refer to actual facts or experts, it's amazing how wrong are their "assumptions." Of course we all know the aphorism about "ass u me" assumption assumings--but we forget about the truth when it's more convenient to have a biased ill-informed opinion.

Americans don't like immigrants on the whole--this is an irrational bigotry based on unfocused fear of the unknown. In real life, immigrants help American society.

Many people have "learned" a mistaken "fact" about African Americans--that they tend to have hypertension in higher numbers than the general population because of a special gene that got favoritism through the passage of blacks taken from Africa to be slaves in the New World 400 years ago. The Africans who survived the journey had a "special gene" that helped them retain fluid better, which also causes hypertension in their descendants to this day.

This "special gene" theory has been debunked thoroughly over and over, but when it is "convenient" to keep repeating it, in order to avoid the real problem of dealing with hypertension due to black-skinned people having to live daily through the tirade of fear of racial hatred from the white majority around them them, then the theory lives on even in well-educated smart people.

Now let's take recent polls about American Jews and American Palestinians. When each group was asked if they thought the other group agreed with them on certain issues, they both "assumed" that the other group did not agree.

Both communities strongly support the statement “Israelis have a right to live in a secure and independent state of their own” (98 percent of American Jews and 88 percent of Arab Americans); and the statement “Palestinians have the right to live in a secure and independent state of their own” (90 percent of American Jews, 96 percent of Arab Americans). But they don’t think that about each other. Only 34 percent of American Jews believe that Arab Americans support the Israeli right noted above, while a significantly higher 60 percent of Arab Americans believe American Jews support the Palestinian right.

Next time, look it up before you just react. Sometimes the truth is harder to believe than what we think.

Meanwhile, here's a bumper sticker for your xenophobic friends:
