Thank you, Amy. I've also had a very hard time figuring out how to confront this issue. It isRead More difficult when it becomes apparent that it just isn't nonsense anymore, it's dangerous nonsense. People will literally die if the anti-vaxx crowd is successful at convincing people not to vaccinate their kids. Potentially a lot of people. When you combine that with the stupidity, outright lies and paranoia displayed by celebrity spokes-people like Jenny McCarthy it becomes really hard to maintain ones composure (oops, I just lost mine). I suppose it's best to treat everyone as one would treat a good friend who is skeptical of modern medicine and scared for their children. As far as the black helicopter people go, I'm not sure what can be done to convince them, since they invariably believe that any data not conforming to their beliefs must the due to a conspiracy of some kind. I've known a lot of publicly funded scientists over the years, and the idea that they could all somehow be conspiring to harm public health in order to enrich corporations is ludicrous and insulting. Part of the problem is that as a result of reasonable skepticism of expert opinion, many people have decided that there is no such thing. Or, even worse, they pick people who have zero expertise but who are good at manipulating their fears. So now we have a huge population of scientifically illiterate people who no longer trust doctors, but are willing to put all their faith in internet scam artists like the "Health Ranger". This can't end well.

Costco makes millions off of supplements. Flip through their monthly magazine. Every other page isRead More some supplement for which people have no need. Not only are we a nation of consumers, we are a nation of gullible consumers.

I received my case of measels in 1967 in the ARMY at Fort Sill, Oaklahoma. When they startedRead More offering for my children I chose the imunization for them and now Public Schools Require them in California. Home Schooling by anti-vaxx parents will be the first ones to catch the bugs from "out of state" or "out of country" (Like UC Berkley with 14,000 of them) anti-vaxx or could not get the Vaxx.. TB is on the rise from the "out of county" rich kids at our colleges also. TB was eradicated in the U.S. 30 years ago but now it is back and we no longer give imunizations for it.

$183K? Valero made at least ten times that in profit during the violation period. This simply looksRead More like the BAAQMD needed some extra funding and tapped an easy source. $100 tickets from fireplace violators just take too long to add up!

"Documents for your consideration are: 1) November 2013 Proposed Rate Increases 2) NovemberRead More 2013 Wastewater Rate Study 3) Wastewater 2013 Design Report – Final Draft." Hahahaha. Those are the city's documents. What do you expect to learn from these documents, the truth? Your council and the city’s consultants want YOUR MONEY for a $30 million boondoggle project. They wanted your money in 2006 for another wasteful project. Remember?? It was under the “leadership” of Warren Salmons, Janice Beaman and Mary Ann Courville, the signers of this letter, who wanted to spend $40 million for a “worthless” “band-aid” project. It was the Dixon Chapter of the Solano County Taxpayers Association that saved the day. Who do you really trust????? SEND IN YOUR PROTEST AND STOP THIS NONSENSE.
