    A shocking 49 measles cases have been reported in California to date in 2014, up from only four at this same time last year.
    The outbreak is reigniting public health concerns over the anti-vaccination movement; while releasing its data at the end of March, the California Department of Public Health urged residents to consider the startling outbreak’s implications.

    This is one of the few areas where the govt cannot interfere with parent rights strongly enough: since we can't force parents to vaccinate, we should isolate the kids and parents: no vaccination, no public schools. no access to public facilities (eg. mass transit); no proof of vaccinations, no dependent or head of household tax deductions. if the kids die from measles or measles-related illnesses, manslaughter charges doctors willing to treat without vaccinating.

    This disease was all but exterminated: kids are not supposed to be catching this disease in the US anymore.

    I see this as a good thing, the more stupid people's children die of measles, the less new stupid people we have around. #CullTheHerd

    ebola in west afica. just wait until mr. mbutu gets on a jet to NYC.

    all it takes is one sick guy and an airport.

    if we could muzzle the idiots who keep advocating against vaccines in the face of increased incidence of otherwise eradicated diseases, but these are the same assholes who run around telling people their kids illnesses are not the result of their refusing vaccinations.

    the current belief is that exposure to measles in the US is now coming from visitors to the US from countries where it is still prevalent. we need a federal law mandating vaccinations, or outrageously severe sanctions for not vaccinating.

    yeah i've been on that boat for decades. i rarely listen to him but michael savage would rant about the diseases coming here. whenever you see some 3rd world curse showing up, you'll find some whiny douchebags screaming that sick people have a right to sneak into this country too.

    it's insanity.

    we can't stop sick people from traveling so we have to sanction our own people for putting the rest of our kids at risk. not vaccinating should be a near-criminal offense.

    the flu is one of those we can't yet eradicate, and Calif is the main way new strains get into the country (too bad i can't blame Dave for this) because it is closest to the Pacific Rim.

    What I don't understand about these outbreaks is - if you've been immunized as a child - that should mean you can't get it, right? :dontknow: So is it only non-immunized people who are catching measles?

    I was talking to my mom this morning and she was telling me that tons of people were bribing folks at Ellis Island when she came here in the sixties.

    unvaccinated kids,and kids too young to be vaccinated.

    if someone from outside the country brings the disease in, but everyone is vaccinated, then the disease stays with that person and whatever jumps off him dies. if some are not vaccinated, and they get infected suddenly we have breeding populations of the bug and it is now growing within the country giving it the opportunity to mutate. the next step from that is the zombie apocalypse!!

    one of my aunts had polio. i dont remember what she looks like but i remember her leg braces, crutches and her slowly climbing up the stairs to her sister's apt for the holidays.


    these diseases are horrific: nobody should have to suffer any of them.
