Measles Vaccinations? A "Professional" Speaks Out!

"Adolf Hitler wasn't vaccinated against Measles, either!" - Mike Rogers

"See? I told you Ebola was mutating! It has now mutated into a measles epidemic on the nightly news!" - That's by me too!

This measles vaccination nonsense is absurd.

It's not a question of public health. This is a question of property rights; do you own your own body?

At my house, we do not give our child a flu shot every year: we gathered information and made a judgement on cost and effectiveness vs. risk performance. We got him flu shots before, but these last 4 or 5 years, we opted out.

Unfortunately, our kid came down with the flu this year (his second time in eleven years). 

The children of my best friend, Taro, also got the flu this year. The difference? We didn't get a flu shot for our son. My friend Taro had all his kids get the flu shot. Twice. They all did; and they had both flu immunizations; yet they still got the flu.

My son got the flu this year. He didn't get an immunization. My friend's kids all did. They all got the flu also... And my friend was out several hundred bucks for a flu vaccine that didn't work.

If we allow the government to force people to take immunizations, then no one can complain when the government deems that you are too fat and then they can decide ridiculous things like you are no longer allowed to buy large Cokes. Or that your medical condition is so bad (in their judgement) that you need to be put into an institution against your will. Or that your folks (you included) are too old and inept to take care of yourselves so you need to be put into an old folk's hospital or strapped to a bed 24/7. Or that your smoking or drinking habit is too dangerous for other people so you must stop... Or you need to wear seat belts...

There's no end to it, folks.

Most of you folks reading this are mostly probably too young to remember, but for those of us born in the 50s, there was no fear of the measles or the mumps or chicken pox.

Nope. It was something that we all got. No big deal.

I lived in a family with three brothers and when one got it, the others soon followed. I don't remember Chicken Pox being anything but very itchy, the measles were absolutely nothing, but the mumps hurt a little bit.

Still, no big deal.

In fact, I looked forward to getting sick and missing a few days of school: JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER KIDS DID!

Today's media makes these formerly common childhood ailments sound like Small Pox or Polio or the Bubonic Plague...

Seriously. I remember clearly the Measles, mumps and Chicken Pox because we all three got it roughly the same time. No worry. Just stay in bed.

Watch this video to see what people used to think about Measles, before those days when Big Pharma started marketing vaccines. (Thanks to Lew Rockwell!

The Brady Bunch (Ugh!) is the best.... Really. They even say that getting those three diseases is the best way to skip out of school....

Forced immunizations are not about controlling diseases, but about controlling you.

NOTE: Oh, the title of this article: "Measles Vaccinations? A Professional Speaks Out!" Before someone complains about who the professional is, it's me. I've worked in the mass media for over 30 years; this mass media sensationalism? I am a professional and an expert at mass media sensationalism; oh, and I am a "professional" with a big mouth.

ADDENDUM: Great article over at Zerohedge today: Guest Post: How Vaccine Hysteria Could Spark A Totalitarian Nightmare


1. The voices shrieking to forcibly vaccinate people are the same voices shrieking to support a woman’s right to choose abortion under Roe v. Wade. If a woman’s body is sacrosanct, if she has the right to choose to deliver a child or not, if she has total authority over her body, how can she not have the right to accept or refuse a vaccination?

2. Medical ethics are clear: No one should be forced to undergo a medical treatment without informed consent and without their agreement to the treatment. We condemn the forced sterilization of the ’20s and ’30s, the Tuskegee medical experiments infecting black inmates and the Nazi medicine that included involuntary “Euthanasia,” experimentation and sterilization. How can we force vaccination without consent? Vaccination is a medical treatment with risks including death. It is totally antithetical to all ethics in medicine to mandate that risk to others.

3. Science is never “concluded.” Mr. Obama and other ideologues may think the truth is finalized (“The science is indisputable”), but the reality is our understanding of disease and treatment are constantly being updated. Just like Newton’s mechanical paradigm of the universe was supplanted by Einsteinian physics, and physicists today modify that view, medical “truth” is not the truth for long. In an attempt to quantify change in medicine, years ago a cardiology journal discussed “The Half-life of Truth.” cardiologists looked back in their journal at 20-year-old articles to see how much of what was believed then was still believed to be true. The answer? 50 percent. So in cardiology, at least – and in all of medicine to greater or lesser degree – only half of what we believe now will still be true in 20 or so years. The last word on vaccination is not in. It hasn’t even begun to be written.

4. If you believe absolutely in the benefit and protective value of vaccination, why does it matter what others do? Or don’t do? If you believe you need vaccination to be healthy and protected, then by all means vaccinate your child and yourself. Why should you even be concerned what your neighbor chooses to do for his child – if vaccination works? The idea of herd immunity is still based on the idea that in individual cases vaccines actually are protective.

5. If you think the government has the right to forcibly vaccinate people – for the good of society – what is to prevent them from forcibly sterilizing people, or forcibly euthanizing people, or forcibly implanting a tracking device – for the good of society? You make think those examples are extreme (although two-thirds have happened), but the principle is the same. You are allowing government to have ultimate authority over your body.

Because 1) Mike is not living in the United States and 2) he doesn't watch TV in the home, he probably does not know about all the prescription drug adds on TV. Terry Bradshaw of NFL fame pushes a vaccine against Shingles. "1 in 4 people who got chickenpox will get Shingles" goes the ad. Only the US & New Zealand allow prescription drugs to be advertised on TV.
