Quoted from Davidus56:

How about this compromise? People who refuse immunizations, fine. But that person should sign a legal, enforceable contract agreeing to stay home if they contract the disease. They should agree not to go out in public and subject others to their ‘infectivity’. And most importantly, they and their family should accept full responsibility for their decision. That means not going to the hospital if they take a turn for the worse. Not using up medical resources to treat a disease that they should not have gotten in the first place had they acted responsibly.
If they die, that was their decision. They should die at home, not at some hospital, hooked up to a ventilator and life support. Not after accruing hundreds of thousands of dollars in hospital bills that I, as a taxpayer, have to pay for.
Seems fair enough. Man up and take responsibility for your actions.

Or how about this one? Every person who participates in the profit of vaccination is required to sign a document agreeing they are personally and severally liable for any injury it causes.

Quoted from o-din:

don't plan on getting the flu this year so I feel the shot or any other man made chemical remedy is toxins I don't need in my body.

You could have it and be contagious right now. You don’t have to have symptoms.

I don’t plan on crashing my car so I don’t need a seatbelt. I will also somehow prevent everybody else from crashing in to me.

This is all faulty logic. Free Country so carry on.

#2353 10 months ago
Quoted from Shapiru:

My wife works for the WHO and I listen to her when she tells me to get the seasonal flu shot.
She is so adamant about it that we even give one to our 3 cats as she has samples.
I get 2 each season just to be sure I get a healthy dose. Highly recommended.

Another bear in this saloon?

luckily it won’t be very long until there isn’t a choice

Lol...good luck with that!

#2355 10 months ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

Same could be said for someone who took the shot. Apparently it works on one strain, but not another.

I'm proactive and do what it takes to stay healthy and fight off germs as they come my way. I'll take that over someone who doesn't and then goes out in public with a false sense of security because they got the shot.

I see it all the time "I got the shot but got sick anyway" "Well gee, thanks for sharing that with me"

#2356 10 months ago
Quoted from cosmokramer:

Lol...good luck with that!

I should’ve been more clear.
I was referring more to unvaccinated children in public schools, Im not implying the govt will be holding people down giving them shots, loopholes in the laws are being closed etc

#2357 10 months ago
Quoted from o-din:

Same could be said for someone who took the shot. Apparently it works on one strain, but not another.

Not my point. You don’t “plan” on getting the flu. You could have it and be contagious as we speak. You can plan all you want.

In fact, I am willing to bet, knowing the Universe as I do, you do have the flu! And everybody stopping by for their 2” flipper fix is being exposed! You’re like Typhoid Mary!

Quoted from SadSack:

Sure. Set up a fund to cover the extremely rare vaccine related complications. Although, how often can you know for certain that a complication occurred because of the vaccine. You can speculate but cause/effect is tough to prove.

Would the antivaxxers be willing to suck it up and stay at home no matter how sick they become? I think not.

#2359 10 months ago
Quoted from Jaybird815:

unvaccinated children in public schools

Many, if not all major metro school districts require proof of shots to enroll already.

Yes but there’s the religious exemptions loop hole, there’s still a lot of unvaccinated kids at all public schools

#2361 10 months ago

True story-

A guy comes into my work.

"How are you doing sir?"

"Not too good. I'm sick and took the day off from work but thought it would be a good day to get my smog test"

"Yeah, you don't look so good. Thanks for sharing that with me"

"Don't worry, I got a flu shot last week so I'm not contagious"

Who's the dummy now?

Wow....I dont even know what to say.

#2363 10 months ago

Anyone paying attention knows the government has been using chemtrails to insert flu shot into the generically modified corn crop. Between that and the fluoride we are pretty much screwed guys.

Quoted from RTR:

You sure that is generically modified? I thought they only used brand name modified corn crops.

Quoted from Davidus56:...

Now you have revealed you support imprisoning me. I'd much rather that anyone demonstrating symptoms "stay at home" until they don't. But that wouldn't be a convenient magic pill in a syringe now, would it?

It's widely known that Monsanto is a CIA cover, open your eyes bro.

I support imprisoning you!?! Where did that come from? Magical thinking I guess.

You are joking, right?

#2370 10 months ago
Quoted from Davidus56:

You said if I get sick, I have to stay home and can't seek treatment. Why is this for me, but not others who took the ineffective shot? Do your feelings and beliefs reduce transmission?

#2371 10 months ago

The bottom line here is that no one is changing anyone else’s minds on the subject, so now back to figuring out this mfin check fuses f114 and f115 on my sttng! Play on brothers!

I think this entire thread highlights the risk of medical tyranny in a democracy. 2 wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.

Where is the tyranny exactly? Is it people making fun of you for believing in conspiracy theories and your complete failure to understand how vaccination works (despite having apparently read all of the product inserts)? Seems more like a free exchange of ideas to me.

#2375 10 months ago

It comforts me to know that a person like this has more right to be out in public than one who did not get a shot.

Once you have the flu it doesn’t matter if you got vaccinated, you should still stay home. Any doc will tell you that.

I can tell that you are probably one of those 'round earth' 'moon lander' types that believe everything the New Templars tell you. WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!!

#2378 10 months ago
Quoted from fosaisu:

Sure, but you could still be contagious before symptoms show up.

So what gives a person who got a shot any more right to be out in public than a healthy person who does not?

Think influenza is bad, just wait until Ebola finds its way out of Africa and into an industrialized society.

A few more and RTR will have caught his limit.

#2383 10 months ago

I asked my friend that came over last night if he gets a flu shot. He said no way!

I then asked how come neither of us ever seem to get sick?

He said probably because we don't get the shot. lol.

Nah it's fine. I purposefully lick door handles to keep my immune system in tip top shape. Bring that weak shit on.

I deal with the sickly got a flu shot public day after day to keep my immunity to the disease up.

Like reading a textbook on how to conduct a scientific experiment. Perfect, as always.

It was good for a laugh anyway.

Like those that get the shot and believe there is no chance they can pass the flu onto someone else.

I lick strippers. Way more effective and fun.

Nah, R0 (R nought) value for Ebola is less than 2. Now measles on the other hand. It has an R0 of 18!

Yup, just have to floss the crabs out afterwards. A lot of people forget that step.

#2393 10 months ago

Now you want to talk lethality... Anthrax, prion diseases (like Kuru) and Naeglaria are much deadlier than Ebola.

Ever notice the pro vaxxers seem to think alike? Illuminati mind control serum!!!! Stay away!

Don’t forget the Marburg virus. I only mentioned Ebola because it is a mess right now in Africa and people there are spreading lots of misinformation about it.

If nature does not find a way to balance things out here on earth, humans will most likely go down in history as the first species to be responsible for a mass extinction on this planet.

#2397 10 months ago

Between overpopulation and scientists meddling with things in their laboratories, it will most likely be their own.

Yes, we are all members of the Illuminati AND the CIA!
