Current Vaccine Hysteria and Unintended Consequences…

7 February 2015

0 Comments

Let’s talk about the serious unintended consequence of the current vaccine hysteria…one that we all, regardless of our views about vaccines, should be able to not only understand, but one that we should all be greatly concerned about: our freedom. No, I’m not placing on the same level as ISIL extremists or other groups that […]

The Non-Vaccinated: Let’s Round Them All Up…

6 February 2015

2 Comments

In the current hysteria, there’s been a growing number of people calling for more substantial quarantining–not of those infected with measles, but those unvaccinated, because they pose such a danger to the general population. Let’s take it a tiny step further: let’s round them all up. Let’s herd them all together and sequester them elsewhere. […]

Vaccines and Justice…

2 February 2015

1 Comment

One of the ideas some have put out publicly, and that I touched on in the previous post (Vaccinations, Hysteria, and Mob Mentality…) is to bring charges against the unvaccinated. (Even came up on the Today show). Let’s take a look at that. Our justice system was founded, oddly enough, on the idea of justice, […]

Vaccinations, Hysteria, and Mob Mentality…

The recent “outbreak” of measles at Disneyland has sparked quite a bit of controversy and hysteria.  On Facebook I’ve seen a huge jump in the number of shared articles calling for all sorts of shaming of parents who don’t fully vaccinate (at the very least) to calling for criminal charges against parents, some even calling for the […]

We are in Love with Les Misérables…

We bought the 2012 movie adaptation of Les Mis from Amazon Instant about a week and a half ago after finally giving in to our oldest daughter’s near begging. I’d read as a kid, but was not at all prepared for the movie. How much did we like it? Let’s just say we’ve seen fully […]

Why I’m Voting Yes on I-522…

1 November 2013

I was a big proponent in getting I-522 on the ballot, but as time went on, I had some nagging concerns that grew larger and larger. The truth is, those concerns haven’t been addressed. I-522 is flawed. But I’m still voting Yes. Let me start with the concerns. First, there are loopholes in what things […]

The Boston Bombings…

17 April 2013

3 Comments

There’s been plenty of speculation about the tragedy in Boston, fueled in part by the investigation and not wanting to release information, partly by media not wanting to jump the gun regarding responsibility for the attack, partly because of conflicting reports, and some even speculate a conspiracy or cover-up. I think it’s easy to understand […]

Follow up on HB 1934 Responses…

28 February 2013

Original post here. After my reply, the email I received was, verbatim, the summary of the bill…so I replied back with: Thanks. I’ve already read through the bill report and the analysis. What’s becoming more troubling, though, is the apparent refusal to address the specific questions asked by a constituent. I know you and you […]
