The BMGF, Rotary International, and British and German governments have pledged $630 million dollars to eradicate polio once and for all. They should allot $50,000 of that to relocate the anti-vaxx 'tards to the McDonald Islands. >.>

I never understood the resistance against vaccination. A vaccine is usually just exposure to a weaken virus so your body can develop immunity. How is that morally objectional or too "high tech"? ::shrug::

But the mercury will harm the children! Think of the children!

Wait, that got eliminated back in 2001... Um...

The aluminium! The viruses! They harm the children! Think of the children!

On a more realistic note, it seems to be that people can't admit that someone who's spent six or more years studying medicine knows more about how the human body works than they do. It's essentially the arrogance of ignorance, writ large.

One of the fears is that it's a plan to make the men sterile so westerners can conquer the world.

After all, we no longer consider it appropriate to hospitalize your girlfriend when she talks back.

*shakes his head*

I remember this saying in an anthro book on the Yamamomo (sp?  The Fierce People) that this scarred woman looked at the interviewer and told her that the interviewer's husband must not love her very much because she didn't have a single scar from beatings.

No!  The white-man has not conquered the lands of -insert insane tribal leader here-!

For great glory we must run our economies into the ground (oh Bobby Mugabe, I kid, I love your inflationary schemes, and so does the American government apparently)
