Vaccinations

How many times have you heard somebody say, “I’m not getting the flu shot because the last time I did I got the worse case of flu I ever had,” Truth is, I remember using that same excuse myself many years ago.

Since then, I have done quite a bit of research and here is what I found out. There is absolutely nothing in the flu shot that can make you sick. According to live science the flu shots take two weeks to take effect and if you come in contact with the flu during that time you may get the flu. Some people have even equated the common cold with the shot. If you get your shot every year you will be protected during that time. If you are an older person and get the flu it can be deadly as your body has a harder time fighting off the virus. I have even heard people say that they weren’t going to get the shot this year because the CDC said that it didn’t cover a certain strain of flu. Trust me, it will still cover other strains of flu and the one it doesn’t cover may not even materialize. My question is, “why would you not want to provide as much protection for your body as possible?”

An anti-vaxxer asked me once, “How could it be a danger to other kids if I don’t vaccinate my child since most children are vaccinated?”

According to the  CDC :  “People at high risk for contracting disease such as infants, who are too young to be fully vaccinated and people with weaker immune systems, such as some people with cancer and transplant recipients” are all at risk.

There are some diseases thought to be eradicated by vaccine that are now making a comeback (mic.) Measles, mumps and whooping cough have all reemerged, and there are others. If somebody gets sick because a child is not vaccinated, the parents of that child should be held responsible. If a child dies because his/her parents refused to vaccinate that child, that is child abuse at its worst.

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Here is a disclaimer that might be necessary because of people who want to pick at every word I write to falsely accuse me of practicing law or trying to be a lawyer.  What follows regarding the constitution and state rights are things that I learned in my senior year of high school.  My freshman year college political science class and junior college class in business law also play significant roles in what I learned and retained about courts and the law. So there!

Hurricane Harvey In Texas

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

“Catastrophic flooding is now underway and expected to continue for days.”

Posted using Press This.

Flooding from Tropical Storm Harvey is overburdening resources as authorities in and around Houston scramble to save those trapped by the high waters.

Hopes for an immediate respite from Harvey’s wrath seem unlikely as the National Weather Service calls the flooding “unprecedented” and warns things may become more dire if a record-breaking 50 inches of rain falls on parts of Texas in coming days.

The rainfall threatens to exacerbate an already dangerous situation, as Harvey’s rains have left many east Texas rivers and bayous swollen to their banks or beyond.

“The breadth and intensity of this rainfall are beyond anything experienced before,” the weather service said. “Catastrophic flooding is now underway and expected to continue for days.”

Some of My observations

 


 

Insurance companies, Pharma and hospitals are all in cahoots to keep prices high.

Republicans are so obsessed with getting rid of Obamacare that it may well destroy them.

Republicans insist that Obamacare is failing but the American Public knows better.

Scaramucci is a foul mouthed SOB and he probably won’t last long in his position.

To be attacked by Trump on Twitter is an honor.

All the aliens on Star Trek and Star Wars speak English, but the “president” of the United States does not.

Anybody on Trumps staff that doesn’t kiss his ass is fired.

Trump thinks that his job is to threaten and bully congress into passing laws that he wants.

If congress doesn’t do what he wants, Trump will simply write an executive order.

Scarramucci says he isn’t there to suck his own c**k. No, he’s there to suck Trumps.

Trump thinks he can rule through Twitter that’s how he wanted to deny trans people military service.

Scaramucci’s wife is smarter than he is. She’s divorcing him. Probably don’t like the taste of Trumps c**k on his lips.

Trump is working on Hitler’s playbook trying to turn the Boy Scouts into Trump youth.

 

 

 

 


 

My Take on The News


Spicer quit, resigned, called it quits, ran out. First reports were that he didn’t like [scaramoochi, Carramboochi, or whatever that name is.] Later Spicy held a press conference saying that he fully supported the “presidents” decision and he resigned in order to give Scaramucci [or whatever] more leeway. Scaramucci immediately held a kiss m’lord Trumpy’s ass press conference. Personally, I think there’s more to it than that. I think that, although Spicy didn’t mind lying for m’lord, he refused to get poop on his nose. (Just sayen) Spicer quit to save his own ass as the house of cards falls.

On the subject of John McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer. The official story is that he went in for removal of a blood clot over his eye and they found the cancer, but I believe that he originally went in for removal and biopsy of a tumor and the blood clot was used as an excuse until they found anything definitive. That is just the way it’s done and there’s nothing wrong with that. John McCain will have the best health care he can get, and I’m glad, I do not begrudge him that. John McCain is a war hero and I will not speak ill of him, but my question is this—McConnell put off a vote on health care repeal and replace until McCain was well enough to vote. Presumably he would have voted for the bill. How would he vote now that he has become the victim of an unexpected, potentially deadly disease?

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is now press secretary. My, isn’t it amazing what people will do for a little (self-perceived) power. Trump has been “president” for six months, the ship is sinking, and he can still find people stupid enough to work for him, including lawyers. I thought lawyers were supposed to be smart.

It is reported that Trump the [not so] great is looking into pardoning himself and his family. He has even tweeted that he has broad pardoning powers

    Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

“While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us.FAKE NEWS”

The president can potentially pardon himself but as one of my facebook friends pointed out, that would probably be hashed out in the courts for years. It would be like the sheriff pardoning himself for taking bribes. Another thing is that even though he pardoned himself for those federal crimes they could still be used against him for impeachment. The way I see it, one of two things will happen. The first is that he will pardon himself, thus admitting guilt and hastening impeachment or he will fire Mueller, hastening impeachment. Either one will leave Republicans no choice.

The opinions expressed in this blog are mine and mine alone. If you disagree with them that is OK, but please be gentle.


The Health Care Bill’s Collapse Leaves a Divided GOP at the Crossroads — Politics – TIME

(WASHINGTON) — The implosion of the Senate Republican health care bill leaves a divided GOP with its flagship legislative priority in tatters and confronts a wounded President Donald Trump and congressional leaders with dicey decisions about addressing their perhaps unattainable seven-year-old promise of repealing President Barack Obama’s law. Two GOP senators — Utah’s Mike Lee…
