I have felt troubled, by the recent controversy over vaccines brought about by fools like PIGnocchio, and especially Idiot, Son of Idiot, Named after Idiot. I had a friend tell me how dangerous vaccines have become, I explained that a duck follows Dr. Mercola (her source) around to sound the warning. Fortunately someone else is sounding the warning far better than a duck.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is not having any of your anti-vaxxer nonsense, or any of Sen. Rand Paul’s anti-vaxxer nonsense either. At a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee hearing on vaccinations, Warren had some questions for the director for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the CDC:
“Is there any scientific evidence that vaccines cause autism?”
“Is there any scientific evidence that vaccines cause ‘profound mental disorders’?”
“Is there any scientific evidence that vaccines have contributed to the rise in allergies or auto-immune disorders among kids?”
“Are there additives or preservatives in vaccines that can be toxic to kids?”
“Is there any scientific evidence that giving kids their vaccines further apart or spacing them differently is healthier for kids?”
“Is there any scientific evidence that kids can develop immunity to these diseases on their own, simply by eating nutritious foods or being active?”
(Answer key: No, no, no, no, no, and no.)
Important questions, but one stood out: "Is there any scientific evidence that vaccines cause ‘profound mental disorders’?"
Rand Paul last week: "I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines."

Here she is in action:
The facts are clear. Bringing back diseased that we have completely controlled is insane, and too high a price to pay for for a few wing-nuts to just want to inspire fear.
