Virginia to implement mandatory vaccination?

Delegate O’Bannon

Richmond, Virginia 23218

Delegate O’Bannon:

I read today in an article published by inquisitor.com and on wtvr.com that had an interview with you concerning measles vaccinations for Virginia residents. You are quoted as saying parents that do not vaccinate their children should be “Held Accountable.” I presume your meaning is that you wish there were laws that allowed parents of vaccinated child to sue parents of an unvaccinated child if the vaccinated child got sick as a result from exposure to a sick unvaccinated child, and or criminal charges be placed on the unvaccinated child’s parents. I would like to communicate to you my own personal resistance to this sort of thinking, and I would like to share with you some of my own personal experience with vaccines in my family, and also ask you some questions about your core philosophical positions.

My father almost died from taking a shingles vaccine a couple years ago. He was 63 years old and didn’t want to suffer the pain of shingles that his brother in law did. He went to a pharmacy in the Kroger’s grocery store and got the shot and then started grocery shopping with my mother. About fifteen minutes after getting the shot he started feeling itchy and hot. It was a familiar feeling he has had before. He is allergic to pork and beef and dairy, and whenever he ingest those he will develop hives, rashes, fever, and restriction of his airways. Usually a Benadryl will relieve the symptoms while he sleeps it off. My father did not even think to ask if the vaccine had pork products in it, but it did and was labeled as Gelatin. He went back to the pharmacy and began to have a full on anaphylaxis episode. The pharmacist injected him with an epy-pen, but that was not enough. An ambulance came and took him off in a stretcher, as he began to see a bright light at the end of a tunnel. He was a half a hairs width from passing on into eternity. Being a easy going friendly man he did not even think of seeking out legal counsel to see if he could have his medical expenses paid by someone that was responsible. He didn’t like the idea of suing the small town local pharmacist, and believed the pharmaceutical company should have labeled the product better, and given better training to those licensed to administer it. I convinced him to call around and find a lawyer, but no matter who he called, nobody would take on the pharmaceutical company. There is a pseudo legal court system for vaccine injured children that pays out money for damaged children, but not adults, and not for the shingles vaccine. We found out the companies that make vaccines are actually immune from all lawsuits per the federal law, and that is very telling to me. Warranties and Guarantees are proudly displayed on merchandise on store shelves, letting us know that the company stands behind its product, but not the pharmaceutical companies. Is that just, is that fair? Who will pay my father’s medical bills? And who will be responsible for his next anaphylaxis episode now that he is even more sensitive allergic ally than before? Not the pharmaceutical company. My son was born with an allergy to wheat, but we didn’t realize it until months later. Suppose that there was an ingredient derived from wheat in one of the vaccines they give in the hospital just after a child is born. Do pediatricians and maternity nurses test for allergies in children before they vaccinate them? So you see vaccine safety and efficacy is not so cut and dry, black and white.

Police Viciously Sent Dogs To Attack Female Student For Resisting To Answer Their Questions

On Norfolk State University grounds, police sent dogs to attack female student and Army Reserve private London Colvin. According to reports, she refused to answer any of their questions or give any information about a fight at a party she wasn’t even involved in. Right before the cops had the dogs charge at her, two of them sat on Colvin and then the dogs mauled her, according to eyewitnesses.

Colvin, a current Sociology major was leaving an off-campus party at 2:15 on a Sunday just as a fight erupted. She and her friends were approached by police about what happened or how it started and because she had nothing to do with it, she didn’t want care to have a discourse about it. The aftermath of her resistance has been shared through her cousin Whitney Dunn via the local paper Potomac Local. On Colvin’s behalf, Dunn said this:

Thank you Ron Paul. Thank you Daily Paul. Thank you Mr. Nystrom.

I remember when I first discovered Ron Paul. I was a conservative on the religious right, studying to become a pastor, and blissfully unaware of the real going ons of the world. I was watching a presidential debate sponsored by AFA (American family association) in the fall of 2007. The turn out to the debate was abysmal, with only candidates not afraid to voice their faith present. Huckabe was there, that other catholic neocon, some other no name guy and Ron Paul. I listened carefully and took notes, and then something happened, I had a religious experience via Ron Pauls words.

CIA On Trial In Virginia For Planting Nuke Evidence In Iran

Since Tuesday and continuing for the coming three weeks, an amazing trial is happening in U.S. District Court at 401 Courthouse Square in Alexandria, Va. The trial is open to the public, and among the upcoming witnesses is Condoleezza Rice, but — unlike the Chelsea Manning trial — most of the seats at this somewhat similar event are empty.

Really want help with a new web news feed site

I come to you humbly, hoping to make a decent start on a new website. I need all the input I can get. On the other hand, I'm asking for something kinda one-sided. You contribute your ideas to me, and I'll just take them for free! (-:

I live in Winchester, VA. I have a few things I believe in, and as a nerdy guy, I always feel the need to run out and register a domain name for this great new idea that I presume I've had. Well, most recently, I was motivated to make a new site called WinchesterCorruption.org

Buying a house...

Ok, so I would like to buy a house. What kind? How big? Who cares. Anything with a couple bedrooms is fine, but this is practically off topic.

My question deals with the economy. What I would like to know from the experienced minds on here is when you think the housing market may crash again. Tough to say yes, but I would like to hear you opinions.

Second question, what would be the difficulty of getting a home loan after the crash versus now and what sort of interest rates are we going to be seeing?

Hunger Games Activism

Hunger Games 2 comes out this friday. I have read the books and saw the first movie. Contrary to what some in the media portray, it is an anti-statist movie and can be very useful to the Liberty movement.

As the much anticipated movie comes out next friday, I pieced together some flyer material that I plan on distributing to people entering and exiting the movie theater. You can view the materials below. Feel free to share and I would be happy to hear suggestions.

Peace

Organic Cosmetics

So my wife has recently joined NYR Organic, a cosmetic company that uses GMO-free, organic ingredients in their beauty products. The FDA doesn't regulate cosmetics so a lot of horrible stuff goes into their making. You can see what goes into certain products here: http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/

Not only does your skin absorb these chemicals, but when washed off, guess where it goes? If you guessed "ecosystem", you are correct. Take a look at their products and tell me what you think:
