    So this disease vector was at Taco Bell for 5 and 6 hours on consecutive days? Would it be wildly speculative to assume this person works there and handles food?


    Maybe we need laws that prevent these people from attending public schools (yes, including community colleges and public universities) and from working in settings where they encounter lots of people and/or prepare food.

      They already know who the young lady is that was infected. She got the disease from her father that just returned from overseas. She wasn’t at those locations for that amount of time…that was the amount of time the disease was alive in those locations where you had a chance of catching measles. But yes, I agree…no vaccinations, no school.

      • Steven Towers Steven Towers says:

        Viruses aren’t really “alive” in the biological sense. Measles virus remains viable outside of carriers for about 2 hours. It’s curious, then, that two of those exposure windows—if that’s what they are—are less than 2 hours.

      Yeah, let’s give Donald Trump & Gavin Newsom the authority to compel citizens to receive injections containing toxic chemicals like mercury in vaccines which may have originated in aborted fetal research. Otherwise PEOPLE WILL DIE!

      Perhaps in a decade or two when AOC is in charge, citizens will have to receive sterilization vaccines in order to combat global warming. If you desire progeny, you’ll need to get approval from the bureau of life & diversity. Otherwise PEOPLE WILL DIE!

        OK, I think we’ve jumped the shark on this topic.

        • Avatar Tim says:

          Not sure which part you find Fonz-worthy, but vaccines used to contain mercury, then ethylmercury, and still contain chemicals we know to be harmful (albeit in small amounts).

          And yes, the Rubella vaccine was developed using stem cells, so if you get your measles vaccine from the combination MMR you are getting something that was literally grown and replicated from an aborted fetus.

          Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez becoming a world leader in 10-20 years? Well let’s hope I’m wrong there… That she says global warming is killing people? Yep, check yesterday’s Guardian for her latest “people are dying” dire warning.

          Do governments want a birth control vaccine? Yep, we’ve been developing it since the 80s and the World Health Organization has been unethically testing it in 3rd world countries since the 90s. Here is a story where Catholics in Kenya recently caught the WHO trying to pass off a recent version as a tetanus vaccine: https://www.ncronline.org/news/world/kenyas-catholic-bishops-tetanus-vaccine-birth-control-disguise

          Do people believe population control is a key part of fighting climate change? Yep, AOC has been rhetorically asking her supporters if it is OK to still have children in the face of climate change. NPR even published a report advocating “Population Engineering” in the fight against climate change. The bureau of life and diversity may be fictional, but the sentiment certainly exists (and has since at least the Eugenics craze 100 years ago, if not from Plato)

          Does the government have the right to force you to be vaccinated? That’s the question of the day, though the Supreme Court did rule in Jacobson v. Massachusetts (1905) that it is within the police power of the state since, in their view, compulsory vaccinations were “not an invasion of any constitutional rights.”

    As Arizona is debating vaccination requirements one thing was pointed out. This outbreak of measles nationwide is those who have not been vaccinated are catching the disease, those who have been vaccinated are not catching the disease. Vaccinations work.

    • Steven Towers Steven Towers says:

      1-2 kids out of 1,000 who get measles die, most often from pneumonia complications—it’s a serious disease.

      People who think vaccines pose a risk probably wouldn’t pass on them if it weren’t for “herd immunity.” Even though measles is serious, they’re betting that their kid won’t be exposed to the disease because nearly everyone else gets their kids vaccinated. It’s profoundly selfish.

      That selfishness is compounded due to the fact that there are kids out there who really need that herd immunity to be fail-safe, because their immune systems are compromised. Some are on immunosuppressants because they had organ or tissue transplants. Others are getting chemotherapy.

      The infected kid who exposes those compromised kids is likely to recover. Recovery for the immune-system compromised kids is far less certain.

        Some years back, I attended a meet-and-greet hosted by Brian Dahle and Ted Gaines. There were a lot of State of Jefferson supporters who mingled with the crowd, mostly saying that Southern California wants “our” water; therefore, Jefferson could support itself. However, one older lady approached me pretty much saying that vaccinations are evil. I told her that she had every right not to vaccinate her child/grandchild, but that the rest of us had that same right not to allow her child/grandchild to attend school.

      • Avatar Tim says:

        By that logic, is it not profoundly selfish to force your neighbor to inject foreign matter into her child because your “compromised” child cannot survive to adulthood unaided?

    Right there in Redding when I worked at SUHSD it was a requirement that I be vaccinated for Smallpox. I had no problem with that.
    I have been vaccinated for every disease since I was young. I drank fluoride city water all my growing up years and at 76 I still have all my teeth, except for the front two knocked out by high school football. I injected drugs like cocaine, meth and MJ, as many in Redding have. I smoked Camel cigarettes until I quit over forty years ago. Vaccinations, despite the untrue negative allegations, have been the least dangerous things I have done to my body. Am I an exception, no, I am the normal old person who has lived this long and am looking forward to 100 because of vaccinations.
