  1. We all know the truth about those vaccines. They continuously try to lie, deceive, and blind the public from the truth but someday it will become to big for them to do so anymore. The US government has a long brutal history of vaccine experimentation.

  2. great image, Peter… if you click on it, you get the larger version which makes it more legible.

    scary subject… you’re right, Evette – think of those small pox blankets. what kind of men do such things?

  3. ……….I’m hoping this post means that the poster doesn’t believe in those idiot lies about vaccines causing autism.

    Also, that is one freaking ugly baby D: If you really had wanted to provoke more of an emotional response, you should have used photoshop/gimp to work two photographs into each other and make it look more realistic and more endearing that way. Just saying. It’s freaky. And I almost don’t mind that it’s being speared by a hypodermic needle because it IS so creepy.

  4. I wouldn’t even bother responding to such a comment – if an individual can’t offer any cogent arguments in refutation of a point, they should just exercise their lateral muscles and embrace my posterior appendages.

    Autism is genetic. meaning that it’s determined BEFORE BIRTH if a person has autism. you don’t get vaccines before you’re a fetus, so there is no way vaccines could cause autism. Heck, the guy who first claimed that vaccines cause autism tried to sell his own version that apparently didn’t. ALSO this entire thing is extremely ableist, claiming that autism is an “epidemic” is super rude. We aren’t monsters, in need of a cure, or all children. We just want people like you to stop demonizing us and accommodate our needs. I have a friend who’s little sister also has autism, for the first week after she was born she couldn’t open her eyes because of the sensory overload. She was born with it. She got the gene from her father. I only spoke in broken sentences. Does experiencing pain from lights, sounds, and certain textures make us monsters?

  6. Ummmmm…. I’m not vaccinated and I’m Autistic!? How did that happen? Oh no, It must be infectious!!!
