Tea Party supports vaccine bill

The Central Mississippi Tea Party issued the following press release:

In agreement with one of our basic Principles, “Constitutionally Limited Government” The Ms Tea Party supports HB 130.

Whereas: Constitutionally Limited Government substantiates the right of the individual to make decisions prudent for himself and his family, the basic building block of civil Society,

Whereas: The principles set forth in the Sacred Documents, the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness demand that we exercise our God-given rights of Individual liberty guided by personal responsibility,

Whereas: Associations of Big Pharma and State Government has diminished this free exercise to make prudent decisions for self-regulation, medical prerogatives for healthy living, and individual freedom,

Whereas, We (the Ms Tea Party) have seen increasing encroachment of government to remove individual freedom in preference to the “Common Good” (a Socialist argument) even when the posit is not substantially proven and even disproven in other States,

Whereas: Scientific investigations have shown that Mississippi is the most heavily vaccinated population in the U.S. by demand of the Ms Department of Health,

Whereas: Appearing in news reports that the CDC is preventing evidence of Vaccination injury, reactions such as autism, seizure disorders, and deaths are being suppressed to prevent necessary public awareness resulting in less than informed consent to parental rights for their children

Whereas: Ms Department of Health exercises inordinate pressure on physicians and clinics to heavy vaccination schedules, sometimes in contradiction to prudent “best practices”,

The Ms Tea Party calls on the Ms Legislature to review carefully HB 130 to protect children, families and liberty in Mississippi.

May God SAVE America

What a surprise. It's a shame these folks are promoting increasing the risks of epidemics of all sorts of childhood diseases with potentially serious consequences and increased health care costs, especially when their position is based on bad science, fear and irrationality. We had virtually eradicated a number of these diseases. Now we are going to run the risk of bringing them back based on a misplaced understanding of our rights.

11:43. Don't forget now they are in Madison County. Billingsly and Bomgar are both straight-up Tea Party nuts and now they want to be elected to office. Bomgar has recruited 3 Tea Party crazies to run against elected GOP legislators in Desoto. Tea Party nuts work against the GOP. They are no better than democrats and will be treated as such. Anyone supporting these fools will be called out. We will have your names from mail outs and contribution lists. Starting with the campaign people Josh Gregory, Quinton Dickerson and Tona Becker. You have made your bed in the Tea Party now that your helping Bomgar. You are no longer recognized as republicans. From now on you are democrats.

Why anybody would have a beef with Mr. Bomgar is beyond me. Why not just air your issues instead of taking pot shots? What has he done other than start a great company from a dorm room and create a lot of much needed tech jobs in the area.

Update December 1, 2015. 16:24 CST ATLANTA (AP)
The CDC in Atlanta, GA. announced today of a new disease threatening the United States. MBB666 or commonly known as MCDaniel-Billingsly-Bomgar's disease has reached crucial levels in the southern region of the USA. The state of Mississippi has been hit the hardest. Vaccinations will be provided FREE OF CHARGE at all GOP headquarter locations. Just provide ID and sign a waver that you support all republicans against a Tea Party assault. Those who voted for MCDaniel or support Billingsly or Bomgar will not recieve immunization for they are infested and no cure has been found. Only preventive measures have been found effective. This has been a Public Service Annoumcement from the CDC.

7:43 -- when something terrible happens to a child, parents seek answers. And when there are no answers, they seek to blame. One nutjob "researcher" in Britain puts together a non-peer-reviewed study made up of fewer than 20 kids and turns correlation into causation (the initial symptoms of autism, for example, usually become evident around the time that the recommended vaccine schedule really picks up), and then the parents have something to blame.

The SCIENCE doesn't support your paranoia. Seriously, NONE OF IT. Your "evidence" is based on the disgraced Andrew Wakefield, Jenny McCarthy, and the craziest of the "if the government likes it, it must be bad" crowd.

You don't want to vaccine your kids? Whatever. Keep them at home. Keep them the hell away from my kids. PEOPLE LIKE YOU PUT MY KIDS AT RISK. And, I swear, if one of my kids ends up sick or dead because of one of you flat-earthers, vaccines will be the LAST of your worries.

Anonymous said...

7:43, a child has a higher risk of serious effects from measles than having autism from a vaccination. The fact that a child has autism doesn't necessarily mean it is a result of vaccination. Cause and effect is tricky and people often make wrong conclusions because they are misled into making leaps that aren't justified. Many women believed silicon breast implants caused their auto immune illnesses. Careful research found that the women who had these implants had the same rate of incidence as those who did not have implants, debunking a common misperception.

Nothing is without risk, but the risks of no vaccination are higher than risk of vaccination. A rational parent will vaccinate because the odds are higher for a serious problem if no vaccination. An irrational parent will foolishly risk the child's health and possibly life to avoid a small risk. It is like not wearing a seatbelt in the hopes you will beat the odds and be thrown free of a car without serious injury when the statistics show that serious injury is much more likely without a seatbelt.

Anonymous said...

And, 7:35, how would that parent feel if the child contracts measles and is left blind or deaf or with other serious injury, or when as an adult a young woman gives birth to a child with serious deformities from rubella because she wasn't vaccinated. These scenarios are more likely than autism.

"I know FIRST HAND what can happen when you overload a child's body with too many immunizations too fast as they do before our kids go to school in Mississippi. Our grandson became a Type 1 diabetic with 48 hours of having been overloaded with shots for school. Since then I have been on a 'BandWagon" about this. I have met with over 200 other parents who have suffered the same thing but many of them MUCH WORSE complications than Type 1 diabetes.

It breaks your heart ot see some of the children who are SEVERLY handicaped now because the Healt Dept refuses to give one shot at a time and give the child time to recover.

"One nutjob "researcher" in Britain puts together a non-peer-reviewed study "

That's not exactly correct. The Lancet is a prestigious peer-reviewed journal. Unfortunately scientists are not cynical enough to suspect someone has submitted a manuscript based on fraudulent data. He made up the numbers to "prove" his agenda. It took years of other studies that failed to replicate his findings before people became suspicious enough ti investigate fraud, and the his scheme all fell apart (he lost his license, the journal officially retracted the paper and denounced him as a fraud, etc). No scientist can make a career out of making spectacular claims and supporting them with fraudulent data, because if the claim is spectacular enough, and the supposed consequences of the claim are important enough, eventually the failure to replicate the results by other investigators will prove to be the undoing of the fraudster. Since it is eventually career suicide no reviewer or editor suspects anyone would be stupid enough to try it (but they do, and get caught eventually).

The MS Tea Party, OTOH, probably would support legislation mandating that parents have the right to decide for themselves if it is safe or not to drop a plugged-in radio into their child's bath water. Keep Big Gubmint out of our bathtubs!!!!!

What's next for the Tea Party? Attacking socialized waste water treatment? Why shouldn't people be able to opt out on government controls of #1 and #2?

Kingfish said...

I am going to accept the claim made by the supporters of this bill.

Before the vaccine became widespread, there were over half a million cases of measles per year. Half a million. The death rate is 1 per 1,000 cases. That is not counting other complications such as encephalitis, pneumonia, and brain damage. Thus there were 500 or so deaths PER YEAR.

If I take the number cited in the WSJ column last week as accurate, there are 1 case per 365,000 doses of the vaccine that result in severe side effects.

Its a numbers game. If you vaccinate, you will have some children who suffer side effects, some of them severe. The vaccine will not work sometimes BUT that is true of ALL vaccines. However, not vaccinating means kids die and more kids will die than are harmed by the vaccine.

I'm not belittling the suffering of these parents or what their kids experience. They are anguished and extremely upset. They have gone through hell seeing their children suffer. However, they offer little scientific evidence and the probabilities as well.

That said...

I have to, at this point, be more than a little concerned that neither Bill nor Bomgaar are able to positively influence the MS Tea Party and do not seem to be in leadership positions. Nor do they forcefully speak up when their party goes awry.

You can't change groups you aren't in, but it is incumbent upon you to be a positive force in the groups to which you belong.

I do not know Bomgaar but I know Bill to be a smart and decent man who surprised and disappointed me by not cautioning those in his party early on in the Senate race. He may have done so privately. I hope so, but I felt the time came when a more public warning should have been issued and you would certainly have given him a forum.

He and Bomgaar should be addressing this, not you.

I would also point out to you that we have a problem with the statistics on " side effects". The first problem is that , in an effort to save money, vaccinations have been " stacked". In other words, a child receives more than one immunization at a time. This muddies the waters. Another problem is that some parents aren't aware of the signs a child may be susceptible to allergic reactions, " allergic shiners" ( dark circles around the eyes ) is one. They aren't aware of what early signs of a bad reaction are.

And, some, even if cautioned, don't want to make multiple visits for vaccinations when it's more convenient and less expensive to have them stacked.

But, we can't discuss these things, pressure health care providers and insurers, because those who are reacting emotionally are preventing the science that should take place.

MS has a high rate of immunizations but a low rate of autism. That we haven't looked at why there is such a wide disparity from state to state of the incidence per capita of autism is disturbing.

But, we cannot do what is needed to be done scientifically if we don't approach these problems rationally .

And, while I have sympathy with parents who feel their children have been harmed or damaged, the truth is that they lack the emotional distance necessary. Identifying a problem is not the same as solving it. To solve it, you need those who have invested a lifetime in looking at the science. Compiling anecdotal examples is not science.

You bother to learn about the details of important issues, KF and I respect that very much. Too many are so entrenched in party politics these days that rational thought is abandoned.

"MS has a high rate of immunizations but a low rate of autism. "

Excellent point. If the Chicken Littles in the anti-vax movement were correct in their correlation = causation arguments, then MS would be expected to have the highest rate of autism in the USA because we have the highest rate of vaccination against preventable diseases.

I'm suprised I haven't heard that point raised before.

Interesting - again the commentators here on JJ want to take off on their own issues rather than the subject of their post; in this case vacannations and the Tea Party.

But - over half the comments here are about Bomgar and Billingsby.

Yes, both are/have been members of the TP. Yes, the TP as it exists today, particularly in the metro area - is a bunch of nutjobs. But there were many well meaning good conservatives once affiliated with the TP in this area that supported its founding mission - less spending, less debt.

The idiots that claim to be leaders (Nicholson, LVO, Lane, ...) all have decided that they should weigh in on everything, and be against everything. And as such they have made themselves irrelevant.

But I don't buy into the concept that that disqualifies either Bomgar or Billingsby - or for that matter anybody working for their election. (Notice - a clear exception for anybody working for McD, Watson, or Sojourner - the leadership of the idiocy of 2014.)

I realize that many posting on here have a vested interest in getting themselves elected/reelected. If you want to start a thread about Joel or Bill, do it. Plenty to comment about either, with an appropriate discussion of their actual (not alleged or misstated) role in either the McNutt campaign or in the recruiting of candidates.

Right now, for this thread - focus on the idiots at the TP trying to insure the recreating of some serious infectious diseases here in our state.

You are helping perpetuate a fraud that the MMR produces autism. See the article in today's New York Times where it states:
" Typically, the M.M.R. shot is given to infants at about 12 months and again at age 5 or 6. This doctor, Andrew Wakefield, wrote that his study of 12 children showed that the three vaccines taken together could alter immune systems, causing intestinal woes that then reach, and damage, the brain. In fairly short order, his findings were widely rejected as — not to put too fine a point on it — bunk. Dozens of epidemiological studies found no merit to his work, which was based on a tiny sample. The British Medical Journal went so far as to call his research “fraudulent.” The British journal Lancet, which originally published Dr. Wakefield’s paper, retracted it. The British medical authorities stripped him of his license."

Laura Van Crazyperson issued this proclamation/press release? Looked and read like her, even before I got to the name at the bottom - full of b/s and distorted 'facts' supporting a total misapplication of the term "good government".

I had heard that she had moved - and thought it the best thing to have ever happened for the benefit of our state. Evidently was just a bad rumor - probably because she had kept her trap shut of her idiocy for a few weeks and we were all celebrating over not having to listen to her dribble.

To the fallacious comment that measles last only a few days, but autism lasts a life time: You are ignoring the fact that death is a risk of measles (and more likely than autism, if there is even a link to autism from vaccination). You also ignore risks of permanent brain damage, damage to eyesight, etc., from measles. With rubella, there is a risk of birth defects when pregnant women are infected with rubella.

When the Koch family helped found the John Birch Society in the 1950s our freedom was already being lost. They were among the first to suspect that Dwight Eisenhower was a Communist. It was at this same time that vaccinations were forced on the American people. Vaccinations and other government regulations are part of the master plan of controlling people into Communist slavery. People in Mississippi started waking up last year. They saw the truth. They saw the conspiracy against them. People are waking up all across the county. They are being reborn into patriots. This year we will elect more patriots in the legislature. Next year we will for the first time since the founding days of our country elect a patriot. The Koch Brothers will spend $1 billion to make it happen. Jeb Bush will be defeated in the primaries. A patriot like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, or Sarah Palin will win the Republican nomination and will defeat Hillary Clinton. Our country will be free again. Free from vaccinations, free from communist education and healthcare, free from godless laws and regulations, free from the nanny state, free from the Communist influenced Republicans and Democrats. American is being reborn.

I went to the John birch society website.
I saw a cute little word called 'con cons' referring to communists.
Oh, the irony that the FBI was founded to combat communism. The Koch brothers were found guilty by the Feds for a little oil pollution.
Bush got the charges dropped.
Y'all are a bunch of dumbasses.
You have the freedom to be a lemming and walk right off a cliff running from the red scare.

last summer Madison County distributed the anti-tea party vaccine and it was a resounding success. looks like it has about only a year shelf life. Come August we will be administering another round of this vaccine. If you start to feel stupid, ignorant or just plain foolish you may have contracted the tea party virus. have no fear. this vaccine we have works very well. you can go to your local voting booth and get a dose. just pull the lever and vote for anyone except Billingsly or Bomgar and you will be protected and cured. isn't science wonderful!

The liberal media portrays anyone who is for freedom as some type of kook. For some 50 years they did this to the John Birch Society, Koch family, Josephy McCarthy, and many others until people finally started to wake up. People are tired of elections with two phony choices. There is no difference between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton just like there was no difference between Thad Cochran and Travis Childers. They are one and the same. Two sides of a coin. The money comes from the same people. It has always been rigged but now people are waking up. People now know there are real patriots and they will vote for them.

"It was at this same time that vaccinations were forced on the American people. "

Hey psycho - the first polio vaccine wasn't available until 1956, when it was immediately embraced by the public because they had lived through polio epidemics and wanted to see it eradicated. Then came measles, mumps, rubella, etc.

Nice piece of satire Libertyland. But just in case you're serious, there's a nice room at Whitfield waiting for you.

Longwitz is Tea Party also.

Paranoid delusions are not limited to talking dogs, or radio messages from implants by aliens, or the CIA.

The delusional thinking can be attached to real people or government or history . Religious ideations are common.

What characterizes those who are paranoid is conspiratorial thinking and imagined threats that have no basis in fact.

They create a world that doesn't exist but that is seen as a threat to them.

The " voices" they hear are sometimes, like with the Uni-Bomber, the thoughts that come to them rather than the fantasy of an entity speaking to them.

There are no facts, there is no logic that can dissuade. If you try to disabuse them of their conspiratorial notions, they see you as the part of their conspiracy or the enemy.

I can't be certain 6:42 pm is clinically paranoid or just duped by the ravings of someone who is paranoid.

It's also not uncommon for those with PTSD to exhibit paranoid ideations.

At any rate,you can't deal rationally with an irrational person.


6:42 am... whatever the cause of your bizarre thinking or source of misinformation , you are thinking irrationally. You are unable to identify the difference between fact and fiction.

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2015/02/gop-senator-let-restaurants-opt-out-of-handwashing-after-toilet-to-reduce-regulatory-burden/

“Don’t you believe that this regulation that requires this gentlemen to wash his hands before he serves your food is important?” Tillis was asked by the person at his table.

“I think it’s one I can illustrate the point,” Tillis told the women. “I said, I don’t have any problem with Starbucks if they choose to opt out of this policy as long as the post a sign that says ‘We don’t require our employees to wash their hands after leaving the restrooms.’ The market will take care of that.”

“That’s probably one where every business that did that would go out of business,” he added. “But I think it’s good to illustrate the point that that’s the sort of mentality that we need to have to reduce the regulatory burden on this country.”

“We’re one of the most regulated nations in the history of the planet, and I think if we go about it in a common sense way that that solves a lot of problems. It makes these other big problems that we’re talking about imminently more easy to solve.”

Bomgar is having a Tea Party and ANTI-Vaccine meeting at Cock of the Walk THURSDAY NIGHT!!!! Lets all show up and see what kooks he has supporting him. Lets see...there will be NUT JOB and Tea Party Queen PAT BRUCE, former republican now Tea Party operative Tona Becker, Josh "New McDaniel Campaign Manager" Gregory, Bill "Tea Party Vote Counter" Billingsly.

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) became the latest Republican on Tuesday to speak out against vaccine mandates, saying: "We should not have an oppressive state telling us what to do."

"I want that to be my choice as a parent," Duffy, a father of seven, said said during an appearance on MSNBC's "The Rundown With José Díaz-Balart." "I know my kids best. I know what morals and values are right for my children. I think we should not have an oppressive state telling us what to do."

11:05 - That's an interesting scenario, but carry it to the next, logical step that Tillis omitted. Just what entity is going to require and enforce the posting of such sign? No way to assume that the Starbucks or other entity would gladly submit to posting such a sign on their own initiative, out of the goodness of their heart.

Guess it would have to be the nasty old government. Still regulation, just of a different law.

Backroom meetings at the capitol today. GOP gearing up to take out the anti-vaccine/tea party candidates. They aren't going to be blindsided like last year. Key target is Bumgars.

Anonymous said...

4:24 - don't know if you know what you are talking about, but hope you are correct. Tea Party ilk needs to be gone - and that certainly includes Bomgars. Personally don't think it covers Billingsby, but then again that's just a personal observation.

There are several folks recruited by the McNutt faction - generally kinfolk of the so-called leadership of the McNutts - that hopefully won't make it past go either, although they have learned from the master that 'passing go' is the way to collect their $200.

Anonymous said...

9:04 AM "No Denying It":

No, Will Longwitz is NOT Tea Party. Conservative, very much so, but NOT TP. Georgetown graduates do NOT do TP. His opponent, Billy Bill, OTOH, is certifiably a McNuts TP groupie.

Anonymous said...

Sounds like someone on here is trying their damnedest to tie Billingsley, Bomgar, and anyone else they don't like to a few loud wingnuts. I would be willing to bet they've never met either of these men. Point is, they are hardworking people who making a go at it politically. As far as I am aware, neither one of them have signed on to this anti-vaccine mess. If you don't agree with them on the issues that's fine, but spewing worthless conspiratorial garbage doesn't further the discussion at all.

I believe they are drinking that tea made from psychedelic mushrooms. That's the only explanation I can come up with.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
