Measles Outbreak in Oregon

Looks like our know-nothing friends who oppose vaccines are paying a price in Oregon.The Salt Lake Tribune reported:


A quickly escalating measles outbreak around Portland, Oregon, has led health officials in nearby Clark County, Washington, to declare a public health emergency as they warn that people infected with the highly contagious virus since the beginning of the year have visited schools and churches, a dentist’s office, an Amazon locker pickup station, a Costco, and an Ikea....

At the beginning of last week, there were only a handful of confirmed cases. On Friday, the day the emergency was declared, there were 19. By Sunday, that number had grown to 21. The latest update came Tuesday, when county officials said they had confirmed 23 cases and were investigating two more suspected cases. The vast majority of those who have fallen ill had not been immunized...

State data shows that 7.9 percent of children in Clark County were exempted in the 2017-18 school year from vaccines required for kindergarten entry, which includes the two-dose course for measles that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is 97 percent effective. Only 1.2 percent of the children had a medical dispensation, meaning that nearly 7 percent were not immunized for personal or religious reasons. Nationally, about 2 percent of children went without required immunization for nonmedical reasons....  Rest of article.

Hope you're happy.

They are likely all trumptards. The ignorance in this country is growing at an alarming rate.

KingFish,
Did any of the unvaxxed kids that got infected with measles have autism or gender dysphoria? And are they now naturally immune to measles? Checkmate pro-vaxxers!

The survivors are now stronger than their vaxxed peers and their superior genetics will make the human race stronger.

It’s hard to imagine that a president of the United States could peddle this dangerous garbage. He literally has the blood of children on his hands.

What does Trump have to do with anti vaccine morons?

11:17 Your ignorance was quickly displayed.

Trump has repeatedly and falsely claimed there is a link between vaccines and autism.

Where is the outrage about the blood on the hands of the butchers at Planned Parenthood?

It is also well documented the numbers of illegal aliens infected with disease and parasites that make their way into the population due to the lack of border security.

The blood of dead children more on the hands of the traitors in the Democrat party.

Now you can abort the day before the due date. And if the child is born during the procedure, the infanticide is legal.

"Trumptards" get their children vaccinated. It's the far out liberals who don't vax.

The good news is that the far right’s crusade against science will eventually lead to survival of the fittest and we will all be much better off when they are gone. There will be a lot of innocent lives lost until then, but in the long term it is one of the few positive changes we can look forward to. I plan to offer thoughts and prayers to all the anti vaxxer climate change deniers out there when their own ignorance causes their demise.

The right isn't at war with science. Scientists just decided follow the tax money offered by the Cultural Marxists in the Democrat party to enact radical social engineering.

Two genders is science, trans non-ninary gender fluid pronouns are social engineering.
Cyclical climate change based on Milankovitch Cycles is science, Anthropogenic Climate change using manipulated computer models is leftist religious belief.

The only war on science and reality is on the left.

Tell that to all the kids who aren't allowed to have peanut butter at school because one little mutant in the class will die if he even smells a tree nut.

Survival of the fittest would mean nobody accommodates that mutant and his genes are removed from the pool.

By the way, tree nut alert has been associated with bad batches of vaccine.

Only a truly sick person would refer to a child as a mutant. Get help.

Antivaxers are both left and right - both EXTREME left and right. It seemed to start with the extreme left in the northeast and northwest - of course the anti-vax crowd in Oregon is NO WAY right wing. However, in this state they are the extreme right led by Angela Hill with the freedom from vaccine bills.

I’m assuming that since you are attacking Senator Hill, you arie opposed to MS having the same exemptions that almost every other state has. I’m not an anti vaxxer, but why shouldn’t MS offer the same exemptions that other, more civilized states do?

Kingfish said...

Quite a few public health experts have said Mississippi has the best vaccine laws in the country. But of course, let's go screw it up.

You know, maybe that should happen. Maybe what needs to happen is for some kids to die after you have your way. We've grown soft and forgotten what biological scourges truly are. Reading old newspapers about pandemics and epidemics don't convey the same experience as actual experience. Maybe we need to experience some good ole fashioned death and paralysis before the lessons are taken to heart once again.

Angela Hill has never cared about science.

She is only motivated by votes.

The swimming lake at the zoo was closed due to polio. Vaccines won that battle.

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.

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.
