Re: “Letters to the Editor

It's not far from a no-brainer. The vaccine has only been tested for five years. The rare virus may or may not be stopped by it. And yet, it's being hailed as a cure for cancer. There is also some speculation that it may result in infertility. That's a definite no-brainer for me.

Re: “Great expectations

Of course, in the pro-statist Independent Weekly, no one bothers to mention homeschooling. Fortunately, none of my children has autism. But if I'd continued to vaccinate, perhaps one or more would have. I sure wouldn't throw a child to the government wolves, no matter how "good" a school's reputation. Regardless, I suggest that the moms mentioned in this article and in the comments, along with the author of the article, read a bit of John Taylor Gatto and then think about having the government finance the education of their children. Whether or not my children are or become handicapped, I don't want any of them to accept money from government. Unfortunately, many moms don't understand the simple economics of "He or she who pays the piper selects the tune." These moms who are turning the education of their autistic children over to the government schools are setting themselves and their children up to be normalized or marginalized. The Independent Weekly acts as though this kind of thing is news. The quote about the laws of the federal government seems to imply that there should be stronger laws; the irony is that according to the U.S. Constitution (anybody remember that document?), the federal government has absolutely no business in the education of children. Read up, Moms!
