What a lovely way to start my day. The "science hasn't caught up yet" by not proving a negative.

Face desk.

Part of me empathizes with parents who are looking for answers about why this has happened to their child.

But then I realize that these people are the subset of those parents who are so dumb and/or gullible that they are risking the health of not just their own child but of everyone else's children as well. Then I just want to smack 'em upside the head.

I CANNOT believe this. This has been an issue that i have seen divide the left. You can go on huff post after they publish an anti vaccine article and watch a war with pro vaccine liberals on one side and a mix of Anti vaccine liberals and Ron Paul Libertarians on the other side. That should have been a hint to the liberal anti vaxer's right there. When you find yourself on the same side as the crazy, anti leftist Ron Paul Libertarians and anti science conservatives that normally viciously troll the site, You should be feeling some red flags.

I have Asperger's Syndrome, a mild form of Autism and find it sad how many parents trust celebrities more than doctors when it comes to the health of their children.

For Lizards dealing with autism, here's a link to an educator (with an autistic daughter) writing on the use of Kindles:

Nice to meet someone else with AS here, and I agree with you strongly here. Such a shame.

They side with the crazy because they want to feel superior to conventional Western medicine. It's a odd cultural twist in some places and it crosses party lines. So areas like Orange County are not badly affected by the anti-vax mania, whereas some anti science Southern areas are. Likewise, strongly Democratic poor parts of California are not much affected, but wealthy Marin County is ground zero for anti-vaxers.

I hope the NJ state legislature kills this bill. Failing that, Gov. Christy should veto it.
