vaccines, Sherri J Tenpenny

The presentation of this DVD was very much like going back to nursing school: very dry, and informative. I wish I would have had this video when I wrote my last paper in nursing school on vaccines. At the time I gave them a glowing recommendation. However, having been in the field a few years, and having done a little more research I can't give them a the 100% recommendation I gave before. The amount of information from the pro and anti vaccination camps can be confusing to anyone. I can't tell you (nor should I) what is best for you and your family. What I can tell you is that you have to do your own research and check every fact. Remember, all healthcare decisons need to be an informed decision. One can only do this when they hear the benefits vs. the risks of any decision. I personally read all the handouts I had available to me at the clinic I worked at. Needless to say I was not impressed by them. I found them grossly incomplete when listing potential risks. If your considering whether to vaccinate or not to vaccinate you need to make an informed decision. This DVD is a good place to start. However, you really do need to obtain information from both sides. Then and only then can you truly make an informed decision. Please do your research.

As a side note I brought my child in to get his 12 month child check. The clinic I went to just wanted me to sign a form getting the vaccinations (a limited amount of vaccines as a compromise between my wife and myself). No handouts, no benefits vs. risks. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. Even though I feel the information sheets are grossly inadequate the healthcare providers office should allow you to read them and ask questions, and this should be done prior to vaccination.

IRS to implement Federal Health Care?


Above is a link to an excellent article on how national health care would be implemented via the IRS. That should scare anyone! Below is my comment to this article as featured on my facebook page (I commented on the link I posted to the article). I hope you will take the time to read this article.

I don't want expensive health care costs, and I certainly don't want anyone going broke to try to pay for their own health. However, one must remember that the government helped increase those health care costs. You don't hire the mob to decrease violence in your city, and you don't trust the government to solve the health care crisis they helped create in the first place.

Your kiddin me!!!


The state of Hawaii just passed a law that makes it illegal to have body odor. You can be fined or put in jail. Good to know that a pedophile can get out in three weeks but B.O. will get you extended jail time. Nice...

Don't change your mind

My wife went to her dental appointment today. The dental assistant told her a story. She was turning into a local grocery store. She turned into the parking lot, saw that it was packed, and decided to come back the next day. She pulled out onto the street. She was immediately pulled over by THE LAW... Police officer: "Mam, do you know why I pulled you over?" Dental Assistant: "No." Police Officer: "You pulled into that parking lot without shopping. That's trespassing." She was given a $249.00 dollar ticket. Nice....

Only if your credit sucks

My wife and I have been trying to obtain a loan for an addition/renovation on our house. Nope!!! They are still giving out loans to NEW FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS but not to two individuals with credit scores above 750. We have never had a late payment and have an impeccable record of showing responsibility. However, suspect first time home buyers are welcome.... Nice to see we learned our lesson from the last housing disaster.
