Aspie with Attitude

Sure, I'm just another Southern Recovering Alcoholic NPR- and Sweet-Tea Addicted Comic Mom with Asperger's in the SFV, but I can tell you now that I don't necessarily fit the stereotype.

Government-Mandated Profits

Apparently, it's not enough for pharmaceutical companies to own every other television commercial these days. No, somehow that manuever doesn't quite provide enough profits for the giant companies. What they must do instead is to mandate vaccines, making it very difficult for children to avoid them. Then the government provides money for those who can't afford the vaccines, money that we provide as taxpayers. In most states, religious or medical exemptions are required. But in a free country, shouldn't parents be the judge? Shouldn't every parent read as much information as necessary and then decide what's best for the family involved? Ah, but when have we lived in a free country?
