SHOULD WE KEEP JENNY’s VIEW OFF “THE VIEW?”
SHOULD WE KEEP JENNY’s
VIEW OFF “THE VIEW?”
A Cranky opinion for
Cranky Opinion Saturday
The following is the opinion of a
cranky old man.Opposing opinions are
welcome (wrong, but welcome) but please, no name calling, and that means you,
you big stupid head!
Here is a
rip roaring issue that I woke up to this morning; Jenny McCarthy is replacing
Elizabeth Hasslebeck on “The View.”
gives a fig!
Ms. McCarthy has an opinion that is counter to prevailing medical science.Jenny believes that early childhood vaccines
are responsible for increased cases of children with autism.Medical experts fear that if she expresses
her view, thousands of young mothers will follow Jenny off the cliff of skepticism
and not vaccinate their children.Because of this, they predict thousands of children will die.
experts have disproven beyond a shadow of doubt that vaccinations are not the
cause of the rise in autism cases in this country.Who do I believe, medical experts who say it is a proven fact that vaccinations do not cause autism, or Jenny
McCarthy, who though she is not an idiot, she plays one on TV.
A fact is simply something that has yet to be disproven.Doctors and big pharm have everything to lose
if it is proven that their vaccinations cause autism.Is their research flawed; probably not, but
there is plenty of incentive to disprove the theory that Jenny and others
experts learned why autism is so common today?I don’t think so.Perhaps it is
just more accurate diagnoses, or maybe something has changed from how we raise our
infants. One change is the number of vaccinations, and the early age for these vaccinations.
It scares me
to think that immature brains are subjected to vaccines for multiple diseases
before they are even six months old.We
have very few cases today (make that zero) of polio.Maybe we should hold off on that vaccine
until a child is several years old; ditto for rubella, measles, chickenpox, and
whooping cough.I would suggest whooping
cough vaccine first as that is currently a fairly common illness which is very
dangerous for infants.
I am not a
doctor and neither is Jenny, but doctors are not gods, and their proven science
changes often.In the past they fought
for bloodletting, early amputations, electric shock therapy, and lobotomies.If anything, this fear that Jenny McCarthy’s
opinions, if allowed to be expressed on “The View,” will cause the deaths of
thousands of infants makes me more wary of their position on early vaccination
injections for infants.
believe we need to fear opinions in this country, and “The View” is just a dumb
opinion show.It is for
entertainment.Hell, Whoopi talked about
her theory that the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center was done by our own government to make
an excuse to attack Iraq, or reelect George Bush or some nonsense, and no one
voiced any concern that she would turn “The View’s” vast audience into a mass
of idiotic conspiracy nuts.
If the soup
of vaccinations delivered to infants is good safe policy, I really don’t think
we need to silence the Jenny McCarthy’s of our country.I am more worried about why medical experts
are worried about the opinions of a blonde entertainer who once asked if
“Buffalo Wings” really come from buffalos.
The preceding has been the opinion of
a cranky old man, and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky
