By the time you read this, the Vaccine = Autism published by the BJM will be old news (Yes, I do write a bunch of rants at once and have them post at a later date). However lets take a closer look at this whole situation.
Lets keep in mind that I don’t belittle Autism or think its “not important”. I’m hoping to not only find out what the cause is, but how to prevent it. Autism, like Down Syndrome, happens and we aren’t sure exactly why or how. Take a look at how many drugs are out there (that kill people no less) that the mechanism of action is “Undetermined”. Are you throwing a shit-fest over those? No. Is some random dipshit actor standing on his/her soapbox about that? Nope.
First off, Jenny McCarthy. The woman who is best known for her blond hair and big fake tits speaks the gospel about how vaccines contribute to autism. The whole fact that people LISTEN and BELIEVE her shit makes me want to blow the brains out of 99% of society. She should stick to what she does best, being being eye-candy. We don’t need “actors” to be the voice of medicine, politics, or anything else that they know jack and shit about. Lets be realistic, if you listen (and believe) any non-medically trained person’s bullshit about medicine, you are an idiot. Do I ask the random homeless guy on the street how to fix the breaker box in my house? No. Do people come into my store and ask me how to replace the water-pump in their Escalade? No. However some random dipshit actor “speaks out” on a topic and people run and proclaim the word like it was given by Oprah herself. Yes, it sucks that her child is autistic. It sucks that /any/ child is autistic. However it sucks MORE that kids need to suffer a preventable diseases because their mom listens to such propaganda given by a non-medically trained person. I’m sorry Jenny, but I am no longer fapping to pictures of you out of sheer disappointment. I hope we can still be friends.
Second on the chopping block, the Lancet. I had somewhat high regard for the Lancet, having used their studies while I was in school. How in the hell could they let such a bullshit study be published? A study group of 12? A high school science project has more people in their study group! But oh-no, its the whole “think of the children” mentality that got this clusterfuck of a study published vs good logical science. Good going Lancet, now you can “think of the children” as the unwashed idiots don’t immunize their children and they die a preventable death. I’m planning on releasing a study showing how Vicodin and Soma use cause laziness and stupidity. My sample size is 20, I hope you publish my study.
Third, and most favorite: Andrew Wakefield. Dude, when you publish a study with a sample group of 12 on a medication that MILLIONS and MILLIONS of people have received without incident, didn’t you take a step back and think to yourself “Man, maybe something is a bit wrong”. No, you didn’t. You published your bullshit to the Lancet, got your 20 seconds of fame, freaked the fuck out of a bunch of ignorant dipshits because you are were a licensed Doctor and thereby had the inherit trust that goes along with the degree. If you were selling penis pumps (because thats really all you can do now), I wouldn’t even buy one of those from you because your study group would be 12 men who used it! You did a huge disservice to the profession of medicine. Your fellow colleagues hate you, nurses and pharmacists hate you, and to be completely blunt you and the Lancet should be brought up on criminal charges for the damage you have done. You should go have sex with Jenny McCarthy so maybe the common sense recessive trait could be expressed in your children.
Fourth (and finally) the parents who refuse to immunize because of Autism: I’m a parent – so this hits close to home. To be completely honest its not the job of the government nor any governmental authority to make you vaccinate your child. Its your child, you can do whatever you want. However, that being said, if your child develops any preventable disease because you decided to listen to an ACTOR via the INTERNET vs listening to your DOCTOR (I can see how you can confuse the two, they end in -CTOR) YOU should receive zero state aid while the CHILD gets the treatment he/she deserves on our dime (its not the child’s fault their parents are dipshits, so why should they get shafted out of treatment?). That’s right, no welfare or any public assistance for YOU because YOU decided to not listen to someone who deals medicine for a living. You can sleep soundly in bed listening to your child squeal with pertussis knowing full well they won’t get the evil Autism because of your good judgment. Right after that, please stick a road-flare up your vagina, because we don’t need more idiots like you breeding.
I will commend BJM to putting an end to this madness, unfortunately its too little too late. The damage has been done, the lines have been drawn, and you aren’t going to change the opinion of the uneducated idiots. After all, you are just a “propaganda machine for big Pharma”. Oh, and calling Jenny McCarthy an actor is a stretch, even in my book.
But wait! Theres more! For your enjoyment, straight from YouTube, I present my heros Penn (he should have been a Pharmacist!) and Teller’s episode of Bullshit about this very subject:
- Paying the PBM’s to service them.
- Im dreaming of a Crackhead Christmas.
- SOMABOTS, TRANSFORM!
- A pharmacist example for non-pharmacists.
- Trying to not kill your patients.
- An open letter to my patients.
- The FDA obviously hates the public and needs to lay off the crack pipe.
- How to make your pharmacy career less painful.
