"So Autism Is Even MORE Common Than Last Year. Who Cares?" - Page 2

post #21 of 33

Yes, all good citizens never liter.

 

And always remember that you need two capital B.'s when outlining.

 

Honestly, I have seen some notices from schools, you know, those tax supported institutions of learning, wherein there are regularly several spelling mistakes, punctuation errors and grammar problems. Who is writing these notices?  Who is proofreading them? These people are teaching YOUR children. Make them accountable.

I live near where Dr. Hickie has his practice and our grade school is one of the schools he is talking about. I really think he is delusional, he knew that the kids with exemption were taken out of school at the beginning of November. Pertussis kept spreading, so much so that the health department extended the exclusion of exempt kids two more times. For two months the entire school population was completely up to date on their vaccines and it still kept spreading. The exempt kids didn't go back until the second week of January, but somehow it is magically still the unvaccinated kids fault.

Good citizens: Voting puts good people into office. :rotflmao

What happens if there are no good people running to vote for?

He is most definitely delusional. :flipped

Yes, that was the implication from not arguing.  Just comply, no discussion. We know what is best for you. We have spent years in school learning about your immune system and drugs and vaccines. You know nothing, you peasant, so be quiet and roll up your sleeve.

Good citizens don't use the metric system? And why is that listed under things good citizens do???

I have no personal experience on that one, but I am wondering what it would look like if there had never been an autism/vaxx connection. If the sacred cow of medicine had never been brought up as a possibility for the increase, would we treat these families differently? Would they be more important to us? Or would we continue to scream "better diagnosing"?

That's right, just shut up and do as you are told.

 

As an aside, the UK is thinking about bringing in 9 hour school days under the guise of 'better education' and allowing mothers to return to the workforce.

John Taylor Gatto and some homeschoolers have a similar idea about the public school system and its beginnings training children to be molded to work in a factory.

Children should be taught skills to make them employable from primary school age, suggests Chambers of Commerce

Yes, Mirzam.

 

The Child Labor Amendment was introduced and began to be circulated among the states in 1924. It has no end date and has not passed. Why aren't children still in the workplace. What happened was that high school began to be more socially acceptable. Most states set laws in place to protect children in the workplace - CA's schooling laws address circumstances of child actors.  In my family, only my Father finished high school by day in 1932; he was the baby.  His older brothers and sister finished by going to class during the night and going to work during the day.

 

However, before that time, if anyone finished eight years of school, they could leave, get an apprenticeship or work on the farm. They had enough skills to start a small business or be a worthy assistant. If a person left early, there was social pressure to get some kind of work and stick with it.

How do I know?  I have old copies of the McGuffy Readers. They are designed to be finished in 6-8 yrs. The last book would be considered college level now. I can imagine the arithmetic skills would be just as lofty.

 

I know that many people did not master their skills in eight years and there are late bloomers, but there was an incentive to learn and learn well.

That's a really good question.

I suspect that they would be treated similar to families of people with "mental disorders." They would be encouraged--or maybe required--to incarcerate and/or medicate their family members, with repeated pats on the head and comments like, "there's no shame in asking for help."

I'm wondering how many doctors who blamed vaccines for their child's autism were accused of things like Munchausen's-by-proxy?
