HPV Vaccination Advocates "Harassing" Me: Medicine Hat Catholic School Trustee

Commented Oct 7, 2013 at 11:03:35 in Canada Alberta

“I guess you've never heard of the CDC!! According to their own stats, there were 1671 "serious" side effects reported between 2006 and 2013. If that number is insignificant to you then so be it. I think that vaccines are useful and necessary in many situations, but I think that this one should be voluntary and should not be given at such a young age.

“I am never on the side of Catholic schools or their trustees, however, in this case, I firmly support Mr. Grad's decision. If the government is paying for the vaccine, and the parents want it that badly to protect their potentially promiscuous children, then they should take the responsibility of bringing their children to the doctor's office to have the vaccine administered there. Why should vaccine administration be done in schools in the first place? Especially one that is "voluntary" and know to have significant side effects.”

“source for significant side effects please? i have yet to find one.”

Ian Llangan on Oct 7, 2013 at 02:16:31

“Not every parent is perfectly "responsible". If a taxpayer funded vaccine is out there, then taxpayer funded schools are an excellent location to do mass vaccinations - it is also cheaper on the health care system to do it that way. If the public is funding a school (or school board) through taxes, no podunk school official should be able to withhold availability of a vaccine. If a particular parent has an issue with their child getting vaccinated, they can write a letter to the principal asking their child to be exempted form the vaccination process. As long as that letter is copied to the child's doctor (and sent registered mail with return receipt) the doctor can make a note of it so that when the child becomes an adult, the provincial health care system can send them a reminder that the vaccine withheld by their parent(s) is available to them.”

“There is no reason that any journalist, anywhere in the world, under any regime, should go to jail for filming or photpgraphing anything, period, end of story. Governments around the world are slowly eroding the public's right to know and true freedom of information. Who cares whether journalists are left or right wing, foreign or domestic. This is 2014 and we should live in a civilized society where no government has to hide behind any type of censorship because everything they do should be for the benefit of the people. I don't care if I sound idealistic.”

“This is not about breastfeeding rights or supporting mothers and babies. I breastfed three children, but I never found the need to whip out my breasts in front of strangers in a public place. My body is private and I believed that breastfeeding was about the bond between myself and my baby. I think that some people are using this issue to make a point, and quite honestly, it is at the expense of their babies. If breastfeeding should be a quiet, bonding, nurturing activity, how is that accomplished in a loud, noisy place in front of strangers?”

Kansas mom on Aug 8, 2013 at 14:23:20

“If feeding a baby should "be a quiet, bonding, nurturing activity" then shouldn't bottle feeding moms be required to hide away as well? Are you saying that moms who feed "in a loud, noisy place in front of strangers" are not bonding or nurturing? I nursed all 5 of my kids in all types of places because babies need to nurse often & I was not going to be stuck in my house for making the biological standard choice to nurse my kids. When you are nursing 10-12 times a day not every feeding is going to be spent lovingly gazing into your newborns face. And of all the times I have nursed in my 14 year tenure as a nursing mom I have never "whipped it out" & I have also never used a nursing cover.”

kod478 on Aug 8, 2013 at 14:16:43

“You used a lot of "I" statements because it's a personal choice, meaning every mother can decide for themselves where and when she wants to breastfeed her child.”

Ebelskiver on Aug 8, 2013 at 14:06:47

“You have a very romantic and idealized notion of breastfeeding. Some people live in the real world and have to work breastfeeding in with their work schedules, errands, and other things that one usually has to deal with in life.”

“Absolutely NOT true.  Although a liberal arts degree is a waste of time imho, a medical/dental/Master's etc is marketable and pays well, yet you don't even get started until your late 20's early 30's and you have TONS of debt to get rid of before you actually start making money.  ”

“So a woman who gets cheated on gets criticized as being intense, creepy and ominous for this very humorous letter? How misogynistic is that?!?!?!?”

“No one is "criticizing" this female, we are pointing out that crime has taken place, period. It's not a value judgement, it's the law.”

“All we know is she found a message from another girl on facebook. The fact that everyone jumps to the conclusion that he must have cheated on her screams of misandry, if anything. She acted immaturely out of spiteful revenge, apparently, and you would come to her defense without knowing any of the facts other than she obviously broke the law. Again, we do no know all of the facts; she very well could be showing considerable restraint, but that does not justify her actions beyond breaking off the relationship.”

“So how would this affect someone who is just about to pay off their remaining mortgage while still in their early 40s?”

North of Toronto on May 13, 2013 at 17:04:05

“Moving from 35 to 25 years amortization is roughly equivalent to increasing the mortgage rate from 3.0% to 4.5%.”

North of Toronto on May 13, 2013 at 17:02:09

“I doubt the banks could adjust your 35 year mortgage to 25 years. They could be required to issue all "new" mortgages at 25 years.

Besides on a $400,000 mortgage @3.00% the monthly payment would only increase from $1,600 to $1,895 if amortized over 35 years from 25. This isn't going to crash the markets.”

LittleBird89 on May 13, 2013 at 16:24:39

“You're fine unless you want to sell in the near future, the worth of your house will probably drop. But having a mortgage almost paid off you wouldn't be in the hot water that some people just starting and in a house they wouldn't have been able to afford without a 5% down 40 year mortgage. Its on the consumer to know what they can and can't afford but as humans its hard not to be tempted out of our comfort zone. Banks need to put their foot down on people who could ruin their lives with mortgage debt.”

“Personal responsibility. I am a teacher. On the very first day that I was teaching a class, I saw a group of boys snickering when a certain girl walked into the room. During class they played a prank on her which they apparently had played repeatedly on her the previous semester. Well, whatever they got away with for months, they didn't get away with for minutes with me. As a teacher I will not let any of my students be bullied nor will I be bullied. If that behaviour occurred within minutes of the class starting, I can only imagine what that girl endured for an entire semester. When I told administration, they handled it immediately and the offending parties were removed from the class. No child should be bullied in or out of school. Adults know exactly what is going on. Teachers know and parents know. But when the offenders act all innocent and say "it was just a joke" NEVER believe them because it is NEVER a joke.”
