California Senate Bill 277 has passed through the Judiciary Committee, and needs another Committee’s rubber stamp before it arrives on the Senate floor for debate—and what looks like a ride into law.
Governor Brown will sign the Bill. Brown has become a standard fool. He’s worn out. Whatever interesting ideas he may have entertained in his former “moonbeam” incarnation are gone in the wind.
Bill277 eliminates the personal belief and religious exemptions from vaccination. It also states that children cannot attend public or private school unless they are vaccinated according to the State’s schedule.
Medical exemptions are still allowed, but these won’t be easy to come by, because physicians who grant them will be scrutinized and harassed.
In Committee, before the vote, the Bill was changed to offer two compromises. Personal belief exemptions will be permitted for all future vaccines, beyond the current 10 mandated shots. And children who are now in school will be allowed to forego vaccination (with some limitations).
Eventually, in years to come, you can expect these two “gifts” to be rescinded.
All in all, personal freedom and choice are gone.
Vaccine manufacturers are popping the champagne corks.
For those California parents who are looking for a way out, there is home-schooling. But you can be sure that, at some point up the road, those children will be falsely blamed for “an outbreak,” and pressure will build to force them to take shots.
This Bill is going to become law, unless there is huge uprising of parents between now and the final legislative vote.
Seen in a larger context, the Bill is one element in a thousand-element program that standardly proclaims: if you want security and protection, you must give up your freedom.
Of course, as I’ve pointed out before, this program always overstates the threat from which one needs protection. In fact, quite often, the same agents of the State who offer that protection manufactured the threat in the first place.
In the case of vaccines, the preposterous notion that vaccinated children (who are purported to be immune) need shielding from unvaccinated children is a contradiction on its face.
So is the idea that children who live in poverty, lack nutritious food, and consequently function on grossly weakened immune systems can gain substitute-protection via vaccines. The reverse is true: vaccinations attack their already-compromised level of health.
In any event, parents seeking their own information about vaccines becomes a useless fantasy under this new California Bill. Everything is decided for them by the State.
In case you want to place all the blame on Big Pharma and its undue influence, keep in mind that government is where the buck is supposed to stop. This is the place where officials can say no if they want to.
Letting them off the hook as helpless victims of corporate power is absurd. They aren’t helpless. They go to the slaughter willingly. Sometimes, with deeper pockets.
Vaccination=protection is the equation that has been shoved down the throats of the population. And to back it up, we have the ever-popular, “This is science. Only crazy people oppose science.”
Ever since 9/11, protection has risen as the most important government theme: “Let us protect you, let us do our jobs, keep your mouths shut and everything will turn out well.”
People buy it. Their minds are vacuums, and they need something to fill it. Might as well be “protection.” Seems important. Seems right.
Seems like the sort of thing a parent is supposed to provide.
“Yes, I remember as a child that Daddy told me (or I wish he had) that everything would be all right. When the government tells me that now, it feels good.”
So does an endless supply of tranquilizers. Until it doesn’t.
Until the brain turns to mush.
