(Note: SB277 passed the health committee 12-6 yesterday and moves forward.) For years and even decades a small group of us have been slaving away, day after day, to get the word out that the vaccine program is now a huge problem and that our kids have been victims of "the greater good." For years we have been calling out from the bottom of the large chasm that we have fallen into for others not to come this way, to stay of the dangerous path that we didn't know better than to follow. But it has been hard work as we have so few resources and become so removed from the mainstream because of our children's vaccine injuries, so only those very close to us could hear our cries.
But this year, you came through for us. Not since Evan McCarthy and Hannah Poling have we had such a huge advancement in our work and progress in getting out our message. Because you have made such boldly corrupt moves, and told such bold face lies, and made the most absurd arguments, we now have families in all parts of the American experience coming out of the woodwork to join us! And they have megaphones that we didn't have!
We now have soccer moms, and crunchy moms, and NASCAR dads, and political power players, and outspoken black leaders, and Hollywood beautiful people, and smart physicians, and rebel libertarians, and that dude at the grocery store that I have been going to for 9 years, and never spoken to more than, "Do you guys have any more lemon yerba mate tea in the back?" who said to me last week, "Hey... thanks for doing all the stuff on vaccines you have been doing. I had not felt good about them for a while..."
And today I just heard a mom with a perfectly healthy child tell the California Legislature, with a big loud megaphone, in front of at least a thousand other moms, "We are awake now, and we are never going back."
And I cried.
I am so, so tired. So broke. So empty. And you have sent me so many reinforcements. From the bottom of my heart thank you. Thank you.
Thank you to California Senator Dr. Richard Pan for telling such easily fact check-able lies about vaccines that people know you are a fraud and say things like, "That guy is a pediatrician?"
Thank you to Oregon Senator Dr. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward for being so arrogant and elitist that you actually admitted in a committee hearing, on camera that you think you should have medical choice for your baby and the peasants beneath you should not.
Thank you to Senator Jeff Tarte of North Carolina for being so mean and nasty that it was clear to everyone that you don't actually give a crap about families, and that your bill had nothing to do with the actual well being of children.
Thank you to Representative Ralph Tucker of my own town of Brunswick, Maine for offering nothing but fear based arguments, completely free of facts, so everyone could see that your bill was not even remotely relevant to reality.
But mostly I have to thank you all for working so hard to get us back into a court room! For years we have lamented that we have had our 7th amendment rights removed and decried the fact that we have not been able to get the injustice done to us in front of a jury as our founders intended. Pan et. al. has once again given us a shot at public hearings with actual court procedures! As Dr. Toni Bark proclaimed from the steps of the California Capitol before the latest hearing on SB 277, "Even if we don't prevail today, we will have lawsuits and the lawsuits will allow us to have discovery and we get to subpoena people, and they have no idea the shit storm that is coming! They will become victims of their own legislation."
I thought court was a pipe dream. I thought getting the liars under oath and cross examining them would never happen. Not only is that suddenly a possibility, it is our supposed "opponents" who are handing it to us. Is PanCo. secretly on our side? Are they blowing this up so monumentally that the system finally collapses on itself? You have to wonder... why would they make moves that only hastens the exposure of all the corruption and opens the court system up to us?
So in conclusion, to all the physician legislators who have been pushing these bills, thank you for not even bothering to spend a hour online fact checking yourselves, or us and our arguments, so that you would make false claim after false claim for us to mow down with such ease. Thank you for never reading a vaccine package insert so you could look so ignorant in front of the public. Thank you for not even googling "Vaccine Injury Compensation Program" so all those moms who used to look funny at us for not vaccinating suddenly realize that we DID know more than our doctors. Thank you for staying tucked inside your ivory tower holding mutual admiration society meetings for decades so you don't even know what not to say to show your bias and stupidity. It is my earnest hope that you are equally as bold in civil proceedings with your claims, and line up to testify in court, under oath and penalty of perjury, to be cross examined by... well anyone... a hungry lawyer trying to make his mark, any random mom reading this right now, the guy who checks me out at the grocery store, or me. Can it be me? OMG... please let it be me!
Your acts have advanced our cause more than you will ever understand. And all it has cost us is the lives, health, functioning and independence of the children that we love with all our souls. But of course, as we have learned from you, that is a small price to pay for the advancement of a greater good, right?
Ginger Taylor, MS is an uppity brat that does not know her place. She has some titles and stuff, but we assume she bribed someone to get them, because honestly, we don't kow why anyone would listen to her. She is really just a mom.
