In fifth grade I was selected to be an altar boy. In a Catholic parish in the fifties, in Chicago or anywhere for that matter, this was a big deal. It was sort of like NFL draft day on ESPN. The priests and nuns were sizing us up to see if we heard "The Calling".
A major drawback to being selected was memorizing the entire mass in Latin, a living, breathing dead language. I remember having to recite the mass to my father one Saturday before I could go to the movies with my friends. It was cruel and unusual, but I managed to mumble my way through.
t the beginning of the mass the priest recited the "Confetitor", or Confession to God. He admits that he, and by extension all of us, has sinned in thought, word, and deed. Then he strikes his breast three times and says; "Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa." (Through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault).
NB: For a careful examination of Catholic theology you can listen to George Carlin's album; Class Clown.
I'm reminded of those days as the evidence continues to mount that vaccines are implicated in causing much of the autism epidemic. There are more and more Hannah Polings than previously thought and to the surprise of only the vaccine mongers, mitochondria disorder is not as rare as they suspected or are willing to admit.
So what's a government and Modern Medicine to do when their most holy of sacraments, mass vaccinations, is shown to have caused incalculable damage to possibly millions of infants? Do they bow their heads, beat their breasts three times and recite mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa?
Com'on! We're talking about the smartest guys on the block here. These are the guys that for years have denied any possible connection between a neurotoxin in vaccines and neurological damage in babies. These are the guys that think babies are tough enough to handle 10,000 or 100,000 vaccines at once. These guys are head and shoulders above us mere mortals. Just ask them.
For the most part, I think these guys have their heads up their asses.
To throw a bit more gasoline on the growing fire, the government announced a week or so ago that more voices should be added to making decisions regarding vaccine policy. Let's just hope the voices aren't from Merck, Sanofi, Eli Lily, the AAP or the CDC.
I'd like to nominate David Kirby, Dan Olmsted, and Barbara Loe Fisher as voices on any government panel discussing vaccine policy. These three people, and they are just three of the many more we all could name, know more about vaccines and the damage done than probably 99.9% of the doctors licensed to stick needles in babies.
The feds also need to pick a couple dozen moms and grandmothers and maybe a few dads from Environment of Harm, or one of the other Yahoo groups working to heal their kids and save future generations from the arrogant ignorance of the government bureaucrats, mad doctors, and Pharma zealots.
After all, isn't healing and saving what it's all about?
In spite of their multi billion dollar efforts to make us accept whatever discoveries modern medicine makes as gospel and inerrant, sort of like the Pope and the whole infallibility shtick, a lot of us know better.
Modern Medicine is full of sweathogs and is far from infallible. There have been too many screwballs and screw-ups for us to completely trust them anymore.
I'm still waiting for modern medicine to cure cancer, and for Jerry Lewis' telethons to cure Muscular Dystrophy. What about the billions we've donated to heart disease and diabetes? Where are those cures? I think the only thing that's been cured in the last few years has been Erectile Dysfunction. And where was the celebrity telethon for that deadly disorder? And why don't we have a "Walk for Restless Leg Syndrome"? That's a natural.
And if they're so damn good, how come they haven't cured the common cold?
If you read the newspapers or watch the evening news, you can't miss the steady drumbeat of corruption, deception, outright lies, and junk science coming out of the pharmaceutical industry.
They've stolen billions of tax dollars, bought hundreds, maybe thousands, of politicians, rigged countless elections with their dirty money, assaulted the reputations of anyone that challenged them, compromised science in the name of profit, and turned physicians into petty street corner drug pushers. And that's only what they've done to the U.S.
I may be naïve, but I believe that the day is soon coming when these guys are going to have to stand up in front of the people of the world, accept responsibility for the monumental damages they've done, and in a humble contrite voice, say; "Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa."
