No, you just didn't read the nonexistent warning label carefully enough to understand.

Don't waste your money on those silly-assed homeopathic belladonna pills. If your young 'un is having a hard time with teething pain, just hit him upside the head with an all-natural rock. The pain in the side of his head will make him forget all about the teething pain. Problem solved. :yup:

Just hit him upside the head with a porcupine. Picking out all those quills will certainly divert his attention! :laugh:

It's curious why the FDA would advise not to give children these tablets because there may be a correlation with adverse events, yet mandate that every single child in the entire country get 49 doses of vaccine (69 by the age of 18) when there there is a very strong correlation (not causation) that vaccines may be responsible for serious or life threatening events in some children. So much hypocrisy. Wonder if it has to do with the bottom line. :yup:

A rather dramatic expansion of the FDA's statutory authority happened while we were sleeping last night! :freakout:

What does the functioning of the administrative state have to do with a set of symptoms that appear in both situations, yet one is implicated as being the culprit (although often given at the same time vaccines are given) and the other is "just a coincidence." Do you see the problem here, or are you just too blind?

peacegirl, from where did you derive your claim that "the FDA . . . mandate[s] that every single child in the entire country get 49 doses of vaccine (69 by the age of 18)"?

The exemptions are shrinking. If Hillary wins it could turn into a federal mandate just like in California where the only exemption is a proven medical condition, otherwise you cannot go to public school. They already have people knocking on doors to check on the children's vaccination status and if they're not up to date they are prepared to inject them on the spot. It makes me cringe at the thought.

If you made up the claim - and you did - then please just say so.

I don't know, peacegirl, you're the one making up dumb shit about the FDA " mandat[ing] that every single child in the entire country get 49 doses of vaccine (69 by the age of 18)."

However, in the interest of sport, I'll take a crack at answering your question, peacegirl!

Line up 50 people who will not move, and a dog, from a slight distance away cannot identify the FDA Commissioner. If the FDA that every single child in the entire country get 49 doses of vaccine (69 by the age of 18), then he would recognize the FDA Commissioner instantly as he can from sound and smell...

You just can't seem to stay on topic. You'd rather crack jokes at my expense, of course. It's interesting to observe how good you and Maturin are at deflecting, just so you can make a joke out of everything I post. That's why I can't stay.

peacegirl, I thought you would agree the proof by dog eyes is a powerful one. I am amazed that you are so ready to dismiss it without even understand its foundation. I think you need to spend more time studying the Authentic Text; you've internalized your corruptions in the Corrupted Text!

peacegirl, you claimed without any prompting whatsoever that "the FDA . . . mandate[s] that every single child in the entire country get 49 doses of vaccine (69 by the age of 18)." The claim - which is false, by the way - was central to the point you were trying to make. That being true, how does asking you to back up that claim qualify as "deflecting"?
