    The nutty, anti-science anti-vaxxers are accomplishing what they want - KILLING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE!!!!!!1!111!!!!!!!

    Of course, I'm kidding. But that's a similar mindset to what the crazy conspiracy-laden anti-vaxxers believe.

    The number of U.S. measles cases has reached 839 in 23 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Monday in a weekly update, as outbreaks in parts of the country showed no sign of slowing down.

    The total is 75 more cases than the CDC reported a week ago. This year is the nation’s worst for measles in 25 years, and with seven months still to go in 2019, it is getting closer to topping the 963 cases reported in 1994.​

    Measles Outbreaks, Up to 839 Cases, Show No Sign of Slowing

    Hey, measles were good enough for us as kids what makes you think today's humans shouldn't have the privilege.

    Jonah's dad died from measles on Veep last week.

    It was hilarious.

    Why not thank all the unscreened illegals being scattered to the four corners of the nation?

    Except there are more blue state anti-vaxxers than red state anti-vaxxers, with Oregon leading the way and the, there are more strict compliance red states than blue states with Mississippi and West Virginia leading the way. Are Liberals or Conservatives More Anti-Vaccine? | RealClearScience

    It's the reds in the blue states. Antivaxxers used to be hippie types. No longer, now they are Alex Jones listening conspiracy theorist. In other words, conservatives.

    I am sure you believe that. The Jewish Orthodox Community in NYC is currently leading the pack in the current outbreak, however
