    Just playing devil's advocate, where in the Constitution does it say government should be in the immunization program business?? All this could, would, should, might, maybe, scare tactics is costing us millions a year. I refuse to take the shots and haven't died yet.

    In the past year, California has experienced the worst whooping cough outbreak in more than 50 years, an epidemic that has killed 10 infants and resulted in 6,400 reported cases.

    Advocates warn that cutting back on vaccine education and availability could help increase the likelihood of future outbreaks of such diseases—and reduce the government's ability to respond effectively to contain such outbreaks when they occur.

    The House GOP's 2011 budget would chop $156 million from the Centers for Disease Control's funding for immunization and respiratory diseases. The GOP reductions are likely to hit the CDC's support for state and local immunization programs.

    You are fine because others are immunized. Therefore they can't get you sick. I hate needles but I still get shots.

    I am a shareholder of Halliburton.
    What's your freaking problem?
    Their employees have more "boots on the ground" than you do - so STFU and enjoy your freedoms.

    Too bad KBR and Haliburton couldn't send some QUALILFIED electricians when they sent their "boots on the ground". Glad to see that capitalism is your #1 priority, even at the expense of our troops!:clap2:

    "combinied 47 years"

    COMBINIED?

    Stupid much?

    In any event - your tax dollars? Hell, I probably pay more in taxes every year than you earn, welfare case.

    And I don't give a shit what your father and brother served - you haven't served shit, Chickenhawk. So, STFU.
