enjoyed it, but it 'causes me to ask why are the chicken pox vaccine and flu shot so critical? Suck it up, I had chicken pox, hubby had it twice, definitely had flu before, still kicking. I know you're going to tell me that people die from these things, and ask if I wear a seat belt :) but people die from bee stings and maybe food poisoning - I'd have to find documentation on that - too.

Amen. Great article.

Also...I would imagine that both flu and chicken pox vaccines might be cheaper than taking care of massive epidemics of flu, and not only protect those who could make it through OK, but also those who wouldn't...like tiny new babies etc. And people do die of food poisoning occasionally but a lot of people would die of the flu without vaccines. We are just lucky enough to live in a time where we don't remember those days.

sorry...I currently have the flu, and I am really wishing I had gotten my flu shot.

My younger brother Jeff is the shame of the Degan family. He not only lives in France, he actually likes it there. He has a French wife and two gorgeous little French daughters. Honestly I think the guy is a closet commie. Back in August, in a letter to his fellow countrymen and women regarding health care, he ended it by saying:

"In short, in the US, you pay more, get less, and die younger than we do in Europe. What part of that don't you understand?"

Well, hey there! That's a danged good question! What part of that don't we understand? Why is it that so many of us have to be dragged, kicking and screaming like half-witted little preschoolers, into the brave new world of change? What the hell is the matter with us anyway? How can it be that such a huge number of Americans cheerfully join movements of mass stupidity and salivate on cue to the sound of Dr. Glenn "Pavlov" Beck's bell? It kind of makes you wonder, huh?
