The Law of Unintended Consequences strikes again. Two California state lawmakers are going to introduce legislation to eliminate a “personal belief exemption” that allows California parents to refuse to vaccinate their children.
Not to be outdone, in Washington, D.C., California’s two Democratic senators, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, are urging state health officials to consider eliminating the “religious exemption.”
This is another knee-jerk reaction of “Liberals Know Best” when, in fact, they miss the boat yet again. The outbreak of measles across the nation that created this “necessity” is not because children are not being vaccinated. It is because our political leaders made a terrible decision in the summer of 2014. But for now, they will camouflage the reason with rhetoric they are doing it “for the children.” Bull. They are doing it to gain more control of our lives.
I started this blog referring to the law of unintended consequences but I am not referring to the proposed legislation. The unintended consequence stems from President’s Obama’s decision to allow 50,000 illegal immigrant children into the country back in the summer in 2014.
The majority of the children came from countries that do not inoculate their children. President Obama made the conscious decision to allow them in and they scattered throughout the country. He did not care about or consider the health ramifications to the country.
According to the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), the United States experienced a record number of measles cases during 2014, with 644 cases from 27 states. This is the greatest number of cases since measles elimination was documented in 2000.
So thanks to the Liberals insatiable lust to aid and abet illegal aliens compounded by the “do nothing, please like us” Republican crowd, we have an outbreak. I wonder how many of the people with measles are illegal aliens taking advantage and slowing of our healthcare system?
Faced with this issue Liberals do what they do best: cloud the issue by creating a fake crisis of parents who do not want to “do the right thing” for their children. They pretend to care but are really continuing their social engineering desires.
A strong, thoughtful leader would not have put the country at risk the way President Obama did and would have seen past the immediacy of gaining voters. A true leader does what is best for law abiding citizens and not illegal ones.
I think I figured out a way to get President Obama and the Liberals to diminish their love for illegal aliens. Have them join the military!
