42% vaccination rate = measles outbreak

There is a measles outbreak in Minnehaha.  There are 73 confirmed cases and all but four patients were unvaccinated.  The Washington Post reported on June 1:


Minnesota’s measles outbreak has exceeded the total number of cases reported in the entire United States last year, with no sign of slowing. Health officials worry that the holy month of Ramadan, which began Friday night and brings Muslims together in prayer and festivities, will accelerate the spread of the highly infectious and potentially deadly disease, which is plaguing the close-knit Somali American community.....

Health officials say there have been at least 8,250 exposures in day-care centers, schools, hospitals and clinics. As of June 1, there were 73 confirmed cases, the Minnesota department of health announced, most of them in unvaccinated preschool children. A significant number have been hospitalized. Last year, the United States recorded 70 measles cases.

Although the largest number of cases are in the Somali American community, the disease has begun to spread to the broader community through the Minneapolis public school system, infecting six white children....

Despite the worst measles outbreak in the state in nearly 30 years, anti-vaccine groups have stepped up efforts to spread their message there. At a recent community forum in Minneapolis about the MMR vaccine, an anti-vaccine advocate handed out printouts that claimed the vaccine can cause permanent brain damage and death, according to a Public Radio International report.... Rest of article.
Nothing to see here, move along.

Absolute "idjuts". These fools want free health care for all then they refuse to take the most basic precautions to prevent illness, SERIOUS illness. Once again the thinking people will have to suffer for the fools.

The anti-vaccination crowd has taken over every tea party group in the state. You can't talk politics or tax policy anymore because they dominate the meeting vaccination hysterics.

We need to leave this alone and let them all stay unvaccinated (when vaccines are readily available) -- Darwinism will take care of this situation, and will simultaneously strengthen the gene pool in Minnesota hopefully.

Yet another reason to end all immigration. Especially from disease ridden countries.

The problem with leaving them unvaccinated is they put a strain on health resources. It's not as though they have health insurance. We pay for the socialized medicine. It is easily used by the radicals as yet another form of jihad.

4:36 PM is correct. They dominate the "conservative" movement of the state.

I am a parent who believes that I, not the government, knows and should decide what is best for my children. I support mandatory vaccinations (with medical exemptions signed by physicians).

There is another problem: When the pools of unvaccinated become large enough the measles and other diseases can spread to those who are properly vacccinated.

The fact that the unvaccinated tend to associate with each other (with children it is because their foolish parents tend to associate with like fools) makes these pools effective epidemic seeders.

how can you force climate change science on one hand, and deny the science behind vaccines?

This world picks and chooses what science to believe. I DON'T GET IT. It is turning into a mad world.

every cell on this planet wants to do 3 things take in energy exert energy and make babies. We are being forced to believe that people deciding not to follow the last thing are normal. homosexuality and gender confusion are not normal. The science is very clear behind it.

Face it. This place is destitute. 3/4 of these "conservatives" aren't merely waiting for the apocalypse, but are gladly paving the way to it.

They want God to be a part of government, but get angry when government becomes God--the forgone conclusion of combining Church and State.

Oh well.

Hell, forget Minnesota. There was a measles outbreak in Poplarville a few months ago. Almost no reporting on it.

We will never be destroyed by an outside force...we will be destroyed from within.

I find it interesting that people keep talking about the anti-vaxxers at Tea Party meetings. Is it more than one wacko guy at these meetings? Anti-vaccination is generally a very liberal position led by Hollywood types and is most predominate in liberal areas like San Francisco and Chicago. The highest per-capita vaccination rates are all in the conservative southern states.

When did conservatives start spouting anti-vax nonsense?

the word "conservative" certainly has evolved in meaning over the last several years hasn't it?

8:05 AM There is little difference between the far left and far right. They have been moving in the same direction for a long time.

@ 805, It's all wacko moms pushing anti-vax. Every conservative I know , which is quite a lot, is totally for vaccination. I don't know where these suicidal fools come from.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
