I didn’t say I liked it but doubling down on stupid is what I would expect from you.
Now I spell my name wrong?
Well, "Hell" and "Bender" are two words -- so you screwed up.
It’d be a good idea to put a time line on Perry’s indiscretions (he is a former Democrat — as is Bachmann) to avoid misleading people about his current policy stands.
Merck probably donated to everybody in the race, like the man who was urged on his deathbed by his pastor to “renounce the devil” and who replied that he was in no position to make any enemies.
But if Perry didn’t see the big picture about Merck and its marketing, he was letting himself be used as a pawn.
In 2007, South Korea approved it for girls and boys.
On July 27, 2007, South Korean government approved Gardasil for use in girls and women aged 9 to 26 and boys aged 9 to 15.
Did Perry not know how to read in 2007? Was he just marching to the orders of Merck? This is troubling on so many different levels and the fact that he is now just trying to cover his arse makes it worse.
With the nightmare created by RINOs teaming up with donkeys, I am on high alert whenever a politician's base is willing to give him a GET OUT OF JAIL FREE card on a subject where he was clearly in the wrong.
“Does not mean that some of these drugs cant have devasting consequences.”
But we do know that cervical cancer has devastating consequences.
And we know that young girls, even from very nice families, do go off and have sex and get infected.
I think the problem is that people see their 12 year old daughter and just don’t want to think about how they can get it. They don’t want to look at her and imagine she could possibly do anything in the future that would lead to an infection.
I love drug companies. They make wonderful products and save some lives. I voluntarily use their products all the time.
I like them even more when they don’t make deals with politicians.
My father worked in research at a major drug company for many years. Had a great retirement.
My God, this women is an idiot.
Heheh. Some "against" too. It's part and parcel of the public square.
I know 2 women who have or have had cervical cancer. One is dead and the other is battling for her life.
The one still living got it from her serially unfaithful husband. They’re divorced but he is continuing to spread it to all the women with whom he sleeps.
But this isn’t the first time Bachmann has shot her mouth off without thinking about what/how she was saying what was on her mind. Patterns make a difference...
Since when has the anti-vaccination crowd been concerned with facts?
I don't see why it has to be given routinely to newborns unless there is an immediate risk of exposure. The immune system isn't very developed at that time. I agree that it should be required before attending school.
Agreed, the charge of cronyism with respect to gardisil is extrememly weak, and certainly insufficient to nix Perry as a candidate. There are far better reasons to nix the other candidates, i.e. lunacy (Paul), no exec experience and her own cronyism via ethanol subsidies (bachmann), never held office (cain), and then of course Romney needs no explanation.
I opted out of the vaccine for my daughters but I do have a story that is somewhat in support of the vaccine. We have a history of urinary reflux in my family and 2 of my daughters had it. When I took one of my daughters for a nuclear cystogram the nurse asked me a few health questions. One of them was “was she sexually active?” When I looked at her, horrified, she said, “I know but I have to ask. You’d be surprised how many girls say yes.”
My daughter was 10 years old.

LOL. I don't care who you are, THAT was funny! My mental picture involved "Bender" of Futurama.
If Bachmann has some facts or other information to back up her allegation, she should come forth with it. It’s a very serious charge.
If it was nothing but gossip and innuendo, she just killed her (already descending) candidacy.
Bachman is spreading pure fabrication about the vaccine though. It does not cause retardation. It does not kill little girls. It does not automatically create little sluts out of girls.
My point is that I agree with her on the vilification of Perry’s mandate. But she loses all credibility when she spouts pure crap.
She senses that she got some points, and she goes over the top to reinforce how “correct” she is.
And when she does that, she loses.
From your article:
done some research
even less data for boys
- - - - - -
Hardly matches your claim of well known.
- - - - - -
So you are claiming it was wrong not to require it for boys before it was approved for boys?
It was not approved for boys for use in the US until October 2009.
