More Measles Hysteria: ‘We Own Your Bodies’

New York Mayor “Bill DeBlasio” (real name: Warren Wilhelm Jr.), who in a recent poll of Democrat presidential wannabes got… well, no votes, has ordered compulsory measles vaccinations for all the residents–even newborn babies–of an Orthodox Jewish community in his city (

Orthodox Jews have a religious objection to the vaccine. “Tough!” says the former Sandinista, who does not use his real name.

Actually, in the interest of fairness, even to the likes of him, I can’t vouch for the authenticity of the “We own your bodies” quote. But he is trying to establish a $1,000 fine for anyone who doesn’t get a measles vaccination–or who appears in any public place without having been vaccinated.

See if you can follow this line of, er, thinking. Non-vaccinated people are blamed for “measles outbreaks” (gasp!) and have to stay away from public places because, if they don’t, they’ll pass measles on to all those persons… uh, who’ve been vaccinated.

What? If you’ve been vaccinated for it, but can still catch measles from someone who hasn’t been vaccinated… then what good did the vaccination do you in the first place? Am I the only one who thinks this doesn’t make any sense?

Why is measles suddenly this fearful scourge, instead of just a run-of-the-mill childhood disease that practically everybody used to get? Is it real, or just another statist hoax built on scare tactics?

Everything they tell us and everything they do has only one intent: to expand the size and power of the state.
