somehow figure out how to make it work
Anti-vaxx advocacy should be illegal, the same way yelling 'Fire' in a theater used to be illegal. It's not just harming yourself, but putting entire population segments at risk because of your stupidity and paranoia.
appropriate because a major Anti Vaccination doctor was found murdered, gunshot wound to the chest and a pistol found in the water nearby to where he was found.http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/anti-vaccine-doctor-behind-%e2%80%98dangerous%e2%80%99-autism-therapy-found-dead-family-cries-foul/ar-AAckFHG?ocid=HPCDHPSounds like someone lost a child to this man's lies and then decided to go get back at him.
On the other hand...I can't condone lethal vigilante justice, if that is what this turns out to be.
Have they decided that Bradshaw was murdered? Last I heard they were saying suicide. Also, his offices had recently been raided by the FDA and the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency (Source)
Russia examines 1991 recognition of Baltic independenceThe Russian chief prosecutor's office is to examine whether the Soviet Union acted legally when it recognised the Baltic states' independence in 1991.The investigation was described as an "absurd provocation" by Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius.Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania were occupied by Soviet communist forces in 1940. The USSR broke up in 1991.Last week Russia's chief prosecutor declared illegal the transfer of Crimea from Russia to Ukraine in 1954.At the time Russia and Ukraine were republics of the USSR, under communist leader Nikita Khrushchev.Russia's annexation of Crimea in March 2014 was condemned internationally. Ethnic Russians there voted to rejoin Russia, in a highly controversial referendum.There are large ethnic Russian minorities in Estonia and Latvia, while Lithuania has a smaller ethnic Russian minority.Baltic tensionsA source at the prosecutor's office, quoted by Russia's Interfax news agency, said the investigation into the Baltic states' independence followed a request from two parliamentary deputies.In their letter, MPs Yevgeny Fyodorov and Anton Romanov, of President Vladimir Putin's United Russia party, said the 1991 decision to recognise Baltic independence had been taken "by an unconstitutional body".The three Baltic states joined the EU and Nato in 2004. In recent years Russia has viewed that as a hostile challenge to its security interests.Russian-Baltic tensions have been rising since the Crimea annexation and the outbreak of fighting in eastern Ukraine in April 2014. Heavily armed pro-Russian separatists there are clashing daily with Ukrainian government troops.Nato has stepped up its presence in the Baltic states, responding to massive Russian military exercises, including heightened Russian air force activity in the Baltic.Reacting to the Russian prosecutor's move, Lithuania's foreign minister called it "a provocation to say the least" and "legally, morally and politically absurd".
And just as the Greeks are melting down financially, this comes along: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-33325842 OMG, seriously Russia? One would think that Russia would, by now, realize that it is needlessly antagonizing the EU and US by its actions. If it wants to have a good relationship with the West, it needs to stop the needless antagonizing posturing. Edit: It looks like Putin might be distancing himself from this, but this is still a stupid statement for a government official to be saying.
OMG, seriously America? One would think that the US would, by now, realize that it is needlessly antagonizing Russia by its actions. If it wants to have a good relationship with Russia, it needs to stop the needless antagonizing posturing. Something with a pot and a black kettle...
I visited St. Petersburg two weeks ago (amazing and beautiful city, by the way). I was kind of caught off-guard by the huge anti-American sentiment there.It was interesting to see the Russian media in action. I don't exactly think they're a paragon of truth, any more than the U.S. media outlets, but seeing things from a different perspective is always something of an eye-opener.
I take it you didn't read the entire article, then? He's apparently pro-vaccine, just disapproves of the law making them mandatory. While misguided, it is hardly something to boycott the man's movies over.
I actually did read all of it. I guess I should have read it again. I still don't approve.
I'm not fan of boycotting in general, but I'd like to point out that the whole "governments are fascist for making vaccines mandatory" attitude is potentially as harmful as outright claiming that vaccines are harmful.
I don't approve either. But it is his right to think what he wants, and seems hardly the sort of thing meriting a boycott.
