“I worked at a Red Lobster for 4 years to put my children through school. It was one of the best jobs I have had. As an employee, I was treated great. They had profit sharing and as a waitress, I averaged $20 an hour. Management treated the employees well. I now own my own business... but RL served it's purpose.”

“They don't do that anymore. They have taken advantage of laws put in place where they can be paid below minimum wage due to tips by charging them mandatory fees out of check like uniform fees”

“grats to you and your success. Also, thanks for serving frozen seafood and selling it as a premium.”
“Actually we have stopped taken medications. As a medical professional, deep inside the medical matrix, do some research to see how much of your education was subsidized by Big Pharma... go on... I dare you! How many classes have you had in nutrition? They don't use live virus... but they do use mercury in vaccines... or do you think that's ok, as well?”
“And you've concluded that it's happening from a lack of vaccines and not from proper nutrition and clean water? Vaccines do not necessarily incur immunization.”
nasknit on Mar 20, 2014 at 00:53:37
“They have a success rate that's better than 90%+. Vaccines do more to prevent disease, than a lot of other 'cures". Yes, clean water and good nutrition are important, but neither one will prevent Smallpox, Measles, Mumps, Whooping Cough, Polio, etc. YOU remember Polio, don't you? Where all those people were crippled (Like FDR), or ended up on Iron lungs to breathe? Or, HOW about smallpox, which decimated native Americans in the Western Hemisphere, both north & south?”
“have you ever read the contraindications on vaccines? If you read them and choose not to vaccinate ... then your an informed parent. If you don't read and choose not to vaccinate... then your considered abusive. How many people die each year from prescription drugs? The US consumes 50% of the worlds drugs....”
lordshipmayhem on Mar 31, 2014 at 11:50:54
“If you read the statistics on harm from vaccine versus harm from the disease, and if your child has not got one of the factors that would contraindicate getting the vaccine (like a compromised immune system), and you still choose to not vaccinate, YOU are the one being an ill-informed parent.”
Arval Becker on Mar 17, 2014 at 04:12:43
“You are relying on everyone else to vaccinate their children so your child will be more safe. You are fearful of the possible side effects of the vaccine? Do you have any idea of what the actual disease will do to your child? The fever of small pox which has a death rate of 30-90% and you can do nothing about it since they now have the disease. Then there would be the guilt of killing even more children by having him/her infecting others in their class who couldn't have the vaccination or like you chose to play with their child's life.”
Anne Mccormick on Mar 17, 2014 at 02:19:52
“You won't mind then if some group of parents sue you because they believe that your unvaccinated child has endangered their own children. And you also won't mind if your unvaccinated child is not allowed to play with other children.”

“What does any of that have to do with a state ensuring ALL kids in school are kept away from little Billy who has whooping cough? Don't vaccinate little Billy. Keep him at home away from other kids.
ruthtruth on Mar 16, 2014 at 11:41:25
“So how many children in the US have died from getting vaccinated? I couldn't find any statistics. Could you?”
TXfemmom on Mar 15, 2014 at 23:44:41
“Then you better stop taking ANY MEDICATION. If one read the entire list of possible and reported contraindications, side affects and reported complications associated with ASPIRIN or any other medication, no one would take any of it. I am a medical professional, an Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Nurse Anesthetist for 30 years. We discovered I have a rare genetic disorder where my body doesn't make enough of one subset of white blood cells. I used to get sick with vaccines because of that but they did not know the reason, but it was BECAUSE THEY STILL USED LIVE VIRUS VACCINES. None of them are live virus now, NONE. Children are probably ten thousand times more likely to suffer complications from not taking a vaccine than they are from taking it.”
bpulliam on Mar 15, 2014 at 19:00:07
“False analogy, Linda. Vaccines and drug overdoses have no connection together when it comes to public health and communicable disease.”
MargotFernandez on Mar 15, 2014 at 15:57:17
“Why is that, I wonder? Could it be because America has a media drug culture? Check out a song by rising country star Brandy Clark: "Take a Little Pill."
Meanwhile, there are such things as doctors and they have forgotten more than you and I will ever know about contraindications and exceptions.
Not vaccinating a child is absolutely one of the worst forms of child abuse, and I am sorry for the parents who are going to sit at their child's bedside and watch them die because they made this foolish decision.”
Kelly Scaletta on Mar 15, 2014 at 12:13:47
“Yes, because the indications are worse than small pox and polio and the like.
The world was so much better off when diseases like these were killing millions.
And vaccines aren't a drug btw.”

“Don't vaccinate them. That is your choice. But don't send them to school. That is my right.”

“Just don't "inflict" your darlings Stew of disease causing germs on the rest of society. As to the US using so many drugs? Third World countries parents would LOVE to be able to protect their children so well. YOU Know, Countries where MILLIONS of children die from diseases, that are NOT life threatening, when you have an actual access to healthcare?”
dollbaby on Mar 15, 2014 at 02:36:59
“have you ever watched some footage of old hospital wards with children who have whooping cough? A pediatrician I had years ago did he residency on one and help invent procedures for drainage. and how can you compare a vaccine drug to the use of prescription medication....give me a break!”
Eric Kamm on Mar 15, 2014 at 01:08:45
“Have you ever read the stats on death in your own home? You know your bathroom and kitchen are just a moment away from killing you. But if you don't shower and eat out, you're offensive to others and likely not eating well.
Look, life, is terminal. You're not getting out alive and neither am I, nor any of us. How many people die from alcohol and tobacco, not to mention their car?!
No one ... NO ONE ... is saying any of this is 100% safe, not now, not ever. YES, vaccines have a list of contraindications and risk, even if that risk is literally 1 in 5 Million, it must be listed.
But 99.9% of people never have any adverse reactions to these vaccines and meds IF AND ONLY IF they are used correctly. They DO save lives.
Those diseases, kill more than those vaccines. You choose, but choose wisely.
If you don't vaccinate, you're putting yourself and everyone you come in contact with at risk, you selfish, egocentric person.”
silverstreet on Mar 15, 2014 at 00:46:19
“If you did your research, you would conclude that vaccinations prevent disease.”

Ron Hovey on Mar 14, 2014 at 23:04:30
“The science and statistics on vaccines is well established. There are adverse events from vaccines including some deaths, but the diseases targeted by the vaccines cause orders of magnitude more adverse events including far more deaths. Also, your argument conflating most prescription drugs with vaccines (yes I know they are drugs) is misleading. Just seeing your "Alchemy1" screen name says a lot.”
“if your already vaccinated... why worry? btw... vaccinating does not necessarily confer immunization.”
MTNerd on Mar 14, 2014 at 23:57:40
“If you're already vaccinated it may not be 100% effective, but if you are around others that are vaccinated then you benefit from herd immunity where even if you're not immune there are enough around that are that it confers immunity to you by proxy.”
“oh yeah they have something to offer.... tax credits! Ha! What a joke! Give a homeless man on the street, or the mentally impaired inmate in prison tax credits!”
Don Fields on Feb 24, 2014 at 11:07:31
“That is always their plan. Something so ridiculous that it smells. Tax credits only help those who file. Think of the millions who make so little they don't have to file, and how do you reach them through the IRS? You don't, but the Gop actually wants it that way. They have a mythology about the poor they are unwilling to examine.”
