Mark Crispin Miller is also featured in the 2003 film, and now? / Orwell quote posted this morning.


Orwell Rolls in His Grave (2003)
A documentary analyzing the role of the modern American media and its effects on democracy.

April 2: Everything you’re reading about VAXXED is false….

I saw Vaxxed last night, at the Angelika in New York City—and I recommend it urgently, as something that you must see for yourself, because the propaganda drive against it has misrepresented it completely.

For example—and as usual—today’s New York Times’s article on last night’s screening ends with this ridiculous summation, followed by a (typically) deceptive shot by yet another expert who attacks the film without the benefit of having seen it.


So Vaxxed is an essential documentary not just because of what you’ll learn from it about this all-important controversy, but—no less—because this mammoth propaganda drive against it is a major threat to free expression in this country: a threat that isn’t coming from the right, but from our “free press,” and all too many liberals.

Now, for a piece of really bad theatre.

"He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother."

Funny he decided to change his mind, just like that, now.

RE: Too Late Now!

From Brian Hooker: "Dr. Thompson has been handled and will most likely submit a revised version of his analysis and try to absolve the MMR in May 2016." More coming.

Whatever for? Many here say Snopes and the skeptics have already credibly "debunked this hoax."
Judge wisely.

Close friend Van Jones spoke extensively about this and more on CNN today.


His advocacy often took place behind the scenes, but Prince envisioned a better future for kids of color, inspiring YesWeCode, an initiative whose goal is to teach 100,000 low-income kids to write code.

Prince told @VanJones68 : “Maybe you civil rights guys haven't created enough Mark Zuckerbergs.”

Prince reveals he battled epilepsy as a child in rare interview...

Tuesday, April 28, 2009, 2:09 PM

LOS ANGELES - He's got the look - and a medical secret that helped shape his legendary music career.

Pop icon Prince revealed a childhood struggle with epilepsy during a rare, soul-bearing interview.

"I've never spoken about this before, but I was born epileptic," the Grammy winning singer said on the PBS show Tavis Smiley. "I used to have seizures when I was young. And my mother and father didn't know what to do or how to handle it but they did the best they could with what little they had."

Prince, 50, said the illness helped shape his over-the-top persona.

"From that point on, I've been having to deal with a lot of things, getting teased a lot in school," the Purple Rain singer said Monday night, wearing a high-collared white satin shirt and high-heeled black and white spats. "You know, early in my career I tried to compensate for that by being as flashy as I could and as noisy as I could."

A Jehovah's Witness who weaves spiritual themes through his songs, Prince said his faith also helped him cope.

We saw "Vaxxed" tonight. It's an excellent movie and you should see it. Happy to discuss it with you, but not until you've seen it.

Define your terms. Oh, you can't without the total implosion of your framing/perspective?

ANYONE* who questions ANYTHING** is deserving of your inane epithet? Oh, really? Look around.

Childhood Vaccine Exemption Policy: The Case for a Less Restrictive Alternative

Just my observation, but there is geographic overlap between the authors of the paper above and the medical center which published on their official website the stat that 1:20 children under 5 have epilepsy (link below). Think about it.

"About 5% of children younger than 5 years old have epilepsy. That is about one in every 20 children under 5."

Not a thing to do with infectious disease, so not concerned? Disgraceful.
