No cause and effect

August 14, 2010: "California is in the midst of its worst outbreak of whooping cough in a half-century. More than 2,700 cases have been reported so far this year — eight times last year's number at this point. Seven of the victims, all infants, have died."

That's the first 'graf of a story on that wacko, tinfoil-hat, wingnut site...NPR.

"Wait a minute," I hear many of you saying. "I thought there was a frickin' vaccine for that! In fact, I had to show proof that my kids had gotten that vaccine before they could go to the local elementary school! WTF?!"

Turns out you're absolutely right: There's been a vaccine for...well, NPR says "decades," which means they probably couldn't find the date either. But no matter: The whooping cough vaccine, like those for measles and mumps, has been targeted by "activists" who are convinced that vaccines cause autism.

The obvious fix is, they don't vaccinate their kid. Or kids.

A second group of kids also hasn't been vaccinated: Children of illegal immigrants. You can expect this fact to be used as part of the argument in favor of amnesty for all illegals, coming soon.

So...1) kids dying 2) in the U.S. 3) from diseases we thought had been eradicated.

And liberals will still deny there is any cause and effect relationship.
