Make an Informed Vaccine Decision for the Health of Your Child: A Parent's Guide to Childhood Shots
by Mayer Eisenstein
June 1, 2010

Mayer Eisenstein is a doctor from the Chicago area who runs the Homefirst practice.  Their practice delivers a lot of home birth babies and a good number of the kids do not get vaccines.  The claim is that they have very little autism in these kids as well as very little other conditions like asthma.  Looks like he is a big supporter of making sure you get enough Vit. D.

I have not read this book yet, but it looks pretty comprehensive so worth getting for anyone still researching vaccines.
Holy Cow, that's a lot of Census workers! 

According to this article:

"The Census Bureau projected in April that it anticipates hiring a total of around 635,000 positions in all for the Door-to-Door visits. "


"America's had a very successful first half of the 2010 Census, where more than 72 percent of the nation's households mailed back their census forms," U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert Groves said.

The 72 percent response rate matches that of the 2000 census."

So, remember my post about all the advertising and letters they sent to try to get a good response rate to the census?  Well, turns out it didn't change the response rate. 

From what I have seen, the 2000 census cost 4.5 billion dollars. But the 2010 census is going to cost us 14.5 billion dollars. That is right, 10 BILLION dollars more than 10 years ago and we didn't have any better outcome. Only the government gets to throw around money like this, since it isn't theirs.

And to top all that off, the jobs numbers are being artificially inflating by hiring these temporary census workers.  Once the job is over, they will be loosing their jobs.

I know, I know, what more can you expect from our government.  Some how I don't think the founders could have imagined that counting our people could be so complicated and expensive.
For those who know there are always 2 sides to every story, you might want to pick up a copy of Callous Disregard.  This article gives a little review of the book.

If you do not know who Andrew Wakefield is or if you have no idea that there was a controversy involving vaccines and their safety, you have a lot of research to do in this area.  You should make an effort to do that research before you decide to give a vaccine to yourself or anyone in your family.  Check out the vaccine area of my website to help you get started.
