Re: “Ice Storm '96 was 20 years ago this week

The craziest thing to me about the storm (I was 20) was going outside and just watching the tree branches fall down the street, one by one for hours it continued. I can still remeber the ominous "Crack, crash" sound over and over again.

$300 fucking dollars? Who has that kind of money lying around. Geezus. I love the Shins, but not paying that to see them.

Re: “No, Spokane's mumps outbreak is not proof that vaccines don't work

I wonder if the asymptotic "flu" going around that's leaving so many people exhausted these last couple of weeks is related. I know many people have been experiencing it since about the time the mumps outbreak happened. Maybe the vaccine is helping but people have no relative correlation to compare it. -shrug-
In other news the price of bleach has increased. LOL

Agree! Preach not to spread hate and then that's all they do, spread hate. Hypocrisy, I say!

All liberals do is play word games with everything. Ozone depletion, global warming, climate change, undocumented immigrants, etc. The list goes on and on. Idiocy and hypocrisy run deep with many on the left, and especially this clown of a governor.

Re: “Inauguration, march for women's rights, and morning headlines

Marching, protesting women's rights and talking about how oppressed they are, while stopping for selfies. Do you want to see oppressed women? Go to the Middle East.

These "marchers" are attention-seeking, low-information people complaining about the system, as long as they can reap the benefits.

Re: “Construction begins on new Kendall Yards grocery store, My Fresh Market

Will their still be a night market in the summer, and will it be bigger? Wonder what type of hours the store will be open. Such an exciting place and it keeps getting better.

Re: “No, Spokane's mumps outbreak is not proof that vaccines don't work

"So, how could more vaccinated people have mumps than unvaccinated people? Because, simply, there are more vaccinated people in Spokane than unvaccinated people."

This is certainly true for vaccines for diseases like measles, which provide life-long immunity. An issue with the mumps vaccine is that we likely see some waning immunity - some of the vaccine's effectiveness wears off over time for some people.

Still, the Spokane mump's outbreak and the others we are seeing are still not evidence that the vaccine doesn't work.

The real evidence is we are still no where close to seeing the large numbers of cases that we did in the pre-vaccine era. In the early 1960s, there were about 212,000 cases of measles each year in the United States.

Re: “No, Spokane's mumps outbreak is not proof that vaccines don't work

Every time you read one of these the numbers jump all over the place, at least get your propoganda straight and all give the same numbers! 88% affective???? Really? Because Merck had to provide proof of 95% efficacy or lose their monopoly on the MMR! They couldn't do it so they ordered employees to add doctored rabbits blood to make it appear more effective! That little fraud is now in court!
And why do we give the mumps vaccine, a non lethal illness best had when young and helps protect women against ovarian cancer? The Vaccine Advisory Board once said they would never mandate a mumps Vaccine, so Merck bypassed them and took it directly to the states. Eventually, so many states had added mumps to their schedule that the National Advisory Board said, "oh what the hell.". Yes, the schedule we are all assured is scientifically based, added the mumps vaccine based on the science of "oh what the hell.". Chicken Pox added on the science of "Mom's miss work taking care of sick kids.". And, Hep B based on the science of, "we can't get the druggies, prostitutes, and crack heads to come get the vaccine and we are losing money. Well we have their undivided attention when in the hospitals giving birth and there are no other vaccines given then, how about at birth"? Perfect, and we will claim it is safe even though it was never tested in newborns"! Again, perfect!
Isn't "science" wonderful?

Re: “Police shoot man on South Hill, Trump's combative weekend and morning headlines

John Lewis was a civil rights hero but he is also a politician. He isn't above reproach. He also didn't tell the truth that by sitting out Trump's inauguration, it will be the first one he has missed since being elected to the House. He boycotted both of GWB's inauguration in 2001 and 2005. The media couldn't continue saying that a boycott was unprecedented.

It is all just politics and partisanship, nothing more and nothing less.

Those polls really showed their value back in the beginning of November. If you don't believe me, just ask HRC.

Re: “Few details yet in fatal Spokane police shooting

Unsure if shooting is "justified" because the suspect was running away. Also unsure if he posed a threat great enough to justify killing him. Even if he was car prowling; that's not a crime punishable by death.

Haaaaaaaa! Just wait until the ugly, vile, wretched, liar actually takes office.
One quarter of voters picked this "man" to run our country. One quarter. A minority. He lost the popular vote by 3 million votes. He's filled his cabinet with his filthy, despicable wealthy, oligarch brethren.
There's no where to go BUT down...

Re: “No, Spokane's mumps outbreak is not proof that vaccines don't work

With an effective rate of 88% the pool of susceptibles is large. The vaccinated susceptibles spread it amongst themselves and might pass it to the few unvaxxed.
100 people (at 98% vaccine coverage)
= 98 vaxxed (at 88% effective) + 2 unvaxxed
= 84 vaxxed not susceptible + 12 vaxxed susceptible + 2 unvaxxed susceptible

I see a vaccine that doesn't work well enough, not a failure to vaccinate.

Re: “No, Spokane's mumps outbreak is not proof that vaccines don't work

The fact that vaccinated students get mumps doesn't mean the vaccine isn't effective. From the CDC: "The mumps component of the MMR vaccine is about 88% (range: 66-95%) effective when a person gets two doses; one dose is about 78% (range: 49%92%) effective." That means a fully vaccinated (2-dose) group is 66-95% less likely to catch mumps after exposure than someone who is not immune. Saying that the vaccine doesn't work because people still get mumps is like saying seatbelts and airbags don't work because they are not 100% effective in preventing injury or death. It is expected that some vaccinated people exposed to mumps will get the disease. Also, a highly vaccinated group can get mumps if they have prolonged exposure to someone who is transmitting it. The larger the exposed group, the closer and longer the exposure, the more likely to have tranmission.

1-last SPS report 8/8 students were vaxxed. 2- Mizzou 193 w mumps had 2 doses. Vax isn't effective. http://www.mercurynews.com/2016/12/09/mumps-outbreak-at-university-of-missouri-grows-to-193-cases/
