[Quickly let me say, I am blogging here today because I still hate my website. It needs so much work. I hate it. Please anyone with WordPress on a server who knows what they are doing hit me up.
Second, because at 2 p.m. today for the first time in really too long a time, there will be Autism hearing in front of the Congressional Oversight and Reform committee. I keep hearing it will be on C-Span 3, but not confirmed so this link is a back up for that: Streaming here now: http://www.c-span.org/Live-Video/C-SPAN3/ Other link not working
Now, down to business:
There was a time when I would get excited over new developments in the Autism community. A new study supporting a vaccine link... or a new study PROVING that there are MEDICAL and Metabolic underpinnings to autism... Oh! I would get so excited!! I would say, "I am one day closer to my "VINDICATED" tattoo!! But after a while that excitement turned to apathy. The mainstream media ignores such things. Instead they continue to promote this idea that "that Doctor who said vaccines cause autism lost his license because he lied" (if you still believe that you are an ignorant fuck) and that autism is all about quirky kids who are great at math and can shoot baskets. --And if you still believe that, go fuck yourself.
So these hearings are today. I suppose I will watch. I know there are some smart peeps testifying and they will say great things, but I am not excited. In fact I find myself pretty pissed off this morning. We did this 10 years ago. We did this 12 years ago. The only thing that has changed is that MORE kids are being diagnosed with autism. There is an OBVIOUS environmental factor and NO ONE SEEMS TO GIVE A FLYING FUCKITY MOTHER FUCK.
FUCK ALL OF YOU who ignore me. FUCK ALL OF YOU who read my posts and think I am just some crazy woman ranting. This is a NATIONAL FUCKING EMERGENCY, YOU DIM WITS! THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF OUR FUCKING SPECIES YOU STUPID STUPID STUPID ASSHATS.
And I see nothing coming out of today's hearings. Nope. Nothing.
A friend of mine posted this video this morning along with some powerful words:
She said, in part: “”628,320. SMDH
4,620 days ago today, I testified before the Congressional Committee on Oversight & Government Reform. I was concerned that the CDC was reporting 1 in 500 children had autism and the numbers were actually higher, closer to 1
in 100. I was concerned that we had an urgent public health crisis on our hands. [snip]
Turns out, as parents, we were right. [snip]
That’s 628,320 children that have been, or will be, diagnosed with autism since that morning of April 6, 2000 in this country alone.
That’s more than the populations of Boston, Denver, Milwaukee, Washington, DC, Sacramento or even the Atlanta, where the CDC is located.
Isn’t that enough to go ahead and declare autism an urgent public health crisis then address it as such? [snip]
I’m still mad as hell and we don’t have time to go round and round and round.” –Friend I won’t cite because she probably rather people don’t know she knows me
Not a damn thing has changed. Our youngest generation is the sacrifice for our modern lifestyle and greed. And our entire species will follow. And our government does nothing. I really do not understand how they don’t see this as national fucking emergency. How it is not seen as the beginning of the end of our species. How this is not important. Are they that fucking stupid???
I found a few tears dripping out of my eyes this morning after reading my friends words and watching that video. I thought to myself, “Really? Why are you crying??” I thought about it and that is what I realized. It boiled down to the fact that there are so many stupid fucking sheep out there. And that makes me sad.
I will be back with more after the hearings today… and that is a threat and a promise. I am not fucking around.
