"Advocacy groups today accused US President George W. Bush of trying to reduce children's IQ through mercury-induced neurological disorders such as autism, attention deficit disorder, language delay and learning difficulties in children..."
Very good. Now imagine how much more erudite your response would've been if you hadn't been exposed to mercury.
:laugh: :laugh: Help me......I just swallowed my gum!!
I can see, based solely on the information you presented, that it would appear that Bush backed down from his campaign promise. That's a fair report.
But I truly don't believe he is actively trying to reduce the IQ of American children. I think that's more along the lines of Enquirer reporting.
I just went to the CDC site and they report that there are no children's vaccines that contain mercury as a preservative except for some flu vaccines.
I've got to investigate this some more. :thumbs:
I think some folks have been exposed to a double dose. This is largely "activists and "some medical proffesionals" who are they and what are their quailifications in this matter? A rather sensationalistic characterization that is based on obscure opposition with apparently little credibility.
Sheesh! Who in the world is that? if you had cnacer would you accept a diagnosis from "activists and some medical professionals". To vague no credibilty.
In your investigation, be sure to check out the SafeMinds Press Release about the CDC on this matter...

Great. reports by "some medical proffesionals". this doesn't amount to the sensationalistic characterization that the President is trying to lower the IQ of children. No evidence of that given anywhere.
Environmentalists are advocating putting children at risk by wanting people to switch to compact flourescent bulbs that contain mercury. Break one of those and it turns the room into a hazardous waste site.
CFLs do contain mercury, but it isn't a huge danger.
I don't consider using those kind of bulbs to be worth the risk. I consider it to be a bunch of environmentalist do-gooderism for a bunch of nothing.
If someone wants to take the risk - fine. I just don't want government mandating their use.
And I am rather incredulous about the alleged saving of the emissions of 800,000 cars for a whole year by the use of only 1 of these bulbs.
We have compact flourescent bulbs in everything but my wifes reading light. I'm not in the least afraid of mercury.
"I'm crazy bout a Mercury!" Oh wait that is something entirely different.
Thank you, Alan Jackson.
I think we should ban paper. I got a really bad paper cut the other day. It could have got infected. If we take away every thing that could hurt anyone. We would not have to worry about anything.
