Who will emerge as the best Autism candidate?

Check out what Obama said yesterday in Philadelphia:

“We’ve seen just a skyrocketing autism rate. Some people are suspicious that it’s connected to the vaccines. This person included. The science right now is inconclusive, but we have to research it.”
–Barack Obama, April 21, 2008

It’s about time the government took it’s job seriously.  Their first job is to protect its people from threats both outside and within (even when the threat is the govt or the president himself, I’m talking to you Georgie).

And to be fair, McCain weighed in on vaccine safety earlier:

“It’s indisputable that (autism) is on the rise among children, the question is what’s causing it. And we go back and forth and there’s strong evidence that indicates it’s got to do with a preservative in vaccines.”
–John McCain, Texas town hall meeting, February 29, 2008.

We need to be pressing the candidates for change (that we can believe in).  And lets all hope HC loses today in PA so we can focus on how we’re going to change the tide and corruption in the halls of govt, the media and the narrow-minded medical community concerning the causes and treatments of autism.

Happy World Autism Day!

Lot’s of coverage on CNN today. Some of it good. But let’s not raise awareness, let’s raise compassion.

A lot of people are aware of the existence of starving kids in Africa, but who is moved with compassion to do something about it?

We don’t need people to be aware that 1 in 150 kids has autism, we need people to have the courage and compassion to move heaven and earth to help our kids. (preach it!)
