I really need to stop saying, "how stupid can you be?"  Some people are starting to take it as a personal challenge.

Fixed.  grin1

(Both of his ex-wives ... or at least two of them, maybe he's been married more than twice, I don't know ... have accused him.)

Kind of a stretch to call him an "aide" of Trump.

I know you're being glib, but you understand "member of advisory council" doesn't make someone an adviser ?  The difference is, Rob Porter is (was) around Trump each and every day.  Jerry Falwell and Gloria Copeland are lucky if they see Trump once a year. 

It's like saying Alex Jones is equivalent to Stephen Miller or Dean Scavino.

Another example is Trump's AIDS advisory council, which was recently disbanded.  They were leaderless, had a failing mission, and Trump never met with them.

An article about some dumbass telling people not to get flu shots because Jeebus will protect them and you focus on the semantics of the dumbass' title.

Who cares ?  They're all idiot religious nuts who don't really associate with secular kids.  Let 'em croak.  The whole flu thing is overblown anyway.

Someone wanted to turn this into a Trump thing, as if there isn't enough hysteria around that sphere already...

Yes, dozens and dozens of people dying, most of them children, is being overblown.

Someone? That,would be you since you're the only one that felt the need to single out that one minor factoid out of an entire article.

Yes, overblown.  So there's a lag between when new cases are reported, and when the CDC confirms, but the number dead is in the low dozens:

http://abc7chicago.com/health/cdc-16-children-died-from-flu-this-week-53-so-far-this-season/3023310/

Putting that into perspective, recent years have seen mortality rates in the United States between 12,000 and 56,000, mostly killing off the immuno-compromised and elderly.

https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/2015-16.htm

Meanwhile, heart disease kills off ~400,000 people in the U.S. annually and cancer (all types) kills off ~600,000 people annually.  The media has been looking to get excited about a global cancer pandemic for years, and it just hasn't materialized.  So yes, no one should really give a shit about some fundamentalist whacko who thinks zombie Jew saviors cure illness anyway, since it's not really that big of a deal, after putting it in perspective.

Not my thread.  I didn't introduce the article.  Nor do I introduce a string of stupid articles about each and every Trump lackey leaving the administration because it makes me moist like that.

Tell that to the parents of the 50+ dead children you don't care about.

Comparing it to heart disease? Apples and oranges.

We should care about what this fundamentalist whacko says because people listen to her, people with children. She's no better, and just as bad, as Jenny McMcarthy and the rest of those anti-vaxxer retards.

Death by disease = death by disease.  Nitpicking over what the disease is a useless activity, when both are treatable / preventable.

Not if you vow to be a better a better parent and not inflict religion and/or anti-vaxxer propaganda upon your kid.  Trust me, by and large, their kids aren't going to your kids' schools.

It's hardly semantics.  Everyone agrees job titles are largely bullshit nowadays.

It's a particular bit of scab-picking by the OP, witnessed about twenty times or more.  Even Sol didn't do a happy dance every time an Obama official or surrogate stepped down.

I regularly donate to all sorts of charities. Even did the Polar Bear Plunge last month to raise money for the Special Olympics of Maryland.

So... 10% ?  And how much of that spread was to Africa for the starving kids there ?

You'll have to ask those charities. No doubt the money I've spent on NFL apparel will soon help clothe countless children in New England Patriots Super Bowl 52 Champions t-shirts.

The point is, why try to guilt someone about other misery in the world, just to take the attention off another (perhaps larger) misery ?

You.  You said that I don't care about 50 dead children.  Big fucking deal.  You don't care about dysentery in India.  Or starvation in Madagascar.  Or bombings in Syria.  (And all of those kill more than 50 kids.)

That should be no surprise.
