All true.  The important thing is polio was eradicated at that time, although I read in the internet news that it was making a come-back somewhere. Don't remember where.

You are right not to respond with "yes", or not to agree to anything they say.  I always ignore their questions, and start asking them if they watched the "game" last night and start talking about it.  They always hang up after that.

I agree.  I think the people who refuse to get vaccinated should be put in isolation camps.  Let the "non-vaccinated" associate with their own kind.  At the very least, they should be fined $100/day until they are vaccinated, instead of being rewarde...
