Swine Flu, Vaccines, and Mind Control – Part 6

Posted on Wed 10/14/2009 by


This article is the sixth in a multi-part series to monitor and explain the swine flu, vaccines, and mind control.

Another recent experience left me floored. My 10-year-old daughter is very bright, but she’s bored in school because she gets her work done before everyone else, then sits there with nothing to do. It’s only a matter of time before she starts getting in trouble, in my opinion, so my husband and I started looking for alternative schooling for her. We found Milton Hershey, a private school that is funded through ownership of 50% of Hershey Chocolate. Milton Hershey has about 1800 students right now. Students are separated by school level and gender, and they live on the campus year-round. The children are allowed to spend five weekends home per year, and up to 6 weeks in the summer. They also provide the kids with all medical and dental care, all clothing for school and play, and require them to participate in at least 2 after school activities. When they graduate, they get a large amount of money for college. This year’s top-level students got $80,000 each towards college.

After going through the somewhat invasive application process and sending all the verification to the school, we were called to come down for an interview. We stayed overnight in a tiny motel at MH’s cost. At 7:45 am, we started the interview process. We filled out questionaires, talked to staff, and our daughter was given some testing, including an IQ test. There were two other families there at the same time, and we were all loaded onto a bus and driven to one of the resident halls. The home we toured was occupied by 8 elementary-aged boys, the youngest of whom was only 4! The house was gorgeous, very clean, and probably the largest house I’ve ever seen in my life. I was impressed!

As we walked along, I noticed how everything was TOO perfect. They have 8 little boys living here, yet NOTHING is out of place anywhere? I only have 2 boys, and I find that to be near impossible (I have 4 girls, also). As we walked into the laundry room, it was explained that the children must do the laundry. Fair enough, but they cycle the chores every two weeks, and I’m trying to figure out how that four-year-old manages to read the instructions on how to do the laundry – and when it’s your chore, you have to wash everyone’s laundry, not just your own. Each item has a printed tag with someone’s name on it so it can all be sorted.

We were led down the hallway to see the bedrooms. These, too, were insanely perfect. The “house mother” told us that they inspect the rooms every day, and nothing is allowed to be out of place. She opened a closet door, then said something about that particular boy leaving an item on the closet floor and not keeping his closet clean. (I saw the closet, it was beautiful with one shirt that seemed to have fallen down from a hangar.)

After that we were led back to the admissions office for some lunch, courtesy of Milton Hershey. The food was tasty, and I’m a very picky eater.

During the tour and lunch, we were accompanied by a young man who said he was a Junior at the school. He was also a student employee working for the admissions staff. While we were eating lunch, I asked him some questions, since I’d rather hear from a student who’s living the life rather than the staff who are paid to tout the school’s horn. The boy’s responses alarmed me. Or perhaps more accurately, his DEMEANOR alarmed me. I had noticed that he did not speak unless spoken to, and his answers to anything were brief and to the point. He never answered more than was asked, and once he finished speaking, his eyes returned to the floor. He did look us in the eyes when speaking, but only when speaking. He seemed uncomfortable, although he was kind, friendly, and knowledgable.

One of the medical staff had handed me forms to sign for my daughter’s medical care, if she was accepted to the school. I was fine with all of it, until I got to the vaccine consent form. Milton Hershey requires all students to recieve all available vaccines the entire time the are enrolled. The woman gave me the “fact sheets” that the doctor gives out, including all the ones my daughter has already had, plus one for Hepatitis A, HPV, yearly flu shots, and YES the swine flu shot! At that point I was having major reservations, so I asked if all the staff must also get every shot. I was told no, the staff is not required, just the students, and I said I was not sure I could sign that consent form in good conscience, but my husband and I would discuss it.

A few days later, I left two messages – one for the woman in the medical department, and one for our admissions advisor. Then I waited. And waited. And waited. Finally, someone called me back. My question was whether the religious exemption would be acceptable in leiu of consenting to the vaccines. I was told that since Milton Hershey is not a public school, they are not required to accept any exemptions. I asked what they would do if a child had an egg allergy, and the response was that none of the children have had an egg allergy, but certification from a medical doctor would be accepted, and that child wouldn’t get the flu shot. But all the other ones stand.

Oy vay. I again said that my husband and I would need to discuss this, but that I didn’t think we would be able to consent.

Now we have to decide between giving our daughter an unbelievable education and all the things she needs to be successful, including college, or keeping her home and finding another alternative means of educating her. We’re not opposed to our children working hard for what they get, but this seemed so good! Too good to be true.
