    Should be doing more to help autism.

  3. EriksWanderingChild says:

    All of this coming from the guy who refused to put up blue lights on the White House to honor Autism Awareness Month when every other freaking state/federal building in Maryland did. What a douchebag.

    New research links mercury to autism — yet again:

    Way to Go Mr President

    @Mzgriffy That sucks. As I said I live in Canada, and the federal governement pays for doctor visits and for my pills. This isn’t a special privilege, it’s something EVERY Canadian can have!( and even then, foreign people who are here for a long time without citizenship can have it too),

  7. Mzgriffy says:

    @sErgEantaEgis12 Well, politicians say one thing, then do another. This is generally how it works. The cost of medical care for special needs children is unbelievable. I know from experience…I’m now paying medical bills for my son that are outrageous. The cost of medication is unreal as well. I’m a single mother who got divorced after leaving my abusive ex. I work 2 jobs & I am also a college student. I need help, but the US gov’t doesn’t care. My health isn’t that great either.

  8. sErgEantaEgis12 says:

    @Mzgriffy I tought Obama plan was to avoid insurance discrimination based on disabilities or patients conditions.

  9. Mzgriffy says:

    @sErgEantaEgis12 Well, president Obama cut SCHIP funding to Georgia. Kids who are disabled, have autism, or any other PDD as well as medically fragile children who cannot otherwise get health care now will not have access to health care (due to inability to obtain insurance due to lack of SCHIP funding) My son has Aspergers, Cerebral Palsy & Benign Rolandic Epilepsy. He cannot get insurance due to these conditions (we have tried) and the premiums would be too astronomical to afford anyway.

  10. 94ejack says:

    @floopy312 I agree.

  11. 94ejack says:

    I also have autism.

  12. sErgEantaEgis12 says:

    I’m a guy Aspie and I live in Canada. To be honest I would love to have my country annexed by the U.S, so that president Obama would lead my country instead of Stephen Harper.

    @moongirl786 I’m a girl aspie too!!!

  14. johan82 says:

    I hate the mall. And skirts. And Barbies!!! *runs away screaming, finds a Batman action figure* “Sick, I’m buying it!!!”

  17. moongirl786 says:

    @JenselAngel @Aspie37 @patchharrison Yay, I am an aspie too!! And I definitely agree, we do not want a “cure” for who we are!!!!!! Also, something I find interesting, I am one of the rarer girl aspies, and my female psychologist, female psychotherapist and mother often focus on the points that I am not inclined to do household chores, and that I don’t understand subtle social cues. I have a male-typical brain, am I supposed to act “feminine”???

  22. Aspie37 says:

    Australia has nothing at a parliamentary level for Autism and I hope this will change!!

  23. exposetruthwolf says:

    Yea It’s the vaccines that is making your children sick, But the poisons in vaccines are purposely and deliberatly put in vaccines to inject cancer into girls to limit pop growth and mercury into boys to dumb them down-cause the big world take over is coming soon. See Bill Gates Death Panels and poison vaccines.See the drug firms and Gov. regulatory agencies are corrupt agents for the NWO bankers, the puppeticians are in Congress just running the cover up.

  24. YouStoleMyTube says:


    I also agree that it’s not a cure that’s needed. But a society better equipped to accept and nourish people from all scopes of life! Hopefully parents realize that their children are perfect the way they are. And instead of destroying an integral part of who they are, will instead try understanding them better.

  25. JenselAngel says:

    @YouStoleMyTube Yay for support!
