Something I don't get....In the US the oral polio vaccine hasn't been the standard since 2000 or so, now the injection is the norm. The oral vaccine is used frequently in other countries though, due to the cheaper cost and ease of use. The virus can be shed in fecal matter when the oral vaccine is used (off the top of my head, I read a bit into this a couple weeks ago so if I'm wrong please correct me). Now there are outbreaks of vaccine derived polio in some of these countries, and they are continuing this route of vaccination despite the fact cholera is present. Wouldn't cholera spread the virus at a much higher frequency?

It just seems common sense not to introduce it in an area with cholera, but what I know comes from doing some internet searches. Curious if anyone else knows more?

Nice song, has a little Dylan mixed with Mountain Goats. "I could be your boyfriend or I could be your shame," what a great lyric.

I don't know much about this band, sounds worth checking out more.

This looks like polio, but in the little blurbs I've read about this health officials aren't supposed to call it that. Acute flaccid myelitis is sudden onset of paralysis and weakness, which is what polio essentially is. Both are caused by enteroviruses, though polio was taken out of that category and then put back in later with it's own subclass (it is confusing in how this is worded on a couple sites, but I haven't dug deep). Maybe I'm slow, but don't viruses mutate and if so, could this be a mutated version of polio? Not an expert in this field, but this should be clearly stated somewhere and it doesn't seem to be.

The only thing keeping the many from rising like lions against the few to create a new world which benefits everyone is the establishment propaganda machine, and right now it is wildly off balance. Shove hard, and don’t stop shoving until it falls.

After reading this article, I was wondering just how each of us can shove. There's a link to this in the article which may be a good starting point to learn how to push back.
