184 measles deaths in 2004?
This indicates 37 cases and zero deaths:

@Orange It depends on the surveillance system you're looking at. The 184 measles deaths were reported through the national immunization program, if memory serves me right. The data you reference comes from the MMWR, which reports notifiable conditions. While tragic, death from measles is not notifiable, for the purposes of the MMWR.

Vaccinations are not as effective as the bout of propaganda would have us believe. Polio as an example; the propaganda says that 350,000 cases of polio dropped to nearly 2000 after the introduction of the vaccine. Scheibner stated that the instances of polio were renamed. So polio goes down, but other diseases go up to match the drop off. http://www.whale.to/vaccine/polio1.html
Vaccinations are a profit engine for big pharma and nothing more.

Scheibner is a geologist, who has been known to mix up and destroy facts. Why does she say they were renamed? What is her evidence?
Plus, that is silly thing to say because now with modern techniques they can now pinpoint the type of polio a person actually has (there are three separate types).
And you have just invoked Scopie's Law:
In any discussion involving science or medicine, citing Whale.to as a credible source loses you the argument immediately ...and gets you laughed out of the room.
