If you’re shopping for a new crossover, and have been comparing the 2018 Ford EcoSport vs. 2018 Honda HR-V, you might find a lot more information to sway you towards Ford. And while we’d normally encourage you only to be as discerning in your investigation as you feel comfortable with, this might be the one time that we advise you to dig deep.
In all fairness, no-one wins in this debate; in fact, everyone loses regardless of which you choose. But the EcoSport has an unfair advantage in online research, thanks primarily to a whole lot of confusion caused by one of the world’s largest debates.
Whether you have followed the headlines through media channels, or simply observe the continual social media debates, there is little point in arguing the polarizing reality of the vaccination debate. Regardless of which side of the debate you position yourself, there are certainly enough facts and statistics to make you stop and think. Of course, there is an equal (if not greater) amount of biased misinformation designed to shift you to one side or another.
Polio. Diphtheria. Tetanus. Pertussis. Measles. Mumps. Rubella. Hepatitis B. Chicken Pox. Even Influenza. These are all basic childhood immunizations that are requirements in order for a child to be enrolled in most schools, although some allowances were made as a result of legislation introduced in 2016. And immunization is required of more than just children…
In 1996, the Immigration and Nationality Act required that all seeking permanent residency in the United States would be required a similar (if not identical) regimen of vaccinations as a preventative measure.
Now, it goes without saying that immunization has its merits when it comes to protecting the general population from the spread of communicable diseases. But within a community that is (on one hand) over-medicated and (on the other hand) suspicious of Big Pharma, who’s to say which side is right and which is wrong?
And now, the spread of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) in sexually active adults has led to recommendations that all children receive a vaccination that will reduce their chances of contracting both HPV and types of cancer which can result from it. But, as mentioned above, misinformation is running rampant, making it hard for parents to determine the best action.
This is amplified by rumors spreading across social media in regard to Haemophillian Rotavirus (HRV) a disease which may, or may not, even exist. But with propaganda memes running rampant, tens of thousands of people are calling out en masse for immediate vaccinations to prevent the spread of HRV.
Here’s the problem: the internet seems unable to differentiate HRV from the widely un-polarizing crossover SUV offered by the automaker, Honda. As a result, an online search for comparative statistics on the HRV might tell you that arguments against the vehicle include (but are not limited to) “hair loss, decreased sexual competence, gas with oily discharge, oral pussing and enlarged and/or darkened nipples”.
And because people are idiots (no, we’re serious — check your Facebook newsfeed for a reminder) negative and cautionary posting regarding the disorder is affecting search engine optimization strategies by Honda to position its offerings for greater success.
But what about you? Do you like the Honda HR-V more than the Ford EcoSport? Also, how do your nipples look? THE LEMON wants to know.
