Then why the push to jab 12 year olds ? It's looking like the vaccine rate is bottoming out at well below 40% so why now the kids ? As we say in my business, " Hurry up is the mother of F**k up ". If that happens, " Fake it till you make it ".

But your point is taken and I'll drop the subject.

I share the hate of Pharma, the business practices guarantee the executives a seat with Feklar when they due horrible deaths at the end of the Creators allotted time span on earth.

Putting a methyl group in an Insignificant place, repackaging two doses into one , so they can extend patent protection and thus sell at 1000x markup for a few more years

The woman who jacked epi pen pricing “ because she could” should be injected with an epi pen with a 1/6 chance of Ebola, annually, think of it as Ebola roulette.

Don’t get me started on the Sacklers. I’ll have to self terminate like Arnold....

Many states are now reporting they have more vaccine than they need because fewer people are coming to get vaccinated. I personally find this very disturbing. We have a widely available solution to a global problem and many people are rejecting it.

This is Mad. Can't find real news here. Maybe, stage Left "The Hill"? Another Binge research after a friend got Covid. Some interesting stuff besides trying to track down medicine locally now which the world is using and is a news black out here.

The last video was sent to me and at 10:25 the doctor begins to speak of, says "Ivermectin" and discuss the reason why infection rates have gone down so dramatically in India and is not being reported by Indian news or the world. The video above that described why the infections spread so fast.

As I said before. We need a cut off point.

After the cut off point. Government will not pay the cost and insurance companies will not be required to pay the cost, regardless of contract. For un-vaccinated persons who gets COVID-19 after the cut off. If the hospital hits a un-vaccinated with a $1,000,000 bill it all on the un-vaccinated, not the people, not the insurance companies. Not bankruptcy court.

At least that is the way I think it should be.

It would never work. Makes too much sense.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

I don't agree at all. You want to penalize those people who have reasonable concerns regarding this virus and our response to it ?
Sure you don't want to just put us all in colonies and be done with it ?

To recap the facts:

A new and novel virus where:
We don't know where or how this virus even came to be.
We don't know how long the natural immunities or antibodies last.
We don't know how long the vaccines immunities last.
We don't know who exactly or why some people get it and some don't. Could be a child or a senior. Healthy or not.
We don't know anything about long term side effects of the vaccines.
We have never used this approach ( MRNA ) vaccine before.
We don't even know why one state with no mask mandate ( TX ) sees the same drop in cases as a state with strong mask mandates ( CA ). And NO - it's not herd immunity.

Basically we don't know sh*t ! But we love to think we do. There is way more knowledge out there than we will EVER have the capacity to understand. But our collective ego is enormous.

If I was to blindly follow what I am told by the drug makers, then I'd be not only taking this vaccine, but taking vaccines for everything from the flu to shingles to HPV and God only knows what else. And obviously I wouldn't be leaving my house without a few bottles of pills as well.
Are our bodies and lives now completely dependent on big pharma etc to get us from Monday to Tuesday ? I know mine's not.
At least not yet.

As a side note - if it comes out that this virus did indeed come from a lab instead of a natural event, then I would be more inclined to get the vaccine.
A problem created by man, might then be best solved by man.

Should we pay for head injury costs for motorcycle riders who don’t use a helmet?

I don't think that's a good analogy. We know a lot about vehicle accidents and protective clothing.
But this could lead to a discussion of whether we should embrace autonomous driving cars. Just to be safe you understand :wink:
