    With consideration that greed and authoritarianism are certainly behind the vaccs mandates, I find myself also wondering if they don't want any "control group" of unvaxxed in case the shtf with the vaccinated.

    That would certainly expose the criminals behind this nonsense.

    Thoughts?

    No, not at the present. Time will tell if the Omicron is a killer or not.

    Banana benders we call them, sharks, crocs and swimming pools are the best killers up there when it comes to water environments.

    Did you join in the protests against police brutality in Dallas and Austin last year? Did you join in the demonstrations in Wichita Falls, I mean we need to confront the Police about racial inequality don't we?

    Florida man is forced off United Airlines plane for wearing red women's underwear over his face as a mask - and other passengers march off in support of him

    Well played, Florida man. Funny as hell, but "other passengers march off in support of him" is the best part of this story.

    “The enemy can only destroy himself”.

    That’s the professor’s conclusion. I don’t find that particularly useful.

    I can tell a useful and insightful anecdote about getting a booster if anyone is interested.

    I donít think so, since the number of vaccinated people is massively overblown, plus the media control is all encompassing. I think the mandates are a combination of authoritarianism, various forms of crime, but most importantly, of bureaucratic occultism, which I think is alone the major danger of the era we are entering.

    Whelp, it finally happened. Two years in, and we were finally visited by the COVID fairy. 100% pulse ox, no fever and body aches with some dizziness. Honestly, everyone (including the doctor) didn't believe it at first because everyone thought it was a simple ear infection, and the doctor assured us it wasn't even a contagious case yet. No idea where it came from besides, perhaps, Walmart. The local hospital has monoclonal on stand-by for severe cases, and since we're so fat (not really... just thirty pounds "overweight" from strength training at healthy body compositions) we automagically qualify. We were recommended a lower dose of the vitamin C, D3 and K2 than we've already been taking, and the kiddos and I remain entirely asymptomatic.

    News directly from the frontlines. Sorry it's boring.

    It is called Stockholm Syndrome.

    Aren't you in Victoria? because they haven't been lifted, the powers to declare now lie with the premier.

    To play devils advocate, for the 70+ non institutionalized, I'd imagine there are some who think that risk (2.4%) is high. On its surface, it looks high to me, but I also am not comparing it to anything. (ie, what are the odds a 70+ dies in a car accident for example). Just a comment.

    On another note, I'm going from Tampa to Charlotte for 2 weeks. Am I going to think I am going to another country?
