    The main issue here is that since the PCR tests are so unreliable, the numbers that are based on them are unreliable too.

    Sure, but I don't think there's any strong evidence that 400k people died of this Cov 2 virus. Even if they did, I've seen no strong evidence that these vaccines will help rather than hinder.

    That’s a good idea showing up for doses that may be discarded.

    I did just that last Friday. I showed up out of the blue in the late afternoon. I explained that I had been unable to register and wondered if I could get the vaccine of someone who might have missed their appointment. A very helpful woman sat me down, took my information, registered me and walked me to a vaccination station. So while our state has blown the process completely, our county health department certainly made up for it. Government is always better the closer it is to the citizens. The local folks were as helpful as the state government was not.

    I received the Moderna vaccine. The only side effect has been pain at the injection site and the pain is pretty serious whenever I move my arm. It is normal and should pass in a few days. Apparently the pain is even worse on the second injection. I can live with it.

    I’m happy for you. Very good point about local vs. larger, impersonal government.

    Science and facts? You mean pseudo science and propaganda.

    Science and facts show the virus to be nearly the same as the flu, and that this was a planned event, as Fauci told Trump in 2017.

    Thanks. I always recommend that people look out for themselves. I had a chance to practice what I preach.

    in the same way “science and facts” show the earth to be flat, we never landed in the moon and Elvis is still alive.

    Why don't we call it science modified by a healthy dose of politics.

    It appears to be true. COVID really isn't any more dangerous than a serious flu. It is just way more infectious so there are many times more infections. The death rate is vanishingly low-similar to that of a serious flu. As a biological weapon for the Chinese, I would call it a dud.

    because that is just as dumb as calling it pseudoscience.



    well, not according to science and medicine.
    all of this is factually incorrect.

    I think it is more accurate.

    not according to some science and medicine

    It seems you have tasted the kool aid.

    having no relevance to the fact it's just as dumb as calling it pseudoscience.


    not according to any science or medicine.


    how so? I pointed out nothing in that quotes section was factually correct.

    I have a recommendation for you. I am 76 years old with three co-morbidities as well. I couldn't get an appointment because the state's registration system doesn't work. I showed up out of the blue at the vaccination site which is operated by the county health department. I explained that I was unable to register. I asked that if someone had missed their appointment I would appreciate getting their vaccination. A helpful woman sat me down, registered me and walked me to a vaccination station. Try it. It may not work in your county but it might.

    Considering the damage done to the US and the world, it's not really a dud. And there ARE domestic enemies to the US constitution.

    I view them as an enemy of the U.S. period.

    It is that simple. Australians aren't a homogeneous group either but they are definitely allies. Same with Israelis as another example.

    Did you take a look at the link? I'm personally much more concerned about the global elite, who seem to be calling the shots on all of this, then any particular nation.

    Here's the dirty secret, once registered they must mix the vaccine and once it's mixed they only have around 5 hours to vaccinate. If people don't show up to the appt, guess what happens us, commoners get it or it gets thrown away because it's no good after the time limit. Go to the vaccine provider in the afternoon and ask or call and ask. In my area they are using pharmacies and guess what, I called one and they said come on and get it. Got the shot, waited 15 minutes to insure no allergic reaction and out the door. They were literally throwing away dozens every night. People are stupid and will make an appointment and blow it off thinking they can get it whenever.

    It is certainly worth a try. It worked for me.

    We'll see about the vaccine. Right now, they cannot even produce enough to cover essential people, let alone the dirty masses.
