#2  You can be sure that whatever death inducing agent of chaos comes along, any establishment [and the opposition] will try and make the most of the fear and uncertainty it brings. That is no reason to disbelieve that a danger does in fact exist.

We have seen statistics and statistics, and all refuted, laughed, mocked them here at the 'Burg a thousand times. Today you have some numbers floating around showing that COVID is a minor thingy that doesn't really do much harm, and people are hopping to believe them. Granted, it doesn't do much harm to those who don't get it, and to those who are strong enough to beat it. The others die.

Every country today is in some state of lockdown. Not because the gummints have found a new tool to coerce and kick the subjects into further submission. But because in this age of welfare socialism, even the death of a thousand people is a mandate stealing threat of eviction from the palaces. The gummints don't want to chip you, put you in a burqa, or herd you like cows. They just fear that enough of you get sick or die, it's their presidencies and premierships down the toilet. So they do need you alive and safe.

As for the question about whether the vaccines are made right or not, how and when will anyone know for sure? If the bureaucrats are taking the darn thing, you can bet it's more or less safe. At worst it won't prevent the disease. At best it will. In some cases, it will cause already weakened systems to malfunction. But the collective will be a whole lot safer for having evolved antibodies who at least know the thing [forgive my bumpkin assertion and correct me if I'm wrong].

It's a little like the D-Day landings. Some will fall, but an advance will still have to be made.

This whole thing is all pansy reaction, by the way. I still think the world's nuclear powers should together bomb China until it produces only hapless midgets playing pokeymon, for fcuking around with weaponized disease.

#4  ^ I don't think anybody will, but whatever.

And before this thread devolves into a 'Fcuk thee!' and 'Thy mothere!' type free for all, I must tell you, Grom, that I found the Rorouni Kenshin series a blast. The last movie was a bit silly but the second last one 'The Beginning' was an experience up there with Zatoichi.

#5  In fact Zatoichi was campy nonsense compared to it.

But you look away from what you think are Conspiracy Theories when I point out that the bureaucrats you're relying on for medical knowledge are the people who worked to make the US complicit in the creation of the virus.

#13  'We need leadership from everyone': Biden slams Florida and Texas for having one third of all new COVID cases in the U.S. and calls on governors DeSantis and Abbott to 'use your power to save lives or get out of the way'

So Texas needs to Shut Down but also Shut Up about all the new settlers the Feds are allowing in from countries with an 80% unvaccinated rate?

#14  If the bureaucrats are taking the darn thing, you can bet it's more or less safe. I for one decline to give any credence whatsoever to statements by any state or federal bureaucrat that a single one of them has in fact received the vax. Even if they seem to have received the shot from a labeled bottle on live television, it could well have been a trivial deception for them and their cronies to have faked the actual process. The oligarchy thrives on deception and manipulation of its serfs.

A new low by Buy Dung? in hypocrisy, misdirection and deception. The POTATUS is using his power to swamp the USA in illegal immigration by masses of COVID-19 infected illegals and has the gall to use the Federal courts to get in the way of the TX governor to stem the dispersion of the infected hordes.

#17  But you look away from what you think are Conspiracy Theories when I point out that the bureaucrats you're relying on for medical knowledge are the people who worked to make the US complicit in the creation of the virus.

I'm NOT relying on YOUR bureaucrats for medical knowledge. Far as I'm concerned, they are garbage. But, IMO, the "experts" that you keep quoting are garbage squared.
Now, why don't you go and read on "non-binary (Aristotelian) logic and stop bothering me?
Posted by: g(r)omgoru || 08/04/2021 10:13 Comments || Top||

#18  Maybe you should stop pretending to lecture people on binary logic when you act like anyone who wants to find out about _TREATING_ the disease is a threat to your precious vaccine.

#19  change comes out of chaos That is just a truism. However, those changes are most likely to be extremely undesirable and harmful.
Those crazy leftists want destruction, degradation, mass insanity, etc. for the sake of their lust for power.

#20  The information is in the 2017 PDR. And the devil is in the details. You might want to stop belng so damn binary about things and look up the information and find out the papers you're citing are lying to you.

It would be foolish on my part to argue with your tenacious resolve. I just wish you and yours never have to fight it, and if you ever did, may you win.

#23  I'll jump in with my disgust at the recent attacks of American patriot and successful entrepreneur Mike Lindell:

In my opinion, anyone who openly disparages Mike Lindell is clearly the enemy, no additional PID required. The attached graphic depicts some familiar logos of the 'box store - Made in China' enemy. The DOJ, FBI, and intelligence agencies are little more than modern day Schutzstaffel, eagerly supporting the globalist, moneyed cabal. So-called 'endless wars' have fallen on hard times. The Schutztaffel must now focus their attention on the internal threat. The current crisis de jour is the plandemic. Endless plandemics? Yes of course, and we must fight them at every turn.

And what a wonderful way to virtue signal and appear socially benevolent while not only ridding the kingdom of the unborn, but also the non-producing elderly. The late Murad Jacob "Jack" Kevorkian, the Wuhan scientists, and Tony Fauci, all kindred brothers.

"Choice" is of course limited to issues pertaining to reproduction. Get the JAB you insolent peasants!

#26  A small mark of the growing resistance, I went to Wally World yesterday to get groceries, the first time since the Gov of Nevada reinstituted masking indoors. The sign at the front door said masking was mandatory to enter, but.....about 30% of the customers and several employees were unmasked, lots of them old, but a number of younger family types and moms with kids. No one said a word, and everyone just pretended it was just a normal day.

#28  The guy that developed the vaccine's name is Dr Malone. He was on Bannon, episode 1137 from 31 July. He is pro vaccine, but disappointed in what's happening. He plain talks side effects, The USG plan, why it will fail from a virologist perspective, and what he believes the future should be. I wish everyone arguing here would take the time to listen to him. He believes in the vaccine, does not believe everyone should get it and explains why. He talks about Fauchi and his noble lie, the DC group think/group panic. Like Bannon or hate him, the info/data points here are honest.

Kamala Harris Combats High Unfavorability...
Yeah yeah... to easy. Besides Kamala would never give up a meal..
[BabylonBee] FORBIDDEN WOODS—Recent polls have shown a low favorability rating for Vice President Kamala Harris. To combat this, she has taken the unusual step of releasing all the children she had imprisoned in her gingerbread house deep within the forest.

"Look at all of your children returned!" Harris announced as the kids fled from her. "And uneaten as well!"

It’s unclear why Harris has such a low approval rating. Some people blame sexism or racism or a combination of the two (sometimes known as "rexism"), but Harris hopes she can turn her approval rating around by giving families back their children and not plumping them up and eating them like she had originally planned.

"Run! Run back to your families!" Harris yelled to the fleeing kids and then let out one of her famous laughs.

"It’s just hard for a black woman in this climate," said Sally Hubbard, an aide to Harris. "And it’s not going to be any easier for her, since she’ll now be cranky, having not satiated her hunger for children."

Those who could help her career.
And she was willing a willie to please.

#9  One of the VPs jobs is to take the heat off of an unpopular President by being evil or stupid or both. In that regard she has finally found a job she's good at.
