So yesterday we went over a little bit of President Biden’s speech where he told us he has lost his patience with the stupid, selfish, science-denying, grandma-killers-now-turned-coworker-killers because they just won’t get the damn vax. We saw in five easy sentences the complete and abject absurdity to the whole argument for getting vaccinated, but just get it anyway if you want to function in society (or perhaps end up in a re-education camp). Let's be clear again; I'm not an "anti-vaxxer", I'm anti-stupid liar. There are some more interesting things to go over in Joe’s scolding, but while cruising through the actual SCIENCE AND DATA today, I saw some interesting things which I thought we’d look at together and maybe some really smart person out there could explain them. Now I have been told repeatedly over the last 18 months that I am not a virologist or immunologist or epidemiologist or a small (in more than just physical stature), lying dictocrat enamored with his own press clippings, so I have no business wandering "out of my lane" and disseminating dangerous information which will ultimately get people killed. And yet as I am too dumb to understand that reality, I continue to post data and ask questions anyway. To that end, let’s look at some pictures.
Here we see India’s Daily New Cases graph. Now I’ve already posted this several times and asked if some really smart person could explain it. Alas, nobody has yet taken pity on me enough to talk to me like I’m five and educate me as to the complexities of COVID which I obviously don’t understand.
Here are some numbers pertinent to this conversation. The case count in India peaked around May 8th at about 392,000 cases. The count then turned downward and began a steady, smooth, precipitous decline, what some might call a “plummet” in cases, and two months later on July 8th that number was down to about 42,500. That’s an 89% DECLINE in two months. Now on May 8th when cases peaked, there were about 22,300,000 total cases in India, a country of some 1.4 BILLION people. I’m curious as to why the cases didn’t continue to go up. I have on several occasions asked how any dooms-dayer out there would explain this but alas, no answers have been forthcoming.
Now before you scream “It was the vaccines you dolt!” let’s add an extra layer to this mystery in light of Biden’s demand for vaccination and his insistence of their…efficacy? On about March 8th when cases started to climb, India had effectively zero vaccines administered. Well of course this explains the ensuing meteoric “spike’ in cases: no vaccines = out of control viral spread. Case closed morons, get in line for your shot. But wait a minute, when cases peaked two months later on May 8th, India had a fully vaccinated coverage of only 2.5% (about 10% with one shot). And then another two months later on July 8th (after cases plummeted), India had rocketed their fully vaccinated coverage all the way up to a whopping 5% (about 22% with one shot). Remember, some in this country have been demonizing states with “only” 35% coverage, claiming they are driving the pandemic. So how do you explain what happened in India? Could the vaccines in India be THAT effective that with a case count spiraling out of control and some 1.4 BILLION people still ripe to be infected, a vaccine coverage of only 2.5% stopped the viral onslaught in its tracks?!?! And if that’s the case, why aren’t WE using those vaccines? None of which by the way are mRNA vaccines, and one of which is called Sputnik-V, which is out of Russia! Pretty cool name. Not as cool as Comirnaty I know, but still a pretty cool name. And in case you’re interested, here’s India’s Daily New Deaths graph: The same picture (I like pictures, ‘cause then I don’t gotta do readin’), deaths went up, deaths came down and are now down around the lowest they’ve been since the pandemic started; without vaccines. And remember, the Delta variant came from India. Explanations anyone?
To make our query even more perplexing, let’s take a look at Israel:
Now as opposed to India, Israel was out in front of everybody with their vaccine rollout and therefore had more coverage than anybody early and still has one of the highest vaccine coverage rates in the world. But here’s what’s interesting, On July 1st, Israel had about 230 cases. Two months later on September 1st, their case count had crept up ever-so-slightly to about…10,000! That’s a 4,200% INCREASE over two months. Also of note, on July 1st (the beginning of their most recent “spike”) their fully vaccinated rate was about 57% (62% one shot), and by September 1st (what appears to be the peak) those numbers had risen only to 60% and 66% respectively. And those numbers had been well established for months. On April 1st, the coverages were about 53% and 58% respectively. So you can't say that increasing vaccination rates (of 3 - 4% over two months) have anything to do with what appears to be their current case peak, and you must also recognize that all the cases and all the deaths seen in Israel over the last two months (4,200% case increase but only a 10% increase in total deaths - those numbers should all by themselves get you to unknot your shorts) developed and occurred in a county with a solid 50-60% of the population vaccinated. To complete the picture, here’s Israel’s Daily Deaths graph. Notice it follows the case graph.
So my questions, dumb though they may be, are how is it POSSIBLE for these pictures to exist if Uncle Joe and all the experts and talking heads are right? How is it possible that India, one of the poorest, dirtiest, most ill-equipped countries on the planet sees cases and deaths fall off the chart with NO VACCINES and some 1.4 BILLION people vulnerable (hey remember when everyone in India was gonna die? that was awesome - shout out Chris Farley), yet in Israel which is one of the cleanest, healthiest, most technologically advanced, most “sophisticated” countries on the planet, cases are now higher than ever with deaths showing a similarly significant increase in a country with one of the HIGHEST vaccine rates and less than nine million?
By the way, just for sh*ts and giggles, here are a couple of pictures closer to home (have I mentioned I like pictures?):
Here’s Alabama, which we all know is where all the stupid “unsophisticated” people live. They’re so dumb, their vaccination rate is barely at a mind-numbing 40%! Boy, I wouldn’t want to be a vaccinated person there. Those stupid unvaccinated morons would surely kill me, even though I’m fully vaccinated and Joe Biden told me I’m “as safe as possible”. (clarification - I am not referring to myself in the previous sentence) And as such (as they “deserve” according to many elitist, but also compassionate, know-it-alls), over the two months from roughly July 1st to September 1st, Alabama’s case count went up a shocking 1800%. That's what you get for being stupid and in a "Death Cult". Thankfully, though (and obviously IN SPITE of the people and leaders of Alabama) their cases appear to have peaked and are dropping just like we saw in India (or anywhere else on the planet).
Then we contrast stupid Alabama with really smart and sophisticated Vermont. Vermont is clearly and without argument the smartest state in the Union because they are the most vaccinated, with a laudatory rate of…get ready…69%!! As such, and as the vaccines obviously work (don’t make me lose my patience), over the same time period of roughly July 1st to September 1st, Vermont’s case count only increased about 3650%. Wait, that can’t be right. (Let’s see, line up the numbers, carry the one, take off my socks to use my toes to count, genuflect to altars of both Biden and Fauci…) No, that appears to be correct. SONOFABITCH. It seems that with a vaccination rate about 75% GREATER than Alabama, Vermont’s cases INCREASED at a rate TWICE AS MUCH as those in Alabama. And their case curve (unlike Alabama's) doesn't appear to have turned down quite yet. How could that possibly be possible? It seems downright IMpossible. Joe? Anthony? Anybody? Just so we’re clear on that 75% because I don’t want anyone to be confused (I can actually read and do the basic math functions pretty well), 69% - 40% = 29%. 29% is 75% (rounding up) of 40%. Many people would just say Vermont is 29% above Alabama, but 69% is actually 75% greater than Alabama’s 40%. Got it? Good.
So I don’t care if you get vaxxed or not – you do you. But I do care that we are being led down a path of significant social destruction by people who are either idiots, hysterical, power-hungry, or just plain evil. I hope if you’ve read this far (and maybe my other observations on the actual COVID data), you will recognize that what you are being told by the “experts” and talking heads is not true. The hysteria and societal condemnation being whipped up towards those who choose not to inject themselves with something they don’t want to be injected with is an extremely dangerous game that can only end badly. Please consider for a moment that what you believe you “know” about coronavirus might not be completely accurate. Can vaccines help keep you out of the hospital? It appears perhaps so (but nowhere near a well as if you've been previously infected). Are vaccines going to put an “end” to this never-ending PANIC PORN pandemic? Nope. First of all, the vaccine is way too "leaky", second, there is way too much money and power on the table to let that happen. If you really want to protect yourself against COVID, start getting healthy right now. Lose weight, exercise, get proper rest, stop eating garbage and guzzling booze, and truly relieve your anxiety and fear (perhaps the second most prominent comorbidities for negative COVID outcome) with something other than a pill. Stop listening to the “experts” and mainstream media morons. They DO NOT have your best interests at heart. Living in fear of dying is not living. Get out there and smile at another human being.
