So in case you’re not aware, you should get yourself vaccinated against the ‘vid. Yes, it’s true. You can get one shot, or two, or now three (and coming soon, four). You must get the same one the second or third time as you got the first one or two times, but now maybe you can mix and match. It’s what we these days call “science”. But whatever you do – get vaccinated. This, we have been told, is the only way the human race will survive a viral onslaught that so far in some 21 months is “responsible” for the deaths of six one-hundredths of one percent of the worlds population. Of course if you believe that the ‘rona is actually “responsible” for that many deaths, you’re just silly. But whatever.
Before we look at Vermont (and Vermont’s inbred cousins in the South) here’s an interesting question for all you super vax believers who will no doubt be demonizing anyone who doesn’t dutifully get the booster shot Shuffling Joe and Matinee Idol Tony are now insisting we get because it “works” or it’s your “patriotic duty” or whatever nonsense these lying idiots are selling us today. We were told, in no uncertain terms, that the vaccines were upwards of 95% “effective”. Today we parse what is actually meant by “effective” but the fact is, when the vaccines began to roll out (and for months before) we were told that this was our way, our only way, out of the end of the world as we know it (shout out R.E.M.). The fact that the vaccines become all but useless in just a few months (perhaps offering as little as 20% “protection” within six months) is not my concern. If you really believed that we could develop a brand new vaccine against a “novel” (remember when that was all the rage) coronavirus within just a few months when we could not create a vaccine against a coronavirus ever before, and that it would be “effective”, well again, silly. I’m not attacking the scientists who tried, and to some extent have succeeded, in developing these vaccines, but my question to you is, what makes you think that THIS shot, the booster shot, will do the trick? We are now being told that the booster will save us all. What rationale allows you to believe the people who are telling you this? Just as we didn’t have six months of data on people’s immune response when we first started jamming needles into people, we don’t have that data now on this third shot. Why would the same exact shot for a third time cause the body to react differently than it did the first two times? What magic is that? What exactly makes you think “Oh yeah, this time they know what they’re talking about.” I’m not saying don’t get a booster, I’m just curious why you would believe Lucy this time as you run up to kick the football...again.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Again to the push for vaccines as our salvation, let’s look at Vermont. Vermont is, and has been for some time, the most vaccinated state in the Union (and is therefore clearly also the most “sophisticated” state as well). Conversely, those toothless troglodytes who live in the South are famously woefully undervaxxed and therefore living in a “Death Cult”. But here are some interesting numbers, some might even call SCIENCE AND DATA.
Vermont is the most vaccinated state in the nation with a rate of about 71% today. On September 1st that number was about 68% so they’ve been out in front for some time, pretty much from the beginning. But since September 1st, Vermont’s daily case count has INCREASED some 56% as their vaccination rate went from 68% to 71%. At the same time in Alabama, which is number 48 out of 51 in vax rate (just 44% coverage - idiots), their case count has DROPPED from August 30th until today by about 90%. West Virginia, dead last with a vax rate of barely 41% (double-idiots) has seen cases DROP by about 47% over the last month, again, while Vermont at 71% has seen a 56% INCREASE.
I’m just curious how you explain that. How is it possible, if the vaccine is the savior (or perhaps the Golden Idol) it’s been made out to be, that these numbers can be happening? What possible contortions could Tiny Tony twist himself into to explain how one state with about 62% GREATER vaccine coverage than another can at the same time show a 56% INCREASE in daily cases while the other state shows a 90% DECREASE in daily cases. Just asking for a friend…
Whatever you think of the vaccines, get em, don’t get em, who cares, the actual SCIENCE AND DATA we have over the past 21 months shows CLEARLY that this is not so much a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” as it is a pandemic of the UNHEALTHY. If you’re overweight or obese you’re at much greater risk of a negative experience with COVID. It also appears you can develop a greater viral load, shed more virus, and shed for a longer time. So maybe we should make overweight people “them” instead of the unvaxxed. Maybe fat people shouldn’t be allowed in movie theaters, sports arenas or restaurants. If you are diabetic or insulin resistant, you are at greater risk, too. The only way you become diabetic (type II which is most people) or insulin resistant is by eating garbage and a lot of it. Exercise also shows benefits in fighting the ‘rona.
So maybe we should reconsider what we think we "know" about this virus and how to deal with it effectively. Maybe we should consider a little less worshipping at the altar of Fauci, and a little more taking better care of ourselves. Just start with walking around the block and maybe ditching the Oreos and pizza. Maybe start with a little less soda and a little more sunshine. Or start with a little less PANIC PORN TV and a little more socializing with actual human beings. But just START. It’s your life and NOBODY is responsible for it but you. Get strong, get healthy, and live life without fear.
