It’s been almost a year since I’ve worn a mask, how about you?

    Here in Texas we were liberated from the China Virus Mandate Tyranny by Executive Order in March 2021. We've been free from mandatory mask wearing, school closings, business closings, et al, ever since. China Virus is mostly a memory now.

    I know that COVID shots aren’t a true vaccine.

    Explain what you think a vaccine is.

    You are totally correct. The surgeon that saved my wife's life put it very succinctly: "Vaccines are supposed to prevent disease, not mitigate it. And cert not cause other, possibly more dangerous ailments."

    Vaccines do not prevent all infections. No vaccine does that.

    Furthermore the efficacy of a vaccine is measured against multiple outcomes. How well does it prevent infection? How well does it prevent serious infection? How well does it prevent death.

    Any efficacy greater than 50% is considered a successful vaccine. The COVID vaccines have an efficacy against serious infection and death of about 90%

    Furthermore serious side effects from the COVID vaccines are very rare (far less an 1/10th of 1 percent)

    And you sound like the little kid who sticks his fingers in his ear and yells “LALALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU”

    Your refusal to accept facts doesn’t change the fact that they are facts.

    The FACTS are that Biden, double vaxxed and double boosted... still got the China Virus. The FACTS are that that the vax causes pulmonary problems in kids.

    We were freed from the China Virus Mandate Tyranny here in Texas by Executive Order in March 2021. You rarely see anyone in a mask here anymore, except for the occasional little old lady. We do understand though, that the tyrannical masters in blue states, desperate to keep the populace cowering and obedient, are keeping the control alive with rules and propaganda. We often joke here about how our kids will be doctors and astronauts while their counterparts in blue state will still be trying to read. California just published a report on the status of their students having been locked at home for so long which bars this out.

    The fact that Biden got COVID means NOTHING.

    What is there about that that you do not understand. No vaccine prevents 100% of the disease. As I said before if a vaccine has 50% efficacy it is considered a success.

    Small pox vaccine wiped out small pox. Polio vaccine wiped out polio. Yellow fever vaccines protect,. Typhus vaccine protects. But China Virus vaccine is a crap shoot. and may give you serious other problems. And you think that if it doesn't work for the most cared-for person in the world... the President with endless medical resources and multiple personal physicians ... the entire Bethesda Complex at his beck and call... can't get it to work... that's not significant? Hmmmm... ok... you run with that...

    Medical masks protect others from what you exhale. So please be kind to your family and wear a mask at home. :)

    We stopped wearing masks around here in March 2021 when the Governor issued an Executive Order outlawing all China Virus Tyranny Mandates. We're doing great. And our kids are doing better in school than those locked away... Did you see the California schools report? California is turning illiterate.

    Yes, because of the small pox vaccine we achieved "herd immunity". That does not mean every individual who was vaccinated was 100% immune. The efficacy of the smallpox vaccine was extremely high, about 95%. Meaning that it reduced infection by 95% when compared to unvaccinated people.

    The efficacy of our current COVID vaccines against the Omicron variant (the two most used, Pfizer and Moderna) is about 45% in preventing the disease and 72% in preventing hospitalization and death.

    Against the initial strain of COVID they were about 90% effective in preventing the disease and 95% effective in preventing hospitalization and death.

    This just shows the rapid mutation of COVID requires frequently updating out booster shots.

    We don't pay much attention to it here anymore and we're doing just fine.

    No mandate, I just do it as about half the folks I see when I go to Krogers, Walmart, CVS and the like. It may or may not help, I’ve never been sure of that. It’s a case of better safe than sorry. Besides, I’ve gotten use to wearing it. It has become part of my normal routine. Yes, it is usually the older folks who wear masks, perhaps they think the same way as I.

    ~ For that very reason the CDC made a change in the description of "vaccine " .

    A vaccine only works to "prevent infections" with regard to the virus that is contained within it.

    Nope. The whole point of a vaccine is to prevent infection. The whole point of vaccination is for a person to NOT become infected with the particular disease being vaccinated for in the first place. Stop making excuses for the Big Harma companies who lied to you about the (lack of) testing that they did on their products and the efficacy of their products.

    Okay, for sake of this particular discussion, let's adopt this as the definition for a "successful vaccine".

    Let's, for sake of this particular discussion, assume that these COVID jabs are in fact vaccines (they aren't). They don't have a 90% efficacy rate. The CDC director herself has supposedly been jabbed like 5 times and has supposedly gotten COVID at least twice now. Justin Trudeau has supposedly been jabbed like 5 times and has supposedly gotten COVID at least thrice now. 90% efficacy my ass...

    They are very common (when compared against actual vaccines). VAERS reports aren't going through the roof for no reason at all... Athletes aren't dropping left and right for no reason at all...

    Ask Rochelle Walensky, who was "up to date" on her jabs (5 jabs?? idk anymore) and STILL got the China Virus... TWICE.


    Meanwhile, I've gotten ZERO jabs and gotten the China Virus ZERO times.
