    Ok, so I've been thinking. You know how it's said that certain people are harmed by the COVID vaccine, and others aren't?

    Well, that reminds me of how in American history, it is said that the white man's medicines made the Native Americans sick.

    Why, why did that happen? I don't know, but it was something I thought about. This situation with the COVID vaccine is like that.

    You don't know why it happened, but you do know that the covid vaccine is similar?

    I'm just talking about the discussion of some people getting sick from medicine while others don't get sick. That's all.:)

    Got it. We all have different immune systems and weaknesses in our bodies. Each individual is different. Our tolerance levels are different. One treatment heals one individual, yet kills another. Each of us should know the risks when agreeing to a vaccine or any treatment. We should weigh those risks and make our decisions wisely.

    Did they? I'm aware of various native groups suffering illnesses inadvertently brought in by outsiders but not medicines doing specific harm.

    Not really. The issues with native groups is that their bodies don't develop resistance to things that aren't native to their environment. Side effects of vaccines (or indeed pretty much any medication) is generally an individual thing that is a much down to luck as anything else.

    So is liquor, sugar, and drugs.
    They have the choice to take it or refuse it. I’m not hearing much noise about Indians getting “sick”.

    *sigh*

    Small pox killed over half the indigenous people of what is now the US.
    Small pox was eradicated by the 1950's with A VACCINE.

    The LAST case of Small pox among native Americans in the US was 1949.

    IF that vaccine had been available in the late 1800s, we would have a whole different set of history books.

    I played the Oregon Trail Deluxe game back in the 1980s, and I remember that somewhere along the way, I talked to someone who said that the white man's medicine made their children sick. At least I think it was that version. I've played many versions of the Oregon Trail over the years.

    This topic is not about the diseases we brought over the ocean to the native Americans during the first contact, but instead a slightly later date when medicines that helped white people made the native Americans sick.

    Do you know what else is different? The batches of the serum are different. One would expect that because this is an experiment, as in Experimental Use Authorization.

    Nobody knows the parameters of the experiment except the Pharmaceutical companies.

    From what the public has learned since the court ordered Pfizer to make its records public, Pfizer knew the shots were very dangerous.

    Fools look the other way....
