Pregnancy complications spiked during the pandemic

I feel like I’m repeating myself, but apparently this is a novel concept for some people. When you stop exposing your immune system to things it stops working right.

Also, apparently when you terrify people into not leaving their houses they don’t exercise correctly and BMI increases, which also increases various risk factors for immune malfunction.

Covid19 vax and bivalent booster added to CDC recommended childhood vax schedule

Title says it all. I’ll add links to this post specific to this.

First up.

NY already has legislation pending to add the covid vax to the mandated list. Please note that NY refuses to acknowledge religious refusal of such, and has a history of refusing medical exemptions with the covid vax.

NH states it has no intention of forcing the Covid vax.

ICANN getting ready to challenge laws requiring it


CDC and ACIP to Discuss adding the Covid Vax to the Childhood Vax schedule

Meeting is Oct 19th

Edit: ok, the 10/19 vote was to add it to the Vaccines for Children program (which they did do), the vote today 10/20 is to add it to the childhood vax schedule. Lots and lots of blue checks reminding everyone that the CDC doesn’t mandate the shots on the schedule. Lots and lots of normal people shouting back that several states DO mandate large portions of the vax schedule and are set to have the mandate for the Covid shots go into affect as soon as its on the list. Also apparently adding a shot to the childhood vax schedule is an automatic protection from liability (gosh, if I had wondered WHY the childhood vax schedule had become so large in the last several years now I know why), which is not a good thing considering the complete lack of testing done on children.


LawDog’s blog

I discovered LawDog’s blog years ago. If you’ve not been reading it you need to do so. He tells awesome stories from his childhood and officer of the law days. And he has a good head on his shoulders when it comes to identifying bullshit.

However, its possible, that when you click the link above it may not work. Or that the front page will work, but not the older stuff.

See, when the Nordstream pipeline had its issues LawDog dug up his memories as a child of an oilfield engineer and typed up a couple posts. And they went viral. And then some idiot decided he needed to be punished for it and set bots to blowing up his bandwidth allowance.

I have issues when it comes to letting the idiots win. So when another member of the community pointed out that LawDog’s posts are still available via the WayBack Machine I decided I had to help share the love.

Nordstream

Nordstream II

The wayback machine can be slow to load, so be patient with it. And bookmark LawDog’s blog’s main link while you’re at it. He’ll be back up on Nov 1. He’s worth reading. Don’t let the idiots win, k?
