More from the Ethical Skeptic: the CDC had a problem.

The new booster might not be all that. (I mean, they only tested it on a handfull of mice before releasing it, why would there be a problem with it??)

Guy who approved the new booster based on a study involving 8 mice, says the new studies on humans are to small to be useful.

Japanese study on vax induced myocarditis vs general pop. Folks, every time I see numbers on this they just get worse. Seriously, think twice before getting a shot, or a booster.

Scientists from Switzerland show that the MRA vax’s may injure the hearts of ALL recipients, even if they don’t end up needing medical attention. Guys, damage to your heart is a bad thing, even if its “minor”.

One of the most respected cardiologists in the world is being stripped of his credentials due to his take on the vax.

Vax trials in children noted that there was a concerning spike in RSV in the kids involved. Now that RSV numbers are spiking nationwide the .GOV wants to vax even harder.

Study looking at vax’d 6th graders, in a primary school (where they are the only vax’d students), vs in a middle school (where there’s a much higher rate of vax’d students). Results: But our estimates of indirect effects are small and statistically insignificant: despite a 20 percentage point increase in vaccination rates across all grades, we find essentially no difference in COVID-19 incidence between sixth graders in middle schools and sixth graders in elementary schools.

In Germany the vax’d make up most of the patients in the ICU

Paper showing “covid is leading cause of death in children” was thoroughly debunked, so they just narrowed the time studied and re-issued the study. Spoiler, covid is still only #8 on the list with less than 3% of the deaths.

Disney ends vax mandate for actors

“…we believe that universal masking may be especially useful for mitigating effects of structural racism in schools, including potential deepening of educational inequities.”

Study on how effective masks are accidentally proves that covid rates are higher in vaccinated students

Finland (who already had one of the lowest covid death rates) says its covid death rate may be to high by 40%.

Lockdowns: they didn’t ACTUALLY happen, people weren’t ACTUALLY arrested for taking their kids to the park, or wave boarding by themselves, or going camping, or…

Sweden refused to lock down, and had the least covid restrictions, also has lowest covid caused death, and lowest pandemic response caused deaths, and lowest excess mortality

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.

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 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?
