I took a hard fall at work when my shoelace snagged a fitting on the floor.
I went to see my doctor about the damage I did to my knee.
I see him because he doesn’t rush you out of the office.
The nurses always know to subtract a couple pounds because of the gun in my pocket.
His dad was originally my doctor.
His dad and he had a practice that they sold to a hospital system, but after a while they left that office and opened a new one. The system had placed time limits on doctor's engagement with patients.
His dad retired.
I entered the office and was told to pull my mask up higher over my nose.
First question, “Do you intend to get the vaccine?”. “No chance.”
“Well let’s talk about that.”
Comparison to smallpox. Spoke of communities killing suspected carriers.
As if it was justified.
"Things will get worse not better." "The virus is mutating and getting more aggressive."
"One mask is not enough, two are better, not to protect you, but others around you."
"You can be asymptomatic and still infectious."
"Kids can be infected and it will do damage that won’t be known for years." (unlike the vax?).
"The previous administration were idiots and evil by not getting us a vax sooner."
But project Warp Speed?
"The vax was NOT rushed, the science was there early on but Trump dragged his feet."
"Fox was telling us not to wear masks."
I told him her was wrong about that, that their reminders to wear a mask irk me..
“Sure you might get sick for a while, but you won’t get sick from Covid.”
Except you might. And Florida seems to be doing OK.
After 35 minutes of indoctrination into fear, he looked at my knee.
This is part of a fear campaign to keep you in thrall to the government totalitarianism.
This is why I see so many people walking around with masks on in places that obviously don't really require them, since they can see that I am maskless.
Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (a real thing):
VAERS update: 77,279 *reported* Adverse Reactions, up from 60,460 last week. 929 Deaths, up from 653 last week.
We’ll Have Herd Immunity by April
"Testing has been capturing only from 10% to 25% of infections, depending on when during the pandemic someone got the virus.Applying a time-weighted case capture average of 1 in 6.5 to the cumulative 28 million confirmed cases would mean about 55% of Americans have natural immunity.Now add people getting vaccinated.As of this week, 15% of Americans have received the vaccine, and the figure is rising fast. Former Food and Drug Commissioner Scott Gottlieb estimates 250 million doses will have been delivered to some 150 million people by the end of March.There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection. As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory,I expect Covid will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life."
I talked to Neil Mammen again yesterday. Co-Founder of Every Black Life Matters
Really good stuff.
