what i’m learning – things can change overnight.. (expo ness)
no more same song
interesting what ‘non-essential’ gatherings are disbanded: schools, work-places, (supposed to’s.. of school/work et al), mega-gatherings, gyms (people have time to go outside more.. natural movement), airports, restaurants, ..
and that (hopefully) more are getting a wak-up call.. zoom out view.. to the big monopoly game we keep perpetuating.. when they see ‘impossibilities‘ happen ie: debt/rent/mortgage suspended/dismissed, reset of the game – everyone getting new money – no strings, people bypassing money exchange just to get resources to people in need
10 people or less – missing piece #2 – be w fam – 7ish people – 30 min/day

the game is over..? (more on virus ness page)
“We must dare to say it: it is not the virus that kills, it is the chronic pathologies that make a CoV-2 SARS infection potentially fatal to certain patients already heavily affected by these societal diseases, whereas it is benign for healthy people.”

“It is possible to take this situation as an occasion to not be so mindless and habituated and to think twice about what really was necessary,” he said.

For those feeling as if things are a bit out of their control and looking for something to ease their anxiety, Baur encourages people to stop looking for rules or policies to follow.

we have a unique opp to realize just how silly all that is and just cut it out.. we need to focus on what’s really important to us.. and that would mean.. not going back to sleep.. can we do that.. i don’t know.. there’s going to be huge pressure on us to ‘get back to work’
There was never any lockdown. There was just middle-class people hiding while working-class people brought them things.

fb – dean beeler: in the UK 92% of citizens have covid antibodies but only 56% are fully vaccinated. We’re ignoring natural immunity and acting very weirdly because of it.
Vaccine makers Pfizer and Moderna are on track to notch billions more in sales than previously expected, as new booster-shot strategies and concerns about the Delta variant push demand, and the companies raise prices in the U.S. and elsewhere https://t.co/Jto6ZwwxZB

if true.. (via 10 yr military dr)
’20 deaths in all active duty for 2020 military from covid.. vaccinating everybody.. already had tumors and & 80 cases of myocarditis which has 5 yr mortality rate.. so w vaccine killed more military than covid did.. lukemia – 48/yr on avg.. now 229.. myocarditis in 31 yrs 317 cases.. now.. this year 1113.. so you can see the ongoing numbers.. so .. why are we not stopping this.. we’ve stopped others for far less.. respiratory vaccine because of 22 deaths of infants.. stopped h1n1 after 53 serious adverse events.. we are now doing 53/day .. we have to look at world view.. if you think we’re fighting a virus.. a victim.. need to fight like a war and determine who the enemy is’
I don’t believe that Covid is imaginary.
I do believe it’s severely overblown, the response is disproportionate and more deadly than the virus, and politicians, Big Pharma & media elites have used it as an excuse to seize power, transfer wealth, and create unethical profits. https://t.co/3N0B57nlvs

The notion that OTHER people are mostly responsible for your personal health & safety is absurd. Always has been.
People shouldn’t intentionally harm each other, obviously. But they are not required to entertain your demands, delusions and phobias, at all costs.
Life has risks.

The expectation that complete strangers must medicate themselves, or completely alter their normal human behaviours to make YOU ‘feel safe’ is immature and entitled.
And using the force of the state to try to mandate it is truly fascistic.
Chill out and just be normal.

Schools usually enforce child vaccinations. With COVID-19, that job is falling to private businesses

didn’t read article.. guessing it’s about the ‘change’ from public to private..
but ‘schools enforce vaccinations’

@GreatDismal: Today I got the ramped-up seniors-only flu shot in one arm and that kick-ass new shingles vaccine in the other, but what I really want is the COVID booster, which I can’t get til Dec 23. If you‘ve had chickenpox, you need the latter, btw.
oh my.. a new shot w every variant .. till when? wonder what that’s doing to us..
It’s early in #Omicron days, but this sounds about right so far.
Much of civilization is turning from dread and emergency measures towards a collective shrug.

In a social sense, a pandemic ends when people get used to living with the ongoing presence of a particular pathogen.
So by eliciting no more than a half-hearted response, the Omicron surge might mark the end of the pandemic.

@TheLastDegree I am quite sure inflation will kill more than omikron. Inflation just doesn’t have as good marketing as covid-19

Everybody talks Omicron at the Christmas table. Nobody talks inflation. Smoke & Mirrors.
@Sadenochill @KCPubHealth It’s nuts that it’s this hard to find booster appointments! Everyone doing all this research and spending hours trying to get appointments. Smdh

“Just get vaccinated” is the pandemic equivalent of the “just vote” response to fascism

I’ve gotten every vaccination & voted in every election. I’m still not safe.
