Anybody who knows India, or brazil if you like, know that personal health and hygiene are on a way different level than us here on the “western” part of the world. And that’s just one difference. Look at Japan or Sweden or so for a real good comparison. (Or Uganda.. you’d be amazed )

  • When Oliver says the vaccine is only 95% effective he is either playing ignorant or misleading the public. NOT A SINGLE member of the Moderna or the Pfizer vaccine control groups were even hospitalized much less died. The 95% effective figures comes from the number of people who became infected with COVID.

  • All you need to know- ever since SARS they have had a vaccine. SARS turned out to not be an outbreak, thus they shelved the vaccine. Enter Corona, the they utilized the SARS vaccine and updated it with a new cocktail. Let’s not forget that SARS too was a Corona virus.

  • if 60% of adults are vaccinated, including 90% of the more vulnerable groups, then the risk of someone caching the virus goes down significantly. since the chance of getting seriously sick is not very high, if your not overweight and not over 70, then the total risk profile should be acceptable. I'm not saying you shouldn't get a vaccine. Al my extended family is vaccinated. I'm saying that the hysteria in coverage like this video, is way out of proportion. most of the high risk demographics are already vaccinated, or will be soon. and the rest are simply not at an incredibly high risk, as John would like us to think.

  • Problem is, you can't convince most of these people with numbers. They'll just moved the goalposts. I was talking to someone who seemed to think that the total number of covid deaths was around 100k, and when I told him it was over 3 million, he just switched to the argument of "oh, a lot of people die every year anyway". Same person refuses to get the vaccine, even though he was directly offered one without having to go through paperwork, because he wants to "wait and see how everyone else handles it". Dude, you think that "fear" is the biggest factor in covid deaths and that if people aren't afraid and think happy thoughts, they won't contract it. Don't act like you give a shit about the science, you just want to stay in woo woo land where everything is easy for you, specifically.

  • Imagine Tarzan playing with letter blocks, each block made a sound, he put a few together and it sounded out (GOD) he was so excited he had to build another and it sounded out (WORD) he was puzzled by the second one so he gave it to (GOD) and that’s when the WORD became GOD! he went around putting a GOD given WORD off on everything else and the people began to worship it. Next thing you know the Word God had orchestrated a scenery and drawing pictures to communicate became a thing of the past! God the father was the Word, he was good for Mother Earth! And now...Here we are today! The father (ABCDEF) had a son (abcdef) and they both had the power of the (Holy Ghost) spiritual word that manifested the numbers. alpha and omega, alphabet and number. The son was rejected, but later the people came to accept him for with the sons letters came speed writing. Consciousness; conducted-science-adventurous-awareness (T t word) cross is the sword stands for the words in your head you live and die by. Guard your mind with a crown of thorns. 10 simple commandments 1-thou shalt not have any other Gods before me (nothing comes before your ABC’s and 123’s) 2-thou shalt not make unto the any graven images (don’t worship idols statues and carvings they will not provide, your ABC’s and 123’s do, don’t let that confuse you) 3- thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy Gods name in vain (only a fool hates to learn) 4- remember the sabbath day, to keep it Holy (you will need time to put this all together in your head) 5- honor thy father and thy mother (Happy parents lead a happy house hold) 6- Thou shalt not murder (No one learns a lesson from the grave) 7- thou shalt not commit adultery (a child with divided parents is divided within) 8- thou shalt not steal (when you get what you wanted you’ll find it’s not what you really want at all) 9-Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor (it’s a lesson you can avoid) 10- thou shalt not covet (What one sees isn’t always what it seems) “The God of all Mankind comes from the spirit within them which they transformed into the Word giving it a separate body to lead them in the world in which they exist”

  • This probably will never see the eyes of a single sane American. 1st the human corona virus, aka the common cold. Covid 19 has mutated how many times? 2nd why does any sane individual want a vaccine that the cdc admits in print, under the instructions for the so called gold standard for testing ..... drum roll ..the RT PCR test, under emergency instructions for use, page 41 under performance charactaristics, clearly state.... the cdc has NOT amassed enough of this virus to make an accurate testfor this virus, so answer this, how does one have a vaccine for a virus that we do not have an accurate test to determine. Further the nobel peace prize winning inventor of the rt pcr test, has stated that the rt pcr is not designed to isolate and identify viruses. Further on this point, for generations we have not had a vaccine for the common cold, but now we do? No we do not! Covid 19 maybe, a strain of the corona virus, which does not covere mutated corona virus, which is no longer covid 19. Now the shame muzzles. Will do NOTHING. What do we know as science fact? We do know the corona virus in general in 6 to 12 micron in size. A h.e.p.a filter will clear particulates down to 3 micron, and an ulpa filter will remove down to 1 micron. A cloth or paper mask, a n 95 mask....on an unshaved non fit tested face ..... that like attepting to stop a golf ball with a volley ball net. Want science. Then shut your fucking mouth, and start stating facts. Not hype. Jack asses. Further on the size of the corona virus. A molecule that is 6-12 micron ....l will stay airborn for up to 4 days in a stagnant air environment such as a big box store. Now lets talk more numbers.... the cdc released mortality for 2020..... hmmmm cancer #1, heart conditions #2, covid 19 #3....... weird, nobody died in 2020 of the cold or the flu. Trump in office, everybody died of ccovid, biden in office, anyone that died of covid had an underlying condition. You assholes used the media, to see just how fucking ignorant the general public is, beta test complete. Nobody doe actual factual research. Try these... www. .... /

  • Working the COVID ICU as an RN since March of 2020, the beginning of this Pandemic, I can say COVID SUCKS! BUT, not a chance in hell I would get the vaccine! You all are so comfortable taking a vaccine for a virus that has been used to control your everyday lives. I watched many people die right before my eyes every week, and it was miserable, but this doesn't motivate me to get motivates me to continue to eat healthy, engage in proper hygiene, exercise, and use caution in crowded settings...aka things I have been doing since way before COVID! The reality off this pandemic is the majority of people are unhealthy, don't take care of their bodies, and don't intervene until its too late! WAKE UP PEOPLE! Take your health seriously! 95% of my patients were beyond unhealthy, and had multiple comorbidities...the majority of them smoke, the majority of them haven't been to a gym in years, the majority of them couldn't tell you the last time they had a physical or blood work done etc...yes, there have been the anomalies where I had a 31 year old die who was healthy as can be, but, this was not the norm! This COVID Vaccine is another tool for control and another game to keep you fear driven people living how you are. I'm not an antivaxer overall, but the Flu Vaccine and COVID Vaccine, they are garbage! And to end this off, where were my flu patients this year?!?! Working 8 hospitals in 3 years, including Yale, and John Hopkins, I can say the flu is beyond rapid during flu seasons, but guess what, I did not take care of 1 flu patient in the ICU this year! As a travel RN who is in multiple groups of RNs in total of over 100,000 nurses, we did a poll and found that only 100 of these RNs out of the 23,000 who participated took care of a flu patient this past flu season! WTF! No, I won't sit here and share conspiracy theories and all that crap, no I'm not a far right "Trumper", I'm actually more left and liberal than I am right, no I'm not saying COVID is "fake", I'm saying take ownership of your health and stop waiting until its too late to make changes...maybe put that cigarette down and pick up a dumbbell, maybe get off the internet and get on a treadmill...if this hurts your feelings, good, maybe it'll help motivate you to make some changes and I won't meet you on your death bed!
