The Lie Just Fell Apart
[Comments enabled]

The UK Government has just made a statement on the lethality of the Covid-19 virus:

If you are young and healthy there is nothing to fear.

Well, ok, that's not exactly what they said.

Oh, wait, it is.

They are going to deliberately infect people from 18-30.  This is a clear statement that they do not believe it is dangerous for those people to be infected, otherwise ethics would not permit such a study to be done.

Medical ethics boards do not allow you to deliberately put people in harm's way.  Therefore to be able to get the approval to run such a study the government has determined that statistically-speaking there is no material risk to these individuals.

Therefore, you may take from this that if you are young and healthy you may immediately:

  • Disregard all mask orders.  You need no protection.
  • Disregard all distancing orders.  You need no protection.
  • Congregate and intermingle with others as you wish.  You need no protection.

In other words from a standpoint of serious illness or death you're safe.

So have at it.

Tell all those maintaining you must do otherwise to shove their mandates up their ass.

PS: I'm also not responsible for your lifestyle choices or just plain bad fortune, nor the cost of same.

And they are going to pay you to do it

None of us want to do this if there is any appreciable risk, he said.

Participants, who will be paid 4,500 (about $6,235) for undergoing the trial, will also be monitored 24 hours a day for two weeks, with blood samples and nose swabs taken daily.

We always knew that under 50 and with no underlying health issues you were safe. The reason for lockdown was to interrupt the spread to the remainder.

@Petercoveney - Which is bull****, when between health care and homes you have 80% of the spread.

But heh, you go ahead and put up with your government ****ing you in the ass.

You must like it.

Which we all now know has completely failed! Why? It was all based on BS science and a LIE in the first place.

The government lies are well established:

"Face coverings" are a demonstrable lie. Only protection that can physically filter aerosol particles can make a difference. That cotton fabric over your mouth is worthless as viral protection and dangerous as a carrier of virus and bacteria.

"Lockdowns" to stop the spread - another lie, especially since most spread occurs in care centers, at home and industrial factories. Once the disease is widely dispersed in a population, which was the case with Covid in the USA in 2020, lockdowns are futile.

"15 days to slow the spread" - the greatest lie of all. The nature of disease transmission is the rate of spread is decelerating from very early on. Hospitals as a whole have not been overwhelmed and any crushes of hospitalization have been of short duration.

Sweden, now Florida and India with its billion plus population show the Covid "experts" to be frauds. They cannot explain the virus behavior in these locations because the reality reveals their lies, deceptions and duplicity.

Karl, I'd flat out ignore the mask mandates, but I live in a small town, and the stores can ban you from shopping at their stores, and if they do, there are very few options available. The mandates are a joke as Florida has proven by getting rid of the mandates.

So at exactly what point @Jacksparrow do the people decide that any organization that attempts to interfere with obtaining and enjoying the necessities of life, when one has the funds to pay for same, has committed attempted murder, and by doing so their entire genealogical line's lives is forfeit?

Couple of interesting points. A medical grade variant of the virus will be delivered via droplets into the nasal cavity. Still waiting to read a study demonstrating isolation and purification resulting in a pure sample. As a participant I would want just a saline solution with the virus, add some snot if you must, but no monkey kidney cell or whatever other frankenstein cell cultures youve grown accustomed to. Second point, how are they going to screen for evidence of prior exposure? How will they differentiate between all know. Coronaviruses? Third, post inoculation testing will involve the nasal mucosa and blood. But they should also be testing fecal stool as well as that will give you tons of data about immune response as its well understood that a majority of our immune system is associated with the gut microbiome. Im not opposed to this type of study. It is way overdue, but the investigators are focused on making new vaccines primarily. It appears this endeavor represents more state subsidized product development than the advancement of scientific knowledge.

Of course.

But, my point stands. It is an admission that it got through the ethics review, which means that medically such people are at statistically zero risk.

@Jacksparrow... before moving to Montana I've lived my life in the Bellingham / Ferndale area south down to Des Moines / Federal Way. I know the repressive government nanny state and sheeple issues you face.

There has GOT to be a few stores within driving distance for you. Head out on US 101 toward Elma, Montesano, and the Grays Harbor area. Or south to Chehalis /Centralia or other small towns in Lewis County. You may have to think about shopping outside of your Thurston County. It may be a 30 minute drive, but you can be honest to yourself at the least by not wearing that damn face covering.

If my county here in Western MT got mask crazy, I was planning on driving south to Salmon Idaho where there was no mask enforcement, and buy all my groceries and goods there. It is a bit less than 1 1/2 hrs each way, and involves going over Lost Trail Pass but it would be worth it to me to keep true to my beliefs.

Other than that, think about bailing out of Western WA, if you can!

I have a question. My aunt is a 30 year nurse with UPMC Pittsburgh. She was on the fence with getting the shot. She said she was really on the fence with it but the doctors were all getting it. The thing is, these doctors she works with are really intelligent people. I agree with her on that. Her question and mine is, why are they getting the shot? I would thing a doctor would be the first to question effectiveness or shortcomings of this vacine.
I also have a sister in law that does transcribing. The doctors she works for are forcing masks and disclosures on where their employees go. (out of state, big Christmas parties, etc.) Where are their brains?
Don't these so-called intelligent doctors do any of their own research?

In the small town where we live, the pharmacy got reported by some screeching Karen for letting people in without masks if they had a medical exemption last October. They were curbside pickup for several weeks and had several thousand in fines. Our witch of a governor now has OSHA doing her dirty work.

@Npgh: As our host has written, why take an untested vaccine for a highly survivable illness when there are effective therapies?

There are suggestions of yet another potential therapeutic strategy: Search on lysine, coronavirus,SARS Cov2, lysine / arginine ratio.

@Npgh,

I'm getting pressured to get the vax from dentist, orthodontist and oral surgery colleagues. They all think things will go back to normal. They all want the nice lifestyle back that they got used to living. But, I do have a few friends who are not getting the vax that are in the dental field and a friend who is a CEO of a supermarket chain. He's been reading the UK papers about some of the unknown/potential vax risks that have been mentioned on this forum. He wonders why the American media isn't reporting these things. As far as smarts are concerned, some of these guys I know who are multi-millionaires, still practicing in their 60's - don't want to die and they don't want to retire. It's fear. Plain and simple.

That WI doc is another mindless tool. Oh look at me. I am responsible. I am a hero. I don't actually think or question.

An educated moron. My sympathies are lacking considering her previous championing of the vaccine.

She killed her own child to satisfy her need for attention.
