Repeat after me...
I've been waiting to get COVID so that I can be sassy like "I am grateful to not be vaccinated nor boosted so my symptoms are mild" but for some gosh darn reason I just haven't gotten COVID yet. Thanks, Dr. Zelenko.
They're reciting The Covid Prayer (or The Covid Catechism).
The political hacks - "I'm grateful to be boosted" - the rest of us - "I'm grateful to be sane."
I'm grateful for growing up at a time and place that had top grades and test scores for high school students in America, and that I had the foresight to squeeze as much advanced learning out of that as I could.
It saved me from being scientifically and linguistically illiterate, such that I would mistake a Vaccine for an mRNA payload carried inside a phospholipid nanoparticle, meant to infect muscle tissue at the site of injection, but which could get carried by my bloodstream to any number of vital organs in my body.
I'm also grateful for a family that said things to me as a child like "just because all your friends jump off a bridge, it doesn't mean you should, too."
"So very thankful. It could have been worse. It is bad for the brain to read a few scientific papers and realize we have been misled."
It's a Pharmafia (ht Matthew) payroll call.
The Covidian true believers are soothed every time that fatuous doxology is recited.
compiling these into a single place is a great idea. thanks for doing this.
My wife, children and I are all unvaxxed. We've been exposed to Covid continuously over the last two years. My wife had alpha asymptomaticly. My son and I caught omicron a year later. He had a fever for two hours, took a nap and was fine. I had congestion for an evening.
My brother's and sisters are all vaxxed and boosted. One was sick and tested positive for two weeks. Another two were sick with Covid for a week. They're all grateful to be vaxxed and boosted. 🙄
This makes me sick! Are all these people in on this scam!! They are all murderers as far as I’m concerned or are they all that stupid!!!!
You missed Anthony Fauci (not a politician?), plus that they all seem to have started with Paxlovid , even though the symptoms are so very 'mild' thanks to the 4 injections. Must be a coordinated marketing campaign.
I especially appreciate your take on the $530 paxlovid doses and the whole "it's just free!" mindset. we need to keep an eye on this sort of "business model" in the near future in the US. it's going to dominate more and more of the economy, from Pharma to energy to food to even technology. the whole economy will move to this model rapidly. it has become the biggest game in town. it may soon become the only game in town.
I fortunately had Covid prior to getting vaccinated. I would like to take the opportunity to thank my innate immune system for my mild symptoms. My cell-mediated immunity really dealt some tough blows to the SARS-Cov-2 virus and didn't allow it to really even make me feel bad (ok, I had a 100.5 fever for half a day & some back pain). Here's looking at you NK cells - I wouldn't have made it without you!
Congressman Sean Casten.
Yes, this is the Paxlovid marketing campaign in action. Amazing how many politicians they can afford after all that tax money spent on their products. Cute how it rhymes, too, right? "Got COVID, take PAXLOVID."
This campaign is also to normalize getting covid after vaccination so everyone takes it in stride and forgets about how the vaccine was supposed to do something other than injure and kill people.
One positive aspect to this is we can use politicians medical advice as a contrary indicator. Whatever medical tips that show up in the tweets of a large group of public figures are sure to be harmful.
