This is not what left wing progressives want to hear!

The left tends to follow science. After evaluating the outcomes of people with/without masks AND with/without vaccination, the science showed the use of a mask AFTER BEING FULLY VACCINATED was not really needed in most instances.

Facts have a liberal bias.

Of course conservative health scientists are reluctant to make recommendation until ever possible question has been tested. Ie, keep everyone masked while we study the matter forever.

Hats off to the pros who were willing to make the recommendation based on common sense and best available data.

Success does require cooperation of the public. Waiting longer risked loss of public trust.

Good point.

The Democrats are feeling this now, as credibility continues to decline as the left seems to cling harder on policies they should never have subscribed to in the first place....or at least a tenuous subscription that gave them room to walk back if it is in their interest to. Reminds me of what Lyndon Johnson said about being in Viet Nam, when he compared it to having a wolf by the ears: you absolutely don't want to be there but you dare not let go.

I see you are not in on the new plan.
99% COVID hospitalizations are people who have not been vaccinated. This does not mean that if you are vaccinated you will not get COVID, merely that the effects will be mild and it is quite possible that you are a carrier. Unmasking the whole population will lead to surge in the infection and hospitalization of antivaxers. Some will see the light and reform, some will see the other light (the bright white one) and not never vote again. Diabolical eh?

LBJ had a number of memorable quotes.

My favorite involved FBI director J Edgar Hoover. A number of presidents before Johnson wanted to get rid of Hoover. Yet his detailed files on many powerful people prevented them from firing him. The quote was "I'd rather have Hoover in the tent p***ing out than outside the tent p***ing in".

Of course at its core Hoover had something on everybody that counted. Put another way, they all had something that they didn't want to be known by the public.

I remember a different LBJ quote after signing the Republicans Civil Rights act into law. "Now we'll have the n#%@@%$# voting Democrat for the next 100 years."

You certainly don’t remember LBJ saying that. The first reference to him saying that was in a book published in 1995. No proof was offered for the quote.

But..... LBJ was known to use the word in private conversation, so it wouldn’t have been out of character.

Much to the chagrin of the progressive left, the CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, released a new policy, saying

People fully vaccinated against Covid-19 do not need to wear masks or practice social distancing indoors or outdoors, except under certain circumstances

This is not what left wing progressives want to hear!



On the contrary, I'm of the opinion that if you're vaccinated and fully protected, it's fine to ditch the mask. I have. If you're not vaccinated, you should wear a mask, but at this point if you're not vaccinated it's clear you're an idiot who worries about 5G microchipping and Jewish space lasers.

For starters, there are no studies on sars-cov-2 that shows natural immunity nor immunity for people infected with sars-cov-1. Further, Principia Scientific International (PSI) is a conspiracy blog run by an internet ghost that goes by the name of John O’Sullivan. Principia Scientific International has never done any scientific studies, nor have they funded any scientific research.

For those who are interested in truth you may want to put a link to the original EU report. Not holding my breath

1) Yes we know that some people have immunity and we have known this from the start. People similar practices are equally susceptible to getting COVID. What is not fully understood is why it can be serious and life threating for some and nothing to other. Previous exposure other COVID strains is part of the answer as are genetics, health, age, sex. I bet you drank the bleach, it works

2) 600,000 dead in the USA from COVID. As of today less than a dozen from vaccine complications. Did you ever get get to that math part about > (greater than). Now if you rely on Tucker Carlson for news may be immune to COVID. Being brain dead is le leading cause of death and it does not count as a COVID death

3) No boogeyman under my bed, but it explains a lot. Vaccinated people who contract COVID are 98% less likely than unvaccinated people to be hospitalized with COVID. Did you get to that in the report or did you choose to ignore it because it did not agree with you delusion. Untested FALSE, unapproved FALSE, dangerous FALSE and evidently deadly FALSE, vaccine offers immunity against a Corona virus TRUE

4) Many are immune, but you don't know who. Your choice, no one is forcing you. I don't care because I may be naturally immune but to be on the safe side I am vaccinated too.

Principia Scientific is about as scientific as the Church of Scientology.

It is up to the reader to make that judgement and not to regurgitate garbage just because it fits his or her viewpoint.

In reference to the 1,500% over count. Did you actually read the article that was referenced? Let me quote to help you "The CDC website admitted that only around 6% of COVID recorded deaths were due entirely to the Coronavirus" . This is not news, we have known this all along. In most cases COVID s a contributing factor and without COVID most of the 600,000 deaths would not have happened. A typical example: patient is admitted with positive COVID test and raspatory distress. Patient dies of heart attack. COVID or not COVID related death.

If anything the COVID deaths are a gross undercount. Take the average death rate of the USA and compare it to 2020. 2020 is about 15% higher than normal. Why? COVID, Severe weather, and old white guys offing themselves in record numbers among other factors. Count the specific incident cases and subtract those from the total and you have the COVID death rate.

Here is the link from the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7014e1.htm

They are about the same and they are not mutually exclusive. Disinformation is preventing a coherent strategy against the other.

The Chinese objective is economic domination and control where needed, in the world through that domination. They are also painfully aware that isolationism does not work and in order to have economic domination viable and vibrant trading partners. With that will come trading equality. Squawking about the unfairness of China is a waste of time. Engaging and competing is the answer. That is hard to do through the constant squabbling.

I read it. And given that only 6% of COVID recorded deaths are due entirely to COVID then that means Covid deaths are exaggerated by over 1,500%.

Now did you read the CDC report on the 2020 mortality rate?
In brief, the US mortality rate rose 15.9% from 2019 to 2020 in pure numbers that is from 715 to 828 people per 100,000. In other words: in 2020 an additional 113 people per 100,000 died than otherwise would have been expected. With a population of 33 million the total rise in deaths is simply 33,000,000/100,000*11= 372,900.

So 372,900 people died in 2020 more than expected. The figures are reasonably consistent nation wide on a per 100,000 basis with a few hot spots. So what nationwide phenonium occurred in 2020 to explain this jump in deaths. The only reasonable answer is COVID 19. Now this is not saying that all of these deaths were caused directly by COVID, merely that if COVID had not happened most of these deaths would not have happened.

To say that only 6% of these deaths were directly caused by COVID is an artifact of the medical reporting process. Doctors are required too list a primary cause of death. If a patients lungs are totally congested as a result of COVID and subsequently their heart stops due to oxygen starvation, it is reasonable to say that the cause of death was a heart attack and that COVID was a contributing factor. However the medical statistics will only report the direct cause of death, which is misleading.
Taken to an illogical extreme, no one would have looked for a COVD vaccine but would have focused on methods of getting the heart more oxygen, portable ECMO systems ect.

Reporting that the death rate directly related to COVID is 1500% overstated, is misleading and possibly disingenuous to the underlying undeniable truth. It should cause the reader to question the motives of the speaker and their data sources. This is an allowable Ad Hominem question when statements are so misleading that they lead one to question the competence or motives of a speaker.

Note: If you wish to contest "undeniable truth", gainsay has to be supported by factual evidence.
