People who oppose vaccinations tend to be antivaxx, lol.

QuoteIs there a legitimate discussion to be had on why a proven strategy for suppressing common diseases should be abandoned?

AFAIK, Jason hasn't argued against vaccinations or abandoning them. If I missed it then okay, yeah that's some dumb shit, but I don't think he has.
Every day is a good day to *remove from server* an autocrat.

Vaccine-induced antibodies more effective against covid than natural immunity

US excess deaths pass 1 million mark

QuoteIn 2019, before the pandemic, the CDC recorded 2.8 million deaths. But in 2020 and 2021, as the virus spread through the population, the country recorded roughly a half-million deaths each year in excess of the norm.
So that's basically 3.3 million deaths/year instead of the expected 2.8 million from all causes.  Quite a significant increase.

There's even a handy chart:  my state was one of the "lucky" ones, with *only* ~10% more deaths than normal (the only states that fared better were Maine, New Hampshire, and Hawaii (what do they have in common?)  Most of the rest of the Bible Belt is around 20%, with several standouts of viral devastation - Arizona, Wyoming, and Mississippi (what do they have in common?)

QuoteOther countries that reacted more quickly or took more aggressive postures to control viral spread early on were able to limit their death toll as well as long-term economic impacts, he said.

“We did not handle it well. That’s glaringly obvious,” he said. “The other countries got hit by the same virus, but no country has experienced the number of deaths we have, and even if you adjust for population, we are among the highest in the world.”

I'm fairly confident that acquiring a mild case of COVID has resulted in a change in smell. Months ago I noticed that certain things did not smell normal. Toothpaste, cheap chocolate, onions, and other things have an odd smell that I can only describe as a musty chemical smell. I did not at any time loose my sense of smell. I have not noticed any changes in memory or concentration, just a very weird additional odor associated with certain substances.


Brain shrinkage linked to COVID-19

COVID-19 may shrink the brain's gray matter, primarily in areas of the brain involved in smell and memory processing, a large study suggests.

These distinct changes in brain structure crop up in both people who required hospitalization for COVID-19 and those who had less severe infections, according to the study, published March 7 in the journal Nature. And the tissue loss and damage seen in these study participants was "above and beyond" the structural brain changes that normally occur with age, said Jessica Bernard, a neuroscientist and associate professor at Texas A&M University, who was not involved in the study. ...

Yeah, how come we never see a bunch of news articles about all the vaccine deaths? 🤔 (which I assume are just as numerous as the disease deaths, if not moreso)

300,000 covid deaths could've been prevented with the shot

QuoteTheir findings suggest that at least "every second person" who died from COVID since vaccines became available might have been saved by getting the shot.

QuoteWest Virginia, Wyoming, Tennessee, Kentucky and Oklahoma lead the list of states where the most lives could have been saved by COVID-19 vaccines, while states with higher vaccination rates, such as Washington, D.C., Massachusetts, Puerto Rico, Vermont and Hawaii, showed the lowest numbers of vaccine-preventable deaths.

True.  I just don't believe in mandates.  I believe in vaccinations.

I also believe in wearing seatbelts in a car and wearing helmets while riding motorcycles, yet I oppose those mandates as well.
White privilege is being a lifelong racist, then being sent to the White House twice because your running mate is a minority.

No Biden, no KKK, no Fascist USA!

You mean that because I wear my seatbelt, I am making spurious claims about opposing mandates?

Imagine if I said that traffic lights are good and prevent unnecessary deaths and then fought to have them removed.  That's how you sound.
