This should be a sticky post and it should be on the test

The number of covid patient cases in the USA hospitals that have NOT been vaccinated
Shouldn't that tell people something?
It should be one must be careful. Hopefully most people know that vaccines are not 100%, there is never 100% protection, however, the protection that COVID19 vaccines provide (Pfizer and Moderna) are very high. The FDA's threshold for approval is only 50%, these vaccines have above 90% efficacy which is quite good for a vaccine. You don't even get close to that with the Flu vaccine. However, this efficacy was based on the original virus. Now we have variants, this brings vaccine efficacy down, some variants bring the levels down even further. In America, it is only Pfizer and Moderna, so highest efficacy, but for the Delta variant you will not get as high efficacy. I don't know what the real numbers are but based on testing they found that Moderna offers the highest efficacy, only a few percentage points between Moderna and Pfizer, so perhaps for Delta, 80% protection from hospitalisation. So that number you see 97%, that might change soon and real quick. With variants becoming predominant you will see more and more fully vaccinated people in hospitals, STILL, that should tell people something - it's better to have some protection than none, and even with variants you still have a high protection from vaccines, high enough, so it's better to have let's say eventually 20% of vaccinated people in hospitals, than several times that for people who develop severe symptoms.
ALSO another thing to consider, if fully vaccinated people are exposed to too many infections around them, chances are they may develop severe symptoms - it might impact vaccine efficacy even lower.
Within 6 months time, we will have new variants this time that will bring down efficacy even lower, and by that time it's likely the protection will have faded. As long as there are too many infections going around, mutations will occur, it is near certain that in 6-12 months we will need a newly adapted vaccine for variants, for NOW, current vaccines protect well enough against variants. But if people want to act like a bunch of cocks and ignore the facts, what will happen is that the vaccines will be rendered almost useless, or efficacy reduced so much that it will cause an overflow in hospitalisations - it is the people who will be fully vaccinated who will feel betrayed - all because of a % of the population that did not suck it up and go get the damn vaccine - herd immunity could have been reached by now, but no, people would rather believe in aliens, UFO, and other quackery than that - YES I understand people's concern about vaccines, but let's see now, the risks are almost insignificant compared to the high risk of COVID19 variants, these new variants are so infectious that eventually every person who is non vaccinated will get it, it's a matter of WHEN and not IF - but people are still stubborn - and as long as Biden is in power, don't expect anything of the likes of mandatory vaccination or any drastic measures to restore order - In Canada and America, it's wait until disaster happens act later..........Much the same mentality here from the muppets who run the show - Our PM has opened borders again - BIG mistake - our borders should be CLOSED for all non essential travel, that's the only way to prevent the variants from coming in here, people should keep their snotty little virus at home, I'm sure the United States do not want more virus, and neither do we, but opening the borders is so irresponsible, but there again this muppet of a PM is going to election soon and odds are he is going to be re-elected (this tells you a lot about Canadians, who are willing to vote corruption into power, 3 times in a row).
What is scary is that the other vaccines (J&J, Astra, Sputnik and Sinovac, etc...) show a much reduced efficacy with variants, in the likes of 50-60%. In China cases have risen, in Wuhan, but in China they have an effective weapon - discipline - they can control an outbreak when it happens......In other countries, there is total lack of obedience and discipline, so their reliance on vaccines is stronger. America should have been able by now to reach herd immunity, they have access to vaccines sine December, the whole vaccine campaign in America is a big sham, and EPIC failure and total lack of leadership of the sitting President, the magician Biden who promised to crush the virus.........yeah good job on that
Some states have less than half, that's absurd - that's crazy, vaccination is a collective effort, if not enough of the population is vaccinated, it renders your protection almost useless, because statistically eventually you may get it strong as you are continually exposed to the virus. People who are fully vaccinated now should not assume they are protected forever, and should continue applying the protective measures - mask wearing and distance, no hugging, no kissing, no nothing, and avoiding risky activities.
This is not to say people that have been vaccinated won't get covid. It is to say they are
greater protected from it then those that have not been fully vaccinated.
Right, you still get infected if you are vaccinated, but the difference is, your body is already primed and trained to recognise the virus and stop it before it gets a chance to do the damage, BUT meanwhile you can still shed the virus, turn positive in tests and even spread the virus .
Very few wars have been due to religion. Very very few. This relates all the way back
to the Bible and all throughout recorded history.
Well aside from WW1 and WW2, I am referring mainly to the conflicts and unrest in the middle east and other countries, for sure it has to do with religion and territory - there has always been tension between 2 specific religions, and I think you know which ones I am referring to, think Palestine and Israel as a clue - then you have a religion that wants to kill and abolish another religion labelling them as infidels - certain wars inside specific countries were all about that - In some countries like Lebanon it has been the case, and in the middle east the same, mind you it is the fanatic version of the religion that people have mangled for their own agenda, but still, religion plays a big role in many conflicts, if you are a particular religion you might be disliked by another specific religion because they will claim you took their territory (by you, they mean that religion) -
War is almost always due to 'greed, money, power, and resources', not to mention
Yes traditional wars, yes, that's true, but isolated wars and conflicts, mostly territorial and religious.
Then you have terrorist groups that form, their mission is to kill as many people (infidels) who do not subscribe
to their doctrine, if that is not religion then what is ....
Some people point to Hitler and point to religion as the cause. Nothing could be further
from the truth.
Of course Hitler is a different story that has nothing to do, it's more the fear that the jews would take over, his hate
had nothing to do with religion. It's kind of ironic that he hated jews, wasn't his first love Jewish ? Anyhow,
he pretty much hated everything that moved except his supporters - but one thing Hitler did not do is send planes into buildings, hijack planes, or use God almighty's name to justify murder, he had one mission, but for different reasons than one religion NOW that wants to eliminate another. Fortunately for most of the world, Hitler lost,
but sometimes I wonder, what would the world be had he won, it would be significantly different, personally I have nothing against any religion - BUT..............................I will NEVER respect ANY religion or cult that uses my creator's name to justify murder, NEVER. Hitler acted on his OWN accord, today, a specific mangled religion is acting allegedly on their God's accord and orders which is absolutely bloody absurd !!! and my blood BOILS when I hear their justification that they will end up in heaven for doing such acts as allegedly dictated by God, it makes me sick, because I know that this is not the reality, no God would condone such acts - and these fanatics took a peaceful religion and turned it into a violent one.
So my questions for history, what if Hitler had won what would world be like.........
What if Palestinian land was not taken, would the world be in such unrest today, would there still be bad blood between 2 specific religions......
Comparing Hitler to what is happening today is apples and oranges, Hitler acted by his own accord, that does not make his action any more justifiable, he was a monster, but compared to what is happening today, it's a walk in the park. The violence and unrest happening today is very concerning. Hitler was stopped - unfortunately today the terrorist groups are taking ground and these movements are expanding everywhere, they are hardly stoppable.
That turd who orchestrated 9/11 will surely be disappointed finding out that he is definitely not in heaven, he was not acting of his own accord but dictated by mangled scripture that promised him heaven - so disgusting.
Reading the Bible tells us a lot about truth, facts, nature, humanity, and love for all.
It's a very interesting read of which most has come to pass.
Yeah you can say that again
Truth / facts, overshadowed by fake news and QUACKERY;
Nature ? Being destroyed by humans, global warming an issue, ice caps melting, half the earth on fire, fires everywhere, out of control, yep we are on the right path to destroy whatever is left of nature;
Humanity ? ahahaha so much for that, we live in the me myself and F****** I era, don't look for proof, COVID19 pandemic is the perfect example of how people are so divided and unwilling to work together in solidarity to win this war!!!
Love ? Let's see, divorces on the rise, brother killing brother, sister killing sister, parents killing their kids, family killing their own (there is a passage about that in the Bible, about people turning against each other) we are definitely in those times, if people are not convinced then they have issues - True love is almost nonexistent - it's been replaced by lust and fake. This pandemic has surfaced the HATE in people, road rage galore, more shootings, more crime, more violence, and yet you still have a bunch of people who are afraid of getting the vaccine because they don't wanna grow horns and start talking in reverse.
