It's going to get labeled Cow blood pressure medicine or something along those lines and then ridiculed.

Well, Aldi was out of sweetener packets... Didn't see any splenda or equal analogs... They still had the powdered Splenda.

I went to Fleet Farm yesterday (I was in the neighborhood) specifically to buy lemon drops.  1 pound bags of what appears to be Brach's candy rebranded as FF's for about $2.  They were out.  :horror:

Some previous studies on the benefits of ivermectin have data integrity issues and data on benefits of ivermectin do not hold up upon additional analysis.

No doubt the pill will be extraordinarily expensive in the USA, and quite cheap overseas.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Looks like the hospitals around here are plumb out of compassion, morality and humanity.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

For context, this is the Getty bazillionaire wedding. There were over 800 people. The justification was that they were all vaccinated. Sort of like Congress, where everyone is vaccinated and Pelosi is fining non-mask wearers thousands of dollars.

Interesting that vaccines are 100% effective in preventing covid in some settings, and only the same as flu vaccines in others.

...but the vaccine mandate doesn't apply to Congress and congressional aides right?  I heard that a while back.  Not sure if it actually happened.

Correct.  The Executive Branch can't mandate the Legislative Branch or it's employees.  That said, Pelosi has some sort of rules in place for masks for House members and their staff.  She could mandate the House (probably?  It might need a vote) to be vaccinated, but I don't believe she has done so.

Wasn't just a fish market. They sold all sorts of bush meat... They're highlighting a fish vendor ("Don't mention bats, whatever you do..."), but do you think that he might like a little variety?
 
It is entirely plausible that a lab worker sold off a bunch of "to be destroyed" beefs...

Couple that with the ridiculous "rejected by grade c horror movies" videos that our media just purely loved...
 
I particularly like the style of the one at about 0:45 where the "guy who died right there" breaks his fall and wiggles to be more comfy.

Using data from our city health dept dashboard as of today:

71.28% of COVID-19 cases are in age ranges 49 years and under.
93.9% of all deaths are in age ranges 50 years and over and in what is essentially a very steep Bell Curve centered somewhere around 75-80 yrs of age.

Overall average mortality rate: 1.3%
Average mortality rate, 49 years and younger: 0.12%
Average mortality rage, 50 years and older: 4.40%

No mention of co-morbidities or contributing factors.

And you're using only PART of the data set of the most infectious bug EVAR...
 
The reported cases.
 
All the people who didn't catch it - or maybe couldn't catch it - don't matter. All the people who shrugged off a mild snifflie? That doesn't matter.
 
Here in St. Louis, we still have over 99.8% of our population wandering around doing weird things... Same for most of the rest of the country.

Well, "Omicron" is phonetically close to "Omega".  :laugh:

Pfizer says 100 days to a new vaccine.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden has banned travel to the US from select countries. Which makes this dig of his against Trump a little awkward:

Quote
Joe Biden
@JoeBiden

United States government official
A wall will not stop the coronavirus.

Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it.

This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it.
