So far, what we've learned from the pandemic is distrust.

They want a global revolt against governments so they can squash us like a bug and bring in their one world gov courtesy of the money printers.

Even the WSJ is just blatantly using that stupid 45% statistic without any explanation???? Really would have thought you’re professionals. If you take a full look at that, you see that in terms of the complete numbers theres a 7 times as high chance to get hospitalized without the vaccine

I'm fully vaccinated. I'm not going back into quarantine. I refuse to live my life in fear.

We have to be upguarded around the clock and all year long.

Increase medical capacity and staff. Abandon vaxx mandates. Allow the virus to run. Provide education to stay healthy. This is the only option vaxx will take years to develop and may still be opposed by general public. By forcing mandates you create dissent and distrust mandates don't work except for those depending on government pay.

The restrictions will continue for as long as the people allow them to. When your "democratic" government bans indoor gatherings this winter without a vote of the people — as happened widely last year — call them out this time and don't give an inch.

You guys dont need booster shot you need to share vaccines with poor nations because in poor nations the virus will mutate. Vaccinate poor countries.

The first virus was ignorance, then compliance, now plain stupidity.
