DeathSantis

I thought of that nickname last night in the shower. We need to make sure every is calling him that, kind of like the santorum campaign.

Vaccine Refusers Don’t Get to Dictate Terms Anymore

Near as I can tell, vaccine refusers are still dictating terms.

Recent poll has shown Biden will lose against Trump in 2024.

That's how you dictate terms.

Nearby county commission has petitioned the Governor to make Ivermectin and hydroxycloroquine available to the public.

Anti-vaxxers have proven that they are willing to die for what they believe is right. That they would rather die than take the vaccine.

Like the Taliban.

Still dictaing terms.

They see things through an odd eye filter called a dictitating lamebrane.

ZOOLOGY
noun: dictitating lamebrane;
a whitish or translucent membrane that forms an inner eyelid in weirdos, dipshits, and some morans. It can be drawn across the eye to protect it from trust and keep it dumb.

There are 6 or 7 large random drug trials that include ivermectin under way right now. I predict that one or more will find the way they used ivermectin was useful, though not a "wonder drug". The in-vitro and India results seem to indicate that. The fact that it's inferior to vaccination will convert a lot of people. Like: "Why not use both?" There is no contraindication for that, except for pregnancy or MS. (Ivermectin causes fetal brain damage, while vaccination is very beneficial for pregnant women and even protects the baby after birth.)

Dismissing it as "cow dewormer" is not correct. It has been prescribed for humans over a billion times, and is on WHO's list of essential drugs. Until we have those trial results, I think the FDA should let doctors prescribe it, so people can take safe doses with full professional guidance. It's pretty harmless unless people overdose fooling with horse paste, or there is a contraindication as I stated above.

"CDC announces dramatic drop in annual head lice infestations in Southern United States..." About 6–12 million people, mainly children, are treated annually for head lice in the United States alone. In the UK, it is estimated that two thirds of children will experience at least one case of head lice before leaving primary school. High levels of louse infestations have also been reported from all over the world, including Australia, Denmark, France, Ireland, Israel, and Sweden. "For some reason, however, there is a low incidence of head lice amongst children of anti-vaccination activists. This is an area that we intend to study." In other respects, the southern United States remains as lousy as ever.

This is a funny story:

[url=https://www.huffpost.com/entry/covid-vaccine-mental-health-benefits_l_6138c73be4b0aac9c01ea4c2]Another Health Benefit Of Vaccine/url]

They claim they found mental health improvements after people got vaccinated, therefore getting vaccinated improves your mental health. This is the most common fallacy in the press: The post hoc fallacy. X followed Y, therefore Y caused X. But these seem to be legitimate researchers funded by the Gates Foundation!

They never considered the possibility that improved mental health led people to get vaccinated! That seems pretty obvious to me, and in fact Occam's Razor says it's probably the right answer. Aside from legitimate medical issues (extremely rare) you have to be crazy not to get vaccinated! My wife's twin won't get vaccinated because God told her not to get it after she prayed on it. She's counting on Larry Elder to win so he can cancel all vaccination mandates, and she can keep her dental hygienist job. I just hope she let's family members know when she does get sick so we can get her some monoclonal antibodies.

I found it. Actually, they’re not talking about intelligence or mental stability over time.They’re talking about relief from stress and worry after vaccination.

I agree with that wholeheartedly; I felt much less worried after my first vaccination, even more after the second. That’s why delta was such a disappointment; it took away much of that sense of relief. For a month or so I didn’t wear a mask; now I wear one.

There’s a link to a summary of the study. If I can find it again I’ll come back and post it.

And here it is:
