“I’m now giving order to the barangay captains to look for those persons who are not vaccinated and just request them — or order them if you may — to stay put. And if [they] refuse and go around the community, [they] can be restrained,” Duterte said in his address to the public Thursday night. “If [they] refuse, then the barangay captain, being a person in authority, is empowered now to arrest the recalcitrant persons.”
Maybe some of the craziness of the pandemic social distancing is that it represents a Next Step in a trend that has been growing since the World Wide Web or maybe since television came along in which humans are becoming more averse to face to face contact?
COVID has exposed just about everything rotten in our society.
– most jobs are make work jobs, managers are mostly useless paper pushers, offices are useless in many cases – many churches are weak and corrupt. here in canada most churches are now enforcing proof of vax and booting you if you don’t have it – urban degenerate lifestyles seem to be out of vogue now, mass white flight out of urban centers into suburban and even remote areas – higher education is a scam. people are paying thousands per semester to watch some recorded zoom lectures. without the “party experience” there’s literally no reason to go for most degrees. – many people are terrified of death and are very immature about it – many people are willing to sacrifice their kids’ mental health and future in order to “feel good” about themselves. most of them have no purpose and love feeling like part of a movement. – there is a large subset of (mainly white & especially J) women who love being tyrants. They WILL NOT leave you the fuck alone if you are unvaccinated, unless you make them . . .
Feel free to add anything I missed. It seems like we’re on a rolling snowball that can’t, or won’t, stop, until we crash. Diversity is now affecting the upper white middle class and they aren’t stopping it. Don’t know who is in charge or what the end goal is. Very interesting times.
It has been noted before that for the people who call themselves conservative and support the Republican Party, their best president was Bill Clinton. His was the most conservative administration since Eisenhower, according to the modern definition of conservative. The worst president was George W. Bush, the guy the Republican Party claimed was the epitome of conservatism. Conservative voters still hate Bill Clinton and mostly ignore Bush.
Veritas decides not to publish alleged diary of Joe Biden’s daughter, hands it to police, gets raided by the FBI anyway, their devices are seized and shortly after their privileged communications with lawyers are leaked to the NYT (which Veritas was in the middle of suing).
[Committee] members include a former vice president of Pfizer Vaccines, a recent Pfizer consultant, a recent Pfizer research grant recipient, a man who mentored a current top Pfizer vaccine executive, a man who runs a center that gives out Pfizer vaccines, the chair of a Pfizer data group, a guy who was proudly photographed taking a Pfizer vaccine, and numerous people who are already on the record supporting Coronavirus vaccines for children. Meanwhile, recent FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is on Pfizer’s board of directors.
Have an experimental drug that needs rapid authorization from the FDA in order to be sold to the masses? Looking to siphon billions of dollars from the U.S. taxpayer for your newfound pharmaceutical product? In today’s America, you can buy yourself a former FDA commissioner, and use the public-sector private-sector revolving door system of corruption to impose your will on the American public, and make a windfall for your executives and shareholders in the process.
Much the same as financial regulators.
Jew Among You notices that some overcorrect against the hype:
“The erosion [of my confidence] is based on the disastrously bad decision to approve aducanumab (Aduhelm), which seems like a poorly developed and even possibly corrupt decision,” he told surveyors. “I cannot remember a similar situation in which there was so much dismay and disbelief created by an FDA decision. We do not plan to use aducanumab at this time and we no longer know what to think about and how much to trust any future FDA decisions.”
This is not a new issue. Here’s an excellent 2013 article from a Harvard ethics body warning of the way things were going. Their conclusion:
Advice to readers: Experienced, independent physicians recommend not to take a new drug approved by the FDA until it is out for 7 years, unless you have to, so that evidence can accumulate about its real harms and benefits.10
