People Are Important

I was disappointed this morning when I read this and had planned a parody blog where I suggested it’d be vital to the national interests to turn away the fats from hospitals, if resources were scarce. But then I changed my mind about it because I love some fat people and half my family could be considered the fats and I’d not like to see them die a dogs death.

What have some of us become?

I turned away from religion a long time ago, in spite of being raised catholic and served as an altar boy until I was 13. I did so because, well, I stopped believing in the divine. But if there was a time for some people to seek God and the virtues celebrated by religion — it is now.

People are hesitant to take the vaccine for good reason, for one it has proven to kill people, not that often, but often enough that you notice it even with the censored media. It’s like winning the lottery, but with better odds, and when you win — you die. The other important fact about the vaccine  — it does not stop a COVID infection, nor does it stop one from dying or being hospitalized. It might mitigate severe illness and death — but it does not stop it. So don’t be shocked and surprised when good meaning people, your neighbors and your friends, choose not to enroll in the vaccine lottery due to attendant risks. You are guaranteed a shot at death with the vaccine, but if you’re a careful person and keep your mask nice and tight — you may never get COVID. To date, about 1 in 10 Americans have gotten COVID.

See the logic? I hope you do.

We all have hopes and dreams, some of them simple and honest and others with greater aspirations ebb on the grandiose — and we do not exist on this planet for very long. We are all sons and daughters, have people who love us and share ideals and passions with — enjoy to laugh and loathe to cry. We have our favorite foods and books and never turn away a good cocktail, especially during a show, an enchanting melody, or perhaps a sporting event. We love to live — because living is wonderful and meeting other people is what makes it more special.

To be lucky enough to be alive in America in the 21st century is a gift. Our gift is not the government who maliciously governs us but the land and the people who inhabit it. I am and always will be bullish on people. But sometimes, as is the case now, they get hamstrung by psyops and demonize one another for reasons that are wholly emotional. Be charitable and empathetic — and let’s get thru this terrible time with dignity and honor, lest we’re no better than all of those people we so frequently like to point fingers at.

    Very, very thoughtful Commander Fly. What a great heart you have. But I believe in the vaccine; especially for those at high risk. I’ll be getting a regular flu vaccine plus a COVID booster, if and when it is recommended.

    I do understand the fear. I believe a vaccine killed my beloved cat Midnite. I didn’t want him to be vaccinated but the Vet did it while he mesmerizing us about the time he met Bob Dylan on an island jumper plane. Midnite was an indoor, very cool cat and he hadn’t had any vaccines for years; he was 15. Bright-eyed and fur like a black mink; 10 days after he was vaccinated I noticed everything went dull and he passed away.

      Context is a well developed, research lab strain.
      Lot of you talk as though it was a popup organic crazy virus just happened.
      intentional release
      lab made
      So the vax is a step in huge nefarious predesign
      which happens to have affinity for Ace2 which is a few things including reproductive
      Efficacy at the start was fudged
      fairly obvious that would be the case
      FDA approval was bs’d
      they used a proxy, with name change, to just assign, approval (cominarty)
      And you’re getting the S protein formed in a lab in, china, because it was lab origin, put in you

      It’s called VACCINE FAILURE. It’s called ADE or leaky vaccines. It’s taking gasoline and throwing it on a fire.

      When a vaccine fails, the virus mutates and becomes worse. Ergo, we have record deaths in the summer. The winter is going to be dreadful.

    The number of people that have died from Covid to date in the US is 648k out of 39.9mm cases. That’s a death rate of roughly 1.6%.

    Contrast that with 374mm vaccine doses being delivered. To date 7,218 deaths have been reported from people that had recently received the vaccine which puts the odds at .0020%. Even if you went all conspiracy and doubled that number to .004 and then took the number of Covid cases and doubled that with the current number of deaths you’re still twice as likely to die from Covid. So you’re simply playing an odds game, and while the odds are low either way they are stacked against you foregoing the vaccine. Sorry fly, but your logic doesn’t check out.

    That said I fully support the right to choose or not choose to be vaccinated. It is up to everyone to decide for themselves, and I don’t judge another person for not doing it.

      It’s 2000s.
      Not early 1900s.
      We have compounds.
      Normal modern messaging,
      would have been, openly, inclusive,
      for a 1 in 100 year virus. C and D3 are fundamental basic.
      Silver zinc hcq etc actively suppressed censored or, purged

      So
      “still twice as likely to die from covid” has complete deceitful base.
      Vax has plain view longterm global agenda if aware of Australia
      Canada New Zealand UK. Not a vax. It’s basically just the
      spike protein. Going into you

    Hell, even if you take the CDC estimate and triple the number of COVID infections the odds are still worse. If you don’t want to take it for whatever personal reason that is perfectly fine and your choice, but you are far smarter than this to make the argument you’re making.

      Correct. We don’t know how many infections there have been and we do not know how many died of Covid …as opposed to just with Covid. We will have a better GUESS when the number of excess deaths in the US during 2020 is fully reported. Also, adverse reactions to the vaccines are being hushed-up and not reported. I know many that have had severe and lingering reactions to the vaccines – VAERS is a joke.

      Perhaps most important, there are treatments for Covid that have lower risks than the vaccine and they are being hushed up too. For fuck’s sake …they saved Chris Christie over a year ago with one of these treatments!

    I agree that we don’t know the true numbers. They could be off in either direction- low or high, which is why I gave the cdc credit for the estimate on cases and penalized them for the deaths by vaccine number. Even then the odds are much better for the vaccine.

    I agree with you on the antibody treatment. But that opens up a whole new discussion about hospitalization rates and deaths by other causes that can’t be treated because unvaccinated people overwhelm a health care system. If the can be administered prophylactically then they would mitigate that problem but they don’t work that way. They are a treatment. And let’s face it guys like Christie are getting top notch treatment regardless of whether or not a hospital is overwhelmed. The rest of us will wait in line for our turn.

    And I’m not doubting your experience one bit, but mine has been completely different. I know many people who have received the vaccine with no ill effects, while I also personally know a couple who have passed away from Covid, and I also know someone who is dealing with long-haul Covid symptoms, a very well documented issue.

    First of all, very well written Fly. A beautiful piece.

    That said, I find it puzzling how anyone can trust the pitch on these “vaccines” when the lies have been proven.

    When the vaccines were first introduced, they were 95% effective. Now they admitted that they are 0% effective. The only thing they can continue to lie about now are the lessened symptoms. People still believe the lie.

    I have a friend with Covid check into the hospital. He had pretty bad flu like symptoms and spent about a week. He is not vaccinated. While there, a nurse told him that half the Covid patients had been vaccinated. Well if the symptoms aren’t bad after you get the vaccine, why would you be in the hospital? Roughly the same % in my company…about half of those who got Covid were vaccinated.

    So coming back to the fact that they lied about the 95% effectiveness, they had no data to support that, why would anyone believe them now? One more thing, anyone who dies within 14 days after receiving the vaccine is counted as an unvaccinated death. These people are so f**king disingenuous yet many here are willing to ignore this and inject themselves with poison.

    I guess what they say is true. It’s easier to fool someone than to convince them that they’ve been fooled.

      Were never vaccines.
      Linguistic psyop.

      Did you f ing notice they weaponized the words “domestic terrorist” after january
      essentially weaponized the word “baseless” in november
      “vaccine hesitancy” for any non taker whatsoever
      the pcr test predominantly relabelled influenza via high cycle
      Notice a lot of linguistic relabelling?

      the fda approval? A proxy product “name change” was approved? Relabelling?
      95%? Linguistic packaged P.R. at the very least
      You actually bought this.
      “if the symptoms aren’t bad after you get the vaccine, why would you be in the hospital”
      Wouldn’t be mulling that if you understood there was base psyop.
      “95% effectiveness, they had no data to support that”
      stfu? no fucking shit? truthtellers said immediately it was merely shoo in rubber stamp
      “about half of those who got Covid were vaccinated”
      Yeah the vax is covid
      The vax is the spike
      Unvaxd as hospitalized was injected narrative placed in news
      Like ridiculously obvious as hell. Somehow you don’t realize that was injected.
      Of course it would be vaxd getting ailments. Of course it was a narrative re-fucking-label

    Smart people are already voting with their feet from CA & NY to FL & TX, etc.
    From Sovereign Man:

    74 large businesses moved their headquarters out of CA in 1st half of 2021, double the rate of the past three years.

    More businesses left CA in 1st 6 months of 2021, than in all of 2020.

    Texas is #1 destination. Since 2018 it has become the new headquarters of at least 114 businesses which were previously based in California.

    The Hoover Institute says it is an under-count. Making the move public is not required

    It’s only counting headquarters moves – not jobs. Eg. Disney is not officially relocating, but it is moving 2,000 headquarters jobs to Orlando,

          Sad story. State media is scouring the country for such stories. Such stories fit a narrative that is, for some reason, being promoted.

          If they wanted to, they could instead tell stories of ICUs that are under-staffed due to staff leaving because they refused the shots. Or they could talk about patients who only ended up in the ICU because they were unaware of how successful early treatment (e.g. with monoclonal antibodies) has proven to be. But no, it’s vax or die.

          Don’t know why.

            The metrics I am using are county metrics from local healthcare systems. The days matches what is being reported federally, but since it is potentially deep state media I look at the local level. If the argument is then that everyone is compromised that conflicts with my personal experience having a spouse who is a frontline provider.

    “It might mitigate severe illness and death […]”

    This benefit is key, keeping vaccinated and hospitalized COVID patients out of the ICU so that service remains available to other patients that need the intensive care to survive.

    Meanwhile even at peak effectiveness, the available vaccines are insufficient to prevent uncontrolled spread of COVID-19 given the current virulence and level of vaccine acceptance. Exacerbating this situation, breakthrough infections increase in the months following the last dose as protective effects diminish.

    If nothing changes, the odds of being exposed to COVID will eventually exceed the odds of being vaccinated.

    Everything fearful a vetted vaccine can do, COVID can do brutally.

    Prepare.

      might mitigate severe illness and death is the best they can do
      as, after all this time it is still unproven.

      But there are few facts we know:
      1) the “vaccines” do not prevent you from getting the virus
      2) the “vaccines” do not prevent you from spreading the virus
      3) the “vaccines” do not prevent you from dying from the virus
      4) thousands have died or been disabled after getting the “vaccines”
      5) the long term effects of getting the “vaccines” are not known
      6) the “vaccines” are not vaccines, but gene therapy

            According to that image 1,798 vaccinated people have died between feb 1 and aug 29 of this year. Meanwhile total deaths for the UK in that time period are 25,873. Meaning of total deaths roughly 93% of those were unvaccinated people. That is basically exactly in line with the data everywhere regarding deaths and icu occupancy for unvaccinated vs vaccinated.

    In every single case, infections and deaths are up SHARPLY in nations who mass vaccinate. In nations where COVID never existed, they are now seeing an exponential increase in COVID — such as Israel, Japan, Singapore, Mongolia for fucks sake.

    None of them had issues in 2020 but yet now face an overwhelming breakout in spite of the fact that when they began to vaccinate — there was no threat. For example, Australia.

    For example: Marin County California.

    For example: Iceland

    For example, Gibraltar, Seychelles.

    It goes on and on and on.

    COVID is worsening as we vaccinate more. What else do you need to understand? The amount of people who are unvaccinated are less and less and yet the numbers grow more and more to record highs. It is NOT the unvaccinated you stupid fucks.
