So let me see if I have this straight.

reference from NPR (https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2021/01/28/960901166/how-is-the-covid-19-vaccination-campaign-going-in-your-state)

So ... that's 159 million people dead found dead in their homes after receiving the COVID vaccine since 2020? Over half the US population? :dizzy:
The best part is that you can do the math like this and show them these absolutely preposterous numbers to try and show them how silly it is, and they'll just nod their head and say yes, it's absolutely true that 159 million Americans have died from the COVID vaccine and the media is hiding it.

Inquiring minds want to know, wtf have they done with all the dead people? And their houses? And their orphaned children and pets?

Where are they getting all the paramedics to go into all these houses and find all these dead people? :freakout:


:facepalm: It's bad enough just thinking about all the people we actually did lose to COVID because they wouldn't wear a mask or get the vaccine.

The stupidity is mind blowing. :eek:

GB News seem to be taking a similar line to Fox News in similar circumstances -- their audience don't actually expect facts from them:

On Tuesday the media regulator, Ofcom, said it was particularly concerned by Wolf’s “significant and alarming claim” that mass murder was taking place through vaccinations, which she repeated three times without significant inclusion of challenge or context.

In its defence, the channel argued that its audience had different expectations because “GB News has a different approach from many other factual channels”. The channel said it promoted “controversial and contrarian [views] as a way of provoking thoughtful questioning and debate and re-evaluation of important issues”.

The Food and Drug Administration has withdrawn authorization for Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine, ending its short-lived but troubled existence amid the pandemic.

In a letter last week, the FDA's top vaccine regulator, Peter Marks, wrote to Janssen Biotech—the Johnson & Johnson-owned, Belgium-based company responsible for the vaccine—saying that the agency was revoking authorization. Marks opened the letter by noting that the withdrawal was at the request of the company.
Looks like the remaining government stock had expired back on May 7.

There are a horrifying number of people online who 100% believe that the vaccines are comparable to the holocaust... They've spent far too much time in their echo chambers.

I got the J&J vaccine first and don't regret it. I think the blood clotting is likely just a statistical anomoly, but I know this will make millions of anti vaxxers feel vindicated. They are good at making a mountain out of a mole hill.

When I encountered the “It’s too experimental “ crowd about mRNA I’d say “Get the J&J, it’s made the same way all the jabs you had as a kid were made. Then the goalposts would move based on the first part of your post.

There is ONE good reason you should shut off your phone this afternoon, and that's if you have a secret phone for Reasons (like domestic violence), because the emergency test could set it off even if it's normally set to be silent.

We had an emergency phone test here back in April, which demonstrated that my carrier (three.co.uk) can't handle emergency alerts.

LOL, but I guess that's the point of the alert, to find problems like that so they can be fixed before the system is REALLY needed.

At the end of the article they quote a press release from Three issued a couple of days later saying they've located and fixed the issue. I remember reading about it at the time -- I can't remember the details but it sounded like something that could easily be remedied with better error handling, now they were aware of the problems.

Even here in relatively sane NJ there are severe nuts. I had to go to the ER. Some father walked in with his son that looked around 14. The son had broken his leg in some sports accident from what I overheard. Masks are required at hospitals here. The man refused to put one on. He kept going on about how masks do nothing and he had enough of this. The security man was incredibly kind and patient with him explaining why it was necessary. Finally after 5 or 10 minutes the security guy left (maybe to get the police?) and the man and son decided to put masks on.

Sheesh. Four years later, and there're still people railing on against masks. You really can't fix stupid.
