no worries we know you and people like you don't care. That's why it's allowed to happen. That's why the Holocaust that y'all know all too well was allowed to happen. That's why there's another one that's about to be allowed to happen.

But jokes are funny especially unfunny ones.

you're not black, you are of mixed race, from African and or Caribbean descent.

I live in a country where I am classified as black, a classification designated for targeting.

It's not the same, and you have have no experience lineage-wise to a holocaust, unless you're ancestry-owned or sold slaves..

Maybe you would have ties to slavery if you are Caribbean ancestry, but you have a nation devoted to whatever Caribbean lineage you come from, i e if you are jamaican, or another Island sovereignty. I don't have the privilege of claiming another land. My ancestors built this one, that's why it's fucking stupid to say can't you just leave when my ancestors built pretty much this whole world but specifically America.

I learned this later as I continued posting. It started as Henmi being the most steeziest, as I got older I love the smug smirk with the gold teeth especially when I can shit on people's arguments like I am in this thread.

Is that even a surprise when 80% of the population eligible for the vaccine are now double vaccinated?

Compare the covid deaths to this time last year and they are much lower (as are covid hospital admissions).

News filtering through today from South Africa is that omicron is more transmissable and less symptomatic. If that is true we can go the route of herd immunity and give boosters to the older population and the immunocompromised only. Fingers crossed it mutates weaker and weaker and becomes a yearly jab for those that need it only.

Exactly this.

Fear mongering and political grabs causing people to be irrational.

I’m not debating whether they work - I’m just saying the stats are interesting seeing as the unvaccinated et al are being demonized and people are saying on Tv 90% of people in Critical Care are Unvaxxed

Hoping so but then you'll get the ones asking for it and rallying for everyone to keep boostered up i'm sure.

eh? Puzzled It's not fear mongering if the new mutation is causing people to be less sick. Should it spread faster we can reach herd immunity quicker as it's already outcompeting delta variant.

It's good news if anything.

See what I'm here to do is bypass all the stupid shit to keep people squabbling. My question is do you agree with forced medical procedures, or nah?

Smith I’m agreeing with your statement - you always want to argue lol.

I’m saying that the fear mongering from news outlets and politicians etc is not helping logic

I agree with you. It's wrong if the media are still doing that. I don't really watch the mainstream news but get my info from sources online and gathered data.
