A stab in the dark
I’m a little mystified.
Ireland is priding itself on being one of the leaders in vaccination, if indeed that is something to gloat about. The latest figures say that 90.3% of the population is fully vaccinated. I heard somewhere at the start of this shindig that herd immunity should kick in around 85%. So we’re grand. Right?
So why are they moaning about the health service being under enormous pressure? Why are they saying that our ICUs are almost full? Why are they screaming that we are heading into a crisis?
Maybe it’s the 9.7% that are clogging up the place? No. They say that somewhere around 60% of ICU victims are unvaccinated, which leads one to suppose [with a little rudimentary calculation and logic] to assume that 40% are vaccinated? But I thought that the vaccine was the ultimate solution? The frantic panic to get us all jabbed would seem to imply that?
But then suddenly they decide that the vaccine isn’t the Holy Grail. We need boosters and then we are safe? To my shame [tinged with a twinge of idle curiosity] I have had the shots and the booster. So I’m safe, right? No. I still have to keep my distance, not mingle, wear a nappy and all that shit. I’m still a mortal danger to myself and the public at large, despite having put myself at risk of nasty side effects [including death]?.
They told us that the vaccines were the answer. We have bought millions of vaccines at a scary price because they are the solution. But then we are told that we are “‘Naive’ to think vaccines would be enough against Covid“? Essentially the Experts are calling us stupid for believing the Experts? We could have saved all those billions spent in an essentially flawed experiment?
If vaccines “aren’t enough” then what is? There is only one way to get past a virus – catch it and gain immunity. Maybe you’ll die in the process but that’s a small price to pay. If they can’t give you artificial immunity via a needle then the only other way is to actually get infected with the real thing and hope you survive. Alternatively, placing each and every one of us in a hermetically sealed box could work? That way we would all suffocate but at least we wouldn’t have clogged up their precious ICUs?
I hope the Austrians, Belgians and Germans are watching us. Their Lords and Masters seem so convinced in the power of the vaccine that they are willing to make it mandatory and cause rioting in the streets, while our Lords and Masters are basically telling them they’re naive to think such a thing.
I can only sit back and scratch my head in wonder.
Maybe it’s not about health? Or vaccines? Just wondering …
What else could it be? Power? Control? Surely not!! :-O
As so many countries are now placing restrictions on the non-vaccinated, banning them from restaurants, bars, other public venues, there’s a spooky parallel with how smokers were excluded a decade or so ago. Because they got away with that blatant constraint on civil liberties without a murmur, should we be surprised when they play the same card again?
To paraphrase Martin Niemoller, first they came for the smokers but I didn’t speak out because I didn’t smoke, then they came for the unvaccinated but I didn’t speak out because I’d had the jabs . . . . . . how far will we let them go with that approach?
Apparently we will let them go way to far.
This BS is never going to end. In Australia they are using the army to take the unvaccinated to special camps.
I hope those camps don’t have “shower rooms”?
It’s currently only in Northern Territories, although Brother in law tells us he can’t get out of Queensland to do his job at the moment. Apparently the local government are tracking down people who ‘might’ have been exposed and putting them into a ‘transit’ facility with other ‘undesirables’. Even if they’re already self-isolating.
Personally I think the Amish in the USA have it right.
Only 76% of Ireland is fully vaccinated if you include children, Eastern Europeans and those who’ve only had one shot so far. Apparently that’s who is taking up all our hospital beds.. People from Eastern Europe, because of their distrust of their own government. There’s so much hate and vitriol. Until recently, there was a crackdown on cyberbullying, racist hatespeech and name calling but now it’s actively encouraged. The same people who are calling vax hesitant ‘retards who deserve to be denied healthcare and die’ are out spreading this disease around thinking they’re invincible because they’re being encouraged to embrace normality as their reward for being a responsible citizen. None of it makes ANY SENSE!!
The latest figures I have are 92.1% of all over 12 have one shot, 90.5% fully vaccinated and 13.9% have the booster. They are the official numbers which probably means they’re incorrect. A quarter of ICU admissions were foreign nationals.
So there you have it – all the problems are down to those evil monsters who are unvaccinated and in particular all dem forreners,
“They say that somewhere around 60% of ICU victims are unvaccinated…”
Maybe true, maybe not. Difficult to tell in these days where narrative often trumps truth and actual data doesn’t count for much. We’ve had similar claims in the UK that turned out to be false – see today’s dailysceptic.org for one example.
Another report says that 62% of infections are in the vaccinated. I have said it all along – they play around too much with numbers and statistics, with the greatest danger being their “mathematical models”.
