IOM Covid removing restrictions


Filippo

Recommended Posts

This pandemic, if nothing else, has opened my eyes to the fact that many people whom I've always considered to be sensible and rational, are out and out nutters / conspiraloons.    Spouting theories (gleaned from Youtube, Fox news etc) that I don't think even a self-respecting sci-fi author would use in the most outlandish of novels.

There’s a lot more of it going about sadly as this all goes on you can’t escape it on Facebook now. Not sure if this is right but was talking to someone who reckoned there was about 20 nuts who turned up at that meeting and that video was simply the loopiest episode in a whole series of bizarre questions pitched.

So Rob Calister and Graham Creegen were there as well, I didn't see them in the video.

You never hear much from them anyway but I'm sure I heard Rob shout, 'Meat pies have come'

They really needed to get someone scientific in (with no invested interest in anything other than sanity and truth) to say "You're all barking mad if you believe this sort of shite,  now go home and due something useful".   That would be a video worth watching.     Unfortunately however, things have got to the stage where if you try and ignore or challenge these people, they will automatically assume you're "in on the lie..... sheeple, baaa etc".    Perhaps laughter is the answer.

There was a recent meeting in Onchan hub attended by around 60 Anti-vaxxers (husband of one of them is in our golf group)

Fascinating how rational people can have their common sense overshadowed by mentalist views. I am assuming mostly via YouTube and Facebook groups but if people are meeting up in person, this must add more credibility to their cause as it’s taking the discussion offline.

Got to keep the grift in motion, more dumbfucks there are the more money the triple surnamed fucktards can get out of them.

As the pandemic starts to fade these people (including politicians and medics) see their 5 minutes in the spotlight receding time to go for the last minute paypal donations.

See the protest about nothing in London last week with the main banner paypal address front and centre.

Sadly some people, (the deluded struck off nurse being one of them) can't see that they are being used like that and will desperately try and show that the earth is flat or that somehow they've become more magnetic due a vaccine.

Anyway rant over, i feel the need to buy some Apple products from Amazon and renew my Microsoft subscription from some strange reason right now.

It’s happening the world over. Heartbreaking tales from USA with patients begging for the vaccine and being told it’s too late. Perhaps the more testimonials from the unvaccinated who are now seriously ill and in hospital will help to turn people’s heads.

 I have a dear friend who is one of the anti group. She tells me with all seriousness about the magnetism and how, due to the amount of women vaccinated, that the menstrual cycle of the unvaccinated is now all over the place. I don’t challenge her. It’s not worth it. We have however, agreed to talk about anything else in the world except covid so we can carry on being friends. She really believes it all tho. Truly.

Today’s offering from Takeover TV on Facebook is funny as fcuk, really taking the piss out of the PAG event, and making Ashford and Allinson out like total clowns. I can only imagine the memes, the GIFS and comedy shorts, if either of these two are Chief Minister. If Rob Callister was in the audience I wonder what he makes of it (unless he is sitting on the fence, to protect his future interests).

Yup, got similar agreements with a couple of anti-vaxxers I know.  Generally they are in the 'hippy camp' but I wouldn't have thought they were complete imbeciles before this. 

But also some medical/scientific friends - these were almost more worrying as they have gone from 'nothing to worry about' at the start of the Covid outbreak, to 'we are literally all going to die' last summer.  Both of which whilst at the extreme ends of the spectrum are completely wrong and have come from the people I would have previously considered the experts (or at least more up to speed on the situation). 

It's going the way of Religion, Politics and Money. 

It doesn't seem to me that anyone is really coming out with regular, viable and correct predictions.  But everyone has an opinion, which is fine, but you don't need to force your opinion on me. 

DONT TALK TO ME ABOUT COVID AND WE CAN STILL BE FRIENDS!

There’s been a suggestion that a few tin hatters in the PAG might have set it up so maybe that’s why that didn’t happen.

I have had trouble copying and pasting - it’s iOS known fault. I used to be able to, but with updates and new operating it’s not letting me.
