  1. I went to a local hospital web site affiliated with my doctor, and they had no advice about when to get the flu shot after receiving the Covid shot. Americans have lost a year or more of longevity because of Covid, on average . . . and of course the vast majority of the increase in deaths is due to Covid-19 and underlying conditions. Evidence is mounting that being fully vaccinated against the flu and Covid is beneficial and you won't lose years off your lifespan. Optimistically, every year medical science is "researching" longevity, we gain time . . . but pandemics can lessen that precious time. M: This is for you Bond. For your eyes only . . . You only live twice.
  2. I agree Jules. This vaccine may be beneficial but side affects could be lessened. To everyone, if you want to know about Covid and the flu from the doctor’s mouth ask your personal physician or his nurse or the personnel at a medical clinic. Oh. You already know what they will say? Maybe the following is what you would hear. Peter From The Mayo Clinic: Vaccines to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are perhaps the best hope for ending the pandemic. A COVID-19 vaccine might: Prevent you from getting COVID-19 or from becoming seriously ill or dying due to COVID-19 Prevent you from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to others Add to the number of people in the community who are protected from getting COVID-19 — making it harder for the disease to spread and contributing to herd immunity Prevent the virus that causes COVID-19 from spreading and replicating, which allows it to mutate and possibly become more resistant to vaccines From The CDC: Why should people get vaccinated against flu? Influenza (flu) is a potentially serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza can affect people differently, but millions of people get flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and thousands to tens of thousands of people die from flu-related causes every year. Flu can mean a few days of feeling bad and missing work or it can result in more serious illness.
  3. Well said. I think you and others will change your conclusions based on the evidence. The "sky isn't falling" but time is passing by.
  4. The answer is both. Consider something guys and dolls. Why do you think few fans of Rand on OL advocate or even "say," they have gotten the vaccine? One reason may be the intimidation factor. Perhaps, if they do the rational thing medically they will not be appreciated by those communicating on OL . . . so they say nothing.
  5. And Anthony wrote: ”Why children must be involved, and their parents comply, not for their own health safety but for the communal safety . . This vaccine should not become mandated. But what is interesting to me, is that the Covid 19 vaccine has been politicized. It should not be. And it has been politicized by the portion of the population that is most rational about life, liberty, prosperity, and happiness. To me it is good to be wary but follow the medical science. Once again, I caution all friends of Rand to respect the science and be safe. Peter Notes. State-by-State: Vaccinations Required for Public School Kindergarten. DTaP: Diphtheria, Tetanus, & Pertussis All 50 states and DC require the DTap vaccine (or another vaccine combination for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis) for kindergarten entry. IPV: Polio All 50 states and DC require the IPV vaccine for kindergarten entry. Varicella: Chickenpox All 50 states and DC require the varicella vaccine for kindergarten entry, though some will accept proof of immunity instead of vaccination. Some states list the MMRV (measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella) vaccine as appropriate. MMR: Measles, Mumps, & Rubella 49 states and DC require the MMR vaccine for kindergarten entry. Some states list the MMRV (measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella) vaccine as appropriate. Iowa, the only state to not require the MMR vaccine, requires a measles and a rubella vaccine, but not a mumps vaccine. HepB: Hepatitis B 44 states and DC require the Hep B vaccine for kindergarten entry. Alabama, Maine, Montana, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Vermont do not require the HepB vaccine for kindergarten entry. HepA: Hepatitis A 17 states require the Hep A vaccine for kindergarten entry: Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. Hib: Haemophilus Influenza Type b Some states require this vaccine if the child is entering kindergarten before turning 5 years old. We have included only vaccine requirements for all kindergartners. Please consult your state requirements if the child will be 4 years old when entering kindergarten. PCV: Pneumococcal Some states require this vaccine if the child is entering kindergarten before turning 5 years old. We have included only vaccine requirements for all kindergartners. Please consult your state requirements if the child will be 4 years old when entering kindergarten.
  6. From The Washington Post: Huge hack reveals embarrassing details of who's behind Proud Boys and other far-right websites. Oh my gosh! It was mostly the entire cast of “Call The Midwife.” joke
  7. Here's how you do it. Go to, your "go to" internet server. Type in did Trump get the vaccine? Voila! It's like an encyclopedia at your fingertips!
  8. Let’s just postulate. If you have airbags during a crash in your car your chances of death are lowered by how much . . . If your plane has a co-pilot your chances of death are lowered by . . . If you have been vaccinated against . . . your chances of death are lowered . . . and on and on. In ITOE, Chapter Six, Ayn Rand named only three axiomatic concepts, Existence, Identity, and Consciousness. She discussed their nature, role, and importance in establishing the foundations of an objective epistemology in general and in her Objectivist Philosophy specifically. They are "irreducible primaries . . . . perceived or experienced directly, but grasped conceptually. They are implicit in every state of awareness, from the first sensation to the first percept to the sum of all concepts." end quote What don’t you get? I think people who do not make the right medical judgements are missing the “sum of all concepts:” intelligent life. And once again, DJT is fully vaccinated. Be like your hero and get vaccinated.
  9. Jul 31, 2021 · At least 125,000 fully vaccinated Americans have tested positive for Covid and 1,400 of those have died, according to data compiled by NBC News. Covid cases in America: 42,779,548. Deaths 686,730. 1,400 vs. 686,730. You can’t really count those numbers on your fingers but does anyone see a significant difference? Gosh. Thanks internet calculator. The coronavirus death rate is 490 times greater for the un-vaccinated. What would Ayn Rand do . . . with evidence like that? As Jake from the show “Two and a Half Men” would say, “You knowwww.” I may have mentioned this but the VA is not pushing a Pfizer booster . . . yet . . . but they are suggesting a seasonal flu shot between Oct. and Nov.

  10. How did it go? The news looks ho hum.
  11. Caroljane. I start this thread at the suggestion of a compatriot whom I interrupted in the midst of a Mideast discussion, because I had become alarmed at signs that Canada will be going to the polls again, as soon as the polls are favourable for the Government. end quote Stalemate? You guys need a Trump. Trudeau’s Liberals were leading or elected in 157 seats — exactly the same number they won in 2019, 13 short of the 170 needed for a majority in the House of Commons. The Conservatives were leading or elected in 121 seats, the same number they won in 2019. The leftist New Democrats were leading or elected in 29, a gain of five seats, while the Quebec-based Bloc Québécois was down three at 28 and the Greens remained at two seats.
  12. Ever notice that when things don’t go their way, some people insist they have evidence of the opposite being true? That is what Eric Hoffer called “The True Believer.” “. . . Whether intended to be cultural, ideological, religious, or whatever else, Hoffer argues that mass movements are broadly interchangeable even when their stated goals or values differ dramatically. This makes sense, in the author's view, given the frequent similarities between them in terms of the psychological influences on its adherents . . . .”
  13. Nice boobs. And face. and every thigh else, er. . . I mean everything else. And what a sharp brain! From The Sun: Chris Rock urges fans to get vaccinated as he reveals COVID-19 diagnosis: 'Trust me you don't want this.' Chris Rock has revealed that he's tested positive for COVID-19 — and is using his diagnosis to encourage others to get vaccinated. In a tweet posted on Sunday, the 56-year-old comedian told fans that he "just found out I have COVID." The former Saturday Night Live star added, "Trust me you don't want this. Get vaccinated.". . . . Though the star didn't clarify if he has the Delta variant, he is fully vaccinated. In May, Rock joked during multiple talk show appearances about cutting the line to fast-track his shot.
  14. As Elvis said, "Thank you. Thank you very much." I have That SOB on hold but I sometimes go into "activity" without signing in . . . I will try to ignore IT. Sometimes I think IT must be a child.
  15. "If you approve of beefed-up security at the Capital for a setup by the FBI, but ignore the invasion at the Texas border, you might just be a clueless rube/useful idiot". -With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy. Ignore the Texas border? Is that an attempt at "slight of hand." I have no idea what you are talking about. Where’s your proof about the FBI instigating the riot? If there were government employees there, it was undercover. That’s a real job. None of them tried to kill or put the eye out of any policemen or security person, though I think a couple of soldiers were participating in the riot. I have no doubt they had a “talk” with their superiors back on base.
