Isn’t it nice to have the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States so that yet another opportunity presents itself of allowing morons, dopes and dumbshits tell us all how to enjoy the day?
Start clutching your pearls and have extra toilet paper on hand in case you soil yourself with the fear porn being peddled by these shysters.
Welcoming family into your home for Thanksgiving? Here’s how to keep COVID out – via npr.org
You can read the full article here, but let’s jump ahead, with our holiday expectations on the edge, for the sage and savory advice NPR offered up:
As a risk-reduction measure, you might want to ask your guests to take a COVID test before a large holiday get together. A year ago, it was hard to get real-time information from COVID testing due to delays in test results and a lack of rapid test options. Now, there are plenty of over-the-counter rapid antigen tests, such as the Abbott BinaxNOW or Orasure InteliSwab, available online and in pharmacies.
Yes, nothing screams holiday love and happy tidings more than asking a friend, loved one or family member to bring rolls, wine, pumpkin pie…and don’t fucking forget to bring your over-the-counter rapid antigen test. Dissenters will be allowed to dine out in the back yard, in Fido’s crib.
The tests are not (emphasis added) 100% reliable if someone has just been exposed, explains Emily Landon, an infectious disease physician at the University of Chicago. “The test really doesn’t pick up really low levels of the virus in your nose, and so it’s not going to pick up a really early infection,” she says. So she recommends taking the test the morning of the gathering, or as close to the start of the gathering as possible.
The tests are not 100% reliable – just like the PCR tests, that even the inventor of the test, Professor Kary B. Mullis, said was never designed to diagnose diseases.
But screw that…just bring the frickin’ pumpkin pie and an unreliable Covid test and you’ll be ‘jake’ and allowed to partake of the festivities of the jabbed.
But what of the stubborn and dumb ‘anti-vaxxers’ who haven’t experienced the dawn of thought of the cornholio cult, and have refused the one, two, and the glorious booster shot of chemical goo? (Don’t worry…fourth, fifth and more pokes of their battery acid are in the pipeline)
Glad you asked. NPR has the solution:
Deciding who to invite to your home is a matter of personal discretion, but experts say at this point in the pandemic, it’s pretty clear that a fully vaccinated group is the safest scenario.
“I think it’s reasonable for people to require their guests to be immunized,” says Guzman-Cottrill, especially if guests include kids too young to be vaccinated (or who have only received their first shot) or people less likely to have a strong immune response to the vaccine, like the immunocompromised. “Those are the people who we still really need to make sure we keep as safe as possible because this pandemic is not over,” she adds.
A vaccine requirement could lead to some hurt feelings or conflict, but Miller suggests framing the decision as a way to protect elderly loved ones. “I really do think that it’s perfectly acceptable to say, ‘I’m sorry you’re not vaccinated. You know, Grandma’s here, and by you coming, that increases her risk substantially,’ ” he says.
Just be sure NOT to tell Grandma of the following that the gatekeepers at NPR wouldn’t divulge, even if it meant they could have not one, not two, but three or more helpings of tasty Thanksgiving treats to aid in the expansion of their wasteline. Thank the gods there isn’t a mandate of a vaccine for the overweight. If there were, this shit would end immediately.
Latest devastating news on the vaccine:
If you weren’t already convinced, you double your risk of cardiac incidents and the rate of stillborn babies is up by 29 times (but only if your are vaccinated.) by stevekirsch.substack.com
I’m getting a lot of people telling me about this abstract that appeared in Circulation, which is arguably the top-rated journal on cardiology. This was incorporated in my latest slide deck (slide 26 and 27 at the time this is being written).
Yes, this is a big deal. But nobody is listening. Cardiac risk could go up 1,000X after vaccination and it wouldn’t matter. Nobody is listening. This article is proof of that.
Here’s the punch line from the abstract:
These changes resulted in an increase of the PULS score from 11% 5 yr ACS risk to 25% 5 yr ACS risk. At the time of this report, these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vac. We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.
Ho hum. Is the gravy still hot? Are there any mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin or apple pie with pillows of whipped cream left? I’ve got some tonnage to add to my frame. And thank God the unvaxxed aren’t here.
God help us of how we’ve allowed these government and media fuckers to pit us against each other – the poked vs. the unpoked, and in the end we are all of the same blood, the same hopes, the same fears, the same unknown.
