Avatars of Annoyance & Disappointment

 

The avatar known as Joe Biden needed some juice today.  So… time to bring in the heavy hitters:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi channeled her inner Jeb Bush yesterday, begging her audience for applause and signs of approval as Democrats held a self-congratulatory celebration to tout the passing of their so-called “Inflation Reduction Act.”

Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took to the lectern outside of the White House, where the Biden Administration hosted its gathering. On the same day as their celebration to mark the self-proclaimed rescue of America’s economy, the stock market took a massive tumble, after reports were released showing just how bad of shape the economy is actually in under Democrat single-party rule in DC. – via nationalfile.com

Now where the heck is that brilliant cat?

Oh! Here we go…

Whew! That helps a bit.

Anyway, ever notice how your life is no longer decorated with real human beings…yes or yes?

It’s a slew of avatar’s, either the part-time or full-time variety, weaving their way in and out of your life. They’re in your hair, in your stuff, in your way, in your head, in your bathroom, in your living room and most challenging, sometimes in your bedroom.  Oh, they’re real beings in the physical sense, but their chosen personality is that of an avatar that will drive you fucking nuts.  

And they have needs…don’t you know.  They need a lift here, need some cash there, need to live with you, need you to listen to them for hours, need you to feed them, to wash their clothes, need you to kiss their head as they walk out the door for work, need you to soften life’s blows whenever necessary – which is usually at least ten times each day.  They need you to discern, with precision, their moods, hopes, dreams and all desires.  And if you don’t come through on all accounts, they can get quite pissy.

And they’re good at pretending.  They might pretend to be your wife, your husband, your son, your daughter – even your mother or father. They’re also adept at pretending to be your friend, lover, or even good electrician. They’ll pretend day in and day out as long as there is some sort of pay-off for them, no matter how small. They’ll accept compliments and kind thoughts from you all day long.  Their selective hearing doesn’t allow them to hear anything else.

How does one detect, with certainty, that they are surrounded by avatars of annoyance and disappointment?  Simple.  Ask them for their help. Ask them to think of anything that isn’t about them.  Heck, even ask them to just think.  Ask them for empathy, ask them for their deep thoughts, ask them to share a part of themselves.  And the million dollar ask – ask them to treat you as they want to be treated.  Get bent!  It ain’t happening.

And the more advanced avatars of annoyance and disappointment – the professionals –  come only in government or corporate form.

CDC Director Admits Agency Gave False Information on Covid-19 Vaccine Safety Monitoring – via theepochtimes.com

Wait…wuuut?  No way!

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has acknowledged publicly for the first time that the agency gave false information about its COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the agency’s director, said in a letter made public on Sept. 12 that the CDC did not analyze certain types of adverse event reports at all in 2021, despite the agency previously saying it started in February 2021.

“CDC performed PRR analysis between March 25, 2022, through July 31, 2022,” Walensky said. “CDC also recently addressed a previous statement made to the Epoch Times to clarify PRR were not run between February 26, 2021, to September 30, 2021.”

Walensky’s agency had promised in severaldocuments, starting in early 2021, to perform a type of analysis called Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) on reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, which it helps manage.

But the agency said in June that it did not perform PRRs. It also said that performing them was “outside th[e] agency’s purview.”

Confronted with the contradiction, Dr. John Su, a CDC official, told The Epoch Times in July that the agency started performing PRRs in February 2021 and “continues to do so to date.”

But just weeks later, the CDC said Su was wrong.

“CDC performed PRRs from March 25, 2022 through July 31, 2022,” a spokeswoman told The Epoch Times in August.

Walensky’s new letter, dated Sept. 2 and sent on Sept. 6 to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), shows that Walensky is aware that her agency gave false information.

But not to bother with this, or any other unpleasantries.  If you need help with turning off any type of critical thinking that might be creeping upon you, just ask that friendly avatar in your life for help.  After all, they’re always there for you.
