We know that big social media is about control and "approved" narratives, more or less, but its also an easy way to stay in touch with family and friends, especially far away. I guess its part of a Faustian deal, as long as we think they don't control us altogether.

The following is something that the widow of one of my older cousins wrote last night. I think she is in her mid-70s. Anyway, she not really laying blame for her feeling ill on the covid vax but does mention it. Facebook's word scan/sentence structure algorithm picked it up as a possible criticism of the vaccine so put in their fairly mild editorial comment that "the vax is safe, etc". I find it very interesting that such "powers to be" are as sensitive to any perceived criticism of the vax.If the vax is the best thing since sliced bread. Why all the hyper protection around it...??

"Not feeling so great. (Not sure if Covid Vaccine has anything to do with it or not except for sore, stiff arm.) Upset stomach all afternoon and night. Lots of nasal drainage. Cough on and off. Headache. Taking more Tylenol Extra Strength and heading to bed. (Just heard the snowplow go by again.)

(facebook sign) COVID-19 vaccines go through many tests for safety and effectiveness and are monitored closely. Source: World Health Organization

The very fact that the leftists are so adamant that everyone get the vaccine makes me skeptical about it. What do they have to gain by being so controlling? Why can't they just live and let live?

There has to be more to it.

That is the very reason that I have given up on FB and deleted my account, even though it was as you said a good way to keep in touch with folks far away.
The older I get the less tolerant I get towards this kind of BS . I don't need that snottnose Zuckerberg and his ilk to tell me what I can think or not.

The powers that be have always been in control of what we see. Now everyday folks have the ability to communicate with thousands they have started showing their cards trying to keep it in check.

I don't believe the left really care about individuals and I have many points that support this idea, therefore I have many theories that point to there having to be an alternative motive behind this whole covid thing. The whole scenario has too many falsehoods, lies and deceptions when one look beyond the propaganda they keep putting out. The people at the top keep getting richer, more powerful, more corrupt and farther beyond the control of the laws of this country and by telling the people, they are looking out for the best interest of the people, we keep letting them become more corrupt.

I believe the new word used nowadays by the libs is “misinformation”. I cant understand why/how anyone on the right still has a FB page for personal use. The telephone has been around a lot longer. I can see why a business uses it as their website, about it.

Its literally a page right out of the communist playbook. All communist regimes strive to control the media in the early stages. Once they gain control of the media its all over. We are seeing it happen right before our eyes. Trumps presidency shed so much light on the issue I dont know how anyone didnt see it. There are still a few honest news organizations left but you have to search for them. The MSM and big tech have been totally taken over by the left. FB is a giant with more control than many realize. I am constantly amazed at how much control and power FB has. We use a marketing company out of Utah that specializes in FB adds and believe me it works. Their "fact Checking" should scare even the dimmest among us.

Among so many other lies, look at the timeline. China virus (SARS-CoV-2) has been documented in Barcelona Spain in March of 2019 and New York in November of 2019. So... it was spreading in Europe for a year and the US for at least five months... WITHOUT ANYONE NOTICING... before it suddenly became the world ending plague?? C'mon!!

The cruise and naval ship data was another eye opener in early 2020. Zero safety protocols, no masks, no distancing, crowded quarters, etc PLUS maximum exposure for MONTHS... yet less than 40% caught China virus and less than 1% died. Of the deaths, all were over 70 years old and/or had two or more comorbidities. In other words, the seriously sick (PRIOR to catching China virus) died and the healthy lived. Which is... just life as normal. Doh!

We've watched this same cycle throughout history. It ALWAYS progresses and ends horrifically.
Is this the time we jump out of the loop? Doubtful.

If we can stop Covid, we won’t have to deal with variants that could be more serious. India is a a huge hotspot and they are largely unvaccinated.

As a free market and libertarian type I am immediately skeptical of anything so desirable that the government is going to force me to buy or use it. Obama care would be a good example. If it is that great of a deal wouldn't ppl be lined up to get it?

Seatbelts: If I am haulin a youngin I can be fined and charged with child endangerment if I don't seatbelt the little one in. That would sound reasonable except that if you put that child on a bus with 30 more just like him no seatbelts needed.

Something is a lil off if you ask me

Maybe it has less to do with ones politics and more to do with their ability to do a dab or critical thinkin.

Riddle me this: if a retailer put down lines or foot prints to guide us while waiting to check out and spaced these spots 6 ft apart then the line gets so long ppl have to push a cart between them, what is the "social distance" between the guy w/ the cart and the 2 ppl in line he passes between?

Answer is 3 ft

DuxDawg makes some good points. I saw a virologist talking about the cruise ship. He said it was the perfect scenario to study the virus. Lifelabs has developed antibody tests with the idea to test people to see who might already have immunity. Our Territorial government is getting pressure to start using these tests, but they wont budge. I think they dont want people to know that a large percentage of the population already have immunity to the virus.

Now there are reports that vaccine effectiveness goes way down when they wait months between shots. Canada is totally ignoring those warnings, and are grabbing every vial of vaccine that they can get their hands on even if its been banned in other countries, like J&J and AstraZeneca. They are spending millions on adds telling Canadians how safe these two are, and as amazing as it sounds, people are rolling up their sleeves.

If we just go on with life the more people that contract it and get better (which is touted by doctors as being much more effective protection than the vaccine) the better the herd immunity gets.

Will Covid ever disappear? You've got to be an idiot to believe it will. Think about it, it is a Corona virus. You know what else is a Corona virus? The common cold.

I think there is a large percentage of people who confuse the common cold with the common flu via self diagnosis. This makes the symptoms of Covid19 feel much worse than they actually are when one contracts it. It has aided in the overhype of Covid19.

I can recall two times in my life where I was sick and the symptoms were considerably worse than when I had Covid19 last November (I tested positive for Covid antibodies in January 2021). Actually one of those times I ended up in the ER due to dehydration. I have had the common cold many times and those symptoms were mild compared to Covid19.
