I was accused of giving in to my **FEAR** over COVID. So let me be perfectly clear:
Not once, since this "pandemic" started - not since I first heard of the Wuhan Flu back in 2019 - there has not been one single moment that I have been "afraid" of this virus.
My *anger* at people's irrational reactions to it has grown without bound.
so done with sports in general. even NCAA sucks, where is still thought there was a sliver of integrity. nope
Imagine the egg on their face if a widely distributed vaccine with EUA wasn't approved. My basic bitch SOC101 analysis says:
1) No rule will change. The FDA will approve most (probably all) vaccines with EUA anyway.
2) They will improvise to explain how approval (a latent goal) is consistent with their manifest goal (safety).
3) Media will say concerns about FDA approval are satisfied. Notice they didn't acknowledge the concerns were valid until the goal posts were cleared (moved).
"Hesitant" != "Non-compliance"
I am basing my refusal on moral, philosophical grounds. If I consent to this then I am admitting that I have no freedom of movement, right to work, live, associate or even free speech, if those rights and freedoms are under any condition that violates my body or sovereignty.
We have already given away enough freedoms.
With the currently published rate of adverse effects, the COVID drugs from Pfizer and Moderna will never reach the 2019 criteria for FDA approval as a vaccine. Under those rules, they should be rejected for safety reasons and sent back to be reformulated.
The only thing that can result in the current batch of candidates receiving full FDA approval would a change of rules due to political pressure. And to be perfectly honest, I'm surprised that hasn't happened yet.
Please stop using the gaslighted term "hesitancy". "Hesitant" means you're not sure or skeptical. It means you're waiting for more information. Saying "hesitant" suggests that they will be all-in once they're presented with the right type of propaganda.
Most of the people being labeled as "hesitant" actually are experiencing "refusal", as in hell no. They've got all the info they need, and have concluded that Fauci can put that needle where the sun don't shine.
