I suppose that means polio doesn't exist then :shock:
Here's a tissue to wipe away the snotty.

I don't know any adults that got a polio booster.

Have you gotten one? :|

I wonder if polio boosters are included in the cocktails that soldiers get, soldiers who live by another set of civil liberties.
You're can't be that stupid.
Not only that stupid, but deplorable and ignorant.

And you're not helping me get any better, Professor Knowledge.

I wonder how that dosage and timing were determined for the polio vaccine, decades in the making and released shortly after the thalidomide debacle. Was it learned from controlled testing, or was it learned by experimenting on the public with a new booster shot as each new variant of polio was discovered.

An interesting thing I stupidly discovered is that polio mutates more easily than HIV, and yet a vaccine was created for polio, and they can't create one for HIV. Looks like so far, Covid-19 is more like HIV than polio, in that respect.

Could you look into that, and also the thing about using the public for experiments without a control group?

Fauci had his nose into HIV, too, and he was criticized by scientists for his recommendations.

Perhaps the world is a better place because Fauci didn't have his nose into polio.

Biden ascribes his purpose and actions to the oldest profession, which is also a personality type, but since he's a politician getting him to admit it would be tough, but he is in decline which could make it easier.

His last speech was another doozy.

He was the angry old man yelling at clouds.

(All rather more gentile than calling him something like a whore, or calling him a whore, wouldn't you agree?)

The reason that all the conspiracy 'theories' originate in the US, and why they 'think' that it's all a hoax and that it's just a 'little cold virus' is because Americans are fucking morons who can't tell the difference between 'movies' and real life. You hear it all the time; 'Waah, when that plane crashed it looked JUST LIKE A MOVIE', 'Waaah, I thought it was a MOVIE when that bus hit that old man on the mobility scooter', 'Wah wah, is this a MOVIE or have I really just shot my own kneecap off?'...
Because this pandemic isn't causing people to explode in the street or wander around as zombies, foaming at the mouth and devouring everyone they see, then they assume it's not a 'real' pandemic.
Umm, listen here you stupid yank fuckwits, THIS is what a pandemic in the REAL world that we all live in at THIS TIME looks like.
Phew!

yep, your life, liberty, property are yours; my life, liberty, property are mine

nope, I never said I believe I have a right to shoot someone DEAD for just touchin' my toothpick

👎
WHEN will 'you', human beings, START hearing AND reading thee ACTUAL WORDS that I ACTUALLY DO say AND write here, and START reply to THEM?

I NEVER said NOR wrote that you said, "I believe I have a right to shoot someone DEAD for just touching my toothpick".

What I ACTUALLY DID say AND write IS:
you BELIEVE you can SHOOT ANY one DEAD for just touching a toothpick, which you CLAIM is YOURS.

This is a BELIEF 'you' have, and are HOLDING ONTO DEARLY, correct?

Oh, and by the way, this FURTHER DETRACTION and DISTRACTION does NOT take away from the Fact of what you ACTUALLY say AND write that is the ACTUAL CONTRADICTION here.

You can TRY AGAIN to DISTRACT, but it just is NOT working.

you will NOT wear one because you only care about 'you'.

...from this?

unless the mask is form-fittin' and flitered, the most it'll do is redirect the virus up and back

if you want to LOOK AT and SEE thee ACTUAL Truth of 'things'

a test: ask a friend who smokes or vapes to take a drag, slip the mask on, then exhale normally

multiple plumes of smoke or vape will stream from his mask

another test: wear a mask, break wind

you'll smell your own flatulence

again: a form-fittin', filtered mask is effective; the kind most folks wear (like the one in the pic I posted above) are for show

but, really, if you wanna wear a mask, age, please do: it's absolutely no skin offa my nose

I won't
BUT did I get, you will NOT wear one because you only care about 'you'. from 'this', what you wrote here?

WHY did you ASSUME I did?
henry quirk wrote: Thu Jan 13, 2022 12:38 pm the mask you wear, age: it's one of them form-fittin', filtered jobs, yeah?
LOL Who says I even wear one?

WHEN 'you', human beings, STOP ASSUMING 'things' in what I am SAYING and MEANING, which, by the way, is in VERY CLEARLY WRITTEN ACTUAL words for ALL of 'you' to SEE before you here, then you will STOP MISTAKING so MANY 'things' here.

Look, BECAUSE I CHALLENGED and QUESTION you about A CLAIM of yours, then this does NOT mean that I am or am not doing ANY thing either way.

In fact, on MANY occasions even when COMPLETELY AGREEING with what "another" is SAYING I STILL CHALLENGE and QUESTION "them" over it.

I thought so...if I'm wrong then I got no clue what point you're reachin' for, or what your challenge is supposed to expose.
