This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

There's also the effectively unverifiable assumption I've heard that the unvaccinated are less likely to subject themselves to testing (excepting those that are hospitalized). It might make sense in a gut feeling sort of way, but it's not something that can really be studied in an effective manner.

I've never been tested. I don't comply with any part of this bullshit charade.

Latest official data from the UK, see Table 5 as usual: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1018547/Technical_Briefing_23_21_09_16.pdf

Two third of covid deaths are "fully vaccinated". But if they hadn't been jabbed, it would have been worse!

So how exactly do you know you've actually had covid, not just the cold you said its symptoms were like?

Because someone else ill at the same time was dumb enough to get tested.

Guess their symptoms must've been a lot worse than yours then, to make them take a test. 🤷‍♂️

but YOU DON'T ACTUALLY KNOW you had it!

They were, but I'm much healthier than they are.

But it's the most infectious disease EVAR, don't you know!

I don't think anyone has claimed it is the most infectious disease, ever.  But it doesn't have to be. 

Here's a list of infectious diseases

What's telling is that diseases that are highly transmissible and have an associated mortality rate have also been addressed.  Smallpox is worse that Covid - so we eliminated it.  Polio was probably about as bad as Covid, so we created a vaccine and have been close to wiping it out. 
When I say objectively, I mean 'subjectively'.  When I say literally, I mean 'figuratively'.  
And when I say that you are a horse's ass, I mean that the objective truth is that you are a literal horse's ass.

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all. - Peter Drucker

So stunning. So brave.

Oh wait, you are complying with the bullshit charade, you're just too stupid to recognize you're the one being fooled. The My Pillow guy fully supports your brand of dumb.

Never been tested, never worn a mask, never been jabbed, never used hand sanitiser, ignore anti-social distancing, never used the government tracking app. Which part of the covid theatre am I complying with, exactly?

I'm not pretending the sniffles merit changing the way I live.

You're complying with the moronic fools that dismiss that it has caused significant illnesses and deaths worldwide for the past 1.75 years.

It hasn't. The whole scam rests on bogus testing and a completely new way of measuring death. Take them away and it's equivalent to a bad flu year.

How does the scam work? By this I mean who are the scammers, how are they implementing the scam and what's their endgame?

Have you seen--with your own eyes--real people die from COVID-19?  I have. If they're faking it for a scam, then these are some awesome talents.

  • Create a bioweapon in China, bypassing US laws prohibiting it
  • Run simulations on outcomes of releasing bioweapon
  • Release (accidentally?) the bioweapon.
  • Cover up the release of the bioweapon, allowing it to spread unhindered for months
  • Publish letters in prominent "discrediting" the bioweapon lab-leak.
  • Coordinate social media censorship of obvious lab origins
  • etc.

Meanwhile:
Quote
Medicare is paying hospitals $39,000 per patient put on a ventilator for C*VID19.  The government is literally paying hospitals to k*ll people, i.e., 80% of patients put on ventilators die.

Quote
Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said last month via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BelTA., that World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of “Covid Relief Aid.” In exchange for $940 million USD, the World Bank and IMF demanded that the President of Belarus:

• imposed “extreme lockdown on his people”
• force them to wear face masks
• impose very strict curfews
• impose a police state
• crash the economy

But Kiero says the bioweapon is the sniffles so it's an awful bio weapon. Who are they and what do they have to gain? How are they coordinating this with so many governments with the only world leader coming out about something being the Belarus president? If it's all so coordinated why the wildly varying reactions of different governments?

More for Kiero though, how does the scam work with the random mess made by the UK government?
