Anti vaxxers vocally so
Church-driven decisions
Parents and children left behind
Just makes you mad

I lost an old schoolmate recently as well. He was staunchly anti-big pharma and trusted no vaccine except the Cuban jab, which he was never able to get. Highly educated guy who would spout foolish statements about graphine oxide being in the non-Cuban vaccines. At one point he stated that the blood of unvaccinated people will soon be valuable, presumably because he believed that vaccinated people will need to cleanse themselves with unvaxxed blood. He was a huge believer in ivermectin as well, but that did not help him in the end cry

I'm starting to view unvaccinated covid deaths as suicides cool

You have to understand why they’re didn’t adopt bleach but adopted Ivomec.
That might inform future corrective actions

you cannot predict this virus,2 of my daughters and their housholds came down with this new strain, their uncles , aunts and cousins too in spite of cancelling Xmas and New years activites. My friend grandson caught it twice within 3 week period at school.

I caught it about april fool day 2020, (mild) at that time only about 30 people had tested postive in my county. I lost about 4 friends in 2020

And the crazy thing about it is that most of the proponents of ivermectin are the most anti-big pharma people you will meet. Last I checked Merck is a big pharma company, but that matters not to the ivermectin posse ...

This fella had IT and law degrees and was admitted to the bar. He also lectured at UWI. There is a poster on this site who likes to call people educated fools, but his name escapes me smile

One of the things about Covid that makes it very dangerous is that you can have it and be asymptomatic. If I have a cold I know that I have a cold. If I have the flu I know that I have the flu. Not so with Covid. So I can have Covid and unknowingly spread it to several others

I don't have the slightest idea. I have given up on the ivermectin gang. I just hope that they don't catch Covid.

I went to a Christmas Eve party in Bim and at least 7 of the 20 people who attended came down with Covid.



So, how come you didn’t come down with it? Are you triple boosted? smile


Anyhow, at the beginning of the pandemic, my step-niece and her husband both came down with the virus, he pretty badly and in a severe fight with death, which he overcame.

Just this past December, a sister in Montreal was all set to go for her annual trip to Bim, and having gone to the Dorval Airport on Dec 26 for her PCR test within the 72 hrs. of her departure, was to find out a day later that she had tested positive for the virus; her Dec 28th. trip to Bim up in smoke. What a bummer.

Yes, I'm double vaccinated and boosted. Luckily it was an outdoor party. I don't know how many of the 20 who attended the party caught Covid. But those who tested positive had to delay their departures from Bim about one week until they tested negative.

I took some Abbott at-home covid tests with me to Barbados, and we tested ourselves before going to get tested so that we could return to Florida. Fortunately we were all negative, but if one of us had tested positive on one of those at-home tests, I would have had to mobilize my alternate plan to get out of Bim smile

Let's just say I know people who know people smile But PM level intervention would not have been necessary.

All he has to do is say he went Cawmere, get some Cawmere friend to say yeah and Bob is your uncle big grin

We are all inclusive

A couple years ago I went to our yearly reunion and saw some people I know went to Kolij and Lodge

So I asked WTF

The fellas tell me not only them but from all the other schools and started to laugh

When I asked, they said, “ dem fellas said their schools aren’t as close as we are and they feel welcome here. So we felt sorry for them and let them come” big grin
