Confabulat: Hell, we didn't even discover DNA until what, like 1945? I can't remember exactly.


1953. The science has come on at an astonishing rate for such a short time.

Penn and Teller on Vaccinations
Youtube RfdZTZQvuCo


Older video about vaccinations and autism, and overly dramatic with dubious statistical outcomes, but the logic holds

It ends with the rest of us giving up in futility as the rich and powerful give cover to anti-science BS? It ends with us suffering because those believing fake things refuse to do the right thing long after it's become clear to everyone else that they are ruining everything?

It makes me want to vomit that I live in a time when dipshiats refuse to enjoy one of the greatest breakthroughs in public health history. An mRNA vaccine would have been unimaginable even 30 years ago. Hell, we didn't even discover DNA until what, like 1945? I can't remember exactly.

But seeing dimwitted Trump supporters whine that it's some sort of magic that will change your DNA and convert you to a Democrat, it's just so sad and embarrassing to be a human being in 2021.

Brian Kahn's mind is gonna be blown when he takes a look at healthcare, recycling, sugar, cigarettes, leaded gasoline, and a host of other "political" issues.

Corporatists and those in power and wealth use the same pattern every time they want to keep killing people so they can make a profit/stay in power.

1) Preach the benefits of something anyone with functioning braincells can see is bad.

2) Suppress any evidence to the contrary.

3) Obfuscate the facts when the evidence becomes overwhelming.

4) Claim consumers must be free to be personally responsible knowing a great many won't be.

5) Profit. By making the costs public while privatizing the profits.

The goal is always to surround their profit centers with as much noise as possible in order to maintain profits for as long as possible. They don't give a shiat about the real human costs.

If you look at the polls on real issues there is very little a majority of Americans do not agree on. Yet all the noise is doing it's job to make people angry and feel cut off from their fellow citizens.

This is the natural outgrowth of sociopaths trying to retain power in a democracy. The people have all the real power so the sociopaths have to make damned sure the people never realize this.

The vaccination "debate" is a little more tricky since AFAIK a resurgent plague is not in their best interests. I think it's largely an unintended consequence they are trying to manage. Either that or they are pruning those they consider economically useless.

Dave The Slushy: make me some tea: Crossposting this chart to illustrate the difference between unvaccinated vs. breakthrough vaccinated cases.

I'm a truly horrible person for hoping the current generation of vaccines will maintain efficacy indefinitely even if we get an even deadlier variant aren't I?


You're a horrible person for hoping a disease doesn't overcome our current measures against it which would lead to massively increased amounts of suffering and death???

/yes, i know what you meant

And if they had even a smattering of science knowledge, they'd understand that while RNA is related to DNA, all mRNA does is act as a messenger, and in the case of the vaccine, it has the instructions to tell your immune system on how to make antibodies that can bind to the protein spike on the virus.  And that's all.

But then again, it doesn't help that we've got assholes in positions of power that tell them all the crazy sh*t they believe. And they lap it up as if it came from the mouth of Gawd.
