  1. As I understand the effect (at a basic level BTW), the antibodies your body creates to attack the virus can (in some individuals) also attack the nerves because the proteins are somewhat similar. In addition, the virus itself can effect nerves in such a way as to cause the body to view them as foreign. So, I’m wondering if repeated exposures (in vaccinated individuals) for strains that the vaccine isn’t effective for can cause sufficient changes to the immune system to trick it into being unable to differentiate between self generated and foreign proteins over time. The question of time and repeated exposure, whether it results in sickness or not, is the issue (and question) for me. Each snippet of information coming out seems circular to me… they take me right back to my original questions and they still remain unanswered. We’re making progress though, a short time ago even asking these questions was problematic. As I've said before though, I have no idea what the answer is, these are simply questions I would ask in biology class. The fact checkers who preface every response with "there is no evidence to suggest" have been of little help and small comfort... at least to me.

  2. Yo... dude, where did my country go? Quote of the day: There are no alternatives to ArriveCAN. If you don’t have a smartphone, you have to do ArriveCAN through a desktop computer. If you don’t have a desktop computer; find someone who does. Are you blind, deaf, old? Too bad; get someone to help you figure it out. This is New Coke dumb. Remember in 1985 when Coca-Cola released New Coke. They didn’t say, “Oh, here’s this different Coke you could try if you want.” They stopped making the original Coke altogether and forced everybody to start drinking a new formula. Everyone hated it. But, since Coca-Cola is a business, they reversed course after their sales fell off a cliff. ArriveCAN has similarly driven Canada’s sales figures off a cliff, at least in the tourism sector, but government being government, they don’t seem to care. After all, guess who doesn’t have to fill out a pain-in-the-ass smartphone app every time they jet off to an international summit?

  3. As with firing nurses during a pandemic, truck drivers during a supply line crisis, defunding police during a crime wave, and paying veteran pilots less than truck drivers during a pilot shortage, the logic here escapes me. https://www.foxnews.com/us/us-food-supply-at-risk-amid-global-crackdown-on-agriculture-in-the-name-of-climate-change-dairy-farmer-says Farmers are already struggling with input costs (fuel, fertilizer, labour, seed, etc), what kind of liberal math calculates that there won't be food shortages if a 70% production increase (over current) is required by 2050 to fend of global hunger. Solving the nurse, truck driver, police and pilot shortage is quick and easy compared to cost of growing and equipping new farmers... you can (almost) train a doctor for the price of a new tractor. Any wonder Bill Gates is buying up agricultural land like crazy? How do you increase production while simultaneously reducing production? And, with only 71/2 years to go on the Paris Accord targets, isn't it just about time to identify the sectors of our economy you want to see cut?
