  1. “According to the CDC the Pfizer vaccine is 95% effective at preventing coronavirus after two doses of the vaccine”
    So apparently there is some sort of magical force field around the US. Because Israel uses this vaccine and is reporting 40% of their new cases are among the vaccinated. The same holds true for the UK which is reporting more than 50% are among the vaccinated. So, what I would like to know is from what magical fishbowl of male bovine organic fertilizer that “95% effective” number came. Because it certainly has nothing to do with current facts.
    And exactly why the near panic desire to get these children vaccinated against a virus they are in virtually no danger from? And which have repeatedly been shown NOT to be a significant transmission vector? What sane person would even allow them to be experimented upon with a vaccine with ZERO long term testing for safety? There’s something evil and dark among us.
