This weeks Sparky: they do their own research


  1. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    There’s absolutely no hope for these people. Just today, Dad who was himself “recovering” from COVID-19 rushed his child to the emergency room. Fortunately, for his family, his child didn’t have COVID. But Mom couldn’t celebrate that fact because she was already dead from COVID-19…

  2. Gilbert says:

    Natural immunity applies to people who have had a disease and survived it. The problem with these vaccines is antibody enhancement dependence- the protection decreases significantly every month.

  3. Steve Teller says:

    Many anti-vaxxers rebut this fact with the argument that the COVID vaccine is still “experimental”. They say they might take it when it is more “proven”.

    Translation: AVs are too chicken-sh*t to be like the people in history who received vaccines shortly after their rollout. AVs want all of the reward and none of the risk – regardless how tiny the risk may be.

    Translation Part 2: they are selfish cowards.

  4. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Just read Watt in The Star. He’s a little too enthusiastic about the leader and vaccines. In truth, Erin turned about as easily on this issue as your average aircraft carrier. O’Toole’s initial position and instincts were dead wrong — remember “challenging” what the BOIE decided? Sheer folly. It was only when we royally roasted him did reality sadly dawn on him and his office. Erin isn’t tone deaf but he isn’t quick off the mark either. So in short, still plenty of room for improvement before this party gets another credible second look from potential voters. Remember, we were ahead in the early weeks of the last campaign — and guess who blew it? Watt and others far too easily do not bear that in mind. Erin needs to continue improving as leader now that it’s clear that no block in caucus is going to try and give him the heave-ho. Erin gets one more conditional chance and only one. That’s reality.

      I wasted my time in 2005 trying to help Jamieson give Harper the heave-ho so as the late H.W. would say: not gonna do it, not gonna do it! (This time.)

  5. Phil,

    It’s my understanding that Pfizer and possibly the others are adding something to deal with these possible adverse effects. For now, I’m not getting excited. However, I will watch the percentages going forward.

  6. Steve T says:

    Not sure if the point of the link was to imply the vaccines are unsafe (which is false), or to highlight the bottom of the CDC page which very clearly states the risk is extremely low compared to the benefits of vaccination.

    I’m hopeful the latter.

  7. Gilbert says:

    There are many treatments for the coronavirus. To get Emergency Use Authorization, the pharmaceutical industry had to convince us otherwise.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:


      If natural immunity is the bees’ knees, we wouldn’t have 5 million plus dead. But absolutely agree with that last paragraph. It’s all about the money first and public health second. No question about it.

  8. Steve Teller says:

    Rather than cherry-picking one article, how about you link to the main COVID page on that website:


    Seems there are a lot more pro-vax articles than anti-vax. But this is the way of AVs: cherry pick random articles that support the conspiracy theory.

  9. Ronald O'Dowd says:


    At minimum, this is screaming ouch! There is likely reason for concern but only an MD can say for sure or not. I’m not qualified to pass judgment but I’m worried nonetheless.
