Much ado about el zippo.

After all, the average (IFR) death rate of covid is a mere 0.26% of those infected (this is a stat that the media consistently and deliberately refuses to mention to the public). This means that 99.7% of the public is in NO danger from covid whether they are vaccinated or not.[1]

Actually, the source reports a median infection fatality rate of 0.26%. A median of 0.05% for people less than 70 years of age.

Listening to discussion of the covid-19 phenomenon is like reading the numbers provided in car commercials. So much down and so much for X months but you can be darn sure that that’s hardly the real story. Dave Ramsey, the radio personal finance guy, last week reported, IIRC, that, on average, a person who leases a car and then purchases it at the end of the lease pays an effective interest rate of 14% for what is in essence a plain vanilla car loan. So with the hysteria over the virus. The IFR should drive all official action but it doesn’t. You don’t hear about it. The mere existence of the virus is treated like a guaranteed sentence of death unless . . . .

And the 14%, if you will, is in that “unless.” But it’s not a relatively endurable, if unwise, cost like that. No. The “unless” is what amounts to a vicious, mandatory, pointless attack on millions of workers and small businesses. For nothing. For something that is no threat whatsoever.

The rest of Mr. Smith’s article is grimmer and, applying the Sherlockian formula, I am in complete agreement. Impossible for there to be good will. Therefore, ill will, no matter how improbable. A ton.

This vaccine obsession is sick and dangerous. And there is for darn sure another agenda being followed. Vaccinate babies? Sure, you sick bastards.

    Memo from company mgt today included the following lines:

    I am disappointed to review data that indicates that the number of employees not wearing masks does not correlate with the percentage of teammates that have self-certified their vaccination stays. In other words, the number of unmasked employees is greater than the number of self-certified vaccinated employees. This indicates that either employees are not vaccinated and not wearing masks or employees are vaccinated but do not care to self-certify. Regardless, this is troubling and does not meet my expectation to Do What’s Right.

    The self-certification options are basically, yes, no, nearly done, planning to do, and I decline to answer at this time. The company mandated last month that employees make a selection.

    The use of “do not care” in the memo was deliberate IMO.

    I expect mandatory vaccination requirement next month. This is wrong. It is not Doing What’s Right. It is pressuring employees to get an experimental treatment with poor efficacy, and unknown long term effects against a disease most under 65s will survive ok.

    I will lose my livelihood if I do not comply and my wife is pressuring me not to refuse, but if I don’t stand up for this, then what else is next?

  1. A good friend of mine is now facing a similar decision.  His employer is mandating The Jab.  He’s already determined he’ll go off on his own and, anticipating such, has already formed an LLC and has a website up and running.

    If they force him out they’ll lose one of the best process / automation equipment engineers they have.
