A Curmudgeon’s Viewpoint (July 27, 2020)

Show me the fuckin’ proof

 

pragmatism

 

Now, I wrote this back in February of 2013:

“I am a pragmatist. I do not speculate, I do not use blind faith to make choices. I need facts to make decisions. I don’t believe in something until I have proof that I should believe in it. I am an advertiser’s worst nightmare. I don’t buy a product because someone says it will make my life better. I have to believe that it will have some benefit to me.”

Now, people that I have thought of as rational people are getting their knickers in a bind because of vaccines again. Yes, they are fast tracking a vaccine for the coronavirus. And I hope that they can find an effective one. I for one, do believe in the value of vaccines. I DO NOT believe that they are the cause of autism. I DO NOT believe that Bill Gates is trying to usher in a “New World Order” by getting everyone vaccinated and have a microchip implanted so we can be tracked by RFID. The autism-vaccine link? It’s been debunked time and time again. I get the flu vaccine every year and guess what? I DON’T HAVE AUTISM! AND I DON’T GET THE FLU! Do a little fuckin’ research and grow a fuckin’ brain, people. Like I did:

Snopes: Study Alleging a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism ‘Unpublished’ By Journal

Mayo Clinic: Autism-vaccine link debunked

Centers for Disease Control: Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism

PublicHealth.org: Vaccine Myths Debunked

BBC News: Coronavirus: Bill Gates ‘microchip’ conspiracy theory and other vaccine claims fact-checked

USA Today: Fact check: Bill Gates is not planning to microchip the world through a COVID-19 vaccine

Snopes: Are Bill Gates and the ID2020 Coalition Using COVID-19 To Build Global Surveillance State?

Reuters: False claim: Bill Gates planning to use microchip implants to fight coronavirus

What it boils down to is, if they come out with a  tested, proven, and safe vaccine for the coronavirus, I’ll get it.

Excuse the fuck outta me if my pragmatism gets in the way of you denying me the right to make my choice whether to take a vaccine or not.
