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Snopes: Study Alleging a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism ‘Unpublished’ By Journal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

 

tinfoilhat

 

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.

Doing videos again

 

One of the things that have happened to me is because of the Coronavirus outbreak, I have resumed doing videos and posting them to my YouTube Channel, which kind of let fall to the wayside given that I work full time, and usually am too tired (or in the case of Fridays, have been drinking.) The sheer insanity of what has been going on has put a major bug up my ass, and given that I have a very nice camcorder that my hubby got me for Christmas a few years back (a Canon VIXIA that shoots in full 1080 HD video,) I figured that I would charge it up, mount it on my GorillaPod 3X, and cut loose.  I am playing it smart this time though, and only posting videos while I am sober.  That way, I don’t come across looking like a total ass, which if anyone has seen previous videos, shows that I can be a total ass.  So, without further ado, here are my three latest videos:

Alrighty then…Andrew Cuomo is doing everything that he can to contain COVID-19.

The federal government?  Bupkis.

Trump has EXPERTS telling him what needs to be done, but all he is concerned about is how well he is doing in the polls (which isn’t good, from what I hear.) So he thinks that giving every American family a check for $1000 is doing some good?

Nope, he is trying to polish the turd that his Presidency has become. He is hoping that the $1000 checks will make people WANT to vote for him. It’s bribery, plain and simple, and it is coming out of our tax dollars.

His right-wing supporters will cry “IT’S SOCIALISM!” But those assholes will be the first to line up outside the banks to cash them.

 

Grow up and grow a brain, America

Isn’t this how the first Resident Evil movie started?

About the whole bullshit about the COVID-19 (aka the Corona Virus.)

One: I wash my hands after I piss and/or shit.

Two: I cover my mouth and nose when I sneeze, and if I am near a sink and soap, I wash my hands.

Three: I am not obsessive-compulsive about using hand sanitizer (but I will do so if I am not near a sink and soap.)

Four: I do not listen to the bullshit coming out of Donald Trump’s mouth about the Corona Virus.

Five: I do listen to what the WHO (World Health Organization) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) have to say.

Excuse the fuck out of me for using logic and filtering out the tin-foil hat conspiracy bullshit that is permeating the Internet in general

(and Facebook and Twitter to be specific.)

Grow up and grow a brain, America
