Thread: So,, MonkeyPox is an STD ??

  1. #1

    Default So,, MonkeyPox is an STD ??

    Wearing a mask is not going to help much with this new "pandemic"
    https://www.cnbc.com/2022/05/23/monk...cials-say.html

    But if you have sex with a monkey a condom would help. Unless the monkey bites you.
    And don't kiss this guy:





    I hope that I am not offending the LBQTXYZ+ crowd.



    Trying to make sense of these unsettled times,, Last night I dug out my copy of


    The Day After

    A very young John Lithgow, Jason Robards, and Steve Guttenberg

    From 1983, a straight forward plot.
    Ruskies move into West Germany,, we use tactical nukes to stop advancing Warsaw Pact forces, and the Russians retaliate with a launch of 300 ICBM's
    I can verify that we DID have tactical nukes precisely for that purpose when I was in Germany in the mid 60's.
    Artillery shells with a 1.5 kiloton yield.


    How DOES a WW start?
    Are current conditions conducive? Similar?
    Will they be after the predicted global recession ?


    The Day After focused on the complete destruction of Kansas City, and the survivors left in Lawrence, Kansas.

    We've mostly forgotten what we commonly used to know about how to survive a nuclear attack.
    You have to be as old as I am to remember Duck and Cover,, bomb shelters, and
    Bend Over, stick your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye.

    Of course, if you lived in Kansas City, survival was not an option.

    I used to keep 100# of beans and 100# of rice on the farm.
    And a couple of big bags of cat chow.
    We need to get back to that.
    Nicaragua is not going to be hit,, there is nothing here, and an ICBM probably costs more than the annual GNP of Nicaragua.

    No one is going to waste one here.
    >>>> but Nicaragua could be at the bottom of the food chain.
    No more goodies from PriceSmart

    The Condega Pali is going to empty out very fast.
    We won't get the radiation that slowly killed everyone in Lawrence (everyone in KC died immediately from the blast),
    but there will be a lot of very hungry people wandering around. With machetes.


    Shelley is more "Just In Time" . Enough for a couple of weeks.
    But she had a come to Jesus moment after the movie.

    Just In Time is what all the hospitals do now. The inventory is on a slow boat from China.
    Not like it was in 1983, when they had enough stuff to last until everyone died.


    Like KC,, the people in the nursing homes in NY had no chance when Covid appeared
    Many of the rest of us did. And we survived.
    Monkey Pox should be much easier to avoid:

    No sex with men,, and if you have to,, wear a condom and minimize the Kissey Face part of it.
    See reference to monkeys above.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/nbc-out/out-...ries-rcna36789


    More and more research is being done as to precisely why some of the population of the population suffered serious illness and death,
    and others . An interesting finding was,, people with type O blood were less likely to suffer serious illness or death

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8286549/


    The COVID story is far from written.
    It will probably be years or decades before we get beyond the political correctness currently prevalent,
    and find out what precisely happened.

    Gettin' the World War III blues?

    Monkeypox was added to the global show of power to make sure that the message of the 12 Monkeys gets through to prevent any time-travellers from altering the Great Reset. Apparently only future sodomites will be able to time travel.

    Nukes? None of those-who-will-rule want the radioactive contamination in their lands. Besides, they're confident that brutish war is unnecessary. Plague, pestulence, famine and utterly total economic and technological collapse will suffice to reduce the powerless rabble to an easily managable few and destroy all vestiges of former governments. Woke armies will be pathetic jokes.

    The Ukraine fiasco was initiated to more expediently bankrupt the Military-Industrial complex of the richest nation in a mini-forever-war while Big Pharma continues its psychological stranglehold.

    Let's not forget how this new millenia began.

    Sanctions--the new warfare--starve somebody's kids rather than shoot their soldiers in the field. Oh how civilized we have become!

    Believe it are not, the US military is having recruiting problems this year, starting with youth obesity.

    How come preverts can say "We need to protect our own" but if normal people said that they would be bludgeoned by the Thought Police?

    Covid was an intelligence test and we flunked.

    Most of this Monkey Pox news coverage is better explained by Hanlon's razor rather some grand media scheme.

    The news cycle was primed for (any) health story and it was timed just right - Up here there is not much in the news other than Vaccine clinics for "at risk groups" - And they know who they are..

    Our waste water signatures are still up for Covid - hospitalisations are creeping up but with 60% with 3 shots most of Canuckistan should fare the winter well.

    Hanlon's Razor: "never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity." Too often, malice puts stupidity in charge of things on purpose. Media people aren't stupid because they can't afford better people, they're stupid because they're paid to be stupid.

    I stumbled across some news article that claimed the standard smallpox vaccine is 80% effective against monkey pox.
    This begs a few questions,, like how do they know that ??

    The US supposedly has a deep stockpile of smallpox vaccine available.

    I see a B movie plot in the making here: Small pox vaccine is released but only to the "at risk community"
    "Heterosexuals can go pound pound sand" says the Biden administration.
    "There are too many of them anyway"

    Iran unleashes a weaponized small pox that spreads like wildfire around the world.

    The gays inherit the earth.
    Wasn't there some biblical prediction to that effect.

    I should probably buy a dress just in case . . . . . transgenders will probably qualify for the vaccine too.

    Why not? Who cares? What's difficult to accept is that effectively all news & all social media is controlled by forces bent on the total destruction of the USA (the West). Woke talk, CRT in schools, 'trans' rights and the usurption of English pronouns to personally redefine reality - all in all - is a sideshow to a sideshow, to distract "Enquiring" minds from the total takeover of their country.

    The WEF/CCP plans are on track. War is not necessary. The Ukraine-Putin sideshow is intended to economically drain the players and maintain 'fear' (of nuclear war). A central aspect of the WEF plan is the ESG score - not unlike the CCP's social credit score which allows totalitarian control of the population. Except WEF's ESG puts 'environment' first, which equals the zombie corps' Green New Deal (only low carbon technologies score high). In this period of critical energy shortfalls, all new oil, gas & coal developments in the West have been stopped (disallowed). Meanwhile the USA's zombie king is selling its strategic oil reserves on the open market, to China's CCP, to payoff debt - rather than using it to produce gasoline & diesel in country.

    News to me. https://www.newsweek.com/what-did-ge...es-say-1722502


    A modern Rosetta Stone
    The guide stones had a set of 10 principles engraved on them in eight different languages, including Arabic, English, Hebrew, Hindi, Russian, Spanish, Swahili and Traditional Chinese.
    Seems a shame to destroy it, but, hell, the world population was already 4,357,000,000 when it was built in 1979. So how does ome humanely eliminate nearly 4 billion humans to bring us in balance with Nature (1st principle)? Monkeypox?

    The year it was erected the Chinese began their one child policy.

    Well, all I can say is,,

    If you can't beat them,, might as well join them"

    I draw the line at kissing gay guys,, however.
    I do have some standards, however minimal


    I do think that we just happen to be in a dark place right now.
    It's discouraging to see what is less (transgender) than 1% of the population figure so prominently in Biden's administration. Like Hunter,, it's a real freak show.
    I can't keep track of who's transgender,, and who's just queer.
    Biden makes crackheads as seem normal as apple pie, compared to his preferred alternatives

    We need a more Reaganesque version of Trump to clean house

    Lenin explained, "The goal of socialism is communism".

    WELCOME TO THE HUNGER GAMES! SPONSORED BY GLOBALISTS AND DEMOCRATS.



    Rwanda showed us that you can kill a lot of people quickly with relatively primitive weapons (In Rwanda,, mostly clubs studded with nails).

    Russia wanted to show that you don't have to destroy infrastructure or render useless vast areas due to radiation.
    Weaponized small pox would work quicker and better.
    The end of the Soviet Union put an end to those dreams,
    but they had the small pox loaded into the noses of ICBMs, insulated and refrigerated to ensure viability when it was released.
    The weaponized small pox had higher transmission rate, and greater mortality.
    There are other biological agents,,
    like plague or anthrax, and nerve agents, but small pox is easy to spread, easy to manufacture,
    and a cheap way to disable and then kill a lot of people.

    Based on what we saw with COVID immunizations,, can you imagine how long it would take to get 350 million Americans a small pox shot?
    It's not actually a shot. They use a bifurcated needle to shallowly pierce the skin, and rub some of the vaccine into the broken skin.

    Most of us don't remember this. I was vaccinated three or four times, the last being prior to entering the Army
    I still have a faint tattoo where the needle was pushed into my upper arm four times.

    Deciding to end vaccination for small pox made a lot of sense.
    The vaccine caused a lot of serious reactions.

    But the decision was one hell of a roll of the dice.

    Continuing to attempt to understand the aftermath of the coming apocalypse, biological, WW III, or a Biden re-election ,,
    I revisited Mad Max Thunderdome.

    I'd always thought that Mad Max portrayed a nuclear aftermath,, but Captain Walker's cargo cult had "Pox Eclipse" painted a cliff face.

    Anyway,, it turns out the Mad Max franchise was based on the societal collapse in Australia after the 1973 oil embargo.
    So,, more like what is happening in Democrat let cities in the US now.


    Who Knew??
    I was in San Francisco at the time and remember the oil embargo as more of a PIA than anything else.
    Like an EV today,, you couldn't take a long trip because you couldn't count on the availability of fuel along the way.
    But at the time there were refineries across the bay in Martinez, so we had gas.
    It seemed that the further you were away from a refinery,, the more you suffered.
    Which makes sense.


    There were workarounds:
    You were limited to 10 gallons and could only buy gas on days that corresponded to your license plate number's last digit
    Odd and Even. That was easy, another license plate with two magnets glued to the back.
    It was a simpler time.

    The lines were long,, but you gassed your company car up on company time, sooooo,


    I was still a Kennedy liberal until then. A democrat. Hard to believe that now.
    Of course,, JFK today would be a kinder, gentler,, more articulate, and more refined version of Donald Trump.

    History does repeat itself. Do we learn from past lessons?
    Some of us,, maybe.

    So, as a result of the sacrifice of so many unwanted girl babies, the PLA has an excess of crazy horny men whose only idea of getting fucked is in a human-wave attack against ugly round eyes.

    Tucker announced last nite that your Ken-doll son of Castro has totally solded out to China and that the CCP effectively controls Canada. (Except for some brass-balled holdouts among the truckers.) Even with our zombie king's mind essentially having been reprogrammed in Beijing and all our top players in finance, gov't (both parties) & media, having sold their loyalties to the CCP for big bucks, are now taking direct orders from their Manchurian masters . . . even tho this is true, the dumb & dumber redneck majority of Americans refuse to concede defeat and hold onto hope against all odds that they can put America right side up in November. God bless & protect them, for it's expected the media fearporn & federal lockdowns will build up to peak pandemic levels come November.

    I heard that Cannucks are now required to get perpetual anti-covid booster jabs every 9 months, that is, if you want to go anywhere. Today it was announced on Bannon's warroom that all Pfizer & Moderna mRNA "vaccines" are now manufactured in the USA by the CCP's SinoPharm . . . for distribution throughout the West.

    Their mRNA is not natural, but modified to be actve longer in the immune system and thus creating more spike protein - which is decidedly toxic - over a longer period in the body, and yet producing fewer antibodies against covid in a couple months.

    Count me on Tina Turner's team. I can't remember who won, but she looks like a winner.

    Australia had few covid fatalities, as I recall, but their lockdowns were more like Soviet era gulag lock-ups. A surprizing fascist reaction. Why? Being so close to China? Or having once been the empire's prison colony?

    The massive US administrative state may have gotten it's beginning with FDR after the great depression and WWII, but the security state portion first moved against Americans as a nation with the assassination of JFK, tied up with the Warren commission's sellout. The post 9/11 Patriot Act was the latchkey law that allowed the administrative state opportunity to exercise totalitarian powers. But the bureaucratic pieces did not act in much of a coordinate fashion. Ten years after that , the WEP and CCP picked up enough pieces off the gov't-finance-media gameboard to make their play for total control over the global order.

    Federal Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos says Canadians should expect to get a booster shot every nine months for the foreseeable future as the term “fully vaccinated” no longer makes sense.

    It was a draw. Mel stayed behind to allow the plane to take off with the cargo cult mostly.
    He took on Tina's "army of dune buggies" but was unhorsed.

    He's down on the ground,, she approaches him, with something like,, "Well, well, well, Raggedy Man,, see you around"
    Turns around and leaves with a laugh.

    The movie ends with the cargo cult re-occupying the skyscrapers,
    after a very long plane ride,,
    leaving lights on at night for Captain Walker so he can find his way back.

    You're going to need solar to light your house,, and an EV (which you will charge from your own power source) to get around.
    At least the traffic will be manageable.

    NO radiation here,, but no escaping the plague.

    Ontario's chief medical officer of health is set to make an announcement on Wednesday about access to fourth doses of COVID-19 vaccines and to free rapid antigen tests.Dr. Kieran Moore is scheduled to provide an update at 11 a.m. at Queen's Park.
    The Ontario government has been under pressure in recent weeks to expand age eligibility to the fourth shots and to extend distribution of the test kits beyond July 31.


    Ontario

    While the feds can set (some) directives, the provinces control healthcare - That is why/how Jason Kenny (Premier of the Canadian equivalent of Texas) threw Canadian conservatism under the bus with early openings and a crippling of the health care system there which eventually led to his resignation.

    It does not matter what the federal health minister says as they only send the checks - and have no power to stop the checks - to the provinces.

    OK, but now I'm very confused. Why did Canadian truckers stage that provinces-long convoy to Ontario to protest their government's anticovid mandates?

    I was weaned on Dudley Do-Right rescuing little Nell from sinister Snidley Whiplash (Quebecois?), but now I realize I definitely need a remedial course in Cannuck cause y'all's doings have gotten even stranger.

    They protested at the federal level upon a premise (shutdowns) that was a provincial responsibility. Every one understood that save for the truckers.

    There were some things that were a result of federal mandates (Masks on planes, border entry for truckers etc etc) but none of those mattered as there were countervailing requirements on the US side.

    e.g. Vaccination mandates for truckers did not mean s#it as no (Canadian) trucker could go into the US without a vaccination card - and over 90% of the truckers were vaccinated to make the trip already.

    Now I am all for a protest against Trudeau - But if they wanted to camp out on the lawn of the capitol or hold up some placards - thats fine. Not snarl the capitol for 3 weeks impeding legal movement of folks and making home owners lives horrible.

    Blocking the parliament for 3 weeks, pissing on the national war memorial, dancing on the tomb of the unknown soldier and harassing convenience store owners because (the city government) put mask mandates to enter their store.

    In general they came out looking like buffoons' to our majority who vote - Case in point Jason Kenny - resigned after shutdown mismanagement overwhelmed the hospital system and confidence in leadership - then Dougie Ford (Brother of our crack smoking Mayor of Toronto who died of Cancer) coasts to reelection after mismanaging wave 2, but held it together for wave 3 and 4.

    They are far fewer AOM (Angry Old Men) up here to have those groups have the impact they do down there.
