Election Flyers

Interesting thing about this years election flyers. For the Georgia Senatee run-offs, we’re getting dozens of pro-Republican flyers. But only ONE pro-Democrat flyers. Period. It’s almost as if the Dems know that they no more need to campaign for the run-off, than Biden needed to campaign for Prez. As if the fix is in.

Again.

But today, I did get a very interesting flyer from the Club for Growth, a generally fiscally-conservative outfit; i.e.- Republican.

“While WHO you vote for is always kept private, whether or not you vote is a public record.

“And after the runoff election on January 5th in Georgia, researchers will look up who chose to vote in the runoff and who did not.

“This is a subject notice that your individual voting record may be accessed and studied following the election.”


The Republicans are very concerned about people — like me — saying we aren’t going to bother voting, since the same people who stole the Prez race are still in place, with the same techniques and systems.

My area is pretty solidly not-Democrat. So this flyer looks very much like a veiled threat to dox me — and other non-voters — if I do sit out the run-offs.

Yeah, this shit really makes me want to go out and support Republicans.

How fast would the truck have to be going?

I see this old video is making the rounds again.


Link

Fake, of course. It was part of an ad campaign back in 2011.

But it is amusing. And I got to thinking about how fast the truck would have to go to actually do that. Any pilots around here?

I figure that’s a 727-200, and it was supposed to have had a fairly full cabin. I’ll make a non-pilot’s SWAG that it would be landing at around 130 knots. So the truck would have to be doing about 150 MPH.

Yeah, I’d like to have a truck that could do that.

I’ve been microaggressed my whole life

And I never even knew it.

Names like Mindy Kaling’s kids’ are often a result of parents always hearing theirs mispronounced
The decision to change one’s name to better assimilate in America can be based in experiences of name-based microaggressions, defined as name mispronunciations, renaming practices and the diminishment of names of ethnic and religious origin based in majority ethnic figures’ either conscious or subconscious beliefs that non-American names are an inconvenience within Western society.

Nobody outside of the family pronounces my surname correctly the first time; and often not the second, third, fourth… yadda yadda. It’s a German name, but even in Germany no one got it right because it comes from a very old regional dialect.

Other than the childish slurs in elementary school, I never sweated that. I used it. If I met someone I wanted to get to get along with, I used the difficulty with my name as an excuse to get on a first name basis immediately.

If the person was an asshole, or I needed leverage over them, I’d insist on them saying, “Mr. Bussjaeger,” and flatly correcting their mispronunciations over and over.

But now I see the light. It was all microaggressions the whole, not merely difficulties with an unfamiliar word/name.

I demand reparations.

[Updated 2] About that Pfizer mRNA ChinCOVID vaccine

(see update below)

…and why I won’t take it. Or the Moderna version.

Last month, I gave my reasoning, but it was in a private, members-only forum. But I think my comments should be preserved for public posterity.

I’m leery of being an early recipient of a newly developed viral protein coat vaccine, because sometime flaws occur when they scale up production from testing to inoculating a nation. But this…

Instead of injecting a known quantity of a known protein to stimulate an immune response, this tricks the body’s cells into mass producing the proteins. How much? Who knows. It’ll vary widely from individual to individual. Delayed –for days or weeks — anaphylactic shock is a possibility. And that’s if the vaccine is right.

If something bad happens with the nucleotides, that vaccine could potentially tell your body to produce an outright toxic protein. I suspect one of the things the manufacturers like is that this is probably “manufactured” through PCR. They are going to have to be damned careful to avoid any contaminant, any stray RNA, because if the slightest bit of a potentially lethally coding strand gets in there, PCR will happily amplify that, along with the vaccine.

To clarify further: Conventional vaccines like the seasonal flu vaccines use the protein coat of the virus, but without the interior RNA that makes a virus work. So a known amount of a foreign protein is injected, and the body’s immune system sees the protein, recognizes it as foreign, and produces antibodies against that protein. So when/if the actual virus shows up, your body already knows how to recognize it and produce the proper antibodies. And the immune system stores the memory of the antibody for future use, which is why, if you had the smallpox vaccination as a kid, you’re still good to go years later.

The Pfizer/Moderna vaccines don’t use the protein coat. They use messenger RNA. mRNA is the mechanism inside the cell that transfers information from the DNA — about what protein to build — to the ribosomes, which are the “protein factories.”

The mRNA vaccines are custom-built mRNA pre-programmed for viral coat proteins. It enters cells and “hijacks” the ribosomes to trick your body into producing foreign proteins that look like the viral coat. So instead of introducing a known quantity of a foreign protein into the body, the body will start manufacturing foreign proteins in mass quantity.

Allergic reactions are the body reacting to foreign proteins. Anaphylactic shock — potentially deadly if untreated — is the body over-reacting to foreign proteins, or to large quantities of such.

Moving from test trials to mass inoculation, I fear we’ll see a lot of variation in individuals regarding how much proteins are produced. I’m not going to be a bit surprised if we don’t see some people going into anaphylactic shock days — maybe even weeks — after being vaccinated.

Another potential issue is protein coding errors. It would be real shame if you got your shot late in the day when the vaccine — which has to be shipped in dry ice so as to not degrade — has warmed up, and it turned out the degradation caused the mRNA to start coding errors and producing a lethal protein.

YMMV, but I think mRNA vaccines needed a lot more testing before going to mass human use. It’s a neat idea in theory, but I’m not sure enough that it’s ready for primetime to take it.

Added, 12/9: Well, well.

People who suffer ‘significant’ allergic reactions told not to take new Covid-19 vaccine
UK regulators have issued a warning that people who have a history of “significant” allergic reactions should not currently receive the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine.

The warning comes after two NHS staff members who received the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine suffered an allergic reaction, the NHS in England has confirmed.

Added, 12/17: And now that vaccination just started in the US…

It begins.

Kurt Schlichter Is An IDIOT

He demands everyone go vote Republican in the Georgia run-offs.

Not Voting For The Republican Senate Candidates In Georgia Is Stupid
If you are boycott-curious, let me be clear: I don’t care if you are frustrated or upset. Not at all. Grow up. Man up. And win this run-off outside the margin of fraud.

Yeah. “And win this run-off outside the margin of fraud.”

He apparently has no fucking clue what happened. Let me put it in simple terms for the moron:

1. We voted.
2. The counting started.
3. Metro Atlanta counties stopped and watched every other county’s results.
4. Everyone else finished.
5. Metro Atlanta counties saw how many votes they needed for Biden Harris to win and produced them.

You can’t beat the margin of fraud, when the margin is generated after you’ve voted, dumbass.

You can’t beat the margin of fraud when the election officials won’t even look at the fraud.

They won’t look at the fraud because the Secretary of State helped them do it be agreeing to violate state election laws.

The Secretary of State is actively trying to prevent anyone else from looking at the fraud by telling all counties to wipe their machines.

Fuck you, Schichter. I’m not boycotting the run-offs to ” punish the Democrats”.” I’m not voting because it’s fucking pointless.

“We’ve never found systemic fraud, not enough to overturn the election.”

That was Georgia’s Secretary of State Raffensperger. Well, you can’t really see what you refuse to look at.

Back in my Air Force days, I was a telecom tech. A great deal of my time was spent proactively looking for problems, and fixing them before the impact became noticeable; what we called preventive maintenance inspections. We didn’t wait for alarms to go off. And when they did go off, the response was to find what caused it, and fix it.

Raffensperger signed a consent decree with the Dimwit Party agreeing to violate state election laws. Those violations were a large part of what enabled mass dumps of mystery ballots and improper mail-in ballots.

If Raffensperger was an Air Force tech, he’d wander around the radio site disabling all the station alarms, and blow off maintenance.

Come to think of it, there was a tech in Greece who did just that back in the ’80s. He was relieved of duty and, as I heard it, thrown out of the Air Force, when his antics caused the site to go off the air (a bad thing, since that basically comm-isolated an entire Air Base).

Well, Secretary of Scum Raffensperger just knocked the Georgia election system offline and vote-isolated an entire state.

ChinCOVID in the wild in the US last year

I’ve maintained for months that ChinCOVID was in the US far earlier than the official general “wisdom,” and that the call for social distancing et al came far too late to doing any good.

We know from testing that people across the country had already developed ChinCOVID-specific antibodies by March, 2020.

Then the CDC decided that it was in the US by late January. But antibody testing in Ohio had already shown positives in in early January. And when they went back to check on a Washington state woman who had been hospitalized with what they retroactively recognized as ChinCOVID-type symptoms… Yep, positive for SARS-CoV-2 type antibodies. And that had to be community spread because she hadn’t traveled.

And now we have this:

Does This Study Shift the Covid-19 Narrative About When the Virus Was in the US?
“This study aimed to determine when the virus might have first appeared in the United States by using archived samples from routine blood donations collected by the Red Cross. The non-identifiable blood samples used in the study—from donors in nine states between Dec. 13, 2019 and Jan. 17, 2020.”

In the study of the blood samples, Covid-19 antibodies were detected in 84 donors on the west coast from Washington, Oregon, and California as early as December 13. Other samples were from donations made between late December to mid-January from six other states showing the antibodies — Iowa, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin. The key aspect is these were not showing positive viral activity but the presence of the anti-SARS CoV-2 antibodies, the virus causing Covid-19.

Seven to fourteen days to develop antibodies means these “cases” dated to no later than early December. And probably much earlier, if the people were at all symptomatic, because last time I donated, they wouldn’t accept blood from someone who was sick. But I’m no longer eligible to donate blood, so maybe that changed.

And please note the geographical distribution of those people: coast to coast. By December, ChinCOVID was everywhere. Very likely anyone who was sick was simply diagnosed as a cold or flu.

Voter Integrity Project: Findings and Conclusions… Wait… WHAT?

The Voter Integrity Project: Findings and Conclusions is a video reporting the results of a massive analysis of absentee voting; they compared absentee balloting to Change Of Address records and out-of-state voter registration. They found more than enough invalid votes to wipe out Biden’s margin. But…

Morbidly amusing is the “Georgia and Pennsylvania Invalid Residential Addresses” analysis at the 29:14 mark.

Those are in my little town. Those “residential” addresses are our Post Office.

OK, who had “Zombie Mink in 2020”?

Thousands of mink culled over COVID fears rise from a mass grave in Denmark
A rushed cull of Denmark’s mink over concerns about a coronavirus mutation has left the country facing a new horror, as cadavers of the animals re-emerge from the earth.

[UPDATED] Action Alert: Active Duty Military

Do I have any active duty military readers?

Attorney Lin Wood is looking for someone who cast a Military Absentee Ballot in Georgia. You can reach him at lwood@fightback.law.

Added, 11/28/2020 And this is why he wants to talk to them. I figured it would something this.

ANOTHER FUN FRAUD FACT: All 900 Military Ballots in Fulton County, Georgia Went to Sleepy Joe Biden — NOT A CHANCE IN HELL!

OK, my active service time was quite a while back, but this seems pretty danged unlikely.
