Thread Name: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
I believe we are all biased to negative news. This is compounded by a confusion between evolving research, actual data and the fears and conspiracy speculations of the insane or those with a political agenda.
The Martin Gibson's in society, whacko people with a MD after their name and narcicists go to great lengths to give the illusion of points of view and bogus authority that can beguile even highly intelligent people to believe that the negative news is larger than it is. People I know actually begin to think in terms "if all those doctors say...then it must be true". This week the conspiracy crowd has surpassed all of its previous damaging rhetoric. It is so perverse, not even I will repeat it.

Life, liberty and happiness. If you don't have life you can't have liberty, if you can't have liberty you can't have happiness. Save your life by staying alive with vaccines.

So its time to get the flu shot again, get it, and get it early.
Its actually less reliable than Covid vaccines but more likely to help you than facebook. imo
And don't forget the good news is much larger than you can even imagine despite the bias to nocticing bad news.
