# Ethiopia is at war

With itself and the Nobel Peace prize winner prime minister is dropping bombs the way Obama released drones to wherever he thought there were terrorists lurking. Any bystander death was collateral damage for the greater good.

Some country in the old soviet Union is at war too.

Everywhere there is war or rumours of a war. Can’t we choose our struggles wisely. Maybe deal with the pandemic before we start killing one another for territory.

I saw in the news there is a vaccine that is 90% effective. While I am no doctor, I am a little clever. All the known Coronaviruses that attack us mutates so fast you will need a vaccine every year. And while we have been told how effective, we don’t as yet know what would be the side effects of this vaccine. I hope they don’t try it on Africans first. The history of botched vaccination on the continent reads like a horror story.

Have a peaceful day, won’t you!

1. I’m surprised we’ve survived this long with so many ways to kill us off.

They stopped the roll out of a vaccine in Brazil apparently because of a serious adverse reaction.

Wait! Are you saying you don’t trust Bill Gates mega-pharmaceutical-funded vaccines?

C’mon man! Have some faith. I’m sure they’ll be just as safe, efficient and reliable as his operating system. Plus they come backed with a lifetime’s worth of security updates (for a nominal fee, of course). 🙂

There are many reasons why I abandoned Windows way back in, 2008. Reliabilty, efficiency, and price were perhaps the most significant factors. I’m not having any vaccination that is comparable to Windows in those factors.

Hahah Barry. In fact for your age group, it might not be a good idea to get the vaccine at all.

You might be right. Especially so here in Aotearoa New Zealand while our borders remain closed. Life is almost normal – apart from optionally scanning a QR code when entering commercial premises. Many businesses are booming as we’re spending money in NZ instead of travelling oveeseas to spend it. As travelling to anywhere fron NZ is expensive thats a lot of money sloshing about.

Here the vaccine, when it arrives, will be given first to those who are most likely to to spread the virus – health workers, and those involved in border protection and at quarantine facilities. I doubt we’ll be in line for a jab until 2022 at the earliest.

BTW with the borders closed, we havent had a flu season here, and most communicative illnesses are way down on seasonal averages. So I’m happy to keep the status quo for the foreseeable future.

We generally don’t have a flu season here or I don’t watch the news.
I wouldn’t want to get the vaccine even if it showed up here tomorrow.

My comment was written somewhat tongue-in-cheek, because I’m largely OS neutral. I run both GNU/Linux and Windows 10, and consider both operating systems to be quite stable and reliable once properly configured.

As long as the OS does what I want it to do, I don’t give it so much thought. I am not too tech savvy to fiddle with it much. But I should try Linux and see

I am working on a post on vaccines, and specifically clinical trials. When they say the COVID19 vaccine is 90% it is a trick as the wicked do. This is phase one of the trial that excludes people with common conditions such as asthma, high blood pressure, and heart issues. Also, there are only 10% of Blacks in the study though Black a\over 50 of the COVID19 deaths. Most vaccine trials DO NOT include Blacks in proportion to how they suffer from the illness that they are trying to treat. I guess those in the excluded and ill-represented groups will be tested on the drugs and vaccines when they are actually taking it in the general public. PLEASE READ THESE PUBLISHED STUDIES AND NOT JUST ACCEPTING WHAT IS PROPAGATED IN THE MEDIA.

But I am also skeptical of reflexive skepticism and the Blame Game, especially when it devolves into the kind of conspiracy mongering promulgated by our very own Ron in the elections thread. (He ignores, of course, the documented and real attempt to reduce voter turnout through gerrymandering, post office shut downs, closure of polling places, and a drum beat of propaganda against mail voting. Like many Republicans, Ron is mad that it appears to have not worked effectively this time)

On the first point, you and I are agreed. That Ron insists the vote fraud is widespread without sufficient evidence is a bit disturbing. I saw the trump campaign is reviewing the case filed in Penn. Looks like evidence has been hard to come by.

• HEY!!!! There’s PLENTY of evidence!! WTF is wrong with you??!! Get yer head outta yer arse ‘n watch REAL news!!! Ya’ know, news that confirms what Trump and the useless, dickless, motherless fucks who support him follow! Once you do that, you’ll be gladly on your way to a new reality, a new life, and a brain hemorrhage. Well, gotta run! I’m off to eat up some republican babies with Kamala Harris and help her plan the next big election rig in the Georgia senate race against God’s chosen republicans. God bless America!! God bless alternate facts, and God bless the dickless, motherless whores who support Trump! $Amen$

Faux news don’t reach us.
Two weeks on trump still holds onto the thought he won the election and it is being stolen from him.
On this side of the nation, the incumbent has all the advantages going into an election. The same as trump had. He appointed a post master General with one job only, frustrate mail in ballots. It seems that this strategy failed terribly.
