He’s almost certainly vaccinated. He’s a descipable grifter, but he’s not an idiot.

I’m still not sure what the fuss is about. A vaccine that the FDA seems to have the same formulation as the EUA vaccine has been approved. Tom’s text wall just seems like he is trying to cope with the reality that vaccines aren’t killing people.

I wonder if Tom takes the threat of Covid seriously. It's already killed more Americans in less than 2 years then every war and conflict and terrorist act over the last 120 years.

Everyone is going to get covid eventually. Even I'm resigned to that fact. Maybe not this year or next, but as sure as I get a cold, I'll get covid.

Tom will too. Will he ensure he's protected as much as able? Or will we see him on sorry antivaxxer.com?

What are you talking about? If they are counting people who died of motorcycle accidents, unrelated ailments, alcohol poisonings, and chronically ill people who were previously given a few weeks to live as Covid deaths like it says in those quotes then you are being lied to and your premise is based on a falsity. Can you agree that if the quotes are true then your world view is false?

You consistently ignore available statistics on excess deaths. There are also agencies that say deaths have been undercounted. I know it would soothe your troubled soul if over 600,000 Americans had not in fact died from COVID, but that’s simply not the world we live in.

Wow, it really feels like the Tom and Lackey are grasping at straws here. Comirnaty is the COVID vaccine that has been approved and is manufactured by Pfizer-Biontech. It’s indicated for vaccination against COVID-19. This is some serious mental gymnastics.

They approved a vaccine not available in the US. From the Senate letter:



This person claims to have surveyed clinics in Brookings, South Dakota. It wasn't availiable:

It says “not generally available” implying it’s available in some form. But hey if it’s not available in Brookings, South Dakota that MUST mean it hasn’t be approved. You know, approval and availability are totally the same thing. Like I said, some serious mental gymnastics going on.

Why is Total Lackey implying the Pfizer vaccine hasn't been approved?  Is this some Qanon talking point?

Even if the severe side effects for the vaccine are rare, some people have low immunity and bad health, fall into that risk area, and are being forced to endanger their health with an experimental vaccine.


The Pfizer Vaccine has been approved and has substantial data regarding it's safety and efficacy.  Experimental is a word you are using to politicize this.  Obviously no one wants anyone to suffer ill from taking the vaccine, but it's crucial to remember that every danger you can express about the vaccine is much more threatening if you contract the virus by orders of magnitude.

Yeah, the guy on the right is a tax lawer and the guy on the left is a Canadian litigator of some sort.
Seen videos from the bloke on the left before.
He spent months being wrong about the merit of all the cases Trump and his allies were filing. It’s nice to see he’s now turned his attention to (probably) being wrong about this.

To be fair, he’s probably just grifting people like Tom and Total Lackey for ad dollars.

He’s dishonoring the country by endorsing violence on 9/11. You should be ashamed of yourself for defending this monstrosity.

I don't see Boxing to be unethical. It's an Olympic sport that many are proud of, FYI. I can understand why you are afraid of it, however.

People fight with cushions on their hands, and sometimes even on their heads, depending on what the regulators think is appropriate. Don't worry.


I am not surprised that you think violence should committed for entertainment on the day commemorating 9/11.

Hey Tom..
What's the official word on why Trump not attending the memorial service and instead commenting on a fight is actually good for America and the fight against Terror?

Not sure why you think that he has to attend one certain function on the event but not another. He went to New York and spoke to the police and fire departments:

At least no one can accuse him of checking his watch, right?

It’s some serious doublethink to call people who are emphasizing a public health initiative sociopaths and the ones making a selfish choice empathetic.
Meh, you could reverse that argument by calling one group in favour of individual rights and freedoms, and the other group as clamping down on those freedoms. Mandatory/forced medical treatment has never been popular, and probably never will be.

I get that but sociopathic is a hilariously inept adjective to apply. Vaccines are already mandatory in a number of realms and Id bet 90% of the vaccine hesitant are vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, polio, tetanus, et. al. The hesitancy seems a perfect case study in human’s being closer to cavemen than we are comfortable with; a fight or flight playing out across an entire civilization.

But I don’t like the idea of those who choose not to being treated like second class citizens who can’t get certain jobs or travel or go to certain venues

This absurd dystopia is really seperating the empathatic/human from the callous/sociopath.  It is a test of principles that most are failing, willingly and with righteous indignation.

Lo and behold, could it be?

AATW is one of the good ones!

I had a hunch :)

All other factors being equal, vaccinated patients should get treated before unvaccinated people. That’s just basic triage.
Don’t your prioritise the people who are more ill (unless they have no chance of survival)? In which case shouldn’t it be the opposite?

So the important part is that I said “all other factors being equal”. Triaging isn’t just about treating who is the sickest, it’s also about what resources will provide the most benefit. This only applies to the most dire cases though.

I think people should get vaccinated but I’m finding this “two tier society” which is being created unsettling. I don’t think that is part of some “government plot”. People can, after all, choose to get vaccinated. But I don’t like the idea of those who choose not to being treated like second class citizens who can’t get certain jobs or travel or go to certain venues

If people wish to continue to make the choice to be a public health risk in the face of a safe, free and accessible solution, then it seems to be perfectly reasonable.

LMMFAO.

They can give me the shot of my choice when it comes time.

Some have suggested that those who refuse to get vaccinated should be refused medical treatment for covid.
At first it seemed like a pretty shitty viewpoint to me but now I'm starting to get it.  Why should we waste hospital beds on people like this?

The Taliban will be banning women from playing sport because people might see their face or body.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: New Users’ Posting Rights

I've seen some boards where there's an "introduce yourself" board, a person's first post has to be there before they are released in to the wild (that could happen automatically, or manual review).
A terrible idea. Instead of making a post asking the thing you want to ask, you now have to dox yourself in a community you know nothing about. You don't know what lurks here when you arrive. The last thing you want to do on a strange forum is start telling everyone else about yourself. Most people dip a toe into the forum. They ask about sunsets or link 100 things someone else thought of because it feels safe not giving anything away about yourself. And with some luck, Tom Bishop or Total Lackey or someone will interact with them, p*** them off and draw a conversation out of them. Welcome to tfes.org.

No. The introduce yourself thread, would be like the friendly chat thread where you just break the ice.

The profit margins on those drugs are almost certainly higher than the vaccine, but sure.
