Our skepticism of big pharma is typically not about the efficacy of their medicine but the equity of their business practices.
Does big pharma downplay safety risks in its products? Absolutely. Is that any different than any other product manufacturer in this county? Not at all. That's the price of their precious deregulation.
Yes, the FDA is toothless. Yes, there is too much risk across the board. But given the global scrutiny, I see more risk in starting a new allergy medicine or boner pill than this vaccine. The idea that anti-vax is about fundamental safety skepticism of our medicine is laughable.
Or maybe this is about microchips or depopulation or whatever, in which case Peterson has lost his final thread.
I say this all the time about the fire department but all I’ve accomplished is being banned from Red Lobster.
I suppose as a socialist that if the fire department was privatized and began price gouging I’d have to stop calling them.

Cleaning out my old Twitter folder and I'm going to make a thread of what I find. I'll start with one of my favorite tweets, a real gem from @UweBollocks.
Next we have the guy who started a Nazi micronation in his backyard based on Bitcoin. He managed to get me temporarily banned from this website when I answered his poll by saying I would fill his house with bees.
Do you remember when infamous Antifa leader Mohammed Markstein announced plans to execute all Trump voters on November 4th, 2017? Thank god they stopped him.

It needs to be LOUDLY emphasized that this is a lie. Wind and solar power actually overperformed expected winter capacity in Texas. The state was crippled by frozen coal and gas plants, knocking out over 30 gigawatts of power. Sources below.
