    Not trying to shoot down socialism. You know I like Bernie, right?

    Regardless of whether if my understanding of socialism is right or wrong, I just want to have a better understanding of what’s going on.

    US response to this pandemic had been pretty pathetic from the start. However, why is it that other nations couldn’t replicate their own versions of operation warp speed? UK was it, with their AZ vaccine, right?

    As we reform our healthcare system, we just need to be careful not to get rid of this strength that we have...

    Also, I’m hoping there are still more vaccines in the development pipeline from rest of the world? Or they’ve pretty much given up on competing against giant US pharmas?

    Frankly I hate to see those progressive nations who’ve taken good care of its citizens up til now at the mercy of US for vaccines...

    I heard Taiwan is trying to develop their own vaccines. Hope they can be successful. If not, they’ll just have to wait patiently when US is ready to sell some...

    I suppose the problem with these countries is perhaps they couldn’t test their experimental vaccines because of lack of confirmed cases?

    Testing in the US was super easy...

    If the entire world were more progressive, we might be able to not let this virus to get this much out of control... so we might not need vaccines...

    Hope he will use his experience to tell the MAGA crowd and be able to convince them to take precautions?

    Or does it mean that once you have ‘rona, MAGA crowd would kick you out of the club because you’re too weak and too liberal?

    I feel awful today. Got my 2nd shot yesterday. I basically could not sleep last night. I am sore all over and have a throbbing headache. So sleepy, but I cannot sleep.

    Yeesh, I've heard of that being the day-after for some of the mRNA ones. The good news is that everyone I know that had a reaction like that had it go away by the next day. Here's hoping for you!

    Which shot did you get? Hope you feel better soon.

    My brother-in-law (wife's sister's husband) in India just tested positive. Really sucks. His wife is already vaccinated because she's a school teacher. Their 18-year-old son is also exhibiting symptoms, so he'll get checked as well. AFAIK they're doing perfectly fine. India's second wave is looking to be a very scary steep curve if you look at the graph. 200-300K daily. Based on that early trajectory I'd say they'll start seeing north of 500K cases per day soon. Maybe a million a day at the peak. Crazy numbers.

    Yeah, the numbers are scary!!! There's a lot of rebound in the numbers, we're going down for the most part in the US, and parts of Europe, but it's going up in the rest of the world. Brazil is not scary, it's horific.

    With such a densely populated nation, should be easy for it to spread...

    Anyway, hope you feel better soon Cam!

    I saw a Tiktok of people who had issues after their shot. One lady looked like she'd been in a fight. Another one had a bunch of seizures. Another had unending trembles. I stopped at that point.

    My early thoughts on the vaccines was that they had been rushed and I didn't want one until "we knew" what their effects would be. Every single medical professional I talked to said "get the first available vaccine." I don't second guess experts much in my life. So, I did my research on the vaccines and decided while i'd take any one, i'd prefer Pfizer.

    Seeing that video has made me rethink a lil bit, but i've already been jabbed.

    <edit> Seeing now, that most adverse reactions are suffered by females. Which just fits nicely with patriarchy and other bullshit.
