    For consent (to be vaccinated) to be legally valid, the following elements must be present:

    It must be given by a person with legal capacity, and of sufficient intellectual capacity to understand the implications of receiving a vaccine.
    It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation.
    It must cover the specific procedure that is to be performed.
    It can only be given after the potential risks and benefits of the relevant vaccine, the risks of not having it, and any alternative options have been explained to the person.

    Spot on article (h/t American Thinker) re the glowbull warmening nonsense:

    A 1989 AP Report: Nations “Wiped Off Face of the Earth” by 2000 

    A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.

    Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of “eco-refugees,” threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.

    He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.”

    And so on. Many more examples of failed predictions.

    Facts? We don want your steenkin’ facts!

    Hey Steve, how is it going with sorting your relative who recently died’s affairs? Hope it is working out for the best.

    Here’s a clip that might explain a lot of references around today.  A beautiful song, but there are some very unpleasant stories about the crowd that the Mamas and the Papas hung around with. Very young girls were coming up to the Canyon (where they lived) and not being sent home.

    I spent some time in California at the end of the hippie era and can attest that it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. San Francisco was (apart from the climate) one of my top places to emigrate to, if the topic came up. The climate is better than most of Europe, but worse than most of Australia’s.

    ***********************************************

    The reverse is true. It’s been said many times, by me and others.

    The vaccines do not necessarily prevent COVID infection. They do protect those vaxxed from the serious effects of COVID infection, including possible death.

    So, vaxxed persons can infect unvaxxed persons. Those unvaxxed persons so infected are more likely to develop serious illness requiring hospitalisation, ventilation and possibly resulting in their deaths.

    I think initially it was generally believed it would be like a traditional vaccine, ie, stopped a person getting the disease.

    Not that they could still easily get a mild version.  It’s a whole new ball game.   I don’t think anyone maybe apart from the pharmaceutical companies knew that and they have sold it as a cure-all solution to governments.   Who even thought there would be required boosters every six months or so.

    It was simply get a vaccine, everyone safe.

    Yes Candy, you are right.

    A vaccine prevents illness.

    Panadol reduces the symptoms as well.

     

    Here we have, in grigs, a prime example of a left wing moron who has been told a vaccine is still a vaccine even when it isn’t a vaccine and just parrots the line….the propaganda.

    However, since you apparently can catch covid and have mild symptoms, severe symptoms or be asymptomatic completely, without vaccination, Grigster, tell me , oh follower of the laughed wing sciences, how they can possibly tell the difference between your unvaccinated symptoms to your vaccinated symptoms.

     

     

    Let me tell you this Grigsy.

    You have a mental illness because you think lefty.

    That means you think in numbers and percentages, and as if individuals were non existent.

    You put people in boxes, so you would answer…..yeah they tell us (you believe anything fed to you) that people are coming in with less severe symptoms and there are less deaths….

    Now this is where your brain will start to hurt.

    Variants of original colds are always less severe.

    But if you believe someone who can in no way prove that the vaccines reduce symptoms because they have also said unvaccinated  get varying degrees of covid, right down to being asymptomatic, would you not question your own sanity?

    I’d call you at the very least, a gullible twat.

    The opening statements this morning by ICACs Counsel Assisting were aimed at that sentiment – and right on target.

    the major point is that ……….

    ” somehow the World Economic Forum knows of a process for testing blood to see if the vaccine is present?

    Think about that.

    Let’s call whatever is in your blood system a “marker“, because generically we do not know what they would specifically be looking for to isolate blood as vaccinated -vs- non vaccinated.  They are looking for something, so let’s call that a marker.  That means the following points are evident:

    Whatever that marker is, has to be present in all versions of the vaccine.
    Whatever that marker is, has to be present permanently.
    Whatever that marker is, was known by the World Economic Forum to exist prior to this proposal. ”
