I have far more fear of the government power grab than the virus.

Miles behind. The BA3 variant is already evident and will very soon take over just as BA.2 became 100% of cases in places like Denmark.
Anyone believing the PR crap that any of the trial vaccines work in any way is delusional. The S Protein is a complex mutation of previous variants & between each notable variant there's several sequences. Even if the mRNA vaccines were safe and easy to alter they haven't yet made one that's successful against any SARS virus including Covid-19 and they aren't going to, any more than they'll cure the common cold.. which right now is nastier than the latest variant of Covid.
should we be afraid of the bug or nuclear war? The govt needs to tell me what to fear

@finding Your Retirement . Everything, the Govt want us to fear Everything. As 90% of the public are poorly educated & easily afeared, that's enough.
WTF? I thought Covid was over.

@cdraughon . It's only over medically and scientifically. It'll never be over politically as a scam & tool towards a Totalitarian wet dream.
CDC lost all credibility months ago

@Golfsohard . They did tell us in July that their trial data showed the V'd caught & spread Covid-19 the same as the unV'd. In fact slightly easier and with a slightly higher viral load. Trouble is it wasn't covered by the MSM even though the CDC made the report availablein the publicdomain.
( in their WMMR from July)
