Polls: Americans don't care about COVID and the vaccines anymore

This essay is about the fact that if you still feel that COVID and the vaccines are an important issue, then you aren't just in the minority. Your chosen minority is so small that it is statistically insignificant.
And that isn't my opinion.

For instance, Gallup:

Covid Chernobyl

I was watching Chernobyl for like the 4th time (it is such a great show) and it occurred to me how similar the original reaction to the disaster was to COVID.

"It's just a cold."
= "It's just like a chest xray."

"It's only dangerous to old people and people with pre-existing conditions."
= "Everything is under control. There's no reason to evict people living around nuclear reactor."

Another Dose?

What, they're asking Questions?


Finally some officials are asking questions about the pandemic response and vaccine mandates. Unfortunately not in the US (perhaps Rand Paul and Ron Johnson?), but recently in Europe. I've also got a good vaccine media spin clip for those interested. The excess deaths are getting a little play, but really very little play considering the hysteria over COVID deaths. How much have you heard? So below the graphs and the fold are EU and UK politicians asking the right questions, and a good story of BBC vaccine spin.

This week the G7 and NATO met trying to plot China and Russia's demise. It is almost comical. Russia's special op in Ukraine continues in a relentless grind. The western economies continue to inflate...when will they pop? The court has been wreaking havoc throwing Roe back to the states and eliminating the power of the EPA to regulate power plant emissions. In the midst of all this it is no wonder COVID has dropped off the radar, but it is still with us...mainly variants BA4 and BA5 which are immune escaped meaning they infect vaxed and previously infected people.
