VOICES: Stay home then

Every time I hear people demonstrating, trying to prove a point, or saying negative things, like the government is forcing people to take the vaccines, which to you all are bad, I feel that I just got whacked below the belt, and I just simply go berserk. You people rallied to try to open the government, but you just won’t do what they have asked of you, and what they feel are considered necessary to help and open the government. You all must understand that things do not work only one way, yours. It works both ways. If you want the government open, get vaccinated. Simple. And believe me, they are trying to open and make things the way they were before, or better.

Whether my opinion means anything or not, I’m sure to you negative people will be not, I feel that the actions of you all believing that the vaccines are bad and shouldn’t be taken, are indeed shameful, despicable, and a very stupid thing to say.

I sometimes wonder, no, really, more often, what kind of medications you people are taking, or what kinds of cigarettes you are/were smoking whenever you think that you are forced to take the vaccines, and that you believe or think that you are smarter than the CDC, doctors, and the scientists. Why not just follow the protocol and take the vaccination? It won’t harm you, and surely, it will make you feel better. Have you seen the news lately? The numbers rose. Those being affected were those who had not taken the vaccinations. Does this say or mean anything to you? Or are you just too stupid to accept and take the vaccinations?

No one is telling you that you MUST take the vaccination. I’m sure that what they were saying were simply suggestions to you all, the non-wanting-the vaccination people, and that your chances of getting the virus will be way less, than not, if you do. Maybe, nil. Those experts people who have been saying those things to try to persuade and have and to make senses for you to rethink and reconsider that the vaccinations are good, are, of course, and I’ll again repeat, are our government leaders, who took the recommendations from the scientists, doctors, CDC and every one else, who, I’m sure, are not dummies. They are people who have studied diseases, and they have the means to prove them. You are not one of them. You have the bull horn. That’s all.

Levanna Lomma and your three plus dozen people do not, and I repeat, do not need to take the vaccinations. Your choices. But stop making a production that the vaccinations are bad. Don’t take it. Be the ones getting caught with it, suffer, and probably die from it, if those are your choices.

You undoubtedly, in your bull-headed minds, will do whatever and however ways you feel, anyway, so what’s the fuss? And whatever anyone tells you what is the best for you all, will have no significance.

Let me just turn the situations around just a bit. You all said that the government, and those, as you said, are forcing you to take the vaccines, are infringing in your lifestyles. Hear me. By not taking the vaccines, you are in our lifestyles, too. You are doing more harms to us by not taking it, and you will certainly affect us somehow.

This is say to you all, stay home, be reclusive, don’t come out. Period!!

Demonstrate, hold the signs, and blame the government for all the wrongs you think they’ve done, but please, and I beg of you all, stay home, and don’t come out. You are going to kill us.

    Well said Ray Domingo. I did read your letter correctly. The most colorful of all. But to the point. Just because a person has taken the vaccine, no reason to kill anyone.

    You are correct Ray. Stay home and don’t kill anyone because you took the Moderna.

    Very nicely said.

    Fear not that which can kill the body. Fear the Lord who can kill body and soul. Indonesia is the current epicenter of the delta variant. That being said. You have a 99.5% chance of survival. Quit with the fear mongering already. Time to make yourself right with God. Repent! Confess your sins to Jesus and ask Him to save you. People willing to do anything to save their earthly life yet will forgo their eternal life due to ignorance , pride and a lack of humility.

    I don’t usually comment but this article is just too ridiculous not to. One could spend the better part of the day commenting on every brainwashed statement in this article but I just don’t have time for that…

    This comment is for the God fearing people still on Kauai who put their trust in God alone! Cling to our Lord! Repent! and prepare your hearts and minds for brutal persecution! If you are planning to go against society and not take the vaccine, you better be ready for what is coming to your doorstep. Or… Flee to the hills! (I’m sure all the Ray Domingos would feel so very happy and safe! Although probably only until his neighbor forgets to mow his grass)

    “Why not just follow the protocol and take the vaccination? It won’t harm you, and surely, it will make you feel better” hmmmm what does that remind you of??? “Surely, you will not die!” Sssskkkssskk

      As someone giving advice about asking Jesus to save our souls, apparently instead of being ‘ overly’ concerned about Covid19, perhaps you can tell us the explicit position of God the Father and Jesus Christ about COVID19… as a world wide plague,not as a call to repentance.

    Spoken like a true sheep and coward. Follow without question? Take an experimental injection from the government because the government and pharmaceutical companies have a perfect track record of safety and concern for human life? Your blatant, willful blindness is not just offensive, but horrifically dangerous, as history has made abundantly clear. This is Nuremburg 2.0 and you’re making yourself a perfect example of how tyrannical governments in the past have used naïve and cowardly men to thwart their evil plans.

      Literally hundreds of millions of people have taken the vaccinations. It is approved. What is experimental about it at this point?

      1. RevW July 18, 2021 8:47 pm Reply

        What still classifies the vaccines as “experimental” at this point is that they have haven’t gone through the standard FDA approval process. It is “approved” for immediate / temporary use under a different set of guidelines than the usual protracted approval process. The requisite longer term studies and documentation of how well they work or don’t work (and the side effects) take longer than we’ve had. Instead, we have what may be the largest study of a class of drugs ever, because we’re all drug trial subjects. The normal “control group” happens to be a bit different than usual, because it’s composed of a self selected population of people who refuse to use the vaccines instead of a control group that doesn’t know if they were vaccinated or not. In this ‘very very large’ study, that doesn’t make much difference, because an individual’s **knowledge** that they did or did not get vaccinated does not skew the results when the target of the drug is a virus. COVID is interacting biologically with the person’s immune system, not their mind.

        1. Guy July 20, 2021 1:31 pm Reply

          That is incorrect.

          All the vaccines have gone through clinical trials already.

          Honestly, why do you think you know better than the scientists?

    2. RevW July 18, 2021 9:15 pm Reply

      You seem to have Nuremberg codex conflated with 2021 conspiracy theory. Nuremberg codex has already excluded viruses as basically not the sort of experimentation N.C. addresses. Also, “tyrannical governments in the past have used naïve and cowardly men to thwart their evil plans” is sort of a nonsequitur … I just can’t imagine tyrannical government using naive cowards to thwart *their own* ‘evil’ plans – seems like a lot of unnecessary work compared to not starting ‘evil’ plans in the first place, especially using naive cowards, who are a notoriously unreliable class of minions.

    Hah. Taking medical advice and trusting your opinion is of the same level of insanity as Lavernas. Her not getting s vaccine doesn’t hurt you. Just as your choosing to get one doesn’t hurt her. It’s well documented the side effects and risks so far of said vaccine. The stupid part is thinking that s mass medical procedure without taking into consideration pre existing conditions that this vaccine can exacerbate. The only medical advice anyone should be giving is check with your doctor. Definitely not lovana or ray dimango

    Government boot-licking at it’s finest. Also full of self-contradictions and just plain drivel.
    BTW: perhaps you can explain how it is that unvaccinated people “…are going to kill us” if you have so much faith that the “vaccines” (they’re actually RNA manipulators) are effective. If you are vaccinated you’re protected, right? So why all the hand wringing over people choosing not to be injected? It’s their business if they are willing to take the imagined risk from an ailment with an average 99.6% survival rate.

      1. RG DeSoto July 18, 2021 3:43 pm Reply

        Sorry Ho…but you are one of those mid-level double digit IQ types. The so-called covid vaccines are not vaccines in the traditional sense. These three are RNA manipulators that illicit the production of spiked proteins. BTW the job of RNA molecules is to build proteins that are essential for cell growth and health. DNA on the other hand is the carrier of genetic codes. see below the next paragraph.
        Traditional vaccines are different than the covid formulations.. They are actual cells of the disease that are cultivated and subsequently either killed or reduced in virility. By injecting them into the body they provoke activation of killer T-cells and antibodies to the disease…that is how they protect.
        RNA functions; you can read all of it here:https://www.nature.com/scitable/topicpage/rna-functions-352/
        The central dogma of molecular biology suggests that DNA maintains the information to encode all of our proteins, and that three different types of RNA rather passively convert this code into polypeptides. Specifically, messenger RNA (mRNA) carries the protein blueprint from a cell’s DNA to its ribosomes, which are the “machines” that drive protein synthesis. Transfer RNA (tRNA) then carries the appropriate amino acids into the ribosome for inclusion in the new protein. Meanwhile, the ribosomes themselves consist largely of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) molecules.
        So crawl back in your hole and learn something, HO

          By definition, 100 is mid level, so not a double digit even if that were the case. But hey, you can be wrong about all you want! It’s a free country. (Despite all you claim to suffer.)

          It must be nice to move the goal posts with your own definition of “traditional” here. Leaving that off, it is a vaccine. It is defined as such by the FDA, the NIH, and any competent scientist you can find.

          You can’t even argue without personal attacks. I’ve never seen a purely positive post by you. Please seek the help you so desperately seem to need. We worry for you.

    If *you* are still afraid of COVID, *you* can get the vaccine, and then *you* will be almost completely safe from it (at least according to popular science).

    I desperately want to understand how in the same train of thought you proclaim that the vaccine is so effective that everyone shouldn’t even question being inoculated, then go on to end this piece stating that because someone else decided to either not take the vaccine at all or simply wait until there’s at least one long-term trial completed… that they are going to kill you, a person who is vaccinated.

    The hysteria really isn’t funny anymore. We have reached an absolute fever-pitch of mass psychosis not seen in recent memory. How, how can you possibly entertain both of these ideas simultaneously?

    Ray if you have had the vaccine you are at minimal risk so why are you so concerned? What is risky is the divisions you are creating and the possible violent reaction to fear you are spreading by saying, “You are going to kill us.”

This is a poor attempt at bullying and shaming to convince the ones of us that don’t blindly believe our masters to follow protocol. The moron who wrote this garbage probably gets all his news from CNN and social media. Hey genius , did you know social media is censoring negative side effects and main stream media is not reporting on deaths and negative side effects ?
      How about the fact that more then half of CDC, FDA , and NIH employees haven’t taken the vaccine according to their bosses at a senate hearing. Funny the top scientists and doctors won’t take the shot they are recommending we take.

    Ray, we have chosen to be the “control group”. Your group has chosen to be the “animal test group”. Time will tell who is right and who is wrong. Just remember that once you are “jabbed” there’s no going back. The spike proteins that were injected into your arm will change your RNA and possibly your DNA. The effects long term are totally unknown and you have chosen to be the guinea pigs for Big Pharma. The rest of us will wait and see how it all turns out. Personally, I like 99% favorable odds.

    These vaccines are completely safe.
    According to the VAERS reporting site at the CDC, there have only been a little over 9,000 deaths as of 7/9/21.

    And only 500,000 serious adverse reactions. 50% of which are serious lifelong debilitating conditions.

    I’ve taken every shot offered me.
    I just want to be safe.

    1. truthbeknown July 19, 2021 12:55 pm Reply

      Davie, I’m confused. Were you being sarcastic with your statement “there have only been a little over 9,000 deaths as of 7/9/21”? Conservative estimates of the VAERS report state that this represents less that 10% of the actual numbers. That means the actual number is probably over 100,000 deaths. Keep in mind that normally, during drug trials of a potential new drug, if there are more deaths than the control group, the potential new drug is dead in the water. Unless the FDA has been thoroughly corrupted, these COVID vaccines will never receive full approval due to the high death and injury rate.

    A few people have died from catching covid even after being fully vaccinated. They had either diabetes or high blood pressure. Look it up. So, Ray is right, a unvaccinated person can infect and kill a fully vaccinated person.

    If you want to go out safely, take the experimental injection.

    Support treatments. Support ICU facilities expansion. Protect children from experimental injections.
