Actually, I am and its all related since medical school prices reflect the expectation that physicians will make higher than average salaries.

There are creative ways to become a physician withOUT crippling debt even when the average tuition ranges from $32,000 to $62,000 a year. Or, you can go to one of the medical schools with the lowest costs (as low as $18,000 a year)

You can certainly become a certified teacher or nurse without spending hundreds of thousands of dollars (or tens of thousands for that matter) by attending an in-state school and living like a college student, and not someone using student loans to act like a trust fund baby.

Boom! I knew my alma mater would be in there. UNM is one of the most underrated universities in the country. I'd pit their mathematics, physics, engineering, geology, music and theater programs against the more famous schools any day. The head of the orthopedics department personally put my left wrist back together after I shattered it in a bicycling accident. He did a brilliant job.

Got my first shot on Monday of the Pfizer. Apart from a slightly sore arm (I did a workout the same night so I'm sure the overhead shoulder press had something to do with it), no side effects to report.

Werenít you just criticizing the ability to trust in science and the lining of pockets? Hopefully you can understand how I might see the incongruity in that stance and posting that link.

I don't trust it. That's why I was asking for an explanation. He's not a scientist, just reporting on the "facts".

Not everything deserves an explanation, especially when the content comes from a cesspool like BitChute. The problem with arguing with conspiracy theorists is that there is no changing their mind. Flat Earthers, for instance, canít be proven wrong in their eyes because all evidence refuting their theories is fake. Anyone trying to present evidence against their theory is clearly apart of the deep state. The logic is very circular. Just saying. Iím trying to identify and ignore these right wing crazies. Like an addict, they need to hit rock bottom, wake themselves up and snap out of their quackery.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitChute

Quote:
BitChute is a video hosting service known for accommodating far-right individuals and conspiracy theorists, and for hosting hateful material.[a][b] The platform was created in 2017 to allow video uploaders to avoid content rules enforcement on YouTube,[13] and some creators who have been banned from YouTube or had their channels barred from receiving advertising revenue ("demonetized") have migrated to BitChute.

Since launching, BitChute has accommodated far-right groups and individuals.[a] The Southern Poverty Law Center wrote in 2019 that the site hosts "hate-fueled material", and the Anti-Defamation League wrote in 2020 that "BitChute has become a hotbed for violent, conspiratorial and hate-filled video propaganda, and a recruiting ground for extremists".[10][11] According to a report from anti-extremism group Hope not Hate in 2020, BitChute "actively promotes" content which was removed from other platforms as hate speech. Hope not Hate also documented videos hosted on BitChute supporting or produced by terrorists groups, including ISIS and the neo-Nazi groups National Action and Atomwaffen Division.[6][12] A report from British Jewish group Community Security Trust says that some terrorist videos have been on the site for over a year, and that BitChute only removes this content when forced to.[7][22] One academic analysis found that BitChute had more hate speech than Gab, but less than 4chan. It found that only a small group of channels on the network had any meaningful engagement, almost all of which pushed conspiracy- and hate-laden content.[23]

The far-right conspiracy theory channel InfoWars migrated to BitChute after being banned by YouTube.[2] Prominent far-right and alt-right video creators who have cross-posted to both YouTube and BitChute include Lauren Southern, Stefan Molyneux, Millennial Woes, and Paul Joseph Watson.[1][3]

The platform also hosts misinformation related to the COVID-19 pandemic.[6] The conspiracy theory video Plandemic has been has been viewed on BitChute millions of times after having been removed from other platforms for spreading medically harmful misinformation.[24][25][12]

BitChute is part of a group of "alt-tech" websites that position themselves as less strictly-moderated alternatives to mainstream social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.[5][9] Deen Freelon and colleagues writing in Science characterized BitChute as among the alt-tech sites that are "dedicated to right-wing communities", and listed the site along with 4chan, 8chan, Parler, and Gab. They noted there are also more ideologically neutral alt-tech platforms, such as Discord and Telegram.[9]

I watched about 2 minutes of some ABC Florida channel report. Not the strongest start to state facts. Be that as it may, there was a similar sequence of reproductive gene and the capsid. That isnít much. The covid genome is pretty big at ~30k nt so having something similar isnít much.

Vacci-Nation

My problem with the vaccine as a soldier is the Gulf War syndrome. For all you young folks out there, when the military decided to invade Iraq in the early 90ís, allot of soldiers were vaccinated with unproven vaccines and experimental vaccines to protect against biological attacks. After returning from the war, soldiers were making babies. A lot of the babies had developmental issues to include mental retardation, deformed appendages, and so forth. There was a big law suit. Some of the soldiers medical records were wiped out clean to hide the traces.

Currently in the Army, i canít speak for other branches, the vaccine is optional. They even make you sign paperwork before the vaccine. Currently the trend right now for vaccinated soldiers are senior leadership. Junior soldiers are less likely to get the vaccination.

So until itís fda approved and the Army makes it mandatory, Iím going to pass on this one. Who knows, i am legend just might be true.
