Good morning, everyone! Get your ISO suits on, because not only are we doing a deep dive into stupidity, we’re going into a highly infectious COVID-19 zone.
If you weren’t already aware of it, there’s been a frequent series of threads entitled “Flubros and flubras” aimed at COVID-19 deniers, even as the pandemic has slain Americans by the hundreds of thousands It follows the former guy’s dictum of :
Finally, after deciding that he’s beating a dead horse (another Freeper started a mocking series of posts entitled “The Butcher’s Bill (it’s just the flu, bro)“, the “Flubros and flubras” originator, “impimp” (insert your own joke here) is giving up, but is still a disbeliever.

It’s just the flu, bro.
There are a few TBD items with the Coronavirus: 1.Will they resume the lockdown in the fall/winter when flu season picks up? 2.Will there be a vaccine passport in any way? 3.When will laggards like churches, schools and hardcore blue states finally see the light?
I will post a Flubro thread if anything related to these items, or something else interesting pops up. But the daily thread is over now that the CDC has relaxed somewhat. It’s been great fun and I have enjoyed discussing Coronavirus items with Flubros and Flubras over the past 15 months. I like to think that we influenced many Freepers, who are, of course, more influential politically than the Illuminati. I also like to think that in some small way we made things better and freer here in America. Well done FRiends!
To: impimpThank you, impimp! You did a great job, day in and day out, to keep the FReeper FearPorn from infecting our brains.
“Freeper Fearporn” is the name of my next band.
It was a

TED NUGENT ON COVID-19 FIGHT: ‘I DIDN’T THINK I WAS GONNA MAKE IT’
UltimateClassicRock ^ | April 28, 2021
Posted on 4/29/2021, 1:56:38 PM by nickcarrawayTed Nugent has revealed that he feared for his life during his recent battle with COVID-19.”Five or six days ago, it was really bad. I didn’t think I was gonna make it,” the guitarist declared during a live webcast tonight. “I literally couldn’t function for about 20 hours… I’ve never been so scared in all my life.”He described his symptoms as a “six-foot-two, 225-pound headache, like nothing I have ever experienced. I mean, from the tip of my toes to the top of my hair I literally was dizzy and weak and struggled to get up to go to the bathroom.”Nugent then explained that a group of doctors came to his aid, with one even paying for a private plane to take him to a hospital. “They came from around the world, they go, ‘Uncle Ted we got the stuff, Uncle Ted don’t worry we got you covered, Uncle Ted we’re sending a plane and we’re taking you to the UT medical center and we got ya, man!’ I could literally cry, it was so powerful.”

I have been wondering about the second shot. It seems that’s when the side effects kick in.I just had my second shot yesterday.
My arm is more sore than it was the first time around. The first shot caused it to be tender to the touch; with the second shot, I felt pain like a bruise without touching it. It is slightly inflamed, as well. I feel a bit headachy and tired, so I took some Tylenol.
Apparently, what I am feeling is common for the second round of vaccine.
The side effects are not so bad that I would rather take my chances with catching Covid-19, being deathly ill for weeks, and risking long-term health effects or even death. What the shots mean is that I can get back to a relatively normal life. Although, to be honest, my life did not change a lot with the pandemic. Before, I only wore masks on rare occasions (if it wasn’t for work); now I wear them whenever I go out or am around non-family members.
To: Col Frank SladeOh, I’m sure that Nugent had the best of care. I hope that he is not one of the “long haulers,” someone who survives Covid-19 but has potentially permanent tissue damage in the lungs, heart, neurological system, or other organs.
It is far more preferable to take a vaccine, even one with some side effects, than it is to get sick. The side effects are a result of my immune system working to identify and overcome the threat. In a day or so, the side effects will subside, and my chances of catching Covid-19 will drop significantly in another week or so.
