If you’re anything like me, prior to any major, potentially life altering decision you seek as much information possible to best adjudicate the risks vs rewards. Americans like to exclaim “my body my choice”, and while I fully echo that sentiment, I wonder how well equipped we are to handle some of the most precarious medical dilemmas. I embarked in my research concerning the various experimental, prophylactic pharmaceuticals currently available, in the hopes of finding clear concise delineations between risks, efficacy, and benefits concerning each of them vs taking none at all. Much to my chagrin, the tremendous opacity I faced, rendered me far more questions than answers! Since I lack the answers, I hoped to lay out for you, I will instead share a fraction of the questions that plague me. For the purposes of this article my focus will adhere to the three covid related injections currently offered in the United States.
Bruce Jenner, known as Caitlyn Jenner since 2014 (1), is considering running for Governor (2) of California in the upcoming election, due to the Gavin Newsom Recall (3). In a 2015 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, Jenner revealed that he is a coservative in the realm of politics and that he has considered himself a Republican his entire life. (4) When Jenner spoke up about his struggle (5) with Gender Dysphoria (6), he was immediately made into this sort of icon for the LGBTQ+ community.

“The last thing we need to do is turn the Supreme Court into just a political football, whoever has the most votes gets whatever they want.”- President Joseph R.

Good Ol’ Dominion voting. What are they up to now? Well let’s see; Fox News is being sued for defamation by Dominion for $1.6 billion dollars after some in the company pushed the so-called ‘conspiracy theory’ that Dominion rigged the 2020 presidential election, naming Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Jeanine Pirro as defendants.(1) Sadly, Fox News has pulled back from many of these claims as a result as far back as December of 2020, and they are not alone in that move. Newsmax has also pulled any content referring to the 2020 election as being a stolen election,(2) as has One America News Network (OANN).(3) They are also suing attorney Sidney Powell,(4) and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for $1.3 billion each,(5) MyPillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell, who is also launching a new social media platform called Frank,(6) for an additional $1.3 billion, and threatening to go after anyone else who seeks to spread these ‘conspiracy theories.’(7)
