I have a category for stupid marketing tricks I like to call “The Whopper Beat the Big Mac.” It’s when someone produces a result based on a rigged scenario. A jig that’s up. Like a dictator getting 99.9% of the vote again! but with food, or how about Pfizer?
Ironically the Whopper scenario involved Burker King advertising how a large percentage of “people” preferred their burger over a Big Mac. In small type, it reads, among people who preferred Burger King (or something very similar). It might just as well have said among people who rarely or never eat at McDonald’s.
Or, how about among people who hate the Big Mac?
Speaking of whoppers, here comes Pfizer (the pharmaceutical folks) with some research that NPR, another willing patsy, can’t but report.
New clinical trials showed that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine elicits “100% efficacy and robust antibody responses” in adolescents from 12 to 15 years old, the drug company announced Wednesday. The trial included 2,260 participants; the results are even better than earlier responses from participants ages 16 to 25.
Oh, my God! That’s such great news except for the fact absent a serious comorbidity, 100% of people under 20 have nothing to fear from COVID19. Probably for lots of reasons, including(probably) a predisposition to produce their own antibodies.
We’ve known for many months that children who come in contact carry little or no viral load. They never needed distancing or masks, even if those things did what they claim (and they don’t). They did not need to learn remotely.
They don’t need your experimental vaccine.
In New Hampshire, as evidence, only 000.18% of everyone under 20 who “tested positive” had to visit the hospital, and no one under 20 died after an entire year. Zero. That means 100% survivability in the adolescent 12-15-year-old age group Pfizer is gloating over and almost no chance of serious illness.
The Whopper Beat the Big Mac.
Currently, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is authorized for use only in people who are at least 16. The companies, which developed the vaccine together, are working to test it in children as young as 6 months. In the first part of that study, a group of kids from 5 to 11 years old got their first shots last week. A second group, ages 2 to 5, are slated to receive their first doses next week.
In the investment world, you’d call it churning. How is this not medical malpractice?
Does Pfizer have a parallel program that will funnel trillions in tax dollars to build bicycles for fish and to put tits on bulls?
They don’t need them either, but if we must insist on government/insurance/pharma churning, can we not pump unnecessary experimental gene therapy drugs into our kids.
It’s a small ask.
