No, Americans are not going to cancel their family Christmas celebrations again.

And no, I do not accept that “There comes a time when you do have to give up what you consider your individual right of making your own decision for the greater good of society.”

Instead of trying to take away our rights and browbeat us into canceling Christmas again, maybe he could devote a little time to finally “having that discussion” he said we might need to have sometime about natural immunity, a topic the government is studiously ignoring. The growing pile of evidence would indicate the time is ripe, and here’s the latest:

In a premium story, the Epoch Times reports that the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare studied 1,292 subjects and found that a full year after infection, 89% of those with prior COVID infections still carried virus-neutralizing antibodies and 36% still had a type of antibody called nucleoprotein IgG. Antibody levels were 2 to 7 times higher in those who’d had severe infections than those who had mild cases.

While these subjects had long-lasting antibodies against the original strain of COVID, the reduction in neutralization efficiency was “considerably declined” for the Beta variant and “only slightly reduced” against the Alpha variant. But 80% still had immune protection against the Delta variant, which is the dominant strain in the United States.

Of course, antibody levels are only part of the story, since they naturally decline over time. The question is, does the immune system in someone with natural immunity recognize new variants and create more antibodies to stop them? Seems like something the CDC should at least be looking into. But instead, they’re pushing more booster shots and talking about canceling Christmas. Meanwhile, the Epoch Times reports that it could find no exemptions for natural immunity in any vaccine mandates on the state, federal or college levels.

Science requires that thinking change when new data arises to justify it. If you’re going to ignore that basic precept, then at least stop claiming you’re “following the science.”

    Dr. Fauci is always telling us to "follow the science". Well, I did, right to the Penn State Covid dashboard which is updated twice a week. It is interesting to note that the university has had 3 or 4 home football games in a row in one of the largest stadiums in the country and the positivity numbers are going down-0.6% last week and the quarantine dorm is at only 11% capacity. I followed the numbers and came up with the conclusion that Christmas with 107,000 of my closest friends will be fine. Just saying... Thank you for your common sense and accurate reporting daily. You are most appreciated. Blessings!
